comment Would I change my characteristics on my character sheet after picking a home world in Rogue Trader?
I don't have my rulebook with me, but off the top of my head, you'd change the stats. After all, your homeworld is not going to change over the course of the campaign..

comment Techniques for making undead scary again
Speaking on the whole unknown thing, it's possible to keep players in the dark about what a monster is for a surprisingly long time even when it's right in front of them - and a lot of undead look fairly similar to each other.

comment How does the Wizard spellbook work?
Also note that the highest level of spell a character can cast is very rarely equal to the character's level.

comment Can you cast Invisibility on a large box and hide inside?
This question could have dramatic implications for the utility of invisible siege towers and other vehicles.

comment Monster suggestion for character backstory (AD&D 2e)
Sending someone to another plane can be an offensive move, if the plane is hostile enough. Most of the Inner planes are fatal to humans and demihumans who lack magical protections - and there's plenty of outer planes that can put a basher in the dead-book. Given that the basher in question survived, though, I guess that's not relevant.

comment Deck of Many Things vs. Forced Dream
@SevenSidedDie I suspect it's poorly written because the intent is for the power user to be able to do the round over again without extending the ability to "do-over" the turn to other characters nearby, in which case this is actually an interesting take on the idea of going back in time to make a small change - but that's just my guesswork.

comment Party Size and Roles for Rogue Trader
Keep in mind, the "friendly NPCs" you create don't necessarily have to be present and acting all the time like player characters do. When not traversing the immaterium, the Navigator can stay ensconsed in his tower; the Senchnal can just hand reports to the Lord-Captain's valet; the arch-millitant can be busy training up the new recruits most of the time; The tech-priest may never leave the engine room. Remember that filling a role in the crew does not necessarily mean adding a member to the rogue trader's personal companions.

+1 for pointing out that personal power is not necessarily translatable to political power.

comment How Does Inappropriately Sized Spiked Armor Work?
That assumes that the only individuals who could 'spread the word' are the warden archons, themselves - and, given that they're local rulers, there's a very high chance they'll be near to, or in frequent and regular communication with, their vassals and underlings. Sure, the PCs might be able to take out a Warden Archon, but there only has to be one lantern archon or deva passing by to see them fall and spread the word. That said, it's your campaign, so YMMV.
