Re: Spellcasting and interruption.

The exception in that paragraph seems contradictory too. At first it says both spells can go if on the same initiative count. (Which begs a different question about why simultaneous spells don't hinder each other, but spells lose out to simultaneous frog spit and kobold spears.) However, it goes on ...

Re: OGL Confuses Me!

I hope I didn't seem on the attack. I just don't want to get in trouble if I release something which has the same rules as a pre-3rd edition.

OGL Confuses Me!

Where can I find a plain language list of what is and isn't OK for me to borrow/modify? I have ability scores with different effects/benefits/penalties than normal, c...
