comment Party communication across languages
+1 for pointing out that knowledge kept secret from a character doesn't always need to be kept secret from the player. Where to draw the line depends on the campaign, of course, but I've found most players are willing to maintain separation of player/character knowledge if it means they get to be 'in on the joke.'

comment How can a land-based Druid have a Shark (or aquatic) animal companion?
For some reason I always imagine the fins to feet spell giving its target inappropriately human-looking legs. I only hope I'm wrong, or your shark may look like an otherwise-naked guy is wearing a realistic shark suit.

comment Can I wield an enchanted spiked shield and magic weapon in the same hand?
Gah, you're right - I should've proofread and fact-checked.

comment Can I wield an enchanted spiked shield and magic weapon in the same hand?
To clarify, items held in your hands usually do not take up your arms slot; Your arms slot is more for bracers and stuff like that. I suspect the reason for pointing out that magical shields don't take up an arms slot is because shields are strapped to your arm and some players might wonder about it.

comment Are there negative impacts to having characters advance at different rates?
+1 for pointing out that whether it's a problem depends partially on playstyle.

comment Using Careful Spell on a wild magic fireball
@CataruMoore I think you mean "oxymoron" or "contradiction in terms" rather than "double negative;" Neither of the terms you mention is a negation, except (arguably and circumstantially) of the other.

comment What's the best way to make travel time more interesting?
I can't help but feel like I should reference Ryuutama somehow, but I've not enough experience with it to come up with anything good.

@CataruMoore It's a popular webcomic with many references to 3.5rd edition D&D.

comment In D&D Next, is 4 hours long enough for a long rest for Elves and Warforged?
@NicolasDaoust Perhaps you should make that an answer?

The OP was asking for an official answer; This answer is largely speculation. Please clearly indicate which bits are speculation on your part, so that the OP might more easily judge how useful it would be to them.

You should edit your answer to fit the current question, then.

Why not just make simulacra of yourself to begin with?

comment How to easily come up with improvised dialogue
@OliverLong Yes, exactly. You can't prepare an answer for each and every possible question that players can come up with. Instead, you need a way of preparing those answers on-the-fly, and for that you need to have a solid understanding the personality doing the answering.

comment Can a sleeping character Hide?
You seem to be conflating concealment and cover, which are handled as two separate things in 3.5rd edition: Concealment (being hard to see) provides a miss chance rolled seperately from each attack roll, and cover (being behind something) provides a bonus to AC, or makes hitting impossible. In any case, are there any rules that describe how concealment % (not cover) affects spot checks?

comment Can a sleeping character Hide?
Are there any rules for how concealment interacts with spot checks? Also, from memory, 50% concealment represents being completely invisible - What should 100% represent?
