comment Why do my players want to be superman in Dresden Files?
But it is also mentioned in the question, that in the previous two campaigns, the players followed similar tropes with their characters which can indicate that they don't realize (or don't want to) expect other things from a game.

comment Why do my players want to be superman in Dresden Files?
Your players might just be saying, "We want to solve our problems by tearing them apart with our bare hands!" My only comment is that players might not realise it is possible to play any different, they might be applying the logic used in almost all computer games - the stronger the better. Because, frankly, how many computer RPGs really encourage you to not be as strong as possible?

I think this question would fit better in the history SE: history.stackexchange.com

comment What is a good way to get regular people interested in D&D?
One answer to rule them all, one answer to find them all, one answer to bring them all and in the darkness surpass them. This is the best answer ever.

comment What do I do when I suspect players may be fudging rolls online?
In two 5d20 rolls I score eight 1s - 5 in the first roll and three in the other one. Improbable but possible.

comment Systems similar to D&D 3.5
@medivh It's a pretty old question, since then I've moved on to other systems. And what I didn't like about 3.5? Number crunching, complete lack of grittiness, bazzilion spells to know and remember, almost complete lack of focus on things other than battle.

comment Is a trouble that encompasses multiple issues OK?
-1 As it is now this answer has no worth for me. I still don't know why it is absolutely good in the context of the rules, and how it affects the gameplay in the context of your experience.

comment If someone is “Out of Ammo,” can they still shoot until compelled?
I think this answer very well explains what the aspects are but does not answer the question.

comment How can I use a frame story and keep a sense of danger and mystery?
In one book that I read I skipped to read the last page to see if one of the main characters lives. He seemed to, so imagine my surprise when he actually died and at the very end it was his wife seeing his image/ghost taking her to the other world.

comment What makes up the core FATE?
@gomad - yes, 99% of time I'd do that, but I figured since this question asks for pretty simple and "non-disputable" facts it won't hurt. And I was wrong :)

@Tynam Okay, I've unaccepted this answer for now because of wraith's comments - Could you please add references to where these information can be confirmed?

comment Shame him into not shooting: multiple stress tracks in a single conflict
I wanted to ask a little bit similar question some time ago: "Can you, during a physical conflict, defeat someone in social/psychical combat so that they stop beating the crap out of you?" Maybe I should ask it?

comment Low-random, low-dice fantasy rpg system
@Mikalichov What I meant here is a different mindset - in DnD you have a fixed list of actions you can do. Attack, cast a spell, run away, etc. In Dresden Files you can do whatever the heck you wish for - even try to tear out beast's horns. You can attempt to do that at the very least, it doesn't mean you'll automatically succeed.

comment Counting milestones for the death penalty
I think the wording pretty clearly states that you can go to bed between milestones (or rather it doesn't state anything else). But I am no FourthED-er, so I don't know for sure.

comment Are there speed limits on thrown objects in D&D?
I used 'ridiculous' not as "fun to calculate" but "the numbers will be so big that it will be stupid in the funny way". At least that's what this word always meant to me.
