Re: Play-by-Post D&D game DM'd by Frimble

Some watchmen salute you as you pass, some beggers ask you for coin, a number of commoners (including the little girl with the bag of sweets) stare at you and every dog cowers at the sight of Tritos.

Assuming the concept of "limit" could be extended to sets... If the limit exists, there must be a k for which N k gets arbitrarily "close" to that limit. But this is not the case. No matter how large k is, N k is an infinite set, and therefore can't be "close" to the e...
