Gaming Thoughts

Had an interesting discussion tonight about what I consider game balance. We were discussing a game mechanic we have called minimum successes. In the game, these are rare enough, but a good sorcerer or cleric could grant someone the ability to have this. In your dice pool, you sacrifice a certain number of dice, which are immediately a 'success', and then roll the rest as normal.

I know some of you don't agree with my view on gaming, and gaming philosophy. So, to help you, I've put everything behind LJ cuts. :) I do hope you read, and I'd love to hear people's thoughts on these. Yes, some of this I've said before -- but there are new people in the group from time to time, and I do like hearing people's personal experiences, and how it has shaped their philosophies. Outside reflections and constructive comments are always welcome. :)

Angels and Demons

My wife just picked up Inferno last week for White Wolf. An interesting book, deals with demons and such in a World of Darkness setting. Last night, as I was dealing with insomnia, something occurred to me.
