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 Fate games could go wrong and how to prevent that
Much better but I think you have more than one question here... ^_~

comment How do I run a dungeon crawl, communicating how various rooms/passages look?
@Phil: Done. Thank you for your feedback. Clearly, I did not intent to offend you, or anyone else. My apologies if it read that way.

comment GM Help - Arguing
Classic answer: Raise it as a problem with your players, find out why this is happening, and try to resolve it to everybody's satisfaction. If you reach an agreement, all is good else find other players. Next?

comment What else is in the Traveller galaxy?
Welcome to the site. This is a nice question that I think does not falls foul of the "asking for a list" as you are asking for source material that defines it. +1 to get you going.

comment How can I contribute to the game and have fun after my PC dies?
+1 for a very interesting question. Sadly, most of my answers would be system agnostic and thus off topic. Dammit! ^_~

comment Modeling cutaway prep scenes in Fate
+1. Unless your cutaway scene is fairly close to the present (thus predictable) or you aply some serious railroading, you might have trouble getting there in the first place. Note that I like the idea of doing it, just that every time I tried it did not quiet work.

comment How can I run games in Shadowrun, without going overboard?
What do you mean by mundane? Do you mean the PCs are low-level powered or do you mean vanilla game play? As a side note, dragons and Horrors are a good source of plots.

comment Eclipse Phase and… the soul?
Not really because as soon as the two forks diverge, you get modifications in the ghost due to said divergence that makes them different. Thus ghost forking.

comment Eclipse Phase and… the soul?
@GMJoe: No, I do not. Alpha forks are just ghost forks.

comment Tools for tracking NPC/PC relationships and attitudes
True, there are GUIs. However, last time I used them I needed to wash my hands over how ugly they were... ^_~

comment Encouraging players to play games they normally wouldn't?
I do think that system matters, it's just that my go to system is systemless... If that makes sense! ^_~

comment Encouraging players to play games they normally wouldn't?
Your last two sentences are a good pitch. I would play in that game and I think I even have a character idea... ^_~

comment How should I properly lay out the expectations of my players for the campaign, and how do I support these expectations?
+1, if only for the last sentence. Something I should have mentioned but did not. Thank you.

comment Conjuring Armor via Thaumaturgy and Craft item in Dresden Files Rpg
Welcome to the site! I think that you have two good questions in potentia here. I would split the latter one off to a different post. In addition, you should expend the questions a little: are you looking for RAW or for something more free form?

comment How do I deal with these crazy PCs?
Tell them in an assertive way what you want the game to be and if they do not agree to it, find better friends to role play with. To be honest, the "sexual harassment" aspect worries me...
