    I was just going to say the same thing. I had a grappler in 3.5 that was completely broken even at fairly low levels without even trying. I wasn't the only one, it didn't even take a great deal of system expertise or min/maxing. Whether or not grappling being so inconsequential in all but a few edge cases in 5E is personal preference of course.

    Start by naming them, and I don't mean "Bobo" or "Meatshield". Next, consider what their role is in the party, beyond "He'll watch the horses". Does the Druid's animal companion scout for the group? Does he/she/it have a real combat role? Does the Wizard's familiar scout, carry touch spells in combat or provide a flank for the Rogue? Realistically, if you never make use of them,...

    Hi, I DM'd a 5e session set in Eberron. Things didn't go as planned (as they always do), so I instead let my players have a long sandbox session in a metropolis (Fairhaven, for those who know Eberron). At the end of it, they entered a haunted cathedral. Turned out the cathedral wasn't really haunted, the screams and ghosts were all illusion magic. Then they found the magically hidden...

    Third parties outside if Beyond or WotC have able to sort thru the publicly available data on Beyond, so it is reasonable to assume that WotC, using their big data resources, can do the same. Indeed, the wide use of D&D Beyond is one of the big changes needed in the period where they abandoned the Ranger experiment.

    Yes. One person was actively kicked out of the game for cheating on dice rolls and making offensive comments that made female players (especially) feel uncomfortable. A few others I passively stopped inviting to games. One guy brought nothing to the game, mostly came to eat snacks and complain about things and fell asleep on the couch. A few others just weren't good fits for the group.

Tolkein ripped off existing myth and folklore as...

    I’ve never kicked anyone out of a game, but I have stopped inviting certain people to future games. And I have certain people I won’t invite to the same games, because while they are each fine on their own, their play styles clash to the point where neither enjoys playing if the other is there.

    The DMG rules are based around the idea of damage per round. Since a faerie dragon has a DPR of (roughly) zero, gaining advantage on attacks does not affect their damage per round. Zero times anything is still zero.

    Except the DMG has rough guidelines for estimating how any given ability (from the small list at least) affects any given monster. And it's wrong. What's more your argument doesn't even make sense, Nimble Escape and Superior Invisibility both offer the same offensive advantage, regardless of how much effect that advantage has.

    Abilities don't work in isolation, it's how they combine that determines how challenging a monster is. If a faerie dragon had 3d6 sneak attack, then an ability that granted them automatic advantage on attacks would significantly increase their damage output. But as it is, they try to annoy players to death with illusion spells and insipid cuteness, so Superior Invisibility is of little offensive...

    I think the reason the game doesn't go that high is because there's a point of diminishing returns for the player base - I've played all of two games in my life that went above 20th level, and one we started with 17th level characters with the express purpose of getting to epic levels. For the majority of my play experience, by the time I've gotten to the mid-to-late-teens for levels, I've...

    Yes. He is involved, though probably not directly. Angis looks good.

    The other day I compiled a list of all of the other survivor threads into one thread, so you can see which ones we've already done duplicates. I haven't updated it with the most recent thread because it doesn't seem anyone cared lol http://www.enworld.org/forum/showthread.php?646018-Survivor-Results-Compilation

    The Beamdog "enhanced editions" started off pretty rough, but after all their patches they're generally worth getting if you don't already have the original games somewhere.

    I almost didn't vote for him, being the obvious choice and all. But since I have a Lord of the Rings tattoo, I kinda felt obligated to do so. :D

    Well, for every 100 paladins there may be 100 anti-paladins. They cancel each other out kind of like matter and anti-matter. Or pasta and antipasto. Why do you think only the good guys have epic level individuals? But in my epic campaign, the PCs rarely fought solos, they've never worked very well. In addition, demon/devil lords are a paranoid bunch and aren't going to be caught without...

    I'm afraid I don't understand the cries for freeform creation. Any classed system only remains so as long as there are restrictions to customization and options. I am not excusing Paizo's cluttery limitations, but I do expect the devs to set limits on each class, that you simply cannot overcome (unless you multiclass). Otherwise classes would lack identity and you'd be better off playing...

    I'd imagine there's not much an empath can learn when hunting someone, other than "He's afraid but acting normal", and "She's way too interested in that news report." Mind readers, yes. Definitely, and the Mind Shield Exploit does that pretty well. Really, any means of increasing your Mental Defense would help. And learning how to control your emotions, so you don't ever show any or dampen...

    You can use Wis for a sling attack with Magic Stone. I'm currently playing a rogue using Wisdom as his attack stat. As stated, Wood elf is the obvious way to use a bow for a druid.

    iserith replied to Missing Rules
    Yeah, at a certain point, the rules leave off and the role of the DM necessarily kicks in to make a ruling and that's going to come down to preference. So while you, and Max, and I can explain why we would make the call we would make in play and pemerton and robus and others can explain why they'd make a different call, these are all matters of personal preference and not up for debate, at least...

    I think it was really just two that objected. The third never really said anything. Though, interestingly enough, it's always the women who come to me wanting someone else to leave. The only guy who ever complained was the husband of one of the women who were complaining. Not sure what that says, though.

    Nope. There was the Grappler feat, but that was just sloppy proof-reading since the rule it refereed to had previously been dropped and was, iirc, about creatures two sizes larger than you.

    This is true, to a point, but 2 considerations: 1: Most campaigns don't last to the point where you are getting level 9 spells. Planning a character to level 20 seems like a futile exercise to me. 2: Multiclassing in warlock may hurt slightly less, but it still hurts! Sure you don't "lose" slots but you lose higher level spells. My character would have access to shadow of moil and an...

    And telling us this in every thread daring to find faults with WotC's material is exactly what I consider trolling. Why are you even here?

    I've at least partially figured it out. Nibble Escape is on exactly two creatures: Goblins, and Goblin Bosses. The more common of which are Goblins. And Goblins only have one attack, so hiding does get them advantage to all their attacks. (Weirdly enough the Goblin Boss uses the same TWF house rule as me .) Still doesn't explain why Superior Invisibility is so low, but does explain Nimble...

    If you are going to pretend you don't know what criticism that is directed at the PHB Beastmaster, I don't understand what you're doing in this thread. Bollocks. Don't you have an opinion? A critical mind of your own? Sheesh.
