comment How do I get the PCs to visit scary places at night?
I like your suggestions, but it feels difficult to use some of them more than once. Number 1 and 4 seem likely to turn into running jokes or constant frustrations that the characters always miscalculate their travel time by 12 hours and constantly fall asleep on guard duty.

comment How can GMs evoke the tone of danger in an RPG?
I agree that music can itself be the solution. Try turning off the sound and then watching an action movie, or even the Star Wars opening crawl. George Lucas didn't hire John Williams for nothing.

comment How do I keep NPCs from just sounding the alarm?
This is a fun idea and it seems especially suitable for games inspired by action movies, where the guards always seem to check things out by themselves instead of sounding the big alarm right away.

comment Campaign is on hiatus. How do I keep it on life support?
These are good suggestions for the actual restart of the campaign, but I feel the question is more about the time in-between when there is no gaming at all. Keeping the campaign alive during this time is the real challenge. Do you have any suggestions on how to handle that?

comment How to tastefully convey racism in RPGs?
Before including racism in your game, make sure that all of your players are okay with it. If they aren't, don't include it. Every D&D player expects non-graphic violence as a part of the game, but other themes will go beyond what some players consider an enjoyable evening of play. These include racism but also sex, torture, and drug abuse. Err on the side of caution, because some players will feel uncomfortable without showing it. The best way to find out what suits your group is to discuss it in private with each player beforehand.

comment How can I add sound to our sessions?
Now that the cat is out of the evilcandybag, I've uploaded the application to Github for everybody's benefit. I've also written a separate answer to this question incorporating it. github.com/JakobKallin/RPG-Ambience
