    I use a different rule in my own game. Short rests work like stated in the PHB but you can only take a long rest in a safe place (i.e.: not in the wilderness or in a dungeon). It's less drastic than the one you are proposing, yet still stresses the danger of adventuring. I would suggest discarding this rule. D&D5e frowns on bonus, as it tries to speed up calculations as much as possible....

    Not quite as bad, but still "impressive". I only found the 2e PHB errata well after I stopped playing it, and it was about on par with what we've got now.

    Sure... Once one has had time to learn and understand the system in question before popping off to make what may seem like innocous changes that can actually have knock-on effects that the inexperienced DM wouldn't know about because they haven't had a proper grasp of the unmolested system. In other words... No one is telling anyone not to change the rules, the suggesting is to get a thorough...

Things were looking up! He was completely caught off-guard by the attack. He tumbled and evade the worse of it, but still was hit. "By the gods!!!" was all he had the time to say - or think.

    I think more focus needs to be put on the OPs first sentence: The players wanted a shift. Presumably this means they want a more 5e style game. Taking 5e and trying to make it more like 2e kind of goes against that desire? What really should happen here is the DM having a conversation with the players. What did they want in the game? Do they want fast or slow healing? Do they want crits...

Abd 5e is very different from previous editions. Yes, it evokes a similar feel to 1e and 2e, but it's very much not those games. Relying on your experience with those rulesets will lead you awry.

    But, you just described limiting the player options just as I said happens. The PC reaction cannot be "whatever, I ignore them and do what I want." This differs from being grappled, say, where the PC could still say that and attempt to walk away only to fail automatically. This is saying that the PC cannot even contemplate such actions and the player is so constrained in action declarations. ...

    Of course it is good advice!

It seems like some of the vocal minority on this forum is very objective to changing 5E. It is far from perfect, even if some aspects of it are superior to prior editions...

    Yes, I agree that was the issue, difference of definition in interpretation. Gotcha. Your statement about Burning Hands clarifies it nicely. Since opponents at higher levels have more hit points, Burning Hands is not as effective an option as it was at earlier levels. Part of my point, however, is that spells like Grease and Shield gain no benefit from using a higher level slot, as...

    Well, given you made a similar post just a few weeks ago and were strongly told that you also were misunderstanding the system.... Long experience is good for general advice -- to a point (I'm pretty sure your advice fir a PbtA game would be limited) -- on the specific topic of rule tweaks to 5e it's of limited value. Closing with a cliched platitude does not good advice make.

    So per the phb, you are in theory supposed to be granted inspiration for playing your ideals, bonds flaws and traits. In practice I think very few people do this.

    Ah, I think I see where we're talking past each other! When you talk of scaling, you're talking about the magnitude of the effect increasing over time (as compared to the magnitude staying constant). To you, auto-scaling means that Grease would affect more targets, or Shield would prevent a larger percentage of incoming damage. When I talk of scaling, I'm talking about the magnitude of the...

    It definitely needs a lot of work. As others have said, its far too good at low levels, being much better than the fighter. Especially at level one where it gets a Fighting Style AND a Leader Style AND a Commanding Presence. Most 5e classes have a single small choice at 1st level, not three. It also gets three attacks, which is almost a signature ability of the fighter. That's a bad idea....

    It's tucked away in the initiative rules. Alongside the formula for KFC's spice blend, the secret incantation to summon Cthulhu, and the shooting order for the faked moon landing videos. Unfortunately, the 1st Ed initiative rules are completely incomprehensible, so we'll never really know. But it definitely is in there. :)

    Do you intend to avoid the typical D&D pseudo-medieval setting then? If not, it might help to learn some history. In medieval England (male) peasants where required, by law, to train with weapons, as they could be drafted into the army at any time. This would have begun at around 9 years old. The knights of the period where mostly far from good, and didn't, on the whole, have divine...

    OK here is a quick re-cap you fiddled with a teleportation device which moved you around the underground passageways. You then ended up within a forest and did battle with a shambling mound which inflicted significant damage upon the party. You found a young William senior in a hut hiding out while he transformed, he took you home to meet his father who was having dealings with Azgalan. At some...

    I don't see a list of Tactics nor a list of Tactical Gambits. Am I overlooking them or are they somewhere else or ...? Despite how it displays, that URL seems to be a "mailto:". ??

    Maldin replied to Carl Sargent
    Carl Sargent was indeed a giant among RPG designers. He hadn't written anything in a very long time, and has already been missed for quite a while, however his legacy will live on. My friend Rik Rose has penned an eloquent tribute to Carl Sargent. Rik was a close friend of Carl’s in the beginning of Carl’s involvement in Greyhawk (in fact, he was responsible for Carl’s involvement), and was...

    Well, my usual advice on advancement is this: Even if you have an idea of what you want to do later on, remain flexible. See how the actual game your in is developing then advance in a way that makes sense story-wise, not just "build" wise. You're 12th lv? You definitely need to talk to your DM about the setting etc & come up with some backstory. Because that can greatly influence how you...

    I figured you wouldn't mind me using the Yklwa (it's from Chult in Tomb of Annihilation). It's kind of half a sword and half a spear. I felt it suited my Centaur bristling with spears more than a sword did, and I found that he can't really use a lance, which seemed kind of appropriate, if possibly broken.

    I hear the new special editions are really nice. I avoid the issue by using DnDBeyond, but if not for that, I’d probably pick them up. Anyway, yeah I figure JC explained what the rules text said, and then noted that it didn’t seem to say what they meant it to, this the errata. Which is fine with me. Paladins are still rad as hell.

    This, with everything else a distant step behind. For systemless lore, the Grand History of the Realms is a good book. It came out between 3.5 and 4E, I believe, and is a nice complement to the FRCS. Ad in Ed Greenwood's FR book and you've got a great quartet of FR books.

    The sense of massive scale in this movie is amazing. Makes the 98 Godzilla seem tiny. What little we see of Mothra looks cool.

    The original boxed set was the best starting point for gaming in the Realms IMHO. Everything that followed was an obligatory sequel.
