comment How do you identify what spell is on a spell scroll?
@nitsua60 D&D doesn't have the Call of Cthulhu or Evil Dead trope of “what does this incantation do? let's find out…”, at least not for normal spells. (I could see a unique Plot Item having that property.) You can only cast spells you grasp and understand, and it doesn't seem any different for scrolls. (Now, activated items like wands on the other hand…)

comment How do you identify what spell is on a spell scroll?
@nitsua60 I dunno, reading the whole section on page 200, it does seem that being able to read it = being able to (potentially) cast it, as far as the designers are concerned.

comment When to roll during spellcasting?
@nitsua60 Yes, that's possibly what they mean. I assumed they weren't being hit enough for that to be relevant, but that would be assuming the D&D tactics of a veteran!

comment How is childbirth handled?
@NateKerkhofs I dunno, the passive-aggressive tone it has now isn't really doing it for me, somehow. We're also not the place to simply catalogue "the horrors of childbirth" (especially under that name), so it's of questionable RPG relevance now.

@TheStumps The non-Q&A features of the site are gated by first submitting answers or questions that are well-received by the community; that's by design, in order to enforce with new users the site's laser-focus on productive Q&A. If you'd like to use chat, first you'll have to go beyond this single-issue interest, and contribute elsewhere on the site. All you need is an answer with two upvotes, or a question with four, to get the requisite 20 reputation.
