comment Do any newer D&D versions grant experience for exceptional role-playing?
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.

comment How to handle a rules-lawyer player?
Excellent answer. Embellishing monsters will really throw him off his game. When he sees the orcs have red skin he might call you on it. When said orc blows fire in his face he'll start to get the picture.
