comment Dice roll methods and their averages
Start big. For example give everyone their tier level as bonus on every attribute. Once you end up with a party of monks, you know you have to scale back a bit. The power of swarm intelligence :)

comment How to play a published adventure solo?
You may want to add some introductory comments. I for one have no clue what "Mythic" may be. Did you miss a tag in the question?

comment Explosive rounds in Pathfinder
@HeyICanChan I guess Pathfinder uses the common definition of direct versus indirect fire. Direct fire is an attack you fire in a straight line at a point you can see. There it may explode for an area attack or not. Like an RPG (rocket-propelled grenade). Indirect fire is an attack that you fire in an arc to a point you do not necessarily observe yourself. Like a mortar. While direct or indirect implicate angle of attack, it does not say anything about what happens at the point of impact.

comment How to challenge epic level characters?
@ObliviousSage You may have noticed I said except 4e. If there were a tag called "all editions but 4e" I'd happily use it.

comment How to challenge epic level characters?
@ObliviousSage Every edition I mentioned had the Wish spell, probably the ultimate utility. I don't think I'd gain anything from tagging it with a special edition because then I will get a very narrow, focussed answer and I'm looking for a broader concept. I'm not looking for a single way to disable a players power, but instead a way to incorporate their powers into the story while actually keeping it interesting and believable. Would you actually have an answer that would work for 3.5 but not for the other editions mentioned?

@JoshuaAslanSmith What would that requirement be? I don't have any requirement. I can narrow it down as much as you like, but that will only result in answers that will not be usable for me because they are way to specific. Can you give an example of a requirement I may have missed?

comment How to challenge epic level characters?
I'm not looking for an encounter. I'm looking for an adventure idea. A problem to solve, that is resistant to wishes. I'm not interested in details like "page 112 of splat book 5 says this door is wish-resistant", but a much broader view. If that makes people happy I can add a 3.5 tag, but everything that only works for 3.5 is not really what I'm looking for.

comment How can I hide a chess puzzle in plain sight?
Whatever you do, make sure all your players speak the language your hints are using. For example, in Germany, Knight and Bishop are called "Springer" (Jumper) and "Läufer" (Runner). Any references to knighthood or the church would surely be lost on Germans.

Can you add some information about the percentages? How did you get those numbers?

@DougM I don't get what you are trying to say. My answer is what I posted above. I think it's a terrible idea for my groups and what you make of it... is your decision.
