@MontyHarder This is simply the idiom in common use. File it in with danishes and guinea pigs.

comment Why does a d10 count from 0 to 9?
@MontyHarder You're thinking of the technical term percentile, used for grouping demographic data (e.g. I am in the first percentile of users on this site! Woo!). The definition here is looser, it basically means "thing you roll to get a percentage." Charts are often arranged from 01 - 00 (at least in D&D). This has the advantage of being able to say "I have a 1% chance of rolling 1 or less; a 10% chance of rolling a 10 or less; a 100% chance of rolling a 00 or less; etc."

comment How do you transition from 1-page dungeon map to battle mat?
@Yotus I've generally not found this to be a problem (my group is fairly reasonable about metagaming, and the "check out the big room" strategy is often not a good one anyway). For cases where it is an issue, refer to the rest of this answer; i.e. draw the map chunks yourself, and cover them up with paper.

comment Am I designing my campaign setting to be too specific?
@Nitsua60 I guess I muddled the topology a bit. I was thinking of an area with the player at the center, and the "top-level" stuff at the edges. That gives you a reverse donut: filled in at the center, then an empty ring, then filled in at the edges. If you picture the players at the bottom of an area, top-level stuff at the top, and detail visualized as horizontal growth, you do indeed get an hourglass shape.

@KRyan Could you point to an example you feel is inconsistent?

comment Threatend fields for a large person with a long spear
@KRyan I saw a fair bit of forum chatter suggesting three, and it fits better with the way I'd use the terms. But of course that's all just hearsay. If you have a citation for the other way around, I'd love to hear it!

comment Threatend fields for a large person with a long spear
@KRyan Reach weapons double a creature's "Natural Reach," and Lunge increases "Reach." There are three interpreations: 1. Natural Reach and Reach are the same (but then why do they go to the trouble of specifying the phrase "Natural" in the rules?). 2. Reach is a subset of Natural Reach (this is the interpretation you appear to be using); meaning that effects that increase Reach increase Natural Reach, but not vice versa. 3. Natural Reach is a subset of Reach (my interpretation); meaning that effects that increase Natural Reach increase Reach, but not vice versa.

comment How many attacks does a character with “Extra Attack” and the “Polearm Master” get at level 5?
To expand on this... There is a difference between "making an attack" and "taking the attack action." Polearm Mastery grants the former, while the Extra Attack class feature improves the latter.
