comment How do I deal with PCs who are evil?
Why would an evil character not want to work with good characters? They're not going to take advantage of him, he can take advantage of them. The question is why a party of good characters would want an evil in their midst.

comment How should I handle a ruling that really hurts my character?
I think you hit the nail on the head here--I rather suspect this is a 2E DM that didn't fully update to the newer rules.

comment Can you ready an action for “immediately before my next turn”?
@DougM The fireball goes off--but uses up the next action in the process.

comment Do projectiles exist in flight?
@Soulrift The projectile isn't teleporting. Just because there's normally no defined instant for when it's 20' away doesn't mean you can't trigger on it.

Why not trigger on <siege projectile comes within 20 feet> or something like that?

comment 3d6 vs a d20: What is the effect of a different probability curve?
@AceCalhoon Yeah, I have always found the D&D skill checks far too variable. I have seriously considered 3d6 or perhaps even 4d6-4 (gives 0-20 instead of 1-20) for non-combat actions.

comment Can you cast dominate person on yourself?
Another thought: When you cast it upon yourself you're basically dividing your mind into a controller and puppet but you still function normally. When someone else casts it on you what do they hit? The controller or the puppet? I would say the controller as it's the easier target. Thus there's no benefit.

comment How can I thwart a vampire in the party planning on dominating all of us?
How do you not know?? You only rise as a vampire if you die--was he away long enough to die and rise? And unless the vampire that created him is dead he's under it's control, not free willed. And how is he avoiding sunlight?

comment Can my wizard conjure a bedroll so that I don’t have to carry a sleeping mat?
I have a problem with summon bedroll. Powerwise it's obviously a weak 1st level spell--but 1st level spells are normally no more than 1 hr/level.

comment How should a GM deal with sexuality in an RPG?
@mxyzplk I don't see who else addressed this aspect of it.
