comment Tracking down an adept with facial sculpt
Haven't played Shadowrun, so just a comment. See this answer. Individuals can be identified by patterns in their behavior. Also, image processing algorithms are getting more and more sophisticated, and can already identify individuals without the camera seeing the person's face.

comment Can a thrown dagger do slashing damage?
Indeed, no slashing damage is possible, according to my very limited experience. Heck, bludgeoning damage (from hitting handle-first) would be orders of magnitude more damaging than a slash from badly thrown knife. But what about some curved knifee.g. karambit?

comment A system that allows for a gritty, fast, simple post-apocalyptic setting?
This is quite what me and friends are designing for fun. Uses only 6-sided dice, rules are 10 pages, setting is missing, with only another 10 pages of draft tables of weapons, items, prices, perks, skills. One rifle shot usually kills an unarmored target. Else, recovering from a heavy wound takes months.

comment How do I make an interesting escape from a fire?
I like the idea of zombies -> fire -> burning zombies ... inside a fire.

comment The “Quantum Barbarian” — Beginning the Rage Ends the Rage, and Ending the Rage Begins the Rage
I remember a comic. The barbarian became extremely calm when raging, thus gaining all the bonuses of Rage in an explainable (!?!) manner.

comment How can I have non-Euclidean dungeons in non-magic settings?
By the way, in the center of a homogeneous sphere we have no gravity. Not that a sufficiently small sphere would have gravity on it's surface ... or maybe some form of stable super-matter. Yey, now we have gravitation, varying with depth!

comment Managing complexity due to concrete-scale rules
@SevenSidedDie, it bogs down, because it introduces state - something that has to be remembered and changes all the time. Which are those two systems?

comment Managing complexity due to concrete-scale rules
... where is the chat?!? @JonathanHobbs, the question is about how to phase rules in and out as the scale of the combat changes. Do you think that is a valid question and thus I should try to emphasize it? Or is it still a bad fit here?

comment How can I help my PCs remember clues that they found?
Consider the situation (system-agnostic) when a player is playing a thief. He tries to burglarize a shop. The GM asks how, what is the algorithm. The player is not a thief and does not know how would his character do it. What shall happen?

comment Forcing others to use cursed items against their will?
I struggle for many seconds, when trying to put a necklace on a girl's neck. And she is not resisting. I guess in the example with the assassin, it would be much much easier to just slash the throat of the hero.
