This is his response to other nerds complaining that his random number generating software wasn't random enough.

If you still complain about lack of randomness and donate money, one of the dice will be melted flat and mailed to you to teach the other dice an object lesson.

wtf japan
Real gamers play with ivory.

Until he fixes his Axis and Allies games, I will continue to complain to him. He only has first version rules, and he doesn't make loading and unloading troops a half move for the transports, so the US can land troops in Western Europe in 1 turn without risking fighters, bombers, and submarines on the way.

Damn Tyranid players...

I thought the exact same thing. I was too ashamed to post it first.

I find this oddly relaxing, and take solace in knowing even with this level of complexity, my character would STILL have less than 12s in 5 out of 6 attributes for D&D.
MrBuddy
I was wondering what would happen if he put 20 sided dice in there. Pretty boring video until you see the computer screen displaying the result of each dice roll. THAT impressed me! Five cool stars.

Why would he run the software on Windows of all things?
dr_rock
Maybe he made the GUI in Visual Basic, to track the IP address.

*shudder*

VB is... I wouldn't touch VB with a 10 meter cattle prod.

VB is more than adequate for the software being used here.

I get the feeling this is one of those machines that ends up destroying the universe somehow.

Only if he rolls a yahtzee with all dice. The chances of that are-

Just put cans of beer in it.

That was the last time the DM allowed Jones to cast his epic level "Super Fireball".

I love the THAC0 tag.

And this is just about what you'd need to calculate damage in an "Exalted" campaign, I think.

There's not enough dice in the world to run an "Exalted" game, and yet, there's nobody who plays it. A curious paradox.

PurpleXVI
You'd need D10's for that, tons of D6's is Shadowrun.

And, you know the awful thing? There ARE people who play Exalted, and every last one of them is completely fucking obsessed with it. It's got that White Wolf curse where, sure, it has a decent concept, but also an atrocious system, some hilariously bad fluff in places and every last player writes fanfics about his character.

Comeuppance
"Religious" tag.

Beat that, Binro.
