comment Moving from AD&D 2nd Edition to D&D 5th Edition
This is into a category of possibly on topic questions now, but it's too broad - you're asking about 5+ different questions and making a bunch of observations which I assume are invitations to discussion. Can you focus this question down on one specific problem you have, one question? It's often helpful to think about what your real problem is (as opposed to "ones you might have"). I'm afraid "suggestions in general on going to 5e", "suggestions in general on GMing," etc. are all individually too broad to be answerable questions.

comment Actions after a Grapple
One question per question please, or at least a set of tightly linked questions. These are all pretty different. And it's unclear whether those are really questions, or whether they are rhetorical questions just setting up your last statement making your question "the raw is goofy right?" which isn't a good question.

comment How do I play a paladin without being a stick in the mud?
@András not appropriate - this poster is asking about Pathfinder. Paladin rules are different in different editions and the latitude of their actions is different. If you have this question for a specific game, feel free and ask it.

comment Can you 5-foot step while entangled
While I would rule that way too, this question explicitly asks for RAW.

comment Past tense for smite
I suspect many uses of "smited" are an attempt to turn the verb into an adjective via past participle, not as a past tense per se - "When the paladin hits with a smite, the smited target..." In this case, however, "smitten" is correct.

comment Does Kelemvorian doctrine allow lying / cheating, and under what circumstances?
This should be answered given written lore in Kelemvor only - random philosophizing will run this afoul of our "no alignment discussion" rule.

comment A player was bucking my style and I lost my temper. What can I do from here?
Your reputation is already ruined at that store due to your actions, this is the way you get it back.

comment Where can I read more about religions in Forgotten Realms?
All those books for previous editions haven't burst into flames... They're still usable for god lore.

@KorvinStarmast I'm getting kinda tired of deleting your identical comments off every answer. Contribute your own answer if you disagree with others'.

comment Our DM is trying to kill us
Do you seriously consider "there's a chance one of our PCs might die" to be a reason to "fire" a GM? Seems like it's unlikely to get you steady play groups.

comment How should I implement a matador's cape used as a shield?
"Equivalent to a shield in utility" does not equal "is mechanically identical to a shield" - but, this question is still a little vague in that it seems to be polling for "ways a cape could be implemented." More direction as to what effects you had in mind would be better. Just defense? Letting you attack back? At least a class of effect would help focus this from being a pure brainstorm.

comment How does using Speed Factor initiative affect the speed of play?
Please read blog.stackoverflow.com/2010/09/good-subjective-bad-subjective, we expect good answers here to be sourced or experience based, speculation tends to get downvotes.

comment How would one become a Lord of the Nine Hells?
None of this is defined, it'll be setting dependent and require working with your GM. I'm afraid this question can't have a good answer here as a result.

comment What's the optimal use of a level four attribute point?
I agree with @KRyan, this is very goal dependent and you're not really stating goals. There's no objectively-best-for-all-situations answer. Let me place this on hold to get some clarification.

comment Is it possible to betray the party in D&D?
New answerers - please read the other answers first and don't just add an answer that says the exact same thing. That's what upvotes are for.
