2. What's the difference between a Szuriel worshiper massacring everybody, and a Rovagug worshiper doing the same?
3. What skills as a fiction writer would hurt me as an adventure writer?
1) I would think that I'd rather not be that person's friend.
2) One is neutral evil, the other is chaotic evil.
3) Two that come to mind: Forcing the story to come to the predetermined end you as the author prefer, and not having a main character to write about (since the "main characters" of an adventure are the PCs, and are thus pretty much the one part of the story an adventure writer can't assume anything about). A LOT of the adventures for 2nd edition D&D fell victim to these errors, when the authors were more interested in the story than the way the players interact with the story.
