Zack: Steve nobody misses THAC0, not even the dude who invented it.

Steve: Yeah, well, the next time you need a base target number as a statistic that you then adjust positively or negatively based on the cumulative armor value of a dude, let me know, because I know it, and it ain't in the rules.

Zack: I'll put you on my speed dial.
