Is this a rant disguised as a question?

Your title and your question are different if the people are willing participants.

CG might shoot at LG when the opportunity arises. You know. The C part.

comment Why is interrogating done with roll+CHA instead of +STR?
"Is it hot in here, or is it just battleaxe? Anyway, where is the bandit hideout?"

comment What happens when an Uruk gets an elvish sword?
Why does it have to be the hate of the maker? Sure that's one interpretation, but doesn't mean that has to be our interpretation. Like I say, handwaving for the sake of good story is totally fine. =)

comment What happens when an Uruk gets an elvish sword?
I think the beauty of this answer is you don't need a precedent, though. You can simply say "this is how it is - the sword gets its light from the hate". The only counter argument is... aren't Uruk full of hate anyway, so it would still glow? But I digress a tad. I love the idea of handwaving on this, as long as you're consistent with it.

Wouldn't an orc get great pleasure from an elf being slain with an elven blade?

comment What happens after level 30?
@Beska Think of it like this: imagine an RPG where you were rising the corporate ladder. (What a boring RPG... anyway...) You might get to be a team lead, then a manager, director, senior director, VP, SVP, EVP, President of a large business unit, and eventually CEO. Your career isn't over, but following the path of your rise is.

comment How to handle wealthy player characters as a GM?
Your characters are heroes - they are better than almost everyone they meet. Why shouldn't they be wealthier too?

comment When smashing an object, do you subtract the hardness every time?
It would seem this isn't a perfect parallel to the real world. There are a lot of items that will smash more from later blows than early blows (for example, weakening the outer shell early, and large amounts of damage once the insides are exposed). If that detail were necessary, I would consider using two separate objects - one on the outside with a high toughness that yields a new object with lower toughness once it is destroyed.

Why do I have a feeling most deities would not fail a Will save? =)

comment How do I foster enjoyment in the type of make-believe required in RPGs in a child who isn't old enough to play RPGs?
Draw on their favorite TV shows, but not on their favorite TV. That will end badly.

comment When designing a campaign plot, how can I test it for complexity?
All we need is RPGUnit where we can test our individual encounters with unit tests before moving on to integration tests between the encounters... =)

comment How do you play D&D when we don't have dice to play with?
That and the pages-with-numbers solution is what Tolkien Quest adventure books uses.

comment How do you play D&D when we don't have dice to play with?
I see on Amazon's website that shipping to "Asia and Pacific Islands" is $4.99 per pound for toys. A "Chessex Pound of Dice" is $20 or so and you'd get a whole heck of a lot of dice. Otherwise, a set of 7 dice go as low as $1.99. So for 7 bucks you can get a set of dice online, or for $20, you could get enough dice to last you for the rest of your life. The pound of dice is usually around 100 pieces, so you could make them into little sets of 7 and sell them for $2 or $3 to make your money back and still have plenty of dice leftover, plus you'd help kickstart a gaming community!
