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 Limits on Cleric's Mending?
Yeah for the rust traditionally there's the slightly higher level spell "make whole," but that's not in 5e yet.

If he's a Rogue Trader isn't there a big NPC crew?

No arguing over GNS in comments. Take the GNS link in his question as given for the scope of this question.

As long as it bears on the OP's problem, other systems are fine.

comment How to Reconcile the MERP/RM High-Magic System with the Low-Magic Middle Earth Setting?
I think this can be answered fine using Good Subjective, Bad Subjective guidelines. Opinions are not welcome, only experience from those who have run middle-earth games and balanced the "rule system magic" vs the "setting magic."

comment How can I imprison my characters for a long period of time?
If you aren't going to play it out and just have it be GM fiat, then I'm not sure what you're looking for here. "You were in jail! You couldn't escape, the tenth level warden beat the bejeezus out of you every time you tried. Now, 20 years later..."

comment How can I create a character with a gryphon mount?
You have changed your question significantly - try not to do that, ask new questions. If now you also want to know "how can I get an animal companion or divine bond as an arcane spellcaster (without multiclassing I guess as that's pretty obvious)" you should open that as a new question rather than invalidating previous answers.
