  1. Does "A" have more options or simply more detail?

  2. I vote for B. Only because I like things simple.

    I was just reading a new Grognardia post. His, and your, post have me thinking about my old Morrow Project stuff, packed away in the basement.

  3. @Paladin: Again...you. What's this? Like the sixth or seventh time that I have posted right after you in the last day or so?

    Simpler is better. I opt for B, unless the additional information is crucial in some way to game play.

    What did you decide on this? I'm curious to see what direction you are going.

  10. Hmm. A good reason for Pro 'A'.
    --I can certainly appreciate what you've said.
    ---Would you like to expand upon this for all of us? How would this extra detail aid you with on-the-fly adventures?

    Thanks! :)
