@HeyICanChan off the top of my head, no. I'd take a look in those parts of DMG and PHB that deal with the game flow, but I don't have the books at the moment.

@HeyICanChan Yes. Nothing happens until announced by DM.

@HeyICanChan I'm afraid we're having a slight confusion here over an in-universe action and an out-of-universe action resolution mechanic. Attacking is either hitting or missing, sure; making a roll is just that, rolling a die. Off the top of my head there's nothing in rulebook about that, but it is obvious for any sane person that there IS a finite, greater than zero, noticeable and measurable interval of time between player announcing the attack roll result and GM announcing the attack outcome. Is my point clearer now?

@HeyICanChan There actually is. You roll and you announce your attack result, at which point (in the middle of attack roll resolution, sure) the attack's outcome is already determined BUT you don't yet know what it is, since DM didn't yet told if the attack hit. And that's before we factor in miss chances, immediate actions of the defender, et cetera.

Missed the "doesn't fix death from old age" part.

Well, about this 2-hd business. Revivify spell from Miniatures Handbook (Cleric5, Healer5) is a resurrection without attached hd or con loss. It has other drawbacks, though.

Ah, common sense, physics and d&d. Choose one!

comment Can a spellcaster use Harmonic Chorus on himself?
This line of reasoning is understandable, but dangerous. Would you really follow the "what is not prohibited is allowed" way in your D&D? And maybe my English is not good enough, but I can't see how "another spellcaster" is an ambiguous designator.

revised Does a summoned monster's alignment matter?
Outsider is a creature type. Extraplanar is a qualifier for creatures not on their home plane. These notions are clearly not the same, so rolling that edit back.

Thanks for the comprehensive answer! Though I must point out immediately that "attack roll not yet happened" and "attack roll happened but the outcome is still unknown to character" do not differ from the character's point of view.
