comment Do I draw opportunity attacks when my mount uses flyby?
It says that an attack of opportunity, if provoked, can target the mount or the character. But the monster manual says it isn't provoked, not that it isn't provoked vs. the flying creature. Sounds like it isn't provoked at all, and so can't target the rider.

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.
