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 Are there zones that affect shadow weavers the way dead magic zones affect regular weavers?
Not an answer yet, but I recall a spell that makes holes in the shadow weave exists in 3.x

comment Can you use spell-like abilities in a grapple?
@SevenSidedDie fixed. But it's from any damage duringe spellcasting, right? Readied action against casting, for instance.

comment Ideas on a PvP campaign
Unlike severa other sites and forums on the internet, Stackexchange works best with very defined questions about specific problems. Any question asking for opinions or possibly infinite lists (i.e. any question that does not have a single "right" answer) is not suited for our format. Take the tour and read our help center for more info on how the site works

Reconsidered some thing because of the other answers and comments.

comment Is there a fantasy RPG system which does not try to be old-school?
I always feel that "yes, we have stats that are only useful when they are even, but you don't have the option to make them odd" contrasts with point 4). Many things in the game are made for it to be recognizable as a D&D 3e heavy hack.

comment Can you use spell-like abilities in a grapple?
You emphazised the part of text on SLAs that talked about attacks of opportunities and casting defensively, which is not relevant to the question. The sentence I bolded in my edit, though, could be a good reason to ask the concentration check for SLAs too.

comment Movement and sight
I have some torches and a light spell, which both have a range of 5. I see from the other question that there's no explicit rulings on this and I'll go to the chat to ask for opinions on my (slightly different) situation.

comment What's the attack of opportunity for a monk
@Stef you might want to unaccept this answer and wait a pair of days before (eventually) accepting it again. When an answer gets accepted what usually happens is that no more answers get posted, because a "winner" has already been chosen.
