comment How do multiple natural attacks work?
Hi, welcome to rpg.SE. I edited your answer to make it a bit easier to read. Please check that I did not change the content by accident.

@Azrael Can you post that as an answer?

comment What is the Challenge Rating of this custom “Volcanic Dragon”?
The linked rules are about improving existing creatures by adding HD or special attacks. I don't see any indication that they should be used to rate a completely original monster.

comment How to design and clearly represent a 3-D location?
I was thinking about dungeon map, not tactical maps. How do you handling navigation in a large dungeon complex, for instance? Do you show a map to players, handwave the navigation, have players draw the map, or something else?

comment How to design and clearly represent a 3-D location?
Do you have players map as they go based on your verbal descriptions and the occasional sketch (the old school way), or will you be providing a map to them?

comment What are some character development tools?
You might say a few words about the trait vote, which seems relevant for the question.

comment Can any creature elect to make touch attacks or ranged touch attacks?
There's no AoO for dealing nonlethal damage: d20pfsrd.com/gamemastering/combat#TOC-Nonlethal-Damage , d20srd.org/srd/combat/injuryandDeath.htm

comment How can I implement Cinematic Fencing (à la “The Princess Bride”)?
If you plan to use Audatia, why not refer to the historical manuscripts themselves at Wiktenauer wiktenauer.com ?

comment Need to play D&D on a budget, at least for now
Writing something about core rulebooks and editions would be appropriate.

comment How much is enough for a 5th-ranked character to beat a 2nd-ranked character?
The NPCs can't have precomputed ranks, since the ranks depend on the player characters and on which NPCs are in use.

I think that, by the book, only the ranks matter. I might not remember this correctly, though. Where does the book mention the points being important?

@HeyICanChan There are now two non-trivial examples.

comment How to decide the level of new monsters?
Can people who voted to close the question please suggest further improvement in order to reopen it? As far as I see, the question can be answered from a position of experience ("This is how I do it.") or by providing a reference (LotFP referee book does it thus, Into the Odd like this). The answers can be rated based on their merit: Do they rely on fictional details only, which creatures do they cover, and are they fast enough to use in play?

comment How to decide the level of new monsters?
A more detailed way of doing what you write under racial HD is what I am looking for. Might be that nobody has done such a procedure yet.

comment How to decide the level of new monsters?
@HeyICanChan In the sense that even if given a quite detailed description of a monster, you still can't deduce their HD from it. Or if you can, then please post the method as an answer.

comment Can I improve “free” affiliations during character burning?
I don't see the thread talking about affiliations that one buys with resource points, or about improving trait-granted affiliations with resource points. Any source for that?

comment How can I have non-Euclidean dungeons in non-magic settings?
For similar examples, consider the Möbius strip (most simple non-oriented manifold that is otherwise reasonable) or a torus (simple example of a manifold with non-trivial homology).

comment What are the core tropes or assumptions of D&D?
@TimothyAWiseman Consider the role of clerics that sell healing spells, which is fairly common. Or city or dungeon lighted by continual flames.

comment Structure for a political sandbox game
@Sardathrion Yes, but I find it lacks the structure I would like, namely point 1. in the question.

comment Structure for a political sandbox game
-1: I am specifically not looking for a conflict system. Does HotB, Ars magica, etc. have guidelines or procedures for creating political conflicts, for keeping the actions of factions or persons consistent and somewhat predictable, or other such material that provides a framework for the conflicts? Those might be interesting.
