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.

comment Does Arcane Lock Make An Object More Resistant to Damage?
@Strill Yes, breaking something and attacking it to deal damage are separate things in D&D 5e. One takes a strength check to force it open / snap it in two / cave it in / whatever and succeeds or fails in one roll. The other takes normal hitting with a weapon and dealing HP damage until it runs out of HP.

It still contains things that aren't related.

comment Can the melee attack of Skald's Armour be further than the actual melee range?
Objections to this answer's reasoning would be more profitably registered by simply providing a competing answer.

comment Is there a playtested house rule for prone that makes its usefulness less dependent on initiative order?
Could you revise the update so it is integrated instead of taped onto the end? Since we have an edit history feature, there is no reason to signal edits, and reasons to avoid doing so.

comment Can a power be used to make a creature attack itself?
This may depend on the exact wording of a power, and be different for different powers. Which power or powers are you asking about?
