So, these posts are dated at the start of the day after they're about. So this Wednesday post was written after a day of, well, I'm in the USA, so you can probably guess how it's been. And probably going to be for a while.
Regardless of those jitters, I got enough stuff together for Mythic to start thinking about how I'm going to put it all together. It's not exactly clear to me from the perspective of just dashing off code, due to a few factors:
- The chaos factor is consistent over the course of a single roll, and would be nice to avoid passing around overmuch, but it changes at defined points.
- The original fate roll will require user input according to additional factors that are not relevant to the rest of the roll calculation.
- The fate roll may result in additional outcomes after the roll is resolved.
- There's a rules question here that I never asked about, and kind of don't want to; I'd rather just stand by my decision earlier.
I've got some ideas for how to deal with this; in a few cases, several possible solutions to one problem. I'd like to ponder this stuff away from my screen. It's late enough already.
