Are there mechanical rewards for completing these tasks?

comment What kinds of player contributions work well and under what circumstances?
@waxeagle 1. Curiosity. I want to better understand how these rewards influence the experience. 2. Note that I would tie most of them to fiction, in some way. 3. A gesture of gratitude for those who commit to the game and improve the play experience. 4. With some specific behaviour, the reward can give permission for players to do stuff they would not have thought of otherwise. (Give permission in a social sense.)

comment What alternatives are there to replace orcs, kobolds, and hobgoblins in low-level encounters?
@BrianBallsun-Stanton: As user867 said, draw from sources that are not D&D. E.g. poetry such as goblin market, various mythologies and fairy tales.

comment Dealing with a problem player not playing to their character aspects
@Tetra Could you be more specific about the player's responses, and edit it into the main question? In particular, is he reluctant about changing the character, admitting the dissonance between aspects and play, or something else entirely?

@Tetra Does the player realise that the aspects and his gameplay do not match, or does he think they do?

comment Where to find an adventure with a crashed spaceship
I know of it but find it ill-suited for my purposes, as it does not include enough detail and somehow feels wrong in this context. Thanks for the suggestion.

comment Where to find an adventure with a crashed spaceship
I have not heard of either movie. As for balance, if the player characters get powerful, then I expect them to seek greater challenges, or just enjoy their power. I'm fine with either.
