comment Ability drain (natural) attacks and subdual damage
I think I might have read the DR section and interpreted that as I stated in my question. The DR part clearly indicates that if no damage is taken then the special affects aren't applied, the assumption (probable mistake) that I must have made is that in my head I consider damage and subdual as two different things shrug.

That would be exactly the reason for this question I guess :)

comment Ability drain (natural) attacks and subdual damage
The difference is that the shadow does ability damage while the fang dragon does an ability drain, furthermore, the way I read/interpret the dragon's ability is that it is some form of automatic poison/blood drain type thing and as such can not be actively turned on or off (much like supernatural damage reduction, which also can not be controlled).

comment Can players use ranged attacks or spells while within the Magic Circle against Evil?
I still think that part of this question is very interesting. Take the following scenario: Archibald has shot at a summoned creature and loses his protection against summoned creatures but if he stays within your emanation range, the summoned creature still won't be able to reach him. I think I know my new 'Annoy the DM' trick :)

I assumed that, that would be clear from my post but I added a 'special cases' part to my answer to state this explicitly.

comment My starting players miss a lot against enemies
A AC15 goblin should be roughly 50/50 to hit or not for a low level melee character. The barbarian with a +6 that you describe has a higher chance to hit than to miss for example. The only character that would indeed have the described 25% miss chance is a character that shouldn't be in melee to begin with (ie a mage with a BAB of 0 and strength score of 10-11).
