@TOZ: I think "infinite" might be a bit of an exaggeration. XD Most religions feel that a deity (or deities) 'act', which tends to weight things towards success. We want to avoid the Bandwagon Fallacy, of course - being the largest religion in the world doesn't make you correct, but on the whole, things are probably weighted in the direction of the larger religions. Isn't trying to use logic with unknowables fun? 8D
It's a wonderful thought experiment, I've just found that Pascal was far too limited in his argument for it to carry weight. When I say infinite, I refer to the fact that any afterlife you can imagine is a possibly alternative, as every single religion or belief could be wrong. Thus, any other possibility may be the correct one. Any kind of prize can be behind door number one, and if you have to guess what it is before you open it to win, you're almost certainly going to lose. A larger consensus is just more people being wrong together, not more evidence they are right.
It's just an unavoidable effect of the number of players in PFS.
I fundamentally disagree. Instilling a community value of trusting your GM or VO when they answer the question will go a long way to stopping it. The question will be asked and answered without ever reaching the campaign staff.
The campaign coordinator should not be treated as 'mom' when 'dad' gives you an answer you don't like.
The Roll of TOZ (Let 'em fall, maaaaaaannnnnnnnn!):
captain yesterday: 1d21 ⇒ 6
DJEternalDarkness: 1d21 ⇒ 10
Freehold DM: 1d21 ⇒ 20
Misterhabs: 1d21 ⇒ 5
N.Jolly: 1d21 ⇒ 5
Rednal: 1d21 ⇒ 13
Uncle Teddy: 1d21 ⇒ 17
Whack-a-Rogue: 1d21 ⇒ 4
Zesdead: 1d21 ⇒ 17
Freehold DM wins the dice off, coming oh so close to that perfect number. Freehold, buddy, you've got up to $15 to spend on any 3rd party PDF. Merry Christmas!
Alright gang, check my work here. I have compiled...The List of TOZ. Let's read it off, maaaaaaaaannnn.
The List of TOZ:
If you didn't win a gift so far, and you're not on the list, shout out with your rolls so I can put you on. If you're on the list and DID receive a gift, let me know so I can take you off. Once all the final winners are wrapped up, we'll see who gets The Gift of TOZ. (At this moment, it appears that grimdog73, Rednal, and ShadeKyubi do not have rolls that add up to that sublime number. Hopefully the last roll will fix that!)
