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.

comment What happens to the current hit points when Aid ends?
I doubt he will by his own accord, if he has not understood this was the problem. In my experience when people give you an answer that's not on target they believe the problem is solved and stop thinking about it.

comment What happens to the current hit points when Aid ends?
Mr. Mearls does not seem to have really understood the concern. It's not about the maximum (max xp going down while still at full life) that we're worried, rather the opposite (does current XP go down as well when the effect ends?)

comment How can a wizard maximize the area of bursts and blasts?
Would being a dragonborn with the dragonsomething rod (level 4 implement) help or is it worded in a way that's incompatible with your needs?

comment How do you boil a level 30 PC down to an easily accessible NPC or game mechanic?
I recall seeing a class called "leader" that was intended to be played as a mercenary healer for a party lacking it (every PC role had one). They have simplified mechanics but of course you'd need to build her from scratch, would this be an ok answer for you?

comment How do I deal with a player who takes things personally?
Maybe tell the other players what you're doing and what, so he can't get their sympathies.

comment Does magic armor automatically resize?
@Arkhaic Elves are generally smaller than a human - except for Forgotten Realms elves (but not drow), who are the same height) - and thinner. A cloak made for an elf might be suited for a petite human female or a young man, not for your burly blacksmith-looking warrior.

comment Does magic armor automatically resize?
@dphil yeah, I was looking for the general case here. My question's scope was to check the correctness of some contested info in an answer I gave here on the site and I did not care about other ways to resize armor. I just wanted to know if making it magical would have been enough.

comment Make NPCs hard to interrogate
My fault, mental control has it as an explicit exception: if the commands conflict, the casters make charisma checks to decide who wins. Disregard my previous, I say again, disregard my previous.
