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 Several damage reduction clarifications for Pathfinder
b) You're right about most DRs not giving the ability to bypass DR, but DR/Magic is a specific exception: "Such creatures' natural weapons (but not their attacks with weapons) are treated as magic weapons for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction."

comment Several damage reduction clarifications for Pathfinder
This answer is incorrect, on several counts. a) A +1 flaming burst longsword does not bypass cold iron/silver DR. The relevant quote is "Weapons with an enhancement bonus of +3 or greater can ignore some types of damage reduction, regardless of their actual material or alignment." and "Special abilities count as additional bonuses for determining the market value of the item, but do not modify attack or damage bonuses (except where specifically noted)." The weapon only has an enhancement bonus of +1, not +3. It counts as 3 for pricing, but no other purposes.

comment Fortifying & Defending a shop in a city
@Tridus: Very true, but the SBG is 3.0 content. If you have access to the Stronghold Builders Guide, that might change things a bit.

comment Fortifying & Defending a shop in a city
You make a lot of good points here, but I feel like you're sort of going overboard with a lot of it. Your "minimum necessary infrastructure" costs about 24000 gp for each 10-foot square section of wall. You also talk about covering large sections of area constantly with Anti-magic Fields, which is even more costly given that there is no way to make permanent Anti-magic Fields (in the RAW, at least). All of the specific defenses in this answer seems like "given infinite funds" things, and not "practical solution" things.

comment Does Pathfinder significantly fix known problems with the Monk class?
-1 There's a lot of non-relevant information here, mainly your third paragraph. The question is about if the monk is better in PF than in 3.5, not if PF is balanced.

comment Does the Brawl feat chain stack with the Combat Martial Arts feat chain?
Aha. I especially like this line, from the second link: "As an entirely unofficial house rule, I allow the benefits from Brawl and Combat Martial Arts to stack in my own games, and therefore those from Advanced Combat Martial Arts and Improved Knockout Punch would stack as well."

comment Does the Brawl feat chain stack with the Combat Martial Arts feat chain?
Do you still have a link to that official answer? I understand the reasoning, but there's nothing I can find in the rules to support it, and I'd be interested in seeing what the people who made the game say about it.
