Here is a good distinction at work I share my position with the owner's son. If I want to keep my job I am obligated to show up be at my desk and answer the phone among other things. His son has incentive to do so, by that I mean his dad has flat out told my supervisor that he won't relocate or fire his son he can come and go as he pleases deal with it. But if he does manage to show up for at least 3 days a week he gets he truck payment made.
So we need to "logically" differentiate between using an adamantine skillet as an improvised weapon vs using a body part clad in armor as one. But not between golem naming conventions and other creatures naming conventions?

Careful that way will lead to a very silly place. Like Camelot only worse.
Let us not forget that the CR thing means that long lived big bads who have risen in power are less likely to be remembered.
Commoner's can remember the orc captain who raided their village last fall. However the evil lich who shows up each winter to take a sacrifice.......... who are you again.
Sorry let me rephrase i mean an existing character which is what we are talking about. Not a character that didn't exist prior to being cast and played.

So are you going to start insisting that Perception be run Raw as well.
No Bond not Dark Tower sorry should have specified.
I do try to look at factors but too often I see the arguement that Asian character in an Asian Setting written by Asian's better damn well be Asian. But then see the same people call someone racist for saying that a European Character, and I clearly mean a white guy just so we don't get into the fact that yes not everyone from Europe is a white guy, in a European Setting Written by a European, should be European.
Now if your arguement is that an actor/ress isn't gonna work for the role because of reasons besides they aren't the right Ethnicity, then those reasons are just as valid for why one is the right choice.
And that's my disconnect here. I don't typically get up in arms over casting choices in movies or TV. But when I see an uproar over a casting choice because the source character is x and the casting choice is y. But then when the character is Y and the casting isn't its fine and all kinds of reasons are listed as acceptable. I just look for consistency in people and it bugs me.
Maybe its not just about winning the fight and killing everyone. Party is tracking an assassin through an elven forest. Elves jump the party but Bob the barbarian and Dave the Diviner have the teamwork feat where both can act in the surprise round and wreck the ambush party. Then rest of the party then realizes these are good guys after someone points out they are forest guardians. A cease fire is still a good option.

So your opinion is that prior to the release of UI no one ever could have asked for a break in combat without surviving a 10 round onslaught without death or retaliation back?
No the rules allow it against anyone if and this is the biggie it's worded favorably to them. Makes it a bit of a issue if they are kicking your ass then doesn't it.
I guess if the Giant Hunter's handbook is legal then one could use the current rules from UI to "suggest a course of action" and make them think a temporary cease fire is their idea.
Sanctuary: One of 'ems castin a spell don't trust it.Vanish: One of 'ems turned invisible he gonna stab us in the back keep at em boys.
Defending: Might work but remember to put our weapon away.
Moving away: still have to stay in sight of most of them but might work.
Alot of people have that thought about table variation. If a class has an oft argued over feature most people will tell you to plan to use it in the least favorable light because its the worse case scenario for using it under multiple GM's. I don't want to wonder each time I go to play if I can do x this game or if I will get it at x-1 or even x/2.
My life in early college, wrangling 7 guys who worked odd rotating shifts and homework to boot. My rule was if we get 3 we are pushing through
Yes that way lies the Hammer of Locking let us not go there.
