@KyleWilley Ah, OK. I wonder who did downvote this, and why?

comment How to roleplay a PC torture scene
@KyleWilley The fact that this answer draws on LARPing experience does not make it a bad or inappropriate answer; It gives much the same advice as Pulsehead's upvoted answer. It's not as detailed, I admit, but it does answer the question as written.

comment Are human characters needed in a roleplay system?
@TimothyAWiseman It depends on the players. Some players love this kind of thing, others hate homework of any kind.

comment How are new Egos produced & taught in Eclipse Phase?
This is an excellent response, but you sort of dance around the point that it's probably a little different in every habitat, depending on the local culture and memes.

comment Alternate class system for MtG inspired setting
Note that the Planewalker version of the PCS is designed for 3.0rd and 3.5rd editions of D&D, not Pathfinder. Not that that's a huge issue, of course, but it's something to keep in mind.

comment Alternate class system for MtG inspired setting
You might want to look at the Planescape campaign setting's factions. It's not too dissimilar to what you've got planned, and it's always worth looking at how what you're doing has been done before.

comment How can I maximise my wizard's armour without magic items/spells?
Rather than trying to give your character a defense that doesn't require time to set up when startled awake at night, perhaps look into methods of gaining extra time in which to set up? The Alarm spell, for instance, can be quite useful, especially if camping in a dungeon.

comment Why would a non-evil Druid use the Awaken spell?
Awaken is no more unnatural than any other Druid spell. Also, evil druids aren't necessarily in favour of the unnatural: They still have to revere nature, after all. You may want to reconsider your assumptions.

comment How to get my Paranoia players to stop cooperating and start killing each other?
What makes it paranoia is that everyone really is out to get you. Make betraying each other the only realistic way to survive a mission. They'll catch on pretty quick.

comment Is discharging a spell a purely mental action?
Isn't there a line that specifies that controlling or redirecting a spell uses the same kinds of components as casting it in the first place?
