comment Anyone know of a good generic moral/alignment tracking system?
There are arguments against K's interpretation of the alignment/afterlife situation, and alternative interpretations proposed that aren't so cringe-worthy. That aside, though, this is an excellent answer. +1.

comment How does one work a druid into a campaign?
Couldn't the druid have gone there for a drink and a place to stay, like any other character might? There's nothing in any rules or published setting I've read that suggests every druid has to sleep in a tree while sober.

comment How do I force a party from the Astral Plane?
On the "confusion about travelling the Astral" bit, it might be worth adding that in earlier editions, the astral plane didn't have the concept of distance as it is understood on other planes. There, the distance between two landmarks is more akin to the distance between one idea and the next: As long or short as you can conceptualise it to be. Literally. As in, intelligent characters travel faster because they can more rapidly reason their way to the conclusion (of their journey).

comment What is the maintenance cost of a starship?
This is a great answer! Not exactly what I was looking for (I was hoping for a more RAW-ish answer), but definitely useful and worth a +1!

@JoshuaAslanSmith No, I mean there's a RAW tag on the question, thereby justifying your writing this answer from a mechanical perspective rather than a setting lore one.

comment How do I force a party from the Astral Plane?
@JonathanHobbs Not that I know of, but surely some enterprising gish has researched a mass dismissal spell by now. That said, it's not really necessary to make it multi-target, is it? Just have multiple castings and casters, possibly due to a staff or other magical item; You'll need those to guarantee all the PCs fail their saves anyway.

As a followup adventure, you could have the players trying to win their ship back from the Githyanki, who are using it to mount raids on the Prime...

There is a RAW tag, so this answer seems relevant to that.

comment Playing a loyal character without it being boring
+1 for talking about the issue out-of-character; I've seen whole parties almost fall apart because players didn't think to discuss in-character issues away from the game table.

comment Being a more “flexible” Dungeon Master
Also note that fourth edition has some rather strict balance requirements constraining the drop rate of magic items; Your players may have a legitimate concern.
