comment Why are Wonders/Talismans double cost?
@linkhyrule5 You can blame Onyx Path this time, although they brought back most of the original developers.

I thought DSotBH got retconned away for being stupid.

comment Where I can see more examples of Effects in Mage: The Ascension?
I'm not sure why this is closed a shopping/recommendation, since the question is about one game in particular and where it can be discussed. Is the latter too open?

comment How long is the Players' Turn?
@CuentaCuentos Yeah, and players also need to push themselves to get checks. They usually don't make this mistake more than once, because they'll want more opportunities to recover.

comment Are Classic Paranoia adventures compatible with the Mongoose editions?
@Thunderforge Flashbacks added the XP-specific information, changed the names to not be silly puns, and slapped a new cover on it. The main feature for me (at the time) was that the adventures were consolidated into one book. In short, there are conversions but you're fine ignoring them. Or use the 2e rules which simpler.

comment Is there a compilation/timeline of the default 13th Age setting history?
You might be just as happy, if not happier, if you made an independent history using Microscope.

comment Can a character with two warring personalities have two alignments?
See also this related question. Would the alignment of a character with multiple personality disorder change?

comment Are there sourced statements about what inspired the D&D Demogorgon visuals
@nitsua60 I just added one. If you're interested in the history of early D&D, I can't recommend Playing at the World more highly. It's dense but rewarding.

comment Are there sourced statements about what inspired the D&D Demogorgon visuals
Peterson also has this interesting footnote on the name Demogorgon itself: “Demogorgon however has a somewhat less grand historical pedigree than Orcus. C. S. Lewis, in his Discarded Image, makes a compelling case that Demogorgon was born of a sloppy copyist, who mistakenly transcribed the Greek word for ‘demiurge’ (δημιουργόν, roughly ‘demiourgon’) as Demogorgon, which later authors interpreted as the name of a distinct fiend.”

@nitsua60 Yes. Let me rearrange the answer to be clearer.

comment Can you wear two of the same ring?
@Fering This might be a good, separate question for the site. Do a quick search first to see if it isn't already answered.

comment Any advice on a good Respawn system for pathfinder
@GMJoe Oh, it was entirely a metagame construct so that we couldn't just freely save and restore as we saw fit.

comment Should I warn my players when they're about to do something stupid?
There's at least one game that offers a “GM common sense” warning as a mechanic/merit the players can buy—Vampire: the Masquerade, I think?

comment What is a fractal style of story generator?
You should look up Microscope, mentioned in that question.

comment Re-roll a failed exploration roll?
You may want to add this bit from page 58: If the total equals or exceeds the DC, the ability check is a success—the creature overcomes the challenge at hand. Otherwise, it’s a failure, which means the character or monster makes no progress toward the objective or makes progress combined with a setback determined by the DM.

comment What happens when you touch a Sphere of Annihilation?
@Lexible Those, for the most part, aren't modeled in D&D. I do like to imagine that it floats ever so slightly above the ground. Try not to drop one in an ocean…

comment Good RPG for pirate-oriented setting
This answer could be improved by mentioning or linking to a relevant pirate playset.
