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 Confused about fighter's Two Weapon Fighting Style
What have you read to find the answers? As best as I can tell those are all explicitly answered in both the PHB and the free Basic PDF...

comment Improving combat when playing on IRC
That's a great opinion, but not what's happened in real games when I've done it.

comment What to do when a great idea comes too soon?
This is not a duplicate, though that might be a good XY guidance for him. He specifically asks how to do it, not whether to do it.

comment Properly describing enemies: how much detail to provide?
Given the fact that they are deliberately emulating "all previous versions of D&D," I suspect that once the DMG is out and magic items are explained you'll have the opportunity to look like Elric again.

comment How to distinguish between arcane and divine spellcasters?
If we have to explain the rules of a game system to someone in the comments, then they probably shouldn't be contemplating answering. Or answering in comments, which is two strikes.

comment How to distinguish between arcane and divine spellcasters?
We do not disallow links to dndtools. It's fine to encourage people not to do them but there's not a "rule against them" that would cause me to take moderator action. Having said that, comments aren't for tangential discussion, so I'm deleting comments that fit that description.
