comment Would striking someone at 0 hit points with an entire Magic Missile spell automatically kill them?
@PremierBromanov That... Doesn't really answer my question? The fact that being hit with multiple magic missiles doesn't require multiple attack rolls is evidence of the fact that magic missile doesn't require attack rolls ever, not that the spell isn't creating multiple injuries. The spell is definitely hitting the target with multiple darts, and each dart deals 1d4+1 damage - there's no ambiguity in the wording. Why is this not multiple instances of getting injured?

comment What stat best represents willpower?
+1 for "There's no one stat for willpower." There's no one stat for a lot of things; That's just the way mechanical abstractions work.

comment What sort of things do demons want when a person makes a pact with them?
Come to think of it, Miniman's right. You need to back this answer up with a reference that describes demonic motivations. (Relevant personal experience probably won't work, since there's a high chance it'll be personal experience of something made up without much basis.)

@PremierBromanov Why does the word "simultaneously" mean that it counts as a single instance of being damaged? If I'm stabbed in the side and the thigh at the same time, I still count that as two separate stabbings.

On your "greed" point - Honestly, an easy option I've found is to start with the seven deadly sins, assume the demon enjoys all of them, and then rank them in order of preference. Then have the demon ask for something that sounds innocuous, but will somehow allow them to indulge in something from the top of the list.

comment Could a wizard research a death-reversal spell?
Historical note: In most earlier editions, the answer was "Yes, but arcane resurrections tend to have side effects." Reincarnate was an arcane spell, but you wouldn't be the same afterwards - and you would be the same afterwards with clone, but that was kind of the problem...

comment Benefits for eating good food
@Aaron You might want to look at Ryuutama, then. In that system, you get +1 to your daily Condition roll if you ate delicious food the previous day.

comment Do you retain the benefits of Vampirism after it has been lifted?
+1 for the list of benefits and drawbacks being consequences of being a vampire, rather than independent and unrelated changes that together get called "vampirism."

comment How do I calculate the level of evolved Pokémon?
While your group's interpretation is plausible, it's not the only plausible one. I've looked at the link you provided, and while it can be interpreted as meaning what you say it does, it could also just be saying that as a Pokemon can evolve at any level, level and evolutionary stage aren't strongly correlated. What makes you believe your group's interpretation to be on the only correct one?

comment Tarrasque: Rush & Jump Skill Interaction
Swallow Hole is, I assume, a loathed and reviled ability that can rob adventurers of every possession they have stored in a non-dimensional space.

There's an easy recipe for eating an air elemental, if you don't mind it being RAW: Polymorph yourself into a Purple Worm and Swallow Whole.

Hmm, nothing limiting the number of creatures that can exist at once? Disposable ablative meat shields, ahoy!
