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!

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.

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.

comment Class Skill and Skill Focus as requirement for feat
@James: you might want to wait 2-3 days before accepting an answer. People might stop answering if they see there's already one accepted answer (they shouldn't, anyway) and theirs might be better than mine.

comment What do I have to roll to make a horse squeeze through a tight space?
I think the question was about the squeezing option (a large creature only taking 2 squares), not the extra-squeezing for which Escape Artist is needed. Am I right, @TheCartographer ?

comment Which feats fit this concept?
I checked. Disentangler has Wild Dwarf as a prerequisite, in addition to the regional requirements.

comment Getting bogged down in combat with Dungeon World
Usually, they do move for some reason. Getting in a more advantageous position, going out of reach, swarming a different character. That's something I'd treat as a soft move, or at least as part of a move. Sometimes moving is just what they do, maybe because some PC move says they must, maybe because it makes sense to have them just move. Your call, but most times the enemies are moving after engaging because they want to set up something nasty. Soft move. (All enemies repositioning? Still a soft move maybe)

comment What online chat or chat-like resource will work for my closed game?
My experience on IRC (mibbit specifically) tells me messages get lost after some hours or maybe some fixed numer of lines of text. Not ideal if you want to copy/paste it when you're done... unless someone is on a logging IRC software like mIRC.
