Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Have been playing and GMing D&Ds from B/X to D&D 5e. Becoming a fan of indie games and the OSR in the mid 2000s expanded my horizons for both trad and indie games. Fond of GMless and short-form games that suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment Is there a fantasy system that has a similar mechanical complexity to Ars Magica, but with a more robust melee system?
Unfortunately, game-recommendation questions have become off-topic since this was asked.

comment Is there any way to eliminate the material component cost for Glyph of Warding?
If the comments are necessary for brainstorming an answer, that suggests the question is off topic. But this looks on-topic to me, so there must not be a reason to brainstorm in the comments. Thanks for refraining!

comment Racial advantages/disadvantages for a rules light system
Hi! This is a question suited to a discussion forum, but as you can see in our tour we are different from such forums and laser-focused on solving specific problems rather than giving suggestions. If you have a specific roadblock preventing your own creativity with this, asking about that specifically may be a problem we could solve, but for just suggestions I will recommend one of these forums instead.

comment Would people like a game with only humans?
Hi Groondor. It looks like you were expecting this site to be a discussion forum, but it's not and isn't actually suited to this kind of question. We can suggest a number of discussion forums where asking for people's thoughts is totally on-topic though. We'd suggest trying one of those. Good luck!

comment What happens if you make an impossible wish
This is a nice answer in that it answers the real question without getting bogged down in whether the example is really an impossible wish or not.
