comment What is the size or scale of the world of Greyhawk?
Excellent, thanks! Yeah, I know that Living Greyhawk had modified the map boundries, but I can work with those more easily than . Thanks for the answer.

comment What striker builds let you play a secondary defender role?
This is my experience, too. It's easier to take a Fighter and make him, say, a Dwarven Battlerager (unless they've continued to nerf that in the past year; I haven't kept up) which sacrifices raw AC for temp HP and extra damage if you stick to chain mail. Pick a decent exotic weapon and focus on powers that roll damage dice, and you'll do just fine. I was able to keep up with all the fair strikers (i.e., non-Ranger).

comment Does the altitude start from square 0 or square 1?
Just because the player can only select an action every 6 seconds doesn't mean the character is a paper airplane in the meantime. If you're familiar with flying at all, you know when you're approaching stall speed and adjust accordingly unless you're trying to stall (or are otherwise out of control).

comment Pathfinder 5-foot step vs. D&D 4e shift
Note that this difference doesn't mean you can't safely withdraw in 3.5 (or PF, AFAIK). If all you do in a round is move, you do not provoke AoO from leaving the initial square of movement. If you wish to withdraw, then, you simply don't take a 5-foot step.

comment Can (ocean-going) sailing ships navigate The River
You could portage any ship, technically, given enough manpower. Whether or not it's feasible is different. The gunboats AFAIK were steamship riverboats or skiffs. I guess I'm thinking more of the British ships at the Siege of Fort St. Phillip. You can see in the link there the location of the battle and some of the ships the British used. Look at the sea strength of the British in the sidebar. They had a sloop-of-war, a brig-of-war, and a schooner. That siege was relatively close to the mouth of the river, though.
