    You can TWF with armor spikes. It explicitly says they can be used to perform an off-hand attack. :D
    Also, that moment when you're both the rules lawyer AND the DM.

    Ok so you could use two weapon fighting and use spiked armor if you have multiple attacks as part of your attack action. Start with one free hand and use the attack action, replacing one of the attacks with a grapple. The spiked armor will deal damage, then use your normal attacks with a light weapon. Now use your item interaction to draw your second light weapon and use your bonus action to attack.

    RAW gets a bad rap because of people trying to use it to tell the DM what their OWN MONSTERS can do. That's simply not how that works. The only way you should be arguing for rules as written is for your own character's abilities, which would allow for exploits in certain circumstances. For example, Polymorph doesn't require that you've seen the creature before, but Wild Shape does. With RAW, all you need is a lake or mirror to have an OP Moon Druid in a few days of downtime.

    "The Dark Eye", my favourite system, has a neat little rule to protect the GM from rule lawyers: The DM is above the rules.

    The funniest thing is, I play d+d with a lawyer and we often argue over the interpretation of rules and the wording of cards, because he is used to picking holes in wording for a living and I’m a grammar Nazi. We’ve nearly come to blows over it at times.

    I used to have problems with rules lawyers at my table.
    My solution: become a game designer, and run games I designed. It's harder for a rules lawyer to argue with "I wrote the game, here's how it works".

      :-D Make more chapters where your players are forced to roleplay and interact normally with NPCs. Where they can't spellcast, fight or skill feat themselves to a good solution.

    Talking is a free action, but if enemy has higher initiative, he can attack you as interruption, just like when you're casting a spell.

    Any idea if Paladins can use cantrips from the Boros Legionnaire background? My DM says I can, but I'd rather not break any rules by doing so, since Paladins don't normally get cantrips.
