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 Customizing D&D 5e to simulate Dark Souls universe
Note after the edit: there's no such thing as "BAB" in D&D 5e, so suddenly switching the question from Pathfinder to 5e may not be as simple as you suspect. You might want to adjust the rest of the question to fit with how 5e works. The tags also don't fit anymore (and it's unclear what [game-recommendation] is doing there in the first place).

The answer of mine you linked to there doesn't mention preparing spells from foreign books at all?

comment Is this a good way to represent the inability to capitalize on attacks in Fate Core?
Have you considered treating these protective maneuvers as just Blocking the creature's own Create an Advantage actions? If so, you should mention how that's unsatisfactory in the question.

comment Can I exclude characters from understanding my magically understandable speech?
@Sandwich Not "must"—the tag has no special rules—but it's advisable because voters expect a solidly-backed answer.

comment How much of an issue is “Linear Fighters, Quadratic Wizards” in 2nd edition AD&D?
I gave this an edit so you can see how your point can still be made usefully without engaging in unwelcome edition warring about it.
