I'm a game designer that's been playing tabletop games since the early '00s. Most of my experience is with the D&D 3/3.5/Pathfinder ruleset, but I've bee branching out more in the past few years.

comment Mithril Breastplate + Armor Expert seems ridiculous
I don't understand what you're saying here. How is he supposed to rule that the player needs armour proficiency? The point of the question is that the normal nonproficiency penalties for armour don't apply to armour with an ACP of 0. If you are suggesting a rule that changes that, could you explain what the rule change you're suggesting is?

comment Can a cleric choose to channel damage or healing in a case by case basis?
@Dakeyras I don't think that's correct. It says in the class ability description that the ability "affects all creatures of one type (either undead or living)". It's pretty clear that you can only damage or heal one kind of creature at a time. A good cleric can't choose to (for example) heal undead, but they can't damage undead and heal living with a single use of their ability.

comment What effect would removing the confirmation roll have on the game?
That sentence is only referencing the moments immediately surrounding when someone rolls a 20. I've watched that kind of thing happen with several GMs. It has nothing to do with GMing, it only has to do with the excitement of getting a crit and the disappointment of failing a confirmation roll.

comment What effect would removing the confirmation roll have on the game?
My proposed change wouldn't let you get crits when you wouldn't normally get hits. If your crit range is 15-20, and you need an 18 to hit, you still wouldn't hit on a 16. That's part of the normal critical hit rules, and has nothing to do with confirmation. Normally, you only make a confirmation roll if your attack hits normally and your roll is within your crit range.

Also, in the quote block it says that "Drawing a weapon normally provokes", which is false. Drawing a weapon does not typically provoke an attack of opportunity.

Is that quote block quoting something specific? You should probably either cite what you're quoting or remove the quote tags.
