comment Is it appropriate to punish a player who snatches thing from under the other players?
+1 this. On first reading the question this came to mind and I'm glad you addressed it. RPGs are games for fun, not games for manipulation or control. We learn and practice social skills during. Passive aggressiveness should not be one of those skills.

comment How do I turn a NPC undead in a way that maintains all their abilities, feats, etc.?
@gatherer818 thanks. I do like the conciseness of the edit, but not the part where it doesn't give credit to KRyan for the correction.

comment Is there time after a free action triggers to use another free action before continuing?
This is how I read the rules as well, but I acknowledge that I've only gone so far as the PHB and DMG. +1

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

comment Early optimized/broken caster
Welcome. Please check out our tour found here: rpg.stackexchange.com/tour, it will show you what a Stack Exchange site like this one is and is not equipped to do. This prompt would work great on a message board but that's not what we are. Feel free to edit your question when you've got more specific, targeted requirements, though. As it currently stands all it will field is aimless suggestions instead of constructive problem-solving.

comment Is it legal to “use” (reference) copyrighted material in a way that requires ownership of its original publication?
@KRyan not at the moment. Do they consider classes/mechanics to fall under copyright or trademark? Technically they're both a design and a literary work -- will come back to this when I've time next.

@KRyan On the trademark section, you're correct. It seems to me, then, that either one of two things occurs: The OGL has nothing to do with anything other than itself (which makes the question much less RPG-specific), or copyrighted material is handled as though it were Product Identity (and the OGL would still matter).

Copyright law is a tricky thing. A huge portion of my business law class was devoted to it. +1

comment Can Mass Lesser Vigor be persisted?
@Shf The feat extends the duration "to 24 hours," and in general in 3.5 specifics trump general statements. It's a property of the Persistent Spell feat that durations become 24 hours, and there aren't explicit exceptions made for spells with capped durations. Your GM, if they choose to disregard that, is in fact houseruling.

comment How can I keep the Tarrasque “dead”?
@ArleCamille I agree with the existence of this question, no need to be defensive. Note the lack of close votes cast :) the other question's answers only barely touched on PF. I've not a lot of PF experience but how I read it is that PF presents it's own challenges in regards to the Tarrasque, distinct from D&D in general.

Related: rpg.stackexchange.com/q/4490/4089. Almost a duplicate, if not for the fact that the other answers there largely neglect Pathfinder.

+1 recycling is awesome. Twenty characters, slightly tweaked, can really go a long way.
