Added the better supplement that I totally forgot to include in the original answer.

comment What is the feasability of having substitute players?
Also, having an inconsistent audience makes it harder to run games with plots that span multiple sessions, since players will frequently need to be caught up on things they missed and will probably never have a perfect understanding of what happened even when they are.

comment A player was bucking my style and I lost my temper. What can I do from here?
@JonathanHayward That should be a comment on the answers, or part of another answer in its own right. Comments are to suggest clarification and improvement, not to chat.

revised Adventurer's salary
Minor corrections, mostly to spelling and grammar. Nothing fancy.

comment Are there any D&D rules for spells addressing past lives and the effects of reincarnation?
@Lexible That clarifies things nicely.

comment Will there be a public beta for the Witcher RPG?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because "We don't want the information on our site to become obsolete, and so we try not to ask questions whose answers may change with time."

comment How to polymorph one object into another, specifically a pumpkin into a carriage?
For best results, cast creation in the middle of the night. This ensures that the spell will last until the next midnight, when it's unlikely to be in use.

comment What happens if you don't recast Animate Dead within 24 hours
Technically, it was a monster all along.

comment How long would it take to suffocate in a demiplane created by the spell of the same name?
+1 for each demiplane having its own physics re: air. There's a lot of precedent to this in old Planescape material: The astral doesn't have air, but it has the idea of breathing, so breathing works; The etherial doesn't have air, but it is filled with potential matter that becomes air when people try to breathe it; On the plane of fire, the "air" is actually thin, breathable fire; In Limbo, characters need to will chaos-stuff into being air for a while; The quasi-elemental plane of vaccuum is what it says on the tin...

comment Sacrificing character integrity for the gameplay?
@nitsua60 Being aware of a difference in preferred play styles won't necessarily help unless the players are also aware that all playstyles are equally valid, and know how to play harmoniously with multiple different playstyles at the table. While these things come intuitively to some players, others need some coaching to "get it." Maybe provide some advice on that score?

comment How would a Flesh to Stone'd Hydra with Shape Stone cast on it regrow limbs once Stone to Flesh is cast on it?
@Urbatin Note also that Stone to Flesh will not cause a stone flower bed to turn into a flower bed made of flowers - it'll turn it into a flower bed made of meat, which is kinda gross. Deforming a hydra into a flower bed will usually kill it for the same reasons that deforming it into a paper-thin sheet will usually kill it. Having it be stone while the deformation is taking place will at best delay its death until it turns back into flesh.

comment How family-friendly is the Ravenloft setting and the Curse of Strahd storyline?
Gore ain't the only thing that can make horror inappropriate for kids, and the OP isn't the GM and so has very little power over gore levels anyway.

comment A player was bucking my style and I lost my temper. What can I do from here?
@KorvinStarmast It was a game arranged through a game store, so there's a high chance that the players didn't yet know each other - and also a high chance that they're of similar age to the OP. I strongly suspect that everyone at the table was still getting used to the social dynamic and still unsure of what was and wasn't acceptable behaviour for that situation. Yes, they didn't call out Rolls-his-eyes, but I don't think this should be taken as a sign that they approve of what he did.

@GamingCrusade Apologising doesn't mean you're a pushover; It means you understand your own limitations, and that's a strength. It also lets people know you're not a jerk who never apologises, which is a nice plus. Anyway, it's possible that Rolls-his-eyes was just having a bad day last time, but if he keeps on saying he should be elsewhere, you should politely agree and point out the exit.
