comment What is a good way to handle a merchant / snake oil salesman PC?
To some extent, yes. If you have an overly generous treasure scale, then PC's end up with so much extra gold they can buy magical items that completely unbalance the game, such as level 5 characters with +5 Plate Mail of undead control, and you have to have massively overpowered encounters to compensate, etc etc.

Thanks for the explanation, I grok now.

Curious - Why is it "proper design" to not allow them to fall in any pits? I would think that would be a legitimate tactic in a fight, maneuvering enemies into natural formations to either trap/kill them.

comment In D&D, A PC became king. How do I keep him in check?
One aside-I'd love to know how you got swindled out of a kingdom.

Also, the Belgariad and Mallorean (David Eddings) both deal with a king that has to go off questing a couple of times, and see his thinly disguised ripoff of his own works, The Elenium and Tamuli series.

comment Middle age transportation by river questions
No, most of them all referenced sea travel. I couldn't find anything on river. I thought there might be some river travel reference in the Smith's journals (Such as landed here, took boats upriver to X), but I haven't had time to read them. The viking ship link did have some references to river travel (I think in the secondary link from it), but nothing specific IIRC.

comment How to transform a tragic hero into a villain?
Yep. All you need is that one little first impetus, and the rest can just build from there.

comment What's the advantage to kicking instead of punching?
@SevenSidedDie - No problem. That's just the only thing that I could find when researching it.
