Well if I had the skills to script stats I'd probably do that myself too,
but as I don't it's easier to get players to do it, and because gamebooks
can be written without knolidge of programming, it does mean people like the
gm of chronicles of arborell, who's a truly amazing writer but has no skills
in programming whatsoever can have their work available for people to play.
Also, I myself don't particularly see dice rolling and keeping of a
character sheet as actually so much work, though I have met people who
catagorically reffuse to do it.
I suppose sinse I have done a fair amount of tabletop rp, and indeed play a
game of mutants and masterminds every saturday using Gma dice and ms word to
write a character sheet, my perception might be different from other people.
Beware the grue!
