comment How can I depict three dimensional combats?
@wax, yes. @dpatch, the plastic box dice come in is the right size for a mini to fit under while supporting one on top. It wouldn't work so well for stacks of more than two characters, but in my 16 years of gaming, I've never seen that happen.

comment Is there a way to make the damage system in 4e more like previous editions?
@C. Ross, TY but I can't take credit for it. It was in several LFR mods and for the longest time I assumed that was how you were supposed to punish certain failures.

comment Out-Of-Control Characters
@Baelnorn, I meant the mob boss would be too low in scope, not the technique. I wasn't quite thinking of Orcus or Vecna yet, but they would definitely work perfectly at a higher tier.

comment Can D&D Fourth Edition be played effectively in a non-gamist manner?
@mxyzplk, I haven't tried intentionally fudging 4e. I decided to run this campaign by the book just because I hadn't done that before. It had nothing to do with the system. I see no reason why fudging 4e wouldn't work though.
