comment How to tell your players about the setting without make them read?
Hi, You may want to check Introducing an unorthodox setting the players know NOTHING about, Helping new players learn a setting on the go, and Techniques for communicating setting and campaign information to the PCs? They seem to cover quite similar ground to your question.

comment Betrayed by my GM; how can I respond?
@mxyzplk Yes, you're right, unfortunately - hence my warning, etc. Yet it might (and does) work in a few cases, so it's worth considering.

comment Save against a spell thought to be harmless
These rules are mostly legacy: they were rather similar in 3.5, also without much (if any) in-world explanation, as far as I can remember. However, I'm sure a creative DM - for whom such concerns really matter - can easily weave a more fully detailed and believable background / experience / explanation around this. (See @SevenSidedDie's comment, above.) Also, those groups that find this solution inconvenient are obviously free to alter the flow to suit their needs. Nonetheless, this is how I think the RAW works.

comment Save against a spell thought to be harmless
@mxyzplk Yes, if you go for this interpretation of the RAW once, it's only fair if you stick with it, and get to wait to see if you roll good. Afaik the witch's healing hex works like a Cure Light Wounds spell, so imo resisting would only halve the gained hit points, ie. you'd benefit from the hex, and not be allowed a retry. I don't see the legion you're talking about - but even if there are some, consequent application would balance things out in the long run. (Also, no game system is perfect, and no system's been documented perfectly. Otherwise we'd have way fewer questions around here. ;))
