comment Starting the first game tips?
A better way of making this point is, pick a cinematic or literary reference world known to all the players and say "this is going to be like Arrakis but with sand dwarves and golems" or "this is going to be set in the Princess Bride universe with these races and guilds". Yes, it is great if all the players have seen the same movie or read the same book and want to play a game there, but it does not have to be Lord of the Rings or whatever "standard fantasy" means to you.

comment House Rules for AD&D Character Generation (1e+)
My thoughts: 3d6 is intended to be the stat distribution for HEROES, in the rules as written. Anything higher is stat inflation, and implies that only characters with above-average stats are fun to play -- which is a self-contradictory idea, because everyone can't be above average. When multiple 16's are required to qualify for a class, stat inflation quickly becomes runaway stat inflation; then why not just give everyone d4+14? Best to nip this stat fetishism in the bud and have fun playing your character, not bragging about your numbers.

Cool, I'd try this but personally I'd start each attribute at 7 to avoid stat inflation.

So according to your system no character can ever have below 10 in any stat? Don't you think it's fun to play a character with at least one weakness? Sorry but this is munchkinism.

comment Third-Person Limited Narration or Third-Person Omniscient Narration?
I understand role-playing psychological limitations; your character may be compelled to fornicate with animals, while you yourself are not. I don't understand how this means the DM should give the player information his character doesn't have. Maybe you can give an example.
