comment Conditions of readied actions
What if X doesn't do anything, because he's using the same strategy and waiting for you to make a move before he does anything? You could draw the entire combat into a Mexican standoff!

comment What is the sense of a spell/power/effect with Standard Action casting time and only 1 round duration?
@G0BLiN As currently worded, the dot point doesn't address the possibility that a spell can be cast on someone else. Providing a second example where this occurs would do it, with accompanying explanation if you think it's necessary. Whether that should have its own dot point or just be worked into the existing one I leave up to you.

comment What defines a “willing target”?
@starwed Well, as being unconscious counts as willing, you could use it to contact anybody who's asleep. Admittedly, they're unlikely to be particularly coherent while asleep and will probably count as unwilling if the contact wakes them up, but "I get these recurring dreams where someone's talking to me, but wake up whenever I try to make out what they're saying" sounds like a great plot hook, to me.

comment Is the product of the Heavens Mystery revelation “Coat of Many Stars” a valid target for Magic Vestment?
How often does it come up that your character is wearing a Coat of Many Stars and nothing else?

comment What is the sense of a spell/power/effect with Standard Action casting time and only 1 round duration?
Ah, you missed an important one - Sun Metal can be cast on someone else's weapon. Not every spell with a standard action casting time can be cast to benefit someone else, but for the ones that do it's a very significant mitigating feature.

comment How does using this artifact in combat work?
On an unrelated note, remember that an artefact failing its deletion roll means that it still works this time, but that it runs out of power/breaks/phases out of existence immediately afterwards.

comment How does using this artifact in combat work?
Wait, I thought that the NPC wouldn't make a defence roll against the stun at all - Instead, you'd compare the level of the artefact causing the effect (5) to the level of the NPC and decide whether a stun occurred on that basis. The player's already made one roll to see if they affect the NPC with the artefact, and if the NPC is low enough in level to be affected, rolling again is probably not necessary.

comment Does moving around an opponent trigger an Opportunity Attack?
@winterblood Ah, I see - I should've read your wording more carefully. Sorry for causing so much confusion (and thereby spawning this off-topic comment thread.)

comment Does moving around an opponent trigger an Opportunity Attack?
Oh, I thought that movement was taken one square at a time, with the option of changing course during any square of that movement if new information arose as a result of the new positioning. Thanks for clearing that up.

Of course, B wouldn't necessarily know that A was going to provoke three more AoOs after the first, but you never know.

comment Excessively clever characters vs. narrativist RP?
Just to clarify, is the psychological warfare being waged by your character against other characters? Or by you against other players? Because if the latter, you should stop; Psychological warfare has no place in a game played for fun.

Also, if you spend long enough trying to find a way to age yourself, the problem will take care of itself.

comment Do the Enlarge and Shrink spells only really affect damage and AC, or do they do more?
+1 for pointing out that these spells change the target's size.
