I’m gonna go ahead and just say “yes” Warhammer 40k is a campaign setting for an RPG. It’s also the setting for a bunch of other things, which means you could reasonably ask about it on SF&F or BCG or Arqade or probably a few other places within Stack Exchange. But the existence of other places where you could ask doesn’t mean you can’t ask here. And ...

We have handled such DIY questions for live action roleplaying, and should continue to do so. We have several questions dealing with this topic, see the props tag. Here are a few examples: How do I safely paint a latex-coated larp weapon? LARP Cannon with actual projectiles Is expanding foam a suitable material for LARP weapon construction? Are ...

This category of question is on topic. Stack Exchange's Q&A doesn't just take the form of question and answer. It also takes the form of problem and solution. This principle is why our topicality help says “You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face.” It's also the principle that allows frame challenges to ...

That seems like a perfectly reasonable content-identification question. Linking to the source material is great, the only addition we'd want to see is that you also include a description in text in case the video goes away (we want the question to still be understandable in such a case) and for the benefit of those who can't watch the video.

Live-play questions are on-topic The line between RPG-content and entertainment is unclear and constantly evolving. It's a new genre and unclear exactly what it is. Anything from from live-play, to performance-art, to entertainment show and a whole spectrum of things in-between. In future we may even have sub-genres for these shows. But all of that is ...

I don't think the flaw is strictly in the question type We don't require questions to have a high mastery of a given system. And I think that extends to asking for an overview of how a system works. That should be something an expert can answer and help with, and I think it's something we can do really well. And I think you've found several – well three, I'm ...

As long as they are tied to the RPG The Warhammer (both Fantasy and 40k) lore is a mess. Many things are spread out among the board/card games, novels, PC games, tabletop army books, and the RPGs. As long as the question asks about the RPG aspect, it is on topic. This might or might not include bits from other than the RPG books as sources, but the question ...

You should not answer off-topic questions Other Stackizens have written about this so I will quote from the top answers of each of the following MSE posts: Should I answer off-topic questions? Is it bad to answer off-topic questions, knowing they are off-topic? Is it bad form to flag a question AND answer it? Should you answer a question you think should be ...

Unaccept the answer and offer the bounty. It isn't rude. It's the site functioning as intended - you've decided there is potential for better answers, so unaccepting the current answer "opens up" the question again, so to speak. On top of that, adding a bounty both encourages new answers and gives 1600hp, who is still an active user according to ...

You should not answer off-topic questions. However, ... Reasonable people can disagree about whether a particular question is on or off-topic. If you think it's on topic, you should answer it even if others disagree.

The question asks about what I can only describe as the showmanship aspect of the production. No matter if it is scripted, directed, prompted, improvised or entirely free-formed: The showmanship and representation of the character/player on the screen is to some degree acting and the choice to keep it and not cut it away post-production. The only people that ...

Your first sentence: As part of the financially incredibly successful Avatar Legends: The Roleplaying Game Kickstarter, Magpie Games released a Quickstart, available for free after sign-up in the mailing list. made me feel like you were more interested in promoting a product than in getting an answer to a real question you had. You added extra text to your ...

It's on-topic, but ... While system-introduction is something that we cover here at RPG.SE, the question itself doesn't seem like the type to generate good quality content. If you look at the other questions that you linked, you can see that each of them explains why they need the system introduction and provide more context for answers to go off of. ...

Questions should generally present a problem that isn’t solvable by just reading the rules. Your question needs to make it clear why just reading the rules doesn’t solve your problem. This is essentially the first point of the help article on how to ask a good question: Have you thoroughly searched for an answer before asking your question? Sharing your ...

Let me start by trying to boil down the issue with (primarily) opinion based questions: The answers to such questions can't be properly evaluated on their quality. That means (opposing) answers will be (up)voted for their popularity instead. We have some means of identifying quality, most relevant here is being supported by experience based expertise (aka ...

The initial question is definitely a designer intent question - the OP wanted to know WHY the magic item was described as turning the user into one kind of bear, but directing them to use the stats of another bear. Simply put, why questions are not allowed. This WHY question solicited a BECAUSE answer - because you need to reference one bear's stats to look ...
