    Bringing in legal definition of legal terms in the context of legal language seems fairly legit, tautologically speaking. That video game enthusiasts misuse words hardly has bearing on their proper usage, so yes, the legitimacy of the usage is highly in question, though really the answer is patent.

    It is almost an other-worldly experience, looking down into the waters of Lorica's Well. Crystal clear liquid sits dormant and still, some feet below the dais’ lip, as though reflecting some imagined sky of cloudless blue. Like chaotic stars, tiny flecks of color glitter upon the surface from time to time, a rainbow smashed and it's dust floating atop. White coral encases the captured sea in a...

    Good enough for me, and Google turns up plenty of links where the term is used. It has a meaning for video game developers outside of normal contract discussion, and a term that's used for video game developers can be pretty easily related to TT game developers. As a hardcore descriptivist, I'm easy to satisfy. :)

    I've always viewed Magic Missile as an attack that auto-hits with no need for a roll. Not precisely the 5e wording, but that is my interpretation of the intent. Mirror Image is a spell that, unlike other defenses, does not increase the AC of the recipient (which would be a slam dunk for MM to bypass); but rather introduces the chance that the attack will target an image. MM still requires a...

    I've never used the "encounter building" rules and didn't notice any game theory in the OP, but I think 5e's easy mode is all about death saves. I think it has nothing to do with feats, though I have complaints about some of them for other reasons. The death save mechanic and subsequent whack-a-mole effect also scales with party size. You get a six character party and half of them have healing...

    In a home game it probably doesn't matter in the long run - just discuss it with your DM and hopefully they'll either keep doing it the way you are used to, or let you swap the feat out if you really don't like the change. In AL...it's a bit more problematic. You frequently have a different DM for different games - and the DM's are free to use or ignore the Sage Advice clarifications as...

    It has always seemed to me that at least in the Forgotten Realms setting Half-Orc is a really common race, and certainly not exotic. Given their numbers, how one generally encounters them eveywhere coupledwith the low lifespan, the whole 'orc raider with human woman' doesn't seem to fit the circumstances. I suppose it is best I continue going with 'humans who carry the stigma of orcish blood'...

    I'm not sure Timestop is even useful for buffs, since most (though not all) buffs are concentration spells and you can't layer them on like previous editions. So at most, you would be able to quaff a potion or two and cast a single buff (maybe two if you have a non-concentration one). Given its use as an "Oh crap" type spell, the severe offensive limitations, concentration reducing buffing,...

    There's nothing that says we can't. All it says is that we don't. Part of the assumed default setting is that there is not significant mixing between most of the races. That dwarves and halflings have never in their genetic history chosen to mate with a human, could just be a cultural thing.
