My first language is German. I started playing with Das Schwarze Auge. As a referee I'm lazy and prefer to do things just-in-time. My preferred system right now is Labyrinth Lord.

Note that my info regarding torches was wrong. Note that answers applicable to multiple trolls are better.

comment How to kill a troll in D&D 3.5?
I think Lugh is right in that the PC kills the troll, beheads it (another standard action) and kicks the head away. He then has a few minutes to help fight the remaining trolls (at least 30 rounds which should be plenty). Once all the trolls are beheaded, build a pyre and burn the heads. Once the fight is over, one guard should be enough to make sure any half-regrown limbs are cut off before the pyre is ready.

comment How to kill a troll in D&D 3.5?
I agree in general. But in this particular case I am in fact interested in the solution by the rules because I've had a discussion with players claiming that trolls were even stronger than I had made them out to be as it was going to be practically impossible to kill them and pointing out some problems with my interpretation of the rules. Basically fighting a squad of trolls was going to take at least twice that many characters, because in the end one will have to keep whacking the troll to keep it down while the other takes a long time to try and burn all the pieces.

comment What props or other tools can I use to improve pacing?
I don't understand what techniques and tangibles are in this context. Can you clarify or provide examples? I wanted to answer with an example of how I used retrospectives or flashbacks to fill in blanks when doing a fast forward in the campaign, but then that seemed like a technique to me. Tanglibles sounds like using poker chips or something like that?

comment What can make OGL material harder or easier to reuse in other products?
The example I'm thinking of right now is the Bard's Gate city supplement by Necromancer Games. At the time I wanted to create a community wiki for the book, but found the license to be unusable, and while the main author Casey Christofferson liked the idea, Clark Peterson of Necromancer Games never replied to my emails asking for a separate license.
