comment Storytelling with lie detection
Not long enough to be an answer: You cast Detect Lies on Bob and tell me he's lying. Why should I trust you? :)

comment Are class and feat based proficiencies cumulative?
@corsiKa I suppose Boolean (true/false) works just as well as binary (on/off). I'll edit the answer.

comment Can a PC use his Charisma to influence other PCs in D&D 3.5?
@RobertF Specifically, it's self-defeating to try and control other players this way. Because in the end, no rule will prevent them from just getting up and leaving.

comment Dealing with players smarter than me?
@TimothyAWiseman I don't know if there's a practical difference between making up your own variant and cribbing from a different creature (other than it's easier for a new DM to change a name than create a creature from scratch). But the key point remains that the easiest way to deal with a player who memorized the rulebook is to change it. :)

comment How do I handle a group that does not understand the 'assumption rule'?
Aside: if they're never using the rulebook, are they really playing D&D? To my ears it sounds like they're playing a homebrew that just steals liberally from D&D (which would justify the "nothing in the rulebook counts" attitude). But in your place I'd ditch too. Triple-especially since you're already in other groups, so it's not a "this or nuttin" situation.

comment What GM tasks can be delegated to players to speed up encounters?
+1 for the rules piece - there's almost always one rules lawyer at the table (usually me), and why not have them working for you? :)

comment Can we add trains in D&D without breaking the world
If you're adding trains at the beginning of a campaign, you wouldn't even need to change the economy from RAW - those numbers just become the "after" (and presumably stuff was more expensive in the before-times)

comment How do I roleplay a character more intelligent than I am?
@Yandros That could be a mismatch of expectations, though - just because PCs are supermodel astrophysicists doesn't mean the players will enjoy solving physics equations while showing off this season's new swimwear. ;)
