comment Does Combat Opening use an immediate action?
It might help to frame combat challenge into a proper power card. What's happening here is that the effect line of the Combat Challenge power card (if one existed) is being replaced by "allow an ally to make an MBA". Acuatlly it is a power card see: wizards.com/dndinsider/compendium/…

comment Can I skip reading the Red Box?
@Mala No. It's gramatically correct as a no because of the sentence it's used in. The answer to the question is yes though.

comment What content and format does a MET: VTM character submission need?
Hi and welcome. We're happy to help you workshop specific details about working out your character's backstory, but helping you with the whole thing is out of scope for this site. Please edit to add the details you've established and to ask about specific issues you've encountered in trying to develop your character. Thanks!

comment Can a wizard ever gain more at-will spells?
The Half Elf's Dilettante class feature + Versatile Master feat at paragon also allows this. There's also a way to gain Magic Missile for free via the Blackstaff Aprentice Theme.

comment Is there a shapeshifter that needs to keep its quarry alive?
@user10281 Hi and welcome, I've noticed that you've contributed two answers so far, but neither of them are really the kinds of answers that we expect to see here. Please spend a few more minutes thinking about your answers and writing them in a way that fully answers the question. Our about page may provide you with more insight. Thanks!

comment Converting 4e Forgotten Realms setting to 3.5e or Pathfinder
As posed this is asking for a full conversion, which is a pretty significant task, likely worthy of a book, not an SE question. If you have specific bits you get stuck on we can help with that, but asking for the full conversion is out of scope here.

Shuriken and daggers do not carry the same "are used up when fired from a projectile weapon" that arrows, sling bullets and crossbow bolts do.

comment Mechanically, how do I prepare a village of not-quite-vampire-thrall monk NPCs?
One thing to keep in mind is that one of the trademark vampire conditions is Dominated and it's slightly over level for your current PCs. Vamps tend to show up in Paragon. The heroic vampires I'm looking at, the only one that inflicts dominated does so on the second failed saving throw. Just something to keep in mind here.

comment Any provision for taking a second class feature?
Good luck? But if you're new to 4e you may find that a rather..frustrating experience. (most characters need to hit to do anything, starting stats below 18 mean you don't hit very much)

comment What are good books and implements to get started with DnD4?
@derp Dungeons and Dragons Insider, it's Wizards' subscription service for 4e. It includes access to most of the source materials in a searchable format, a character builder, a monster builder and access to Dungeon and Dragon magazines

Red Box is even more simplified than Essentials as far a characters go, which is a bit disappointing. Also you should at least make mention of DDI as it can pretty much replace most books

Choosing DnD 4th edition or Essentials for a new group and DM? is also very relevant

comment What are good books and implements to get started with DnD4?
See the duplicate post I've linked, what you should be looking to get your hands on is one of the following: PHB/DMG/MM1, HOTFK/HOTFL/DMK/MV/RC, or simply a DDI subscription and a copy of the Rules Compendium.

If you're looking for a class that does allow for the addition of class features natively as you level, the essentials Mage (wizard), acquires additional magic schools as she levels up.
