I'm a game designer that's been playing tabletop games since the early '00s. Most of my experience is with the D&D 3/3.5/Pathfinder ruleset, but I've been branching out more in the past few years.

comment How to do I show my players it's their own damn fault, without making them feel bad?
Not really an answer, but if someone is negotiating services in bad faith like that kobold duke is, I would probably give the players a Sense Motive, probably with a bonus because of how bad it will be if they get tricked.

That extra capitalization was a typo, not a formatting thing. :)

Let's talk about this in chat.

comment How do I determine an NPC's skill levels?
That's sort of my point. D&D attempts to use the same rules that govern players to make NPCs, but that means that you can't have an NPC that's super-skilled at something without him also being high-level. Since someone can clearly be good at a task without also being a combat god, the rules must have a hole in them.

Do you mean 'rebuke' or 'turn'? You say that the "rebuke undead ability sends undead fleeing", which is a description of Turn Undead, not Rebuke Undead. Also, are you referring to the use of Rebuke where you can command the targeted undead, or the one where the undead simply cowers?
