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?
@TheoBrinkman a 3-years-old hasn't gone to school yet, how does that even compare? Yes, one is educated, another one is trained, and you claimed that education means nothing rule-wise? Nonsense.

They may be less prepared for adventuring through the world, but they have an incredibly superior culture, which will help them in many other areas. Everything counts.

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.

comment What can I do to paper to make it look aged?
While it is definitely an interesting and useful method, I wouldn't call it "astonishing". Didn't try it myself, but the picture shown in that site is a bit disappointing. Maybe I was disappointed only because I assumed it was "astonishing", though.

comment How to handle wealthy player characters as a GM?
Thanks, I'll try to explain. Many settings are carelessly "designed", so that they lack any resemblance of internal consistency. Talking about that kind of inflation equals to talking about this general problem. But this is a general problem that affects the game as a whole, so if it would be acceptable to use it as an answer, any question on any problem in this setting might have the same answer.

comment How to handle wealthy player characters as a GM?
The "Handwaving" suggestion is simply horrible, while the "Inflation" highlights a common problem that plagues badly designed universes, like most D&D ones.

comment How to handle wealthy player characters as a GM?
@Dakeyras this basically means becoming (self-proclaiming!) a nobleman. Other noblemen will notice and act accordingly. Either way, you'll have to deal with them.

comment Without a magic item economy, what is gold for?
This answer is a bit disappointing considering the question: I am under the impression that he is specifically asking for something that doesn't involve broadening the scope of the campaingn, keeping it "small party, just the PCs".

comment Player/DM who is having trouble letting go of an old campaign
@Bobson I guess they weren't having fun any more, since they were so ridicolously overpowered.

comment Is it appropriate to tell players the expected outcome of a throw?
The Angry DM helps a lot understanding this concept.

comment How can I avoid focusing too much on one player character?
"my players have at one point explicitly or implicitly expressed their desire to be more included in the overarching plot" if they really want to, why don't they also try to write some backstory?

comment What order do multiclass characters spend Hit Dice at the end of a short rest?
I'm puzzled about what gave you the idea they had to be used in order.

comment How could I make Bruce Banner/Incredible Hulk as a valid character?
Keep in mind you could do something "hulk-like" without actually shape-shifting. It would be like "translating Hulk into this another different set".
