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 What can I do when the GM dislikes my choices in play?
Hint: An answer that is really just validation or a set of your related gaming stories appended with a 'talk to them' is not really a very good answer to this question.

You're not really giving any constructive things to do in your answer besides just validating her rant... Besides "talk" I guess but hasn't that been adequately covered already?

comment When teaching D&D 5e basic to players of previous editions, which terms have new meanings that will likely lead to confusion?
Yeah, this question is way too vague. No term ever means exactly what it does in other editions even if it's used for the same general purpose, so saying this "solves the problem of stuff I could just assume vs stuff I need to actually read" is specious.

comment Do you still roll a saving throw against effects that your character is immune to?
In reality, the real world, our world, with players sitting at the game table, in practice, people don't pick up the die and roll it when they are immune to something.

comment Trivial Knowledge vs Kirin Path
All questions here are subject to Good Subjective. There is not a tag for that, just a tag for game-recs because people lose their damn minds and don't follow it there more than usual.

comment What are the stand-out features of D&D 5e?
Please only answer this question keeping in mind our site guidance from Good Subjective, Bad Subjective. "I think it will do X" is not a good answer, only "I have played it and tried these things and it supported it well."

Do not answer in comments. That's what answers are for.

comment What are the stand-out features of D&D 5e?
I feel like an answer to the question above that has zero 5e play and is based on a cursory reading of the rules is by its nature Bad Subjective and based on speculation, not experience.
