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.

revised Differences between 5th Edition D&D and Pathfinder?
+/-5 is the *max*, not total or typical (but granted, max is most relevant to that passage); fix missing link; next to no-one calls editions "X.Y" except 3.5, and inconsistenly switching number schemes should be avoided anyway; misc fixes

comment How can I make a better ruined culture?
@BrianBallsun-Stanton That's only true of some playstyles; i.e., "rules as physics" playstyles. It doesn't apply universally to all playstyles, so neither to all world-building questions.

@JoshuaAslanSmith Only if it's off-topic here. People can ask here or there, per the expertise they're looking for. If they put it in the wrong place (because they're looking for expertise that's off topic on that site), then they get closed and we suggest they ask elsewhere.

comment How long does damage resistance granted by Wish last?
+1. And maybe add something to the end like "And this makes sense, because full immunity to a spell of your choice is more valuable, powerful, and rare than damage resistance."
