comment How to reduce minis dependence in d20-based games?
@SevenSidedDie, @mxyzplk The difference seems to be more in terms of how the rules are expressed than the rules themselves. IIRC, 3.5 started listing things in terms of squares, while 3e tried to list actual distance.

comment Are there rules for knocking a character unconscious without inflicting dramatic wounds?
@Lo'oris I was the GM. I did allow them to (I basically glossed over the mechanics). IMO, that should go without saying :)

comment Converting D&D 3.5 characters to D20 Modern characters
@Duffadash Are you looking for a strict "by the book" conversion, or are you considering adding custom classes/spells? Should the conversion be low level to low level, low level to mid levels, mid levels to mid levels, etc.?

comment Good Single Word Instruction for “Command” Spell
@JonHopkins "Commit suicide" (with commit as verb and suicide as noun) is the more common use, but suicide as a verb shows up in at least one dictionary. Dictionary.com cites Merriam-Webster, for example (in addition to its own citation).

comment How do you port Dark Sun from AD&D to another system?
Could you be more specific about the aspects you'd like to play up, and the aspects you'd like to suppress? Particularly from a system stand point? High fantasy is a little vague in this genre...

comment Converting D&D 3.5 characters to D20 Modern characters
I dunno. Unplayed low-level characters could work. Something that doesn't have any play-investment in it, and doesn't require a lot of time to create. It's basically a way to create pre-gens. A lot also depends on the fidelity of the conversion...

comment Can shifting trigger immediate actions?
Shifting doesn't provoke opportunity attacks. Immediate Interrupts and Immediate Reactions are distinct from opportunity actions (Immediate actions can be taken once per full round, opportunity actions can be taken once per combatant's turn). See Acedrummer_CLB's answer.

comment What happens when a character has both Superior Will and is wearing a Circlet of Arkhosia?
Do you have anything to cite regarding this? I.e. why wouldn't you get two saving throws at the start of your turn?

comment Measuring complexity in 4e characters?
Knowing the ultimate purpose of the complexity measure would probably help. Are you looking at complexity relative to teachability, enjoyability, understandability, etc.? Are you focused on the player perspective, the rules perspective, difficulty in balancing, and so on?

comment Does shifting count as movement, for the purpose of triggering non-attack opportunity actions?
Replaced by the following questions: Does shifting trigger immediate actions?, Can shifting trigger non-attack opportunity actions?, Can Pursuit of the Hunter be used to move away from the triggering enemy?

For other podcasts see: Where can I find actual play podcasts for RPGs? and Are there any groups that use role-play games as performance art?
