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 Where does the idea of using the same character in multiple games come from?
Yes but not really relevant. Porting across genres to other tables has never been a thing. It's always w.g. "here's my old D&D character, I want to bring it into your D&D game." Porting across genres and stuff is done with some of these but that's a completely different kind of scenario.

Again, that's really a separate question.

See Does using "versatile" weapons with 2 hands disqualify them as "Monk Weapons"? for a separate question on versatile weapons and monks in 5e.

Please do not answer this question unless you have a real answer to this question.
