Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Started playing with AD&D 1e and GMing with AD&D 2e. Ran D&D 3.x, 4e briefly, then became a fan of indie games and the OSR. Particularly fond of GMless and short-form games because they suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

Where you say "drop 1s", did you actually mean "drop lowest"?

comment Can a character grab a potion from a pack and drink it without using their action?
-1 for seemingly obvious RAW error. "I wouldn't want that to happen because rogues" is not a valid argument for what the rule actually is.

comment Confused about fighter's Two Weapon Fighting Style
The first line stands out as odd to me. Were previous editions mentioned in now-deleted comments? I don't see what it's rebutting otherwise.

comment Can Detect Magic detect prepared spells?
@Dyndrilliac If you read the original question this was inspired by, detecting spellcasters via other means is not exactly relevant; this is specifically about what the capabilities of detect magic are, rules-as-written, in order to clarify a specific point about detect magic.

comment What does the code look like to have background music playing at the start of a game?
@Tritium21 It was already closed when you suggested closing it, so I thought maybe you'd just typoed. After all, questions that are way off-topic are supposed to be deleted eventually.

comment Did Kelemvor lose the death domain to Myrkul?
Anything WotC publishes about the Forgotten Realms is canon, by definition. There's no need to chew that point in the comments, or even really in the question.

@Jason_c_o Answers are not responsible for keeping a question open by avoiding certain ideas. Whether a question is a duplicate or not is based on the question's (de)merits on its own. Answers are free to suggest multi-classing as a (house-ruled) solution.

comment How can I find a challenge/dilemma for my robot character?
Since you've been absent since posting this and confusion over the details of your situation is showing up in answers, I'm voting to put this "on hold" until you're back and can clear up the confusion and flesh out the question's situation a bit more. ("Hold" just prevents people from answering while a question is being fixed up.)
