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!
My 3.5 Expedition to Undermountain - aborted when we got a 4e group again.
My 4e Thunderspire Labyrinth. - Ongoing.

comment How can I gain an attack of opportunity when a creature moves INTO reach?
Do you, as a group, consider D&D 3.X material to be compatible with Pathfinder?

Oh, you as in your character gets then turns, then? Because in that sspell duration 100 turns happen.

comment Puzzled about buff durations
Are you telling us there are spells with their duration expressed in turns? (I guess you wanted to say you'd get the same ten rounds before the spell expires, even in a ten-man brawl)

comment How can I learn how to lay out an “evidence scene”?
@JimKiley ah, I understand now. I contrappose it to the improvisionational stories born from games such as Dogs in the Vineyard or Apocalypse World, where there is a starting situation but no scenes can be pre-planned.

@JimKiley care to expand with some reference? My ST is still doing it that way (and his games keep being great, so it's not something I'm dissing)

comment Our ranger has too many skill ranks for his skills
@mcv favored class in 3.5 is the one class you don't count when looking for XP penalties for multiclassing.

comment Give when you can't see a violent raise
Ciao Domon and welcome to StackExchange! I'm afraid that, while Vincent is the author of the game and as a primary source his word is to be trusted, it'd be better if you made a page reference to the text supporting your answer, be it in the rules or in some forum.

comment Do 4E Essentials Mages gain more Cantrips after 1st level?
Being them At-Wills, you don't really need to know more than 1 (2 is for some variety): you never run out of them. This is true for every D&D 4e class (except psionics, but psionics use slightly different mechanics). So, it's not like you will get stuck with no spells and be "underpowered"

comment Can one win points for acting both for and against belief in a session?
@Mołot knowing if there's some rule preventing it is, I think, the core of the question.

@waxeagle using a homemade table by stalker0, I'm not familiar with RC's one. Feel free to edit that in.

comment How can I make D&D 4e work as a “play by post” game?
Addendum to point one: worst part is when you have powers that trigger on sepcific events, e.g. Immediate Reactions. The DM sends the description of a whole turn, a player reads it all including if people gets hit, then decides to cast an Immediate Interruption and changes what happens. Then the DM needs to start again from that point.

comment Flaw-provided feats VS class dips
@KRyan he'd be the second person you meet, since I think you met me before. 3.x's class system includes the penalties, which is more "be crafty and mix your levels in ways that don't actually activate the penalty".

comment Can you make a Spring Attack with a single standard action that includes both the attack and the movement?
The fun thing is that now it can't work on movement granted by, say, the Travel Devotion feat, since it's not a movement action.

@Betsy that looks like a good separate question.

Isn't 2.25 tons of gold going into epic and thus costing 10x more?

comment What to do when my players want vanilla?
Hard to say without knowing yours and your friends' motives. Of course you have the usual "find other players" and "adapt" but those are not the answers you're looking for, is it?

comment Which multiclass to choose for melee-damage-dealing mage when starting from Wizard 5 / Fighter 1
Ah, you have abjuration as one of your forbidden schools. That's unfortunate. If you want to wield a weapon while polymorphed, you want to reach at least 16 BAB by level 20 (supposing your campaign lasts that long) which means you either go for the feat that lets you cast spells from a domain, choose war domain and get Incantatrix 3 to persist Divine Power (you need 14 wisdom, but items can help you) or lose caster levels or lose attacks per round. Anyway, you're aiming at wizard (or equivalent) 17

comment A question about Celerity spells
If 1 worked, 2 would be "wait, I want to use a standard action to ready a counterspell"
