comment Does sneak attack damage do max damage on a critical hit?
Welcome to RPG.SE. Struggling to figure out what this adds. The information is already present and the tone is a bit disrespectful. Could you make it nicer and add something new?

comment Can a thief sneak attack with an implement power?
hybrid sneak attack specifies rogue powers, the default one only specifies the type of object (light blade, sling, shortbow and hand crossbow), not the power set.

comment How does Monk's unarmed strike interact with powers requiring two weapons?
well, I can see a balance issue, its basically like having 2 longswords (non versatile, which is the only difference I see) that are identically enchanted (ki focus). So the damage output is pretty good. It's an off stat build without an extra feat, but with the right half-elf it would be very interesting.

Could you mention an example power?

comment What point-buy systems of magic (like psionics in 3e D&D) are there?
This seems (on the surface) a huge question. Could you maybe define your requirements a bit more tightly?

@TimothyAWiseman good point about a spectrum, I've integrated it and added a bit more.

@JoshuaDrake I address both. They are two sides of the meta-gaming die.

comment Is 'Charge' broken?
Welcome to RPG.SE! I dispute the idea that charge is broken. There are four tradeoffs you make when you charge: You have to disengage from your current oponent, so either you are shifting or you are eating an opportunity attack. You have to make an MBA attack, which is likely less damaging than another at-will (the move and +1 to hit balance this a bit), and finally it automatically ends your turn (obviously exceptions apply). Finally you must move at least 2 squares and all moves must be toward your target. These limits keep it relatively balanced.

@ErikBurigo I don't think you can. the implication that you can is all kinds of broken.

@ErikBurigo I'm way more concerned about the potential brokenness of dual implement spellcasting if shurikens can be enchanted for 1/5 the cost.

comment Monster Manual 1 - Is it balanced? Should I balance it?
@Quick_Spoon one of the things to mention with off stats related to weapons is that there are often ability score bonuses tied to the weapons (add your con if you attack with x weapon), also worth mentioning that weapon mastery (improved crits) at epic often require certain scores in 2 abilities.

comment Monster Manual 1 - Is it balanced? Should I balance it?
what's the problem with those defenses at L9? a L9 character should be able to hit him just fine. (to hit AC at L9 is 4+2+4+1 = 11 which means you hit better than half the time, hitting NADs is harder as usually that's 4+4+1 = 9 (no weapon prof) so you hit slightly less than half). They tough to hit because they are brutes. brutes are a low damage high HP class of monster. One of the ways you can do high HP is higher defenses and regeneration.

comment What kinds of effects can modify a die roll?
@Snowbody my suggestion is a bit different than CWing the question. My proposal is to create one single answer as CW it and maintain it as a list of all possible ways to modify the roll. blog.stackoverflow.com/2011/08/the-future-of-community-wiki
