I'm totally picturing a tengu with an air compressor strapped to it's back

comment Combat system that is less abstract than hit points yet is not more lethal
There is huge variability in the lethality of hit point systems (And in fact it varies rather widely based on genre). Basically comparing the lethality of HP systems is odd because HP doesn't define lethality, the system and mechanics define it and the HP system implements it.

comment How to deal with players not taking things seriously?
I agree that the context is off here. These are people you are sitting in the same room with, if you can't talk to them then you probably need a new group...

comment What bonuses do I get to Implement attacks when I use my weapon as an implement?
There are some newer dual expertise feats that give limited expertise in both weapon and implement powers

Welcome to RPG.SE! Could you expand a bit on why you think this game fits the requirements?

comment What is a good combat tracker for D&D 4th Edition?
Welcome to RPG.SE! Looks like a really cool tool. The one thing we do ask is that you do disclose your relationship to products that you are associated with.

comment What are some good sources for combat tactics for a GM to use?
Welcome to RPG.SE. I feel that your question is too broad to be constructive, and resource requests really aren't all that helpful here. If you narrowed your requirements we would be more than welcome to give you some actual strategies you can use instead of just a group of random links that might not be helpful.

comment If movement is interrupted and an enemy occupies the destination square, is the movement lost?
I think my last paragraph handles this issue. yes they lose the square (you've invalidated the triggering move), but they do get to continue the move action

comment If movement is interrupted and an enemy occupies the destination square, is the movement lost?
@Hand-E-Food you can move through an ally's space as long as you don't end the movement there (if you're double moving you can end the first move there, as long as you continue). You cannot move through an enemy's square unless a power explicitly allows you to, or you're phasing.

comment What is a fun-to-play high damage build?
@Jared If you define "fun to play" and "high damage" this is probably at least remotely answerable (I'd still argue chat is better, but meh). Just define your requirements better.

comment What is a fun-to-play high damage build?
@JohnP exactly. And we welcome some kinds of subjective questions, ultimately, for me this one does not meet the guidelines of good subjective/bad subjective.

comment What is a fun-to-play high damage build?
I feel like this question is too subjective to be answerable. for one the criteria of fun-to-play is sorta nebulous. (Honestly chat is probably a much better venue for this sort of query)

This really doesn't tell me why this answers the question. Need a bit more than links to the game.

comment Difference between teleportation and moving in 4e?
I don't understand what you mean about "takes your full turn during combat" You get a move, a minor, and a standard, moving at most takes your entire move action...

comment Do shardminds have to share a language to communicate with an NPC/PC?
Could you unpack that a bit? I see how the emphasized portion adds, but could you expand your answer to explain the impact, and how you see this working?

Why is this getting reopen votes? Game-Id should be off topic. voting to delete.

comment How could I make a giant pc in dnd 4e?
Good solution on the burst/aura problem, it's similar to what you do with mounts so that's a great start. (pick an origin square on your mount)

comment Can a pixie fly higher than their altitude of one?
@LorenPechtel oh I love corner cases an optimizing, but truly theoretical maximum height wasn't the topic here. That's the subject of the other question :)
