comment How should I handle a ruling that really hurts my character?
+1, some of the most fun I've had is when playing 'useless' characters. That said, we've used the 'sneak attack only when victim is unaware' home rule for years without a problem.

comment How would a 7th level wizard defend his shop?
If you're going by prices in the SRD, a basic armed guard should only cost about 3sp per day. So he has more than enough money to keep a dozen over the short term, and enough to hire a few permanent guards.

Google Docs and/or DropBox shared folders would do the trick.

comment Most effective means of dealing with lack of players in AD&D 1e?
I would not automatically rule out 2 characters per player. That lets you have a variety in the group and lets you as a GM kill some off without feeling too guilty...

comment How to force a group to choose a leader?
Honestly, I don't think its your place to 'force' them to pick a leader. You might ask them to pick one person to act as a Caller (the player who tells you what the group's actions are), but forcing them into a hierarchy that they may not want is intruding on their role-playing, imo.

comment Can I roll for a PC in secret?
If you're going to make secret rolls just to keep the players paranoid, its also fun to ask them questions like 'where exactly on you do you carry your gold?' after the roll.

comment How can I send magicians into space?
I forget how SR handles spells, but can you make them cost more or require higher rolls?
