  • 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

This does not provide an answer to the question. To critique or request clarification from an author, leave a comment below their post - you can always comment on your own posts, and once you have sufficient reputation you will be able to comment on any post.

comment How should I lie to the party about my character's race?
In sustained close interaction, the inherent creepiness of being elan is going to be obvious. Hiding it from the party is only useful as a short roleplaying opportunity.

The inclusion of the rules-as-written tag precludes "GM gets to decide".

comment Can a Warlock Selectively Curse Anyone they can See?
Emphasis on “can see”. Just because you selectively focus your attention on someone doesn't make them the closest person you can see.
