comment Help with Seven Samurai-style 1st level adventure
Some of this material might be helpful, but an important aspect of Seven Samurai is the fact that the bandits do not occupy the village. They have subdued several villages and come down into them to collect their tribute, but otherwise leave the farmers alone, giving the Samurai the chance to fortify the town.

comment Why does the Folk Hero get a shovel?
@lisardggY I am not disparaging the shovel, it is a wonderful tool, I'm curious why a Folk Hero gets one as part of their standard gear.

"...indicate that he may have expertise with said shovel as a weapon..." I wonder if I can convince my DM to let me be able to apply my Proficiency Bonus to attacks using the shovel.

comment Does Mage Armor stack with Shield?
My hope is that 5E does not introduce named bonuses and does not introduce rules that prevent bonus stacking but instead keeps bonuses very rare. Being able to creatively stack synergistic spells has lots of fun potential, provided they aren't so common that it is easy to do it all the time rather than having to be conservative with it.

comment Do you have to cast Shield prior to your opponent's attack roll?
It is grammatical, but it still feels like there is a missing second 'are'.

"or targeted by the magic missile spell" What strange grammar.

comment Does being in the same space as an ogre allow a halfling to hide between its legs?
@Lohoris Because it is awesome sounding and I personally don't care about the rules as written. I'll house-rule the hell out of my own game.

comment Does a GM ever want to kill the player characters?
@thanby many games do have resurrection. But the underlying issue of PC death still needs to be addressed before a game is started.
