D&D Hall of Fame:

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.

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.

comment Epic 3.5 Warblade Optimization
@Gainesja A targeted disintegration to the blade would bypass Spellblade, since that only protects from things that target you.

comment How do I upgrade older D&D adventures to 5th edition?
Isn't the more damage only true at lower levels? D&D 3.5e, for instance, has very high damage comboes even for mundanes, easily scoring over 200 damage on a single hit on a charge. While it's true, no published adventure that I know is calibrated to that optimization level, your sentence as is isn't true.

All the rules I used are in the Listen skill description I've linked. I've also taken some time to cover some other common situations.

comment What should be the DC to identify monster vulnerabilities?
I suggest you to use the HD of the monster version with lower HD. A human skeleton is common enough to have a lower DC, a huge skeleton is still a skeleton and should have the same DC. The only thing I don't treat this way is dragons, with their scaling abilities according to their age category.

comment How to master a game where the player group is not a group IG
Unfortunately, it looks like you've missed a whole lot of RPGs out there. There are lots of titles that break the D&D/Vampire/Werewolf trope of playing people in a group, from Trollbabe or Don't Rest Your Head (where the players take turns and the characters might never meet) to Apocalypse World or Dogs in the Vineyard, where the game works if there's intra-"party" conflict. Maybe we could meet in the Role-playing Games Chat to shed some light on the state of the art before asking questions with premises like this one, shall we?
