Yeah. I'm here, I'm awake, I'm ready to work. I think that's about as good as it gets most mornings.

comment How do I handle a group that does not understand the 'assumption rule'?
@Aviose, house-ruling is a whole other thread, however the case you state I would run RAW, decide RAW sucks then ask the players for input on any ideas outside of game. Once it is a house-rule, it's not really rule-0 in my opinion.

comment How do I include their character bio without controlling their past?
This. When I give a DM my back-story, we hash out facts and they get veto power. Anything I don't put in they are free to use against me (in the name of interesting drama).

comment How to deal with a player who doesn't understand party roles?
Killing the PC as a first step is not only unhelpful, it will only serve to drive the guy away from the hobby. I'm getting this kid is new to gaming. TEACH him before throwing the book at him.

comment Can you be afraid if you're dead?
Well... if the Dread is ALL dead, there's nothing you can do. However, your friend is only MOSTLY dead.

comment What effect would removing the confirmation roll have on the game?
Not enough for an answer, but in my game you still have to roll to confirm. However if you fail the confirm roll, you do max (regular) damage for the hit. Players are still happy at getting something, but not as happy as a X2 crit.
