comment Can a Pathfinder Vampire store blood for later use?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about the shelf life of blood (which is a question for medical experts, not us) and depends on knowing whether vampires need to drink blood directly from the vein (which no known Pathfinder supplement explains). The best answer, and the only reliable answer you'll get, will come from your GM.

comment Sixth level Magus Skirnir in Pathfinder. What are some good feats? (Not looking for metagaming/optimizing)
As written, it's not at all clear what you want these feats to do for your character - and without that information, we can't provide a concrete answer.

comment Where does the Sun go at night?
@Schilcote From what I've heard it's "finite but unbounded," which (grossly simplified) means that if you keep going in one direction, the map eventually loops. There's a lot of fun to be had with small demiplanes that operate in a similar way, especially if you can trick a PC into firing an arrow at himself.

comment Is a Servo Skull still “alive”?
If the skull manages to retain some lingering fragment of the psyker's connection to the warp, you might not want to listen too closely to what it screams.

comment What ways are there to magically enforce an agreement?
If nothing else, having a Kolyarut looming menacingly nearby whenever one party considers breaking the contract will severely discourage actually doing so.

comment Where does the Sun go at night?
Would an infinitely-large sun an infinite distance away that travels around an infinite plane need to travel an infinite number of times faster than its own light in order to appear to be in the right place at the right time?

comment What to do with Dragon Hatchlings?
Remember, be careful around PCs taking wyrmlings into combat - some of your players object to making babies fight.

comment Looking for a versatile but reasonably fast combat system for hard sci-fi setting
I believe there's another game in the WH40K universe that focuses on space marines, but I don't know what it's called.

comment Do I get to choose spells for a Faerie Dragon Familiar?
@DanceSC You should edit that into your answer.

comment Do I get to choose spells for a Faerie Dragon Familiar?
I'm not sure what the second box quote adds. It seems to be talking about what happens when the fairie dragon's master's level increases, and not what is possible when a fairie dragon familiar is first created.

comment Does 3.5e have an equivalent of the Psychic Paper from Doctor Who?
Aha, so the suggestion could easily be something like "Recognise this paper as a legitimate set of credentials" or "Believe what the person showing you this says." Nifty!

comment Can I make ability checks when my ability score is lower than the DC?
By RAW, "Automatic success on natural 20" only applies to attack rolls and saving throws versus spells. As you've mentioned, there are GMs who houserule that apply to everything or to a broader set of things.

comment Can Wizards wear cloaks and capes instead of robes?
Even wizards who prefer wearing robes tend to wear something else under them. Hopefully.

comment How do characters retreat from an encounter?
"Don't leave your hoard unguarded while there are adventurers about" is a lesson every dragon should be taught from birth.

comment How does Demon: the Descent handle the common problems with Splinters and Time Travel?
@Sandwich That can be hard to engineer in a roleplaying game - Do you have any anecdotes you could share?

comment When players have settled into “routines” for runs, how to break them out of the rut?
@longbow I probably don't need to tell you this, but I enjoy stating the obvious: Be aware that contacts are a thing players must pay for, so they expect them to be an advantage; If you make them less useful, your players may stop dealing with them.

comment Are there any sources more concretely describing the Shield spell?
#1 is sort of borne out by the fact that shield was directional in certain editions of D&D: It only protected from attacks coming from the direction the caster chose to set it against.

comment Are there any sources more concretely describing the Shield spell?
#3 is surprisingly close to how actual shields-of-the-kind-used-by-fighters work, come to think of it.

comment What are the most popular/well known larp systems that meet our requirements?
Thanks for contributing to our site, @rane. As SevenSidedDie says, including details of how your LARP system addresses the OP's concerns would really help make this answer solid.
