I do occasionally DM games, but the "dm" in my username represents my middle and last initials.

comment Is it a bad idea to steal characters from other media?
"One of my concerns with doing this is that it can make it really hard for your players to separate their player knowledge from their character knowledge" Why is this bad, even when applied to more major NPCs?

But "doesn't make complete sense in the game world, and is more or less weird" would be completely at home at many game tables. I'm not sure your examples here really make a general point.

revised To what extent does the spell Consume Likeness duplicate equipment?
I know it's typical to indicate spells with italics rather than initial caps, the lack of that sort of formating in the title makes this puzzling to read

comment Foxes for druids and rangers
This doesn't apply to the question, since it seems unlikely for a companion or shapeshifting, but foxes are a major carrier of rabies in some parts of the world, and for a monster stat block, that makes for a seriously serious attack.

I know this is tongue in cheek, but answers really shouldn't assume or ask for votes
