comment How do I manage created content in D&D Character Builder
I've used that to add powers to my characters from another class, but how does it work for custom feats? I'm assuming they don't have an api or scripting support that allows you to actually make your custom feat add a bonus to your attack powers or anything like that.

+1 if for nothing other than the price.

If they fight for more than a couple minutes, then make it cursed, just to teach them.

I can't take full credit for this idea. I got it from someone on Johnn Four's gmmastery mailing list 5-6 years ago.

I really like this answer. Less experienced players may be looking for something more tangible (like XP) as an immediate reward. Hopefully after a few times they'll catch on. Just don't over-use it or they'll be disappointed when that old lady is just an old lady. You also have to be an organized GM to remember previous good RP experiences to bring up later, and be able to do a good share of on-the-fly GM-ing.
