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 Does the freedom of movement spell allow you to ignore the max dexterity bonus on armor?
@MatthieuM. Since the needed +1 enhancement bonus does not stack with magic vestment, the total bonus in your comment should be AC 6.

comment Adamantine Hurricane and Wolf Pack Tactics interaction clarification
@KRyan this is because intiating is a D&D keyword and not the common word for "starting", right?

comment Are there rules for sacrificing living creatures for personal gain?
As a side note, there's also a weapon enhancement that only works if people are sacrificed to it

comment In which book does Tordek mention a “+3 weapon”?
I know it's not the best answer, and I wouldn't have asked it if someone didn't sugges me to, and I'm sorry for the wild goose chase but hey, this is not what too broad is for. It's probably just a question to be left unvoted.

Of course, that's why all this looking for weapons didn't bear (or beard, since we're talking about dwarves) any result.

comment Ways to boost a low HP character in D&D 3.5
Magic item compendium's amulet of tears also adds some temp HP every day. I've seen it used to buff regular horses, I can't wee why not using it on a wizard.

comment Are there poltergeist-like undead in D&D?
Just a guess on why: whis is trying to solve the problem behind the question (and I applaud you, because this looks like a new player with not much understanding of the system's possibilities and confines), but it doesn't answer the question itself: "Is there a low HP, invisible undead he can command?"

comment Are there poltergeist-like undead in D&D?
There's a somewhat high chance that a monster actually called poltergiest exists in D&D and that its abilities are very different from those you want. For example, was it modeled over Castlevania poultergeists or over Pilgrim Jaeger ones, it'd be too powerful for a low level clercic to command. You'd better ask us for some requirements without a name or clearly stating what's your references (e.g. "In classical undead tales, P. are weak invisible and mischievous undead - on that line, I'm looking for..."). Also remember that invisible is not the same as incorporeal in D&D 3.5e

Don't you also take that damage, hitting the ground?

comment Does interrupting sleep to keep watch prevent any healing at all?
Animal companions are not magical beasts. They are animals.

comment How do you tell someone you think they are cheating?
What I wanted to convey is that, if the player goes for the "next game, I want to DM" he needs to pay some special attention (I happened to have a DM who changed the rulings and my character building assumptions made for a bad character)

comment Human Sorcerer, Merfolk sorcerer, and Favored Class Bonuses; and is there any way to get access to the Human Class Bonus while being a non-human?
Does merfolk classify as human-descended race, though?

comment How do you tell someone you think they are cheating?
Pay atention when DMing. Them having expectations about rules working in a different way might make you look like a bad DM when you start your campaign.

@Mrlemon See Hey I Can Chan's answer for why that isn't an improvised weapon (even if it behaves similarly)

@KRyan such as me, as usual ;)

comment How do I handle Arcane Spell Failure?
@Kryan the feat reads (twice) "If you add a handful of snow or ice as an additional material component to a spell when you cast it". By taking eschew materials, that if is gone.

comment How do I handle Arcane Spell Failure?
If you're using Eschew Material, you're not using snow to power your spells, so I don't think Snowcasting activates.

comment Broken links in the community-made Tome of Battle Build Compendium
As your problem is a general problem that's true for all of WotC's 3.5e pages, I'm removing tome-of-battle, hoping to attract more people.

comment How can I make a Pathfinder campaign like the Monster Hunter video game series?
D&D isn't "the best start" exactly because it's the grandfather of RPGs. Almost every edition was written with the assumption that you came from a wargame background, or from previous D&D edition, and have some idea about how the game has to be played and how to make it click. Not every non-D&D game is made for RPG newbies, but some do go great lenghts to explain the mindset, the scope and the techniques needed to enjoy it. (Asking for a game that does this might be a good idea.) D&D is just the 800 pound gorilla, and every edition I know rewards mastery of a huge, "shopping list" game system.

comment Is there a rules light game which supports classless characters, simple and tactical combat, and the game master running a GMPC?
I understand your concern with "we're too few and we need a third PC so I, as the Dm will play one". Are games that are viable with only two playing characters a good alternative to "give me a game where I can have a GMPC"?
