I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

That other one actually was originally 4e and the answers have strong 4e flavor.

Closed as dupe. I can merge the answers over to that one if there's general assent.

I'm sorry, this does not answer the question posed.

I was also wondering if this isn't an effective duplicate of rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/33684/…

@Cthos I am not sure why you would consider a sentence in the spell rules block that mentions a rule condition (unconscious) to be "flavor."

And even usual dodges like Diehard won't work here, as it explicitly says you go unconscious.

comment Is it possible to run a simulationist sandbox game?
Yeah, I assume the core of the question is more "How do I generate sufficient detail such that sandboxers always have something to experience, regardless of what they do?"

comment How does wandering within a city work?
@NetHacker yeah, sometimes people are overzealous in demanding system specificity. We should be specific where it matters and not where it doesn't. (Plus, you are free to ignore people - if they have the diamond or a high rep then they may have good ideas, but not every comment request is valid.)

comment How do I build interesting dungeons?
Just noting, this topic is probably a little too broad - entire books have been written on dungeon creation. Consider focusing on some specific subset of that. Though, answerers, I will note he asked for "how to improve his skills" which might be better answered with references like that instead of your own brainstormed lists of "three things that make a good dungeon."
