Light editing to make executive summary less personal

Clarify that “you can act later in the round” sounds descriptive, not prescriptive.

comment Can you use a readied action to act on a different round?
While I agree with this answer in spirit, it took some digging to verify that it actually has support in rules-as-written. +1, but you might want to edit to show your work.

comment Can an Unseen Servant be used as a scout?
We don’t have rules for objects yet, but Armor Class and hit points are traditionally stats that objects have, not just creatures.

comment Can PCs learn skill, proficiencies, or spells from other PCs?
Requiring equal downtime from the trainer seems excessive. Even in a one-on-one master & apprentice relationship, the apprentice spends a lot more time training than the master does (or the master wouldn’t be able to run a business).

comment Puzzled about buff durations
@thedarkwanderer The exact time does matter because the spell duration is in minutes. And in AD&D, a turn is not once per round, which affects answers written for othe editions.

@thedarkwanderer Before D&D3, a round was a minute and a turn was 10 minutes, so the question and answer wouldn’t work well for AD&D, but it makes sense for all later versions.

Correct. I can edit the answer if you think it’s not clear enough.

The latter. A minute long spell lasts ten rounds, not ten turns.

Good explanation, although I think the key point that the OP might be missing is that everyone's actions/turns occur during the same 6-second round, rather than being 6-second turns laid end to end. +1

Added a Pathfinder tag, athough something a little more general might be appropriate, as lots of RPGs use the same terminology.

comment Could a lvl 1 drow disguise their race from party for lengthy period of time?
@Tritium21 Half of the close votes came in before the question was clarified. The other half, I'm not sure. I have voted to reopen. (Although I am still curious why this was a question for SE and not a question for the players and DM at the table.)
