- "I've checked the values in a number of different ways and these comments about bad random number generation don't seem to be significant in the Bloodmoon version. I do remember that original Morrowind random numbers were pretty bad in some cases." -cdcooley
- "Using the output of [Random, 1000] or [Random, 10000] and then dividing by an appropriate factor (say 100) to scale the number down to what you need, will produce more reliable random outcomes than using [Random, 100] or [Random, 10] directly." -cyran0
