We also talk about alternative ways to determine characteristics, including: starting over from scratch, modifying low rolls, rolling values and then placing them where you want them, point buying, and Sandy Petersen’s “quick fire” method. We also talk about all the different kinds of Batman. Finally, we delve into some of the traditional occupations from Lovecraft’s fiction, including Antiquarian, Author, Dilettante, Doctor Of Medicine, Journalist, Librarian, Police Detective and Professor. By the way, the only additions and subtractions in the whole occupation list from 6th Edition to 7th Edition are Librarian (new to 7th Edition) and Spokesperson (dropped in 7th Edition). There is also the story of Chad’s first reaction to seeing a room with people sleeping with CPAP machines. Discuss this episode on the Campus Forums.]]>
