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 long would it take to doff armour heated by the Heat Metal spell?
The rules don't support running away as a viable option. The last sentence in the section on spell range is "Once a spell is cast, its effects aren’t limited by its range, unless the spell’s description says otherwise." Since the description of Heat Metal doesn't mention any range restrictions, you can use that bonus action from anywhere.

comment Game that Teaches RPGs effectively “by itself”
This is a generally good answer, and I agree that M&M is probably a good way to go, but you don't ever reference actual experience with learning to play with this system, which is what the querent is asking about. Game-rec requires a reference to actual experience, and you don't mention how this system works for people who are learning on their own.
