heh. Who is a nerd ? I'm a nerd. Y'know why ? I woke up in the midddle of the night with the clear thought running through my head: "the rules for the new alchemy spells are broken because difficulty modifies effect, and taking a high difficulty means taking a lower effect, so why bother." Granted I didn't shout it out loud, waking wife and kids, nor did I dash to the keyboard in unstockinged feet; but I did jot it down on the notepad by the bed, the existance of which, I admit is further proof of my nerdiness.
So, I'll be fixing the rules presented in the last post. Stay tuned.
