comment Are risks of non-combat death exciting or just frustrating and discouraging?
Hmm, this is good advice for some play styles, but not all - It might be considered inappropriate in a pure sandbox, for instance. Could it perhaps be expanded?

@BrianBallsun-Stanton If you see this message, always choose retry.

comment Are risks of non-combat death exciting or just frustrating and discouraging?
Hmm, this seems like it'd depend heavily on the preferences and playstyle of the table - so I guess a good answer would have to address a variety of different playstyles (possibly with reference to the same-page tool).

comment Problems to look out for if you are a D&D group who play Fate for the first time?
@Cristol.GdM Blame the cure blank wounds spells; If hit points aren't damage, these spells are poorly named; If those spells are aptly named, then hit points must include damage. The same is not true of stress boxes, which clear instantly the moment a stressful situation ends.

comment What to do with the man of few words who can't seem to shut up? (quiet character, talkative player)
You seem to be describing a large number of not-really-related issues: A campaign style that you feel denies you opportunities to roleplay, a character personality that doesn't fit with the role you find yourself playing in the party, adventures that don't fit the motivations you have established for the character... Each of these is a different problem with a different solution. If you could ask separate questions for each, they would be easier for us to answer.

comment What sort of cheat sheets should a new DM have for a better flowing 5e game of Dungeons and Dragons?
Ah, you intend this as a frame challenge? Hmm. Could you make that a little clearer, perhaps?

Much of this answer seems to be dedicated to information that doesn't answer the question.

comment What furniture does a beholder have in its personal quarters?
I suspect this answer is gaining downvotes because it doesn't cite a source, and therefore appears to be made from whole cloth.

comment Does all adamantine gear deteriorate in sunlight?
@Miniman Drow-made magic items and adamantine gear degrading in sunlight is a thing from earlier editions' versions of the Forgotten Realms, I believe. I don't know if it's been carried forward into 5e.

comment How can I establish a permanent travel route between two planes?
This feat is also found in the Stronghold Builder's Guidebook, which was a 3.0 resource that (to my knowledge) was never updated to 3.5rd edition, and so is presumably still valid.

comment Do Neraphim Get any Armor Proficiency?
@AgentAquarius Upon looking at the SRD, it looks like KRyan is correct. I should have said "Note that the Neraphim (or other outsider) gets proficiency with the armour they're described as wearing in addition to the armour proficiencies provided by their class." It's a little hard to find a citation for this, save for the general observation that if a creature gets armour proficiency from any source, it doesn't lose it as a result of taking a class.

comment Do Neraphim Get any Armor Proficiency?
Note that if the Neraphim (or other outsider) has racial hit dice, they get proficiency with the armour they're described as wearing in addition to the armour proficiencies provided by their class.

comment How to model a Globe of Invisibility power
Important question: Does the limitation that the power only affects creatures mean that Dave's clothing is unaffected?

comment What are the limits to the genesis power?
@PaulMarshall At the levels where the genesis power is available, it's not unlikely that the gate spell would be the preferred way to enter the plane.
