  1. Was nice to hear the players learning the game a little better, and that the group seems to have a bit more grasp of the tactical game. Too bad the system doesn’t seem to be working out for you though (not that I was actually rooting for Lancer, just sorry you invested time in it).

    On the flat probability distribution (swingyness) of d20 rolls: I know the rppr crew in general like games with percentile dice, including some with very tactical combat (Eclipse Phase) but a percentile die has a flat probability distribution as well, so what is it about those games that makes the “swingyness” of the percentile less of a problem?

    Not sure what a complex tactical game that doesn’t require a map of some sort would look like. I remember playing a d20 glut era mecha game (IIRC, there was an After Hours review of one of the supplements) where combat was run “theatre of the mind” style at our table and I found it unsatisfying. I personally just accept that a tactical game means a map with counters/minis.
