comment How can I create a Prisoner's Dilemma-style choice in Paranoia?
Yeah I was kinda under the impression that this "snitch or not" interaction was fundamental to Paranoia - maybe your players don't realize that they'll be rewarded for pointing out traitors?

comment Tips and pitfalls for a variable-size group
I'm having some trouble thinking of built-in reasons for absence that don't sound like deus ex machinas, could you add in a few examples? I mean a modern setting could have (say) business trips or something, but I'm not sure how you would handle it in a setting where adventuring is a full-time job.

comment What body parts can I use to deliver a spell whose range is “touch”?
There might be RP reasons, like stumbling into someone to discreetly deliver a touch-range spell with your shoulder while your hands are tied behind your back...

comment Pathfinder Battle Royale!
@KRyan Do you know if there's a summary or something like that of the Test of Spite? It looks really interesting, but I don't really have the intestinal fortitude to sit through hundreds of pages of forum posts.

comment How many sorcerer and wizard spells are there in D&D 3.5?
Wow, the only level for which there aren't more transmutation spells than anything else is 9th - and even then it gets 2nd place.

comment Why do spells need to be “prepared”?
@Pulsehead It's like the difference between someone with savant syndrome and a mathematician. The savant can give you answers instantly, but only in a limited field; the mathematician can give you answers in any field, but it takes time to research them.

comment When GMing in a high-tech game world how do you handle potentially disruptive tech?
@DampeS8N The "hotfix" idea is absolutely perfect if you're playing Paranoia. Depends on the system, setting and tone I guess.

comment How do I use Shamans as opponents in Shadowrun?
I got the mental image of a Steve Jobs-ish CEO-shaman haunted by a totem of such flawless perfection that he will bend all of the corporation's resources towards producing a physical version of it, regardless of the costs.
