comment How do you increase your combat effectiveness in Anima BF?
@Random Unfortunately, nearly all of Anima's rules focus around combat in some way. Summarising everything from the rules that could grant bonuses is kind of a big task - easily big enough to qualify for our "too broad" close reason. If Aitor Martin Gonzalez posts some more information about what would make a bonus better than another in their eyes (besides "being bigger," obviously), then we'll be automatically notified to re-examine it.

@Random Not having read your comment, I'm guessing it was deleted as obsolete once the OP had responded to it. This is normal. Comments hanging around and not getting deleted is relatively rare; As soon as they've served their purpose, they are removed so as to avoid clutter.

comment Are there any documented rules about owning vanity pets in D&D?
@Codimeister I now have a mental image of a GM shouting angrily "No! You bought the dog, so you have to sit on it!"

comment Why are curative spells referred to as necromancy?
@SevenSidedDie Yeah, like Ruut said. (It is a little confusing that 2e has multiple overlapping spell categories named necromancy, isn't it.)

comment Why are curative spells referred to as necromancy?
@SevenSidedDie You're right that Healing and Necromancy are their own spheres, but I've a recollection that each priest spell description includes the wizard-school-this-spell-would-have-if-it-were-a-wizard-spell, because it's relevant for certain abilities and spells that interact with spells, such as the specialist wizard's bonus to saving throws against spells of their own school.

@Codimeister So in theory, you could buy a mastiff and keep it as a pet instead of sitting on it, and the rules allow that?

Wow, 5e doesn't list prices for buying dogs and horses?

comment Why are curative spells referred to as necromancy?
Hmm, it'd be good if you added a rough overview of what kinds of spells were classified as part of the Necromancy school in editions (at least, for the editions that actually had defined schools of magic). I know 2e classified all cure spells as necromancy, for instance.

comment Getting scimitars to be light without losing class levels?
In thought the rule that "one-handed weapons crafted for small characters count as light in the hands of medium ones" didn't exist in Pathfinder.

comment How does Disguise Self manifest for creatures of very large, very small, or unusually-shaped bodies?
To be fair, there's a reasonable argument that changing the sensory qualities of a thing isn't the same as altering the senses of observers, but the point that the illusion doesn't have to maintain the same location relative to the spell's target is spot-on - It's a smart illusion. +1.

comment Will Team Martial have trouble with encounters?
+1 for endless possibilities. Having an all-martial team isn't intrinsically more or less capable than team divine or team arcane; They just have different capabilities, and so will find different things challenging and discover different solutions to challenges.

comment What role-playing game tactically simulates basketball?
@SevenSidedDie Fair point; I was still thinking in terms of the unedited version of the question.

comment What role-playing game tactically simulates basketball?
While I agree with SevenSidedDie's point that "modifying an existing simulation-heavy game" is a good answer to this question, I think that this answer would be much improved if it focused on that point instead of on this one specific game that could be so modified.

comment How do I read 2d10 as a percentage?
@MarcDingena We use the facing of the player making the roll. That said, it doesn't really matter how you determine which is left and which is right as long as it's unambiguous whenever a roll is made.

comment How many dragons exist in Dragonlance, post War of the Lance? (e.g. 360 AC)
There's the core of a good answer here; If you were to trim this down to that and provide references, it'd be much improved.

@TimothyAWiseman You mean "mussels." Muscles move all the time - that's what they're for.

comment How do I read 2d10 as a percentage?
My group uses the houserule that if your d10s are completely identical, you must read them from left to right when they fall.

comment How to manage play in a zombie RPG pre outbreak
Ah, sorry - I didn't mean to sound like that point wasn't valid; I think it's an important one and that you're right to include it.

comment How to manage play in a zombie RPG pre outbreak
In a film, the first (and zombie-free) act exists to set up the "normal lives" of the characters, and establish who they are outside of the horrible, horrible situations they later find themselves in. Sure, you can learn a lot about someone by seeing how they act in horrible, horrible situations, but unless you can compare that with how they live their lives normally, you'll not fully understand how those horrible, horrible situations change them.

comment How do “the masses” address clerics/paladins & other members of the clergy?
In 3.5, there's no setting-agnostic answer. Unless you specify a setting (and possibly a specific faith) this is either Too Broad or Primarily Opinion-based.
