Does DR 5/Good and DR 5/- stack? And so on DR 4/- and DR 5/- stack?

Many thanks for your answer :)

DR does not, generally, stack. Only if it explicitly states that it does, or in the case of blocking DR that stacks with passive DR.

No to both. DR 5/- means that nothing bypasses it. DR 5/ Good means that good aligned attacks bypass it. So the DR 5/- will never be superseded. So DR doesn't stack, but it can overlap. For example, say you have DR 5/ Adamantine, DR 3/ Piercing and DR 1/-. So anytime you were attacked by a non-Adamantine weapon, you would subtract 5 points of damage. If you were attacked with a slashing or bludgeoning Adamantine weapon, you would subtract 3 points of damage. And if you were hit by and Adamantine piercing weapon, you would only subtract 1 point of damage.

Besides blocking DR stacking with everything, I think the only DR that stacks is the FvS's DR 10/Adamantine with a WF's Adamantine Body.
