comment Out-Of-Control Characters
@Baelnorn, I meant the mob boss would be too low in scope, not the technique. I wasn't quite thinking of Orcus or Vecna yet, but they would definitely work perfectly at a higher tier.

comment Can D&D Fourth Edition be played effectively in a non-gamist manner?
@mxyzplk, I haven't tried intentionally fudging 4e. I decided to run this campaign by the book just because I hadn't done that before. It had nothing to do with the system. I see no reason why fudging 4e wouldn't work though.

comment How do you help players not focus on the rules?
@ExTSR, yes I clearly say exactly that. It's a turnoff for some players and I don't miss them. They probably wouldn't like my style of game anyway.
