    That is the idea. Though, now that I think about it some more, high attack bonuses could be an issue Not quite. I look over a tweak these first drafts now and again. There are some differences because my ideas on some things have changed, but all in all everything posted here is using the same general design philosophy. FYI, both Bane and Garl use the same design principles. They may...

    Well, I can't estimate the AoO odds when using a Polearm Mastery build, it's too dependent on the enemies you're facing and enemies' decisions.

    The player needs the DM’s OK to make a check. If it doesn’t make sense, then the DM doesn’t allow it. They don’t just go ahead and make checks. They describe what they’re doing, then the DM asks for whatever check is appropriate.

    Perhaps. Keep in mind, however, that we weren't just reading the PH and DMG back in the day. Every month another Dragon magazine would come out, and it didn't take much reading of those to realize just how flexible the game could be to suit different styles. In 4e this might be true but in 1e the 10 soldiers would, while likely sustaining a few casualties, take down the 1st-level guy -...

    I just want to add a reminder that most bonus action spells are made so because they are meant to be used in the same turn with an attack. The extra rule about being able to cast a cantrip in the same turn is because of attack cantrips. Instead of thinking about it as a restriction ("you cannot cast another spell unless it's a cantrip") think of it as an allowance ("you can cast a cantrip"). ...

    Indeed, the idea is the populace is against the modrons like it was against the king but they have no choice and now, with modron police, turning rogue is VERY difficult (except for PC?) It's no easy way to imagine every day life as commoner, paesant or trader... One another fact: modrons are in the cities, but the world is huge and rogue may easily hide in countryside.

    No. What I do, is just call for an ability/skill check at a time. Then depending on the result I narrate the consequence, and the player decides what to do next, which might eventually call for another ability/skill check. It's quite normal for a success in a skill check to lead to new possible actions, as well as a failure in the first check to prompt the player to either try something...

As you might or might not be aware, these prices are set based on a specific set of assumptions: They assume the characters gain wealth roughly by the rate the DMG treasure guidelines result in.

    Okay so gravity is not spell out. AbdulAlhazred - what about specific spell effects when casting underwater (fictional positioning)? It does appear like these effects/rules were created due to the causal nature of the fiction.

    I've done an all Fighter party and it worked out pretty well. Combat was a breeze of course. I think an all Bard party would be great fun and quite effective. I would also like to see an all Cleric party. I think they would be great too as long as they all don't dump Charisma. and then of course an all Paladin party would just be silly powerful overall. Seems like there was a thread about...

    I have a copy, but haven’t really read it yet. One of the features of my home brew setting is an underground “subway” system that connects dungeons together. The system goes for miles and miles and allows for travel underground (in some cases it’s actually an easier path than overland) I’m thinking it could be a very useful resource.

    Session 39 – Defeating the Druids at the Wizards of Wine Vinyard Inside the basement, we took a quick breather, finding some wine called Purple Grape Mash #3. We didn’t drink any for fear that it had been tainted by the Druids. Then we made our way up to the 2nd floor of the building to check rooms for the remaining Druids. ‘ One of the first rooms we went into was a balcony room...

    WoTC may "want" each player to buy everything, but all the basics are free and you can share the paid material. It's not perfect (far from it), especially since you don't own anything you've bought from DDB. So if it goes t*ts up, you are SOL. And it does not address (and will not address) those folks who have already bought the physical books. I did see a video that explains how it works....

There, it was done, he clambered back to lean against the wall and exhaled. So much change would come, so angry were the heavens he’d seen, a rare view...

I ask because I have noticed since Xanthar's Guide to Everything was released my GM is using a lot more passive investigation/perception checks and it would be handy to have. Since I just have the one Devil's sight (120ft Dark vision) entry and my...

    Saw Black Panther today. Good but not what I expected. The "greatness" of the movie isn't the plot or acting. It is the attempt to use proper African myth / life. Still good. Course, I believed no one in my family was bias or the sort. Perhaps not bias but they are ignorant. Wife had issues with the use of plates to stretch the lips and ears.

    My absolute favorite RPG activity is creating the setting. I have created dozens of homebrews. It's a curse! That said, I will sometimes run in a published setting, if the adventure is really good and is tied in to the setting. (Curse of Strahd, Holdenshire Chronicles, and Princes of the Apocalypse are good examples that I've run, and I'm itching to give Zeitgeist a try once it's fully...

    Ugh. That's not a comment on Veins of the Earth; I haven't read it. That's a comment on the link. What an awful, awful review. I have no respect for any review that spends so much time bashing another product, or (especially) the people who like that other product, as a way of trying to build up the one it's reviewing. Unprofessional and unpleasant.

    There was a kickstarter a few years back for the Dungeons & Dragons Documentary. It was running behind, of course, but it seemed to be moving forward. From what I am seeing now, I can't see that the project is still in the works. Now I'm worried that I'm out some money. Anyone know what happened to this project?

    This seems like taking, "I don't like it, and this is why" way too personally. Edit: If you'd like to know my reasons for why I experience so many D&D settings this way, I'd be glad to elaborate, but arguing over matters of taste seems pointless to me.
