comment Armor and weapon enhancments
Presumably a benefactor rich enough to sponsor an adventuring group has MW and or +1 items pretty much on command, or can send someone shopping in the district for it. No real game mechanics necessary.

comment Is there a map for the feywild equivalent of Faerûn?
@DaviBraid - Just do a google image search for Feywild, that's where I sourced this, and there are dozens of maps available.

comment How can I get around the drow's light sensitivity?
He did not live there because of the light. When he came to the surface, he lived for a few years in between Sundabar and another city and then in Montolio's grove. He settled in Icewind because a bounty hunter chased him there and it was a place where a drow could be tentatively accepted. And you have obviously also never been snowblind.

comment Tiefling Sorcerer with Dragonic bloodline?
Once again, SSD beat me to the punch with an answer :p Here's what I was adding: From a quick search, it appears that it is while not common, it is not rare. The reasoning that I found was taken from the 3.5 edition book. Fiends can breed with anything except celestials, and dragons really have no restrictions. Teiflings are descended from fiends, and dragonborn from dragons, so it is not unreasonable to have a draconic heritage somewhere in a tiefling family.

comment Starting a new 4e adventure with an old character. How should I handle treasure/equipment?
In theory, there shouldn't have been a major difference in treasure between a character played from 1 to level 8 and a character created as level 5 and played to 8.

The best and worst thing you can do to a character that wishes for something is to give it to them.

comment How do you adjudicate a wall run?
Wall run to point A, leap to wall B as you fall off, lather rinse repeat. The question is, will the encounter mask the sound or will the enemies hear/locate him?

Also, since you now have enough rep, you can ask more open ended discussion type questions in chat if you need to.

Well written with example math, and a cautionary reference to boot. Nicely done!

comment What do I do when no rules cover what players improvise, and I don't know from real life?
x2 on the first sentence. Try being a wizard with a low wisdom, and telling your DM you're going to use a touch spell on a gas spore.

comment What should I do about a not-so-good dungeon master?
Do you mean he makes his character up? Are you talking about a non player character, or is he also running a character in the dungeon?

comment Do critical failures always act as event triggers?
Rolemaster has fumble tables. The book "Arms Law" contains both critical hit and fumble tables (BTW, some of these are absolutely hilarious), and there are instructions on how to convert for D&D and other D20 systems. So while that is system specific, to blanketly state "d20 System doesn't have fumble" is not quite correct.

comment What are the long term consequences of adding new negative quality during play
If you haven't seen BTVS, another good treatment is the detective Robert Goren on Law&Order: Criminal Intent, played by Vincent D'Onofrio. The gradual eroding of a borderline personality is done masterfully by D'Onofrio. Each season he gets just a little more edgier until all of a sudden you realize "Wow, what a messed up whackjob!"

comment What are the long term consequences of adding new negative quality during play
I also don't know the rules so I won't give it as an answer, but you could always use it as the basis for other story arcs/complications. One of the better ones I've seen on television in recent years was Joss Whedon's handling of the character Willow on Buffy:TVS. She slowly descended into the lure of magic, doing more and more morally questionable things, until a redemption arc in season 6 where she played "the big bad" of the season. There's nothing wrong with a little descent into grit, as long as you eventually give them an out.
