I make software. I live in Pennsylvania. I would like another beer.

comment How can I use 4E's strengths in a low-combat game?
Thanks, these are all helpful suggestions. They also make my shake my fist at the sky that it's such a pain (or impossible) to house rule characters in the new character builder...

comment How do you transition from 1-page dungeon map to battle mat?
Thanks. One of the players did mention having a projector, but I thought it would be impractical. That page makes it look at least worth considering!

comment How do you transition from 1-page dungeon map to battle mat?
I could, but the problem is that Tact-Tiles, while really nice in many ways, are dry-erase, and will lose their markings in transit. Arriving early is something to look into. I've also wondered whether wet-erase maps might not be a good investment so that I can prep at home.

comment What software is available for virtual table tops?
I've recently come to use Gametable, too. The feature set, in my opinion, is pretty small, and that's a big plus. There isn't much to learn, and it's the most like using a tabletop mat that I've seen. I don't feel like I need to do a lot of prep work, I just draw the things I need as I need them, with the "pen."

comment How can I improve one-off play with paragon or epic tier characters?
I happen to love flow charts, so that suggestion hits home with me. I'll probably make one much simplified from the one you provide, but it's a great suggestion. Thanks very much!

comment How can I improve one-off play with paragon or epic tier characters?
Yeah, I had originally meant to note that I realize that it's much, much easier to understand your character's powers if you grow into them level by level. That's why I specified one-shots. Your other two ideas are good, but I fear my players might not be interested in using up free time prior to the game, especially making characters, since they don't have DDI.

comment Optional rules to replace various XP costs in DnD3.5?
Thanks, too, that looks like an excellent resource.
