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.

comment Does there exist a Detect Deity Spell
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!

comment How do we tell our new GM that we don't like some elements of his campaign?
Note, there's a difference between "I don't like" and "the players don't like". It reminds me of a manager I once had who couldn't believe how many people out there were so hard to work with. Hint: it wasn't all those people who were hard to work with!!

comment Exactly, what is an encounter?
I've always considered to be a little boolean flag that sits on your person. Like in World of Warcraft where you can't get on your mount when you're "in combat".

comment Are class and feat based proficiencies cumulative?
Would you consider that a binary state? Or rather a Boolean state?

comment What is the most damage-oriented barbarian build (without any regard to defences)?
@Joshua As a 50k+ rep user and SE moderator, I'm very well versed in how comments should and should not be used. My comment is on the eligibility of his build and whether or not it (in a true RP sense) would be capable of dealing the kinds of damage he wants to.

comment What is the most damage-oriented barbarian build (without any regard to defences)?
I've always found it odd that 1) increasing strength always comes at the expense of intelligence and 2) anyone with that low of intelligence is capable of doing any reasonable amount of damage. I've always just assumed someone could just step out of the way of someone running at them with an int of 3 and they would just keep running until they hit something, probably the wall.

In America there is football EVERYWHERE, but most people don't play it.

comment How can I effectively drop clues of corruption in my campaigns?
Wow... I had considered asking almost this exact question before, as I'm designing a (mobile/web) game. The roadmap on this is exactly what I was looking for, as the world is incredible corrupt.

comment Does a Barbarian's Rage End When He Becomes Unconscious?
It also comes from you just hit a barbarian in the head. If that doesn't cause him to rage at you when he wakes up, I don't know what will!!

comment Does flight warrant Move Silently checks?
@dlras2 I absolutely agree. I was speaking from a roleplaying point of view, not a rollplaying point of view =)
