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!

comment d&d 3.5 can anyone help understand how to make a monster race as a playable race?
@Ruut this has already been explained in the questions I linked in a previous comment (where I also explain which are the multiple closing reasons). I'd edit the question to have only question number 2 here but I fear the querent could lose track of where to find the replies to his ither questions.

comment How exactly does a level adjustment work?
DMG p.172, "Starting Level of a Monster PC": "Also use ECL with Table 5–1: Character Wealth by Level to determine starting wealth for a monster character.". P. 54 has the wealth gained through encounters be based on "party level", which is never clearly defined.

comment d&d 3.5 can anyone help understand how to make a monster race as a playable race?
I feel like the first two questions are definitely answerable (the third is someting I would not ask as a new player, and it's very broad and requires a detailed dissertation on how the currently existing LAs were assigned, which also makes it opinion based. I think that's better suited to our chat). An answer to the 1st question is already here and here so it'd be a duplicate. The 2nd question seems to be ok.

comment Two handed weapons in one hand
@HeyICanChan spiked chains are still reach weapons for small characters, due to how medium and small characters have both the same space and reach. I don't see why B, but I can see a DM houseruling that way.

comment Two handed weapons in one hand
The damage increase might not be worth the penalty but sometimes wielding two usually-two-handed weapons is nice. Double wielding small spiked chains anyone?

comment How to GM for a player who knows none of the tropes Dungeon World relies on?
I'd also add the 13th warrior. It felt very D&D-dungeon-ish when I looked at the mission part.

comment Starting Resources for the New Pathfinder Player
Be aware. The game is very complex and every group has some variation on how they apply the rules. Even if you find some way to play it before they teach you, it's easy to misunderstand some rules or learn rules they huseruled.

Well this is exactly what I was thinking at when I tought about the question, now let's see if someone can bring some evidence against this or supporting the other options.
