comment How do I create a good fighter character that is focused on damage output?
@cman Hi and welcome to RPG.SE! unfortunately, even those requirements are not sufficient for us to give you a good answer to your question. We need to know a lot more about what you know about Pathfinder and what you want your character to do. It would be helpful if you could tell us what you've already read, so people who answer know what level to put the information at. If you haven't read anything you might want to make a start at that before you ask here. If you're having trouble figuring out where to start reading, your friends might be able to help.

comment What happens to a familiar if the wizard is unconcious?
@RobertF depending on the type of familiar, it's a possibility, You'd have to check the spell to see how much leeway they have re: autonomous action.

comment How am I supposed to award magic items so that PCs aren't over/under-powered?
@Mouhgouda and that's extra important in 4e which has tight wealth by level standards that are dependent on your PCs using what they're given.

comment How am I supposed to award magic items so that PCs aren't over/under-powered?
This also really doesn't fit with 4e's typical magic item ethos which means it should be added to a game with incredibly great caution (since 4e's math is rather dependent on having those items available and working)

comment Where can I find a background for a lawful evil character?
Just edit the 4 points into the question. A summary is fine if it's too long (though it shouldn't be, just like 1-2 sentences per point)

comment Where can I find a background for a lawful evil character?
So you're looking for an additional bond for a LE character? You will probably need to give us your current Bonds/Ideals/Flaws/Traits and a rundown of your character, who he is, what he does, and any ideas you already have. This is probably something you should ultimately work out with your GM because these are narrative bits about your character not something you pick off a set list (there is a small set of bonds for each background, you can consult those for ideas).

it would be helpful if we knew which edition of D&D you're playing. background has dramatically different connotations depending on which edition you're playing.

comment How do I play a Roll20 Game?
Hi and welcome. These are questions for your DM, not for some random blokes on the interwebs. Please contact him and get the details for your game (the answers to your questions are ones that only he can know because he knows what you're playing and how).

comment How can PCs create potions?
@Dan I've expanded my answer to be authoritative on the other question. There is no current ruling for potions apart from the basic crafting rules. Going to dupe this to that one.

comment How does one craft Potions of Healing?
@Miniman updated for DMG release. Long story short: don't brew healing potions using the magic item crafting rules...

comment Is the first encounter of the starter set really “deadly”?
@Aviose yeah, Goblins do what, 6 damage or something? that's 2 good hits or 1 good crit. Or even 1 hit if they didn't bother to boost con

@JasonK you can always choose to knock someone out instead of kill them when you hit them with melee attacks.

@Ben you understand the encounter meanings correctly. Deadly means "good chance to lose someone, have good tactics or you may well lose"

comment Codename: Morningstar aka Dungeonscape
@Tijnkwan several of the chat regulars used it in beta, we can give you some thoughts if you drop in main or 5e chat.

comment Is Thunderwave centered on the caster?
To update this. the DMG defines a point or origin as an intersection of a grid square or hex.

comment Encounter Budget in D&D 4e after Essentials
I don't think anything changed re: encounter budgets with the essentials errata. What exactly are you asking about?

comment When are targets picked for spells with multiple missles
@GMJoe because a number of things proc per damage roll? But it's more about the model, if the model is multiple attacks, then that's one thing. If it's one attack, then that's another. MM is 1 attack, and see above for a quote that indicates why

comment Readying an action before combat
You're still ignoring the initiative roll though, that's the part I'm getting at.

comment Readying an action before combat
Let's use a less silly scenario then. Let's say we have a 2 man party. The door man and the charger. They open a door, the door man is at the door, the charger stands back 2 squares and says "I ready an action to charge if I see an enemy in range when the door is opened", the door is opened, iniative is rolled and the charger is at the bottom of the iniative order. There is an enemy on the other side of the door. He's now first in the initiative order because his readied action goes off and he keeps that position the remainder of combat. His initiative roll was pointless.

comment Readying an action before combat
I have major problems with this. Namely the fact that it lets the PCs completely ignore initiative whenever they are entering a room. A group of PCs who is moving room to room could say "we all ready actions to charge as soon as the door is opened" This effectively ignores the entire initiative mechanic.
