comment Are monks able to substitute Dexterity for Strength when making Grapple checks?
Going by RAW, I agree; the text implies that it applies to the somewhat-uniquely-defined unarmed strike. As a DM, though, I might house-rule that Dex could make sense, if the player came up with a convincing enough argument. Strictly speaking, most person-to-person grapples, IRL, have more to do with strength and leverage than anything else. It would have to be a unique situation in which Dexterity played a greater role.

comment On-the-Fly Crafting
Well, I get that, I make rulings on the fly all the time. But this is occurring more and more in my game, and it's never 100% clear to me. There isn't a crafting skill of any kind anymore. Sleight-of-hand COULD apply. A flat Dex check COULD apply. A flat Wisdom check COULD apply. There's a very large number of possibilities, so I was looking for some input on what other DMs have ruled or house-ruled in the past.

comment Can I delay my turn in D&D 5e?
Also, it should be noted that ultimately the decision should be left to the DM. It never hurts to ask. 5e is very clearly more like 2e and 3e than 4e, and while the emphasis in 4e was more centered on rules-adherance, one might infer from the overall voice of the 5e book that the rules should be treated as more flexible. Ultimately, though, it is DM's discretion.
