In a world where science is supposed to reign supreme, we find ourselves to be a very superstitious lot when it comes to our wargaming. Whether it is something we believe as fact, or something we have observed to be true time and time again, we find ourselves giving credence to things that can’t be proven scientifically.
For instance: your friend Gary is a Nuclear Physicist and will use every chance he gets to tell you that your world view is wrong because –science! Meanwhile, if you happen to touch some of his dice, he will immediately retreat with the soiled dice to a sacred moonlit hill in the countryside and proceed to chant his cleansing hymns in a robe while tossing the dice in warm goat’s milk and stir it with raven feathers. After a week of soaking, his dice are back to normal and he will go back to being smug. Gary is serious about his dice.
