Not only can he fudge math and dice, but Dr. Kromm can divide by zero.

No matter what the equation is, the result is the same. One.

One kick-ass Doctor of Gaming, that is.

Just wanted to point something out to you all.

Dr. Kromm answers our rules questions with patience and understanding. He reads our fan mail, even when it kind of makes his flesh creep. From time to time, he even sees us; in our faux-mediveval armour, with elf-ears (which are probably Spock-ears when you get down to it) and maybe wearing those shapeless smocks and sad little hats that we insist are the attire of a powerful wizard. He smells the whiff of Cheetos, the interesting (to put it mildly) aromatic effects you get when you don't bathe during the week because you are too busy defeating the Evil Lich Overlord and the lingering taint of that six-weeks-old Domino's pizza in the dark corner. He hears the dreams of leaving Mom's Basement one of these years and installing a real Gaming Room in the hypothetical future homes we all hope to have once we find something to do with our lives.

Yet, knowing all this, he still shows up on conventions and talks to us.

How great is Dr. Kromm?

Greater than we'll ever understand. ;)

I hear that Andrew Hackard invented e-mail. Hackard enjoyed his new invention and was able to efficiently communicate with his friends and colleagues. Not to be outdone, Dr. Kromm then invented spam.

Proving that those who try to upstage Kromm will regret it the rest of their lives.

Oh, thats an easy one:

approx 6*10^-9 light seconds. A bit greater if he is hunting errors in a GURPS text (moving at significant fraction of c).

Surely he's taller than a 180 cm?

6 feet plus/minus 5% should be enough of an educated guess, don't you think so? Thats 1,70m till 1,90m enough to capture most male adult humans from western cultures. ;)

Give him a bit more speed, and you can get to 7 feet easily.

Where does the +/- 5% come from? I thought a light second was a constant (as long as we don't muck with c). ;)

From the approx. at the beginning of the sentence. And Christian needs to know the difference between "large" and "great"... :)
