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.

comment Flanking and swarms in 4e
@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.

comment How can I convert a 3.5 Psion into a Pathfinder Game?
I haven't actually played (or played with) an arcane spellcaster in Pathfinder yet so I can't directly compare against them. At low levels he was less useful (but better then a 3.5 psion because PF adds some at-willish powers for Psions) but he's becoming capable of taking big groups down fast as long as he can determine what their worst save is. (Different energy types require different saves so pick their weak one and better chance of success.) I think in the long term he will outstrip the fighter and paladin but for now the entire party seems to pull their weight equally.

comment Afterlife according to the paradigm of the new World of Darkness?
Book of the Dead for Geist would probably be your best bet or simply the core World of Darkness book. I'm swamped or I'd try and give you some page numbers (hence the comment and not an answer).
