To be perfectly honest, I'd rather let our fearless dicta...I mean leader roll for me. I don't really have any dice anymore:( and I lack the time to really use the dieceroller to any great extent. I do manage to post all the time, but that's because I'm always on the computer at work AND home.:)

      obviously there will be circumstances where I'll have to make rolls. 

    ooc: I am sorry, some PBEM I am in have players roll while others don't. I had forgotten that generally you do. 

  Not a problem.  I've been thinking about it for a while.  I think it brings the playing back to the players, and that's always a good thing.  If someone cheats, then they're just robbing themselves of some fun.  Like I said, I'll still have to do a lot of dice rolling, but there's no reason that you guys can't do "I rolled 14 to strike against that ugly ice dragon."

  None of you guys seem like the maniac munchkinites that I've played with in the past, and for the most part I think that's probably a sympton of youth roleplaying.  For me the spectacular failures are (sometimes) the most interesting elements.

  Anyways, game on!
