comment Dispel Magic vs multiple summons
This is specifically a case where the specific (dispel magic's explicit rule) overrides the general (each monster is its own creature).

comment Good resources for creating ConLangs and ConWorlds?
For ConWorlds, you might be interested in the worldbuilding.SE proposal. It’s not accepting questions yet, but if you’re interested you should consider committing to help get it going.

comment Advice for creating/running my first city adventure session?
You tagged this as [system-agnostic], but it would be easier to answer if you could provide a genre of city you're looking at. A medieval fantasy city (D&D, Dark Age WoD) will not share a huge amount with a modernish city (Shadowrun, WoD), or a future-tech/alien city (Traveller, Deathwatch).

There’s an official Bloodmage PrC for Pathfinder as well.

comment How can I make puzzles a challenge for the character, rather than the player?
@mxyzplk - Nice edit to make this actually work as a system-agnostic question.

comment Can a 6th level character do forced march forever?
Another possible house rule is to extrapolate from the environmental rules which say the non-lethal damage can't be healed until the condition (such as overheating) is removed.

comment As a GM, how can I stop killing my games?
+1 for "write it down" in alternate forms.

comment I need help with making a were tyrannosaurus PC in Pathfinder
+1 for the Large T-rex companion suggestion. (And all the math, but I like that you gave an alternative)

comment What living apex lifeforms are there other than dragons?
Interestingly, you can extend Naga -> Water (not a great fit for snakes, but WoW did it), and Sphinx -> Earth, and have the four classic elements.

@MrJinPengyou - Specifically "standard biped". I don't know that Giants would be non-standard enough to qualify, but mountains-as-giants probably would.

comment Can a sorcerer use a scroll of a spell not known?
@PaulZ - Interesting. The system explicitly does (as per the quote in the OP), but I hadn't realized that PFS did away with that. Not that my characters use many scrolls.

comment Can a sorcerer use a scroll of a spell not known?
Since you mention bards, I just wanted to note that they have to have arcane cure spells on scrolls - they can't share with the cleric, but they can with the witch. Likewise a bard's cure scrolls can't be used by the cleric. Wands are a different story.

comment Strategies for handling age of maturity dissonance for Aasimar (or other plane-touched) born to humans?
Horses are a great example! Race horses are usually raced as 3 year olds (all three Triple Crown races, for example). So the fact that they aren't mature until 5 is very relevant here. Effectively, they have a very long teenage-hood.

comment System Recommendation: Traders/Truckers Spaceships Sci-Fi
This would have been my recommendation, but you beat me to it (and much more thoroughly). I also recommend the Mongoose version.

comment Pitfalls to avoid when using kingdom building rules for the first time?
Specifically, magic items no longer have any effect on the economy, and hex improvements do (beyond just reducing Consumption). Points #3 and #4 are still valid, but Ultimate Campaign has a optional rule system for #4 and a few suggestions for #3.

comment How do I tell how long my adventure is going to be?
That's a really nice way to break it down. It doesn't help with the player's reactions (as discussed in other answers), but for planning purposes it's a great idea.

comment Can you bring a sword to a gun fight (and win)?
Worth noting that you can go cybersam instead of adept and also be pretty amazing with swords, but without the weapon focus benefits. You can generally get a lot tougher, though.

comment Pitfalls to avoid when using kingdom building rules for the first time?
These sound more like the issues with the Kingmaker rules than with the Ultimate Campaign rules. UC smoothed out a lot of these rough edges, in favor of others. I haven't actually used the UC rules myself - my Kingmaker game bogged down around when it came out - but I remember reading them and going "Ah, that fixes this, but this other thing could be a problem." I'll see if I can spot those again tonight.
