D&D Hall of Fame (in which Zachiel talks about how campaigns usually die early):

Singhi's 3e campaign - started at 1000 xp, vanished into nothingness at 2995 xp.
Paolo's 3e short adventure - too much DMPCing.
Luca's 3e campaign - started as a CoDM-PC, made a PC shortly after. Still no level ups.
My 3e campaign - aborted three rooms from the end.
Marco's 3.5 7-PCs-campaign - aborted for scheduling problems. Still no level ups.
Marco's intro to RttToEE - gave DMing right to me after 2 sessions. Arbitrary leveling up between those.
My 3.5 Return to the Temple of Elemental Evil - TPK'ed at level 8/9.
Marco's 3.5 all manuals campaign - aborted for excessive PC firepower. Guess what.
Marco's 3.5 premade characters campaign - aborted after less than 10 minutes of play.
Pierluigi's 4e Keep on the Shadowfell - gave DMing rights to me before I could level.
My 3.5 Expedition to the Demonweb Pits - Completed!
My 3.0 City of the Spider Queen - Completed!
My 4e Keep on the Shadowfell - Completed!
Cau's 3.5 Daemonfey Apocalypse campaign. First true level up ever! Aborted right after that.
My 3.5 Expedition to Undermountain - aborted when we got a 4e group again.
My 4e Thunderspire Labyrinth - Completed!
My 4e Pyramid of Shadows - Ongoing

comment Does an “acid” Burning Hands still set things on fire?
Unfortunately, there's a disconnect between "fluff" (the bits of text that explain what a feature does in plain text) and "crunch" (game rules explanation of the actual effects). Burning hands does not become acid spray. Burning hands [Fire] becomes burning hands [Acid], changing nothing else in its description except for damage type and spell subschool. Looking at D&D rules by supposing they should make sense is a quick way to get headaches.

comment Optimizing a grappler druid build
You're trying to get extraordinary wildshape, you clearly have something in mind (which would probably work even with shapechange, but you really want as many nature warrior levels as possible, I guess). What do you plan to wildshape into?

comment A Technical EL Problem in D&D3.5
You said IssamTP's calculations were ok but the automatic calculator gives different results. Hey I Can Chan's answer has why (and points out that the difference grows with levels)

comment A Technical EL Problem in D&D3.5
I can't pinpoint where but there must be something wrong in calculations, since the Encounter Calculator gives different results.

comment Ways for a Sorcerer to cast Spells he doesn't “know”
@Andy I have no idea, but the DM thinks it is (in a game where every character gets more feats and the sorcerer has one more, like in Pathfinder)

comment Ways for a Sorcerer to cast Spells he doesn't “know”
@Andy in the game I'm in, each character can use a single knowstone for each spell level.

comment Breaking size limitation for lycanthropy
I'm now really tempted to post a copy of this, changing just a few lines: "Note that id Hey I Can Chan's DM ever pits his PC against [...], I am not deleting this answer." XD

comment Help with an Archer/Ranger advancement
Never completely trust the D&Dwiki. Moon elves, as defined in the forgotten realms setting, have wizard as their favored class. +2 dex -2 con. The ones you're looking at are some sort of homebrew material (category: user)

comment Can you negotiate with the DM about inspiration?
Maybe I'm nitpicking here but... isn't what you're asking still about when (after the event or before), at least for 1+2 vs. 3? I have no idea which questons you looked at but by a wild guess I'd use "how often" and "when/how" as your bolded words. Would that be right?
