They told me I should write something here, so this is what I had to say.

"Truly! Twas Gimoneus the wise, grand sorcerer of Elantorfan, keeper of the ancient rune of Turgochit, came nearest to slaying the mighty dragon of Ralmorgantorg; for he was old and sinewy, and the wretched beast near choked to death on his femur."

comment How can I get mic-shy players invested in roleplaying over Skype?
I'm not actually sure I think this advice will be helpful, as against consensus as I may be. While speaking in third person may be a part of a helpful paradigm shift, I think this assumes too much about what's actually causing the player(s) to clam up over Skype.

comment What should I do when other players refuse to engage with my character's flaw?
@Shalvenay Honestly, maybe you should flat-out reconsider the character that you're playing. I know it sounds harsh, but it sounds like your character is a troublesome person other players just don't want to play with.

comment How can I hide a chess puzzle in plain sight?
Give the chess board some levels in Rogue, then have it take the Hide In Plain Sight feat? (Sorry, I had to.)

comment How rare are these miniature AD&D books?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about the appraisal of a value of old books, and is not local to role-playing games.

comment How to create a dungeon based on a realistic tomb, but still enjoyable to explore?
The answers to this question are also heavily going to depend on what your players enjoy - if your players are playing archaeologists, then maybe they would enjoy something like this. If they're playing slash & stab characters, they probably wouldn't enjoy a quiet, calm tomb filled with no pop-out surprises. As part of editing this question, I would suggest specifying the target audience of your challenge, as well as the system you intend to be using.

comment How can a DM restore an over-scaled, out of control campaign?
@Zer0ah Working with something that's very closely related to what the players are dealing with, but isn't explicitly what they'll ultimately deal with, is a great way to feed them information about it.
