comment Running a game with intentionally “over-powered” PCs
A piece of advice: I would recommend against the "all 18", as it reduces differences between characters; give them a high amount of points to share between stats instead.

comment Games based on Eclipse Phase's world and/or system
I have heard of several MHR-hacks in progress, but nothing as developed as what you are looking for.

comment Is Greater Mage Hand worth it?
I just want to point out that the two current answers are totally different, but yet both good and valid, that's great.

comment Dealing with skill rerolls by several players
+1, understanding the "you don't always have to roll" was a big step forward as a GM.

comment PC in chains, planned myself into a corner
A NPC getting you out of a jail you have absolutely no way of getting out by yourself is a straight-on deux ex machina.

comment Games with a granular alignment system?
Note that for NWN, your actions impacted the whole group if playing in multi. Every time you gained more than 1pt in an alignment, everyone in the group gained 1pt in the same alignment (so you threaten someone and gain 5 Evil, everyone in the group gains 1 Evil). It was... interesting :)

comment Derogatory term for dragon blooded?
Once they realized they were 'Celestial Incarna blooded', my PCs started using 'dragon-blooded' as a derogatory term, a la 'Mudblood'. It's all in the way you say it :)

comment How do I calculate my attack bonus?
@Tank You seem to have misunderstood the stat bonus part. Each stat corresponds to a definite stat bonus, as shown here. Your bonus on a stat is what is shown under the Modifier column. It is not possible for a 15 to be +4 or for a 6 to be +0.

comment Should house rules and custom material be created before experiencing the game?
Agreed. Depends on the game, depends on the GM, depends on the players...

Wait, you mean you don't send assassins to kill the PCs while they sleep? Why?

I hope the disclaimer doesn't offend anyone, I prefer being very clear rather than having an answer that doesn't answer the question I wanted to ask.

comment How do I kidnap my characters without bending the rules?
I would add that I actually experienced this situation.. from a player point of view. GM asked me if I was ok starting the game kidnapped, with the others trying to free me. I accepted, and fun was had.
