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 Are PCs supposed to start a game knowing each other, and if not, how should they meet?
great answer. The only thing I'd add is a comment that for a brand new GM, having a group of total strangers can be difficult to make work, and it makes the first few sessions much harder work for you.

comment How to get others interested in restarting a very old campaign?
I think this question is perfectly valid. As the only answer so far has demonstrated, there are approaches you can take as a GM that could reinvigorate interest.

comment How can I be considered bloodied while above half HP?
that's the way I interpret it

comment How to handle a group of inexperienced players who split their party more often than I can handle
I've made some edits to your question that hopefully improve the flow and grammar a little without changing the meaning of what you are asking. If you don't like it though, you are free to revert back to your original.

comment How to handle Mass creature numbers
This is all interesting stuff, but it doesn't seem to actually answer the question. The issue as I understand it isn't dealing with a situation where players are in over their heads, but specifically how to handle the initiative and keeping people interested when there are lots of individual enemies

comment Advice for low-level enemy NPCs
Hey, the frustration is understandable, particularly for new users. It can be hard to get your head around the fact that the site is specifically designed to only work with certain types of question and for those that don't fit the format, other types of site such as forums are usually a better place to go.

comment Advice for low-level enemy NPCs
This needs input from the questioner before it can be reopened. At present it is completely opinion based, and although we could edit it ourselves, we'd have no idea as to whether or not the new version of the question was asking what the questioner actually wanted

comment What is the prone state for a winged flying create in D&D supposed to correspond to?
In which case I'm personally voting to close as too broad. Asking for something that clarifies RAI across all editions is just too much to ask from one question imo

In which case, what makes a correct answer?

comment What is the prone state for a winged flying create in D&D supposed to correspond to?
Given the breadth of rule sets across all the editions, is it actually possible to answer this for them all?

comment How to make extremely lethal stories in Fate
-1 Although this is a great answer in one respect, it completely ignores all of the issues that make Fate as a system with its associated mechanics difficult to run this type of game in. As this is the main/sole focus of the question I feel that this answer does not do a good enough of addressing this at all

comment Which are the best sourcebooks for creating D&D 4e Forgotten Realms?
Unfortunately this question is entirely opinion based and asking for lists of answers. This site handles these types of question really, really badly and because of this they are not within the scope of what can be asked. Voting to close as primarily opinion based.

comment How to deal with a player in a large forum game who constantly fights in-game and OOC?
Yep, by this point there really are no other options when you have a player this far out of control

comment What are the advantages of switching to Sorcerer at level 2 versus staying with Bloodrager?
I guess what I was asking was how you are defining 'better'

What do you mean by 'better arcane caster'?

comment Does The Ranger's Feral Senses Accomplish Anything, RAW?
Definitely not, no. That would count as an unacceptably major edit that would change the intent of the original question. Given the differences, I would actually argue that this is NOT a duplicate, but that you should probably include a reference to the old question in yours

Yeah, the system you are using is really important to be able to answer this

comment Dual wield and sneak attack with rogue?
Just a warning - referring to other questions as things like 'above' is dangerous, as the order answers display on the screen can vary.

comment Looking for an RPG portraying dogfights and fighter pilots
My personal experience with Fate suggests that it would be difficult to get the level of complexity and realism the question seems to be asking for, or the detail required to represent the accurate position of airplanes on the map rather than the zones that Fate Core uses. Do you have any experience of how this would work?

comment Do I have to roll multiple shooting dice individually?
@TeXter I've added a reference that clarifies that particular part. Is that any better?
