comment Tying someone up in 4E
I'd probably go with -20 on the attacker's thievery check, by default, with varying degrees of lesser penalties if the target is dazed/stunned/restrained/prone/etc.

@GMNoob Hmm, you are right. Wish I could downvote myself, but upvoting the correct answer will have to do! If the votes and accepted answer don't sort themselves out here in a few days I'll delete this answer so that we aren't misinforming people.

comment Is the turn when a readied action goes off, considered a different turn from the one when the ready action took place in?
I see now that curse used to work like I described until it was errata'd. I missed the memo :)

I guess that's why the rule confused me, because it goes against what I've believed and played for the past 4 years. I learned something new today! Strange that the rule for "Once per Round" seems to contradict this by using the word turn in its definition.

I found the "Once per turn" rule from the compendium to be more confusing than helpful. Once per round seems more pertinent here.

Or "Ready, take an OA and deal curse damage, then the readied action triggers." Or a warlord grants you an attack, etc, etc. There are plenty of ways this could happen.
