Hi, I'm Dr Rotwang! You might remember me from such industrial education films as They Call Him Dr Rotwang!, Dr Rotwang! Is His Name and Stay Out Of the Carboard Smasher. I dig RPGs.

comment How do you adjudicate a chase?
I did something like this for a swoop race in Star Wars a long time ago. I laid out the course as a series of obstacles, each with a Difficulty Number. The swoop pilots had to beat each one in turn, and margin of success or failure determined not only if the obstacle was passed, but also how well -- with modifications to the swoop's current speed. Worked a charm.

comment Which RPGs primarily reward roleplaying your character?
Whoops. Meant to add that this question is interesting in a research-and-history manner, too.

Thanks for reading the blog, cr0m! What ExTSR said is what I meant -- keep ever in mind that the game is what you make of it.

comment Which Traveller editions are (mostly) compatible?
Sorry, migo, but I must disagree. C&C is compatible with AD&D, AD&D 2nd Ed., OD&D, D&D RC and D&D 3.x -- to varying degrees of course. This isn't the place to go into it, but suffice to say that conversions are a snap.

comment What are the minimum stats I need for a Call of Cthulhu combat?
+1, yo -- but I think you can get away without the whole stat block, if we're just poisoning thugs. You might arbitrarily assign a CON score (remember, 10-11 is average!) if it starts to matter, but a full stat block? I'd save those for the important NPCs.
