What are the official abbreviations or short forms of the 3rd edition of the D&D books? There appear to be a few different styles or forms online.
Even though the Player’s Handbook says a dragonborn only gets one breath weapon per short rest, is there any way outside of rule 0 for a dragonborn to gain multiple uses per short rest, like by using a spell or magic item?
The spell Beacon of Hope lasts for one minute and states:
For the duration, each target … regains the maximum number of hit points possible from any healing.
If a party is taking a short rest, can the party Cleric cast this spell during the last minute of the rest to ensure that the party regains the maximum possible hit points on their hit dice rolls?
If casting the spell interrupts the rest for the Cleric, can they still use Beacon of Hope to maximize the hit dice healing for the rest of the party?
Currently we are playing a horror adventure in D&D 5e. Due to circumstances (beings locked in a haunted house, rooms changing just when we close the doors, etc.), a 1-hour rest is hardly possible.
Our DM ruled that short rests can be as short as 10 minutes. The obvious result is that we can take it. What are other changes that we, both players and DM, should be aware of?
If it matters, party consists of Lore Bard, Vengeance Paladin, Chaos Sorcerer and Divination Wizard, all level 3.
Simply put, is there a statistic on how many Short Rests most tables take?
Perhaps as something researched by WotC or another entity?
I feel that the statement is true. I want to prove it. but I don’t know from where should I start. Any help would be appreciated.
I had an exam question on why security canaries should be short. I suspect that is so that the attacker has a harder time finding the canary. Is that right?
I’m new here, but i am already addicted to reading and answering questions. I am predominantly on my phone.
What i am wondering, is how can i beef up my posts? I recently learned about using > before a line to create the yellow box effect. Are there any other simple tips and tricks to help make my posts look that much more professional??
D&D Basic Rules v0.1 says on page 67 that a long rest is interrupted by “at least 1 hour of walking, fighting, casting spells”. So does that mean that 59 minutes of combat doesn’t interrupt the long rest? Or does any combat or spellcasting count as enough interruption to restart the rest?
