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.

@Aiken Actually you can and should. As long as your preamble makes it clear what assumptions in the question you're rejecting, and make a good argument for rejecting them, you can make that an answer. In comments it will be deleted.

comment How do you overcome blindness?
@Neil Answers should go in an answer post rather than a comment, even (especially?) when they are challenging the frame of the question. Could you convert that into an answer?

comment Is the DM Always Right?
Being a potentially contentious issue, users beware that comments will be removed at the first hint of conflict or noisiness. So keep it constructive and friendly in the comments!

comment Does a druidic focus count as a material component while in beast shape?
That's exactly the kind of information I was looking for, thanks! I've edited the central doubt into the question. How does that look?

comment Does a druidic focus count as a material component while in beast shape?
Sorry, what is the source of doubt here? The text seems to provide an unambiguous answer already—what problem are we to solve? Is there a conflict of opinions involved that has been omitted from the question?

comment What are the creative limits of Prestidigitation?
@CodyBeaner Sorry, we can't effectively answer questions using these comments. If your problem is that you got into an argument about it, you'd be best served by editing the question to clearly indicate what the point of conflict is, because that is the problem you need solving.

comment What are the creative limits of Prestidigitation?
@CodyBeaner Because that's what prestidigitation says it does? “Trinket” is just an English word, like “rock” or “sandwich”. If prestidigitation said it could produce a small rock that fits in your hand for 6 seconds, that's what it would do. So since it says that it can do that with a trinket, that's what it does. The trinkets listed earlier in the book are good examples of trinkets, but it's not limited to those either.

comment How do you roll against Spell Resistance?
@GreySage Yes, but in a question about the basics, we can presume that a feat that clearly says "This gives you a +4 bonus to overcome SR" doesn't need to be explained.
