comment What do you roll Insight against when the other person is telling the truth?
Deception is about making somebody believe what you say. It doesn't really matter if the thing you say is true of false, though that may modify the roll, it only matters that they believe the thing you told them. Persuasion is about convincing people that you're a great person, that you're their friend. You can do this without trying to convince anyone that something is "true or false". Now, the two can sometimes inform each other. Like my friend might go along with someone I say even though they know I'm lying. But people will react differently in both circumstances.

comment Is the flight that a variant Tiefling (SCAG) has game breaking?
Honestly, I don't think ranged combat is really the most difficult part of dealing with early level flight. There are lots of easy way to close combat as long as you pay attention. To me, the biggest challenge with early level flight is really the exploration component. Some things just become too easy when some portion of the group can scout ahead or fly over obstacles.

comment Are there issues to using passive Perception?
In the case of knowledge and spellcraft there is a difference between failing to know something you should know and failing to know something you cannot possibly know. Likewise, many advanced traps are not simply pass or fail. A good trap may have multiple layers, or may give the illusion of being disarmed.

comment What is the reasoning behind having sorcerers' and warlocks' spells rely on charisma?
In 2nd edition Charisma was one of three or four important stats for the Paladin. Paladins were very rare because they had intense ability score requirements. Druids were Wisdom casters, I don't recall any special ability that required them to have Charisma.
