comment Festival Mini Games
@mawimawi Don't know. I added back the tag since I did mention it can be for any system. Leaving dnd-4e cause I did ask for some specific to that originally.

Not to mention that players LOVE to get in with a GM's plan.

comment Is it fair to make all Encounter/Daily powers Reliable in D&D 4e?
I also had a similar discussion with a friend with the same reasoning as you stated. Another one that works for "why do encounters only work once per fight?" is that people tend to think their enemy is stupid. Quite the contrary, I'd say your enemies are smart enough to know when you're pulling a fancy move and won't open up for such a devastating attack again that fight. Hence, one per fight but works for other fights cause the new foe hasn't seen your technique yet. The reasoning doesn't quite work for dailies but you can use the reasoning you mentioned at that point too.

comment Which systems can emulate battles against zombie hordes?
Do battle with Zombie Dice! (sjgames.com/dice/zombiedice). Oh okay I guess that doesn't quite work >.>

comment Is there a feat for melee characters equivalent to Dual Implement Spellcaster in D&D 4e?
Two wands? That is pretty pimp. penny-arcade.com/comic/2006/5/19 Or perhaps you're forgetting one thing. Make that three things. penny-arcade.com/comic/2009/1/26

comment As a GM, how does one deal with all of the players playing nearly identical characters?
+1 I believe this advice can be applied to any setting/genre/game.

comment What is a good pdf/excel/app to use to create a computerized character sheet and power cards without the DDI (Dnd Essentials)
The last link you have to dnd4.com I think has an editable pdf of the official character sheet near the bottom of the "Character Sheet" page.

comment Will magic items with raw stats break game balance in DnD4e?
I think such changes would have such a vast change on the mechanics of not only the core rules but almost every class in general, especially if you go for the stat increases that WoW normally holds even at low levels, that I'd probably advise against it. I'd try to look for another game that fits the bill then try and adapt D&D for this use. Then again, if you can get it to work then by all means go for it! It just sounds like an intimidating rules change.

comment Group-wise Combinable Magic Items (each member owns 1)
Fun idea! While 3.5 specific, I'd be interested to see the answers and find possible ways to have them in other versions or games.

comment Inventory: How can you carry adequate equipment without bringing a caravan?
@SevenSidedDie While it is a non-modern setting, I'm also assuming it's a fantasy setting which while I don't expect "Gore-Tex and rip-stop nylon" I am expecting "Elven chainmail +3" and "sunrods" or something similar which would not be heavy =P @user1637 Ah okay, I am unfamiliar with GURPS weight and lifting. I usually assume D&D or it's style of weight management which tends to give a lot of weight lifting to a character

comment How to run a chess inspired D&D4E encounter?
I'll have to take a look into that! Though I was hoping to not have to spend money going looking for something. Not to dismiss the Red Box or anything, definitely heard good things about it.

comment How to run a chess inspired D&D4E encounter?
I like the unique bonuses for being each piece! I'd love to bring out a real chess board but I'm playing this game online so can't sadly. Still, gonna make the map look as much like a real chess board with chess pieces to simulate as best I can!

@Rent_ZHB That could also be done! Might be quicker but perhaps not as much exp for it.

comment How to run a chess inspired D&D4E encounter?
Hmmm curious, how should a "mini-combat" go? I like the idea but having just a monster and a PC duel it out might take too long and bore the other players (or they might find it exciting, I don't know!). Maybe restrict their HP to a certain amount to speed up the duel? If they lost they could just reenter the board or maybe they just lose a healing surge and return at full HP.

@Lo'oris Hehe, yeah that was essentially the idea I was going for =) Was trying to think of different encounters that I thought were fun in video games & the Karazhan chess fight I thought was different & fun! Or as we used to call it "Free loot" encounter XD

comment Biggest GM pitfalls for new GMs?
Don't be too scared if the players come up with something totally different then what you planned. Sometimes this can turn out to be something really awesome and fun! Play along with them and sometimes they can come up with something that probably was a better idea and they feel acomplished for working out such plans!
