comment Is picking up enemy loot worth it?
+1 for things break: remember that it's a battle - finding useful working loot may be a major task in itself

comment How can I fool my players into being pawns for the villain?
If you've ever watched the TV show Alias then you would pick up the way that the enemy entity operates to look legitimate

comment “Retiring” a maxed-out party
the having old characters act as patrons is something I experienced in a Traveller campaign. It keeps people interested in their old characters too, as these are the people who give their new characters tasks, just as their old characters had tasks to do when they initially started

comment What is thaumaturgy?
of course, Discworld has a definition: One thaum is defined to be the amount of magic which is needed to create a white pigeon or three billiard balls.

comment How would I go about publishing the RPGs I've created?
the Berne Convention gives automatic copyright in (currently) 165 countries (convention takes where the work is created, not what nationality the creator is)

comment How can I make downtime interesting?
there's also things like 'Lord' level - now you have a keep to establish/run - improve lands - expansion will butt against other NPCs and cause friction, or even politically driven marriage

comment Preparing for Very Long Game Sessions
The rules Guinness came up with were 5 minutes of downtime per 1 hour of game play - this time could be accumulated. Also, you had to have a minimum of 4 players, and players could not join, only drop out. (This is what was given to me when Wales Polytechnic had it's record attempt of 100 hours in 1988/9? - I was a referee to make sure rules were upheld)

comment How does damage outside of combat work in Carcosa?
falling damage is 1D, so take off 1D from the creature, rather than a specific number of hit points

comment How many spears can fit in one pincushion
the calculation seems to assume a two handed, or pike. If we use a single handed spear, then the calculation is 2 * pi * 2 / .3 = 41 people - still enough to do a lot of damage
