  • 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.
  • “Wubba Wubba!”

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

comment As a DM, what is the best way to create custom weapons and armor for your PCs?
Adapt/modify/merge some existing armor and weapons? There's a lot out there, saving you a lot of work. Actually, make the players do it, saving you all the work.
