comment Are the names of the more generic planes copyrighted under the OGL as Product Identity?
This seems mostly good, but there is a difference between a license and a contract. The GPL, for instance, is not a contract. I'm not sure about the OGL, though I suspect it is also a license. (What it's named isn't what matters.)

comment Can a Ranger learn spells outside the Ranger spell list?
@Aaron In AD&D edition they got both druid and wizard spells, so maybe it was a lingering memory of that. :)

comment Does the lack of automatic AC scaling mean you get easier to hit as you level up?
Ok, but then more than half your post is a distraction from that point. Just cut out the middle part and leave the (important) idea that your ability to remain in combat equals your Armor Class + Hit Points.

comment Can a 5e caster prepare extra cantrips?
I actually just noticed that 5e switched the generic terminology to "known in mind", to cover both prepared and spontaneous casters. At least, that's what they use in the chapter on magic.

comment How long does it take to equip a shield?
Sidenote: divine casters don't need a free hand to use their holy symbol as a focus: "To use the symbol in this way, the caster must hold it in hand, wear it visibly, or bear it on a shield." Somatic gestures are still an issue.

comment How do I quickly find the official errata for any book?
@NiteCyper A fair number of 3.5 materials got very limited or no errata. (They were weirdly reluctant to issue errata for that edition; lots of very obvious mistakes were never officially corrected in that way.)

comment Supporting degrees of success and failure when rolling
"Actually, there is support baked right into the 5e cake for part of what you're asking" -- well, not so much baked in as sprinkled on top. But hopefully the actual DMG will have more to say!

comment Attacking a grappled foe
@Tridus In PF, you don't even move into the square of the creature you're grappling; conceptually, it's not as up-close as it was in 3.5.

comment Can a Night Elf swim naked in a volcano?
Rather than "the RAW are stupid" I'd say "reading the rules as written is stupid." Sometimes editing mistakes creep in to a text, and this is most likely one of those times.
