Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum. Quid enim est aetas hominis, nisi ea memoria rerum veterum cum superiorum aetate contexitur? -- Cicero, Marcus Tullius (106-43BC)

comment How can I politely ask a player to leave my game?
+1, if only for quoting Machiavelli. If anyone has not read The Prince, do so now.

comment Bad group, how to leave?
-1. Email is generally a terrible way to communicate as you are missing all the body language and intonation cues. Not that I really object to the email/impersonal part not anything else you say which is a good answer.

comment How to tell your players about the setting without make them read?
+1 That said, it sounds like really what it is, is that your players don't want to read. If you've got like 5 or less pages of setting and they don't want to read it, maybe they're not really interested in playing this particular game.

comment Are there any established “best practices” for teams of GMs creating campaign content?
It maybe a good idea to ask this (or a slightly modified question) on writer as well. You might get better answers as to collaborative fiction.

comment How does a dragon accumulate a hoard?
This is a meaningless question unless you have a setting in mind. If you have no setting in mind, then the only right answer is anyway the writer wants it to happen.

comment What RPGs that don't have randomization mechanisms exist?
I run systemless games that fit the randomness aspect but there is no system as such (as the name implies) so I am unsure if this would fit or not...

comment How do I implement freeform magic on a system?
This is indeed what I was referring to as cost: something arbitrary that the GM and/or other player(s) can inflict on the magic user. "Reality" in M:TA is utterly broken and most if not all of Lila was misunderstood.
