comment Suggestions for decreasing metagaming and increasing player immersion?
Expecting people not to metagame is pointless. What you need to do is direct metagaming to helping the game experience you want, rather than hindering it.

If everyone does it, you benefit from other people acting in character.

Getting in character without being influenced by unrealistic XP rewards is immersive roleplaying

comment How to deal with broken combos?
I find it interesting that broken is only in reference to powerful, while nobody ever says that something that conceptually should be good ends up totally nerfed is broken. Probably not a question for stack exchange though.

comment How to deal with broken combos?
I particularly love that solution for the snake. It appropriately moderates the ability, without having to put in some arbitrary restriction or essentially force the character to hold an idiot ball.

comment Who created the idea of Experience Points?
I think the credit system actually does model it. Not sure how it was done in the 70s, but nowadays 120 credits = BA. A BA could be considered a level up. You could also look at it as Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, Senior, each with 30 credits. Certain fields like Engineering require more credits, similar to the different XP tables for different classes.

Yeah, that's roughly what M&M did, although BRP isn't CP based, so it isn't quite as easy a fix.

comment Playing on IRC, getting started
I'm not aware of any IRC channels for RP. I think people who would use IRC would likely prefer to use some sort of RP specific real time software.
