    Would like to know how cantrips are going to scale with character level Have we read anywhere that cantrips scale? They didn't in pf1 Yes, they scale. "In the playtest, cantrips are spells you can cast at will, but they are no longer level 0. Instead, they automatically heighten to the highest spell level you can currently cast. That means if you're 5th level, your ray of frost is 3rd level and deals more damage, and your light cantrip is better at counteracting magical darkness."

    I'm hoping that have a better character sheet in the playtest for players to use. They do. It has actually been shown, although only the first two pages, so we don’t know what the spellcasting sheet looks like yet. Here.

    I meant state in the general, government, definition, not the State of Indiana. Though the State is only responding to judicial actions in regard to business owners. The ADA clause regarding business owners which some would have expanded to other 'classes' is tyranny of the major against the business owners. They may be 'bad' business owners with outdated ideals, but they are still losing their freedom of association. They are reacting to judicial action, but not what you're implying. They're taking an opportunity to take the Hobby Lobby decision and apply it to the state to keep municipalities from penalizing businesses who discriminate against homosexuals. Before the Hobby Lobby decision, the federal RFRA hadn't been applied to for profit businesses nor, by my understanding, had the courts endorsed the refusal of services because they may enable "immoral acts". Now, they have. This legislation is pretty much license for hotel owners to bar homosexual couples from renting rooms if they thin...

    You have mentioned 'tyranny of the majority' a couple times, but that's what you're advocating. The majority is passing the law to force the business owner to perform a service they do not wish. It may be seen by different people as 'good' or 'bad' but still the state using force to have the business provide the service. I think you missed the initial context of the conversation. Indiana is passing a law making it legal for businesses to refuse service on religious grounds, AKA permission to discriminate. The state is doing pretty much the opposite of what you just said, though your phrasing leaves out the underlying bigotry that motivates laws like this.

    As far as I know, you can not claim IP on a game's mechanics, so don't know why they could ask to pull this down. Mechanics are mostly, kinda, non-copyrightable, but you certainly can copyright the presentation of those mechanics. That means you have to rewrite everything in your own words. Given 5E's "natural language" approach, that requires quite a bit of work, and could lead to discrepancies if your interpretation differs from someone else's. I don't have a problem with WotC enforcing their copyright. I do wish they would hurry up and tell us what they have in mind around licensing. From what I've seen, the sense of the community right now is that at least part of 5E is slated to be OGL-ed, based on comments by (I think) Chris Perkins. Those comments are a few months old now, however, and we've heard nothing more since.
