comment Survivalist NPC build?
-1 "give him an artifact you came up with" is not an answer, it's basically DM fiat.

too many CAPS. Converted them all to **bolds**.

comment Handling plagiarism as a TA
Letting this pass will teach them the horrible lesson that they are free to just "not give a fuck" to multiple clear as crystal warnings. You are not to punish the plagiarization itself, you have to punish the arrogance.

comment How to get the most out of an encounter by combining foes
Think about raid boss fights in mmorpgs: challenging encounters with complex specific rules. The difference here is that those rules have to be learned during the fight (so they should be much more mistake-tolerant, of course).

comment Do any newer D&D versions grant experience for exceptional role-playing?
Look at how the old world of darkness handled it, it might give you some useful insight!

comment How to encourage a player's creativity without breaking the game?
Out of curiosity, with "1e" you mean the actual first D&D (pre-advanced, I love it), or the first advanced edition?

comment How to help a player to roleplay the character he created?
- OR - he'll kill find a way to "accidentally" kill Vincent, and when his sister tells him he's a monster, he possibly kills her too. Sometimes a player just want to play his way, and no amount of neither strong nor soft persuasions will work. I'm not saying in this case it won't work, just not to be too optimistic about that. The real solution would have been to give to that player a non-key character, so that he can play as he wishes without risking ruining the campaign. Well, actually, the real solution would have been not having key characters and non-flexible story in the first place.

comment How could it happen that Ukraine soldiers did not try to defend against the invasion?
The other points make sense, but point 2 is too partisan to be acceptable without strong references.

comment When is legalization a better alternative?
@Shahar and that's fine. As long as you only damage yourself, your loss. If you damage other people things, it's already a crime anyway. The only real issue with drugs is where you have public healthcare, so basically you would waste taxpayer money if you become addict.

@SevenSidedDie they GM can setup the campaign as he sees fit, but as long as some of the players plainly disagree, he can't expect it to magically work anyway... either the players adapt, or the campaign has to (or it will fail).

@SevenSidedDie yes, but he went on with the campaign as-it-was, ignoring that strong and explicit signal from one of the key players :(

comment How to handle player knowledge when they fumble a knowledge roll
Furthermore, sure, it's easy to say "keep your knowledge away from your character", but it's not easy and it's not fun: whenever possible it's much better to sincerly not know better.

comment How to handle player knowledge when they fumble a knowledge roll
Or... just roll yourself and hide the roll. There's absolutely no point in letting the player roll, if he doesn't know how to interpret the outcome.

comment How to help a player to roleplay the character he created?
I've read it. I'd say you've got a huge problem: you fine-crafted your campaign around some specific characters, and forced those characters into unwilling players. This would have been a problem anyway, since does not allow playersto leave without ruining the story, and also poses a barrier for new players/characters to come, since they would likely not be as entangled with the story as the original ones. I'm not sure how could I help you. This is an ok mistake considering you are still quite new both as GM and in RPGs in general. Good luck, and please keep us updated!
