comment What is an Othur of Burnt Othur Fumes fame?
If the answer is literally that it doesn't exist, that's a pretty good answer to the question. Probably the only thing missing here, Yora, is suggesting what sources you've checked to give us some assurance you've done your research.

comment Can I stick darkness on an enemy with an arrow?
@Erik I've added some reasoning to this answer since your comments.

comment Equivalent abilities?
I've removed your question about removing spellcasting from spellcasters. It's unrelated to the other, and should be asked separately in its own question. You can still retrieve its content in your revision history, which you can access by clicking the 'edited X time ago' link at the bottom center of your post.

comment Where can I find a proper library of free adventures for Fate Core and Accelerated?
@FredHicks Welcome back. This particular Q&A system breaks down around answers left in comments though: answers need to formally go in the answer field where they can receive due attention like peer review, edits, and voting. Answers left in comments get wiped out (sometimes very quickly, sometimes not). You may wish to check out our tour for a quick overview of the site's functionality, though you may already be quite up to speed.

comment Where can I find a proper library of free adventures for Fate Core and Accelerated?
Might also be worth mentioning: search the very same drive thru RPG for Fate adventure supplements with the keyword 'accelerated'. It produces a couple of Worlds of Adventure designed for Fate Accelerated specifically, and other FAE adventures.

comment Can I combine INT boosting Cognatogens with Fox's Cunning?
I've removed the second question, since it's still distinct from the remainder. You should ask these separately. You can still access them via your revision history, which you can access by clicking the 'edited X time ago' link beneath your question.

comment I don't know how to get started with D&D. How do I?
And possibly also What is role-playing, and where do I start? unless you're already quite comfortable with that bit.

comment Mechanics for player retconning
Is that "A" deliberate or a symptom of some kind of glyph font not being copied over? I have no idea, I have barely poked at Apocalypse World's written rules, just want to bring it to your attention in case your attention is called for.

comment Mechanics for player retconning
We have a game recommendation tag and notice here not because it is looking for recommendations of games, but for a game. Our game rec questions have stricter rules than usual: one must have experience using the rules themselves or seeing it done, must demonstrate that experience, must give you advice on how it meets your needs, and so on. Those are our minimum quality requirements to make questions like the one you're asking viable, and it wards off answers like: "use {system made for gunfights}, I've never used it to do that but I'm sure it could!"

comment What are some ways to maximize on a huge strength score?
Are you attached or committed to those classes and class levels? How would you feel about suggestions to alter your class composition, or replace them entirely with something else? (I bet there is at least one available "be a wizard, use these spells to turn into the hulk, gish like it's nobody's business" answer.)

@NotAPumpkin Good news, if you'd still like to do something. ↑ :)

This far down the track, I'm opening the question up to 3.5e material as well.

comment What does 3/6/9 mean for damage?
What uses this notation? I haven't actually seen this used in any book.

comment Creating an artifact that the heroes must destroy?
I added the story tag, since this sounds like story crafting and not a mere GM technique. Change the tags if you feel it is inaccurate.

comment Why are elves immune to a ghoul's paralyzing touch?
@Brilland The OD&D extract in there says: "As stated in CHAINMAIL for Wights, Ghouls paralize any normal figure they touch, excluding Elves." Sounds like it's saying that Elves had immunity to Wights in Chainmail (not necessarily Ghouls), and OD&D might have adopted that for Ghouls on its own. Unless OD&D Ghouls and Chainmail Wights are the same thing?

comment How Should I Change the Star Trek Phaser Table?
@ChristopherMathieu Please check our types of questions we avoid. Asking us what changes we'd make indicates you're looking for a discussion of where to go from here with the feature, which would be quite natural, but should be asked on a forum or in chat or etc. Discussions are a point where our Q&A system breaks down, since it doesn't handle open-ended situations where every answer is equally valid, which is what this would be. It has its niche, and it operates extremely poorly outside that niche, which is OK since there's other sites too.

comment Are there any Handbooks for the “Expert” NPC Class?
@Ben-Jamin You have the option of leaving it open for as long as you want, including forever. You are under no pressure to accept answers.

comment How can I make a short tutorial adventure for Pathfinder?
@SevenSidedDie Again, look at the 4e question that went fine. "Just put them through a basic adventure. Bear these things in mind when you run it." Whatever works solves the problem, and this is easily solvable and fits our system under GSBS coming from some expert advice on what's worked. It does not take much. How to design an adventure is certainly too broad, but this one has specific goals that have been stated.

Actually, I'm going to rename this to ask for an adventure, not a campaign - 1 session or less is not a campaign, just an adventure.
