comment When creating a scroll, how should the scroll's cost be handled in-game?
True story: adding the last line of this answer to any answer makes it correct.

comment What stats should I give a shield made out of the door of an armoured Humvee?
What I love about RPGs is that scavaging humvees to make shields to protect against zombies actually does fall under "reasonably realistic" :-)

comment Any problems playing a dragon PC in a 1st level party?
Is your character, based on the Draconomicon, going to be a Dracomedian? Ha ha, ha, ha, ba dum crash!

comment Why the bad guys don't just teleport somewhere drop a bomb and teleport back?
Every populated area I was Sheriff of would have a dimensional lock. And I'm sure there'd be some hippy wizards outside the gates going "Help! We're being oppressed! Free teleporting!" but most people wouldn't mind the minor inconvenience to their travel plans when you consider the great benefit of security, right? I mean, right? It's not like we're allowing dimensional teleportation but performing telepathic scans on all incoming and outgoing dimensional travelers.

comment Running a game with intentionally “over-powered” PCs
PCs are only overpowered in relation to something else. There's no difference between all 18s and all 8s if you make the monsters, skill checks, etc the appropriate difficulty. Seems like it would be easier to just start them at level 20 or what have you and go from there!

comment Problems with a party of only Spellcasters?
If someone walks in with a sphere of magic dampening or something else that inhibits your magic, your party is toast.

comment Why shouldn't I use fully statted PC characters as NPC antagonists in D&D 4E?
BESW's extension of this answer is a significantly bigger concern, even though the concept is still the same. If my players one shot their opponent, they might feel really psyched about it (unless it happened every time, then it's boring). If THEY get ambushed, and say the cleric gets taken out in the 0th round of combat (i45.tinypic.com/v30d2w.png) they will not be very happy for long...

comment What is thaumaturgy?
It appears John Dee is not far from the truth. Everything from computers, cellphones, planes, rockets, maybe even lighters, certainly nuclear power, and all kinds of things would be treated as magic. Probably much of our medicine would be considered witchcraft in his day, too.

I suggest saying "Boom!" when one occurs. I can't imagine that not making it more interesting.

comment Homemade setting with WFRP 3e
What if you allow this to be a third (fourth? fifth?) age, and allow the reduction of magic to be part of the story? Maybe something happened that caused the world to fall into a 'low magic' kind of world.
