I'm a semi-retired GM who can't stay away from World Creation or adventure design. I have experience running or playing:

  • AD&D 2E
  • D&D 3/3.5
  • Savage Worlds (including Necessary Evil)
  • Paranoia

comment Is this the way that “Control Weather” is supposed to function?
"Other Things..." Additionally, this sounds like an exciting adventure! (Not that being exciting is a good enough reason to change up expectations or say, "This is RAW" when it's not.)

comment Passive checks or active checks when looking for monsters or hidden objects?
So, in essence, you never do worse than your passive perception, and sometimes do better, with regards to noticing hidden "things"?

comment Can an Elven Wizard use a bow for an arcane focus?
@RSConley Yes, there are improvised weapon rules. The point is not whether or not the items listed can be used, but whether or not that's their purpose. I spent time looking at the A.F. Staff, because it and the rod are the only ones that are not immediately clearly not a weapon ("I hit it with my Orb"?). The final takeaway, IMO, is really, "None of these [Arcane Foci] are bows. None of these are even weapons." Can you work around that? Sure. But now we've left RAW.
