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 Are stats from D&D Miniatures compatible with D&D 4e?
What are you trying to do? Are you looking to play D&D 4th edition with these minis? Or is this just a matter of curiosity? What would resolving this confusion let you do that you can't now and would like to?

comment Is Flurry of Blows limited to one target?
Note that the College of Valor does not give the Bard two Attack Actions per turn, it gives them two attacks per Attack Action.

comment In Basic Fantasy RPG 3e, how do reverse spells work?
The question requests that answers be backed up with a citation if possible. Could you do that? If not, explaining why the answer can't be cited and why that's OK would improve the answer a lot.

revised With the lifespan of elves, would you ever encounter a low-level elf?
use one kind of paragraph break instead of two; flag "spoilers" more clearly; replace word considered a slur in 2015 with one no longer considered a slur in 2015
