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.

@Nagora better?

comment Is it possible to aim or do called shots when fanning?
@Sven the forum answer I quote is by Clint Black. He is the official Pinnacle Games source for all rules questions and clarifications on Savage Worlds and their other products. When he posts an answer on the 'Official Answers on How the Rules In Other Pinnacle Products Work' or 'Official Answers on How the Rules In Other Pinnacle Products Work' sub-forums, they ARE official rulings

@Nagora I think you are misunderstanding what I mean. When something rubbish happens to the PCs, I am saying that it is important that they are given the chance to do something about it. They do indeed need to take the initiative, I agree, but they have to be given the chance to do so.

comment How does the Diviner's Portent ability interact with Advantage and Disadvantage?
The question is specifically tagged rules as written, which means answers MUST refer to official rules in order to qualify

comment Problems with Party Formation: “You're the DM, you can figure it out.”
+100 if I could. The players trying to offload all of the responsibility for crow baring some sort of semi-logical reason for their mish mash of a group of characters to be together is unacceptable in my opinion, and I would never allow it at my table as a GM.

comment Advice on converting a D&D adventure to Savage Worlds Fantasy
rather than adding that link as part of the question, wouldn't it be cleaner and more in working with the way the site works to answer your own question using information from the link?

how are you defining 'compatibility'?

comment Is there a resource of complementary monsters?
It could also depend on whether you're working with a published world or not and which version of DnD you are using

comment Are there any perk based RPG systems (e.g. Fallout III, Skyrim, etc)?
Indeed, there's a massive variety of systems that use something similar, and in order to meet the requirements for a question for this site, I'm afraid you're going to have to narrow things down significantly in terms of what you are looking for

Gah, I'm pretty certain this is a duplicate but can't find the question I'm thinking of...will keep looking

comment How to find the line between an investigation and railroading
It's probably also mentioning the idea of 'floating clues' - i.e. information you want the PCs to get but where you have left flexibility in how they get it

comment How should I award XP for traps?
the problem is that you aren't answering the question. It's tagged 5e, and is asking for specific guidelines for that edition. Your answer doesn't even attempt to clarify whether such guidance exists before suggesting falling back to 1e, and to be honest there are so many differences between the two editions that you might as well be drawing from a different system altogether

comment What success rate design is the most “fun”?
without references to actual research this is still effectively just your personal opinion. as the question explicitly states researched answers are required, this answer doesn't meet its requirements

comment How should a DM handle Vorpal + Surge of Fortune?
Welcome to the site. Unfortunately there are some issues with your answer. Surge of Fortune does exist, and by ignoring it in your answer you are not fully answering the question as stated.

comment What are the pitfalls of a world- and genre-hopping Savage Worlds campaign?
Hey and welcome to the site. I've edited your post to remove one of the questions as it was far too broad an opinion based for this site, and would have gotten the whole question put on hold pretty quickly. The question I've left is a good one as you've specified the system and campaign type you are playing with, which makes it very answerable.

comment What is useful to delegate to Assistant DMs, and how many is it useful to have?
@Gus that sounds like an answer to me - comments will get deleted
