I see Thac0 is still the huge debate it was over 20 years ago. Good to know things never change, but do have random() quips about statistics. Am I the only one who found this thread to be a good laugh? :)
I know I'm a few years late but I'll probably keep dev'ing on ROM until I'm dead because fun. For posterity, I just got rid of number_bits all together and replaced those calls with the number_range equivalent which is far more readable and in some cases as pointed here more efficient (like that call in the Thac0 that while loops until it's under a number, blech).
