    Can you give us a little more detail on your player complaints, or better yet get some of them to post directly ? If half the party is unconscious several times per day, it probably is too hard. If every combat takes 3 hours it might be that they want it over sooner, and it's not about the challenge. If a few characters don't contribute much and those are the player who don't like it, it may...

    The thing with movies and 007 movies specifically is that all the gadgets get used at some point. It is not as fun having a ship that gets a boost of speed, but never need it to catch the BBEG. Some other cool gadgets may include: Shooting grappling hooks that latch onto other ships. Invisibility cloaking devise. Greater armor, or something similar to the wizard shield spell. Stealth...

    This was me initially. I have DM'd for 20 years starting with BX and up through 2E. 2E was definitely my bread and butter. A few years ago one of the players in my group decided to DM a Tuesday evening 5E game. I really had no interest but after hearing a couple players raving about it I decided to show up and play a session with them. They were running LMOP and were in Thundertree, getting...

    Sorry capnzap you lost me on this argument. The CR system says “if a party’s level is below the CR” they may have an exceptionally difficult time dealing with it”. Now you and I have both pointed out that many monsters are over CRed especially at high levels. But we can’t have it both ways. In this scenario the CR is working correctly. Quite simply, a party is not meant to have a...

    If you really have a statistically significant number of rolls at 18+, I believe we can then say that that campaign is outside the design space of bounded accuracy, and that the results don't apply to a general discussion of the mechanic.

    Sure. If it was being published by a reputable third-party publisher, I would probably comment that it's too strong for current community expectations. But I consider the boundaries for what should be published to be much stricter than something that would actually break a campaign.

I'm not sure I can get behind the notion that buffer classes should not spend resources to buff allies though.

    Theoretically a 3rd level Wizard could fill 98 pages just from just the PHB spell list. There are 30 level 1 spells and 34 level 2 spells. If you go with just the spells gained as you level (assuming you always take the max level), a 13th level Wizard should need 102 pages in their spell book.

    RPGing is generally an ongoing activity. So what's going to happen if the players lose? Until you know the answer to that, it's probbaly premature to talk about toughness of encounters. (I assume it's combat encounters that are being talked about here, but the same thinking applies to other sorts of challenges/situations that a game might involve.)

    5E is a good edition but I doubt its because of how good those 2 feats are. 5E has a few warts, I think the ease of running it is the biggest point in its favor. A lot of the warts also won't crop up in a lot of games as the casual players don't know and the hard core players don't always powergame. We used the -5/+10 feats a lot when 5E came out but the monsters are so weak its usually...

One point of the hardcore monsters is to beef up the performance within the given CR, right?

    1 page per level of the spell, nor just 1 page per spell, so a level 1 spell uses 1 page and a level 9 spell uses 9 pages. Depending on how quickly a DM allows a PC Mage to acquire new spells, a 20th level mage could have several full spell books, definitely more than one each for just the higher level spells.

    No that's a false representation. It's not that you can know in advance which save to prop up. And you can't prop up all your saves. And the caster's in your group should not help you in the first place; spending resources to turn a 100% miss rate into maybe a 90% miss rate is just bad tactics. So no.

    Nothing's stopping them, except that while using duplicants they're torturing people's souls in the witchoil that forms the bond. And most duplicants are cheap pieces of tin that break readily.

    I think adventures should be challenging to promote a sense of, well, adventure. This can be done in many different ways. A tough encounter is an obvious one, but I'd encourage you to run a wide spectrum of difficulties as it keeps the players guessing. Besides, even "easy" encounters drain resources from the PCs and that creates pressure within the adventure as well.

    Even that being the case, the attack bonuses monsters have shouldn't dramatically outstrip the defenses characters can have, I'd think. That's exactly the wrong way to balance missing bells and whistles. Bells and whistles don't matter in combat encounters, which is what most 'monsters' are statted for. That'd be like saying, "You get a bonus on checks to convince merchants to give you good...

    “It’s heartening to see so many gathered in one place, meeting in peace and willing to discuss how we can work together and set aside old differences.

    Nope. It just keeps you from having multiple concentration spells active at once, and gives concentration spells a risk of ending when you take damage.

    Nope. It's one of the few things that exists as a game term and doesn't really make sense with common language use. The details are just before the spell lists in the PHB.

    That and Castle On The Hill, respectively, are lynchpin songs in my playlists for my two 5e rogue characters. Dresden’s love of his shipmates, and the horror of seeing them killed by a necromancer and used as undead minions, and his guilt about surviving by being in town haggling when it happened, are represented in I See Fire. “If we’re to die tonight, we shall all die together.” Not so...

    I think encounters should fit the story. So sometimes they'll be easy. Sometimes difficult. Many times somewhere in-between & occasionally even just flat out impossible (depending on how the players choose to proceed).

    It really depends on why you're playing, IMO. That is to say, if you're playing for the sake of a challenge, then yeah most of the encounters should be tough. If you're playing for the sake of a an interesting story or mystery, then probably not as much. Especially for mysteries, the challenge is/should be putting the clues together, not so much getting the clues in the first place. Then...

    You aren’t engaging with the actual point I’m making. I don’t care about nitpicking. iTunes doesn’t put those tracks on your iTunes library, or add them to iCloud for you, just because you purchased a cd. It allows you to manually rip the files from disc to the library, and it’s a very easy process, but if for some reason you weren’t willing to do that, you’d have to do without or repurchase....

    Pretty much any '80s rock you'd have heard on a pop station/MTV between '81-to about '88. Because that's what was almost always on in the background as I was absorbing BECMi & 1e. And for some reason: *anything by The Stray Cats makes me think specifically of The Isle of Dread. *anything by the Bangles brings Temple of Elemental Evil to mind. Yeah. I have no idea how the wiring in my head...

    It’s so weird to quote someone and then block them, especially when I literally wasn’t even rude to them or anything. But, yeah, I think they misunderstood from the start what the argument was. I was stating (correctly) that DDB is the iTunes of dnd 5e content. On either platform, the platform doesn’t give you anything for free (unless it’s made free from the copyright holder), but does...
