comment How many editions of Dungeons & Dragons are there?
@KorvinStarmast Because there is a distinct difference between core book only OD&D and OD&D plus Greyhawk. Unlike Blackmoor and Eldritch Wizardry, Greyhawk not only expands the games but alters it into the form that most people recognize as classic D&D.

comment How to deal with anti-authoritarian player characters?
@Tritium21 It not as clear cut as that. It lies on a spectrum along with different social dynamics. What you do for a weekly gathering of friends is different from a 'anybody can sit at the table' game store event. Finally understand dealing with anything happening in-game out of game is meta gaming. At least among the gamers I know. While sometimes it is needed in general gamers are reluctant to meta-game.

comment How to deal with anti-authoritarian player characters?
@Superbest, in my experience trying to deal with it out of game is problematic for most. In short is nearly always messy as it obvious the bottom line is "If you don't change you can't come here and play." However unless other social activity the one are talking about revolves around playing a game. Because of this it can be manipulated by a skilled player to show why maddog behavior is self defeating. A lot of people talk about how player metagame the rules for bad reason but they forget they can be metagamed for good reasons.

comment Can you witch bolt the bad guy you're grappling?
@Killer_Kelly, the thing is the spell is only has a 30' range versus the typical movement rate so pinning down the target is useful. It may not be this method but you are on the right track.
