comment Is your character's ability to avoid attacks based solely on AC?
@Airk I'd have to agree, but I think the onus is on the question to be clearer.

comment Can Detect Magic detect prepared spells?
I don't think the question is asking whether Detect Magic can detect any and all casters, but only casters who have spells prepared at that particular moment.

comment Can Detect Magic detect prepared spells?
I'm not downvoting, but for an upvote I'd delve a little more into why one shouldn't play as suggested by the OP (I gather that's the way in which you lean?). Since the rules seem to neither support nor deny the ruling, I'd ask an answer to sit a little farther from the fence (unless the pros/cons analysis was more in depth). Also, if you include Fluff as RaW (strict by the book) than I'd say the books support playing Detect Magic in this way, like @lowercasename aludes to.

comment Can Detect Magic detect prepared spells?
I can't make this an answer because of the RaW tag, but here's my two cents: It's commonly seen in fiction that wizards can detect the presence of other wizards, even going so far (sometimes) as to knowing specifically who it is if they've encountered them before. Also, as far as I understand it, in DnD preparing a spell is casting most of the spell in advance, leaving only a few components out so that, when used, the components complete the spell on-the-fly. It's hard to discern the far-reaching consequences in-game, sure, but it certainly fits the fluff to play it this way.

comment Can a 5e D&D character acquire multiple archetypes from the same class?
So in order to prevent this being a duplicate, answers must suggest methods other than multiclassing for acquiring features from other archtypes; Multiclassing and archtypes was covered in this question here.

comment Can Monks gain the benefit of the Dual Wielder Feat with their Unarmed Strikes?
@Tommy If they have to be different than you couldn't, say, dual-wield two longswords. That doesn't seem right to me.

comment What is the advantage of casting the cantrip “light” on an object an enemy is wearing or holding?
Also, light doesn't go invisible; only the source goes invisible. 'Tis a great way to keep track of an invisible foe!

comment Can high level Eldritch blast be used with War Caster?
Wouldn't it have been better, in that case, to resubmit a new answer and let the old one stand? Or simply delete it?

comment How can we fish an indestructible item out of lava?
Not to mention that if you really wanted to simulate lava, you couldn't stand very near to it at all without burning anyway, let alone taking the time to don your swimsuit.

comment Should I leave this group or recover it?
There are plenty of questions on here that link to the Same-Page tool, offer advice for conflict resolution, and advice related to GMs who abuse power... While these types of questions can never be exact duplicates, I suggest searching for those questions and reading their answers. I don't see much here to make this a truly unique question.

comment How can I create a world with realistic demographics that won't overwhelm my level 1 PCs?
@LieRyan Perhaps that enemy boss was sending his minion out against something a little beyond his current ability, to make him stronger?

comment Does a Warforged barbarian never get fatigued?
I don't have a book handy but are they immune to fatigue or do they just not require sleep? Fatigue doesn't necessarily mean tired, it could mean worn out or over-extended. A warforged's body could be fatigued after extended exertion, you just have to fluff it a little differently.
