I'm a software developer who has been roleplaying regularly for the past 6 years with the Sheffield University Roleplaying Society (NoDDSoc), of which I was president for 2 years. I play everything I can get my hands on really, but have a heavy leaning towards character-driven indie stuff. Particular favourites as In a Wicked Age, Dogs in the Vineard, Apocalypse Worlds, Don't Rest Your Head, The Mountain Witch, Dread, and probably a whole load else that I can't remember off the top of my head.

comment How can I GM in Faerie with True Fae PCs?
I acquired a copy of this book and it definitely has some useful ideas. I'll try to come back and edit some kind of summary into this answer once I've had a bit more time to read.

comment How do you run a political campaign?
My, that's a thorough answer. I had considering fleshing out the earlier parts of the campaign and leaving the political stuff as just being implied post-campaign so I didn't have to deal with it, but now I'm actually quite excited about the idea.

comment How do you encourage the use of lesser trained skills in a skill challenge?
Comment rather than answer for now, because I'm not familiar with 4th Ed skill checks, so this may be completely wrong, but in general roleplaying terms I would say that the GM just needs to be stricter about making the players use skills that are actually appropriate. That's not to say you can't spend a turn using Perception to alter to difficulty, but ultimately climbing a wall should require some kind of athletics/climb check.
