    That makes absolutely no sense to me why someone would take such a hard line. Somehow building blocks (earth, wind, air and fire) in a world of magic are devoid of any Newtonian science because hey supernatural world. I guess the use of gunpowder is supernatural too?

    They've declared that they leap with enough force to cross the chasm. Whether they make it won't resolved until their turn. In any case, I don't see what it hurts or why you're so hung up on it. You don't want to do it that way. Fine. Don't.

    To me, CON for the second save makes more sense. I'd have been more comfortable making the change if the player had complained before failing the second save. (Not sure from the OP in what order things happened.) As for why RAW is the way it is, I guess simplicity is one possible explanation, although given that the saves are separated by a round, I'm not sure the argument that making one...

    No, each 'group,' as the DM judges it, in a given 'combat,' as the DM defines it, goes 'at the same time,' as, at the risk of repeating myself, the DM defines it. To have any more leeway, you'd have to be sailing Waterworld. Besides, the whole city of goblins pretty much just wake up when David Bowie sings.

    That energy doesn't have to be magic, though. I'm fine with there being "The Force" and calling that magic. It flows through everything and binds it, without making what it flows through and binds magical. Luke did just fine levitating inanimate objects and bending minds of mundane people.

    Yes, I would agree that the game term for magical has a specific meaning. However nothing in a DnD game makes sense if there is not an intrinsic magic to the world. It would be like arguing that there is no energy in a rock even though Einstein already proved that there is.

    The issue is that in game terms, saying something is magical has specific meaning, and it doesn't mean a rock, though it might mean a Roc. Some of us like to not have terms muddled into uselessness, and a claim that the entire D&D universe is magical does just that.

    I wouldn't think anyone would feel too upstaged by someone poking away with daggers, however quickly he may poke, even if he does eke out a little more DPR. ;) But, really, it's not that new, it's still an extra attack for using a whimpier weapon, much like TWFing. Potentially better in some ways, though with no upgrade path of it's own, like Duel Wielder. And, if it doesn't need a bonus...

    Its super slow. Not a weapon that is of any real use unless a siege or pitched battle. By introducing this you essentially get a super crossbow open to exploitation.

    The math is certainly useful in white room balance predictions. And sure, there are potentials for abuse. But I also think that outside those abuseable situations, the option creates a new kind of melee fighter that can be fun to play. Now, will they outshine the other players? Or will other players feel upstaged? I'm not sure, but my gut feeling is that it's close enough to be comparable and...

    I'll let it slide, but only because the Shadowcaster in ToM was awesome. :)

    So, if you have a d8 weapon&shield, and an extra +2 from dueling style, and, say, a 14 stat, you're doing d8 (4.5) + 2 + 2 with the one and d4 (2.5) + 2 , /twice/ with the other. Sounds comparable. Of course, if you can cheese up a second style, you can combine them. Obviously it's less damage than TWF, since you are gaining the shield benefit. But, if it doesn't use a bonus action, you...

    Personally, I don't mind this so much. I know at my tables, people will still tend to gravitate to the bigger weapons, but this may give them some reason to explore different kinds of melee characters. Also I have a feat that grants a fighting style, to limit dips.

    So I do fighter capstone differently, based on the fighting style. That is the capstone for this fighting style. Besides, I think the extra attack is more interesting personally than max damage.

    TPK would have ruined the storyline for the show. Matt was out to set an example (his NPC even said so). Thought it was handled well, regardless of rulings. Character death is what it is. Sets Loreenzo up as a major antagonist down the line. Totally worth the extra time!

    One concern I have is the saying that "weapon damage dice don't kill monsters, bonuses do". (Okay, that saying was from AD&D 2ed, and probably just one DM, but still.) The base case works fine. But can this be abused? A couple of things I can see: A single level fighter dip can double a rogue's chances to land their sneak attack without taking up a second hand or using a bonus action...

    Like the goal of boosting the d4 weapons. Not sure about the extra attack though. What about this? Precise striker - You can use small weapons to their maximum effect. When wielding d4 weapons you always do the maximum damage possible with them when you hit. So at first level Dagger + shield - 7 damage (11 on crit) +2ac 2 daggers - 11 damage (if both hit) Sword main hand dagger off...

    Ew. No. Few things ruin a game session for me more than an unfun combat encounter. (But then, I'm also quite happy to have an entire session of pure RP or problem-solving, without a single die being picked up.)

    Considering that each weapon is limited to a d4 damage, I don't think that is sufficient when comparing to a d8 weapon with a +2 and shield or a main hand d8 and an off hand d6 weapon. As for combining them, TWF requires a bonus action, off hand weapon, and doesn't grant modifier bonus to damage. If TWF just grants an additional attack, the what happens to the bonus action attack potential? It...
