comment How are Paladins made?
It probably is actually. Leo, can we presume the default D&D 5e setting of Forgotten Realms, or are you playing in another setting?

comment How are Paladins made?
You've said "version 5e" - I'm going to assume you mean D&D 5e, and edit the question slightly accordingly. Say/edit otherwise if it's not. In general, we do need the name and (usually) version of the game someone's playing - there are thousands of RPGs, and some of them other than D&D are in their 5th edition.

@PurpleMonkey ... Whoops. Retracted.

comment Do recovery rolls have to be in sequence?
I've removed the tag for [the-strange] from this question, since you're playing Numenera. Even if this question may apply to The Strange via it being in the same family and using the same mechanic, we don't tag based on what a question is kinda related to - tags describe the content of the question as already stated. We don't e.g. tag [fate-core] questions with [fate-accelerated] when it might also apply to those, unless the question's inherently about both.

comment My DM is my roommate and not a good DM… help?
@Korvin I would not mind so much if this actually provided some suggestion about what to do from here. This isn't even "devil's advocate" and doesn't need to be called that - especially since it's often just a position taken which nobody might even want to support because it's good to have something to argue against. It's just "I think you're missing your housemate's side of the picture, let me explain."

@Korvin For a start I've removed the parenthetical, which was unnecessary anyway

comment Can I Apply Sneak Attack Damage Twice in One Attack?
That change @JLan mentions is indeed reflected in the D&D 4e Player's Handbook errata. Featured in the 4th edition archive, 4e Updates - Complete.pdf, page 96. I've transcribed it here in chat for convenience.

comment Can you start the game with a spirit pact?
Go ahead and discuss balance concerns. Answers to RAW questions are completely at liberty to go into extra details once they've at least covered the RAW answer. Many RAW questions will go on to say "but these rules are dumb, I recommend this instead" or "but you could go right ahead and do it anyway and everything will be fine" and so on. You may be interested in our meta topic about what the RAW tag is for.

comment My DM is my roommate and not a good DM… help?
Do we actually need a devil's advocate? Are you explaining your own position on matters, or are you posing plausible justifications and arguments that you don't necessarily agree with or find reasonable for the sake of argument (which is what playing the devil's advocate tends to mean)? You may want to make it clear which one this is. What's your suggestion for action on actually responding to the situation, which is being requested? Last of all, I request you ask those clarifying questions in comments on the question itself, it's appropriate there.

comment How can characters defend with approaches other than quick?
I think so. I've learned a few new things here with this revision. :)

comment Can a PC move after freeing from grapple or restrained?
A second half of the answer, which might begin with "and so ..." and directly answer the question, is something that would be good to add.

comment Improvised Ranged attacks in Melee + Belt of the Brawler
You should ask that in a new question. Also, no, it's still an improvised weapon. You've got a thingy. You're improvising with it to use it as a melee weapon. There's no "improvised weapon" property to override here. It's improvised, it's a club, it's a weapon.

comment Improvised Ranged attacks in Melee + Belt of the Brawler
@OmnifariousGrey No, that's right. And that means everything it sounds like: it's a club now because of your belt, as I said so later in that same sentence. The specific weapon. (There isn't a club keyword - the club itself has the mace weapon type keyword.) It's nothing more or less than a club, regardless of what it was before when you were using it properly.

comment Are there any feats or equipment that can be used to assist a base melee character in ending a Rage?
@PremierBromanov Gotcha. I've given your post an edit to keep the pronouns for each party consistent for clarity.

"and restraining him also doesn't work because that condition still allows you to attack." But if you don't attack, restraining works fine right?

comment How do you deal with conflicts taking too long?
"if you try to fun it in its full glory" - i am amused by the appropriateness of this sentence, but did you mean run it?

comment What do I need for setting up a Shadowrun 3 character sheet on roll20?
Using this as a base, could you clarify if there's more that you need? I'm not sure if the present title matches your needs, or if the questions' just "can I use the SR2 one?"

comment What does “minimum” mean in the Force Training feat?
Hmm, yeah. BESW clarifies what the source of confusion is, and now I realise I might've accidentally given your answer a definite position on that which you weren't taking.

comment Can warlocks' familiars use armor/shields?
I've removed the second question, since it's wholly unrelated to the first. You should ask it separately, but it's probably best you get an answer to this one first! You can still access that second question via your revision history, which you can get to by clicking the "edited X time ago" beneath your post.
