comment Do projectiles exist in flight?
@Soulrift The projectile isn't teleporting. Just because there's normally no defined instant for when it's 20' away doesn't mean you can't trigger on it.

Why not trigger on <siege projectile comes within 20 feet> or something like that?

comment 3d6 vs a d20: What is the effect of a different probability curve?
@AceCalhoon Yeah, I have always found the D&D skill checks far too variable. I have seriously considered 3d6 or perhaps even 4d6-4 (gives 0-20 instead of 1-20) for non-combat actions.

comment Can you cast dominate person on yourself?
Another thought: When you cast it upon yourself you're basically dividing your mind into a controller and puppet but you still function normally. When someone else casts it on you what do they hit? The controller or the puppet? I would say the controller as it's the easier target. Thus there's no benefit.

comment How can I thwart a vampire in the party planning on dominating all of us?
How do you not know?? You only rise as a vampire if you die--was he away long enough to die and rise? And unless the vampire that created him is dead he's under it's control, not free willed. And how is he avoiding sunlight?

comment Can my wizard conjure a bedroll so that I don’t have to carry a sleeping mat?
I have a problem with summon bedroll. Powerwise it's obviously a weak 1st level spell--but 1st level spells are normally no more than 1 hr/level.

comment How far can characters see?
The rules-as-written are nonsense. While it might happen to work at certain distances the basic problem is that it scales very differently than reality. If you can just see a human at 1km you'll see an elephant at 2km. RAW means it's 324 harder, reality is that it's about a wash.

I'm warning that the PCs might find a way to thwart his plans to burn the note in the first place and giving an example of how things can go wrong.

comment Why is the full plate armor penalty only -6 when plate arms are at -7?
I would think plate arms without the rest of the armor would be more of an inconvenience as they aren't being supported by the main part of the armor.
