comment Are there crafting rules for incorporating or embedding magic items into other objects?
You might want to clarify that the part of your answer that reproduces the magic item creation rules is about magic item creation rather than item creation in general. It's not clear, currently.

This answer describes the rules for crafting magic items, but the OP is asking how to craft objects that use magic items as components. -1.

comment What happens to objects, changed while transmuted using Minor Alchemy, after they revert?
I generally agree with this answer, but "mentioning no physical change at all" should probably be "mentioning no reversion in shape at all." Reverting to original substance sounds like a physical change to me.

comment Where is the origin of the “Duck in a Dungeon” trope?
@mxyzplk Oddly enough, there's a killer rabbit munchkin card as well. Sometimes, anyway. Most of the time it's just an ordinary rabbit.

comment Monster traits classification and implementation in a database
+1 for pointing out that the system is not consistent. The OP faces a problem similar to that faced by ecologists, psychologists, and other experts on complex natural phenomena: Not everything in their chosen field falls into clear-cut categories, so any effort that depends on those categories existing first needs to define what they are.

comment Question on game journal publication content design
This is a request for opinions. It's a great question, but the Stack Exchange format is really, really bad at requests for opinion, so this question is going to be closed. Is there any way you can make the question more objectively answerable, perhaps by clarifying exactly what you want this journal to achieve, or by describing the limits to what you're willing to do?

comment What happens if you make an impossible wish
@MasonWheeler An "electronic" game. In my dialect, the term "video game" connotes console games only, while "e-game" includes both console and PC games. As in this case my goal was to indicate that SMRPG is a non-tabletop game rather than to indicate it's a non-PC game, "e-game" was the term that sprang most readily to mind... but now that you mention it, "video game" would also have worked.

I like to describe gnosis as "the extent to which the world really does revolve around you."

comment What happens if you make an impossible wish
@KorvinStarmast Heh, I could run an entire campaign based on the of the mechanism of wish-granting being broken and in need of fixing. Come to think of it that was the plot of the Super Mario RPG e-game.

comment Is UPP an in-game or just a metagame construct?
As I remember it, Classic Traveller includes a number of blank forms with spaces for UPPs, and they're worded and titled in ways that suggest they have an in-universe existence. Remember that you can declare anything IYTU, though.

comment Does Animate Dead just create human skeletons/zombies, or can it raise whole creatures as undead?
+1 for it being strange to interpret the spell that way. "Make dead things move" is literally in the name.

comment Using the Well of Many Worlds
Historical note: In 3.5rd edition D&D, there was a standard random plane table that a number of magical items and effects used. This table represented the proprietary "Great Wheel" cosmology, however, and so was not reproduced in Pathfinder. I'm not sure why there's no replacement table, but presumably the Paizo devs decided not to make assumptions about which cosmology their players would be playing in.

comment How to transform a bunch of strangers into a friendly group?
Your footnote 2 is right about many players disliking the mechanics of character creation - but bear in mind that many groups benefit from collaborative character creation because it allows them to ensure that the characters' personalities all 'fit' together. There are ways to ensure good party cohesion without making character creation collaborative - Perhaps you could add one or two to your answer?
