comment Stopping rule questions from overrunning encounters
This definitely reduces the volume of questions. However, what if the frequency remains the same? And is it fair to restrict players to only asking rules during their own turn? (In an encounter, I feel outside of an encounter is fair play free-for-all in some respects)

comment Stopping rule questions from overrunning encounters
Along with, "can I jump off this person's shoulders and do a round house kick?" They vary wildly. Some complete newbie questions, some asking for clarification about abilities, some asking for rules to be called. I guess I could say "try to do it and find out, stop meta gaming" in some of the cases, but I guess that's not appropriate for everything.

revised How does channel energy work in combat?
Removed "noob town" from the title and made the title more specific to the question.

comment How do I make weather an important part of the game?
@CallanS. The allowance that the opponent's queen is powerful and important is definitely an instance of the social contract. Both players benefit from a game where queens are consistently powerful and important. Therefore, the players decide to obey those rules even when they are disadvantageous. I believe that's a good example of the Social Contract concept, actually. The obvious real world example is law and enforcement.

I appreciate the lesson in etiquette. That sounds very reasonable. Maybe someone disagrees with you!

Okay, so 4e decouples sleep and extended rest. For some reason I was missing that before, that was the missing link for me. Thank you for your great answer.
