  • The best gaming advice: Talk to each other like reasonable adults.
  • Dice fudging is bullshit.
  • Ignoring rules is a sign that you're playing the wrong game.
  • Rather than hack on the rules of a game, stop to consider that a different game might better do what you want.
  • Rule Zero is bullshit.
  • System matters.

Brevity is characteristic of okeefe's answers. … It's a complete solution to the problem, in a small package. —SevenSidedDie

comment How much are the players supposed to know?
At some point, you have to engage the rules for what they are. Immersion as goal in and of itself makes a poor game.

comment Semi-random name generator
As @AlexP suggested, the Story Games Names Project (pdf) is a list of lists of names broken into types of genres, including cultures. It's easily randomizable (lists are labeled 1-20) but, of course, finite. Russian is included (as are Finnish and Swedish) but not Norwegian, unfortunately.
