comment Regeneration while dying in 4th edition
Huh so is "dies" synonymous with "dying"? I would expect them to be different states.

@MaurycyZarzycki Sounds like you need to read Hogfather :)

comment How to keep my mount alive/relevant as a fighter
@andrew One thing you can ask your DM about is giving Mako the mechanical abilities from some mount-giving prestige class, but reflavoring it to match whatever's going on with your character and his mount.

comment How do I make headshot rules interesting?
Keep in mind that anything the players can do, their enemies theoretically could do as well... and there's a lot more enemies than there are players.

comment What can be done to maintain balance in a magic system in which mages must construct their own spells?
This sounds a heck of a lot like the magic system in the Death Gate Cycle, so you could even use some of the magic used in the later books and the appendices for inspiration.

comment Any advice on how to politely approach a friend on problems with her character(s)?
Honestly it sort of sounds like she just wants to hang out and tolerates the RPGs because they're a group activity. Maybe try switching to board games?

@SevenSidedDie baby diaper is a snob's universal constant :)

comment How to play a character that has an alien mindset and thought process?
IIRC strong emotions will leave a mark in the Force (like that one cave where Luke thought he saw Vader), and I wouldn't be surprised if force sensitives can choose to impress emotions into objects and areas. As experienced by humans, their art is probably things like "holding this stick makes you feel a faint sense of regret, tinged with overtones of resentment and a faint waft of baby diaper".

comment Does the Master at Arms feat work for Shields?
I guess welding spikes to your shield is equivalent to painting your vehicle red?

comment What is the mythos behind Kult?
I don't know, I think it gave me a pretty good idea of what the mythos is like. Some things are better experienced than explained.

comment Why don't weapons grant some sort of defense?
Active defenses like parrying are also rolled in to the interpretation of HP; for instance, if you get attacked but only take 1 HP of damage, that could represent a parry with your weapon that left you slightly more tired than before but otherwise unharmed.

comment Who actually makes the Magic Books that boost stats?
I like this a lot actually - the rules are only for crafting a stat book on purpose, but stat books can be randomly created whenever anything particularly epic happens. Sure, if you set out to you can craft a book that'll grant +5 int by blowing five wishes and four months on it, but Mordenkainen's Doctoral Thesis does that just because of the eldritch energies put in to it (mostly coffee).
