50% any 4

Quick question:

Using the treasure generation table, if it says something like "50% any 4" under Magic Items, do I roll the 50% chance 4 times, with each determining whether a magic item is present, or do I roll once, and you will get either 0 or 4 magic items?

According to Alex in this post, it is the second.

I personally prefer to do it the first way, because I don't mind rolling more and it more predictably generates results closer to the average.

I vote whichever way gets us more treasure! (Knowing your rolling, probably the one with more chances :D).

I'd probably vote for 1st option just because I dislike all or nothing, but Alex confirmed it was the 2nd...so swing away!

Every campaign is a law unto itself! Also the two generate the same results given enough rolls, so pick the one you like!
