comment How many attack/damage rolls when using Twinned spell?
Your last bit is actually quite relevant here. One thing we know from other Q&A is that magic missile is a damage roll per target (and not per missile).

comment How to calculate the expected damage increase from Empowered Spell?
@Strill that should be irrelevant as long as you're counting the second roll as 3.5. Yes it happens, but that's something that is factored in when you consider the average.

@BraddSzonye yeah, I realized in editing here that it's in a different place from other kits, I noted that in this answer to hopefully signpost future querents!

comment Bonus action spell + Cantrip— does order matter?
@Khashir exactly. I have no reason why though.

comment How many attack/damage rolls when using Twinned spell?
Both. It's not qualified, and both rolls are considered the damage roll for that spell. (Though if you had something that modified the next damage roll, only one would be affected, similarly if you had advantage on your next attack roll, only one would have advantage).

comment Bonus action spell + Cantrip— does order matter?
@Khashir No. You'd have to be able to cast a spell as a bonus action, and you can't do that if you've already cast one as an action.

@JLan aye! lots of room for creativity in creation of this kind of scenario

comment Will trading the Monk Martial Arts feature for the Grappling Feat cause problems?
@psychoed42 you'd have to model them as ability/skill contests. No rules exist for them at this time (outside the aforementioned contest rules).

comment What happened to disease in D&D 5e?
@Jason_c_o it's a curse. The two effects are pretty much identical except for what removes them.

comment What's the average damage increase from Elemental Adept?
@corsiKa yeah, the 1.28 was a rounding error. I've edited it to be correct.

comment What's the average damage increase from Elemental Adept?
@corsiKa ah! I forgot d4s. Your comment initially confused me because I thought you were referring proportionally not as a static increase, but yes, 1/3 of a point of damage would be added on for 2d6, yes.

comment Will trading the Monk Martial Arts feature for the Grappling Feat cause problems?
@psychoed42 really it's up to your DM. Balance is sort of an iffy concern on this question as your venturing pretty far afield of intent here. I'm telling you what I'd do if you were one of my players and came to me with this.

comment Do Warlock Ally's attack stats not level up?
Just a heads up, use the power name in questions. This is not a familiar, it's a summon. Summons are always driven by a power, so use the power name when asking questions about it.

comment Foxes for druids and rangers
@BraddSzonye ooh interesting consequence. I'll think about that when I do my editing here.
