comment House Rules for AD&D Character Generation (1e+)
@MadHatter - sorry, didn't notice your question. I'm definitely in favour of the "heroes not super heroes" mantra. I hate the idea of overpowered characters but do think the average for a PC should probably be slightly higher than average for the wider population if that makes sense? So I'm in favour of 17, 16, 15, 12, 10, 8 type spreads of ability scores, against 18, 17, 16, 16, 13, 10.

I quite like the idea of improving ability scores though I'm not sure that at the frequencies you're suggesting it wouldn't overpower characters relatively quickly. Similarly HP - I can see that you want to avoid very weak characters but other than saying reroll ones (just once, roll a one again and live with it), I'd personally stick close(r) to the rules as written.

comment Do you get a save vs Falling Damage?
And I guess the 3 in 6 is a guide for a typical pit which the PM can adjust based on specific circumstances.

comment Is it possible to turn Tenser's Floating Disk into a chariot?
But how do you tether the "plate" to the chariot? I think the word disk is misleading, it seems the correct way to think about it more like an electro-magnetic field which creates a disk like area rather than as a physical object.

Re. sleep - sleep is both a noun and a very and does work (again, expressly stated in the PHB).

@AceCalhoon - suicide is not a verb. It's not to suicide, it's to commit suicide. Commit is the verb, suicide is a noun. As it goes the PHB specifically mentions that suicide won't work for this reason.

The PHB specifically says suicide won't work (it's a noun) but other good suggestions.

Die only causes them to collapse for a round. Undress is an interesting one though.
