comment Maximum bookkeeping fantasy game with magic
@doppelgreener - Yes, but this particular recommendation request really wouldn't be helpful to much of anyone even with a perfect answer, so, meh.

@Bobson - The review said it was a book claiming to be an actual system. Though it was a parody it was at least theoretically playable.

If anyone can track down the name it would be appreciated. I would be surprised if every dragon magazine ever published doesn't have at least one copy in the hands of a regular on this site.

comment How can I roleplay multiclassing to explain new class features?
In 4e you could pretty much re-fluff any class into any occupation with almost zero effort.

comment RPG With Character Moral Growth and Corruption?
@SevenSidedDie - Meh. If the OP says "I want a RPG with a really long history that's really really popular, and by the way I've heard of D&D but I don't like it because everyone just gets eaten by dragons" then a good answer doesn't need to put the OP's misconceptions front and center, it can focus on why D&D fits the criteria.

comment RPG With Character Moral Growth and Corruption?
@SevenSidedDie Yes. The reasons for excluding Pendragon are incorrect based on the stated desires in the question.

comment As a GM, how can I stop killing my games?
@SevenSidedDie Nope. It doesn't usually work out that way. You just have to make the plots fit together in the player's minds. The usual RPG has somewhat limited plot coherency to begin with and you can often get away with it without the players feeling let down at all.

comment How effective are foreshadowing cutscenes that PCs would be unaware of?
@SteveJessop - That's a good point. It's more that sometimes you don't want to ruin things by giving away the wrong information. Letting players play with the dramatic irony too could work well - and is arguably more like dramatic irony in a movie or book.

comment What skill would you use to determine a scent?
The GM could make a new skill that is usable untrained. Then it kind of automatically becomes a wisdom check almost all the time, but gives players the option to develop it further.
