comment Looking for a meta-RPG about escapism in RPGs and the reality of one's actions
Not exactly the answer, but well worth mentioning is the Fiasco playset Dysfunctions and Dragons.

comment How can I make “Empty” rooms interesting?
Honestly, if the PLAYER is carrying a crowbar they can have as much treasure as they want. If the PC goes to those lengths, I see no reason why they couldn't try and invest the effort to snag an extra 100gp so worth of melted copper. If they're inventive let them be.

Pretty sure Megadungeons aren't meant to be cleared out in one session.

comment Handling many similar opponents in combat
I wouldn't put it past a D&D party to try and kill all ~400 zombies. And possibly succeed.

comment An adventure RPG that can be played in only author stance?
Aye, Dark Overlord is similar enough to Once Upon A Time that I'll suggest it here rather than as a separate answer. If OUAT fits the bill, A,DO may as well.

comment Warshaper limits to size
Important bit here, it deals damage "AS IF" it was one size larger. The weapon doesn't actually increase in size category.
