comment How do you deal with a player that's determined to play the game in a way that is detrimental to the advancement of the story?
+1 for (2) but I get the impression that the player is more disruptive than going with his own story ideas... Maybe experience coloured this.

comment What collaborative mapping software would meet my needs?
+1 I am interested in that as well as I would like to find a better tool than GIMP which while good is not ideal.

@corvec: I do not. I suspect you get a mess unless you are careful. It will detect that the underlying image has changed but you may only have the choice between trashing what you have done or trashing the changes that have been pushed. Do have a look at how git/darcs deal with binary files as that may help. Personally, I would have multiple maps -- one per topic -- where one GM is responsible for one topic. Topics could be political, fauna, flora, etc...

comment How do I role-play as a dragon?
@corvec: I still think the question is bad but apparently few other people do. Meh. Not to worry and I hope you did get something useful out of it.
