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 Can a PC “loot” a dead monster's corpse?
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.

comment How should GM deal with 'standing orders'?
The king finally garants you the audience you asked for. You enter the throne room. The whole court is assembled and awaits to hear what you have to say about the impeding undead invasion. As you always do, you immediately start to closely examine the walls of the throne room, look behind all furniture and under all carpets searching for hidden doors. The king looks confused. The princess giggles "what a weird guy". The captain of the honor guard asks you what you are doing. Your response?

comment Creating the setting with the players
Asking the player for detail clarifications might reveal spoilers. "You see a person hiding their face under a black cloak" - "I use detect evil" - "which alignment did you want sir X of Y to have again?"
