comment What happens if a Summoner's Eidolon is sent 100 years into the future?
@Danny how does he force you to play with him, anyway?

comment Are risks of non-combat death exciting or just frustrating and discouraging?
@GMJoe sandbox is absoutely compatible with this play style, instead.

comment Does the half-level modifier contribute to damage?
Yeah, it was just an half-assed joke. And this is another one. So we basically have one full ass, I guess?

comment Does the half-level modifier contribute to damage?
Half-life (t1⁄2) is the amount of time required for a quantity to fall to half its value as measured at the beginning of the time period. While the term "half-life" can be used to describe any quantity which follows an exponential decay, it is most often used within the context of nuclear physics and nuclear chemistry—that is, the time required, probabilistically, for half of the unstable, radioactive atoms in a sample to undergo radioactive decay.

comment Is there a way to browse Scabard's characters, irrespective of their campaign?
Currently I'm just using as a very vague inspiration: basically I look at a character, and I re-create a new character using a few aspects of that one as a source. I considered using it to build my campaign, but currently I opted for using a wiki instead – I don't rule out switching to it in future, though currently I'm a bit unaware of its pros and cons.

comment Can a paladin backstab a demon or such creatures?
I don't see how this question is unclear. I agree with OP: it is perfectly clear what he is asking about. If it's OT for other reasons, fine, but in that case state it, since it is not unclear.

comment Is the same page tool overkill for brand new players?
"Next time, I would bring unfilled copies of the form for everyone" IIRC it explicitly said it wasn't meant to be used this way, "a single copy, everyone collaboratively fills it" instead. (I'm not implying this is a good or bad idea. Just that, since it differs from intended use, maybe it's worth pointing it out explicitly)

comment Can a Sorcerer with an Int of 2 still cast spells?
So… there are sorcerers, who are native casters… but they still require all the fluff mages do (including material components!!!). This is one of the most silly things of the D&D3 world.

Wow, you're great! Is there a list of all available categories somewhere?

comment What is a good game for a conflict-avoidant, disaffectionate player
I wanted to suggest this exact same thing: playing a host of NPCs instead of one specific PC seems like the best fit for her requirements!

@thedarkwanderer thank you very much!

comment Player refuses to show up regularly, and when he does, never wants to roleplay
PAY ATTENTION! craft that situation in such a way that if that character goes berserk, the other characters are unaffected! (unless they explicitly decide otherwise)

comment How do I make an interesting escape from a fire?
@Cristol.GdM that is a great suggestion on how to count the timer, but it does NOT explain how to make it interesting.

comment Is it common for D&D characters be moved to or reused in different DMs' campaigns?
But this is wrong. The question is: "Is it common?" The right answer is "No, it totally isn't." These might be interesting suggestions, but miss the point that this is a very unusual thing. If you clearly stated it is, and then gave the suggestions, it would be much better; otherwise you'll mislead him.

comment Origin of “You all meet in a tavern…” cliche in fantasy roleplaying games?
The other answers are nice, but I think this is the best: it's so obvious and natural that a tavern would be used for such a role, that poiting out to a single origin doesn't make much sense.

comment With the lifespan of elves, would you ever encounter a low-level elf?
But if we compare a today's 18 years old he'll be immensely more "powerful" than a middle ages' 12 years old (surely will there be some areas were the other one is better, you can hardly be better at everything). So, if you compare their levels… the human would be a much higher level. I.e. you just told I'm right :)

comment Making a character without a soul?
"can't learn anything" should be emphasized a bit more, and it inequivocally means "can't be a PC".

comment What skill to oppose undodgeable energy weapons attack rolls?
@PaulMarshall having just two skills doesn't make it any more deep or interesting. Either you have a wide array of skills, but this turns into a tactical boardgame, or keep it simple with just one skill.

comment Can I use a barrier power to create a bridge?
This is too semplicistic. Sure, it's great, but it's a short-term gain which might cause long-term suffering, if done incorrectly.
