D&D Hall of Fame (in which Zachiel talks about how campaigns usually die early):

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! Aborted right after that.
My 3.5 Expedition to Undermountain - aborted when we got a 4e group again.
My 4e Thunderspire Labyrinth - Completed!
My 4e Pyramid of Shadows - Ongoing

comment Is there software for generating encounters for D&D 3.5e?
Please be aware that a random encounter generator like you're asking will usually be based on comparing challenge ratings, and challenge ratings are usually not a good way to choose enemies for your party (platinum horrors are CR9 monsters with at will disintegrate and there's a CR3 crab with huge armor and grapple modifiers, and those are just the infamous ones... while a grick has very low HP and is a CR3. Plus, your party might be unequippd to fight swarms, or flying creatures, making them much more hard to cope with)

comment How do you alter encounter difficulty in regards to decreased party size?
Losing a battle because someone couldn't show up for the game might cause some tensions... not every situation that the querent asked for is "making mistakes".

comment Is an out of sight enemy a problem for Warlock's Curse?
Invisible doesn't mean what you think it does. Invisible is just very hard to see, but you perfectly know where it is and can hit it, albeit at a penalty.

revised Will adding spells to the Duskblade Spell list unbalance play?
restored complete spell list, highlighting new ones, for easier power comparison and to easily spot very short spell lists

comment What are the best ways to move and full-attack in the same round?
Manyshot: "For every five points of base attack bonus you have above +6, you may add one additional arrow to this attack, to a maximum of four arrows at a base attack bonus of +16."

comment Short Swords or Hand axes?
@DanceSC the average damage added by improved critical to a sword and an axe is the same. If you need a high roll to hit, the sword starts having those "would be a critical threat but it missed" earlier, meaning it loses some damage to the axe.

comment Short Swords or Hand axes?
@DanceSC 0.1 chance * 2 extra weapon damage = 0.2 extra damage; 0.2 chance * 1 extra weapon damage = still 0.2 extra damage. Improved critical or keen and similar properties increase damage in the same way (the axe is then better if you hit with a 17 or more, for the same reason it's better if you hit only with a 20 without the feat)
