Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Have been playing and GMing D&Ds since AD&D 1e up through D&D 4e, with side-quests into even older editions. Becoming a fan of indie games and the OSR in the mid 2000s expanded my horizons. Fond of GMless and short-form games that suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

Per the rules for game recommentations, you have to have done this for this purpose, and base the answer directly on that experience. This prevents everyone from just adding their speculation as answers and infinitely expanding the list of answers. Have you done this?

Someone who already knows what you're talking about will understand this answer, but the point of writing an answer is to be understood by people who don't already know what you're talking about. Please expand this with some description: why this works, how it's fast (or not), etc. Tell us a story, paint a picture. Back this up with your experience.

comment Is exiting the Warp inside a solar system as catastrophic as entering it from inside one?
It's a good answer, that's not it. It just doesn't need things like "I am not sure whether this question is for one of the WH40k TTRPG's or not". If it wasn't, it would have been rejected as off topic. You can safely answer questions here knowing that it is for an RPG.

Given that we only deal with traditional RPGs here, even a lore question is necessarily in the RPG context. Given that, you should probably amend this answer to drop those caveats and answer more confidently.

comment Looking for Dungeon World feedback on my KS
Sorry, I think you're looking for a forum, which this isn't. (If you're curious about here, take the tour and check out the help center.) We don't field survey/feedback questions like this.

comment Can I use a Wolf or a Dire-Wolf as a Warlock familiar?
No problem! The best way to apologise (and head off downvotes) is just to reword it so it's less flame bait-y.

comment Can I use a Wolf or a Dire-Wolf as a Warlock familiar?
Welcome to rpg.se! Please take a look at the tour; it's a useful introduction to the site. This wording is unnecessarily divisive and could be improved while retaining its point.
