At the beginning of the 17th century, a book of black magic was published, attributed to the mythical Faust and known by the title Höllenzwang. The library in Weimar owned a manuscript of this text, which Goethe was aware of. This document, which is difficult to date, is written in cabalistic signs and, according to a German gloss, contains a series of magic spells for exorcists, which can be used in particular to call up the seven evil spirits.

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?
Yay I'm not consumed with depression and anxiety so far today!
Boss is not into this magic, and thinks I could have used better tools. :\ So it goes.
Bad mood update: did not resist the urge to talk shit about Tokiponists, but I did do it in Esperanto so most of them won't be able to read it.
I'm in the kind of bad mood where I'm prone to get into ill-advised arguments on the internet. Must avoid.
Apparently Happy Rhodes fans back in Usenet days declared her work to be a genre (Ecto) and looked around for other artists to put in that genre, such as Peter Gabriel and, of course, Kate Bush
