comment As a GM, how to react to players challenging contradictions in your narration?
Maybe you need to ask yourself why they keep on it. I don't really understand your disease example - so did you tell them you made a mistake, or did you tell them "yeah that's weird, investigate?" Because it can't be both.... If you are just confusing them of course they aren't going to drop it, they are desperate to understand what the heck is going on.

comment How can I keep players occupied so they stay motivated, interested & on topic when I'm reading published materials during a session?
I wonder then if you should be asking a question about your real problem - "How do I prep a published adventure and remember what's in it" - as opposed to one very narrow solution you've pre-decided on.

comment Can you grapple a swarm?
Whatever it is, it shouldn't be discussed in comments here...

comment Why is the soft level-cap set at level 20, specifically?
It's different in that 2e core said "go up to level whatever using these rules, we've put the first 20 in a table for you" and then published a book of higher level options, while 3e core said "go to level 20 and wait for a book of higher level options for more." Do you mean is "High-Level Campaigns" much different from Epic Level Handbook? Yes very.

comment How should I role play a madman NPC?
Yeah, I'm afraid this isn't answerable in its current state, especially since "I want to act like a madman" is clearly not linked to any real mental disorder and is instead a generic "pretend to be all fish-kissing wacky like they do in them B movies and games".

comment How should I role play a madman NPC?
The edits have made this more off topic (as a game-rec), the original could probably have been cleaned up and made more like 'roleplaying a dragon' (with a lot more detail from the OP - "madman" is not very specific).

comment What Should I Bring To My First RPG?
+1 game stores don't generally give you dice they sell them, with Star Wars intro events definitely being a likely exception.

comment Do modifiers from Theologies only count for 1 single skill each?
Can you back up that answer in any way? "Some guy said yes" is unlikely to help the OP, as it's clearly one of the two possible answers.

comment Reduce a one-hand weapon to a light weapon?
Also whether you really need the weapon to become Light, or just to be usable with Weapon Finesse (those are two things, and there's more options for the latter than the former).

comment Can incendiary arrows be put out and re-ignited?
In case the OP doesn't know, it might be worthwhile adding the general rule on ammo here (Generally speaking, ammunition that hits its target is destroyed or rendered useless, while ammunition that misses has a 50% chance of being destroyed or lost.)

comment Can incendiary arrows be put out and re-ignited?
Ranged Tactics Toolbox doesn't say anything more about those arrows or the new ammunition types in general (all the others are only as expendable as normal ammunition, being different head shapes and suchlike).
