comment How would dispelling 390 spells on a single creature work?
Maybe I'm wrong but I think "every single spell" and "each spell" mean the same thing. I guess one should be "every spell" or "all spells".

comment Is it plausible that characters can invent devices in a medieval setting, and how should one balance it?
This is true, but I've seen it devolve into "rocket tag", where both the party and the enemies are full of deadly weapons.

comment Dislike how players accurately place fireball spell aoe. Is there an alternative?
There's no AC for grid squares in 5e. I'd go with 11 (starting from 3.5e: 5 from the rules for splash weapons, +2 for the base AC of people has been raised, +4 to account for the splash weapon nonproficiency)

comment How would conflict change if only d6s were used?
I don't think this answer is cosidering the way DitV is played. You roll all your dice, then you chose two and you advance them. The opponent does the same and whether he takes the hit, parries or retorts is based on how many dice he needs to tie your dice. So, rolling multiple dice instead of one die can only work if we still count that dice as a single entity. The question was not about rolling 2d6 instead of a d10 - it was about using a d6 instead of a d10 and what changes if you do.

comment Can a dhampir be chaotic good?
Unfortunately, alignment questions have proven to be very prone to be answered with opinions. The inherent vagueness of alignment is usually the culprit.

comment How can I raise my effective Caster Level to make dispelling my magic more difficult?
I've seen walls of dispel being used. When you party with folks several levels lower, debuffing the bigger threat (me) is an option and I don't want to need to pay for permanency over Tongues or Read Magic again.

I integrated the ring's name in the question, thanks. I mostly fear walls of dispels, chain dispels and the dreaded reaving dispel. My whole character is useless if dispelled and greatly handicapped if one of his key spells goes down. The ring of spell-battle (which is great against area dispels) only works if the caster is in range... and in case of walls of dispel magic, the caster might not even be alive anymore. Your answer made me think of the crown of sorcerous power (name?) that absorbs 10 levels of spells cast on you (which you then have to cast to free the slots).

Or 2 levels by taking one less cleric level.

@MatthieuM. Mentioning it won't hurt, though you're right. Unless the class really gives you way more than it loses to Fighter (which is hard) I will consider it. I left out alignment and deity on purpose to let people state theyr methods: even if I then don't want to use them, I will however upvote and accept based on what I asked, not on what I can or can not use on this specific character.

comment Can I reliably swap ability scores?
What is the reason you want to raise your wisdom all of a sudden, (I suspect multiclassing) and why isn't charisma relevant now, while it was before? Maybe we can find other ways around your problem - such as using a different stat for casting or for determining monk AC bonus - unless you want to roleplay a wiser character of course.

comment Which other feat might I use for double wielding reach?
@ObliviousSage We made the character by now. Anyway, he wants to attack with both weapons, I think. I never played the game and I don't remeber if Kratos actually uses both chains to attack.

The proficiency alone does not let you double-wield the weapon. You need the Spiked Chain Training feat, that I'm trying to replace.

Regarding size: what makes you think it doesn't?

comment How many powers do I get as a first level character in D&D 4E?
@Pat Ludwig - Healing word is Encounter but you can use it twice per encounter (and later thrice) but only once per round.

My fault. the * Power books are in. Editing my question.

comment Which other feat might I use for double wielding reach?
Nice and potentially useful for other people, but the whip is in none of the manuals I mentioned. I have no idea about manual primacy in D&D 4e but I guess later manuals errata out the earlier versions of the weapon.

comment Are upper-level combat encounters still as complicated and time-consuming?
Brutally short. Having been dealt 16 negative levels before my second round, then killed with a Save or Die, I completely second that.

@anaximander except in D&D, where resurrection is cheap.

comment Reincarnate and level adjustment in story based leveling
Exactly. They would gain a class level (while losing racial benefits worth 2 levels, and probably well worth it if the player chose them).

All right, except (IMHO) ECL not counting towards your level before death.
