comment How does a Beastmaster Ranger acquire his Animal Companion?
1) Get drunk. 2) Wander around in woods or other available wilderness. 3) Wake up days later with new animal companion.

comment Is there any way to cast non-cantrip spells without taking a level in a spellcasting class?
@BulrattheViking Taking a level in a spellcasting class is how the game represents being trained as a spellcaster. The feats KRyan mentioned basically boil down to "I once read a book about it".

comment Alternatives to Kevlar Vests ignoring AP of bullets
Negating 8 AP still sounds somewhat high. I might go with 2/4 or 3/6 rather than 4/8. Even the inserts won't help much against an anti-materiel rifle or a vehicle-mounted heavy machine gun (to say nothing of vehicle-mounted autocannons). Another approach might be to negate AP less than a certain value but do nothing against AP that meets or exceeds that value. So an AP3 attack becomes an AP0 attack, but an AP5 attack is still AP5.

Note also that simply coating a normal bullet with teflon reduces its ability to penetrate armor. Teflon coating is normally used on armor piercing ammunition because the harder metals used in those rounds can damage gun barrels.

comment Alternatives to Kevlar Vests ignoring AP of bullets
Making kevlar reduce AP rather than negating it is more realistic. The US military uses kevlar armor with hard plate inserts because kevlar alone isn't enough to stop a high-power rifle round except at long range.

comment How much fire damage would contact with/submergence in lava/magma/molten metal do?
This. 4e doesn't attempt to simulate the world; rather, for any given thing, that thing's mechanics are based on its role in the story.

comment Are there any benefits to being a small character?
@JonathonWisnoski 4e left out the explicit bonuses/penalties based on size that 3.5 had. Most small creatures have or can get special bonuses related to dodging, but they aren't mechanically tied to being small.

comment How can you achieve a significantly higher passive perception than your perception bonus + 10?
So your character is better at finding things when he's not looking for them?
