# How to ask a question when you don't know the english name and references of a spell?

I have a question about a spell in Deadland Reloaded. But I'm french and every book I have about it are in french. I have hard time find the english translation of many point. Making it hard to ask about.

I actually have a question about a skill that allow a mad scientist to craft one object once per day. It has any spell in it and half of his mana point.

This is an exemple for a more genereral issue.

How to ask about a skill/spell you do not know the name?

For me the choice are:

• Making global description of the thing I can't name.
• Let some blank or [X] in the question.
• Making a poor* question about "what is the name of the spell that"
• Directly asking for help in comment, in question.

*, By my standart

• The Edge you're talking about in Deadlands is Gadgeteer - that should help with your specific question, but I don't know about the more general issue you're talking about Jun 27 '17 at 9:17
• I think this is a pretty helpful thing for us to cover for the general case. :) Thanks for asking this. Jun 27 '17 at 9:17
• I had an edit to make it less specific. Showing the choice I came up with trying to post question. Jun 27 '17 at 9:18
• Keep it specific, that's a fine & helpful way to handle it. The stack works best when people are specific about their issue. Jun 27 '17 at 9:23
• I am not on RPG.SE often, but maybe a Sandbox-Post would help. Here is an example of a user asking for help with his specific question. If you always post on Meta first people can help you with such things. Jun 27 '17 at 11:10
