comment Why are the 5e releases spaced so far apart?
I've included the one quote I could find, I feel like he's commented on this elsewhere as well, but couldn't quickly find anything else.

comment How can I create a playable monster in DnD 5e?
LA yeah. Playable monster races perhaps not.

They may publish something additional later. Its a very young system

Actually, better yet, both of the things you mention have PC rules in the Monster Manual.

Have you read the section in the DMG on creating your own custom race?

comment How to make combat more tactical?
Hi and welcome! To be clear, you're a player in this situation? This is typically a DM decision, it might be best to have a conversation with your DM rather than ask here in this particular case. Also, in the future, if you could add a tag mentioning which system you're playing that's our preferred way of conveying that information. Thanks, welcome! And have a look at the tour when you have a moment.

comment Warlock Eldritch master good for nothing?
@CorvenDallas I'd ask your DM to allow this power to be instant out of combat then. It's not a combat power (10 rounds is a long time to sit idle), but with your short rest variant, making it much quicker is legit.

comment Re-roll a failed exploration roll?
@Ryan welcome to the hobby! many of us (including myself) are still learning (don't ever stop). This kind of thing is really easy to talk about, but it's much harder in the implementation. It's really easy to default to "roll the dice" and have no clue what's going to happen if they fail (I fall into this). I'll be honest, that post sounds like I have the hang of it, I don't. I still find myself reaching when I ask for a check without a clear failure mode in mind.

comment Re-roll a failed exploration roll?
@dot_Sp0T it's certainly a possibility depending on the roll called for. In the example case I'm not sure it's called for, but if you're attempting something where there is the potential for harm, it's a possibility

comment What happens when you run out of movement while jumping?
They are still limited by their own speed, even though their maximum jump distance is increased (note it does not give them a jump speed, that would be different). The dash action can be used to extend the jump to your maximum distance.

comment Determining Rounds out of combat
Please make sure to specify system in the tags as well as in the body (if necessary). I've added it as a tag for you.

comment Can a free action occur within an immediate interrupt?
@DCShannon The question becomes what does the Barbarian's Winter Phoenix rage interrupt? My assumption in this answer is that it interrupts dropping to 0 HP. That's not the only thing it could interrupt though. Though if it interrupts the damage source, it could still mean the barbarian drops (And is just a lower amount of negative HP), if that's the case, then the free action would trigger. It's not clear what is interrupted.

comment Level required to increase spell damage
@SevenSidedDie thanks, couldn't remember if we had an actual dupe or just the elf cantrip one.

comment Can you stack abilities on a weapon or armor?
How much of the DMG's custom magic item section have you read?

comment Can a character take Attacks of Opportunity while moving without stopping?
Could you map out how your envisioning this happen, maybe with bullet points? It's hard to picture how this exactly happens.

comment Riposte out of Reach
@Escoce there are no mechanics (except again, for specific monsters, the Roper is one I can think of right this second) so it'd be fully subject to GM adjudication and would be very case by case.

comment Riposte out of Reach
@TimB some monsters (things with tentacles say), can have their appendages attacked. General monsters attacking at reach though, not so much.

comment Is there an efficient way to make an interactive map?
Could you give us some more details about exactly what your looking for (perhaps summarize the cool features of the interactive atlas that you'd like to see in a custom piece of software).

comment Shield Master - Can the shield push be taken before an attack?
Without everyone who pops in having to wade through 10 pages of forum stuff, could you summarize the forum link into the key points of why the forumites speculate this to be the case (in support of Jeremy's tweet). The best guess I got from reading page 1 is simply that we're collectively overthinking action ordering in 5e, and if that's the case that's fine. But wondering if anyone later got a better gist.

comment How do the actions work out when sheathing/drawing weapon and then casting a spell?
@khada, only 1/turn either stowing or drawing. So you stow, but then can't draw again. That said mearls favors not really caring about this and I tend to agree.
