comment Delaying Paragon level
At one point the online character builder would break if you delayed, I don't know if this is still true. However I believe it is legal and legitimate to delay selection until a later time.

comment Does reducing a roll change a critical?
@RGThigpen there are several things that negate crits (fortification armor gives you a roll, there is a feat that does something similar, some other interrupt powers). The case here is wondering whether this particular power (or powers like it) alter the number on the die or the result. This power in the first case could be used to achieve a crit or negate one, in the second case it could just give you a chance to change a hit to a miss or a miss to a hit...

This is the L12 Luckbender paragon path Utility power.

This was all well and good until the player realized he was out of range for the power and took the results (decapitation)...

comment What is the normal “pace” for a 4E session/campaign?
If you want to speed up your sessions take a peek around the site, there are some great suggestions. One of the ones I can suggest wholeheartedly is to invest in a DDI membership, character creation/rules look ups become a snap. Plus players have their power cards on a sheet in front of them instead of needing to look them up.

comment What is the normal “pace” for a 4E session/campaign?
its 10 same level encounters/level. L1 encounter for 5 PCs is 500 XP or 100/PC which means 10 L1 encounters will get you leveled up. Obviously you will face encounters that are above your current level so you will level faster, but in turn those encounters will likely take longer (more monster HP etc).

comment Immobilized creature doesn't want to pay; can he charge instead?
EoNT effects cannot be escaped with a delay. If you delay they are still in effect even if you delay until after the caster's turn.

an AT-ST is a vehicle not a droid...(there are pilots, gunners etc on board)

comment 4E staff fighting feat, what is good about double weapon part?
@okeefe - sorry if its not clear. I guess my question is, if you are using a staff as a double weapon you should have to wield it with both hands (causing you to drop or stow the other staff you were dual wielding). Else you would be able to dual wield and still maintain a shield.

Curious why your cleric is wielding a staff? typically clerics go for a holy symbol and a blunt weapon (or a blunt weapon that can function as a holy symbol).

comment Do any games have XP (or a similar concept) as an in-game construct?
I think most games have some in game concept of "experiences" or "renown." While these may not be in game mechanical concepts they do exist, although it would be DM dependent.

comment Are there parts of text missing in published errata?
I don't think so, not on this particular one. It merely mentions that it prevents the property from becoming recursive, which it does. No need to get further into the details.

Original text: "When you have concealment from a creture at teh start of your turn, you remain concealed from that creature until the start of your next turn." In other words you would have perpetual concealment.

comment What does “any enemy you deal damage to” mean in Bloody Blades?
I'd seen this before, but forgot when I was writing the qusetion, a power needs a target line to be considered an attack. Something both the stance power here and Rain of Steel lack. Thus neither marks.

I was in the wizards FAQ pages and found an entry that supports this: wizards.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2101/related/1

comment What does “any enemy you deal damage to” mean in Bloody Blades?
Agreed that it doesn't mark. Rain apparently doesn't mark either. It looks like for a power to mark it has to have a target line. This also has an interesting effect. Inflicting damage with Rain of Steel or this stance does not revoke your hidden status...

comment Would adding a Move-Attack-Move “basic combat power” to DnD 4e unbalance the game?
@GMNoob this would be way over powered as a basic attack. The rogue has something that allows I think 2 squares of free movement (not shifting) with an attack as an at-will
