comment Is it better to take the array and be Joe Average, or to roll for the odds of getting on average better scores?
Those rules are available for free...and I already have an answer here, thanks.

It's worth noting that in 5e the maximum allowed score with point buy is 15, you get 27 points, and the table for allocating them is on page 9 of BD&D.

@Jadasc please slow down with the edits. Too many and you'll run new stuff off the homepage.

comment Does passive perception supersede active perception?
@MooingDuck its an "effective" floor, rather than an explicit one. Passive perception should be checked first and perception rolled only if you feel something additional can be learned after your passive score is taken into account (thus trying to roll >10). It's not a practical floor, but you should have already been told what you see with your passive, so if you don't roll higher than 10 you don't learn anything new. If it it's something you have to be actively searching to find, passive isn't a floor (hence "often")

comment Does Crossbow Expert's point-blank attack benefit apply to all ranged attacks?
The polearm master attack specifies the weapons you can be wielding. No such specification is made in this feat.

I understand that. I'm saying that a random occurance that happens 7% of the time in something with a low frequency of iteration would happen more often since every time you roll your stats that 7% chance exists.

@Sheepy rolling up 1 or even 2 sets with that 7% chance still means it it'll happen often enough that I've not much interest in rolling my stats.

Sure, check out the instructions for the Redbrand hideout in the starter adventure. Under Secret doors it lists two different DCs, one for passive and one for active (15/10).
