I am a young gamer that, has only recently expanded into DMing. I have played board games and D&D with my father (Acedrummer_CLB ) and brothers for the last 8 years off and on and have been in several other gaming groups both 3.5 D&D and 4e.

I am trying to learn all I can about the hobby I have grown to love and hope that i can find help (or give it when the call arises)

side note: I am a little bit of a rule Nazi at times, bare with me this too shall pass.

comment Using Archer abilities with Swords
@SevenSidedDie that is the problem with rpg design (even the ones that start off with an intro page that says that Role playing/ running the game is less rules and more rulings) they all seem to elevate the rules in the books higher then they should be. It jest boggles me to think that the rules need to be written by some one else in a published format for some people to accept it. In short it is the books that ask players to look through the books to verify that the GM "Keeps To the rules" that makes being a GM hard.

since when dose a DM have to search the rules to find a good reason to ban the broken? If you think it will brake the game have him change it, add in proficiency restrictions if you like. You are the Game Master, Make the call you are most comfortable with.

comment Does the Manifester Weapon allows a psionic character to have more power points than max?
@ chaos: I have not encountered anything that says otherwise, I know that for healing that the terminology is always regain which is does not allow for over the maximum. I could not find the rules on Power Points, but it was more the wording of the item power, It trumps the normal ruling anyway.

comment How to run a chess inspired D&D4E encounter?
this sounds like a trap to me, not really a combat but more of an interactive puzzle/ trap that forces the players to use chess strategy to get across a room.

well I have been talking to everyone in the party, and it seems that the whole adventure got off to a rocky start, I had each player tell me about their characters and why they would take up the call. the only person who had no clue how to answers was my "problem" player, after we worked out why the character was there he seemed to be more interested in the adventure and and the character is now invested in the story. thank you for the suggestions they were helpful.

I am not sure if that is the actual reason why his character is the one that wont's to run, but it might be part of it he is playing a Drifter someone who looks out for number one.
