comment I'm DMing for a party of two. How can I make sure my players have classes that can play well together?
Could you clarify: did you adjust any/all the encounters? Or did you play them as is, same numbers etc. as published?

comment Does every specialization of Craft you take get the class skill bonus, or just the first?
I think this answer emphasises something missing in the first: that you don't get the +3 bonus in another craft until you spend a point in that specialty.

comment Sword-and-board balance in D&D
At this point I'd be quite happy to restrict it to 3.5 or Pathfinder. But I don't want to invalidate the couple of good answers that have answered it for the other versions!

comment How to choose between dual wielding and two hand weapon fighting
Note that Divine Strike (not Spiritual Weapon) triggers on the first hit, not the first attack. This makes multiple attacks useful by increasing the chance of landing at least one attack. Not nearly as useful as an ability that applies every attack, but still, it does make up for the loss of a bonus action.

comment Are peoples' competencies really as flat in D&D 5e as its math suggests?
Note also that just having repeated contests exaggerates any difference. Simply running the contest as five rolls with the winner being the one who wins the most would skew the odds substantially in the athlete's favour. No need for advantage/disadvantage.

comment Gauntlets & Spiked Gauntlets: How do they work?
Regarding 'drawing' gauntlets, etc. would the following work? Gauntlets are not considered to be wielded so long as another item is in the hand. They are automatically 'drawn' (wielded) if the hand becomes empty. Weapon enchants (such as Eager) only apply to wielded weapons.

Just check first that they aren't actually an evil corporate executive…

comment Can Paranoia be revamped to be a cooperative game?
I'm confused, citizen. Unco-operative behaviour is treasonable and is never condoned. Perhaps you require some attitude adjustment therapy…

comment What is the best way to teleport back and forth between your current location and your base?
I think you could pass the bag back through and have the remaining character climb in and be brought through too: 'A character can reach through to grab things near the other ring…'. You would have to leave the other ring behind, although you do want that so you can get back again.

comment How can I satisfy my RP desire of Knighthood?
True. Any other feat or class ability you can think of?

You could fluff the Leadership feat as receiving a knighthood, perhaps? Or some other class ability or feat?
