comment Does a dead pixie count as nonmagical food for the purpose of Purify Food and Drink?
+1, but I think the biggest issue is whether the spell will purify out the effect the PCs want.

comment Whose job is it to make the game interesting?
I downvoted, largely due to the general tone and specifically due to the paragraph @KorvinStarmast pointed out. This doesn't seem constructive.

comment What is Player Agency and what is it good for?
Very nice answer overall. I think you can find a better example of violating principle three than scrying. That doesn't even seem like a violation, since it involves an intelligent agent doing things they wouldn't know about. You're walking down the road and lightning randomly kills a party member might be more apt. Something along those lines.

comment Do Power Sources really matter?
This is a question, not an answer. If such things exist, include an example, and it's a good answer.

comment when to announce effect?
@DynasXV I don't think it's ever occurred to me or anyone else in my group that "the result" could be anything other than hitting or missing. A number on a die is not a result, it's a part of the calculation that leads to a result.

comment What does the “+½ hit point” favored class bonus mean?
@Maldrek If this answer fully answers your question, remember to accept it. If it doesn't quite answer it, feel free to wait for more. You can always change the accepted answer later if a better one comes along.

comment How can I deal with PC access to myriad sources of subtly conflicting information in a game where those conflicts matter?
@thedarkwanderer Yeah, that does sound like a problem. I mean, if you have to produce details... then you have to produce details. The two of you might have to make some concessions to time and just live with crappy details. Here's something related that occurs to me: How to deal with overzealous questioning from one player?

Dolgan, I asked this question over on English SE, and Seven provided an answer good enough for me to accept.

comment How to deal with a player that gets annoyed if the party disagree with her?
If it only feels like maybe the player was annoyed, on top of the PC being annoyed, then are you sure you actually have a problem? I mean, do others feel annoyed? Have you asked them? Have you asked the player if they're annoyed? Confirm the problem through discussion before trying to solve it.

comment How can I deal with PC access to myriad sources of subtly conflicting information in a game where those conflicts matter?
@thedarkwanderer Would it help if the resolution ended with "you choose a very appropriate present" without then asking them to describe it in detail? I mean, not being specific doesn't conflict with verisimilitude. The only conflict is when you're specific and that specific thing is inconsistent. The example from Apocalypse World seems sufficiently non-specific regarding the exact nature of the present, while focusing on what's important, which is how it's received.

comment Do dragons rest in the air or on the ground?
+1, This argument based on a real-world creature seems like a great answer. Not sure if Miniman wants you to compare to a real-world dragon? Might want to explicitly note that the article says the birds sleep while flying: "Scientists have found that migrating birds can fly for 200 days straight, eating and sleeping while soaring through the sky." and "The team concludes that “swifts do at least to some extent sleep while airborne.”"

comment Can Destructive Wave be triggered on a ship by striking the deck or an open container of earth (“ground”)?
Is the word "ground" used anywhere else in the rulebook? There might be another usage that would set a precedent.

comment Does putting a Portable Hole into a Bag of Holding allow a saving throw?
I want to downvote this on principle, but I guess it's an on-topic question, technically.

comment What is the intended amount of encounters per session in 4E?
+1, This is a great answer. I just want to add that it also doesn't hurt to switch things up. My 4E group plays every two weeks for 3 hours. Some sessions we fight the entire time, other sessions there's not a single round of combat.
