comment How long would take for a brilliant person to decypher/crack an alien language and how to use its technology?
For comparison, the translation of Linear B (a human language, not an alien one) took around 35 years, and it turned out that it was actually an already understood language - Greek.

comment Is there a standard way of calculating XP when the characters are in no immediate danger?
+1 for "In general, the advice is to give players full experience points for cleverness." The GM should generally be rewarding players for their cleverness.

comment Dealing with Argumentative Players
I'm tempted to put "if <player> thinks <gm> is wrong they should accept your ruling for the moment and look it up while the next action is being processed" on the player side of my GM screen. I think this behaviour is one of the cornerstones of good play.

There have been several questions here about buying minis. For example, (rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/2017/…).

comment How to DM mind control effects without angering my friends?
There's a phrase that I've seen a couple of times on this site that is appropriate here. The GM should "conspire with the Players against their Characters."

comment How do I handle a group that does not understand the 'assumption rule'?
I'm with Lohoris on this. My response to the situation would be to simply ignore the players, continue to look at the GM and ask "Craig, what's the resolution?". There's only one person at the table who determines action resolution — the DM (as per Angry Rants: The RAW).

comment How do I read a 4-sided die?
+1. A picture is worth a thousand words. Another +1, if I could, for including both types of d4.
