I present exhibit A: Do Kaladesh Dwarves get +4 in Constitution? The most recent example of how we make this site a worse place by having this rule. This question was not unclear. It could be answered. And yet, we deleted the answer (don't know what actually happened, but our community acted in a way that in the end as a result we had a deleted answer). Why? ...

It should be reopened. As you say, one is a question about a feat, and the other is a question about a class feature. These are two clearly distinct rules items, even if the wording is similar (or even identical), and as such, the two questions are distinct rather than duplicates. As such, the question should be reopened, simply because of that difference ...

These questions ask the same thing about features with the same wording that do the same thing. One of these quotes is copied from Superior Technique, and one is copied from Martial Adept, can you discern which is which? You gain one superiority die, which is a d6 (this die is added to any superiority dice you have from another source). This die is used to ...

Give a man a fish, and feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and feed him for a lifetime. This is a question where someone is asking us how to fish—and comments demanding that they pick a specific example are, in effect, forcing them to pick a fish themselves without any information about the various fish or what may or may not be relevantly different ...

Ok, I under stand you need some examples of situations where I had trouble understanding where the "Advantage (roll two d20's and keep the better result") bonus applies. (Note: the following examples does not take to account the "Help/Aid" action nor used with spells like True Strike as that specifically says "next/first attack" ...

This category of question is on topic. Stack Exchange's Q&A doesn't just take the form of question and answer. It also takes the form of problem and solution. This principle is why our topicality help says “You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face.” It's also the principle that allows frame challenges to ...

Remember that the standard is backing it up Experience is a form of backing up answers—but not the only one. So is a book citation, but again not the only one. We don’t arbitrarily require that answers be backed up in some certain way—we require them to simply be backed up, one way or another. This is, necessarily, a personal, subjective judgment call on the ...

Of course it should be re-opened. “This question cannot be answered as expected” is a good answer. The particular rendition of that sort of answer here isn’t just a good answer, but a great one. And most crucially, the fact that “this question cannot be answered as expected” is the right answer to the question does not, and never has, and never should, mean ...

No, but a follow up question would need more details. I think the question is pretty clear. As I read it, the question is asking, how to determine for how many attack rolls on the attacker's turn does an advantage exist. And there is no clear statement in the rules telling this, so it seems quite fine question to me. – WakiNadiVellir 12 hours ago This ...

Yes, it needs more details And the kicker is that at any time a DM can rule that an attack or an ability check can have advantage, or disadvantage, regardless of what other mechanical bits are in play. This question style is quite common, and not just on this site: someone has a disagreement at the table, they want an answer that affirms their opinion, so ...

In a comment, I stated explicitly what I wanted to see for my reopen vote. I wrote a comment right after rolling back the edit: I've rolled back the edit for now, as iterations of homebrew reviews should be posted as new questions at least 72 hours after the first posting. The details I wanted to see for reopening were answers to NautArch's two comments ...

I’m gonna go ahead and just say “yes” Warhammer 40k is a campaign setting for an RPG. It’s also the setting for a bunch of other things, which means you could reasonably ask about it on SF&F or BCG or Arqade or probably a few other places within Stack Exchange. But the existence of other places where you could ask doesn’t mean you can’t ask here. And ...

As long as they are tied to the RPG The Warhammer (both Fantasy and 40k) lore is a mess. Many things are spread out among the board/card games, novels, PC games, tabletop army books, and the RPGs. As long as the question asks about the RPG aspect, it is on topic. This might or might not include bits from other than the RPG books as sources, but the question ...

As we pretty much agree there are various kinds of these questions. Let'S call them numerical: I don't understand Rule X on [Topic]. How does it work? I know there's a rule for [Topic] ([at Location]). What is it? I have no clue if there are rules on [Topic]. What are they? I can't find the rule for [Topic]. Where is it? Type 1 is pretty much the bread and ...
