comment Rule-lite titles available in Japanese (PDF would be even better)
@SevenSidedDie I know that, but a RPG is a perfect occasion to introduce Japanese history and culture. An occasion lost if another setting is used. I suppose a Japanese teacher can as easily adapt a Japanese historical movie and any western movie.

@p.marino Is that really a problem? Dice aren't usually very expensive. Are they difficult to find where the teacher lives? The teacher could have a small pool of dice that he keeps and uses it in different classes.

Just for curiosity. Why western fantasy? One of the things I think should come with learning a language is learning the cultures that speak that language. This is why you read so many articles about that countries on class. I would have thought that japanese theme, be it modern or medieval, should be mandatory.

comment Why would I ever choose rolling hit points?
@TheMorten Each player is different, and each group too. To some, the chance to get a 10 makes worth the risk of getting a 1. Anyway, as I said, rolling for hp is something that has been since always in D&D. Something that if the game was invented today it possibly wouldn't exit, but something that would be missed if removed, due to those historic reasons. And I wouldn't be surprised if in future D&D iterations, rolling is the alternate method instead of the default.

I'm not playing anything. I am trying to help in a forum. I'm interested on both versions.

@eimyr I didn't remember that question, heh. The thing is, as clear as all the other games are about ti, WtA is strangely silent. That's why some folks I'm having a discussion with say that in W:tA you can't dodge an attack made with higher initiative than yours.
