comment How to handle a charismatic player who feels unuseful?
If you can, could you estimate what proportion of game time is spent in starship sequences, and more generally, in non-social situations? Are all non-social situations equally disappointing for this player, or is there something special about starship sequences?

comment When rolling with advantage do halflings get to apply their Luck trait and reroll a 1?
Your comment suggested you were concerned about the fake internet points, but if you're not, it's all good, no worries. So if points and copying aren't issues, you have the option of updating the post; you also have the option to flag it for mod help, or just leave it as-is—whatever your preference is!

Written in one's own words based on the game's text is fine; there's no copyright on ideas. Even if someone wanted to outright copy another answer word-for-word that's also fine, since everything here is licensed to allow that (given attribution). And the intent is noble, but I'm more concerned for your rep total than mine; I have more than I need.

comment Can a Precision Attack be added to an attack roll after an enemy uses Shield as a reaction to that attack roll?
@user28536 Playing with dice rolled in the open doesn't change the answer, or the advice about how to handle it if someone “jumps the gun” and starts declaring responses before the attack roll's final number and results are declared. If you think it does, then perhaps there is something more about the situation that is unclear that could be detailed in the question.

Alternatively you could update it! I was hoping that's what would happen when I first commented. If you don't want to update it now and want to delete it (permanently, or temporarily until it can be updated later), you can use a flag to ask a mod to do so. (I would let another mod handle it if it were flagged.)

Since it sounds like you might be away from your books and unable to consult them, I've gone ahead and just written that all as a separate answer.

comment Can others refluff their weapons in AL, or are “Unique Weapons” exclusive to Monks?
Cool. The AL angle makes this a more specific and slightly different problem, and perhaps get different answers than it otherwise would, so I've put those bits directly into the question. It makes it clear that it's not just asking for the internet's permission to call a bit of gear a different name in a home game (which are the default question context).

edited tags; work AL into the title and avoid a title/body parity mismatch (where a ‘yes’ to the title would be a ‘no’ to the body and vice versa) that can result in ambiguous answers; incorporate comments

Re edit: the PHB's answer is “yes” to the question, but “no” to both dice. The explanation on p. 173 is worth reviewing directly. (Also, we don't need to mark edits in text.)

comment When rolling with advantage do halflings get to apply their Luck trait and reroll a 1?
Not necessarily: to be counter to how it's written, first you'd have to have a debate about whether the end result is an “attack roll” that the trait applies to, or whether the individual dice are “attack rolls” that the trait applies to—and each table will end up with its own answer incompatible with other tables. The explicit rules for how to apply abilities that allow rerolls to Advantage/Disadvantage dice obviate that argument neatly and give a canonical answer, so it's very useful.

Your comment makes me wonder: is your question specifically about what's legal in Adventurers League play? Does an answer have to be usable in AL?

formatting; question doesn't match the usage notes for [roleplaying], so removing that tag

See PHB page 173: it actually answers the example in the question explicitly and would be worth quoting here. It also contradicts your second paragraph: you are only allowed to reroll one die, not both, if they both came up 1.
