 1DR134 Dragon #134 D&D: What are the "attack ranks" (A-M) noted in the Players Companion, pages 30-3l?  "Attack Rank" refers to the column of the combat chart that the character may use. This allows demi-humans with extra experience to fight almost as well as fighters. The small letters (a-d) refer to other special abilities that demi-humans can get after reaching maximum level. These special abilities include multiple attacks per melee round and the other fighter combat options (Players Companion, page 18), and resistance to various attack forms. A careful rereading of the demi-humans section (Players Companion, pages 29-31) should clear up your confusion. 
 2DR126 Dragon #126 What does “1d10” mean? What does “d%” mean?  “1dl0” means roll one 10-sided die. “5d10” means roll five 10-sided dice. That is, the number before the “d” is the number of dice and the number after the “d” indicates the number of sides each die has. The abbreviation “d%” indicates percentile dice: that is, roll two ten-sided dice, reading one die as tens and one die as ones in order to get a number between 1 and 100 (00 = 100). The term “d%” is also expressed as “d100!” 
 3DR126 Dragon #126 What does “NSA” mean?  “NSA“ refers to swords, and means “No Special Abilities.” In other words, the sword is unintelligent and does not have an ego or any extra powers. 
 4DR043 Dragon #43 At what level does the Hand of Vecna operate for the purposes of overcoming magic resistance?  21st level. 
 5DR119 Dragon #119 D&D® Masters Set: A “T” or “D” result only Turns or destroys 2d6 HD worth of undead. Does this mean that undead with more than 12 HD cannot be Turned or destroyed?  A “T” result, or a successful roll on a Turn attempt when one is required, always Turns at least one undead creature, regardless of its hit dice. A “D” result always destroys at least one undead creature. This is also true for both “D +” and “D#” results. 
 6DR134 Dragon #134 D&D: How does a + 1 weapon help a character? How does a ring of protection + 1 help a character?  A + 1 weapon gives the wielder a + 1 bonus to hit and damage rolls. A ring of protection +1 gives the wearer a + 1 bonus on all Saving Throws, and improves the wearer's armor class by one place. 
 7DR134 Dragon #134 D&D: How many spells does a 1st-level magic-user or elf have in his book? When can he add new spells? Does adding spells cost anything?  A 1st-level magic-user or elf has a book of two spells (see the Basic Set Players Manual, page 38, and the Basic Set Dungeon Masters Rulebook, page 19). A magic-user or elf can add spells to his books each time he gains a level. The spell added to the book will be the same level as the spell gained on the spell progression chart. For example, a 2nd-level magic-user gains a new first-level spell for his book, since he has gained the ability to memorize an additional first-level spell; a 3rdlevel magic-user gains a second-level spell for his book, since he has gained the ability to memorize a second-level spell. A magic-user or elf can also add spells to his books when he finds scrolls or other magic-users? books; see the ?Sage Advice? for DRAGON® issue #129 for details. 
 8DR079 Dragon #79 What is a balrog, and what are the statistics for it?  A balrog, as described in the Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien, appears to be similar to lower planes creatures like demons in the AD&D system. (Note that the original rules for the D&D game did include mention of creatures such as the balrog and the hobbit, but those references were changed or deleted in subsequent editions of that game, and the terms do not appear in the rules for the AD&D system.) The Type VI demon in the Monster Manual resembles the balrog, but is probably not as powerful as a true balrog would be. If something meant to be identical to a balrog is to be used in a variant AD&D game, the DM will have to invent his own game statistics for the monster after carefully reading the various Tolkien books. 
 9DR039 Dragon #39 Aside from the obvious ones (pole arms and bows), which of the listed weapons are two-handed?  A battle axe, spear, morning star and bastard sword can be, and a bo stick, quarterstaff, two-handed sword and a trident always are. 
 10DR119 Dragon #119 D&D® Masters Set: What is a bec de corbin? What is a fauchard?  A bec de corbin looks something like a halberd with a “beak” instead of an axe head; use the halberd rules for this weapon. A fauchard is a weapon much like a bill, doing the same damage.
