I've been playing Dungeons and Dragons (v 3.5) on and off now for about 10 years. Although I consider myself a novice DM and prefer playing to refereeing, DMing is most of what I do these days. I've slowly been building up reputation here by almost exclusively asking the somewhat obvious questions easily cleared up by the sites more experienced players, and hope to someday be knowledgeable enough to start answering some. That will likely involve branching out into some new RPGs, be it Pathfinder, or one of the FATE systems. If you have a system you'd like to trumpet the merits of, feel free to convince me the next time we bump into each other in chat.

comment How do I pick monsters of appropriate CR for parties with superior armour?
+1 for the two-part encounter idea, giving the players both their "armour satisfaction" and a real challenge! I will use this advice.

comment How do I pick monsters of appropriate CR for parties with superior armour?
An accurate observation, but I am trying to work with something the players are stoked about, as opposed to just taking it away for the sake of correcting my own mistake :) I have considered the use of monsters that work with touch attacks instead ....

Thanks for this idea. I'm also going to steal it!

Very true - realism is not a major feature of Eberron, but I like to add "medieval flavour" whenever the opportunity presents itself :)
