comment How do you help your GM/fellow PCs track buffs/debuffs?
@mxyzplk that hasn't been my experience. Players mostly remember their buffs. If the buffer had to make more than one reminder between his turns, that's unusual. Maybe I'm used to more attentive players or less aggressive buffers than you?

comment How do you help your GM/fellow PCs track buffs/debuffs?
I love this method, especially as a buffing character. It gives me something to do when it's not my turn and it lets me feel smug when my +2 made the difference.

comment Clarification on 4e Raise Dead's 'part of the corpse'
@archwillow. If the players confronted me with these shenanigans, that's probably how I'd react. In this case I was running an npc who was avoiding death. I might have sabotaged my own plot with this interpretation. It might have been workable but that games been over for a year and half.
