Co-Founder @ Goblinsama S.r.l.s.

93.3333 degrees that's why they call me Mr. Celsius

Just like "I was just following orders" was not an excuse, "My religion claims I had to do it" is neither. If you behave as an offensive bigot, you are an offensive bigot. Petty excuses will not be tolerated. Ramen.

comment My novice players slaughtered some NPCs out of hand. Do I write this off as a learning mistake or show them the consequences of actions?
-1 for suggesting the retcon: it's so bad, even if you explicitly said you're not a fan, it still makes the whole answer bad, IMAO. Sorry.

comment Are there definitive types of Craft (XYZ)?
+1 but I disagree with point #5: it's a terrible idea. Much better to have bonuses if you have related abilities. No time to explain more in details, sorry.

comment What is available to mitigate the damage of physical blows?
@HeyICanChan lol that's so cool I might even allow that (with consequences).

comment What is available to mitigate the damage of physical blows?
+1 because it's a nice combo, but frankly, ok, you have -30 hp and the spells expire in 3 rounds… what now?

comment How to assign exp for indirect kills
Good answer (+1), but I prefer @Miniman's since he correctly also points out a likely mistake by the GM.

comment Can summon spells be used to summon the same specific creatures repeatedly?
Is the summoned creature actually removed from its plane? I'm kind-of remembering reading somewhere that you were basically summoning a simulacrum of that creature, not the actual creature itself.

comment 20 Stats at level 1 too powerful?
Well, having 20 stats, when most of the people have 6, would be odd to say the least!

comment What is a fair trade for a Paladin's mount in exchange for alternate abilities, feats, and skills, in dungeons and dragons 3.5?
Charging Smite seems really weak (how many times do you actually have a chance to charge?), but the others look cool.

comment My PCs have a plan that will get them all killed; how and why should I save them?
-1 A lot of boring stories start out like this. It's, like, one of the most used clichés, especially in RPGs. Additionally, this doesn't take into account the "accessibility problem", as pointed out in other answers, and that would be the key. Sorry.

comment How do I hint at events outside the scope of the current quest?
This is a really great answer, except the paragraph "Mention It As Something That Happened In Between Scenes": they would complain that "they would have asked the merchant", and, honestly, in this case they would be right. But, again, for everything else this is a great answer!

comment Is a green dragon's breath weapon “poison” for the purposes of “advantage on saves against poison”
Why? After all, if they are resistant to poison, it might also mean that even if they dodge not so well, a slight mistake (i.e. a little bit of poison hits them) might not affect them as much.

comment Things a Paladin with low Wis/Cha can do with his spellcasting ability?
Great suggestion. Even better, to make it feel more "real": attach some kind of non-egregious requirement. I.e. something that he must do every time he casts a spell, or "must not do" in order not to lose some spells temporarily, etc. Maybe his spell slots become available once he does something good, so everyday he must do something good in order to be able to cast?

comment Things a Paladin with low Wis/Cha can do with his spellcasting ability?
IMHO this is a valid answer, but is also quite a bad suggestion. I know this approach sounds "logical", but to many players it would look like cheating, like the path of their character so far has been a lie. Ironically, it would be worse than scrapping the character altogether and create a new one from scratch.

comment What are possible ways to deal with a player who frequently switches characters?
This is totally wrong. There are many questions were the correct answer is "don't let him play", but this is not even remotely so.

comment How often can Intimidating Glare be used?
@Eregrith after the last one, I'd say.

comment How to prevent conflict between characters from becoming conflict between players?
Obligatory question: if "nobody could bear him anyway, in a game as in real life" why was he invited at all?

comment Can a spell be prepared once and cast multiple times?
"I can't speak to the exact reason behind the design decision" really? Like, "because otherwise situational spells were NEVER going to be used", isn't it obvious?

comment What happens if a Summoner's Eidolon is sent 100 years into the future?
@Danny how does he force you to play with him, anyway?

comment Are risks of non-combat death exciting or just frustrating and discouraging?
@GMJoe sandbox is absoutely compatible with this play style, instead.

comment Is there a way to browse Scabard's characters, irrespective of their campaign?
Currently I'm just using as a very vague inspiration: basically I look at a character, and I re-create a new character using a few aspects of that one as a source. I considered using it to build my campaign, but currently I opted for using a wiki instead – I don't rule out switching to it in future, though currently I'm a bit unaware of its pros and cons.
