50 gold says that DiesInaPit will die in the pit.
If it's true that our species is alone in the universe, then I'd have to say the universe aimed rather low and settled for very little.
-George Carlin


Whenever you find that you are on the side of the majority, it is time to reform.
-Mark Twain


I thought this must be obvious to everyone else, as it seemed obvious to me; and that, if once it became apparent that we were on the edge, all the Great Powers would call a halt and recoil from the abyss.

When faced with an encounter involving a predatory creature, a Tasty Person must make a Charisma Check. If the DC (15) is met, the creature will attack the Tasty Person to the exclusion of other targets who are not also Tasty People who have met this DC. The DC should be modified for monsters with a strong sense of smell, I leave this to your discretion as a DM. The monster is not forced to attack the Tasty Person if doing so would cause it to take an attack of opportunity.
A Tasty Person's starting class should be treated as his favored class.

I'd have to agree on this.

Though, if you give him 1-5 odds, that must mean you give me 5-1 odds! So I'll be putting up 6001 gold, please. :evilgrin:

Why are all the odds here so off?
Asks, you should give knucklekraken under 2 times his money if it's an 50/50 split. 2 times does not make a business, and more than 2 is economical suicide.

You will give kraken 1.8 times his money, and you will do so for I am your evil conscience.
You will also give m0rt 1.8 times his money. This will put them under the gun, as they have to think they have more than 50% chance of winning, and betting will be more exciting, because there is something on the line!

YOUR EVIL CONSCIENCE DEMANDS YOU TO! MWAHAHAHAHAHA :evilgrin:

But that would guaranteedly grant him a net result of 0! Therefore, he must put the stakes at 0.9 or something! :roll:

Asks conscience didn't mean he would just GIVE you the money. You just get them if you win m0rt! No tricksies!!!

Also, math says otherwise.

Nope.

Knuckles gives you 6000 gold if he loses. He gets 30000 if he wins.
M0rtimer gives you 6001 gold if he loses. He gets 30005 if he wins.

You, Asks, either win 1 gold or lose 5 gold, so you are actually betting on Knuckles.

What you should do is arrange a percentage of the original amount that you will keep no matter what.

E.g. they pay 6000, you take 1000. Then they lose 5000 or win 25000. Not a big difference, but you get 2x1000 in any case.

Wonderful!

Shares, I did not mean Asks bets, cause they are totally off the wall. I said he'd have to give each of them 1,8 times the money if they won. It'd not lose him money statistically base on the assumption that it is a 50/50 chance of the winner.

In a bet with two possible outcome, both odds can not be better than 2 or you will always lose money.

This says asks evil economical conscience.

Yeah, you'd be looking at asks getting 6000*1.8=10800 back if he won, and m0rt getting 6001*1.8=10802 if he won. The establishment makes either 1200 or 1198 gold for this bet. They can't both win. And they don't get any of that money back if they lose, so 1.8 is a pretty good base.

Set odds at 9:5 odds for both of them. You'll come out ahead.

What's this!? Another conscience!? It's right though. Make sure the payment you give is smaller than the payment you get. If you get 12000 total, pay 10000 out to the winner. That way you ALWAYS make money!

Noooooooo

Your doing it wrooooooooong

That would be greedy, since you'd be walking home with 9000 gold! You would atleast have to give that amount to the winner and then keep the 3000 gold!

... Well, I think you should, but it's not like that I'm in control of the betting... :shifty:
