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.

comment How can I make Corporate SINner worth the karma as a GM?
I guess my question would be whether spending Edge in that way is within the RAW. If not then you've effectively overruled one of the significant and important drawbacks of having fake SINs

comment How can I plan, prepare, and enforce an episodic structure?
Do you have a particular system in mind? I have a feeling answers could vary hugely, particularly given that an 'appropriate length' depends a lot on the complexity of what you are playing.

comment Way to prevent teleportation
I think some people do stuff like that using bounties. Effectively, if you think an answer deserves more, add a bounty to the question and reward it to the answer you like

comment How can player characters restore a mostly-burned note?
I'm not familiar with the system, but surely this would not work if they literally only had a very small number words the original note was made up of?

comment What are the best computer generators for historical timelines?
Hi and welcome to the site. Unfortunately in its current format this question is not a good fit for this site as it is too broad. In order for it to be improved you will need to provide a definition of what a 'good generator' is from your point of view.

comment Help Needed With Probability Math for 2d10
I don't understand why this question is being voted to close when there are many similar questions under the Probability tag that are just fine, eg rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/14690/… rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/34173/…

comment Off Hand optimization
Note that it is almost always better to make your question as specific as possible to your situation (as you have done here) rather than make it artificially broad so that it is 'more useful'. All that tends to do is invite more wishy washy and vague answers that aren't as good at solving the actual problem you have.

comment How to get players to survive this particular battle?
@Dakeyras you might want to make that a proper answer - it's short and sweet, but I think it is an excellent suggestion

Would it be possible to give a very brief summary of how those two answer his specific question? Just providing links isn't great as they might go dead at some point.

comment What books should I purchase to start D&D4 with? (2014 after some became out of print)
As @BrianBallsun-Stanton says, this question - rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/1173/… is very similar to yours, and if it is only the fact that the information in its answers is out of date, the way to handle it on this site is to offer a bounty on the old question with a reason explaining why. Unfortunately, you require a certain amount of rep to be able to do that, so you won't be able to just yet.

comment Attributes - how to determine them in a setting-specific manner?
Even with the edit this question is still massively broad. The attributes you pick depend on a huge number of variables, only one of which is the setting you are designing for. For example, do you want a narrative, abstract, or crunchy setting? Without a significant rethink of the way the question is structured, I am voting to close, and I agree with @Zachiel that even then you are likely to get much better responses from a discussion forum that the format of this site

comment Roll20 reminded me of a similar program; help me identify it?
I don't agree with the last part of the edit. Roll20 does not have real time input in that sense, and the changed sentence makes it sound like it does

comment Roll20 reminded me of a similar program; help me identify it?
So basically you're asking for a list of Virtual Tabletops? For me, you really need to define what 'your needs' are, otherwise it'll get closed as too broad and listy

comment How do you optimize in 1st Edition AD&D?
New user first answer? Although I think I can guess, it would be nice if down voters at least gave some indication as to their reasons...

comment Spending Hold whilst shapeshifting as a Druid
Is it an issue that crunch on stuff seems to be a subset of hack and slash? Should I be being more creative with my moves so that doesn't happen? How do I know which of the two moves triggers in this instance, as it could theoretically be either

So would enemies moving at all count as a soft move then?

comment Damaging transmuted state
I would be very surprised if someone took on the task of answering every single thing you have going on in this question. Even with the sub-questions that allow a single one word answer, that is a hell of a lot of work to do.

comment Is rolled death during character creation ever OK?
Hi, I'm afraid this question is almost certainly going to get closed due to it being far too broad and/or primarily opinion based.

comment What online chat or chat-like resource will work for my closed game?
Yeah, there's the same badge here - I think it is supposed to encourage this kind of thing, not put you off of doing it
