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 Is the product of the Heavens Mystery revelation “Coat of Many Stars” a valid target for Magic Vestment?
@G0BLiN Quoting from your link: "[...] enhancement bonuses to armor or natural armor effectively increase the armor or natural armor's bonus to AC"

@rojomoke No, Magic Vestement would give your dress an Enhancment bonus to their starting Armor bonus of +0, effectively giving you two items with a positive armor bonus. To have them add up you'd need to cast the Vestment spell on the effect giving you the Armor bonus, to increase it thanks to the Enhancement bonus.

Things don't need to be armor to grant you Armor bonuses and *a magica effect that mimics armor" is, by definition, not an armor. Claudius Maximus's reference to the 13th level property explicitly calling it armor works better to me.

Targeting what you're wearing would get you two different, non-stacking sources of Armor bonus.

@Ruut why adding further, arbitrary points of failure?

comment The half-elf: is it balanced?
PF's half elves have a +2 bonus, but then again every race in PF has a +2 bonus on top of those it had on 3.Xe

comment Decreasing Enemy Base Health
MM3 has loads of different, less usual monsters. You're probably looking for Monster Vault that has the past-MM3 version of classic monsters.

comment Which items can I use to boost my hit chance?
@BrianS the book could be a good idea. On the other items, Joshua is right.

comment Which items can I use to boost my hit chance?
I'm actually the DM and this is the character of a player with awful English skills. Should I rewrite the question from my point of view, or otherwise state that Zachiel is "my DM"?

I thought I would never had to hear about ISO benchmarks after my graduation paper. I was wrong.

comment Is it appropriate to tell players the expected outcome of a throw?
Does this answer to your question? Do you feel the two questions are duplicate and need merging? Tell us.

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.

I'd say smaller than Diminutive. This way, no creature can ever qualify. I'd use the same wording for antilife shell, by the way.
