comment How do I handle players brute-forcing a skill until they succeed?
Saying "failure is more interesting but the players don't know it yet" is, basically, saying "failure is more interesting for me". If they don't see any interesting backlash, it effectively doesn't exist for them, does it?

comment How can I signal the scope of an adventure to players?
Why does it matter when they've "finished" an adventure? If everyone wants to continue, every adventure should feed into the next one, it doesn't have to be divided into clearly delineated story arcs.

comment My DM asked me to stop roleplaying hostility toward another PC, but it fits my character
@Erasmus the point of averting My Guy Syndrome isn't to "not act as my character so much", but to realize that our character's aspects are chosen by us, and we can, and should, choose to play characters whose behaviors don't disrupt our optimal party behavior.

comment How can I avoid metagaming when I know things my character doesn't?
Ask yourself this - is it really important that you do? Is the simulationist aspect of the game ("my character doesn't know that X is happening in the other room") more important than the narrative aspect ("story-wise, it's fitting that I show up in the other room now")?

comment Can I hide easter eggs in my spells?
As I said, no, there isn't any published precedent for it that I know of, but it shouldn't matter much.
