comment Can I use my familiar to cast Warding Bond on myself?
Careful with the cancelling out: resistance doesn't stack, so if you have another source of resistance, you'll take extra damage because of this spell.

comment 5E Trap/Ambush/Stealth Mechanics VS Passive Perception Confusion
"and let's not forget the Rogues Expertise ability: double your proficiency bonus when making checks with two chosen proficient abilities + thieves tools." – Just in case there is any confusion here, the thieves tools aren't automatically one of those he's expert in; it can be chosen instead of one of the two proficiencies.

comment How many bomb attacks does my 8th-level Bomber Alchemist get with a Full Attack?
What are the to-hit modifiers? I get +10/+10/+10/+5/+5 at point blank range, does that look right?

comment Close-quarters spellcaster – Not a gish
(And, to clarify, I thought the aim was to create a close quarters caster, with Mountain Dwarf as a strong contender. Sorry to start out by writing it off!)

comment Close-quarters spellcaster – Not a gish
Yes, the contrast was all I was aiming for! 5e still strongly encourages using a race that boosts your primary stat, so I'm really struggling to find any build at all that makes use of the Mountain Dwarf's medium armour proficiency (even if not limited to spell casters).

But you still can cast them from higher level. That 4/1 character can still cast burning hands at 3rd level, even though he can't cast 3rd level spells.

Watch out for the strength requirement for heavy armour. 15 Str is a big ask if you are not going to hit things with it!

comment Reputed Magical Effects of Real-World Herbs
Hmm, that link was the first thing I found when searching for the product, so not critical. I have added the publisher and ISBN so the book can be found more easily. Is that sufficient?

comment What are the implications of using AC rolls for defense?
And watch out for criticals. I suppose you could cast them as fumbled defence rolls, instead?
