I've been playing Dungeons and Dragons (v 3.5) on and off now for about 10 years. Although I consider myself a novice DM and prefer playing to refereeing, DMing is most of what I do these days. I've slowly been building up reputation here by almost exclusively asking the somewhat obvious questions easily cleared up by the sites more experienced players, and hope to someday be knowledgeable enough to start answering some. That will likely involve branching out into some new RPGs, be it Pathfinder, or one of the FATE systems. If you have a system you'd like to trumpet the merits of, feel free to convince me the next time we bump into each other in chat.

comment Does the target of a spell know who is casting it?
+1 for a superior answer, but I would comment that I still believe my comment about the target's prior experience or knowledge about magic would modify their perception of "what is going on".

comment What are the essential features of a successful evil campaign?
Thanks for giving me lots of quest ideas for my evil campaign with this answer, as well as voicing the reason why I think this campaign could work without turning into a horror show - evil is often dependent on your point of view.

Thanks! This answer contains a lot of the concretes I was looking for (wanting to anticipate).

comment What are the essential features of a successful evil campaign?
I appreciate the insight that perhaps this interest in evil is perhaps a result of my constraining the players overly much :) I will have to do some thinking about that, but in the meantime, I'll toss them a bone with an evil campaign. It may just be a matter of judicious use of "fade to black", agreed upon ahead of time.

comment How do I encourage player-GM storytelling collaboration without “breaking” my game?
This is a great answer to the second question I asked, but I'm still searching for an answer to the first implied part (perhaps I need to highlight it in my question better) - how do I encourage players to make suggestions in the first place? :) Perhaps you could elaborate?
