comment Can a dive attack be made when you would charge as part of an effect?
WotC has never been accused of always having the best wording in their books. This doesn't "work like" it "works EXACTLY like" a charge with the few noted exeptions. That slight difference in wording I think makes a huge difference In reading.

comment Can weapon special abilities that don't say they're passed on to ammunition be added to ranged weapons?
I think yall are missing my point of the tables. The tables are not what's restricting the creation, the tables are only listing items that are eligible to be applied to those types of weapons based on the text. So @thedarkwanderer, yes they could if it wasn't again the creation rules. Just like they can't create a "shirt of holding" they can't create magic weapons that the book doesn't allow.

@HeyICanChan, hence why I said I'd "rule 0" it. However, the OP asked & tagged ? as RAW, so I gave a RAW answer with my caveat at the bottom

Just got home going to check my MIC to see if it has a different answer

The rules explicitly states the DM, is able & ENCOURAGED to "Rule 0" anything that improves their game. So, I would do that; however, if the DM wanted to go explicitly RAW then unless your playing with additional material, sadly the core/SRD says those listed are the only ones available.

comment For seasoned 3.X players and DMs, what is the “what's new” summary for 5e?
Under "Critical Hits," you may want to add that they no longer need "confirmation" to crit. overall excellent answer, as you stated, it's a difficult balance to include the main aspects without just rewriting the Basic rules & here I think you did a pretty good job.

comment Are there any Handbooks for the “Expert” NPC Class?
Every paragraph, except for BAB, offered significant differences between the 2 classes. I see the focus was probably due to the skills (which are still significantly different but not as much as the other areas) but other than that every other section showed huge differences so not sure how useful it could be

comment Are there any Handbooks for the “Expert” NPC Class?
The 2 systems are very close, unfortunately in this instance they are too far off to be of any help. Skills in particular are a big difference but so to would any feats and magic items be.

comment How do sunder modifiers for size and weapon work?
@wyrmwood While it may seem weird for the larger creature to take a penalty for a light weapon since it would be the equivalent of a light weapons for the smaller creature that is accounted for separately, while ironically the hardness is the same regardless of the weapons size, it's HP is doubled for every size larger than medium! KRyan, great answer but could be improved by adding that tidbit, imho

comment Can a Paladin use Smite Evil on a touch attack to Lay on Hands on an undead creature?
@PurpleVermont personally I'd go with KRYAN's answer as the rules cited seem to support it, but more so due to the low tier/power level of this weak class. However, RAW wise, Jacks answer calls in explicit text ruling otherwise even if I'd encourage houseruling otherwise

comment Can a Paladin use Smite Evil on a touch attack to Lay on Hands on an undead creature?
Honestly, I'd go with @KRyan's answer above as it makes the most sense following the wording of the relevant rules. HOWEVER, here you have pointed out an explicit written rule contradicting those assumptions. So RAW you are correct & +1, but since as KRYAN mentioned Paladin is one of the weakest classes, wasting a valuable feat would only serve to weaken it further And personally I'd "Rule-0" this out.

comment If undead exist, why do cemeteries exist & cremation not a standard?
In hamlets & thors burning would probably be part of an outdoor ceremony where all can witness but in a city size community they would probably have a crematorium providing even easier access to necromances to pretend to burn bodies while stockpiling corpses!
