Still not compatible. Do you think you could post a description of what you have done?

@jprete good point about the catch. I suppose I could forgo movement and use the move action to sheath the thrower again. Thanks!

comment How do I make a dungeon the party will not know they are getting lost in?
Sort of related to what you are asking, I'd suggest reading "House of Leaves". It's kind of a modern psychological horror novel. It's definitely a different sort of book, and deals a bit with mazes and the terror of getting lost even when you know the way back... amazon.com/House-Leaves-Mark-Z-Danielewski/dp/0375703764

comment How do you track the PCs' reputation?
Nice answer. I agree that having a number really doesn't make sense. Better to just keep a list of important events and the factions that are aware of them (maybe with a +/0/- notation next to it.), then judge on the fly how the PCs are doing with the group in question. In particular, standing with a faction may vary based on where they are encountered. PCs might not have good standing with faction A in the town where they openly opposed them, but running across them 100 miles away in a hostile land, they might find them to be allies.

comment What tools are useful to organize a GM's campaign notes?
That is really neat! The same guy has a program called Labyrinth for plot threads that might find a place in my campaign managment.

comment How to handle a rules-lawyer player?
@CJM More like delegation. If the player in question is used to GMing (or possibly more experienced), he might just get off on rules and the applying of structure to chaos; just another way to enjoy the game. Nothing says you can't turn his powers from good into awesome! Some RPG books even suggest enlisting players to help with combat and other number-crunchy phases of play. In the end, it might just be more important to the GM to tell their story, and less important to micromanage mechanics.

This related question as an answer which might help you out. Maybe turn the tables on your rules lawyer in a useful, non-confrontational manner. rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/4317/…
