    Thank-you for all your replies and all are very well thought out and useful. My original thought was a baseball type strike, the dwarf gets his hammer back but as it takes 'the long way back' the dwarf catches the hammer the following round, therefor missing a round. But, Giant Monks would actually fit in my campaign better . Thank-you to all that took the time to reply.

    Yes. That's pretty much what I was thinking. The "going to her brother" thing was to SAVE Titus. But you're right. It's because the child showed mighty magical promise, the Thayan came to collect when his father failed on his end of whatever bargain. Titus' uncle intervened, and cut Titus off from his magics - or so he thought. The only thing that I felt differently about was that I felt that...

    Why do you find the melee hunter bad? Sure, Hunter's Mark interfering with making the bonus action attack is aggravating, but if you pull it off you can get 2d6+2d6+1d8+modx2 by third level. That makes them a blender of death. 4th level (or v. Human) you can turn that into 2d8+2d6+1d8+modx2 and +1 AC. Get Warcaster for advantage on concentration checks and you are sitting relatively pretty ...

    No, but 5 +1s to make another +1 that is actually useful, that's not far-fetched, and ONE +2 to make a particularly useful +1 is not absurd either. Some enchantments are QUITE worth it for specific characters. There's no way to universalize all item levels. They vary from party to party and character to character.

    There is a theory that Ghengis Khan’s tomb was hidden by rerouting a river over top of it. It might be interesting to have the tomb hidden under a river that changed course shortly after the Ranger died. Maybe the Zhents are looking for someone with a specific name but some research could lead one to realize that was the name some called the river before it changed course or something.

    The thing to remember is that there can be no Strength (Athletics) check without the character attempting an action that has an uncertain outcome and a meaningful consequence of failure. The existence of a rule that includes an ability check and DC is implying an approach to a goal that precedes it which has an uncertain outcome and a meaningful consequence of failure. So, when we look at a...

    I feel like that might have a negative effect on player agency. That is, there is a mechanic that seems to be in the purview of the player -- a rule regarding Strength (Athletics), for example -- but the player has to play "mother may I?" with the DM in order to act. I'm not sure that produces a positive play space.

    Sharon is ideal for the Yawning Portal - there’s an enormous undercity full of dangers, as the hobgoblin ruins of Ja’Sharaat, the Cogs, and theSewers all add multiple dungeon levels. So a bar in, say, Lower Dura, having a huge pit in its middle that leads into the depths wouldn’t be out of place.

    Well...this may seem inconsequential but I think it is very important. Players don't declare that they are using skills. Players say what their character is doing and if the DM judges that the outcome of what they are doing is both in doubt and interesting/has consequences then they call for an ability check and may call for a skill to go along with that. So in this case the player would...

    Way too fiddly for my taste. I don't want to have to roll a d6 with every single attack and convert it to 1-3 before adding it to the total (One of the goals of 5e was precisely to get away from this sort of thing). What was the thinking behind it? Does it add something to the game? I don't see how the unpredictability will change any behavior/tactics, since the d20 roll already makes...

    I'm first thinking no since there are several items/quirks that are in each world that would need to be forced on other worlds. Dragonmarks in FR and such. Special races that are specific to worlds such as warforged.

    Right, but the value that people place on various abilities is subjective. Most people don't know how to properly value things. The only reason top player's opinions in various competitive games are trusted is because they're top players. D&D isn't competitive so what is seen as 'best' is a matter of what the majority of people think is best. There are many nuances and concepts in...

    You have some guidelines in the book, the rest is up to you, personally I give more penalties to people with armor, heavy weight, etc and use the xtreme difficulty (25) for world recor distances. In any case my advice is to adjudicate difficulties fast and keep going, don't lose time with that.

    Not going to disagree with any of this. You have it exactly right. One thing I would add though, is the fact that, at least according to any numbers I've seen, about 50% of D&D players are homebrewers, so, I'm not sure that republished module play is as common as you think. I think it's the most visible, but, I'm not sure it's the most common.

    Yes, I do, in the sense that in all four games NOTHING is being created. The only difference is complexity.

    That’s not how it works. There is no penalty for failing to jump a distance, you just don’t jump as far. What is underneath you doesn’t matter for the purposes of the jump check, your check determines the distance you jumped for that effort. Think about it, as a DM you say “it’s 20’ to jump across a chasm, the DC is 20, start making checks as you each jump across.” Someone gets a 19, so...

    Thank you for the response! That is a fine idea, but it doesn't really address the problem I see down the road. It is just a more flexible take on legendary actions. Look, I like legendary actions - a lot. It is just they have there limits. When you have a group of 4 gods (PCs) fighting an ArchFiend, his generals, and a platoon of devils I see legendary action craziness being a problem. ...

    dco replied to Secret hit points?
    I find the combat of D&D very unrealistic, lots of hits, damage, binary consciuous-unconscious... and because of this I find descriptions uninteresting. I also think you should have better ways to build tension as someone said. But that's me, ask your players and if they want try it, perhaps it improves your experience.

    Ahh, I see. In that case, what I would change would be similar to what you say you would, particularly the part about not trying to include every story that eventually got referenced throughout 4e’s run. I’d pair it back to the core ideas of the setting and restore some of the mystery. My guiding philosophy, if I were to redux Nentir Vale would be “folklore, not history.” The Dawn War, for...

    This is what my players had to deal with in the game I ran today. I was just posting it in case anyone else found it interesting. :) It was incredibly confusing but fun as the Orator kept layering on different control effects that contradicted each other. One guy had Confusion, Suggestion, and Enemies Abound all at once. And the orator always suggested that they heal him with whatever...

    Nope. Companion Bond is the class feat at 4th. It gives your Hunter bonus to your companion. Full Grown Companion is 6th level. Gah! You said druid. You're right about druids! Sorry. I missed the druid qualifier there. :)

    Try one with two swords. Depends on what you understand from the twitter screenshots, for me it is quite clear. I find the melee hunter also extremely bad. I don't need experience playing the class to see its problems. I didn't bash anyone.

    Icosa considers his options. As he continues to track the assassins, he sends a handshake signal to the strange weapon that's integrated itself into his arm. The device has connections, but he can tell that it also has it's own separate processor and sapience. The potential existed, perhaps, to gain access to the weapon's functions via subverting its protocols, but that seems unwise. Short of...

    I kinda like using the standard rules for legendary actions, to simulate extra turns or actions the creature has. Perhaps still calling it a legendary action, but say it can use it at will, or at the beginning of combat, or as an action surge, instead of only at the end of another creatures turn. Could be very dynamic. Legendary Action, Cthulhu's Encroaching Tentacles, +x to hit, damage x,...
