  • 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 Continuum - why frag now?
I don't know Continuum (because it's out of print, sadly), but maybe it's because you did something to Brett just recently in your relative lifespans that's causing him to go to that time and change things? Or is that too much causality in a game like this?

Is there even a creator? Maybe magic in D&D is like Maxwell's equations in real life: discovered, universal, sans creator.

I would use Dungeon World instead: fast character and party creation, snappy gameplay, light on GM prep.

comment How to Determine *Honest* Sincerity
I'm not used to systems in which you roll to tell the truth. More commonly, I'm rolling to convince or persuade.

I can't help but think this isn't as useful as it could be without knowing what system you'll be using.
