Why would you roll a d20 in Rogue Trader? It's a d10/d% game. A rogue trader player might not even own a d20...

comment Point Buy system in Maid RPG?
But also, having played maid: Serious, why would you ever play maid (except ironically)? Even if you like the fluff and the idea of roleplaying maids, the system is not particularly balanced in so many dimensions. It is best played as a silly game for laughs, and therefore should be taken with all its flaws and those laughed at too.

comment Point Buy system in Maid RPG?
Having played maid, I understand the need. I can check the rules, I'ld need to check when the stats are normally rolls compared to other things. (I have a feeling doing it after powers were rolled would allow things to be OP, and doing it before would leave you with still lots of balance problems since some powers won't work with some stats.).

comment How do I learn to become a good GM?
My faverate quote on this is from a friend: "As a GM you will be caught with your pants down (unprepared), the trick is to learn to run with your pants around your ankles -- and it ain't easy: you're all exposed and liable to trip"

comment Why do D&D Paladins Have to Be Lawful Good?
There are published rules for paladin's of any alignment in Arcana Unearthed (for 3.0 iirc). So it is clearly a option (some) designers considered

comment What are the rules for combining multiple Fighting Styles?
Those keywords you bolded say that you have to buy each maneuver before buying the next. Ie No 3dots of Aikido, until you first have 2 dots of Aikido.

comment Do the mortal versions of Athanor rely on the spark of Pyros?
Unfortunately rule books so very often have these unexplictnesses, and never clarify. I think the worst for it is the Rivam (promethian) and the question of if they speak first tongue. Never explictly stated.
