  • That's exactly what metagaming is - using player knowledge (i.e. science) to argue with and bend the game rules (which are abstracted for good reasons) in favour of the player's desired outcome.

    Metagamers are generally speaking not fun to play with and can't be argued with because they will use all the cheap debating tools at their disposal to try and get their own way, they're not actually interested in the answers, only in getting to their end goal....

  • _Vicissitude_ completely gets rid of the very serious problem of rejection by the immune system _because it's magic_


    Honestly I feel like the original question, and many of the others recently asked are just there to start an argument. It also reminds me of the sort of metagaming that used to be so prevalent e.g.

    Depending on how fast you want it to be deciphered you could require hourly or daily rolls and anything from two to ten successes to decipher the code.
