@Ellesedil The correct suggestion. First, many people believe there shouldn't be a "correct suggestion". Second, many of those who believe in a "correct suggestion" think that it's the job of the players to find it out.

@NeilSlater The GMPC knowledge and the PC dependence on him is another common problem of GMPCs. So, I don't think the title has nothing misleading on itself.

@Falco Don't make the GMPC this way.

comment What can I do to paper to make it look aged?
The results are astonishing. Can I suggest you expand your answer to detail a little more the method? An answer should stand by itself, although provided links can expand on the subject.

comment Should I do something about slow pace in my inexperienced group?
We, experienced RPG players but novice to Deathwatch, spent more than 90 minutes in creating the characters. One thing people do to avoid eating game time is to meet one day to create the characters and then another activity (a walk, videogames, whatever) and another day to start the adventure playing from minute 0.

comment Is it appropriate to tell players the expected outcome of a throw?
@corsiKa, well I was soft when I said I'm uncomfortable with it. To be clearer, I'm against it. I don't use as a GM and I feel cheated when I suspect the GM is doing it. I think it hurts the trust between players. I'm good with no rolling, or with coming up with an interesting failure. But if you are not ready to not admit the result of a roll, don't roll.

@wraith808 andk Kyle Willie, those examples sound good to me, as well as the make the failure interesting covered in the answer. It's the fudging what I'm not comfortable with.

I disagree on cheating. If you are ignoring the result from the roll, don't roll just to hear the noise of the dice. If you fudge the roll, then it is indeed redundant.

comment Can vampires enter Umbra?
V20 pg 138-139: Although an astrally projected character remains in the reflection of the mortal world, she may venture further into the spirit realms, especially if she becomes lost. Other beings with particular sensitivity to psychic activity, such as ghosts, werewolves, and even some magi, travel the astral plane as well, and can interact with a vampire’s psychic presence normally
