comment How can I keep track of Aspects and Powers?
@BESW: I have some reassuring words on that subject, but we should take this to chat, because it's no longer a direct answer to the question.

comment How can I keep track of Aspects and Powers?
Understood, @SevenSidedDie, but I'm standing by the answer as is. My experience of running Dresden is that it's just not that difficult to remember most Aspects during play, since most are created and then tagged immediately. A couple of index cards is quite sufficient to track the long-term ones. NPC aspects should already be in your adventure notes; created ones are usually short-term, so I just put out a card with the ones they've found by Assessment.

comment Where does the stereotype that wizards can't wear armor come from?
+1 for a thorough answer. I'd contest the description of Gandalf, though - while it's true that "his power was in other things than physical combat", he's also an effective swordsman, especially during The Hobbit. The gist of your answer is correct, though, as he's not an armoured warrior.

comment Is that blackguard riding a dragon? Nope, but their pony sure looks evil
In the last D&D campaign I was in the Paladin rode a Pegasus. Since the plot involved a war, the value of her aerial scouting was enormous, besides the sheer cool factor. The GM imposed a limit - the Paladin had to wait enough extra levels for her mount to account for the ECL difference between horse and pegasus - and I strongly recommend a similar rule for any group.

comment Are there any stat-boosting backgrounds?
Hello Vi; welcome to the site. It might help if you edit the question to describe the character you want to play and explain why they need more Con; that way, even if there isn't a feat that does what you wanted, someone might suggest another way to make that character work.

comment Tips on playing a character whose goals run contrary to his outward actions (to the other PCs)
Also take a look at this question on in-party intrigue. It's from a GM point of view, but it's the same problem: how to have two different sets of goals in one party.

+1 because I decided not to answer when I realised this already said almost everything I meant to.

comment Would flying monsters ever land during combat?
@Dakeyras has it. The predator a dragon is worried about defending its treasure from is a bigger dragon. Leaving your hoard out in the open is like leaving your wallet in the street.

comment How do significantly differing male and female lifespans change my setting?
A good answer. You should also consider the reverse of the first paragraph: Males are frequently adventurers (as they're both young and risking comparatively little), whereas the females are more risk-averse - they've got centuries of lifespan to protect and reasons to take the long view.

comment Tying someone up in 4E
@waxeagle: On serious thought, you're right. Having any chance at passing that check ought to involve massive level advantage, martial arts superiority, or the like. (In earlier editions, of course, it would be even harder than that. The attacker would need to understand the Grapple rules.)

comment Tying someone up in 4E
Good answer, and I have to agree. Binding someone who's fighting back should be good for a -10 penalty on the check, even if they're not a better wrestler than you.
