comment How do I rein in a character's backstory without discouraging the player?
I've always thought of a vendetta as somewhat reciprocal. Can you have a vendetta against someone who have no idea you even exist?

comment How effective are foreshadowing cutscenes that PCs would be unaware of?
I would add "keep it short". A 5mn cutscene is a terrible idea. A short sentence such as "Meanwhile, somewhere else, a shadowy figure observes the whole scene through a crystal ball. 'So you are still alive... I see...' Now, back to you" works well.

comment Is there a vampire/population ratio stated in the books?
Wait, there are humans in the World of Darkness setting?

comment How to communicate with your summons?
@SevenSidedDie I would argue that RAW supersedes the normal English meaning :) Attack, run, feat, all mean something in English, but something different (or rather, more specific) in the context of Pathfinder. Hence the tendency/need to check whether a common English word is defined in the context of RAW or not

comment How to design battle between characters of different scales (e.g. mecha vs. infantry)?
@monsterfurby Well, a -1/+1 makes a small difference but not that much yeah. A -2/+2 starts becoming brutal, which is how I wanted it to be :) Anyway, I think the best would be to try it in your games and tell us how it worked

comment How can I GM and play a PC without spoiling the fun?
@SevenSidedDie Ah, indeed... This actually makes the whole answer irrelevant, yes. I will think of a way to reformulate it (any advice about how to do it is appreciated!).

comment Blood Obsessed Character with Weaponized Blood?
@Bloody_Confused Be careful though that Pathfinder is somewhat less open to custom classes than DD3.5 was

comment Dealing with “fearless” players
Maybe just add some mention of the often mention advice of "talk with them". If he just starts killing their characters, they might actually see it as unfair. If he says beforehand "hey guys, I'm going to play the opponents a bit harsher now, just now that they won't hesitate to kill you anymore", it makes it more fair

comment What abilities can assist in a caster level check?
If you want to add it, the foresight Arcane school also has a +2 to Caster level tests option: d20pfsrd.com/classes/core-classes/wizard/arcane-schools/…
