+1. On the topic of "harsh", that's certainly what I thought when I read DH's reply... and then I read the second one. Let's do people the basic courtesy of responding as if we believe them when they say what their intent is, and not go out of our way to read something else entirely into it.
And finally, while you do need doom dice of the proper size for certain actions (boosting totals, mostly), you don't need a ton of dice. Keeping the doom pool at 3-5 dice is best, IMO.
RQ -- as in RuneQuest? or is your middle name Quentin? -- has, in the space of two threads, been lambasted for being a DP spendthrift, and for being a DP miser. It's well-known that you can't win, but you really can't win, can you?
That seems like a healthy number of dice to me, too. And perhaps uncoincidentally, the sort of range of PPs players feel "comfortable" in... (BTW, I've completely mislaid the thread this comes up in (did I mention that 'search' is effectively useless here), but is there a rule that 'resets' PPs between Acts, or am I thinking of the 'min PP' XP buy?)
