comment Why do Combat encounters and Skill checks give the same XP reward?
@GMNoob That's an intuitive thought, but variety tends to add interest. Consider: If time was the important factor, wouldn't it be simpler to just time the session, and grant XP based on the duration?

comment If an attack does damage and causes the target to make an attack, which happens first?
My standard assumption with games is that you perform the actions given to you in the order they are written. Top to bottom, left to right. However, I was unable to find this explicitly stated for 4e the last time I looked.

comment Why use NPC classes for NPCs?
I suspect that the relative simplicity of the NPC classes is also a factor. It's a lot easier to generate and run a level 5 warrior than it is to generate a level 5 fighter. The extra complexity is worthwhile for a major NPC, but not for the swarm of mooks guarding it.

comment Taking into account line-of-sight & blast rules, how would a blast work with a wall between you and an enemy?
@WaxEagle For a blast, I believe it requires LoE from the caster to each target (targets without LoE are immune). For a burst, I believe it is from the origin square. But without my books I must leave the search for the citation to others.

comment Taking into account line-of-sight & blast rules, how would a blast work with a wall between you and an enemy?
My 4e books are packed up at the moment, but I believe that there is a rule that states that line of effect is required to each square in the blast. Hopefully someone can dig up an actual citation.
