comment How many people does it take to steal a Star Destroyer?
An extra factor is that there is no such thing as "an empty Star Destroyer". There are no unmanned reactors of that size even if "turned off" - such ships would be [partially] manned 24/7 before launch and after mothballing, and it would become empty only after decommissioning that would involve removal of core reactor and other key items.

comment System recommendation: Dynamic, engaging, and realistic skill rolls
@doctorworm - FUDGE and derived systems work exactly like the non-universal scales described in this post.

comment Why is burying yourself not such a great plan?
@Mark the consequences of that would be death, since once the excrement goes into the straw, he'd suffocate faster than he can be dug out.

comment How does Dominated work? Can it really make me attack allies or walk off a cliff?
I'd say that the examples you give are not particular to the Dominated effect as such - the question is about the expected threat/viciousness of the game. Would a random goblin attack a PC that has 1 HP left? Would enemies that can push you attempt to push you off a cliff for a save-or-die situation? If yes, then the dominating caster would do the same, if no, then they wouldn't - and not because limitations of the spell or rules, but for narrative reasons.

Attacking whomever the caster wants to hurt is the obvious usage of those spells - a Dominated character might do many things, but an at-will attack towards the most vulnerable party member is pretty much the default thing to expect every round while the domination lasts.

comment Dealing with players who try to run from everything?
Switch the genre to something like Call of Cthulhu (or Paranoia?) where irrational fear and the reaction to run away would be the appropriate thing to do in most encounters.

comment Are the Clerics of Pelor supposed to be celibate?
Why should clerics be celibate? In almost all real world religions, both current and historical, priests aren't required to be celibate. Priest celibacy is a tradition of a single major religion - the Roman Catholic Church, but doesn't apply to about half of christians nor to the other major religions; so it's an exception rather than a rule.
