D&D Hall of Fame:

Singhi's 3.0 campaign - started at 1000 xp, vanished into nothingness at 2995 xp.
Paolo's 3.0 one-shot - too much DMPCing.
Luca's 3.0 campaign - started as a CoDM-PC, made a PC shortly after. Still no level ups.
My 3.0 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 random characters campaign - aborted after less than 10 minutes of play.
Pier'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! Kavu's 3.5 Daemonfey campaign
My 3.5 Expedition to Undermountain

comment How can a monk control a battlefield?
There's a feat to trip using Dex instead of Str. Wasn't tripping a weak tactic overall, I'd suggest that to slightly decrease the MADness. Wearing armor and dumping both wisdom and dexterity is another way to go but... why monk, then?

comment Enlarged Dragon Breath & Hurl Breath
Hurl Breath generates AoOs, while Enlarged Dragon Breath doesn't. If we exclude that your last sentence is right.

comment How can I explain balanced ability scores
Would "Some of my players don't seem to understand why they can't buy starting ability scores higher than 18 (pre-racial), what do I tell them?" be an on-point re-wording of your question? Just to know if I understood the question.

comment What are good books and implements to get started with DnD4?
I'd suggest Monster Vault instead of MM1, because MM1 and MM2 have an outdated monster design and MV contains more or less the same monsters but with the right math and approach.

comment Do you still roll a saving throw against effects that your character is immune to?
@KRyan In the absence of any explicit rules, I'd use the same rule that is used for extra effect on critical hits on immune creatures, whichever it was.

comment Do you still roll a saving throw against effects that your character is immune to?
Is there some underlying question, like "what if there is an additional effect on a failed save against a spell?". The way the question is now, it doesn't really matter if there is or not. Either you don't do it, you pass it or you fail it but ignore the results, with the same consequences.
