comment Can a good cleric prepare Inflict Light Wounds?
I feel like the line about the Cure spells not being necromancy could be made a little clearer.

comment What weapon training is required to fire ship weapons?
You should definitely edit that information into your question, since identifying the precise point of your confusion always helps those able to clear it.

comment Can a Winged Kobold drop any heavy object as an attack?
On the other hand, if a PC manages to somehow enslave a winged kobold and has a specially-designed spiked rock made by a local smith - Well, feel free to give them points for effort.

comment Can a holy symbol take some artistic license?
Beware of players making a holy symbol in the shape of, say, a sword, and then trying to take it into no-weapons bars on the grounds that "no-one would confiscate a holy symbol!"

comment What weapon training is required to fire ship weapons?
Given that Rogue Trader ships have crews measured in thousands, chances are you won't actually be firing the weapon yourself in the sense of pulling-the-trigger-makes-the-hammer-hit-the-powder; Instead, you'll be directing the team who makes the guns go to teach the machine spirit the correct bearing and yaw, then yelling "Fire!"

comment What are the rules on training NPCs?
+1 for going into all the options that exist, and for noting that anything outside of what is noted here is up to GM fiat. Because that is the correct answer.

comment What are the rules on training NPCs?
@Kaz_king If you could learn to cast spells from a wizard in under an hour, there'd be a lot more wizards around, many of whom would be munchkins with class levels.

comment Does Poison's secondary damage only happen once, or does it keep happening?
The SE format doesn't handle followup questions well. It does, however, handle multiple different questions well - so I recommend you create a new question for that "multiple vials = multiple saving throws" question.

comment How can I build a magical Non-Directional Beacon?
@Shalvenay Whether 5000 feet above a city counts as being in the city is dependent on how much vertical space above a block of land counts as owned for legal purposes. I recommend you consult your kingdom's land ownership laws before takeoff.

comment What level should a one-shot 5-round time travel magic item be?
Every time travel related magical effect of this type that I've seen either took steps to limit the scope of bookkeeping required (only one round of travel, only the user's condition is 'reset,' using the device causes fluctuations in reality that changes everyone's condition anyway, it only takes you back to when you were in perfect condition, etc.) or somehow allowed the GM to choose a specific destination time, in order to pick one with known details.

comment How can I ride my Pseudodragon?
Wait, so both feats in combination would let you ride a mount smaller than yourself? "Go forth, Mr. Fuzzykins! Carry me to victory!"

comment How to create meaningful relationships with NPCs
@ThalesSarczuk I agree it's more an issue of style, but particular engines can support and encourage certain game styles more than others, so I'm with doppelgreener on wanting more detail.
