comment Is this a good way to represent the inability to capitalize on attacks in Fate Core?
It sounds like you don't want to represent "the inability to capitalise on attacks", you just want a combat system that strongly encourages setting up attacks via teamwork in order to make any difference, and encourages disrupting an enemy's set-up as a means of keeping your teammates alive, and also embraces high lethality. Is that accurate?

comment Does copying a spell from a scroll into your spellbook consume the scroll?
@NanbanJim An answer stating as such is a good way for that answer to demonstrate its relevance: "There aren't any rules about this thing. A previous edition uses this rule, which worked well in that edition, and works well in D&D 5e as well. I suggest you use it."

comment What's a good fast-combat system that scales to 6-10 players?
In your third to last paragraph, do you mean turn times (each player) or round times (every player)? 10 minute turns means you'd take an hour and a half to finish the first round of combat.

revised Do any Heavy Gear books cover landships?
since this is an uncommon game system to come up here i'm also mentioning it in the title for clarity (and sort of to pre-empt someone suggesting a D&D 3.5e book)

comment Playing with a Doppelganger disguised as a hero?
@Wink Might want to consider how that comes into conflict with the goal of "so it's not real easy for the players to figure out who the actual person is".

Hi DWalker, and welcome to our site. D&D has gone through many revisions with many different types of sound logic. You should be answering based on the version the player is actually using. If other editions' rlules are relevant, you should demonstrate that they're relevant and compatible with the edition being played. Providing a previous edition's rules alone does not necessarily make for a good answer - if people were doing that with 4e (either answering 4e, or answering using 4e), we may have nonsense.

@daze413 Among many tables, metagaming is not seen as a bad thing, and in fact may be standard fare for play. We embrace that fact. Something seeming like metagaming is therefore not itself a problem.

@trekkieyk I've done some editing to try and better express some parts of this issue. Please check it over and see if you're OK with it, and edit further if you'd like.

I invite you to elaborate on the context and significance of this quote and connect the dots between that quote and "players can fail a saving throw if they want." A single brief quote intended for a very different context and participant (the DM), from a book the player might not even have, with a snappy "No worries" does not provide much clarity or enlightenment for newbies.
