I'm mostly on RPG.stackexchange.com, but also check Sci-Fi/Fantasy and Stackoverflow. I'm currently GMing and/or playing OD&D, AD&D 2e and Stars Without Number campaigns. I use C# (in Unity3d) and Python when writing code.

comment Channelling Spells Through Implanted Ioun Stones
+1 for the most likely answer, but consider adding more information about other RPGs (especially D&D, which PF is based on) that have this too.

comment What simple and rules-light system can be used to play WH40k?
When you say light, how light do you mean? Less than 200 pages? Less than 50? Less than 10?

comment Is there a list of RPG jargon words?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is asking for a list. We don't tend to handle lists well as a site, so you'd probably be better off asking this in a forum.

comment How to handle player knowledge when they fumble a knowledge roll
This looks like it could be a really good answer if you were to, at the bottom of your post, indicate how you would apply it to the OP's problem. Other than that, welcome to the site and if you have questions about how it works check out or FAQ. Once you have 20+ rep, you can also come join us in chat.

comment Is there an official rule set for for unstable magic in 3.5 edition?
I'm not an expert when it comes to 3.5e, but someone else may know whether there's an equivalent for 2e's Wild Magic.

@Kahler I've edited your answer to bring out more information I think you included but didn't emphasize. If you don't like part or all of it, or think it changes your answer too much, feel free to revert it.

comment Is there a layer of the Abyss that is controlled by celestials?
@Dane That is correct; as Draupadi states, they are Chaotic Evil but in denial about it.

comment House rules for making specific components matter for spells, magical and mundane item creation?
@DM911 All magical items made by players in D&D 3.x via RAW need a base Masterwork item that is made into a magic item via certain feats, depending on the item type made. The plus bonus has nothing to do with the base item quality. Sadly, imo, 3.x moved away from Magic Items being unique and special, and they became an expected power amplifier for parties of a certain level and thus subject to a whole host of rules as to what they could and couldn't do, and how much it would cost to make a certain item or add a certain effect.

comment Keeping track of time in AD&D 1e
@ComradeYakov During combat, I announce each new round. Otherwise, I wait until the group lets me know what action they're taking (like 'Walk down the hallway' or 'Check for traps') then tell them how long it takes, and move the counters.

comment How much are the players supposed to know?
@ComradeYakov Whoops, I think this might have been a houserule I'm so used to I forgot it wasn't in the official rules. The first game of AD&D I played in the DM would get everyone to roll initiative before we decided our actions. He also rolled individual initiative for each player and monster in the smaller skirmishes. I'm not sure either of those are in the PHB or DMG.

comment Keeping track of time in AD&D 1e
@ComradeYakov Yes, they can see them (unless they fall unconscious or are magically affected so they don't notice how much time has passed). Then I note down how much time had already passed and reset the counters to start from when they wake up.

comment How to get players to survive this particular battle?
The best weapon is information. If they know what they're up against, they can use creative solutions.

comment What published resources give good examples of Adventure Fronts?
Good answer, but could you describe the contents of your link a little? The web being what it is, links decay over time, so it's always better to have some information in the answer rather than just a link to a resource.

Although to be fair, the question itself is pretty poor
