Interpretations and applications of rules that only take into consideration specifically what published game material states.

For various reasons, a question poster may want answers that do not use information sources outside of published game material, such as online statements from game designers, personal experience about how various house rules work, or suggestions regarding how real world concepts should be applied within game mechanics such that the mechanics make more sense.
