      Welcome to the Hurt Locker. We’re talking pain. We’re talking violence. We’re
      talking bones snapping, veins bursting, and flesh tearing. We’re talking about how
      to make it in a terrifying world, or how to die trying. We’re talking violence as a
      tool, as a defense mechanism, and as a plot element. If it hurts, it belongs in here.
      -Hurt Locker Chronicles of Darkeness

      Literally the opening/transition paragraph between the epic opening story and the chapter outline; Got me so hyped for the book ^.^. There's too many quotes to cite but I'll definitely add more of my favorites to here.

        I appreciate this thread and will contribute once I find a piece of gold from the old forums.

              I think by and large, I'm known for two things on these forums.

              1) Long treatises explaining stupidly simple things.
              2) Pithy, quipy remarks.

                The best of both worlds

                  Due to being reminded of that funny analogy, I'll appreciate this one XD

                    Bet you never thought you'd laugh at something with the God-Machine and the Judges in it!

                      This one isn't pithy, just dead useful!

                      Some simple(-ish) equations to help crunch two important, but different, numbers:

                      (1 - (0.7^n))*100 = % rate of success for n dice. This is just the binary pass/fail odds, not how many successes you're most likely to roll. So with 4 dice you have ~76% odds of success.

                      The next one takes a bit more writing, even if the math itself is actually easier:

                      n*3/(x-1) = the average successes for n dice. X is either the value of the X-again (10 for default 10 again rolls, 9 for 9-again rolls, 8 for 8-again rolls) or 11 if re-rolls are negated. This is, keep in mind, just the average. It doesn't provide the deviation or similar values. So 4 dice 10-again averages 1 and 1/3 successes, but it doesn't tell you how frequently to expect rolls below or above that number (which is actually fairly frequent).

                      This is not a short cut, though it is heavily simplified from the base math that proves it is true. One of the nice thing about the nWOD dice math is that many seemingly complex math bits simply fairly easily to a basic algebraic equation.
