comment When adapting a setting to 13th Age, how to decide what is an Icon?
Keith Baker, designer of Eberron, had some input in the early stages of 13th Age and put together this article on how one could go about creating Eberron Icons: keith-baker.com/eberron-and-13th-age Baker isn't shy about making a group into an Icon so I would say it's allowed.

Good answer! Can anyone top it?

comment What are some suggestions for a brawler-type unarmed character in Pathfinder?
Yes, perhaps a brief comparison of their strengths and weaknesses, without going into too much detail; we can always use the SRD for further research. Thank you!

I like this answer a lot. Could you go into more detail on the three main options?

comment What are some suggestions for a brawler-type unarmed character in Pathfinder?
I hadn't considered psionics at all, and my GM is not fond of third party products, so it's unlikely I'll be able to make use of this. That said, it is a really good answer, thank you!

Yes, I'm more interested in fisticuffs than wrestling.

comment What are some suggestions for a brawler-type unarmed character in Pathfinder?
I don't mind a bit of reskinning and while I don't mind an underpowered character, other members of my group sometimes frown on my disregard for character optimisation.

comment Are there any rules for Blood Bowl careers in Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Second Edition?
Thanks! I'm not looking to represent the game itself, but rather reflect a character's involvement in the game as a career. I was thinking the Entertainer might be a good basis but the Pit Fighter is a good idea too.

I think you're right! Thank you!

comment How do I read a 4-sided die?
I have a set of twelve-sided d4s. I much prefer them to the tetrahedron style although -- like d12s -- they can roll for a long time before they stop.

comment Game system recommendation - D20 system like DnD4E but faster level up rate
mxyzplk, there's support in the book for running a ten session campaign, with characters gaining a level each session. That was my thinking behind the answer anyway.

comment What RPG converted “choose your own adventure”–style gamebooks into adventure modules?
There is a new edition of Advanced Fighting Fantasy out from Arion Games. It's perhaps also worth mentioning that the "basic" Fighting Fantasy rpg got a second volume, The Riddling Reaver; as well as the basic rules -- so you didn't need FF to use it -- it included a short campaign of -- as I recall -- four adventures.

comment Which rpg system supports freeform magic and is intended for Fantasy games?
Yep, Ars Magica seems to fit the bill.

comment What is an easy to learn and teach combat-focused game set in the Lord of the Rings series?
Using Savage Worlds would require a bit of work in terms of setting but that's the same of any game that's not already a Tolkien licence. I have never found it to be a lethal system. If anything, SW characters are by default a "cut above the notch" so if that were a requisite for Lord of the Rings play, I'd say it fits the bill there. I don't think I'd use Savage Worlds myself but nor do I think that it should be discounted as an option as it's more than up to the task.

comment What problems can I expect when adding a Rogue Trader / Dark Heresy character to a Deathwatch game?
I see. The rules around here seem to have become more strict since I last visited. My intent is to be helpful so I will come back to add some specifics.

I have some experience of Rogue Trader and Dark Heresy that I thought might be useful. I've added a bit of clarification.
