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.

comment How does Empowered Evocation work with Magic Missile?
Actually, given the wording of the spell doesn't combine the darts when the target of the three missiles is the same, I'm pretty sure the damage rolls remain distinct. You still have three targets, just the same creature targetted three times by three missiles. This reading is consistent with both the "once per target" Mearls tweet and the existing once-per-damage-roll wording of Empowered Evocation, whereas the "all missiles at one target means one bonus" requires a rewrite of the ability (as people are complaining on twitter).

@Chryckan Sleeping in clothes is even less encumbering, but if you've every fallen asleep in your day clothes you've noticed that it's not exactly quality sleep. Armour would be worse, including padded.

comment What does “Strength modifier damage” mean?
@mxyzplk It's not a duplicate. It's not misunderstanding what a strength mod is, it's not understanding what the non-existent "str mod damage" is, because they're misreading the words and it's a non-existent game object. (See my answer.)
