@Sardathrion, tarrot are outstanding! As someone on this site said, it is far easier to make something from something, than something from nothing.

comment How do I make headshot rules interesting?
2) is not really unrealistic. There are loads of people, that survived after head show/shrapnel to the head (maybe call it a brain shot, huh). Also, if gun damage is substantional, doubling it should pretty much kill instantly.

comment Techniques for skimming through travel (fast travel) without meta-teleportation
btw, I use another similar technique in yet another type of situation. When there are going to be missing players form a session, I ask them to tell me what are their characters going to do during the session. Generally the direction of the game is known and stating several actions for the future in-game week-or-so is not difficult.

comment Techniques for skimming through travel (fast travel) without meta-teleportation
I have had success with the following. I am the GM, the group is split. I alternate spotlight between the two halfs-groups at 10-15 min slices. During that time, the other group is encouraged to converse in character - on the problem at hand, on their characters, on local beverages and past heroic achievements. When I turn to them, I ask if something important happen and if there are conflicts with the rality as I see it, make adjustments.

comment How do I help create story around the table without writing it?
Outstanding answer! Also, (IMHO) write places as well.

One variety of this is to let the characters converse. They have backstories to expand.

comment Running games for a constantly unreliable group
To add to 3): talk with the players what are their characters going to do during the session. The players know where the game is heading and can give guidelines - much like the GM prepares for a session.

comment Non-magical encounter suggestions
I love this answer! Rob, care if I steel all of your ideas? Mala's answer is similar, but too ... social - my players do not care about helping. Your answer provides situations that directly require to be dealt with. If you could expand more, or maybe everyone expand this answer in the spirit of haw it has been started ...

IMO, this is an insightful answer, that however places too dark a flavour. Things need to get interesting, not necessarily wrong. Also pubs do not burn down to the ground every evening :D

This answer to another question seems a lot on topic here. If PZiviani would just expand on that!
