    Well we are on the codex, so yes please.

    Actually today is much busier at work, so I wouldn't have the time, but I'm glad we agree.

    Sure, and left-handed and right-handed dice go in different directions (and apparently the poles of a d100 are less likely to show up).

    Based solely on feels, a graze feels worse to me than a miss cause it feels like I scored a hit but it was deemed a shitty hit. And when I'm hit with a graze it feels like the enemy rolled a miss but ended up hitting me anyway.

    Chance vs probability, are they the same thing ? :troll:

    but the difference goes deeper than that

    Suppose there are two systems: a 100 sided die, and a hat with 100 papers with a unique name on each one. Suppose that we know that one of the systems is biased and will not function properly. We roll the die 5 times and get [2,4,5,1,3]. We then pick a paper from the hat 5 times (replacing the one we've picked each time before the next pick) and get [Stacy, Becky, Chad, Tom, Bill]. What's the probability that the die is biased? And the hat?

    I understand what you're getting at, and I'm familiar with how numbers are distributed across dice (actually the specific pattern for d100 was unkown to me, but I am familiar with the approaches used for say a d6 or d20.)

    In that case it's much easier to tell that the die is producing numbers from the low end at a rate that we wouldn't expect (though with 5 observations it could just be freak chance; but unlikely). This is all assuming the distribution and "roll/shake" for the die/hat are fair.

    All of this is kind of beside the point for pRNG in a game though, since it doesn't use a physical die. I do see how me saying "the numbers assigned are arbitrary" was incorrect, or imprecise, but I meant it in the context of the game's rolls and not the physical placement of them on a die. That was my bad.

    Out of curiosity, what is your background btw?

    Absolutely agree with this.
    Don't like it when it spelled right into your forehead, I like when it's remain not spoken, but understandable from a context.
    Figure of paralipsis?

    But let Vince make his own game.
