comment Inventiveness vs. breaking the game; How do I encourage one, without enabling the other?
Roll for each vial separately. Or if there really are 200, roll a D20 then apply the next success roll to that many of the bottles, rinse and repeat. This guy is swinging a mace of TPK.

comment Wraiths across multiple games
To offer a counter to this, I come from a D&D background for pen and paper, but come even earlier from a Video Game/Fantasy Book background and I don't associate wraiths as soul/life stealing at all. I associate them more with what D&D peeps would call a Lich, or a lesser Lich. This idea comes from earlier Elder Scrolls, Ultima, and Final Fantasy games, and the father of all this stuff the Ring Wraiths from Lord of the Rings.

comment What should I consider when creating a time travel adventure?
Warning: Do NOT split the party and allow some to travel and others not to. Reasons should be self-evident.

comment What's the purpose of Sex?
Anyone else get a big belly laugh from someone on RPG.SE asking "What's the purpose of Sex?" Let us take a moment to laugh at ourselves and our stereotypes.

He asked for help with this, this odd wording at the end is what made it sound wrong to him.

@SevenSidedDie I mostly agree, but there is more to it than that. There will still be plenty of encounters, just wrapped in a matryoshka doll of other game play. They need an epic beast for their monster pit? They have to go pursue and subdue it. They want to wipe out a rival gang? They combat their leaders while their underlings clash all around. It'll work.

@MrJinPengyou I can handle the integration, but ideally I'd like something that makes use of the same assets. A system based on D30's would be a poor choice. Answer with shadowrun and the related books and example rules. Take a stab!

+1 for using the theory of multiple intelligences as the basis for an RPG system.
