I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

comment Which class is the Magical Knack more useful in?
My point is the OP said he's looking for power but given his initial setup likely isn't using that word at the level some others might. Plus, humor. Try it :-)

comment Does the trait “Magical Knack” affect familiars?
+1 and this might impact your understanding of Magical Knack and your other questions - upped caster level does not give you more spells or anything other than an upped level-variable duration/range/effect for the spells you can cast. It is less than "+1 spellcaster level".

comment What systems contain Multiple Caster or Combined Casting rules?
Hey man. We don't really do list questions here; a good RPG.SE question should have a single best answer. If you were to put in requirements as to what "good" combined casting means to you, then perhaps.

comment Does there exist an application for tracking your library of games?
I use Excel... Most things that try to get fancier than that end up constraining me in some way.

comment What are the best ways to utilize Wisdom and Charisma?
@SevenSidedDie If they're concerned about WIS being used by thieves/Perception, then it sounds like they're OGLing off d20 more than really using OD&D. WIS was a thief dump stat prior to 3e.

comment Combining Witches' Charm (Su) Hex and Diplomacy?
I'm cleaning up this question to meet our site standards (one coherent question). Just to get it out of the way, saves to witch hexes are all the same just like spell saves are all the same, 10 + 1/2 level + INT mod, and 1/day means 1/day for you, other witches may still hit them with the hex (this was clarified in a FAQ). Natural ones do not always fail skill checks. Yes, a lower stat gives a penalty on saves or other resistance calculations.
