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 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.

While this is true, the high to-hit fighter will still be a lot more powerful in general. If he hits on a 6, his average damage per round will be doing .79 times his damage roll each round without this change, and .8 with it. The guy who needs a 16 will be doing .3 times his damage roll (assuming a greatsword with improved crit) without this change and .45 with it. The 'bad fighter' is still way less effective than the good one, which is what I would expect.

comment How do the Planar Shepherd's features interact with the Outlands?
That... doesn't really clarify it. I'm not asking about what point of view you want, I'm asking whether house rules or homebrew content would answer your question or not.

Are you looking for a RAW answer, or an answer of how we'd run it in our games?

comment How can a non-epic spellcaster create a Colossal animated object?
I don't think shrink would work. That has a maximum size of 2 cubic feet per level (40 cu.ft. max at level 20), and Colossal creatures are likely a few hundred cubic feet at least. The largest dimension of a Colossal object or creature is 64 feet, which is easily larger than the largest size a normal shrink item would allow.
