comment Is there a lower limit to the size of creature a druid can wild shape into?
@AlexisWilke - Indeed, but the spider's sensory systems are attuned to such tasty morsels (in the real world, anyway), so the Druid might have a very good sense of what size and type of cockroach they came near even if they don't care to make use of or remember that information.

One could rule that the druid, as a spider, has the perception of your typical spider, which is to say: not very much beyond avoiding large swooping objects like birds, and recognizing small and close tasty morsels like flies and crickets. (Plus pretty good vibration sense, and a dislike of high levels of carbon dioxide.)

comment How does Shadowrun 4 differ from the previous editions - from an Actual Play viewpoint?
@thedarkwanderer - The hard caps on skills and such really don't provide the same flexibility that the old system did, and there are sometimes good reasons to want people to roll for an outcome that they will usually but not always succeed at.

comment How do I discourage or work with “nuke it from orbit” solutions?
@Zibbobz - I don't think you read the original question, which postulates that the PCs lie about how bad the brigands are until they cross the threshold for town authorities to act.

comment 3d6 vs a d20: What is the effect of a different probability curve?
@RobertF - Try fighting a hundred opponents at once and you'll notice a massive difference between 96.4% and 99.98%.

comment 3d6 vs a d20: What is the effect of a different probability curve?
@RobertF - That's not how 3d6 works--you gradually get better at first, then accelerate away increasingly fast. d20 accelerates away also, but not as fast. Exploding d20s would be even slower (especially if they exploded on 18 or so).

comment Magical machines in the Shadowrun canon?
They're a fusion, but they end up kind of anti-magical, so I'm not sure this counts. It's almost like you take away even more magic than normal in order to get cyberzombies.
