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 Can an Elven Wizard use a bow for an arcane focus?
-1 for logic flaw. While an arcane focus staff is already a staff, and hence qualifies as a staff for hitting-people purposes, as confirmed by Mearls, it does not follow that an arcane focus is already a bow and qualifies for shooting-arrows purposes. Thus the precedent is inapplicable and the conclusion is not supported by the line of reasoning. (Outside of perfectly-OK house rules, of course.)

comment Would the alignment of a character with multiple personality disorder change?
@wraith808 The majority of answers seem to me to address both parts; a few don't even address the first. Quite a few of them wouldn't make sense with the "how should I roleplay" part removed.

comment What monsters and races are from the Shadowfell?
Since the question isn't actually about 5e, rather the setting of the Shadowfell itself, I've pulled the 5e tag and put that as background in the question.

This is two questions in one. The second might be too broad by itself, but in combination they make the post definitely too broad.

comment Short One-Session Adventures for AD&D 1e?
These requirements capture almost all AD&D adventures for low-level characters, which is not a small number.

comment Does D&D 5e lack a general disarm rule?
-1. General rules for maneuvers are actually present. They're just not in the players' jurisdiction.
