comment What is the diet of a silver wyrmling?
@SevenSidedDie I thought that in those circumstances, it was better not to answer as the question is unanswerable with its given criteria?

comment What is the diet of a silver wyrmling?
Do you only want answers that draw on official sources? If not, this might get closed as opinion based

comment Can a Ranger refuse to hate their favored enemy?
Absolutely. At my table, a player telling another how to play their character is a massive no-no, and something I stamp down on hard.

comment What is the Oberoni Fallacy?
the word sic makes it clear that it is a spelling mistake that has deliberately been left in because it was in the original text, so you definitely don't need to change it.

comment Is there an edge to make my weapons magic?
Smite definitely makes a weapon magical. It's one of the most useful aspects of the power in Deadlands.

comment How should one handle tournament jousting?
@SevenSidedDie Isn't that just because they aren't sticking to the rule that homebrew answers must show they've been used?

comment Can an Arcane Trickster Rogue learn all of the wizard spells from the low levels it has slots for?
Completely agree with SSD here. The added parts reduce the clarity of the question, aren't part of the question shouldn't be there imo

comment Looking for a system that effectively models endurance and fatigue
In which case, this is likely to get downvoted heavily. Game-rec questions require answers to show actual evidence of successful use of whatever is suggested

comment My PCs have a plan that will get them all killed; how and why should I save them?
I'd also ask whether they were given the opportunity to detect the presence of the spy. If they were and failed then fair enough. However, if not then that is incredibly unfair on the players, as it gave them no chance of altering the situation

comment How should pets/summons/familiars be handled in Fate?
Even without an expert knowledge of Fate I can see this question has issues. You do not define what you mean by appropriate here, which is really important. It would help to have more context about the specific situation you are using familiars in, as it will impact significantly on which solution might be best. Do you have a particular setting? Are all characters having familiars, or is it unique to one of them? etc etc. Basically, what are you trying to actually achieve by introducing familiars into your game?

comment Game Recommendation for Hunger Games rip-off
@Grizzled Hi, I just wanted to explain why I'm still sticking with my -1 vote. Our standards for game-recommendation questions are really high, and require answers to show how they meet each of the individual criteria specified in the question. At the moment, your answer still doesn't really do this. Would it be possible for you to address each of the 4 criteria listed and explain how Rolemaster addresses them?
