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 does “Strength modifier damage” mean?
This is a duplicate because it's not misunderstanding [w] or how to add it to the str mod, it just doesn't understand what a strength mod is, and that is covered by the linked question.

comment How best to include a 4-5 year old in a D&D 5e game
Is this intended to be a general game for other people with a 4.5 and 9 year old also participating, or is this just a game "for the kids"?

comment How can I design balanced customized hexes for witches?
Even the "designing new spells" part of Pathfinder is pretty terse (paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/ultimateMagic/magic/…) and this is mainly asking how designing hexes differs from that, so its scope is acceptable for the site.

comment How long does it take to try to break manacles?
Many games just don't allow retries unless there is a change in circumstance. I often implement that in my D&D games.

comment Is two-weapon fighting only as a full-round action balanced versus fighting with a two-handed weapon?
87 to 82 is a virtual tie given all the variables in play here. And Bleeding Critical does indeed stack with itself unlike most bleed effects, see d20pfsrd.com/feats/combat-feats/…. Of course the two-hander himself can sicken the shaken using his cruel weapon enhancement.
