    Well, that's a lot of work, and your English is fine. But I'm not sure exactly what your objective was. Was there a particular question that you are/were trying to answer?

    So, I decided to compare the prices of the paper/hard copy books (Amazon) vs. the digital books offered by D&D Beyond. I broke the costs down into 3 categories; Guides, Adventures, and Total Cost. I even supplied the subscription costs. I will admit that D&D Beyond is cheaper across the board for all 3 categories (they only work on D&D Beyond). But, we must realize that in order to utilize...

    Those are some good suggestions. I'm definitely going to use a voice/personality of Cas from Supernatural as one of the characters. But I'm definitely keeping my idea to use Ash instead of Van Richten.

    What 'causation', can you (or me or anyone) describe why magical fire is affected by being underwater? Fires don't burn underwater because water denies them oxygen, but magical fire doesn't (perhaps, nobody knows) use oxygen. If it does, then would a fireball work in an atmosphere lacking oxygen? Would it work in a vacuum? I mean, really, there's some consistency here? No, there's no...

    On causation - prompted by Sadras, and (I think) consistent with what AbdulAlhazred has been posting. In AD&D, a dragon gets combat bonuses when defending its young. Does that mean that, in the world of D&D, only dragons are driving to great effort to protect their children? No, it means that the designers, who lavished a lot of attention on dragons, thought this was an interesting idea to...

    Technically I guess it would be an interact with object, and more than setting up a trap and flipping a switch to trigger it. I don't see why not breaking invis is a big deal in this case, since there's only a certain number of beads. Of course you can say, "an attack is this", but the thing is that there's tons of definitions that are explicitly and narrowly defined in d&d. It's what it is....

    I have a copy, but haven’t really read it yet. One of the features of my home brew setting is an underground “subway” system that connects dungeons together. The system goes for miles and miles and allows for travel underground (in some cases it’s actually an easier path than overland) I’m thinking it could be a very useful resource.

    WoTC may "want" each player to buy everything, but all the basics are free and you can share the paid material. It's not perfect (far from it), especially since you don't own anything you've bought from DDB. So if it goes t*ts up, you are SOL. And it does not address (and will not address) those folks who have already bought the physical books. I did see a video that explains how it works....
