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 - aborted when we got a 4e group again

In my book, "treated as slain" means "the same things I've just explained for slain creatures happen to this guy as well"

comment As a newbie DM, is it OK to borrow plots from MMOs for my game?
The "4e is closer to MMO games" usually refers to MMORPGs such as World of Warcraft, because of the classes being tied to roles in the tank/healer/DPSer trifecta. While MOBAs get roles and champions/heroes are usually tied to those roles (mid or feed, solo top, jungler, support, carry), there's not a common chassis to those classes like a parrying mechanic for all the tanks - which in 4e would be the presence of a mark or defender aura for defenders. While the answers you've been given are still ok, don't think LoL is ok because it's a MMO game. The two things are unrelated.

comment How can player characters restore a mostly-burned note?
Since we have characters of unknown classes, they might not have the Linguistic skill. I have no idea it this is a problem or not but I think it's worth noting.

comment How can I use improvised consequences to make combat more interesting?
+1 for mentioning page 42. D&D 4e already has rules for improvising.

comment How are damage penalties on melee attacks calculated?
The funny thing is I could have found the solution myself if I'd been searching that SRD page for "1/2" instead of for "half". This is it, exactly for the reasons I expected, and my friend who asked me thanks you very much.

comment Can Apocalypse World be played as a two-player game?
Additional hint: give them at lest two other GMPCs to play with. This way, you can have two different PC-NPC-GMPC triangles with opposing needs to make the world alive.

comment What stats do you use when buying an animal?
Unless your DM lets you find an advanced animal (with more HD and possibly bigger in size), yes, you need to look at the mai entry. Moreover, you can only use the base creature for familiars and animal companions, and never the advancedd versions.

comment When does a flurry of blows occur when attacking multiple enemies at once?
@telandor that's definitely a different question and you should ask it separately. Questions are free ;) (and comments can get deleted)
