comment How can I play dumb?
This reminds me of when I played a half-ogre. Party mage was running away and the rest of the PCs told me to bring him back. He cast Suggestion or Domination (DnD 3.5) at me when I was dragging him back and said "Put me down". I did it. "Hit this wall with you head" he said, so I grabbed him again and proceeded to attack the wall with my bald spot (it survived). I guess not being able to remember too many things can sometimes help your character.

comment Systems similar to D&D 3.5
Is there some kind of "rules-lite" document available? I'd like to read more about this system without having to go through the whole book :).

I will look into it if/when/should I have free time. I used to like some Warhammer books as a child so I have fond memories of the universe (though when I read them again as an adult the same books seemed silly and low quality).

Shucks, even if I wanted (I won't say I don't, I just don't have opinion) it wouldn't work - the players who I play with don't like Warhammer. Actually they ridicule it on each step, primarily because they once played through character creation with an awful awful GM, it's kind of traumatic experience for them :).

Which is why I mentioned only a grain of it.

comment Role playing/plot focused one shot sessions
Yea, unfortunately. One lesson learned though, don't play RPGs with this guy - he was actually playing in one of my one-shots before, and back then he also couldn't remain serious even for a minute (yes, I wrote above that he never played before, but he did, once). Anyway, thanks once again for your post.

comment How do I resolve the conflict between realism and uniqueness when designing campaigns?
After half a year of slow gaming I've got a bit more experience and I can safely say your last paragraph couldn't be more true. More than once I had a situation, where I gave my players a problem, and then listened to them coming up with their own solutions and how it is possible - if I hadn't had ready explanations, I'd just have to listen and chose one I like most.

comment How to introduce item descriptions
Yea, I can't disagree with you. My main concern with them writing things down is still the fact, that they quite own just scribble some illegible or out of context notes which one, two, three, four sessions later require our whole group to unify their brain cells in order to decipher the writing. As for slowdowns making game better - for a quick I'd guess it is that players need some time to "parse" or "digest" the good moments, and so the slowdowns are useful; a constant stream of action will quickly become monotonous.

comment Role playing/plot focused one shot sessions
For any curious souls out there, the session was a pretty much disaster. We went with something along the lines as Joe mentioned in the comment. As unlikely as it is, two of my usual players were really nice, helpful and didn't try to make my life harder. My friend and his girlfriend, who were the main characters were the problem (they never played before). He refused to be serious, and she was probably too intimidated to play well (she is a pretty shy person). Suffice to say, they did not uncover the plot at all, though they managed to get the villain... grounded by her father :).

comment How to introduce item descriptions
Just to make sure I wasn't misunderstood in the question - I have nothing against item descriptions taking time, I only referred to the fact that after the item appears players take time to write it down which boggles down the moment a bit. Aaand players don't like to have to write too much. Nevertheless great advice (as always) which made me question my Game Mastering skills to be honest.

It is kind of popular in my group... I mean it was when we were still playing DnD, as we are off to different shores now.
