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.

comment A “perverted” guide to morality?
You call this system-agnostic but then trot out "lawful evil." Do you really mean just "how do bad people feel self-justified" (a basic psych question) or do you mean "how does one depict specific alignment behavior as something else" (in which case this is a D&D question)?

comment Can a spellcaster know why a spell failed?
It could, if you add a lot of stuff not usually considered part of the magic system (like a return code). You could certainly set up a sim magic system where you do know, but I'm addressing this as usually found implemented in stock D&D.

comment How do I stop my players from jumping to conclusions?
I agree, this could be [dungeons-and-dragons] or [system-agnostic] as easily. (The [dnd-4e] answer is "if you don't have a "make an axe" daily power you can't do it, right?)

comment How to reveal plot hooks & other information when NPCs' survival depends on secrecy?
OK then please edit the question into a more coherent/concise statement of that if you would.

comment How to reveal plot hooks & other information when NPCs' survival depends on secrecy?
Can you explain your problem more clearly without relying on those two older questions? What is the core of what you're asking here? "How are PCs supposed to investigate and get information from people who aren't inclined to give it out?"
