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.
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!
My 3.5 Expedition to Undermountain - aborted when we got a 4e group again.
My 4e Thunderspire Labyrinth. - Ongoing.

revised What objective criteria can I use to restrict carrying multiple large weapons besides weight?
expanded acronym since it's not used in its usual context

comment Is there a rule of thumb for when “help” is better than making an attack?
If an attacker has such a huge gap that he only hits with a 20, getting advantage is more or less a 5% increased chance to hit. Losing disadvantage, on the other hand, improves the chances of getting that hit by almost 95%

Also, no point helping someone who already has at least one advantage.

comment Meld Into Stone would fail if I have living spell components in my pouch?
@MatthewNajmon ah you meant to implement both limits. That might be ok.

comment Meld Into Stone would fail if I have living spell components in my pouch?
@MatthewNajmon because I don't want someone to meld into stone while carrying, say, a tree.

I'd say smaller than Diminutive. This way, no creature can ever qualify. I'd use the same wording for antilife shell, by the way.

comment What happens when you have two races?
How can your character be a human while being an eladrin? To determine what happens we need to know what caused it (and if the only way is homebrewing, we can't help you)

comment What is the point of a spell component pouch?
...or when a fighter sunders your spell components pouch.

comment How to avoid arguments with a player about what “should” happen?
I know, but I was trying to start simple and end with the complex things. I'm doing a slight edit but if somebody can suggest me a way to move that to the top while mantaining the thread of the conversation I'd be glad to reshuffle my paragraph.
