I have been running role playing games now for about 4 or 5 years, and my system of choice by far is Savage Worlds. I've played in and run games using a number of others, but none I have used so far clicks quite so well. I enjoy running games far more than I do playing in them, and my greatest experience so far has been a long running zombie apocalypse game that recently concluded.

I currently run several games - A Deadlands Reloaded campaign, a Hellfrost campaign, and I am just gearing up to start something using Unknown Armies, a completely new system to me.

won't it be an issue if/when it is indexed on search engines?

comment System recommendation: Dynamic, engaging, and realistic skill rolls
I'd argue that Shadowrun fails miserably with the 'no crunch' and 'elegant' criteria

comment Can two people cooperate on a check with different skills?
I don't normally down-vote, particularly when I have another answer to the same question, but in this case I disagree that they are not explicit. I just can't see how you can interpret it in that way given the wording of the rules

comment How to introduce and encourage role playing in non-roleplayers?
It's worth noting that the way answers are ordered on this site changes depending on the number of votes they get. This means that it doesn't really mean anything when you refer to 'the above answer'.

comment Armored Glass vs. Ballistic Glass
as someone more knowledgeable with the setting, does this vary much between editions? The question has been updated to be specific to 5e, so you might need to tweak this depending...

comment Can an opponent allow you to move through his square?
is this based on a specific written rule, or is it something you are interpreting as GM? Whichever it is, your answer would be stronger if this was made clearer

But their concepts of winning are fun to the questioner

does the edition matter with this question? If so, can you please tag it with the appropriate tag

Given the amount of setting specific detail in the question I agree, and have edited it accordingly

comment Taunting, intimidating, or tricking multiple opponents
Yeah, this is a tricky one. You have to be very careful, as once you start allowing these things to be used on multiple enemies then they have the potential to become extremely powerful, trumping actions that require edges. One thing you can do is rule that if a 'leader' type is intimidated, then have it affect the morale of their troops in combat

comment One of my players is too passive and uninterested
100% agree with this. Any other course of action effectively becomes you guessing wildly about what the problem is, with any attempts based on your guesses potentially making the situation more messy/complex.

comment How can a young player get into a gaming group?
That's the best edit I can come up with from the information provided. I'm still not personally convinced that it is sufficiently different to the other question though

comment How to deal with an overly-specific GM
I think this is good advice, if and only if talking to the GM doesn't work. The question gives no information about how experienced the GM is or anything like that, and making an assumption that the situation is not rescuable before an attempt is made to even broach the subject with them is made is wrong in my opinion

comment What materials/information would I need to construct a gameworld?
There is also a World-Building tag, which has 61 questions associated with it. You should have a look through those and see if their answers have any information that answers your question

comment What materials/information would I need to construct a gameworld?
Welcome to the site! Unfortunately I believe this question is far to broad to be answerable on this site. You could write an entire book on this subject. One thing you could consider in trying to narrow it down is to give more details as to the genre, system and any other requirements you know you have. I have voted to put the question on hold, and if enough others agree, this will stop people answering the question until it has been sufficiently edited.

comment What are the stand-out features of D&D 5e?
My confusion is with how people are able to give definitive answers already for 'how it excels' when most have hardly had a chance to actually run the thing yet. I would argue that it is the kind of thing you simply cannot know from reading the rules - you need to run them to see how they really work

comment When teaching D&D 5e basic to players of previous editions, which terms have new meanings that will likely lead to confusion?
VTC - this is way to broad. Looking at the only answer so far, this can and is being interpreted as asking for a list of mechanical changes relating to the use of different terms. If that's the case you may as well ask for a list of all the changes between the new edition and any older editions

comment Dresden Files RPG: Can Spells Mimic or Replace other Skills?
Just a note - it's usually worth waiting a while before accepting an answer, particularly for longer and more involved questions such as this. You will tend to find that once an answer has been accepted it will discourage others from offering additional solutions to your question, which might turn out to be better.
