  • 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.

comment What's fair compensation for creating a one-armed drow?
Honestly, let him keep the arm but make him go on a quest of the wizard's choosing. That sounds way more enjoyable.
