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 Low-Light, Darkvision and nightfall
There's a ranger version of the darkvision spell (superior? improved?) that gives Darvision up to sight range. This is also better than Low-light vision

comment Specific Items In A Group Social Contract?
To be noted that line and veils, when they were first introduced, were meant to come up during play (and nobody would expect you to have a comprehensive list of things you don't wanna, only to later play "this wasn't in the list so it must be ok")

comment Is there a class in D&D 3.5e similar to the 4e warden?
Sadly, he wants to avoid any dips or multiclassing.

comment Building a striker
@Kiraya due to the almost non-existant ties between fluff and mechanics, refluffing is a great tool for playing the concept you want in 4e, provided your DM agrees. Anyway, non-arcane feylock (fey pact warlock) has teleport and invisibility right from level one.

comment Countermeasures against a Diplomancer
I guess one can be so confident about his diplomatic skills to go in, -sure- he isn't going to be scathed. A bit of an ego addict, but isn't it true that extreme confidence is a large part of what we call charisma?

comment How does Blood Crow Strike really work?
@Sam if you click the share button below his post you will get a link you can repost. This way, you also give us some visibility and this increases the number of people who can ask and reply here, which is, I think, good for everyone here and there.

Beware homophones. To sense = to perceive. Since = seeing that.
