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 Is teleporting out of a grab considered escaping it?
@Kevin Has it been a long time since you played D&D 4e specifically? Or just D&D in general? (If the latter: 4e is way, way different than what you're used to and you should be cautious about answering rules questions about it, possibly avoiding doing so altogether.)

revised Do fey spirits in the form of creatures from the Conjure Animal Spell count towards creatures one has seen for Wild Shape?
add a caveat: not every creature you can think of is guaranteed to be in the DM's game

It's not bad and would be a good answer to a different question. It's just not a good answer to this one. It's just one vote though, and other voters may disagree. :)

remove the point based on a misreading of what "choose" covers in the spell description (kudos to limsup for the reality check); refactor the rest

Glenatron's comment is mistaken; there are actually many "self-GMing" aka GM-less RPGs — if it was ever a Holy Grail of RPGs, it's not anymore. Here's one list of GMless games. We even have a tag for them: [gm-less].
