comment How do you resolve conflict when an absent player's character is played “differently” by another player?
@SevenSidedDie Good edit, I was contemplating how to approach that myself.

comment Help Identify a Medieval City
"My view is that given the flexibility of RPGs these question are on-topic as long as they are clearly related to prep which this one was." - That is not our current policy: real world research questions are on topic as long as they relate to RPG expertise (and an RPG expert would provide a better/different/more specific answer). Whether it's being used in prep doesn't affect whether it stays open or closed, and many questions about real-world research for the sake of prep have been closed.

comment Help Identify a Medieval City
It is definitely around the border of real world research questions that fit well here. On one hand, the primary criteria of the question is: "find me a real world city that looks like this", which requires no RPG expertise at all to determine, and requires a very different set of expertise. On the other hand, you want to do some RPG development with it. It is hard to judge what side of the border it fits on, but I do not think our RPG expertise is sufficiently relevant and leveraged to call this question on topic.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about real-world historical and geographical research.

revised dungeon-design wiki description
the previous wiki was unhelpfully broad. Dungeon design should be for dungeons, we can have other tags for other types of locations (to be worked out as we go). http://meta.rpg.stackexchange.com/q/5630/1204

comment What is the origin of the concept of punishing players in-game as a GM?
This seems to be asking from the perspective of how the behaviour may originate mentally - but the question is primarily interested in the the history of when it caught on, what the key materials involved were, in addition to why and how and other questions. I've edited the question slightly to make this clear (it becomes rather unambiguous at the end of the question).

I'm moving some of the sutff that only becomes clear in the very last paragraph into the first paragraph.

comment Can a wizard cast the same spells on the following day without a spellbook?
@Ruut I've rolled back your edit as it seemed to be a style-choice change that did not have a significant improvement on the answer. (And frankly it would be healthy for us to maintain a habit of not always leading our answers by a big bolded popping first line.)

comment Is it possible to make a vampire PC?
Collin - you may want to do some of your own research before asking these questions. They're attracting downvotes for showing a low amount of research effort. For example, googling "D&D 3.5e vampire character" turns up a lot of discussion on the matter, including discussions of the Vampire template which you don't seem to have come across either (as you're not even mentioning it). The Prestige Class question is problematic for similar reasons.
