comment Creating a group plot arc in Changeling: The Lost
Actually (nothing personal, really), it's, like, the most cliché plot of all the RPGs. I wouldn't be enthusiastic about it. It's not bad per-se, but it's so overused pretty much every-fucking-where I'd keep it as a last resort, and I'd be hesitant even in that case.

comment How can I play dumb?
You need an educate and non-chaotic group to do that, otherwise at the first pause someone will just talk over you.

comment How can I play dumb?
I like the dumb-telligent but not its quota. If "clever" characters often go out of their way with too complex explanation for stuff, it is perfectly normal for the dumb character to bring them down to Earth every time this happens.

comment What alternative models exist for Vampire populations in WoD?
10 blood points is not "fatal, hence 4 pints". 10 blood points is the total blood in a human, that is 5L. AFAIK a human can suffer up to 1L blood loss without needing medical treatment, I'm not sure about 3 blood points, and unless I'm mistaken anything more than 2L would kill them.

comment Mitigating conflict in a 'mixed' nWoD game
Maybe I am overly simplifying it, but to me it looks like just a case of bad roleplaying. If their characters have no reason to hate each other, and have some strong reason to cooperate, either they do it or they're playing badly.

The GM should never be in the condition of "not understanding" an ability, how could that possibly happen?

comment Balancing a mixed game in nWoD
It is worth notice that in a setting where - for whatever reason - no one can use his powers, everyone would be more or less on the same grounds; that's not an answer to your question, but it would be quite an interesting setting.

comment How can I treat old and new players fairly, without upsetting anyone?
This is doing it wrong. If you roll a dice, the result stands. If you don't want to accept a result, adjust it before rolling, i.e. rolling a lower dice for damage, avoiding "save or die" in the first place, etc.

comment Pre-modern farming: What percent of the population is in agriculture?
It is worth pointing out that the two top voted answers have radically different figures: 21:80 vs 10:1

@Eugene: if they are so immature, the campaign is doomed anyway.

comment How can GMs evoke the tone of danger in an RPG?
Music adds atmosphere, and the right atmosphere enhances any given sensation that is already present. So, while it helps, it is not a solution.
