    Note that "an IP" in this context is a business term, not a legal term. It is often far from certain what is actually covered by rights holder rights, and it will vary by jurisdiction. However in the US system it is easy to hurt someone without having a strong legal case, and hard to defend without incurring a lot of expense, so people normally err on the side of caution.

    Since I started 5e, and over the stretch of a half-dozen DMs, I've never seen a character death in any of the various campaigns I've been in. In previous editions, we had lots and lots. And lots. I'm not sure what changed. I guess, once you reach a high enough level, you're clear of insta-death from mass-damage and you, therefore, don't die from a sword wound but instead, die from failed...

    Please.... as if Metacritic user scores mean ANYTHING in instances like this. 307 negative reviews and I'd bet dollars to donuts that 95% of those are by people like you who did not play the game and have no interest in the game and are entirely motivated by the delusion that if they attack Anthem it will cause EA to rethink it's behaviour. The hilariously false idea that EA will suddenly...

    IME there are very few* jerk GMs - and I speak as an overly demanding player who tends to quit games that don't meet my excessively high standards. Just because I disagree with a guy's GMing does not make him a jerk. IME a GM typically wants the players to have a good time, and puts in a lot of effort in his/her attempt to do so. Positively saintly, in fact. :p *DeathbyDoughnut's supervisor...

    If you had an odd con I would recommend resilient con as it gives some extra hp and the save then. I don't think you want to lower your intelligence or wisdom though which is what it would take to boost con to a 15 and then have resilient con boost it to a 16

    It can work. It just depends on the campaign and the dm. You pretty much will always be hit when targeted and bards donít have a lot of great defensive spells like shield to help in that area. If your dm will avoid targeteting your pc in combat because back line guy and all then youíll be fine. If he will occassionly focus on you over the other party members then youíll likely die as soon as...

    CR is almost completely meant to be a measure of how much damage the Monster can a) dish out, and b) take. Your brownie can take none, and barely dishes out any either. By the guidelines in the DMG (Page 274) your brownie reaches the low end of CR 1/4, and based on my own experience homebrewing monsters, I'd peg it at CR 1/8 because it's hp are sooooo low.

    I'd say there are obvious reasons, like you have an existing game going and converting is hard. Or, you just really like XYZ addition. But also, you can do different things in different editions. 3.5 is a little more LEGO-like, lots of fiddly bits and pieces to put together. 5E is more like Duplo, still bits and pieces, but less of them. 4E by comparison is lincoln logs, it's got similar...

    I tend to go quite a few sessions between perma deaths, maybe 15-20? A common cause is being killed and turned into an undead. Being eaten by ghouls or cannibal berserkers can also do it. Several perma deaths in Stonehell over about 80 sessions. My new Primeval Thule game has no raise dead so any deaths permanent.

The class abilities your class would get were all available from the get-go. At level-up, you just got *better*, but didn't get any *NEW* abilities, other than possibly spells or multiple attacks. Also, skills and feats: their mere existence...

    House rule? I don't see this in the DMG...though of course it's always possible I missed it. The only thing mentioned that can provoke an attack is disengaging from melee, as already noted above.

    Neat idea. Were I DMing, I might be tempted to tell the player that requires researching a new spell. Well, "research." It's a druid so I'm thinking it would entail a few days meditating in a grove, inhaling various expensive varities of "incense." Probably ( one day and X gold) per spell level. The party would then have to decide if leaving the river open to attack for a few days was worth...

    At my table, this would shatter suspension of disbelief like an extinction event comet. This is functionally the same as reading a module beforehand and knowing where to go for the best treasure because (after a long sigh) you just got lucky. Or encountering a new troll freak for the first time and using its weakness immediately because (again, long sigh) you just felt like changing things up...

    Two questions: #1 So the vampire spawns deal necrotic damage when they bite and reduce the maximum hp. If they hit me with regular piercing dmg and necrotic damage and I have temporary HP can I choose which source deals damage to the tHP? Because if I can then my max HP is not reduced if I take the necrotic dmg before the regular one. #2 If my maxHP is reduced in such a way that it falls...

    Iíll take your questions one at a time. Why play older editions instead of 5e? Lots of reasons, generally based on preferences. For example, The 3e family (including Pathfinder) allows for lots of nitty gritty customization of characters. Some people prefer that to 5eís character development. Are there ways 3e is better than 5e? If your preferences and styles are satisfied by 3e more than...

    Because I've been playing Command & Conquer mobile game Rivals... Wolverine Mk1 The Mk1 Wolverine is an anti-personnel headless mech with slab sided armour, two arms fitted with a chaingun each, and large ammunition supply mounted on the back. It is lightly armoured, but enough to protect against infantry weapons, has good speed to out run any infantry, but not very well equipped to combat...

    If that is the problem, then you should be able to view the page once someone else posts. You could also try increasing the number of posts per page to reduce the overall page count.

    Playing in D&D 5e I've had three characters die over 5th level: A 9th level Ancients Paladin was killed in a cutscene, a 12th level Shadow Sorcerer was killed by overwhelming odds trying to escape jail, and a 14th level Monk was killed off screen between sessions.

    I went from the Basic Red box to Gurps and then back to DnD for 3e 3.5 (and Pathfinder) does what I need it to do, 4e was terrible so I stayed with 3.5 and 5e while good isnt different enough to warrant the change I'm tending more towards FateAccelerated now though

    I enjoy stealing things from all sorts of settings. Want a desert area? Al-Qadim, Dark Sun, Dune, Tatooine. Need some cool magical devices? Eberron, Numenera/The Strange, Final Fantasy. There is inspiration and things to steal from everywhere. My PCs just ran across a couple Devout Paladins for a Church of Light, they don't know these paladins are copy/paste Stormcast Eternals.

    Mike Mearls on the What Would the Smart Party Do podcast recently talked about how people don't like learning new rules. Outside of communities like this, I wonder how true that is? I can say of my couple gaming groups, all but one or two of my fellow group members have ever read a rpg rulebook, much less multiple.
