comment How can I create an introductory D&D encounter intended for teaching the rules?
I'm talking about time to play, not time to design. I've spent a good hour designing it already by posting this question. ;)

comment How can I create an introductory D&D encounter intended for teaching the rules?
Sounds like a good idea, but I was only planning to spend an hour or two on it, and it seems like a five-room dungeon could take a bit more than that. Still, might come in handy!

comment How can I recreate an “ambush in the night” scenario?
That would probably work, but it seems to go against the D&D rules (for example, the ability to remain hidden after missing an attack is exclusive to just a few monsters). I'm primarily looking for solutions within the ruleset.

comment What was TSR's Intruder comic/module about?
Also, if you decide to do your own search for "intruder" at Atomic Avenue, you should know that the first title listed is NSFW. ;)

comment Engel metaplot summary?
When I first heard of this German game Engel, I thought it was a philosophical RPG based on the works of Friedrich Engels. Maybe it reveals some prejudices I had about the German gaming industry. ;)

comment How to write in-character introduction to new players for a new game background
Your idea of giving each player a description only of his homeland and having him describe it to his friends is brilliant! I'm going to use that in my next game.

Thanks for the interview link! Could you also summarize the mechanical differences? For instance: Which game is more rules-heavy? What are the main differences in character stats between the two systems?
