This issue addresses general questions popping up in the last few months.
Q: Does the Living Greyhawk Journal count as campaign documentation for Living Greyhawk, allowing me to use Living Greyhawk Journal rules options without further campaign documentation?
Q: Is the Features of the Griffon’s Nest section of Greyhawk Ruins: The Griffon’s Nest article usable in Living Greyhawk without further campaign documentation?
Q: If I level during Red Hand of Doom, would retraining prevent me from borrowing time units from 598 CY?
Q: How do I determine if I am “living” somewhere for determination of my home region? If I am stationed or otherwise working overseas for a fixed period of time, am I living there?
A: There is no fixed formula for determining whether someone is currently living in a location. A common sense approach should adequately guide most, if not all, cases. Obviously, you cannot take advantage of both your home and overseas address at the same time.
Q: Can a dragon disciple worship a draconic deity?
Q: Can a GM of an online game email adventure records to players?
Q: Does an everburning torch or the spell continual flame allow clerics of Vatun to prepare spells?
Q: Can a PC commit suicide?
Q: If I cast a spell with an XP component, then die, how do I handle the XP cost?
A: Apply the cost as it happened in game time. If you die after paying the XP cost, you do not need to subtract the XP cost from your new total upon being raised.
Q: How does skill retraining work? How do I determine my maximum ranks?
A: In Living Greyhawk, retraining is considered step 1.5 in the leveling process. Your maximum ranks are capped by your old level, as you have not yet gained the benefit of increased ranks of the new level. If you are leveling from 5th to 6th level, your maximum ranks during retraining are 8.
Q: Can I use retraining to qualify for a prestige class I am taking as my next level?
