Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Started playing with AD&D 1e and GMing with AD&D 2e. Ran D&D 3.x, 4e briefly, then became a fan of indie games and the OSR. Particularly fond of GMless and short-form games because they suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment Can a DM disallow the Candle of Invocation exploit using RAW?
You don't even need to be semi-joking about it: "It doesn't exist in this universe," is a good serious answer!

Yes: RAW says the DM can change or ignore rules. Done.

comment Filling in holes in published adventures?
Do you specifically want advice for filling plot holes, or just dealing with plot holes? For example, one of the ways of dealing with plot holes without filling them is deciding that they're mysteries—for the SHIELD example, SHIELD Command doesn't need to have a reason that they'd tell the PCs, so you don't need to answer it and you can wonder yourself why they're doing it and maybe playing the game will give you some answers, or not.

comment A basic rules summary for the Doctor Who Adventures in Time and Space RPG
@Tynam I think a complete description is outside the scope of the site. This is more of a "teach a man to fish" answer, with one caught fish as an example of how it's done.

@Chase If you're in the Forgotten Realms (which I'm guessing based on "Shar"), this stuff is detailed in Faiths & Avatars.

Just FYI, if you have a copy of Adobe Acrobat Pro you can make the PDFs you have editable yourself.

I'll ping Adam and see if he can share his experience running that game.

comment Do you have to take the Advantage “Free access to any Discipline” to use Psychic Powers as a Mentalist?
It's certainly not subjective; we just don't seem to have many A:BF experts around here. Patience.

This is exactly what our MC did. My Hardholder and the Hocus had a lot of conflict where our goals conflicted or our underlings caused problems.
