comment How to help a player to roleplay the character he created?
This answer assumes that attempting to create a consistent, verisimilitudinous world can't possibly contribute to the group's fun as much as letting the player have a character that is disruptive to the mood the other players are working on. You're right that maybe letting him play the character would be the best solution, but maybe it wouldn't be; YOu don't address that possibility. -1.

comment How would I make custom items into a set?
One possible, partial solution to the cost paradox would be to remove set bonuses, and instead give the items in the set specific abilities designed to compliment each other so that sets work well when all the parts are held and used in conjunction. There's a risk of losing the flavour of a set that way, though. Hmm...

comment How would one create a bag of coin-changing?
@Zachiel There's ways around that. For instance, the bag's portal might link to a secure vault in Arcadia that's conveniently close to one of the pre-existing portals to the city of doors.

comment Is there an official rule set for unstable magic in D&D 3.5?
@Dakeyras There was a 3.X supplement that included a wild magic spell caster class, but it's been so long since I read it that I've forgotten where it was, or which variant of 3.X is was made for.

comment Can I program myself to use Gunnery instead of any ranged-weapon skill?
+1 for pointing out the distinction between skill definitions. That said, rather than carting around AIs for each gun you have, you might be better served by some skillsofts for the guns you want to use, or by psychosurgery to boost your skills to the requisite levels.

comment Intellego Imaginem - What feedback do I get from manipulating my sense of touch?
I'm not sure how good a comparison Touchsight would be, given that Ars Magica uses rather different physical laws and concepts of the senses to D&D, but this is otherwise a good answer. +1.

comment What software can be useful for a DM running D&D?
This question looks like it would invite lists-of-lists answers; I'm therefore voting to close it unless it can be narrowed down.

comment Should drawing weapons involve an initiative roll when combat isn't going to happen?
Good answer. (I do feel the need to point out that this is a matter of player expectations of what initiative means, though; Certainly, many groups do assume that "roll initiative" = "start combat," but not all.)

comment Is negative energy (or chanelling it) necessarily evil?
This would be a great answer if the OP was asking only about spells. However, they're also asking about the Channel Energy supernatural ability. If you expand this answer to cover supernatural abilities that use negative energy as well as spells, it'd be better than it currently is.
