Rules question:
Declaring your movement and or action before initiative is rolled feels odd to me. It's counter to the way most games are set up. There must be a logical reason but I'm not experienced with LL yet. Can anybody clue me in?

Personally, I don't know anybody who runs this part of the game as written. It's interesting, and it makes a certain kind of sense, but in practice, I find it easier and more natural (if perhaps less verisimilar) to just let each side determine who goes first naturally.

It doesn't break my immersion to do it like that; I view it more as a simulation of party synergy. Any group of adventurers confident enough in their skills to brave the dark places of the world would presumably do so after learning to operate as a team to some extent - they'd get wiped out in three seconds flat otherwise. To return to +Gus Badnell's example, I believe the fighter would be keeping an eye on the wizard and adjusting her tactics accordingly. You'd do that if you wanted to stay alive.

More importantly, though, the system runs more smoothly in play and doesn't lead to cheap deaths. Initiative itself is a very game-y convention, so I don't think it's especially important to maintain verisimilitude in that regard. But that's me.

is there an editable (Word, text, whatever) version of the LL and AEC Equipment lists? I want to make a grand list with some revisions. Specifically I'll rehash the flavor text of torches to make it clear that they are generally a bad idea (go light a stick covered in pitch and tell me thats efficient lighting) add links, reedlights, and various candles, also I'm thinking something with shoes.... and some stuff for fantasy Spell Travel.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3qTniJsoEg

Rules question : When a monster is described with "Hit Dice: 2-4", does it mean "2 HD minus 4" or "2 to 4 HD" ?

I agree. The "2-4" seems to be a range while a 2+4 would indicate 2HD +4 hit points. They never give penalties to monster hit points in the stat block, with the exception of stating "1/2" HD for tiny creatures.

Thanks man :) Feel free to ask. I'm an autodidact though, so I don't really know what I'm doing :)

Hell Snail, a strange race of Snail who has no specific magical abilities but 1, they will (quite at random) scrawl sigils, runes, and circles of summoning with their enchanted mucus, randomly (roll on your favorite chart) summoning planar creatures of great power. Originally created by summoners to save on spell components, they now spend their days consuming slimes and fungi, seeking mates, and populating the world with BEINGS WHO SHOULD NOT BE! http://www.deviantart.com/art/Hell-snail-499426117
