reads post again. Well, uh... yes, yes you did. My apologies.

comment Does a non-magical character have any options to fight a swarm without fire?
Though I disagree on the notion that damage-deal spells are 'bad', I agree that they are generally not the optimal way of doing things. I do agree, however, that Rouges should max UMD - not only is it a good skill, Rouges should always have options - wands give lots of options. Magic Items give similar options. Investing in a few items that have 3/day or 5/day on a spell or two each is usually a mix of cheap and effective, and you don't have to wear them.

What level are you? Is not carrying magical items a character aspect, or just because you haven't acquired any good shininess yet? Tbh, to hear of a Rouge that isn't loaded to the gills with options is a bit strange to me. I suggest carrying lots of wands around, with various different spells in them. Wands are light, limited in spell level ( i.e. no significant magic auras ), and can give a Rouge a lot of options.

comment Tips for keeping track of NPC stats and conditions
Depending on how good your handwriting is, I found that simple 3x5 notecards are extremely useful. Blank side is a picture or description, lined side is stats ( finding 5x3 cards is harder, but works better ).

Thank you very much! It was hidden in the difficulty section, not the description. R&E has the equivalent on pp. 147.

comment Can a Warmage make his own spells?
To be clear, you are talking about a run-of-the-mill, level 0-9 spell, correct? Not an epic spell?

comment What modifiers are and are not included in a DnD 3.5e critical hit?
Agreed. Unless a dice bonus says explicitly that it is multiplied on a critical hit, it is not. Basic numeric bonuses ( i.e. morale, Strength mod, magic +X bonus, etc. ) are multiplied.

comment Grappling interactions with Greater Grapple
@starwed - Well, normally you take a move action before a standard action. This specifies 'maintaining' a grapple as a move action, not necessarily initiating a grapple. I'm not sure what specifically feels odd about it - it might just be my DM instincts telling me this is powerful.

comment Grappling interactions with Greater Grapple
@starwed - nothing specific, just wanted to see some alternate interpretations, if others had them. It did not seem as clear cut to me.
