Check out my character sheets for D&D 3.5 and Pathfinder:

comment Combat rules for large battles
The rules introduced in Kingmaker have now been straightened out and formalised in Ultimate Campaign. Since I mostly play Pathfinder nowadays, that's the closest thing to an accepted answer.

comment Do you use character sheets? Or, do you use a blank sheet of paper?
d'oh, I completely failed to note my own URL change

comment Oriental-themed characters in Pathfinder
Yeah, there's a lot more material now for designing oriental (or any other) theme characters than there was when I asked the question.

comment Calculating and balancing challenge ratings
That calculator is very helpful. I know raw numbers aren't the complete answer, but having them to hand makes it much easier.

comment Beyond hit points: injury in D&D
I guess my attitude might seem half-hearted, in not wanting to make the major modifications that D&D needs to become more realistic. My focus here is above all what's fun for the players; realism is only one means to that end. And the fact is, my gaming group are lazy hack-and-slashers, so trying to force them to play something too sophisticated is likely to fail. Fun is also the reason I favour specific nerfs over simply killing the PCs.

comment How can you add character to in-game religions?
+1 As a designer of character sheets, you've prompted me to go replace the word 'deity' in a dozen places.

comment What can I do to keep my cool at the table?
+1 for 6. If you treat the game as a place to explore unusual options, then losing the game can be a win.

comment What can I do to keep my cool at the table?
+1 for being willing to ask for advice. That's actually really mature.

comment Beyond hit points: injury in D&D
That's how I prefer to see hit points too. They're less about health and injury than they are about stamina and exhaustion.

Would it not be better to have plot-relevant choice of injury, rather than random?

comment Beyond hit points: injury in D&D
I like this bit: "Hit points heal fast. Conditions take treatment and time." I also like that there's no single table of all possible effects, since it gives me the freedom to come up with plot-specific ones. On the other hand, a guide to what penalties are fair would stem accusations of DM bias.

comment Beyond hit points: injury in D&D
This is about right. There can be a variety of different triggers, some resulting in more serious injuries than others - for example, suffering a critical hit, reaching zero, critically fumbling etc.

Interesting. I don't know a lot about 4e or its disease system, so this wouldn't have occurred to me. I'd probably want to simplify it a bit.

comment Oriental-themed characters in Pathfinder
That's exactly what I was thinking: find a set of base classes, variants, traits and flavourful items that approximate to each archetype.

comment How many editions of Dungeons & Dragons are there?
As many as there are groups playing it. Every group has house rules and things the players and DM skip over.

comment Character Sheets paper or plastic?
+1 for the nice feel of paper.

comment Do your players make maps while exploring the unknown of your game's world?
+1 for maps found in the game.
