Drop by and say hi :)

Taught on 3.0, learned 3.5. DMed 3.5 for many years and love it still.

Favorite variants: Spell points, prestigious character classes, sorceror metamagic specialist, racial paragon classes, cloistered cleric, paladin of freedom, complex skill checks, weapon groups, craft points and summon monster variants.

Anyone playing in my game knows: Think outside the box, fear the rakshasa, demons are never your friend and a party that can't find traps will more often than not die by them.

Favorite DnD aspects: Roleplay and character personality development, long spanning adventures that convey useful things (tree of life, chakras... meaning), inventiveness and ingenuity.

Method Actor You think that gaming is a form of creative expression. You may view rules as, at best, a necessary evil, preferring sessions where the dice never come out of the bag. You enjoy situations that test or deepen your character's personality traits.

comment How can I secretly notate which squares on a combat map are traps?
+1 excellent call. I had casually assigned the kobolds eidetic memory, unwittingly, and this answer drew that into sharp focus. Plus, the symbol system is something the players can actually interact with--a big plus over what might seem like "blue lightning from the sky."

comment The players focus too much on NPCs and ignore the plot, what do I do?
+1 my party fled the Spider Slayers by dropping in on the Fantastic Four. Next time we went to them for help, only Johnny was there. Busy people doing busy stuff!

comment Do I lose access to a feat if ability drain results in no longer meeting the prerequisite?
@metool I offer KRyan's answer here: rpg.stackexchange.com/a/36327/4089 "Not able to cast spells of that level? You don’t get bonus spell slots of that level, because you do not meet the requirements for getting one."

@metool sure, so long as you're a high enough level to have access to those slots.

@Metool yes. " In addition to having a high ability score, a spellcaster must be of high enough class level to be able to cast spells of a given spell level." d20srd.org/srd/theBasics.htm#abilitiesAndSpellcasters
