Q: For homebrew review, is it appropriate to add features of the homebrew that were meant to be a part of it but weren't written down to the question?

Disdyakis triacontahedronIn my question Is this revision of the level 2 Transmutation Wizard feature balanced? [Version 2], I intended for "stone" to exclude glass, but I now realize that not everyone reading that has the same interpretation, especially as someone has already given an answer based on glass being included...

Journaling TTRPGs have been becoming more popular and offer a plethora of opportunities for solo-gaming, developing writing skills, introspection, fostering journaling habits, and more.  However, not everyone sees themselves as a writer, and, when playing these TTRPGs with young kids, not everyone can write yet. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try though!  In this article, I breakdown ways to

Q: Can the Faerie Fire spell be oriented in a small space to not affect allies?

DragorasMany AOE spells use a point as their origin, and from this point, area is calculated. Faerie Fire doesn't state where spells start. Often, AOE spells are cast in rooms near walls to avoid friendly fire, so part of the spell is negated by the wall, and friendly creatures are safe. Can Faerie Fire ...

Q: How to simulate decreasing randomness even though randomness is increasing?

FictotumI am struggling to find a solution to this issue. Maybe there is none. I am seeking a way to decrease variance as character skill advances. I've considered various mechanisms for dice tests. I have one in particular that does not accomplish this by default, but I like the mechanism for other reas...

Q: Is the forest gnome's "Speak With Small Beasts" feature definitively bi-directional in 5e?

Valley LadForest gnomes have the following racial feature: Speak with Small Beasts. Through sound and gestures, you may communicate simple ideas with Small or smaller beasts. Like many words in English, "communicate" has different senses with differing definitions. In fact, the Oxford English Dictionary ...

Yep, the spell school is named Glamer, which surprises me.

Nobody/Groody - Please read the questions before adding the Portal tag. The three you just tagged are not asking about portals.

This opinion-based question is about to get reopened, we should probably vote to re-close it when it does.

Q: Using Dual Wielding, you can do two weapon fighting with a two handed weapon held in one hand.And can the other hand be a weapon that you just drawup?

FormydreamFor example, in one turn, there is a Fighter that has Dual Wielding and uses Attack Action on the greatsword that was previously held. He then chose to release the one hand holding the greatsword and used Interact with object to take out the longsword. Could he still do Two Weapon Fighting?

actually, it may not be opinion-based, but still too broad.
I think the actual question they want is "is it stated in the rules to be standard practice to hide rolls in 3.5e?"

@NotArch I don’t think OP is coming back to tell us.
@ThomasMarkov They were here last week
d'oh, more than a week.
well, doesn't hurt to ask :)
I'm nearly 100% this was a rant about their DM and them asking if it's in the rulebook that they do this.
But that's a big change to the question that invalidate all of opinionful answers, so...
But it really shouldn't be open as it stands right now.
@NotArch I’m not at my desktop where I can check their last login, but their last action on the site was over two years ago.
@ThomasMarkov yeah, i'm not holding my breath - and an answer would make it more confusing anyway in terms of what to do next.
6:34 PM
@NotArch I cannot close it since way back when it popped up I apparently retracted a close vote. So I did the next best thing and down voted it. 😮
@KorvinStarmast Heh it probably is worth a downvote - it really seems like a rant.
"Where does it say my DM is allowed to do this to me"
@NotArch It is a sympton of the toxic player syndrome as well ...

@Trish THanks for cleaning up that quote block - i wasn't sure what to do with it.
> >> is a quote in a quote^^
\> is continuous quote
(no \, just requires it for format
A multi-line message beginning with a > will be quote blocked in its entirety
Moreso not knowing how to parse with OP's intent - I know how to do a quote :)
Now a table - nothanks.
@Someone_Evil What's your thought on the GM rolls question? Too broad and and opinion-based or no?
Which Q in particular?
