comment What Is The Role-Play Justification for Named Wizard Spells?
Nice site, Korvin, I hadn't found that in my searching. I plan to add some examples once I got home and got the books out of my bookshelf.

comment How can I have a campaign where not everyone shows up to each session?
I am GMing a campaign with exactly this problem. The biggest issue I have is when we end a session at the end of combat, with the characters wounded and low on resources. Next session, when half of last-weeks players don't turn up and we have new players, should the new characters also be wounded and low on resources?

comment Extra Attack, Crossbow Expert, and hand crossbow: 4 shots per turn?
The 3 attacks per round is not just for crossbow users, either. A 5th level fighter with two weapons can attack 3 times. That fighter with the polearm mastery feat can attack 3 times.

comment How can I invoke actual fear in my players?
It is a piece of advice from the Cyberpunk roleplaying game rulebook. I used it when GMing that game many years ago. I'm not sure how effective, or not, it was.

comment What are the objective benefits of using an official character sheet vs writing things down yourself on a piece of paper if you are a new DnD player?
Before I owned computers and a printer, I found an A5 hardcover schoolbook an excellent character sheet. It was robust enough to be able to handle knocking around in the bottom of a schoolbag. Lots of pages for notes.

comment Does knowing Primordial mean you understand all the different languages of elementals?
I think of it like French. There is French French, Canadian French, Swiss French, and so on. There are sometimes major differences between the dialects. There might be snobbery between them. But someone who speaks "French" is still going to be able to communicate with speakers of the dialects.
