comment Is anyone playing Mazes & Minotaurs?
I just thought I'd note that yes, it is played. I've been running an M&M game for just over a year now. It didn't seem to warrant an answer.

comment What systems, if any, could emulate an MMORPG or CRPG?
I actually run a 4E game. :) I meant to specifically exclude 4E, as I did when I tweeted about this question, but I forgot. Oops! My primary objection is that 4E is, in my opinion, far too complex (too many enumerated options per unit per round), and combats rounds take much too long. I also don't think the difference in power level between levels 1 and 30 is great enough for what I was hoping for. Also, I was hoping to avoid any bad feelings from such comparisons. :-) Still, your answer fits my question! Thanks.

It's a year later and I'd really love to see a comment on how your choice went. I have been pondering exactly this scenario myself!

comment How can I improve one-off play with paragon or epic tier characters?
I created the characters in question. Although it would be nice to have the players do it on their own, creating high-level 4E characters takes an age. :(

Can you explain what you mean by your #2 suggestion?

comment How does damage outside of combat work in Carcosa?
It does seem like a straightforward way to do things, but it makes it extremely difficult, that way, to nickel-and-dime somebody out of his or her hit points. (This may be intentional.) It also seems like it would add a lot of overhead to otherwise very simple dice transactions. (This seems unlikely to be intentional, but Carcosa sure does love dice…)
