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 been branching out more in the past few years.

comment How many Astral Constructs may exist at one time, created from the same manifester?
shrug I really don't have a dog in this fight. I've only ever played with the 1 construct limit in place, and it didn't cause any problems. No matter what legalistic interpretation of the 3.5 primacy rules you use, printed rules are printed rules, and are valid for use in games.

comment Is it possible to play an Epic D&D3.5/Pathfinder campaign with a non-magic hero?
Two questions: What immunities can spellcasters gain that they can't also give to ther non-spellcaster allies? I understand that the standard charop assumption is that you don't have friends to cast spells on you, but if the cleric is casting death ward on himself every day, there's nothing stopping him from casting it on the martial character as well. Question 2: Could you unpack your abbreviations a bit more? What's PAO, or PGtF, or HoR (which you mentioned in a comment on another answer)?

comment Dice probabilities when rolling more dice than needed
This doesn't answer the question. It's a high quality and accurate treatment of dice probabilities, but you don't mention the case that the querent is asking about: how do you calculate the probablility of rolling a certain set of numbers when you roll more dice than there are numbers in the set? You show how to calculate (1,2,3) out of 3d4, but the querent is asking about (1,2,3,X) out of 4d4.
