comment Where do I find how much XP is required to level up in 3.5e?
When playing 3.5, my own group created a "quick reference" print out of all the important charts from the Player's Handbook and DMG. It was 3 pages, double sided. They made it so hard to find anything in that edition.

comment Adventures or campaigns involving dragon antagonists
No, most of the dragons in Dragonlance mentioned by name are major antagonists in the story. For instance, Khisanth the black dragon in Xak Tsaroth, essentially ruled the city and was mount to no one. While others were mounts, they were also major antagonists. For example, Kitiara's blue dragon, Skie, often influenced things, both in dragon and human forms.

comment The Stack'O'Mounts
While I love the question and Jack's answer, if I were GM, I would probably have to rule that only the mammoth is actually acting as a mount in your 4-stack and the gorilla is the one controlling it and the one that would have to make the ride checks and so forth to control the mammoth. The half-orc and gnome would merely be passengers or baggage, with no actual mounts. Either that or I would impose a serious ride check penalty that would be cumulative going up the stack (i.e. -10 for the orc, -20 for the gnome) to actually have any real control over the stack.

comment Is a Hellknight honor bound to challenge a Paladin to a duel?
We do actually run this in a custom Forgotten Realms world rather than Golarion. But I will definitely check up more on Hell Knights. Haven't studied them all that much yet. Was more going on some of the text from the module.

comment What is the best way to do search, or spot test when players knowing the result of their roll will colour their perception of the result?
I can see your point on confidence, but I'd probably keep it the way I envision it on that point. Modifiers just add to or subtract from the level of confidence.

comment How should I handle PCs using a humanoid creature for a living shield?
A goblin is a small creature. As DM, I'd probably rule this as a +1 shield bonus for a single PC (the one holding him) and that's about it.

comment Can a PC be any monster from the MM?
Speaking as one who's character was turned into a bodak and played as that for a couple months, anything is possible.

comment How can I reduce crunch for my players without putting all pressure on the GM?
If you're players aren't willing, or able, to put in the effort, you really should find another system. Taking it on yourself is just asking for long term misery. Pathfinder is not that complicated for anyone who is a veteran of dice based RPGs, and simpler than many of the others out there.

comment How do antimagic fields protect locations?
Excellent answer. I'd add one minor point. The spells that are listed in the books for spellcasters are designed to be a list of what can be cast on the fly and on the road, not a comprehensive list. A spell cast over an entire prison, for example, would likely be something that is prepared and cast over a period of days, weeks, or even months, with requisite increases in materials and costs. That would, to me as a GM, be sufficient of itself to justify the much larger area of effect and allow for the addition of permanency to be implemented.
