   Yep, but this problem is greatly mitigated by the infrequency of having
to roll six dice for anything, which (compared to rolling fewer dice) is a
rarity.  In all my TFT playing I've only seen six dice rolled once.

   I like it.  Metric is better and easier, and works just fine even in a
non-historical fantasy setting (such as Cidri and the majority of campaigns
out there).
   Despite all the undereducated "Bubbas" in this country, metric /is/
slowly creeping into our culture.  As Justin mentioned we already have soda
measured in liters, so everyone now has a good idea what a liter is.  A
metric ton is pretty close to an English ton.  88 kph is the same as 55 mph.
A meter is about the distance from a doorknob to the floor.  Now we just
