comment Does sneak attack damage do max damage on a critical hit?
Not the DMG. The "Dungeon Master's Book" that came with ... some 4e boxed set or another that I don't have right at hand. That's why I said "Dungeon Master's Book," rather than "DMG."

comment Continuum - why frag now?
@okeefe The causal chain isn't quite that straightforward in this game. And besides, the same frag would take effect even if Brett were just a random psychopath who wanted to mess with spacetime by killing people in the past.

comment Continuum - why frag now?
Jeor - no, definitely not. Being the cause of a paradox doesn't bring frag down upon you; having a difference between "reality" and your known personal history (your Age) or your known personal future (your Yet) is what causes you to gain frag.

Sorry, meant it to be 1968, my mind must have wandered while composing.

comment How would introducing some of the “Unearthed Players Guide” material at the beginning impact an Orpheus game?
I'm pretty sure that's how I ran it - they didn't start with any, but they were permitted to buy them as we went (and I let them review the options for them).

comment How to deal with lack of downtime as a wizard?
@Yamikuronue I've seen this before. GM says "It takes Bob three days to scribe his spell, and then a strange visi --" "Wait, hold on, I want to do X and Y and Z if I've got three days free!"

comment How do I return enjoyment to self-defeating strategies?
I disagree that it's a penalty. Tonight, instead of doing encounters A, B, and C, we did encounters A, C, and D, and got some gold/whatever from dodging encounter B. Same number of encounters, same amount of fun. Just different fun.
