As I don't have enough rep to create tags yet, I'd like to request that 'creature-size' be added as a new tag. A question that would have used it: What are the advantages and disadvantages of allowing a player to play a large creature?

    \$\begingroup\$ Can you find more than one example that would have used it? What benefit would it provide (ie: when would someone search on filter on creature-size)? \$\endgroup\$ – C. Ross Jul 26 '11 at 16:21

I think this is a pretty weak tag that won't get used much at all - I'd stick to more general tags in this case.

Disagree with @mxyzplk. Size is a technical term in D&D which has specific rules associated with it. It could be helpful to look up size-related rules. Here are a couple of questions for which the size tag could be appropriate:

Why did D&D 4th Edition Remove the Size To-Hit Modifiers?

How much vertical space do a rider and mount occupy together?

Do creatures occupy cubic space, or are larger creatures still one square tall?

Close burst from a large creature -- one square origin or all of them

How do you rule halfling tossing as a combat action?

Size is related, but not identical, to the 3d-space tag.

  • \$\begingroup\$ If it's very D&D specific then go with a D&D tag. Or more specifically which version of D&D since the affects of creature size varies from edition to edition. If this had a cross use between many systems it might possibly be useful but since each system will handle it different better to just tag it with the system. \$\endgroup\$ – mirv120 Aug 15 '11 at 16:33
