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 Countermeasures against a Diplomancer
@annoyingimp It's clarified enough, yeah. But it had also been flagged as possibly "too broad", so I'm letting the community voting determine its fate instead of super-voting on it.

comment Alternating GM/Campaigns within the same group?
Are you asking about swapping GMs while people keep the same characters and the same world continuity (sometimes called "round-robin GMing"), or are you asking about completely separate campaigns with entirely different character rosters? That seems to be a point of confusion in the answers.

comment Alternating GM/Campaigns within the same group?
I don't believe the question is about round-robin GMing, but about switching campaigns on a regular schedule: "each GM overseeing their campaign exclusively."

comment Is there some reason Wild Sorcerers don't have Nahal's Reckless Dweomer in 5E?
@Miniman It does answer the question, but it takes a while to get to the point. mneme, you might want to state up-front where you're planning on taking the answer before the first paragraph, maybe with a title or thesis statement. Right now this answer buries the lede, which is a good way to lose the readers who will be voting on it.

comment Improved grab and moving a creature without grapple check
The question already mentions this text, so this answer isn't providing anything that isn't already known to the question-asker. This could be improved by including more editorial discussion and reasoning outside the quote, instead of just repeating what it says.
