Clearly this means that all NPC Aarakocra have 1 level of Monk. /s

comment Mechanical side effects of randomised Initiative in 5e
One optional rule I recall from the 2e PHB or DMG was the option to roll initiative at the start of each round instead of just once at the start of combat. This makes combat less predictable -- which appears to be your primary goal -- but allows effects which modify initiative to still have an effect. Something to consider. It doesn't have the benefit of not revealing the next character to act until the previous character has finished, however.

comment What might be the downside of taking “Duelling” over “Great Weapon Fighting”?
To be complete, 1d12 weapons average 7.33 and 2d6 average 8.33. That means the style is still pretty poor, however, adding only +0.8333 damage and +1.3333 damage, respectively. The real value of two-handers is usually considered to be the Great Weapon Master feat.

comment Is Command spell a charm?
Also note that spells like suggestion, which don't apply the charmed condition but special charm defenses still apply will specify so in the spell description: "Creatures that can't be charmed are immune to this effect."

comment What language would a Great Old One warlock cast spells in?
Strictly speaking, it might be R'lyehian if the Great Old One in question were Cthulu (although the rules don't state this language anywhere I've seen), but creatures from the Cthulu mythos are not the only Great Old Ones given. I doubt thralls to Tharizdun would know R'lyehian.

comment How is a damage rounded for damage resistance?
Note that this is why you're directed on page 197 to apply resistance and then vulnerability to damage in that specific order. The rounding rule means they're not equivalent.

comment How does Naga Rejuvenation work?
The closest analog is a Lich, whose body reforms from mist or smoke given off by the phylactery, or a clone spell, which grows a new body over 4 months. Sadly, the most accurate term for what Nagas do is probably "respawn". Perhaps the "immortal spirit" forms a cocoon or soft-shelled egg and regrows from that. Perhaps it coalesces from fragments of dreams. Perhaps it orders a new body from Acme, Inc. The precise mechanism isn't that important and is left (intentionally?) as an exercise for the DM. All that's important is that Nagas are immortal and will reform in a few days.

comment Does Ray of Enfeeblement affect a Hunter's Mark too?
This is also consistent with how Resistance and Vulnerability work (PHB 197). First all addition and subtraction modifiers are applied, and then you divide and multiply. If it ever matters, it appears to go ((damage + extra damage) / divisor) * multiple, meaning you halve (and thus round down) before you double.
