    Dimension Door states: “You can also bring one willing creature of your size or smaller who is carrying gear up to its carrying capacity. The creature must be within 5 feet of you when you cast this spell.”

    It feels like there’s an intention of being able to touch that willing creature. If they’re within 5 feet, but separated by a thin wall, or if they’ve been swallowed by something, the within “5 feet” & “willing” parts of this can be technically satisfied without the caster having any line of effect to grab the person they’re teleporting with.

    Despite not mentioning any actual touch or line of effect, were touch or line of effect part of what was originally intended when writing this spell?

    Does the watcher Paladins “Aura of the sentinel” count as being proficient in Initiative rolls? Considering bards and harengone I know grant half and full proficiency respectively. It says “Grants a bonus” as opposed to allows you to use your proficiency bonus.

    This is mostly a RAI question. If an enemy is unconscious, the PHB says you can move through that space as difficult terrai n. I assume this means I could step into that space to attack from that space. My question is whether I’m allowed to remain in that space after the attack.

    For a dexterity saving throw against purple’s worm attack, to not be engulfed, does the feat shield mastery allows to add shield bonus to the save ?

    in the “one grung above” pdf the grung race (and the monster in MToF) has a long jump ability, and it causes it to jump high enough to take fall damage, so rules as written: a low level grung character (or the monster) can jump itself to death, i want to know if this was intened, and if it is, i know for sure homebrew can fix it

    Hi my question is about the flensing claws from volos and the interaction between the claws and beast barbarian subclass that let’s you grow some and attack twice. I want to know if I can use the flensing claws damage but still get the extra attack .my thinking is along the lines of lady deathstrike and wolverine where you already had mutant potential but had it enhanced by the metal grafts. and the subclass feature makes my hands bones grow larger if that was the case it would be cool if it made my handsize increase from medium creature to large for larger damage dice
