comment Exactly, what is an encounter?
I've always considered to be a little boolean flag that sits on your person. Like in World of Warcraft where you can't get on your mount when you're "in combat".

comment When rolling percentages, do 1d100 and two d10s (percentiles) share the same probabilities?
Simanos, this is not about summing dice. Rather this is about simulating dice (which is what the question is about). I recognize that this topic is more advanced, and would probably not come up in play except in simple circumstances. (I have used 1d4 + 1d6 to simulate a d8 before - take the 1d4 result and add 4 if the 1d6 is odd, for instance. I would not have a need for simulating a d640. As for what I mean by +, you should read my opening paragraph where I cover the distinction. So your comment tells me "This was a confusing answer because I didn't actually read it."

comment Are class and feat based proficiencies cumulative?
Would you consider that a binary state? Or rather a Boolean state?

comment What is the most damage-oriented barbarian build (without any regard to defences)?
@Joshua As a 50k+ rep user and SE moderator, I'm very well versed in how comments should and should not be used. My comment is on the eligibility of his build and whether or not it (in a true RP sense) would be capable of dealing the kinds of damage he wants to.

comment What is the most damage-oriented barbarian build (without any regard to defences)?
I've always found it odd that 1) increasing strength always comes at the expense of intelligence and 2) anyone with that low of intelligence is capable of doing any reasonable amount of damage. I've always just assumed someone could just step out of the way of someone running at them with an int of 3 and they would just keep running until they hit something, probably the wall.

In America there is football EVERYWHERE, but most people don't play it.

comment How can I effectively drop clues of corruption in my campaigns?
Wow... I had considered asking almost this exact question before, as I'm designing a (mobile/web) game. The roadmap on this is exactly what I was looking for, as the world is incredible corrupt.

comment Does a Barbarian's Rage End When He Becomes Unconscious?
It also comes from you just hit a barbarian in the head. If that doesn't cause him to rage at you when he wakes up, I don't know what will!!

comment Does flight warrant Move Silently checks?
@dlras2 I absolutely agree. I was speaking from a roleplaying point of view, not a rollplaying point of view =)

comment Does flight warrant Move Silently checks?
It's not the butterflies wings that make them move "silently" - it's that they have so little mass, there's very little energy required to move them, which creates very little waste energy (aka sound). If the butterfly was as big as a Half-Fae, it would make a lot of noise.

comment When creating a scroll, how should the scroll's cost be handled in-game?
True story: adding the last line of this answer to any answer makes it correct.
