comment What are the good formats and online platforms for my game journal?
Small edits should make this a good question: you just need to narrow it down to your personal needs and not as general as it is.

comment How to begin a role-playing scenario in medias res?
@TimLymington: The last part addresses simulationist vs narativist arguments and does not directly relate to OP. Clearly, in all cases both the players and GM must be on the same page.

comment How do you reconcile conflicting Transhuman Lifepath results in Step 3?
Tool as in piece of software? I so, store your results in a list (or vector or array) and if you get to this edge case, remove the last entry from the list/vector/array.

comment How do you make loremaster characters more than just a GM mouthpiece?
Sadly, I do not have the time to do this. Most of my world is card board cut outs that only get fleshed when the players interact with it. However, if one had the time this would be a good solution.

comment How can I make puzzles a challenge for the character, rather than the player?
@edgerunner: I upvoted but the downvotes are probably due to the very D&D nature of this answer to a system agnostic question.

comment Roleplaying a multiple personality character?
Too often, in games, we see insanity portrait as an edgy fun trope instead of the real thing. You would do well to do some research and try to understand what the real disease is instead of using tropes.

Why is this tagged dnd-3.5e? Do you want only answers that are applicable to this rule set?

Are you looking for just RAW answers or would house rules be okay?

comment Can I substitute a d3 with a d6?
That's even better than my (pathetic) attempt at making it clearer. You could use some tables but the support here is rather poor.

Please, please, please, write an after action report on the game. I, for one, would be really interested in hearing how it went.

+1 for Unity. Very niffty idea.
