comment Is it a bad idea to steal characters from other media?
Just for context - this is often referred to as an Expy, an exported character from one franchise to another, usually as a homage or reworking. If it's good for the dozens of TV shows, films and novels listed there, it's probably good for you too. :)

comment Which issue of Dragon magazine had a chart for volleys of arrows?
Can you narrow it down a bit in terms of the year it was published, approximately? That can make it easier for people who might want to go skim their collection looking for it.

comment What classes are designed to pair together in lore or class description?
Also, are you referring only to official WotC-published sourcebooks? Because if you expand it to all 3rd-party published books or even homebrewed self-published material, this list will be endless and unknowable.

comment How can we fish an indestructible item out of lava?
I wouldn't actually call 3e the "grandfather" of Pathfinder. More an older brother, which the younger is influenced by and tries to emulate and even prove itself better. But I'd save "grandfather" for 1e at the newest. :)

comment Why would I ever choose rolling hit points?
@Hennes Which only makes it less likely to hit the exact average. It increases swinginess, which is exactly the opposite of relying on the average. It does mean that it can be real bummer if you roll low, but also a real win if you roll high.

comment Looking for RPGs without character-classes
@Ferox It's a good start, but it's still a very broad question. I can easily think of several answers that fit thebill (Ars Magica, Dresden Files, and others) none of which will be the correct one, which doesn't really fit in well with Stack Exchange's "concrete answers to concrete questions" goal.

@Ferox We've put your question temporarily on hold until we can focus it better. It's not punishment, just a temporary hold until we can make sure the question generates good, relevant answers.
