comment Is there any good reason not to kick people?
A boxer does not get his boxing technique bonus on kick attacks. I don't have the book here, but as far as I remember a boxer gets +2 damage on punches if skilled. That's better than +1 reach on kicks. Statistically, you'd need to get +6 to hit to make up for +2 damage.

@SevenSidedDie You always say "we" like it's a site policy. You can vote as you like, but can you point me to a meta saying there should be punitive voting for the answer when the question is unclear?

@SevenSidedDie can you point me to a meta saying so? More professional sites like SO itself have discussed that on meta and came to a different conclusion here and here.

@Phil: What information is lacking? My answer is valid for every single edition up to 5e.

comment What conditions prevent a caster from using Somatic spells?
You still need an action to cast a spell. Certain conditions disallow actions or restrict a character to specific actions. I don't have the rules at hand, but from memory I'd say that being grappled and held restricts you to actions that break the hold.

that are an awful lot of ifs. The question is asking for real-life experience, not on your opinion of a hypothetical scenario. If you actually have any hands-on experience, it may be useful to post it.

comment When and how many times can a cleric attempt to turn undead?
Posting as a comment because I don't have the book at hand and have to recite from memory of reading the section a day before: as far as I remember, you could do it as many times as you like, instead of a normal action in that round. Be advised that my memory is terrible, I will look it up tonight.

comment What race is most similar to a cat?
@MatthewNajmon Can you explain the potential problems more clearly? I have done this a few times and it was quite fun. It does require that anybody is fine with having rules made up on the fly, but that's up to the DM, not the player.

Checked it, the PHB 2e quote is correct.
