I have multiple questions for a spell. The questions cover:

  • Duration of the spell
  • Targets of the spell
  • Effects of the spell
  • After-effects of the spell once it has worn off

Would it make more sense to ask a separate question for each, or to ask one question that touches on all 4 topics? The answer would apply to multiple spells.

  • \$\begingroup\$ which game? What's your specific problem that you're trying to solve? \$\endgroup\$ Sep 3, 2014 at 7:11
  • \$\begingroup\$ D&D 5th edition. I find parts of the spell ambiguous and I'm wondering if there's any rules that I missed that cover the ambiguity. The PHB doesn't always group all relevant rules together. \$\endgroup\$

There isn't a right answer to this question.

If all of the details of the question are interrelated, then you're in good shape to ask it as one question.

However, if this is 4 general questions with one spell as the impetus, it should be four.

As Brian says, if you've got something you're having this much trouble with, there's a really good chance that a quick session in chat can either get you the answers you need, or at least get you to a focused question.
