You're looking lovely today. That's a nice hat you have on!

The four-pointed star used in D&D 4e powers is a unicode character: ✦ / ✦

comment How can I use the updated Dragons against my players without absolutely killing all of them?
@DaviBraid I've done some heavy editing to (I think) improve the clarity with which these points are conveyed, and refine it down to the important stuff. Please check it over, and roll back or edit further as you like!

comment How to house-rule re-locking a door using a lockpick?
A reminder that per meta, homebrew answers should come from experience in order to be reliable and satisfy good subjective. You should have tried this in your own game or witnessed it happening, and be able to talk about how it worked out. Naturally a lot of us could come up with something on the spot, but having actually tried it makes the difference for whether it will work well.

comment What was the first D&D Module?
@SevenSidedDie Negatory; it was first printed with Blackmoor in 1975, which is earlier than the current answer. I'm waiting and hoping that guardian7 will update their answer with some substantiation like this. (I could do a lot of editing on this myself, but I go by a rule of thumb where I won't put more effort into someone else's question or answer than they did.)

comment I would like a self-contained, non–Al Amarja Over The Edge adventure
Welcome to Role-playing Games! Please take a look at the tour and the help center; they're a useful introduction to the site. Could you add some information about whether this is available electronically, and give us an idea of the content of the adventure?

Are you able to give us a bit of an idea of what that very detailed resource system looks like? As you can imagine, 'very detailed' is not very specific in this context!

comment Is heat metal too powerful?
I'm voting to close this as primarily opinion-based: it seems to be inviting discussion and arbitrary fixes, none of them necessarily demonstrably correct answers.

comment Are there any Large playable races with a LA of +0/+1 and if so where are they?
I've altered the wording of the title slightly to possibly be more accurate. ("Large creatures" -> "Large playable races") Please check if the change is OK.

comment How do people handle failure in Roll For Shoes?
@Jon There's a similar form of question that can work well here: request a tried-and-tested solution for roll for shoes that meets certain criteria. Answers will be able to provide recommendations that are better or worse depending on how well they meet your criteria. I've asked a few questions of this form myself in Fate which involves a lot of this kind of creativity, e.g.: on adding loot, on simulating a language barrier, on dealing with extreme success.

comment What Dread Powers do the Demons have?
I've edited your answer to use a quote block instead of a code block. There are symbols in your answer that don't show up in my browser (it looks like this) - do they still show up for you? I suspect there might be character set problems -- are you able to replace them with HTML entities? I find FileFormat.info has a very handy Unicode symbol directory.

Unfortunately, "this system I don't remember the name of" isn't very helpful as a recommendation. Even if you remembered enough to demonstrate all the criteria are met, we wouldn't know what that system is!

comment Does the Spell Attack modifier apply to spell damage?
I'm voting to close this playtest version question as a duplicate of the same question about the full version, so as to point people there. (I don't believe this question should be edited, and is fine as is, except for that the duplicate closure would be helpful.)

comment Where does a dragon steed get summoned from, and where is its hoard kept?
I've edited the title to more accurately reflect the question itself: this answer really isn't answering the details of the question, and hopefully that stands out a bit more now, because the question itself was never about whether the dragon was fussy and how to roleplay it being fussy. (Only the title mentioned that, and answering the title is... plusungood.) This needs heavy modifications to actually address and answer the question.

comment Where does a dragon steed get summoned from, and where is its hoard kept?
@HeyICanChan I'm concerned about the fact your question has a +20 non-answer on it, which is just talking about how a dragon is fussy. In light of that, I'm editing the title to describe your actual question. Hopefully people will catch on.

comment How do people handle failure in Roll For Shoes?
This is a fantastic thing to inquire into, but this isn't the place for it - you should probably look to a forum. Stack Exchange's Q&A engine focuses on problems that have one specific objectively best solution, whilst this is an invitation to discuss the various different systems people have used for a very large category of situations. A lot of them will be good! But we discourage discussion questions where very answer is equally valid, or which take the form of: "I use X for this, what do you use?" Forums are a great place for that though.

comment Where does a dragon steed get summoned from, and where is its hoard kept?
So what part of the 1/2/3 listed at the end of the question is this? This doesn't appear to actually fully answer what to do with summoning the dragon, and where the dragon goes after being released.

@JoelBoulet Hi Joel, please don't add the [gm] tag to questions - we're in an effort to deprecate and eradicate it as it's relatively meaningless.

comment How to Build an Optimized Battle Cleric?
Considering this is D&D, nearly every cleric is a battle cleric in some way. Please do be more specific about what you want to do with them precisely!

comment How do the Injury and Death mechanics work (Flow Chart)
@bennyboy I've rolled back your post, since replying to folks is not what the question is for, even if it's protesting closure. I agree that bringing this to Meta is the best course of action, where we will have a little more room to discuss the matter.
