# Tag Request: creature-size

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?

• 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)? Jul 26 '11 at 16:21
• No, Not really. Jul 26 '11 at 22:58

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.

• 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. Aug 15 '11 at 16:33
