comment Does Dimension Door trigger a surprise round?
Would it be possible/useful to ready an action "when there is a cultist in my range when we teleport in, I attack them immediately"?

comment What do I do about a power gamer?
I think you should re-ask this question stating the used rule system and a link to the exact character build. You could then ask how this character could be challenged or if there is any weakness the designer didn't think about or if there is any obvious rule-patch you could introduce to nerf the character to the same level as the others (most uber-builds depend on some loophole in the RAW). Another angle you could spin this question to make it a better fit would be to describe the problems which occur in your group because of the overpowered character and how to solve them.

comment Does a “Helm of Opposite Alignment” work on demons?
A demon which turned lawful good might actually be a very interesting character. Although I think that the conflict between its chaotic evil nature and its now lawful good psychology ("killing mortals is wrong... but their souls are so tasty!") might drive it insane (insaner?) sooner or later.

comment Is there a way to change a weapon's damage type on the fly?
any type with any weapon? How would one do slashing damage with a club?

comment What does a confused creature do when it has to “attack the nearest creature”?
@Zal when you don't feel confident that you can convince your players to role-play it properly, you should always try to avoid any situations where the player-characters minds are affected.

comment As DM, what should I do when players roll perception where there is nothing to be found?
When I would tell my group that they got a gut feeling about a room being important even though there is nothing interesting about it, the next hour of the session would be wasted on them dismantling the room.

comment Are PCs supposed to start a game knowing each other, and if not, how should they meet?
This behavior is often referred to as "my guy syndrome".

comment What can a wizard do without a spellbook?
In my opinion, permanently and irreversibly denying a character a class feature just because they didn't happen to have their spellbook on hand on levelup would be an unnecessarily harsh and unfair ruling.

comment Can a holy symbol take some artistic license?
Considering that the shape of the holy symbol doesn't have a mechanical effect on gameplay (as long as it doesn't resemble an item with another useful purpose), there is really no reason for the DM to not allow it. However, some followers of the same god with very conservative views might consider a character a heretic when their holy symbol is too different from the norm your symbol has five claws on each foot instead of four? This is not the true Bahamut! Die you infidel!.
