comment What are the most important differences for a 1st Edition AD&D Dungeon Master learning to run D&D 4E?
@Adraino Perhaps ExTSR's explanation of this is better--simply that it's gone from "Anything not forbidden is permitted" to "Anything not permitted is forbidden" making much less choice for the DM. I wasn't saying it was bad or good or that the DM shouldn't override rules, I was just saying it was a different approach.

@Adraino What I mean is that the rules are so well specified that the DM CAN BE as restrained as the players and that makes it easier for the DM. It doesn't mean you have to or should play like that, it just means that the rules specify much more detail than in other RPGs I've played, to the point where if the DM wants to constrain himself to the rules as written, he can go all out with a monster and still not kill the characters. In other editions there is always a lot of "Well, it looks to me like you have cover" and "I don't think ou can hit him because of the angle"--none of that in 4th.

I think what you are saying is that it's not possible for a free action to go between an action and another action that triggers it. I mostly agree with this but can't free actions be used anywhere? I'm not even sure that there is wording that says that a free action can't happen during another action. However I tend to think you are right.

comment Which Thief-Style Striker Build is Simplest to Master?
Although since blocking terrain blocks line of sight, wouldn't that also conceal?

@GWLlosa Partial Concealment--Hidden Sniper. Which means I'm almost certainly wrong about it stacking with Wilderness Skirmisher--Hmph. Also makes it much harder to get in daylight--inside it shouldn't be too hard because it's usually dim light.

@Brian I think that checkbox has been removed--I couldn't find it.
