comment Does Magic Missile really always hit a creature of choice?
Our 4E group calls it the Minion Missile. Guaranteed to thin the crowd, turn by turn.

comment How can I use improvised consequences to make combat more interesting?
One way I avoid spamming improv attacks is to always make it a check (eg. DEX vs REF), and give a penalty after the first one (because, hey, they'll see it coming). Also make it count for an action - even a minor action means a player might have to choose between that and eg. switching weapons or sustaining an effect.

comment How do I read the Attack line on power cards in D&D 4e?
Might be good to comment on the "half your level", "proficiency" terms too (and so on).

So while it's not technically an error, it is still useless to take it (although I think it would make sense to have Elven Accuracy be an explicit prerequisite for Elven Arcane Precision). I presume there's no other way for a half-elf character to otherwise obtain Elven Accuracy?

comment Blacksmithing and repair in D&D 4e?
But I agree, your point is the same either way :P

comment Blacksmithing and repair in D&D 4e?
@BrianS - I see what you're saying, but I'm not so sure it really counts as a house rule so much as a G/N/S playing style difference. For example, a healing potion costs 50gp, but you can't just buy one at the bottom of a dungeon. But then a G-type group might just say "well, let's pretend you went back to the town, got the potion, had a sandwich, and came back to meet your pals...".

when you could use Enchant Magic Item before entering the lair to make a Frost Crossbow +2, pay the same gold — this depends on how your group interprets "component cost." Our group, for example, do not interpret it literally as turning X GP into a magical item on the spot; the component cost actually has to be spent, ahead of time, on the components required for the ritual. These components are determined by adventure flavour, and may lead to interesting diversions. Not every group does this though.

Nicely put :) I had indeed forgotten about the disparity between skill and trained abilities. When you say you no longer regularly add 5 - you mean to the DCs, right? Not the check results?

comment Should I show the health of enemies?
@amp108 - although there could be buffs or penalties that the players are unaware of that throw this off (eg. proximity to something, a timed effect, etc).
