comment On Challenging D&D's Expectations on Death and Wealth accumulation
Yes, that one part of the three in my answer is related to the fact that many people want to murder hobo when playing as evil part. Indeed. However, the tedious repetition as well as the undead xp multiplier parts are valid for 'the others', too.

@SevenSidedDie Haha. Of course. On the other hand, I think it's a safe assumption that a large percentage of people who play an evil campaign with the current, unfinished D&D Next rules are in fact out for murder-hoboing. Which is why I wrote 'many' in my answer. Your impression that I treat those many as 'all' is exactly that - your impression. :)

Well, the question is tagged D&D Next; and as of now, rule support for non-combat related things is lacking, and D&D in general places pretty heavy emphasis on combat. Sure, stuff like stealth assassinations, political intrigue or maybe a slaver merchant business could all be done; but it would be dependent on dm pity. So yeah...

comment Coercing a silver dragon
BG2 is a great game, but it's different in many ways from tabletop RPGs and how things would be handled there. I don't have a source, it's just how I would handle it as DM - a good guy that uses evil is at least toying with it, and faces a great chance to be corrupted by it. Alignment questions are notoriously hard to source (and answer), since the way D&D presents them they are neither complete nor fully consistent, add to that that there are differences between editions...

comment How to handle a rules-lawyer player?
If you manage to find a balance between existing (known) powers and custom ones, you can even reward that player a bit. He might still know some things (which gives the party a minor advantage), but not the main powers (which is what you want).
