2 squares reach are 10 ft for everyone. Why should be height included. Arm length is neither...

That said, I would place a 12 ft rooftop 2 sq above on a map, so yes.

Just my 2 cents. I'm no judge.

Someone 12 feet high is 2 squares up. Your reach allow you to attack someone 2 square away. So it should suffice. If your master want more precision, you need to jump 2 feet high or find a step 2 feet high.

Well, most creatures are 1 square tall(what I said above in a slightly more pithy way), meaning your reach goes 2 squares up as well as 2 squares in other directions. A character with reach can reach something occupying the 3rd square up.

I just pre-convert all measurements into squares and maybe annotate it's precise height if needed. Saves discussion/calculation/argument at the table since how tall in feet anything is doesn't matter mechanically, just the square - excepting high jumps IIRC.

Okay, wow, it's been two years since I've been here. Last time around, my laptop died around the same time I had to move, and this just kind of got lost in the shuffle.

I'd like to get back into it again, but can someone remind me of the policy regarding Dragon Magazine 'round these parts? I've been itching to roll up a Sword Guard from Dragon 395 (read: Intelligence based Eladrin Knight) for some time now.
