The problem in question isn't really covered by the rules. However, there are rules which govern fire in real life that you can use to determine whether a fire will be stronger or burn longer. And those rules can be found with this image right here: In order for there to even have a chance for there to be a fire, there needs to be an ignition source, a ...

You cannot (usually) attack twice in one turn in D&D 4e. On your turn you have 3 actions, a Standard, Move, and a Minor. Generally your Standard is your attack, your Move generally involves moving, and your Minor is something like Cursing your enemies. You can downgrade actions from a Standard to a Move or a Minor, and a Move to a Minor, but you cannot ...

You seem to have missed a critical part of sneak attack, and you seem to not understand the mechanics of grappling in much detail. I'll deal with Sneak Attack first. I DM for a group that includes a rogue. He has been able to sneak attack about 95 % of his turns in combat so far, for one simple reason: the group has a tank that stands next to the enemies. ...

It is illuminating (heh) to look at the full text: Oil. Oil usually comes in a clay flask that holds 1 pint. As an action, you can splash the oil in this flask onto a creature within 5 feet o f you or throw it up to 20 feet, shattering it on impact. Make a ranged attack against a target creature or object, treating the oil as an improvised ...

TL;DR No, Yes The details If you clear up your terminology, your question answers itself. There is no "extra attack action" - there is the "Attack Action" and there are "attacks". The Attack Action allows you to make one or more attacks but there are other circumstances (Bonus Action and Reaction) where you can attack. Here is what the book says about ...

Let's examine the PHB before we arrive at an answer: PHB 190: Other Activity on Your Turn You can also interact with one object or feature of the environment for free, during either your move or your action. For example, you could open a door during your move as you stride toward a foe, or you could draw your weapon as part of the same action you ...

The duration won't increase as a result of stacking multiple flasks of oil. The damage might. You can also pour a flask of oil on the ground to cover a 5-foot-square area, provided that the surface is level. If lit, the oil burns for 2 rounds and deals 5 fire damage to any creature that enters the area or ends its turn in the area. A creature can ...

I would also rule that this would cause the fire to spread out, or burn for longer if the oil was confined. A lamp oil fire is a pool fire; i.e. there is a flaming surface with a big puddle of not-burning liquid underneath it, as the actual combustion reaction takes place in the gas phase. Adding fuel to the fire while it is burning would also cause the ...
