I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

comment Can I load a hand crossbow while holding a shield?
Please note what game you are playing and what version. If the answer is D&D 5e, I am pretty sure we have an answer to this already.

comment What do I do about a player with the half-celestial template roleplaying badly?
Answerers: Let me be very clear that "is this congruent with a given alignment" and "how should I adjudicate alignment" are off topic per meta.rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/5357/…. This question is remaining open only for the scope of "I have a half-celestial turning non-good, how do I mechanically do that?" Yes, we know this isn't necessarily a good idea, but that discussion is opinion-based and off topic.

comment What is the use of a little bag of sand?
If you just want to make up uses for sand but are not sure why it was included in the 5e equipment list, do not answer this question. This is not a brainstorming list.

Do not answer in comments. This is now open, feel free and answer in an answer, keeping in mind our game-rec requirements.

comment What to do when someone's attacking you, but succeeding the save is worse than failing it?
Please quit with the comments. Answer the question if desired. Though it still looks like a duplicate to me. Closing as duplicate, unless it is edited to be distinct.

comment How to justify a Lord dedicating much needed resources to a meaningless village?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because we don't do idea generation here on RPG.SE - see blog.stackexchange.com/2011/01/real-questions-have-answers

You probably need to read our help center and learn a bit more about our site before posting answers. This isn't a discussion forum - we expect full backed-up answers to questions, not related thoughts or vague opinions.

comment How can I make an overweight character?
If they don't bother to come back and clarify their question, then they're unlikely to benefit from an answer.

comment What's the BAB for Spiritual Weapons created by Crown of Swords?
Yeah but that makes it super powerful for 6000gp at high level, is the real issue... You basically get an attack per round as an immediate action, that's a really darn good ability.

comment How can I make an overweight character?
I'm not sure I like the edit, it assumes he wants mechanical representation while the real question is does he want mechanics per se, or is he just looking to "be fat?" I'd like the OP to chime in and not someone on his behalf...

comment Is there organized D&D play in Central America?
It's OK to ask all three of those in one question, as they're pretty related and tightly scoped, just please be clear about which of them you are asking.
