comment What's the difference between a ranged touch attack and a ray?
It had special meaning in 3.5, but I can't find anything similar for Pathfinder. I'd speculate it is a legacy of 3.5 that wasn't fully cleaned up. Hopefully someone can find some evidence and turn this into an answer.

comment What is a good Modern Fantasy investigative system?
Also worth looking at the Esoterrorists which is more-or-less the same game but with a slightly different focus.

comment How can I allow one character to sneak off and assassinate an NPC without boring the other players?
If you do introduce a Good Samaritan or other such contrivance, then you can introduce an alternative cost such as incurring a debt (the not so Good Samaritan) or replacing a trap that might have killed the character with one that enchanted them with a curse (perhaps one that allows the heir to track them down over time).

comment Roleplaying games for political intrigues, mass battles
I'd suggest DramaSystem, but I get the impression you want something where the crunch is focused on the Kingdom stats. Is that the case?

@MatthieuM. — No, I listen to the Ken & Robin podcast ;) (It's the term they use for fantasy D20 games).

I'm in the process of running the Kingmaker campaign. Currently my players have made it to level 7 and we're focusing on running a set of Kingdom turns to let the kingdom grow before starting on book 3.
