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 an attack a check, or only similar to a check?
I'd like to see this question updated to be phrased relevant for D&D 5e rather than just a playtest packet, but Berserkers don't have that ability anymore; all creatures seem to get some kind of advantage instead of +X to ability checks. I'm not sure what to replace the example with to keep it meaningful, or whether it should be updated at all.

@Dungarth That's actually a point of considerable contention since some of the devs have said the opposite of what the book has been interpreted to say, while others have confirmed the book.

comment Can a Monk utilize touch based cantrips with their Unarmed Attacks?
@KRyan 5e doesn't have touch attacks, and the rules are careful to link what I gloss as "attack options" directly to being activated by the use of your (sole) action, rather than being effects that happen when you attack. So instead of the flow being from "I make an attack" -> "what are the effects?", the flow is "what attack do you choose to use" -> "spend your Action to attack that way".
