Ah, the bug.

Sometimes it is for either more or less complexity.
Sometimes it is to model a particular tactic or aspect of combat that the player wants reflected in their game.
Sometimes it's just for arrogant self aggrandizement.

I can do what I want the way I want to do it. I have done my research and have my own opinions on how to best simulate what happens in real life on the tabletop using mechanisms that are fast, simple and intuitive.

Well when a number friends are noted rules authors it becomes moot.

Lots of folks have not been happy about Ryan Miller's rule's "Fighting sail". It now has it's own Facebook page. Ryan has joined too. Over the last month or two we have been playing around with the rules. Two weeks ago Ryan posted an update of his rules. So "Homebrew Rules" with the Author. It's been fun and good for the rules.
