comment Storytelling with lie detection
@Lohoris two people method is basically legal separation procedure for magical society with judicial principles. And you absolutely right i doesn`t solve anything really and just move burden to some one else. Real polygraph work this way. There is always expert to say what this graphs really means.

comment How does one become a Black Court vampire?
There is a short story titled "It's My Birthday, Too" by Jim Butcher. Inside it you can find very relevant information to your question. This can help clarify some things from the story-setting position. Sorry, but i can't say more without spoiling story content.

comment How can we make overcoming a language problem interesting?
en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Darmok_(episode) very good storywise source for language/culture barrier. It is from Star Trek universe where universal translator exists, so it is kinda interesting.

comment Shifts in aspect assessments
To get assessment successful you need to meet difficulty by rolling a success i.e. 0 shift is still success. Additional shifts give you more bonuses that depend on skill and situation and gamemaster

comment Shifts in aspect assessments
I agree, but assessments do not create new aspects, they just discover existing one. So we can get a tag on discovered aspect, but no more.

comment I'm having a problem creating a sleeping potion
"Yeah, the object is not to deny a player a potential cool potion in the moment, so much as create the chance for humor and surprise if something goes wrong with the really easy roll. And if they fail it, I wouldn't deny them the potion either - just add the detail that maybe the effects aren't quite entirely as they intended, or some other minor complication." and Leonard Balsera answer to on this one. Lucky day, i say.
