Did you mean to say 10 hp per inch of thickness?

comment How to DM mind control effects without angering my friends?
Indeed, if you're that afraid about the idea of making an intimidate check, we could definitely do with knowing more.

comment How to make D&D-like Alignment work
I think so. What this needs is for you to be very clear about the problems you consider to exist, and I think that is satisfactorily explained. (To be honest I'd forgotten I even had a close vote on this question; I thought I'd retracted it.)

comment Can an undead cleric resurrect himself?
A couple of things are needed to make this a sufficient answer: please cite why Resurrection works, and if it's not obvious, your answer would benefit from how the bottle should be used. The citation of why those spells work is important, because it was raised in another answer - and is in doubt, because those spells themselves require the cleric to be destroyed first. (The current top answer has explained the mechanism by which they can be used anyway.)

comment Good system for Jekyll and Hyde games?
If this is posted at Gamedev.SE, be aware of what kinds of questions will get insta-closed. "How should I program this thing?" will be closed very quickly for instance. This might be something you have to work out yourself.

comment Can a Moros mage use Sculpt Ephemera to enhance items indefinitely?
@Jadasc you should probably encourage questions like that to be asked as such, or amended to the question, so that our answer mechanisms can apply and so as to not encourage bad habits in a user. ;)

comment How to make D&D-like Alignment work
@Ciacciu You should elaborate briefly on the important details in your question. Pretend these comments have already been deleted: what would you want to keep?

comment How to make D&D-like Alignment work
@Ciacciu I've added a tentative version of the problem; you may want to edit or elaborate further, but also pointing to answers like this one where the alignment system's usefulness has broken down and its problems are elaborated on would help.

comment How to add invisible ink to a character sheet?
@Mołot Do you know how long this might last? Will it last a few weeks, or some shorter time frame? Also, if it works, you could also use an electrical or gas heater to reveal the ink! (Unless you're from a location that predominantly uses woodfire heating, I guess.)

Thanks, I've edited that into your question. Feel free to edit further, or rephrase or etc.

comment How to add invisible ink to a character sheet?
What is the time frame for which the invisible ink must last? Are we talking within the same session of a few hours tops, or must it last for potentially several weeks?

comment Is there a “sea creatures” RPG system, or would I need to create one?
Indeed, the ideal Fate answer would be something like: "I used Fate to do this. Here's how it worked out, here's where it didn't work so well, here's the mechanics we used, here's the custom skills we settled on," etc. Fate's adaptable to a lot of settings, but not a lot of atmospheres, and we need to be assured it really works out. Even beyond that, learning Fate and knowing how to customise the skills is not a simple thing to begin with, so the guidance of which skills to have will be especially appreciated.

comment Would time travel also be considered inter dimensional travel as well?
I am voting to close this as unclear: what is the method of time travel? If there is one mechanically in the game that is being used, that could give us guidance on the matter. If there isn't one, and this is all homebrew/narrative, there is no answer and asking us for guidance won't be appropriate for Stack Exchange - you'll just get opinions on how it should work, since this would be firmly outside any rules territory or anything we have in common for determining the result unambiguously.

comment Would time travel also be considered inter dimensional travel as well?
@Miniman This is about time travel inside D&D 3.5e (apparently). It's on topic and appropriate. If anything, the concern is that D&D 3.5e might have nothing to say on the topic. That would generally be answer territory, but in this case we're specifically lacking certain details. Which leads to my next comment...

comment Will I lose my undead traits when I'm resurrected?
@KRyan Is that the bit that indicates "and you lose your undead template"? I recognise it could be implied by the fact you turn back into what you were before becoming undead (you didn't have the template at that time).

comment Mechanics of magical attacks
Please add citations once you get a chance. Even referencing the Basic Rules would be appropriate to cite, if they have the relevant text.

comment Can a D&D Necromancer be of a good alignment?
Voting to close as too broad: the mechanics of both Necromancy and alignment differ between editions, and in 4th edition, alignment is mechanically a non-issue (but figuring out how to be a Necromancer might be). This is not a particularly practical question for actual play, which ought to at least narrow this down to a specific version. As is, we can cherry pick from editions which support some extent of good Necromancy, and it may be irrelevant to what the author is willing to play.

comment How do I make adventurer-resistant door opening counters?
Is there a method of determining when such a trap has been disarmed? (Hopefully one that is not itself a disarmable trap.) That would turn this into a mechanism that at least lets the city know when there's somebody in town messing with things. And then Hindsight probably comes into play...

comment How can PCs defeat a magical Necrotic Cyst-based surveillance state?
You missed the source for a link in the Countermeasures section: there is a plain-text [light reading][6].

comment Are these conclusions regarding Magus's Spellstrike and Ring of Force accurate?
I've done some editing which I believe may improve clarity of your question a bit. Among them I've split your list into two sections: the basics you believe (or assert) are the case (points 1-4), and the conclusions you're drawing from those basics (points 5 and 6). I believe this division may assist parsing your logic, but it's probably largely a stylistic choice. Feel free to further edit or revert my edits.
