Well we've got a weird case with this new question. I think a new user iterated on somebody else's homebrew?
12:57 AM
@Medix2 a different user, not a new user.
@Akixkisu New relative to the previous asker is how I meant it. New as in different
Do you think we should drop the iteration time rule when someone else iterates a question?
Yeah I have no idea what to do here; the feature names were changed and stuff which is... weird
Like, it's very different

Q: Experience with character utilizing Darkness

enumagI have an idea of a character who would often use the Darkness spell in combat - with either Warlock's Devil's Sight or Sorcerer's Shadow Magic to remain unaffected. That way the character would get advantage on attack rolls against nearly all enemies (except those that have truesight or blindsig...

Q: Eberron - Can someone without the mark of storm change the direction of an airship?

stupidstudentIn our Eberron campaign, airships are more common than usual. The bad guy in my adventure hides on an already flying airship, kills the pilot and crashes the airship against a castle next to the airship. A few seconds before it crashes, he jumps from the ship with a feather token. Does my bad guy...

urg... I feel irked out by all those "IS this balanced?" questions that never defined what they mean by balance. Just a silly example: In The Dark Eye 4th edition a Potter and a soldier profesion are balanced in that both packages contain the same ammount of experience on skills, but they are imbalanced in that the potter can't fight and has social and trade skills, but some are useless for an adventurer (like the pottery talent) while the soldier has combat and some social skills.
would "What does Balance mean?" be a viable mainsite question, when the expected answer is "It depends on what you mean by balance. Here are some ways what it can be: ..."
7:09 AM
@Trish Meanwhile, on my end, I'm tired of the people who say "is this balanced?" isn't defined. People obviously just mean to compare it to other similar things
@Medix2 But what is similar? Do they want to make their fighter stand up to a barbarian rager?
The experts in the system know best what balance is for that system and know how to compare, say, a subclass, to every other subclass
To me, if somebody asked about the exact same homebrew subclass with "Is this balanced with respect to X?" in one question and "with respect to Y?" in another and so on for all the infinite possible balance ideas, I would think they could be combined into one question
Q: Are "is this balanced" questions on-topic?

PixelMasterBefore I start: I thought about the matter when reading this answer to the How is the community doing? [2018] post, which claims a larger percentage of negative reactions towards homebrew questions compared to other questions, and also urges more open-mindedness towards homebrew questions. The la...

Q: How should I ask about my D&D 5e Homebrew being balanced?

doppelgreenerWe've had a number of D&D 5e homebrew questions that present a piece of homebrew (a race, a class, etc) and ask if it is balanced. Some get closed as too broad or primarily opinion-based, others are readily accepted and get answered. If I needed to ask about whether my homebrew thingy is balance...

@ThomasMarkov I awarded that bounty
12:23 PM
@ThomasMarkov after you've awarded your bounty, would you mind pinging me? I want to start one there, too. (But questions can only have one active bounty at a time.) Thanks.
Time to test if following a question or answer pings for bounties
12:37 PM
Well, guess there's another question where I don't know what they're asking but I also don't know the system (adnd-1e) so I can't know if other people also don't know what they're asking XD

OP: Please only experienced-based answers. Also OP: I'll give a check mark to the only non-experienced based answer.
3:45 PM
@NautArch Yeah... not that I find Dale's answer really much better as it talks about a scenario that we don't know can even happen to the OP
@Medix2 But at least it's a scenario of experience.
True true, I am debating writing my own answer from when I played with a Bardlock who used a dancing weapon with darkness and Devil Sight.
@Medix2 I disagree. There are clearly several questions in there.
Kryan wanting to answer it doesn't change that fact.
Nor is his snark about those voting to close and their reasons for doing so acceptable.

Q: Flying speed when under Etherealness spell?

WakiNadiVellirNormally flying up or down does not give or cost extra movement, as covered here. However, Etherealness spell (duration 8 hours) states the following: You remain in the Border Ethereal for the duration or until you use your action to dismiss the spell. During this time, you can move in any direc...

> Anyone qualified to answer this question would know the context, and would be able to answer this as-is. Therefore, it’s a fine question, and should be open.
Reads to me like: If I think I know the context, then I am qualified to answer. Not that it should be objectively clear what the question is answering
My thirty 2e books and decade playing it have me wondering what the question's about, so I'm certainly on the "unclear" train. Then again, I cho(o)se only to play in psionics-in-magic-out or magic-in-psionics-out games, so there certainly could be nuances I never cared about and have forgotten.

@nitsua60 could be
I don't agree with kryan's assesment regardless
@kryan, in that case it's merely a wording issue. If you can, please do edit it down to one core question that you feel you can answer, and if it is possible as you said, keep the surrounding context so you can cover everything the original question covers. — AncientSwordRage 22 secs ago

@AncientSwordRage I think I made a good edit?

@NautArch it's better for sure
I was sort of waiting on Kryan to put money where their mouth is though

@AncientSwordRage that sounds unhygienic
