I'm not familiar with the meme you're talking about. I only meant angsty and overly emotional.
I'd agree that sneaking into the party's camp to rob them would get old really fast, but if a goblin grabs your bag full of treasure off the ground during combat and runs away that seems kind of hilarious to me. I guess maybe I'm a bad person/DM.
If you give them a good chance to get it back its funny. Else it's just spiteful

I think that would probably end my gaming group. Lol
Definitely a possibility. I'm pretty sure I'm multiclassed.
A real composite blast for Aether + Aether would be nice.
Yea. The force blast is a bit weird to me. It does less damage, but with the exception of very specific instances (ghosts anyone?) force damage isnt overly useful.
Further not needing to "throw something" isn't a valid argument as the telekinetic blast has no lower limit. With the current RAW you can telekineticly throw dust motes and do the same damage as throwing a boulder.

Roll of the proverbial genetic dice and all that. :-)
Age bonuses maybe? lol.
Random thoughts: I think if you're reasonably well adjusted to society you're going to have fairly good mental scores (13+). Plus they improve with practice. Personally, I learned to be charismatic in College. Prior to that I was so awkward I could barely talk to people.
Additionally, assuming you live in an industrialized country, we're living in the information age. With the internet it's much easier to gain knowledge now than it was even 20 years ago. If you are curious about something most people have a device in their pocket that can access the answer. It's MUCH easier and more effective than finding and using an encyclopedia or researching at your local library.
For purposes of navigating society a person uses mental scores a lot more than physical ones. There's some notable cross over. Our society values the appearance of health, so a good musculature is going to be expressed in both STR and CHA.
Again, game stats don't necessarily translate great to real life.

Based on Wonderstell's criteria it would seem so. Rest assured I'm as surprised as you are.

You get used to it. Military members, for example, generally carry around 110lbs in gear during wartime. At first it's awkward, but once you develop the muscle mass and get used to it it feels like part of yourself. Do you perform better without it? Of course you do, but that's the case with anything.
Based upon Wonderstell's scale:
Str: I'm not an athlete, but I work out. Being 6'1 and 208lbs helps with the strength measurement.
Dex: I'm not a total klutz, but I do have a tenancy to trip and otherwise cause minor injuries to myself. I was a touch surprised by the low number, but those are the criteria. Incidentally, I'm a pretty good shot with a gun, but perhaps that's just practice. Weapon focus (Firearm)
Con: Similar to Str, I'm a big guy who takes care of himself, so perhaps that's a factor. I rarely get sick. I do keep clean, but don't worry about germs too much. Perhaps this exposure helped too.
Int: I have a cerebral job and have always been ahead of the curve. I'm no genius, but I'm definitely ahead of the bell curve. I though this number would be higher, but what do you do? I'm a technology consultant for a global consulting firm. It requires a high degree of analytical ability.
Wis and Cha were a bit of a surprise to me. Based on the aforementioned criteria those are the numbers. I understand most situations and am empathetic, so that's cool. However, I feel like my charisma is something I turn on and off depending on my mood. I'm generally well liked and lots of fun when I feel like it, but I also am totally happy being a hermit for periods of time. Go figure
Would it be possible to get the spell if you actually meet one of the race that has it? Such as if you sit down at a table to play your Human Wizard, and someone else is playing a Wayang wizard, and you decide to swap spells. Would the wizard be able to learn a Wayang only spell from the Wayang if the Wayang had it to teach? Or would this fall under the same blanket PC can not access the spell?
Same question. If a halfling wizard scribes a halfling racial spell onto a scroll then hands it to a human wizard can that human wizard scribe it in his/her spellbook?
I disagree. Based on my (possibly flawed) memory I don't believe holding and releasing is a stated requirement.
However, even if it is a requirement most (possibly all) standard familiars can grasp and release. Beaks, claws, monkey hands even have thumbs. Even the lowly snake can grasp a pebble in its mouth then release. Even non magical Ravens, for example, are capable of very complex manipulation and even feats of engineering.

141. It grows one large coffee bean humanoid that can provide unlimited coffee. He says only "coffee, coffee, coffee" but the planter can always understand him. He is strongly lawful evil so he is always suggesting evil plots. If Coffee Man is killed and buried, 2D6 Coffee Men grow on the resulting bush.
It's a calculation for the Challenge Rating for the DM. Has no effect on HD or animation calculations.

I think we're on the same page. However, I generally have a problem with City/States that have a no magic policy. Quite frankly, if the offending caster is of sufficient level and the city/state has no magic of it's own then the city/state is screwed. Seriously. Level 20 mage (because why not) can easily level or conquer such a place. Gate in a few Balors then sit back and watch the fireworks.
It's more feasible if the city/state has it's own casters to help regulate magic as opposed to banning it.

That's literally what it says.
"The warded creature or object becomes difficult to detect by divination spells such as clairaudience/clairvoyance, locate object, and detect spells"
Lets break it down:
Warded creature = Someone with non detection on
Edit: *sigh* forget it. I'm tired of arguing with people today. I'm sorry the facts as presented don't fit your narrative. It's a cooperative game. If you're going to house rule about this please let any player who might want to use this tactic know in advance. It'll make for a happier table.
Good gaming all.
Keep in mind that you still have to roll with nondetection. It doesn't just block divinations like Mindblank.
It says Divination spells. Based on how the english language works that means all divination spells. If they had meant some divination spells they would have had to say so. However, if I say "I don't like potato chips" it's understood that I mean all potato chips. Therefore if it's a chip and made of potatoes I don't like them.
"What about sweet potato chips?"
1) Is it a chip?
If both answers are yes then I do not like them.
Dave Justus wrote:
Why is it not divination spells when it specifically says divination spells?
It doesn't say "detect spells," which is not a spell category anyway. Detect is an action in this case. Non detection specifically says divination spells.
I really don't understand how this is debatable.
See invisibility is a divination spell. (not debatable)
Non-detection offers some protection against divination spells. The fact that it also provides an example list isn't really a factor.
Non-detection does not say it protects against only the divination spells in said list.
I really don't get where the confusion is.
Edit: then again sometime people want to beat things into the ground. As always feel free to house rule however you'd like.
Nondetection is debatable. See Invisibility isn't a 'detect' spell, so arguably it's not included in the subset of divination spells protected against by Nondetection.
See invisibility is a divination. Non-detection wards against divination spells, not "detect" spells.
