I asked a question: A warlock has been reduced to strength 0 while underwater. Can he activate and use Fell Flight to move while underwater?
Here is a link to the thread: Warlock Flying Underwater while helpless
It has been marked as too broad by @SevenSidedDie.
I understand his point -- there are multiple questions that need answering in order to answer this question. I can think of three that seem like important factors to me, and there may be more that I haven't considered:
- Can fell flight be activated by a helpless creature;
- Does Fell Flight use mechanical wings to fly or magical means;
- Does fly provide any swim benefit, and if so, under what constraints?
He indicated I should split the thread into multiple questions. I think that is a bad mod ruling.
If I split it into individual questions, I could easily miss some important detail. For example, if I want to know whether my barbarian can toss a goat 100', under SevenSidedDie's reasoning, I might ask:
- How much does a goat weight?
- How much strength is needed to throw X lbs 100 feet?
And then draw my own conclusions. If I were to do that, it would preclude someone from helpfully pointing out that the goat might get an attack of opportunity, or opposed grapple check, or whatever else.
I have one question: can a warlock with strength 0 use fell flight to fly underwater. I think this single question should be in a single thread, so the responders can answer the question holistically.
