Bought Red box D&D from Kmart at age 12 - still playing today. I'm a 'polygame-ist' - I'll play just about anything. I don't like either the roll- or role-playing extremes - I prefer a balance between tactical and conversational action.

comment Why Does Spellcasting Have Levels?
Part of your first paragraph is actually inaccurate - there are STILL some spells that become more effective at higher caster levels with the same spell slot level. Shocking Grasp for instance, and there are likely others.

comment How do I make a gunslinger with a decent damage progression?
When the original answer was made, this combination actually worked via the use of Weapon Cords (allowing you to drop and juggle your pistols while you reload). A recent errata changed the way Weapon Cords work, specifically to depower a lot of this combo. However, you could still use the dual-double pistols for at least 4 attacks in a round, and possibly more if you drop the secondary pistol to allow reloading the primary.

comment What battle maps do I use for Legacy of the Crystal Shard?
I agree with Brian S - I've played certain combat encounters for 4e without a map at all, but they were a little unusual. Much easier in 3e.

comment Pathfinder Magic Item Creation Limits
@LeesusFreak - actually knowing the spells involved is not required. One could hire someone else to cast them, use a scroll or just make a Spellcraft check to ignore them. Same for other requirements.

comment Does a Dread negate its own immunity to fear?
Just a point on Untouchable Aura - Confusion could indeed force you to attack yourself while UA was active...

comment If holding the charge on a touch spell, does getting hit do anything?
The Touch Spells in Combat paragraph does say if you touch anything, it discharges...so, it depends on how you define 'touch' - only a hand? Any body part? Any unclothed body part? What about gauntlets? paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/combat.html#_touch-spells-in-combat

comment Magic Item Creation Prerequisite Rules
If you use an ally to cast the spell for you, afaik, they don't need to have the Craft feat. All they need to do is count the spell as being cast, and stick with you for the day.
