comment How can you use isometric maps (or other tricks for addressing 3 dimensions) for miniatures?
@Hand-E-Food I've done that too. It takes more planning, but can be worth it. Had a good time ripping a capsizing ship in half once.

comment Too many divergent side quests. What do I do?
I'd like to add to this answer. When you bind sidequests together it can look like a tangled web of too many coincidences that no sane person would find plausible. This is true, from your bird's eye view that sees all the links and connections. The players' POV is different. They see the coincidences one at a time, as you reveal them. That the rogue and fighter shared the same mentor, whose death must be avenged will be the big reveal for a single session. They digest that and then get more next week. Furthermore, the players won't realize all the coincidences you create. tl;dr Go nuts!
