Um. I am totally new to RPGs. I've only participated in ten or so campaigns. I suck as a player. My suckiness is magnified a thousand times over when I try to be a DM, or whatever you call it. Fortunately, I have patient friends.

I write the campaigns I run. I suck at that, too.

@wax eagle Ha! I asked myself the same thing when I finished. I didn't start writing thinking it was going to be that long.

comment What kind of monsters should I use against a monk in 4e?
Monks rely mainly on melee/touch attacks, so you need enemies that can either survive those attacks long enough to deal damage to the monk, or enemies who are difficult to reach. You might try a combination of characters. Maybe a couple high-hp baddies with reach weapons up front, teamed with some ranged guys who will be difficult for the monk to approach, due to terrain. Either/both the guys up front or/and the guys in back should have slowing, immobilizing, or dazing attacks, which would reduce the monks' effectiveness in his preferred attack-and-move or move-and-attack powers. Good luck!

Creating and adding "non-magical" tag. Is there a better way to word this? I'd like it to cover items, creatures, and environments.

comment How can a Rogue gets attacks in another player or monsters turn?
Could they action point a held standard for the above situation? Then they would get the sneak attack twice in a round. Not sure if that's allowed, though.

comment Is it possible to roll Stealth versus multiple targets when one or more can see you?
I've wondered about this before, too. If you're hidden from several enemies, can't the one who can see you can simply turn to the others and tell them where you are? "Hey, she's crouched behind that crate!" The others can't see you, but they know where you are. That doesn't seem the same as being "hidden." How would that affect combat advantage?
