    I have an idea that solves 2 problems: Using xanathar's guide's potion creation rules, you need to open and examine the liquid, possibly even observing the effect. And then after the potion was opened, it is only usabke for maybe a few weeks give or take.

    It seems that the Action Careers chapter isn't updated to v1.2. There are references to the stunned and immobilized conditions in several career exploits. The universal exploits all seem to be the old versions as well.

    Wanting to run a gamer site free of right-wing politics is a completely natural thing. Morrus owes you nothing. He needs to do nothing. Allowing politics but cleaning out right-wing extremism (that goes under the deceptively neutral name "conservativism" in the US) is a perfectly reasonable stance to take that needs no elaboration. Welcome to Europe.

    The fluff was there from the beginning when Mezzodaemons, and Nycadaemons first appeared in AD&D Fiend Folio (1981). I remember running 1st Edition games and not seeing them in any modules. I used Mezzodaemons a lot because they were powerful, tough, magical, and worked with demons and devils. The "daemons" from Fiend Folio were a different type and it was only a matter of time before...

The only time conservative viewpoints get silenced is when they use the current insults du jour for those not as conservative as they are.

    That's what we did. And in my experience that was a really good call. Whenever anything in the character builder triggered a "wow, now _that's_ awesome!" reaction, it was from Dragon magazine. Also, sometimes players wouldn't pay attention to the source of the power of feat they'd chosen and during the game when they'd first try to make use of it everyone went like: "you can do WHAT?!" I.e. I...

The prince chuckles softly as he sees the small and, in his mind, vulnerable gnome woman looks up at the imposing warrior, and it is he, not she, who lowers his head in defeat. The dragonborn is satisfied, convinced that these Teraphim are not more powerful than him. Despite their tools and training and magic, in...

    I think Shroomy is right. I don't know what Gygax had in mind, but as presented in D3 mezzodaemons and nycadaemons are not distinguishable from demons: they're evil beings from other planes that the drow seem to enjoy hanging out with. In Gygax's DMG, they appear in the glossary, but are described simply as "monsters" (the glossary entry explains that you can ignore them if you don't have D3);...

    I wonder if people confuse it with being about balance because the developers have said that, when creating new options, they always balance them against the options in the PHB. Mearls brings it up a few times in his weekly design stream. I always thought it was about new players not wanting to be have to feel like they need to buy all the books to keep up.

If you're going to fight the avatar of a greater god then you better be prepared and hope that the cleric can restore the sight of anyone who was blinded.

    I disagree. One can believe a being exists, but deny that it is a god or worthy of worship. The fact that a powerful being shows up and does things beyond comprehension does not mean they're a god, it just means they're incredibly powerful. And frankly, D&D has a rather loose definition of "deity" anyway.
