tunnels & trolls rules idea Show more
Problem: Tunnels & Trolls combats with large numbers of dice approach 100% predictability due to the law of large numbers.
Solution: In certain circumstances players can make themselves or their opponents cast a single Die of Fate instead of a regular roll, turning 10d6 into 1d6 x 10. Less fun rolling, more fun opening up possibilities.
What circumstances trigger the Die of Fate though? a big combat disparity against the players? A spell? Large numbers of dice?

So stupid tired. I wonder how many of my problems would go away if I started consistently getting adequate sleep.

I'm so out of the linux world these days it's a real trip being in the middle of a bunch of extreme linux nerds cause I'm in the Fediverse. Hello from my past Linux self, installing FreeBSD 2.2.6 and Debian Potato on a 486/66 which was the mightiest thing I could afford at the time so its hostname was "mightyone"!
Coding with ABBA in my headphones. Living the dream.
