comment Thus spake the Warforged: How do their mouths work?
The OP was asking for an official answer; This answer is largely speculation. Please clearly indicate which bits are speculation on your part, so that the OP might more easily judge how useful it would be to them.

You should edit your answer to fit the current question, then.

Why not just make simulacra of yourself to begin with?

comment How to easily come up with improvised dialogue
@OliverLong Yes, exactly. You can't prepare an answer for each and every possible question that players can come up with. Instead, you need a way of preparing those answers on-the-fly, and for that you need to have a solid understanding the personality doing the answering.

comment Can a sleeping character Hide?
You seem to be conflating concealment and cover, which are handled as two separate things in 3.5rd edition: Concealment (being hard to see) provides a miss chance rolled seperately from each attack roll, and cover (being behind something) provides a bonus to AC, or makes hitting impossible. In any case, are there any rules that describe how concealment % (not cover) affects spot checks?

Are there any rules for how concealment interacts with spot checks? Also, from memory, 50% concealment represents being completely invisible - What should 100% represent?

comment Making sure a character doesn't outshine others?
@CataruMoore The "Defender, Striker, Healer, Mage" role model isn't a bad starting point for understanding how classes work, but remember that builds can change everything - It's easy to make a mage who plays like a striker, or a healer who plays like a defender, for example.

revised How do zones and line of effect work, and are they adjusted if the zone follows the player (kinda like an aura, but defined as a zone)?
A few minor grammar corrections.

comment How can a Shifter get along with a Silver Flame Inquisitor?
Note that dwarves, elves, and several other races are long-lived enough that 120 years is still within living memory.

Never trust anyone who swears by the name of a god of trickery.

comment How to build a flexible and scalable system for PCs' NPC organizations?
@AscarLanthir The stated purpose of this site is to provide answers that solve real problems. Not having a set of rules for player-run organisations that scales is a problem, but it's unlikely you need a solution that works for every system ever devised - chances are, you only need one for the specific system or group of systems you play and run. Also, what SevenSidedDie says is correct: As written, your question could be read as asking for a lot of things, and you're much more likely to get a useful answer if you ask for just one thing at a time.

comment How to build a flexible and scalable system for PCs' NPC organizations?
I wonder whether this can be answered in a system-agnostic fashion; Depending on the game, a PC-run organisation could scale from "Me and the guys" to "multiverse-spanning empire."
