comment How to make extremely lethal stories in Fate
@Theik I didn't mention having a mechanical difficulty. While there is no hard mechanical rule that I see as being a problem, I have learned that going against the spirit of the game, especially as explicitly described by the game itself, leads to pretty bad results.

comment How to make extremely lethal stories in Fate
Actually I really like this answer, for some reason it feels like Fate to me (character goals, narrative-driven metagaming...). One question though: do you have experience running this kind of game, or something similar?

comment How to make extremely lethal stories in Fate
@Theik sorry about that, it seems I didn't copy the right part of the quote... It is part of a page long discussion on why death isn't encouraged in Fate games, how it kind of goes against the spirit of the game, and how it should be kept for pivotal and extremely important conflicts

comment How to handle public displays of affection between players during the game?
+1 for the not shaming the making out itself, that's something I was worried to see in the answers

comment RPG system for “town management”?
+1 for Reign :) Could you add some info on the system (ORE is not known to everyone), to how it manages the organizations themselves, and to your own experiences playing it?

comment How can I DM a character with more social skills than me?
Well, unfortunately I don't know if the people commenting earlier have the opportunity to join the chat right now, so if they read this at some point: for what it's worth, the "loud issue" has been corrected.

comment How to build a blaster/damage wizard or sorcerer in Pathfinder?
With Spell Perfection, all bonuses are doubled, so you get about +6 to your DCs for your favorite spell, and about +10 against SR (it is mentioned under Spell Perfection entry in the feats section, and again for the 15th level entry). As for reformulating it... honestly, that wouldn't be a great idea. I would end up repeating and paraphrasing it, which would be disrespectful to the original author (that's the reason why I put it as a quote rather than just putting it as my own answer)

@Theik Ok I see; and actually the last edit is perfect, good job to the author :)

comment What throwing weapons are treated as light weapons?
@thedarkwanderer It is RAW, but still doesn't really answer the question, as it is only applicable for melee weapons that are thrown... What is the SE policy in this kind of situation? Accept an answer that doesn't answer the question, or leave the question open even though an answer might never come?

comment What is the status of all the Primarchs?
I'm mixed about the Records expunged parts... While it's fun and all, if there is info about them somewhere, well, it's part of the answer. If not, maybe it should be specified

comment How to build a blaster/damage wizard or sorcerer in Pathfinder?
That's a VERY broad topic, there are a lot of discussion out there, and a lot of available builds already, not sure this is relevant to SE

comment Pathfinder: Does Mystic Theurge allow me to use arcane spell slots for domain spells?
Especially considering this 'discussion' (or rather, rant) happens on every question or answer mentioning the Mystic Theurge

comment Opportune Parry and Incorporeal attacks
Actually I think the main point is that the parry completely falls into the category of "corporeal effects that do not cause damage", no matter whether it's an attack or not, good call

comment Effect of jade contact on tainted individuals
Can't believe I missed that, thanks! Also, all those characters have the Unholy Beauty power, hence their current mission infiltrating the court. Thanks again!

I love it. Are you a Scorpion IRL or something?

comment Balancing character intelligence against players wits
1) Are the players having fun? 2) You say "GREEN's character needs to figure this one out himself", but not it's player? Then could you just have GREEN's character figure out the answer, even if BLUE's player found it?

comment Are there androids in Shadowrun?
...which should probably be an answer rather than extensive comments. I'll proceed to do that.

comment Are there androids in Shadowrun?
@SevenSidedDie What I meant (oh, the limitations of written text) was that the question asks for androids (aka humanoid robots) and then proceed to ask about AI. That's several questions. Is there androids/humanoid robots? Yes. Are there ways to put AI in androids? Yes. Has it been done in cannon? No.

comment When Does the Blood Arcanist Gain the Arcanist Exploit Class Feature?
Not sure the Blood Arcanist is considered as losing the Arcanist Exploit class feature. It is modified, but he technically still has the feature.
