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.

My 3.5 Expedition to the Demonweb Pits. - Completed!

comment Is it possible to interrupt spellcasting in 5e?
@SevenSidedDie if reactions happen after triggers, I guess we can only ask each DM what counts as a trigger.

@SevenSidedDie because the rules don't allow for interruptions, and the proposed trick is turning a reaction into an interruption by wordplay.

comment I need help with making a were tyrannosaurus PC in Pathfinder
@ladyblight there are other, non-dinosaur ways to get dinosaur-like features, like a draconic tail or teeth. If you'd like to see them as well maybe ask it as a question.

Hi. I've tried to make your question a little more spot-on, including the items you mentioned in you comment. If you thing I swayed the question too much from its original intent feel free to roll it back (then edit your comments in the question yourself, comments will get deleted sooner or later)

Included comment into question, final line removed (this is not a hypotetical question but stems from a real problem: finding those items).

comment How can I stop being afraid of PC death as a GM?
don't trust the WOTC searcher or databases in general. People don't always register, they just meet and play.

comment How can I improve roleplaying as monsters during the encounters?
Let me understand better, is this about how, when it's your turn, you say "the monster throws a lance at you, do I hit with a 23? 13 damage, next" instead of "The monster growls - For Torog! - and throws a lance at you (do I hit with a 23?) and laughs maniacally as the point opens a wide gash in your flank. 13 damage, next"?

comment Improving AC and reflex defences in 4e
Better choices? Comments are not for extra questions and it wouldn't be good as a Question in our format (opinion-based), but you have enough reputation to join the Role-playing Games Chat, where such discussion is legit. Several 4e players hang out there, including me.

comment Counting damage against similar foes
@SevenSidedDie do really DMs say "ok I want a tough encounter, let's add some HP"? I would rather cast a bear's endurance on the guy or find out other ways to add to his HP, while rolling (and accepting poor results) or using the mean HP. To me, choosing HP would be akin to cheating on my players. Anyway, choosing usually has all the similar monsters in the encounter get the same HP, isn't it?

comment Counting damage against similar foes
Actually, the law of large numbers says that the more HD you add, the more it's probable that low and highs even up and the total HP is close to the mean. True, a 10 HD goblin could have 20 to 110 HP, but it'ss a bell curve and the probability of his HP being in the first 10th of the distribution is less than the 1/10 it was when he was first level.

comment “Slow” traps in the world of darkness
So your question is "how do I mechanically render a slow-moving, avoidable trap in this game?"
