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 Alternate, 2H, non-double use of quarterstaff?
You do not get the 1.5xSTR when two-weapon fighting with a double weapon, you get 1x and .5x "just as though the character were wielding a one-handed weapon and a light weapon." Proof is every monster stat block that uses a quarterstaff, e.g. d20pfsrd.com/bestiary/monster-listings/monstrous-humanoids/…

Closed because it's unclear and the questioner appears to have bailed.

comment Why even bother with XP?
Your question seems to lack an actual question. As a result it's just pulling opinions. What objective question can we help you with?

comment Can D&D Fourth Edition be played effectively in a non-gamist manner?
Fair enough, I needed to ask - this is a question that people like to answer without any 4e experience, so it can't be taken for granted without more information
