    My favorite heresy: mundane vs. mundane & magic vs. magic, please!

    I have a pet peeve that existed in multiple editions, I would like to see "corrected". Fat chance. But I am going to speak my peace. When facing nonmagical but physically dangerous opponents, whom do you call first? The Wizard. When facing a steeped in magic dangerous foe, whom do you call...

    Grappling help please...

    The grappling rules make my head hurt. So I am taking the bull by the horns and attempting to understand it completely once and for all. I would appreciate assistance by getting the descriptions of non-core feat and grappling related abilities, as well any FAQs, cheat sheets, or similar...

    Familiar's & Master's skills

    What exactly does it mean that a familiar may use the master's skills? What bonuses do and don't transfer over? PHB p. 51: "Skills: Use the normal skills for an animal of that type or the master's, whichever are better." Suppose I have a Wizard with a Spot skill of: +6 Ranks +1 Wis +2 Unnamed...
