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 4e Keep on the Shadowfell. - Completed! Kavu's 3.5 Daemonfey campaign

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)

comment When does a flurry of blows occur when attacking multiple enemies at once?
@Telandor that depends on the specific rider of the Flurry of your monastic school, but you got the gist of it.

@clweeks As a player. MCs never roll dice. But the MC could write them.

-1. This answer does not cover the misunderstanding about monk's unarmed attacks becoming supernatural.

comment How is a ranged touch spell attack calculated?
@JonathanHobbs That last question was really part of the same problem, but the question title was misleadingly focusing on the to hit roll. I clarified to the best of my capabilities to encompass both in a single, valid question.

revised How is a ranged touch spell attack calculated?
made the question more understandable to the non-D&D people, aligned title with text.

comment Attributes - how to determine them in a setting-specific manner?
I feel this question is better suited to a discussion than to this format. Upon which criteria would you decide a better answer? I don't feel like there is one single valid way of determining a fitting set of attributes. What does fitting mean, after all? In addition, the topic is too broad: you're basically asking us how do people do game design, for every game out there. Maybe a Role-playing Games Chat discussion about game design principles would serve you better.
