comment What are KRyan's full set of Houserules for D&D 3.5e?
@BESW I've just read over rpg.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic and rpg.stackexchange.com/help/dont-ask, and can't find anything there that explains why this question is off-topic. Do those pages need to be amended?

KRyan's knowledge isn't part of the Stack's collective expertise?

comment Mind Control: What's a Dominate Person between allies?
@Simanos It doesn't actually require that you share a language (you can give basic commands even without one) and you give commands through a telepathic link rather than through speaking, so it's possible to interpret that as controlling the content of the victim's thoughts rather than transmitting commands in the caster's recognisable voice.

comment What is the impact of sharing GM notes with the players?
Also note that in some kinds of campaigns, players might be able to go back and reclaim the things they 'missed' - which is to say, even if the adventure ends, telling players they missed stuff might lead to disappointment.

comment How does the abstraction of AC make sense when flat-footed?
+1 for pointing out that facing is a relevant casualty of abstraction.

comment Is there any reason to why the list of undead that can be frightened seems counter intuitive?
Could this perhaps be a historical thing - maybe something to do with turning resistance?

comment What are KRyan's full set of Houserules for D&D 3.5e?
@Tritium21 I guess this is technically a "read the rules to me" question, but in this case the rules to be read aren't actually unavailable anywhere, so the usual "did not do the research" justification for closing it doesn't apply.

comment What are KRyan's full set of Houserules for D&D 3.5e?
@Tritium21 Hmm... I view it as just another question asking about specific rules - the only unusual feature is that the rules being asked about are from a private source, rather than a published one.

comment Can Goodberry be used to summon watermelons?
The spell actually says you can use an action to eat a berry - but not whether you have to eat the whole berry; Arguably it'd be enough to take a single bite. Of course, if you take that argument too far, you could end with players licking watermelons to gain the full effects of eating them...

comment Awarding XP when a player guesses an NPC's motivations
Another thing to consider: Giving a player experience for guessing the answer to a puzzle tells they player that their proposed answer is correct. That's fine sometimes, but under other circumstances you might want to preserve the ambiguity.

comment Can Goodberry be used to summon watermelons?
@nitsua60 Werll, goodberry is a divine spell, so possibly a god chooses. Or one of the god's servants. Or the high priest. Or maybe the acolyte who makes the coffee decides based on whatever berry is on sale that week.

comment Too many players: Is it possible to adjust Lost Mines of Phandelver to cater for more than 5 players?
You might want to look at some of the other questions on this site about running games for more than the recommended number of players.

comment How should the DM manage the discrepancy between the player's memory and their PC's memory?
+1 for pointing out that while the players may have experienced a week of other stuff to deal with between sessions, their characters will have experienced far fewer distractions while their time was frozen.

comment What do we do with a group member who brazenly cheats?
When you say he "tries to solve problems with science", what exactly do you mean? Does he claim the existence of bogus physical laws that would allow him to achieve otherwise impossible things? Does he just say "I'll use science" and then smash things? Does he try and create gunpowder in a setting that hasn't discovered it despite his character having the intelligence of a pidgeon and no knowledge of alchemy? If you clarify the nature of the behaviour we may be better able to help you deal with it.

comment Optimal Wizard build giving a strongest Monk flavor ( touch or cone attack centered )
@Escoce After going up a level, you still have all the experience points required to gain that level - that doesn't sound like an expenditure.

comment Optimal Wizard build giving a strongest Monk flavor ( touch or cone attack centered )
The trick to building a good magi-user is finding magi who don't mind being used.

comment Cost for a Wand / Ring / Whatever of Unlimited Prestidigitation?
I suggest the hand of the mage is a comparable magic item.
