comment Explaining the need to use Fate Points for Aspects
A good answer, but I'd argue about the first line. It suggests an active capacity to manipulate something like "fate" in the game world, and that's not so. They're storytelling currency, as you later explain, and if you dropped the first line I'd upvote it.

comment How do I find and eliminate plot holes?
Can you give an example of a "plot hole" that she pointed out, and how you changed your game accordingly? I'm wondering why you'd want to close them — a plot hole is a perfect place for the PCs to take action to change the nature of the game.

comment Which rote spell would a Mage detect an Azlu with?
Tough one. The text makes a point of emphasizing how difficult it is to detect Azlu once they've nested inside the head. Detecting the threads of Essence with Supernal Vision might be the best option, but I'll give it another look-see.

comment How do I make best use of my alternate powers in Mutants and Masterminds?
@Pureferret There could be. Why don't you put the power write-up in the question so we can offer suggestions?

Do you mean Venom, the Marvel Comics character, or just different kinds of poisons?

comment How can/should I convince my players to use magic other than Rotes?
In Awakening, you need to have five dots in the relevant Arcanum to create a rote. (Page 291) I don't think this group of PCs is there yet.

@Pureferret Nor an Entropy, for that Matter.

It's your paradigm -- go wild. :)

comment What effects could combine the spheres of Mind and Forces?
Welcome to the site! How many dots does your character have in each of those spheres? Also, in which era is your game set?

comment Metaplot of Vampire: The Masquerade V20
The Onyx Path is a marketing term from White Wolf regarding the creation of new product for the classic WoD setting. I don't think it has much value as a tag.

@Pureferret How's that?

comment Balancing a mixed game in nWoD
@Pureferret Mostly that last one. The Created are going to be magical and physical powerhouses compared to the vampires... but they have massive problems when dealing with humans and have limited access to certain Merits. Emphasize the different arenas where the types are strongest, and you'll have a balanced game.

comment What do I need to change about Call of Cthulhu to set it in the 60s?
@C.Ross I can give it a shot.

comment What do I need to change about Call of Cthulhu to set it in the 60s?
I think it's a fine idea. Only decorum prevents me from contrasting the rise of the Civil Rights Movement with Lovecraft's fairly reprehensible views on race.

comment How can I play dumb?
@WesleyObenshain Erm… no. That usually leads to characters who embody your worst prejudices about people, which aren't fun to play and make the game worse for other people.

comment Scrolls in Mage the Awakening that perhaps even Sleepers may use?
They call them "spells" in Awakening, too.

comment Do these stats cover enough of a person's ability?
I do like the sound of these. (If only there were a one-syllable word that carried the same meaning as "finesse," it would be perfect.)

comment How can I add underworld intrigue to my Dresden Files game?
@Pureferret The world of the Dresden Files is a contemporary urban fantasy — it is, on the surface, a world like our own. However, there are magical and fantastic elements in it, including the fae.

comment What system would best capture the style and feel of TMNT mechanically?
Before I dive in, can you describe what you think of as integral to the TMNT style? Is it important that it be able to handle superhero tropes? Comic book parody? Martial arts? A wide variety of anthropomorphic animals? Which things are most important, and which can be handwaved?

comment Can I default to Swimming?
Not always; sometimes there are lateral paths.
