Skirmish and Sneak Attack[edit]

Check that all Prestige Classes that require Sneak Attack will also accept Sudden Strike and Skirmish, or specifically state otherwise.

I thought Skirmish was incompatible with Sneak Attack, as the former grants AC bonus but the latter does not. --Pwsnafu 18:40, 21 May 2007 (MDT)

That's referring to the bonus damage. Some feats/PrCs require sneak attack damage, some require skirmish damage, and some let either ability qualify. With sudden strike, by default it can be substituted for sneak attack (but not skirmish), unless it's specifically noted otherwise. —Sledged (talk) 22:39, 21 May 2007 (MDT)
Do you want me to include those as alternatives to sneak attack on my prestige class "combat assassin"?--Drew 19:23, 10 January 2008 (MST)

Modify Author Template.[edit]

I added three optional parameters in the author template:

  • display_name - specifies alternate text to display instead of the author's user name (author_name). This parameter is ignored if isnotuser is set.
  • isnotuser - if set to anything other than whitespace, this specifies that this user does not have an account. Also, if this is set, there will not be a link to the user's talk page.
  • url - specifies an external url to link to instead of the user page.

As an additional note, I put in a request for the parser functions extention to support a function that tests whether or not a specified name is a registered username (although I suppose I could hack the extension myself). If the request is fulfilled, I can change the template to automatically detect if the value entered for author_name is a registered username. That will get rid of the need for the isnotuser parameter, and the need to manually check every page that uses the template. —Sledged (talk) 14:32, 29 May 2007 (MDT)
I would take a look at Template:Author again, some (like the last option) appear not to work. --Green Dragon 22:54, 31 May 2007 (MDT)
If you're talking about display_name not showing up, it's ignored if isnotuser is set. —Sledged (talk) 07:32, 1 June 2007 (MDT)
Ah... Sorry then. --Green Dragon 23:02, 1 June 2007 (MDT)

druidic.net- Where does it go?[edit]

Hey everyone, two questions: we can transcribe stuff from this site, but where does it go? Do we just spread it out over the homebrew section, or make a new section for it? Also, do the links for these articles require any prefix (like the SRD: or UA: )? Just wondering so I can start with this once UA is transcribed. Thanks. DemonSlayer 03:49, 2 July 2008 (MDT)

I would all go on it's own page it is similar to an "Other" book. (I believe) --Sabre070 04:42, 18 November 2008 (MST)

Goodman Games[edit]

Now has a 404 error. --Sabre070 04:42, 18 November 2008 (MST)


If the requested sourcebooks are going to be D&Dwiki creations/clashups, do we want to give them any fancy names or just leave them descriptive like they are (i.e. do we want "World of Exploration" or "1624 Sourcebook" type naming?).   Hooper   talk    contribs    email   18:24, 1 July 2009 (MDT)

Wording Issues[edit]

I work hard on this and demand it be seen as thing to do. Alternatively, if there's an actual reason, I wonder why it's not. --SgtLion (talk) 04:18, 7 June 2013 (MDT)
