comment How do you overcome blindness?
"Also my eyes are taken eye sockets and it is missing so it doesn't count as broken" - I don't understand this phrase at all. You seem to be saying your eyes are missing but then you say you don't count as broken?

comment How does surprise work in D&D 5e?
You may wish to invite meta's judgement or advice on how to handle this question.

comment Building a New Character
You can find your earlier question by visiting your own profile. (Click your name or avatar down at the bottom of your question, or your avatar that sits toward the middle of the black bar at the very top of the site.) Your profile has a history of your past questions and answers, among almost anything else. Your previous question on building a Striker is here.

comment Do self-Compels draw from the GM's Fate pool?
Based on the SRD link in your other question, I'm tagging this [fate-core]. Fate itself has a long history and not all editions have the same clear rules about compels.

comment How do I go about attracting new players to take part in Roleplay?
Maverick, please clarify: are you trying to attract people to the LARP who are not members of it, and also get them active on that forum? Half your question's just about your forums, but that's not the LARP.

comment How do I go about attracting new players to take part in Roleplay?
I'm voting to reopen this because by our on topic guidance for real-world topics, an RPG expert can give this a better, different, or more specific answer than just a generic community management expert. Community management seems to be standard fare for LARP questions.

comment How to keep an upset player in the group?
Are you aware of anything else you might have done that might be driving him out of the game or preventing him from getting invested? It would be unusual for someone to announce they don't want to play anymore just at one thing going wrong.

comment How do I determine this monster's HP if I'm only given its HD?
Sounds like this is a Goblin Punch thing and in other cases HD alone is meaningless for determining HP, is that right?

comment Is this a good way to represent the inability to capitalize on attacks in Fate Core?
It sounds like you don't want to represent "the inability to capitalise on attacks", you just want a combat system that strongly encourages setting up attacks via teamwork in order to make any difference, and encourages disrupting an enemy's set-up as a means of keeping your teammates alive, and also embraces high lethality. Is that accurate?

comment Does copying a spell from a scroll into your spellbook consume the scroll?
@NanbanJim An answer stating as such is a good way for that answer to demonstrate its relevance: "There aren't any rules about this thing. A previous edition uses this rule, which worked well in that edition, and works well in D&D 5e as well. I suggest you use it."

comment What's a good fast-combat system that scales to 6-10 players?
In your third to last paragraph, do you mean turn times (each player) or round times (every player)? 10 minute turns means you'd take an hour and a half to finish the first round of combat.

comment Playing with a Doppelganger disguised as a hero?
@Wink Might want to consider how that comes into conflict with the goal of "so it's not real easy for the players to figure out who the actual person is".

comment Does copying a spell from a scroll into your spellbook consume the scroll?
Hi DWalker, and welcome to our site. D&D has gone through many revisions with many different types of sound logic. You should be answering based on the version the player is actually using. If other editions' rlules are relevant, you should demonstrate that they're relevant and compatible with the edition being played. Providing a previous edition's rules alone does not necessarily make for a good answer - if people were doing that with 4e (either answering 4e, or answering using 4e), we may have nonsense.

comment What to do when someone's attacking you, but succeeding the save is worse than failing it?
@daze413 Among many tables, metagaming is not seen as a bad thing, and in fact may be standard fare for play. We embrace that fact. Something seeming like metagaming is therefore not itself a problem.

@trekkieyk I've done some editing to try and better express some parts of this issue. Please check it over and see if you're OK with it, and edit further if you'd like.

comment What to do when someone's attacking you, but succeeding the save is worse than failing it?
I invite you to elaborate on the context and significance of this quote and connect the dots between that quote and "players can fail a saving throw if they want." A single brief quote intended for a very different context and participant (the DM), from a book the player might not even have, with a snappy "No worries" does not provide much clarity or enlightenment for newbies.

comment A player takes half a standard action, what am I supposed to do?
@ArnovanderWeijden Good to hear, seems like you've got it managed (I'm glad to see that talking to him is on that list for if it ever becomes unfun :D)

comment A player takes half a standard action, what am I supposed to do?
@Arno It sounds like you have some conflict between two players at the table. You might also want to ask us about that if it is a significant problem, but it's hard to tell if you're exaggerating and whether it's disruptive to your group or just OK and fun. If it's making things un-fun somehow, that'd be something we could advise in resolving given sufficient information about the situation.

comment Action: Reaction how it works in 5E D&D
Could you summarise the first of those questions, so that this can be a complete and comprehensive answer to the question? Please see Should I be requesting people answer the question independently? for why we expect each answer to answer the question fully, and advice for what to do if you feel you'd just be repeating Miniman's answer.

comment Is it confirmed that the Hammer of Thunderbolts is intentionally based on Mjolnir?
Basically the thing that really answers this question in totality is a quote from a dev saying "Yep we modelled that after Mjolnir", and the entire answer could contain just about only that. You're after the devs confirming it, and that's all we need to know. We don't need extra art or hints and so on.
