comment Should I scale the difficulty after the party recruits a boss?
@Lohoris, I disagree. The players get the benefit of a powerful ally, but that benefit doesn't last forever. In fact, few benefits in 4e truly last forever (your +2 sword might not go away, but the benefit of +2 isn't good enough in a few levels), and the whole reward structure of Boons is actually removed from the character after several levels. This is probably familiar to people who play a lot of video games, too: It's common to give the player a special weapon, ally, or item that's extra powerful, but it's only available on this mission or it goes away after this long.

comment How do you improve Death Saves for the character?
@DCShannon, Actually according to the compendium Verve Armor still gives +2 untyped bonus to death saves. However when I first wrote this answer I read Elemental Guardian as increasing the racial bonus by 2, instead of increasing it to 2. Those changes reduce "save vs. all" by 1 and increase "save vs. death" by 2 for a net gain of 1 on death saves, letting you stand back up on a 2, not a 1.

comment Is there any support in D&D for Were-humans?
"were" means "man" (in the sense of "human", not "male"), so "were-human" is either redundant, or a doppelganger. :)

comment Where can I find other RPG players?
With the introduction of community-designed character sheets for Roll20, Myth-Weavers character sheets are largely unnecessary for a Roll20 campaign. As of January 15, 2015, there are 95 systems represented, and if the GM has a Mentor subscription they can create a "custom" sheet using HTML+CSS. If you don't mind ugly HTML and a ton of inline CSS, there's even a generator for custom sheets.

comment How do I map a 15' cone to a 1" grid?
"this has been an issue for 3.5, Pathfinder, and 4e" -- Not 4e. 4e is very explicit about using squares for everything (well, everything except walls).

Isn't the death of a PC in Scion just an excuse to take an adventure in the underworld? :)

comment Can a character with Ghost of the Rooftops climb like Spider-Man?
I wouldn't say the character's Athletics bonus matters for determining the difficulty of the climb (that's the point of the power), but using the climbing DC to determine difficulty certainly makes sense.

comment How to get a new group into the spirit of the game Paranoia?
My GM found a website which used text-to-speech to generate MP3 files, and prepared clips of The Computer talking to us. Was a lot of fun.

comment Can I make repeated active insight checks, or can I “take 20” on insight checks?
In general, I would not allow repeated active Insight checks. Note that the rules for an Insight check say "Failure: The creature can't try again until circumstances change."

IANAL, so I'm not going to try and argue about what is and is not legally Fair Use; it would only be speculation. You're welcome to edit it if you feel the quote needs to be cut down. However, I do not have a page reference, as my PDFs are not currently available to me, which is why I went with a DDI link instead.
