By day (and night, far too often) I'm the Operations Manager at Digital Motorworks.

Most of the rest of the time I'm with my family or gaming, or thinking about gaming.

Currently playing a 14th level Shifter Paladin in a 4th edition DnD campaign. I'm also just starting to run a campaign of my own.

Would you position be that any slide/push due to the lasso should require a feat? (You could also create your own answer with this, I think its a valid point)

Correct, he just wanted to pull them away from danger. The PC's were dominated, but that isn't quite as debilitating in 4e as it was previously. I think they wouldn't have to fight off the lasso even while dominated.

@AceCalhoon - what you're saying is true, however I think with the small sample sizes that @yhw42's suggestion is valid. If you're only looking at one night, you want to get as much data as you can.

comment Can Elven Accuracy be Used to Reroll a Summoned Creature's Attack?
I respect your opinion but I find it hard to gloss over the phrase "The summoner makes an attack" To me, that means that the summoner makes the attack, the summoned critter is just the conduit.

Read the blog post I pointed to. It sets a new direction for subjective questions/answers. I'm not positive that it led to the downvoting, but I think it might be related.

I have voted to close this. I think there is a good question in there, but it needs some work. See this (very)recent blog post that explains how subjective questions can be phrased better - blog.stackoverflow.com/2010/09/good-subjective-bad-subjective

It would probably be better to ask for folks to respond with games/settings that they have personally played.

comment What is a good way to become a better NPC/monster actor?
I need to try and remember this advice! I would emphasize ONE thing. Trying to create a full blown persona for even a limited set of NPCs can be overwhelming for all but the best actors. My most successful NPCs have been simple. The party will pick up on the differences and appreciate it.

Do you have any particular game in mind? To me "setting" means a pre-built campaign world, possibly with custom rules that is created for a certain game.
