Pineleaf logic and the RNG From Grandern from Japan on October 29, 2017

  • Before I used to get down about the RNG. I would open a chest and get some useless spell material or a variety pack of lackluster scrolls like Cause Fear or Disrupt Undead. Then I found out about Pineleaf Logic. I learned that stones are sometimes made of granite and trees are usually made of wood. Simply put, if you try hard you might win! Now when I open chests, I get +4 Thieves Tools! Thanks, Pineleaf and Draculetta for a wonderful podcast, 5 stars! Dedicated listener, Grandern
