comment How is treasure determined randomly for CR 21 or higher creatures?
@MikeR, your last comment has a more "generic" approach than your answer. I.e. it clearly states guidelines and could easily be mixed-and-matched with the Magic item compendium; which is what I believe the OP wants. Maybe you could complement your answer with your comment?

comment Can you make items with a “misc” or “unnamed” bonus to an ability score?
@Dave, good to know. Perhaps you should consider adding that bit to your answer.

comment Can you make items with a “misc” or “unnamed” bonus to an ability score?
Interesting.. "[...]there is a specific list of unusual bonus types, rather than completely untyped". Are these written somewhere in official material? Or are you just saying not to literally use "misc" and "unamed"?

comment How much are the players supposed to know?
On AC... I let them roll attacks and keep track of what hit and what didn't; after a couple of rolls, they figure it out. From what is already known, we all just say it out loud (out of character). Something like: "That guard has AC between 3 and -1, so I'll attack the other one first". Or if they ask me, I'll remind them that their lowest roll that hit was X.

Changed "fairness" to "balance" (not a moral issue, but a game issue)

Turns out our brain can't really handle 300 relations anyway.

comment How do I force a party from the Astral Plane?
I for one, would love to see how players handle the encounter if their toughest fighter is dismissed on round 1.

comment Can I roll for a PC in secret?
@Roger: perhaps that's an answer in itself? Also, in my experience, players like to roll dice (I know I do)... having them to roll randomly and rolling yourself randomly sounds like sound advice for the OP.

comment How many epic spell seeds can you know?
I understood it the same way. Seeds are mostly a way of letting the DM figure out how to set the DC, reach, and limitations of an Epic spell.
