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 and expanded my horizons from there. Fond of GMless and short-form games that suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment Polyhedral dice statistics program, spreadsheet, or document
Considering how many dice statistics questions we accept, I don't see any reason a dice statistic tool question should be closed.

comment How to Build an Optimized Battle Cleric?
Those are both 3.x archetypes for clerics. On what are you basing the idea that they work for 5e clerics? (They might, but might not.) Giving us some idea of why you're asking for what you're asking for would help a lot. "I'm just assuming this is a good idea" isn't a great way to try to get an optimised character, after all. What are you basing your character direction on?

You may run into trouble using your 3.5/PF knowledge in 5e. It is only superficially similar in places, and proceeding as if those superficialities are more than skin-deep will probably make you hate 5e. For one example: you're already assuming that clerics are best played as buffers.
