comment How to create a dungeon based on a realistic tomb, but still enjoyable to explore?
The Paris catacombs were never designed as a necropolis. They were stones mines that were re-purposed as dumping ground for overflowing graveyards.

comment How can I Help a New GM Get Started?
I, for one, think this is a good answer because it does answer the How can I Help a New GM Get Started? which is the main topic in my not so humble opinion. It addresses why a different system would be better which is a valid criticism of Channgling. Although, a little more why Channgling is a bad idea could potentially improve the answer.

comment How do I deal with players that do not put much effort on character background?
While I voted to put on hold, please do edit and refocus the question and maybe split it into several because there's a lot of potential there!!!

comment How can I Help a New GM Get Started?
Are you interested in a system specific answer (thus the tag) or would you open to a system agnostic answer? The fact that you used the tag seems to point to the former but that means I would not be able to answer it... :(

I am going against the flow here and think that the question could be answered adequately. My answer is very generic but I could see a better answer by a scholar of ASoIaF.

comment Awarding Experience in RoleMaster
+1 for references on what I seemed to remember. And yeah, I did the same thing as yourself: XP for story goals. Another way to deal with this is to have the player do their own book keeping but who has time?

How much can you learn about a person's digital footprint now a days? How trustworthy is it? Can you think of ways to use misinformation on would be captors?...
