comment Is there a searchable index for WotC images published in Dragon/Dungeon magazine?
With the move from minatures to tokens, it would be very useful to find a specific image for making home made tokens with photoshop.

comment Does a creature lose invisibility after being hit?
Does this mean an invisible creature must still make a Stealth check to become 'hidden'?

comment Does cover also grant concealment?
The PC has the Hidden Sniper feat. Benefit: If you have partial concealment against a target, you gain combat advantage against it with your ranged attacks. I'm trying to remember what is requiring the stealth check.

comment How can I encourage my D&D Encounters group to do more role playing?
WOTC has already set up a system for earning Renown points and the prizes for hitting certain levels. Same with the XP. A DM could award extra XP but the scenario dictates exactly when a PC can increase in level.

I can see how this would work within an on-going home game. The challenge in using this approach within the structure of D&D Encounters is the changing nature of the party/players. At my store, every week presents a slightly different mix of party member and PC's.

comment What happened to scrolls in 4e?
I've been wrestling with the mechanics of how scrolls with a power source other than arcane come into existence. For example, if someone wanted to create a scroll that had an effect with a martial power source, would that be created by a wizard type with access to martial power or do you just abstract away the power source when creating a scroll? I wouldn't necessarily need a way for PC's to create their own scrolls but I would like something that makes sense to explain how they exist.

comment Is there any popular contemporary “classic” D&D material?
@mxyzpik - I'm not knowledgeable in rpg history. Can you explain the difference between BECMI and 0e?

An excellent tip which I should have remembered from my days as a trainer - ask a question of the students and just wait for a response. People get uncomfortable with silence and will naturally respond.

I liked this answer because it does give some options and suggestions. Even if Encounters isn't designed for heavy role play, I think we do ourselves and new players a disservice to dismiss it altogether and not even try to sprinkle a little bit in here and there.

Could some of the feats be re-skinned into one shot scrolls and used in combat? I think that would be interesting and flavorful.

I have approached the store to see if they would allow me to start an 'unofficial' Encounters type group and the owner was supportive. I now need to find enough folks commit to it. It's a challenge to get folks to come out on a week night. Most of the players I've approached prefer playing on the weekend. I'll definitely check out the Back Room to see how that works.
