Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Started playing with AD&D 1e and GMing with AD&D 2e. Ran D&D 3.x, 4e briefly, then became a fan of indie games and the OSR. Particularly fond of GMless and short-form games because they suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment What does 1-1/2 mean?
To be precise, it's a holdover from the d20 SRD which doesn't use typographical fractions (to maintain a lowest-common-denominator of text formatting) and favours numbers over words (for brevity/clarity); in D&D 3.5 they do use "one and a half times". Partly this is because an SRD isn't a teaching document, but rather a reference for those who have already learned the game, so it's written assuming the reader already knows this rule.

comment Can a thrown dagger do slashing damage?
@JeffFry I modified the first sentence to pretty much say that, so that it starts from a very brief grounding in the rules before delving into the "why" with physics.

comment How many spells can a level 1 human Wizard have in 4e?
@DraconeKing The Player's Handbook 2 and Players Handbook 3 are confusingly named if you're unfamiliar with the game. They're not new versions of the same book, as the numbering would suggest, just expansions.

comment Spending Hold whilst shapeshifting as a Druid
"The druid could also make a Hack & Slash roll without spending 1 Hold, though." Not by choice, though. Moves always trigger by the fiction, or not at all. If they crunch on stuff, they spend the hold, done. Only if they "attack in melee" without triggering "crunch on stuff" or some other move, would Hack & Slash trigger.
