comment How to deal effectively with a player unable to lose?
@Dronz Probably because in my head, a starting level character is the extreme of "lose all your gear, all your abilities, and all your levels".

comment How do I help players whose time with previous editions confuses their understanding of D&D 5th Edition?
Also, the question isn't "how do I deal with players who don't read the rules", it's "how do I deal with players who have read too many rules". Unfortunately, there's a lot of things that have exactly the same name in 3.5, 4E, and 5E, but work slightly differently.

comment How many arrows an archer can carry/bring with him
@Francesco - Keep in mind that 3.5 only cares about encumbrance as weight, not bulk. (As a proof, consider how astoundingly awkward it would be to carry around even a single 10-foot pole indoors.)

comment Can I craft a 25 AC piece of armor?
Mind, that's assuming you're going for pure non-magical armor. You can cut down your pain slightly by going for +5 BrickArmor that's AC(15). That's "only" about 950K GP (including the 25K for +5 armor). But even then, you're building relic-level armor - a craftman's life's work. That's the stuff an adventurer finds, not builds. :)

comment How to deal with lack of downtime as a wizard?
Possibly in theory, but in practice it amounts to the same thing - messing with a player arbitrarily. To throw a variant example, it's no different in my mind than starting a game then telling the archer that there are no arrows in stock in towns. Ever. Can't buy 'em. (But I will edit the question to make clearer).

comment I'm running a Pathfinder adventure using 3.5E rules - what should I watch out for?
Marking this as accepted since this is matching my experience - we're around level 7-8 now and once the characters (and players) got their bearings, things have swung to the opposite problem - I have to start upscaling things so it's not a cakewalk. ;)

comment When does a character get fatigued?
And the 6-hour rule really only exists to declare the length you have to rest for an extended (vs. the 5-minute short rest). And for evil DMs, it opens the door for orcs attacking every five and a half hours...
