comment Good modifications to the lycanthropy alignment change?
+1 for bringing up that good roleplayers want this kind of conflict in their characters, and don't need mechanical sticks to prevent them from abusing it. Just because the system is set up to regulate munchkins doesn't mean good players should suffer.

comment How do I encourage a GM to use the rules as written?
I second that recommendation, for everyday life as well as around the table. If you think someone is wrong, try to re-raise the issue non-confrontationally. If it doesn't resolve the issue within 5 seconds, take it to the post-session discussion.

comment How can I make a magic, subtle, universal translator?
Regardless, if you do feel it necessary, a Muto requisite could be added to make the effect unnoticeable.

comment How can I make a magic, subtle, universal translator?
There isn't a specific description provided of the base "Speak with one human" effect, but I don't see why it would have to be an obvious effect - well, until you start talking to two people at once and each perceive it as a different language.

comment In AD&D 2e, is there a system that roughly equates to spot checks in 3.x?
I read an article online a few weeks back, probably linked to (directly or indirectly) from an answer here on the site, that talked about the lack of Spot/Search mechanics in OD&D, and why that was a good thing. I can't find it now, though. :(
