comment How do I deal with PCs who are evil?
@Sandwich Yeah, I'm not fond of the change either. If it makes you feel any better, they brought back Chaotic Good and Lawful Evil in 5e.

comment Will there be Dungeon Master Kit for 5e?
I feel kind of bad for bringing this up, but I should warn you that your son might not necessarily want to switch to 5th edition if he's already used to 4th. Neither is inherently "better" than the other; They differ, but which edition is preferable is a matter of personal taste. (Of course, many people like both, so this may well not be a problem.)

comment Do gauntlets do anything?
Gauntlets are a vital tool if your character wants to challenge someone to a duel.

comment Is a Bluff check necessary when telling the truth?
I've got a vague memory that the PHB's text for the bluff skill (unlike the SRD text) specifies that the Bluff skill is worded something like "used to convince people of things that they would be inclined to disbelieve" but without my books handy I can't check.

comment How many scrolls can I have deciphered at once?
Also - just because it was explicitly called out in the title of the question - there is no limit to the number of scrolls a character can decipher. Well, presumably they'll die of old age or run out of scrolls at some point, but they can keep on increasing the number deciphered until that point.

comment Can fireball burn away vegetation 'enhanced' by Entangle?
@Mourdos Expanding on Smither's comment, spells that create a Spread effect, like fireball, do indeed wrap around things and turn corners: d20srd.org/srd/magicOverview/spellDescriptions.htm

comment How to expose information without making a villain monologue
@MrJinPengyou So give them inobvious evidence. My players love taking the clues they find in the environment and putting together theories about what might be going on that they don't know about.

comment How to expose information without making a villain monologue
@MrJinPengyou Mr Johnson has to present the receipts to the Accounting department. "Plausible deniability" is valuable when it allows you to avoid prosecution, but not when you can't justify a multi-million nuyen expenditure to your boss.

comment What is the duration of a spell from a magic item?
Note that if the text of the magic item specifies a different duration to the one the caster level would indicate, the text takes precedence.
