5e is not set in the Forgotten Realms. As with any other D&D edition out there, it is set in a world of your choice, be it an official world like FR or PoL, or in one you created yourself. It just so happens that the first bunch of offical adventures have been set in the Realms, and that the developers chose to have FR as the default setting, because it ...

Rogue uses Knockout from stealth, which gains sneak attack damage. At this point everything is normal. An rogue attack with CA with sneak attack damage. Rogue uses an action point, triggering the Slaying Action feat. So another attack (this time an auto-crit) with CA and another use of sneak attack damage. The sneak damage could come from Wrathblade ...

I'm using Mage's Blade enchantment on a rapier. Does this Mage's Rapier now count as a dagger for powers and feats that need a dagger or what does "Proficient as: Dagger" mean? No, it does not count as a dagger for powers and feats that need a dagger. You cannot hope to gain the benefits from Rogue Weapon Talent while wielding a Mage's Rapier. Likewise, ...

The way I would handle it is not make the boss mechanically difficult (if you decide to stat him at all, nothing says you have to have stats for him), but make him incredibly powerful in other ways. Have him have vast resources, access to powerful magic, high level henchmen (who are statted out, but whose goals aren't to survive, but to do their master's ...

Note: Most of the party have put considerable effort into optimizing their characters, if that might play in at all. While individual character optimization can make a considerable difference in effectiveness, it still pales in comparison to full party optimization (i.e. Radiant Mafia). Solo fights are often frustrating. If the solo boss is too high a ...

An average L30 PC (assuming primary stat at 18, increasing it every 4 levels and a +6 implement/weapon AND the inevitable relevant Expertise feat) will be aiming at about +32 to hit a NaD. L30 monsters will have NaDs ranging from around 42 to 44, generally. This means I need about a 10 or a 12 on my attack roll to hit. (realistically, it's going to be lower ...

In your case, no. The ability for you to to make your Aegis Assault attack is listed as an effect of your Aegis of Assault that comes after the marking action. If the target was not marked by the Aegis, then it isn't vulnerable to the Aegis attack granted as part of the marking power. The Aegis says "your marked target" as opposed to the fighter's Combat ...

It depends on the class Different classes use marks in different ways, some having generic marks, and some having special, named marks. For example, Paladins have not just one, but two named marks, Divine Challenge and Divine Sanction, which have additional features beyond generic marks. Swordmage Aegis marks are indeed special marks with extra features ...

Assuming you are talking about a Mage's Weapon (Adventurer's Vault p. 72), it says quite clearly in the description: Anyone proficient with simple weapons or the dagger is proficient with this weapon.

Yes. Page 228 doesn't mention anything about "attacks that inflict status;" it only mentions that statuses themselves. This means we first have to figure out whether a "raw" immobilized (save ends) is the same as the immobilized (save ends) given by the power. For that case, I would say no as the effect given by the power also has additional conditions on ...
