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.
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!

Does this answer to your question? Do you feel the two questions are duplicate and need merging? Tell us.

answered What about “Save-or-Die” spells makes them so powerful? Are they balanced as is, or require tweaking?

comment Without a magic item economy, what is gold for?
"Once you've got the top level wands, magic armor, vorpal swords and a stockpile of wondrous items (which won't take long), doesn't gold become sort of worthless?" There's never too much gold for buying magic items for yorself in 3.5e. Buy more Belts of Battle, Pearls of Power IX, Metamagic Rods of Quicken, Greater, epic items ad so on.

comment Great Old One Warlocks: Ways to Counter Create Thrall
I would ask for things such as "which are the methods for dealing with this that work in your experience?" that can be answered with a list. Asking "which are all the methods ..." is asking too much for me. Like, go search all the books (now it's a few chapters, but in the future?)

1) is a list request and we don't work well with lists.

comment Is there a rule of thumb for when “help” is better than making an attack?
If an attacker has such a huge gap that he only hits with a 20, getting advantage is more or less a 5% increased chance to hit. Losing disadvantage, on the other hand, improves the chances of getting that hit by almost 95%

Also, no point helping someone who already has at least one advantage.

comment Meld Into Stone would fail if I have living spell components in my pouch?
@MatthewNajmon ah you meant to implement both limits. That might be ok.

comment Meld Into Stone would fail if I have living spell components in my pouch?
@MatthewNajmon because I don't want someone to meld into stone while carrying, say, a tree.
