comment What RPGs treat magic as being common?
@Sorcerer I was going to disagree with you but then I remember that races like gnomes and halflings get spell-like abilities as racial abilities so they are inherently magical at least in D&D3x/Pathfinder. That and practically half the threats to the common folk are magical.

+1 I didn't realize OGL was not D20-centric!

comment How do Energy Effects work underwater?
Yea, we kinda half followed physics in the game. Sonic did 1.5 times damage but electricity/cold act normally. Fire didn't work at all.

comment Non-combat objective: Delay larger enemy force
Kind of a hybrid, that makes sense. The point that 4e is not simulationist is one I gotta remember too. Timing in rounds is one of those odds things that throws me off. It seems to be tied very concretely to the real-world in a game where most things are not so much!

comment Why do Combat encounters and Skill checks give the same XP reward?
The correlation between time in game world in combat and time at the table in combat is really jarring. For instance in this question the goal is to delay attackers 10 rounds or roughly a minute in game world time. That's not very long.

comment Non-combat objective: Delay larger enemy force
It's interesting to me that this is a delaying action but the players only managed to delay the attackers for 42 seconds (7 rnds x 6 seconds per round - unless rounds are longer in 4e). Even the win condition means delaying the attackers only a minute! I suppose this directly relates to the fact the 4e was designed around a certain expected length of combat though so strung out battles are hard to simulate.

@Cthos I was probably channeling Pathfinder and assuming it was a holdover from 3.5

comment Flanking and swarms in 4e
This is interesting as I don't think you could flank swarms in D&D 3.5

comment Do desert heat hazards actually pose a threat to a Pathfinder party?
I'd say it'd be more highly problematic if you didn't have a cleric (or druid) in your party. Otherwise I'd agree that deserts are less of a problem with a free source of water walking along.
