Have you ever run a scenario where the characters were at high risk of catching a deadly infectious disease, and how did that play out ?

Have you ever run a scenario where the violence, if any, was mostly verbal, and there were no weapons of any kind ?

To what extent do you make a conscious decision to follow, or not, the Wunderkammer-Gesamtkunstwerk Model when you create an RPG scenario ?

Do you think you could ever have too many dice and why is the answer "no?"

The Leftovers is one of the most original tv series I have seen in quite a long while. It forces you to think a lot about the truly important and meaningful things in your own life.

Highly recommended.

Have you incorporated real world religions into a fictional setting?

Have you played a non humanoid character? What were the complications?

If you are sick and possibly infectious, but not feeling all that bad, do you still go to the game / host the game?

What was the largest number of characters you went through in a campaign?

Are you a minimalist as far as what your character carries around, or a pack mule that tries to have something for every occasion? 1-10 scale?

Only when Hegelian analysis has failed to provide us with a proper weltanschauung of our monad.

Traduction - where we have no idea where we are, what we are doing, and where we are going in-adventure. So, most of the time.

Have you ever run any scenarios inspired by the movies of M. Night Shyamalan ?

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Out of respect to those who haven't seen some of his good movies, a spoiler alert should prominently be placed in the OP in case this question is ever chosen for QOTD.

For those who know nothing of his work:

"The Sixth Sense" is a truly amazing must-see movie. Top Of The Class. One of the very best movies of that decade.

"Unbreakable" is very good.

"The Village" is good.

What has been your favorite taunt you have seen from Cthanta? What has been your favorite task that you have seen requested by Cthanta?

The question is phrased so that both participants and non-participants in the RPG Geek Secret Cthanta Gift Exchange can answer.

How do you try to get folks to try an RPG other than D&D and its clones?

On a 1-10 scale, with 10 being the most powerful, how would you rate the encounter/event/adventure generation system in your game and what is the basis for that rating? How does it enhance the experience for your players and could anything be done to improve it?

Sorry if this has already been asked.

If you are going play test an adventure you wrote at a convention do you let the players know it's a play test ahead of time or before you start? Why or why not?

When I retired, I decided to explore the Seven Deadly Sins. Perhaps I shouldn't have started with Sloth. It's been four years and that's as far as I've gotten.

just saying, this question as it is written now, may well cause confusion between system, setting, and game. Maybe rephrase it a bit?
