comment Can I cast a spell and attack in the same turn?
Another recent option (Nov 2015) is the Bladesinger (Wizard archetype). This introduces two cantrips that effectively require a melee attack as part of their cost: Green-Flame Blade & Booming Blade.

comment Unarmed Strikes while mounted
Note that the player could dismount and remount for a very limited amount of movement here without provoking an opportunity attack. So unless they're running across vast plains, that may be a reasonable part of the answer.

comment Can monsters with multiattack take grapple and shove actions?
Sure, but the original question does not have a RAW tag, so that's not necessarily what they are looking for. Likewise, I think it's really important to note that implementing these changes as the DM does not effectively change the DC of the monster (according to even more RAW).

Don't have the PHB handy, but I believe that you get advantage on the Shove against the Grappled creature?

comment Do Crossbows add Dex to damage?
In 3.5 & Pathfinder they did not. In fact bows added Strength to damage with a bunch of limitations.

comment Do Crossbows add Dex to damage?
But they seem to be consistently different. The Knight and Veteran both have Heavy Crossbows with no damage bonus, while the Assassin and Bandit use Light Crossbows and do get a damage bonus. Looks like "Drow" and "Half-Dragon" veteran are consistent with damage bonuses on both Light and Heavy, so I just had to look further to find exceptions to their exceptions.

comment What are the ramifications of switching primary attributes of a spellcasting class?
Yep, but they did this because the Paladins suffered from the "too many stats" problem. They needed Cha for their save boost and Wis for their casting and Str for combat and Con so they wouldn't die while tanking and it was just too many stats. Back in 2e you basically had to "roll well" on stats to even qualify for a Paladin because of the ability score requirements.

comment Allowing players at too low a level to enter Wave Echo Cave
Yep, you're right :) But if you don't want them to get to the mines at level two, it's perfectly OK to change that rule :)
