Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Have been playing and GMing D&Ds from B/X to D&D 5e. Becoming a fan of indie games and the OSR in the mid 2000s expanded my horizons for both trad and indie games. Fond of GMless and short-form games that suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

Lucas, can you incorporate anything in this comment exchange you consider to have lasting value, and relevance to the answer, into the body of the answer? Thanks!

comment Are there stats for the Roman Scutum in any supplement?
@Ruut Remember that untested homebrew has no place in answers here. Your judgements and result experience about that in your own game are going to be 100% better than nvoigt opining about them here, which would impair the quality of the answer anyway. As it aptly says, “You decide.”

comment Simple, classless system for normals exploring ruins of ancient high fantasy world
4th ed. made Disciplines optional?! Wow. Well, perhaps note that if they pick up older Earthdawn books on sale, that's very much not the case. Did they also make Adepts no longer distinctly different from the "normals", or make Adept-ness not the starting default?

comment Will a spellcaster interrupted mid-preparation have spells they did not use during the previous adventuring day?
@Shalvenay Not exactly. For the arcane option to replace spells, those are gone. It's only the ones you're not replacing that are untouched. The preparation process itself is atomic, though, as established in that other question.

revised Can you use the D&D 5e player's handbook in a 3.5e game?
it should ideally be not two links anyway since it's one compound noun; moving the "Flailsnails" link to the first mention is probably more useful anyway

@HeyICanChan Hey, nice. I didn't know that existed. Unfortunately the file itself is a 404 error. :( On the plus side I have a copy in my old "3.5 stuff" archive, so I can update the answer! :) But that isn't something I can link to. :(
