I think we should leave it as a [house-rules] question That might be surprising, because the ruling they made was also definitely an available official optional rule. But here's the thing: they didn't know that when coming up with their rule. In their universe, not apparently having read Tasha's yet (or at least that section of it), what they created was ...

Tags change based on information. A tag is a word or phrase that describes the topic of the question. Tags are a means of connecting experts with questions they will be able to answer by sorting questions into specific, well-defined categories. The person who asks the question thinks that they are implementing a house rule, so they should use the house-...

The dupe target does care about items. The dupe target asks, without restricting the scope to any one category of features: Are there any ways you have used to mitigate this flaw? This means the question is properly concerned with any game feature that solves the problem of Sunlight Sensitivity, and to quote the Dungeon Master's Guide: Game features ...

It's a dupe, you want to Bounty Both questions are asking how to mitigate sunlight sensitivity: that makes your question a duplicate. The answers to the older one do fully include an aspect you are interested in. You'd like to see more than just that, so in these situations where you are asking the same thing but not getting the type or quality of answer you ...

The questions are old enough at this point that changing them invalidates their answers These questions are from May 5th, 10th, and 11th. It is now an entire month later and these questions have meaningful answers that work under the assumption that these questions are actually about the fifth edition of Dungeons & Dragons. Thus these questions are ...

It should be closed with further details needed, because it's not a system-agnostic question. System matters for understanding the problem and understanding what solution to apply. Factors that the system influences include but are not limited to: What actual qualities do the “exotic” or “normal” races have that would have a player gravitate toward or away ...

It could be reopened as soon as the system-agnostic tag is replaced "System-agnostic" could be a relevant tag if the OP was not already set on a specific system to play in a fantasy setting with limited access to exotic races, but it looks like this is not the case here: we need to know what the OP is playing to provide more specific advice.

Leave it closed until the querent's goals are clearer. The question has been closed at least twice for being unclear. The question has undergone some minor edits but the fundamental confusion is still there. There are currently 11 answers (and several now-deleted answers) that cover a variety of possible solutions. It is unclear why none of them suffice for ...

system-agnostic is an appropriate tag here. We do not need to know the system. That certain systems have mechanics baked in for handling OP's problem is entirely irrelevant. If OP was playing one of those, they likely wouldn't be having this problem. And even if they are, the problem is still widely applicable to systems that don't have such mechanics, and ...

it's tricky... As elaborated in some highly rated comments and my answer, a system would highly help to make better answers. But it technically could be answered, however only few answers actually follow the back it up principle...

On further thought, your question is not a duplicate You ask: Let's say I craft a Page of Limited Wish [...] Would this allow me to cast Limited Wish? I have a spell slot of the appropriate level (higher, even), and I have the page to make the spell "known" to me. And the supposed dupe asks: Can Xylitol cast 1st level spells using the bonus ...

None of these. “Does a Water Elemental freeze when kept below 0°C?” is super inadvisable: Dungeons & Dragons is not a physics or chemistry simulator, and you're almost always going to run into trouble when trying to treat it like one. Also, #2 would definitely not be okay—see When a Question Changes Completely, Should it be a New Question? which suggests ...

No, we shouldn't. Our "never guess the system" policy is clear. We never guess the system even when we are confident that we could do so. If you want to change that, then a specific meta question is not the right place. We have numerous discussion to which you can add. The querent came back to edit the information, and that is our current approach ...

The system is utterly clear and we should add it András has been asking PF2e questions lately, and this question even links to material from that system. This is extremely similar to questions linking to D&D Beyond. The system is undeniably clear and András clearly knows how the site works and just forgot to add the tag (I have done this myself as well ...

The system is clear and we should add it I recently got the Eldritch Maul tattoo from Tasha's Cauldron of Everything and I also have the Insignia of Claws. These both add a +1 modifier to my unarmed attack would these stack? Is there any system with something that could called an "Eldritch Maul tattoo" that comes from something called "Tasha'...

There are two sides to it. System is indirectly indicated and we pretty much know, so there's no harm in adding the tag and reopening in regard to getting answers that fit. It will show the OP that they can be sloppy, ignore the messages that are shown to new users (that says to stay a bit, read the comments and edit accordingly), and someone will tidy ...

Including more info is (generally) better than less I don't think there's really any benefit to omitting that information, since it is what prompted your question. If you are specifically looking for deities like the ones in that podcast that inspired your campaign, then it helps to at least mention that. If it ends up being entirely irrelevant, it can ...

With this specific example, referencing the podcast probably isn't necessary or helpful From the description (I'm not a listener to that podcast), it sounds like what is being described is a worldbuilding element-- a description of the cosmology and inherent operation of the in-game universe. And that description doesn't sound, to me, like it would mesh very ...

This type of theorycrafting often gets an uneven reception here My best advice is to not ask about multiclassing from all possible options, but that's not a guarantee that the question won't still be closed. My impression based on experience (read: I don't have hard evidence) is that there are relatively few users here who like to answer optimization ...

For me, it needs more focus and more details. We do handle optimization questions. See optimization. When you look at the optimization questions dealing with optimizing character performance that have scored well, you will observe two formulae that work well for the stack: A mostly complete character build, where the stack is asked to optimize a few ...

At the time I write this answer, the question was closed eight hours ago, and your edit was less than half an hour ago. Edited questions don't automatically re-open, they are automatically made eligible to be re-opened after a certain number of votes, as this one now is. (If the edit was made within a certain window of time, as this one was.) Note that there'...

A question generally is opinion based, if there could be at least 2 answers that are vastly different in their results and neither is, objectively speaking, better. For example the question "What's the best color for a wizard's robe" allows the whole spectrum for answers, none is objectively the best. But "What is the color of wizard robes in ...
