D&D Hall of Fame (in which Zachiel talks about how campaigns usually die early):

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! Aborted right after that.
My 3.5 Expedition to Undermountain - aborted when we got a 4e group again.
My 4e Thunderspire Labyrinth - Completed!
My 4e Pyramid of Shadows - Ongoing

comment Why are the recommended DCs grouped by 3's?
@waxeagle using a homemade table by stalker0, I'm not familiar with RC's one. Feel free to edit that in.

comment How can I make D&D 4e work as a “play by post” game?
Addendum to point one: worst part is when you have powers that trigger on sepcific events, e.g. Immediate Reactions. The DM sends the description of a whole turn, a player reads it all including if people gets hit, then decides to cast an Immediate Interruption and changes what happens. Then the DM needs to start again from that point.

comment Flaw-provided feats VS class dips
@KRyan he'd be the second person you meet, since I think you met me before. 3.x's class system includes the penalties, which is more "be crafty and mix your levels in ways that don't actually activate the penalty".

comment Can you make a Spring Attack with a single standard action that includes both the attack and the movement?
The fun thing is that now it can't work on movement granted by, say, the Travel Devotion feat, since it's not a movement action.
