At day I work as an ABAP developer in civil service.

At night I am developing a web-based MMORPG using HTML5 Javascript for the client, Java for the server and MongoDB as database backend. You can follow my progress on my development blog.

comment How can I roleplay my evil character properly?
@Discipol Who says that an evil character wouldn't warn people that when they don't cooperate they will get hurt? Getting people to do what you say with the mere threat of violence saves time, doesn't leave evidence and is definitely evil.

comment How can I roleplay my evil character properly?
@Discipol Your original question was about how to play an evil character. I think you are now drifting into the "lawful vs. chaotic" issue which is an entirely different beast. Also, didn't you say you play without alignments?

@Discipol Regarding Intimidation and Bluff: Just because the rules say paladins can use them doesn't mean that it is always in-character for them. They might not be willing to threaten an old, unarmed man, but you are. Also, when the target knows that the paladin is known for never harming an innocent and that you have a reputation for being a ruthless monster, the paladin should have a much higher CR than you when using intimidation. Also, when you threat with torture, you can argument that you don't need to roll a bluff check, because you aren't bluffing.

So in corollary the player characters shouldn't actively try to make money, because the DM is responsible for making sure they are always as rich or poor as the level requires?

comment Is there a fantasy RPG system which does not try to be old-school?
Keep in mind that " honors old school values" is often marketing speech to calm the "they changed it, now it sucks" crowd.

comment To what extent is reskinning acceptable?
@StephenCoffey What's a common vulnerability/resistance is highly dependent on the scenario. An experienced game master should be able to choose their encounters in a way which balances the usefulness of the parties elemental damage abilities.

comment Are familiars always present?
Blackwing appearing and disappearing in OOTS is a reference to the tendency of DnD groups (DMs and players alike) to forget that one player character has a familiar with them unless the player gets the idea that they need it, leading to paradox situations and plotholes.

comment In D&D, A PC became king. How do I keep him in check?
An interesting option would be a disaster which completely obliterates the kingdom. A disaster which didn't seem to be entirely natural. This would be a great plothook for an adventure about finding out who is responsible and taking revenge. But again, this should be planned with the player.
