comment Can you mix 3e with 4e books?
Aside: Monsters from the d20 SRD are compatible with 3e.

comment It seems like every skill check should always be made with advantage due to the 'Working Together' rules. Is this accurate?
Worth noting that the alternative to assistance is usually everyone just making an attempt. Which is not quite advantage (they may have lower modifiers), but pretty close.

comment Why do Ability Score method names imply difficulty inversely?
@wyrmwood Could you clarify? Your question appeared to be asking about why the ability score generation methods were named the way they were. If you would like to know how to modulate difficulty in an Rpg, I'd recommend posting a new question outlining your goals.

comment At what point do I stop my charge while mounted and using a Lance?
@HeyICanChan That's possible, but then I would expect it to say "uses its movement," rather than "uses its action to move."

comment At what point do I stop my charge while mounted and using a Lance?
@HeyICanChan There are also some fiddly timing bits... I.e., after the rider has charged and attacked, the mount is too close to charge. So the mount and rider would have to be doing a lot of things simultaneously, or interrupting each others actions a lot. But the action economy thing is the big one.

comment At what point do I stop my charge while mounted and using a Lance?
@HeyICanChan Action economy, mostly. If the rider charges, the mount uses "its action" to support that (it's unclear if "its action" is a single move action, or the full-round action worth of movement required for charge). That doesn't leave the mount with enough actions to charge. And, because it used it's action rather than losing it, the mount can't partial charge.

comment What can someone do while forced to doff armor from the heat metal spell
@waxeagle This question asks if "doffing" is equivalent to "dropping" for purposes of Heat Metal. That question asks how long doffing takes (for purposes of Heat Metal). Different questions. Regardless, "same question asked in a different way" is encouraged per Dr. Strangedupe.

comment What can someone do while forced to doff armor from the heat metal spell
@waxeagle Duplication should be pretty strict. That question/answer deals with how long it takes to remove armor IF the creature chooses to do so, not whether or not a creature is forced to do so. The question and answers assume an answer to this one, but never actually state it.

comment In D&D can a cleric choose to 'partially use' turn undead for purposes of, say, torture
Note that the +2 circumstance bonus is the cleric "partially using turn undead" from a flavor point of view. It just happens to use different mechanics.
