comment What GM tasks can be delegated to players to speed up encounters?
Delegating rules look-ups has saved me quite a lot of time. Tom is my rules guy, and he has a copy of PHB (and now Compendium) with lots of flags for relevant sections. It's probably the best time-saver of all the delegation I've done.

Huh! Back in the days of 1E and 2E, we rolled initiative once per combat, but a review of rules shows that we were not following them. I wonder how that came about. Thanks!

comment How can I successfully run one-on-one adventures in D&D 4E?
The dwarf could get his second wind as a free -- but it's not important to me, as I'm running a human-only campaign. YMMV. ;)

...and I feel really motivated, now, to work on one-PC striker scenarios that favor a thief/assassin type. Stealthily engage minions, using sneak attack to drop them before they can coordinate a response...

I was so sure, when first thinking about it, that strikers would be the way to go, but you are one of many people I've seen say that strikers don't work well alone. -- As for healing, what if second wind was made a minor action, and maybe if a third wind was allowed in solo play?

Multiclassing! Why didn't I think of that? Clearly, an excellent idea -- although hard to suggest to existing characters. Maybe I'll gently encourage new characters to consider multiclass feats, hybrid classes, and classes with secondary roles.
