    If the player isn't going to create a character to work well in the game then no one is obligated to play with them. It doesn't matter if something is 'in the rules' we can and will say to someone that we don't think they are right for our game. Life is too short.

    Are you suggesting that a player who wants to make his own character, according to the rules, is not allowed to do so if you wouldn't play such a PC yourself? Are you suggesting that a player who has a backstory that you didn't think of is an entitled snowflake out to mess with your carefully crafted story, and must be banned from your table? Sure, it's possible for a DM to have houserules...

    Perhaps if the character can, take the Prodigy feat for the most important charisma skill. Also if Tomelock, take the guidance cantrip. Luck Feat could be useful as well.

    The Charleton Background makes one of Assassin's main features, Infiltration Expert and Imposter, redundant. Yes, with the Assassin features, you can make more false identities, and with the level 13 ability you can make it so you don't need a check while the Actor Feat merely gives you advantage, but if you have Charleton and actor, you can make any class into the Assassin.

    Yes. Do they? This is from the 2e Monstrous Manual "Dragon Flight: Despite their large size, dragons are graceful and competent fliers; most are maneuverability class C. This is due partially to their powerful wings, and partially to the dragon's innate magic. Dragons can climb at half speed and dive at double speed." So it seems dragons do use magical assistance to fly.

    Well, it’s all a product of the imagination, so I don’t know what artificial is supposed to mean in this context.

    I kinda think that there are two different levels of the issue here. One in a DM issue, and one is a player issue. In a more inclusive age there is a much stronger pressure on DMs to be inclusive in their world building - somewhat dependent on what they know about their group. If you know your group and their expectations conform pretty much to yours then you do not have to worry so much. But if...

Also, for what it's worth, 4e goes your way (Rules Compendium, p 139): If the creature runs out of movement before landing, it also falls. However, if the jump was part of a move action, the...

    I would say that you are artificially limiting a persons movement on their turn because you don't like to leave PCs hanging. Even though they aren't really hanging in the air ... there is no time gap between turns. Poh-tay-toe poh-tah-toe. Neither are "true", both are "true". It's just a different ruling and a different perspective that was addressed in the first few dozen posts.

    That isn’t a result. That’s just a restatement of the player’s action declaration. The goal is to get across the chasm, and the approach is to leap through the air with enough force to do so. Unless there’s some special circumstance, the DM normally says yes to movement and notes any resulting change in the situation.

    No one denies that, or is unclear how, hp are used to communicate ideas from DM to PC. And no one denies that, or is unclear how, hp totals communicate a character's closeness to death. But this isn't what causes people to assert that hp are metagame. Here are some things that do cause that assertion (I am reporting from my own experience, both as a RPGer who was one of those who dropped...

    What does it refer to? I don't know what you're talking about, but I'm talking about stances, which is a notion that Emerikol brought into the thread, that Aldarc followed up on, and that absolutely is about establishing fiction. From the Ron Edwards essay that Emerikol's blog has copied and pasted: *In Actor stance, a person determines a character's decisions and actions using only knowledge...

    "Masto! Back, back!” The hound’s master calls towards the bushes. Beginning to stand, those around him might notice a wince upon his face, a tiny hint of pain in the old man’s bones. The half-orc stood abruptly as Metea gracefully made off to follow the ranger and the hermit’s hound. “Wait!” His grunted suggestion came too late. He looked at Otiroth then with a knowing expression. His...

    Does "loosely approximates real world physics" mean anything more than dropped objects fall, but dragons can fly without magical assistance? Physics, in the real world, isn't just a list of facts. The discipline is a set of interrelated principles stated in mathematical terms; the phenomena those principles describe are things that follow certain regularities in behaviour and causal...

    Yes but the price of rubies is also tied to their availability (and purity and cut for specific items but not for the crap stuff and dust) so if rubies are very rare their base price is higher and the amount of ruby dust needed goes down which makes it easier to find that smaller quantity - unless a GM adds in a setting specific twist to select components. Some GMs have diamonds of certain...

    Actually I would chose +2/+2 over it anytime. I just like "boring" simple bonuses that are always active and quietly vanish into the total number on my character sheet

    3e was written from the NPC/world perspective to build a simulation. 5e was written from the PC perspective to serve the needs of an adventuring party exploring dungeons. So what makes sense in the world is the genre and themes that are represented in the campaign. Also, it doesn't cost 50gp, it costs ruby dust. The amount of Continual Flames are limited by the amount of rubies.

    Its easier for me to just think "no pressure so assume they are rested" when the setups dont include natural time pressure. My players see often that theclock moves for NPCs too and by their nature there are often compelling reason to press on. This means that they do rest when they can based on character and circumstance but the short-v-long differences are seen frequently enough to feel...

    Hey all, I stopped paying for hosting as I didn't think people used it. I still have the domain, but took away the actual host. If people are still using it I can rehost it, though it'll take me a bit to set up. I can also make the compiled version available on Github and people can run it from their local machines.

    It would depend on how many casters of that level are expected to be available. Cost would shift to account for profits except maybe from cleric devoted to light deities. Continual would open up longer night periods as well. So, premise is sound depending on some setting considerations. I myself would use it asa status thing, where having Continual would be a sign of wealth or staus. ...

    So I've put up my first homebrew. link I've never really been happy with dragonborn, they've come across incredibly weak. So in that link you can download a homebrew that aims to correct the issue with dragonborn while expanding on them. Its free I just wasn't sure where to share it. Comments and feedback would be fantastic. There is also apparently this cool attachment option here so...

    The only thing nice about a basic flametongue is basically makes GWM -5/+10 obsolete. Items that don't increase attack but increase damage a lot are good to hand out to non GWM users or even to them if the goal is to get them to use the feat less or make the feat less worthwhile.

    Hello So I'm prepping this adventure in a castle where the servants have been prevented by mayhem (why the PCs are called in) to light or replace candles, torches etc, so I was thinking it would be dark. Then I realized - silly me, this castle is owned by a powerful wizard, there should be continual flame spells everywhere. But then I started thinking about it... Continual flame spells are...

    I like that. It leaves room for the possibility of addressing gender and sexuality, while removing the necessity of dealing with it. Those who want to examine gender inequality in their roleplay have the opportunity to do so, and those who want to escape to a world where those inequalities are negligible can do so as well. I might adopt this for Human societies in my own games. Personally, I...

    Ok... your AC is terrible. Your intiative too. Your stealth also. Only his false identity helps and that is a very late ability of the assassin class. So i would really recommend two feats: - Actor which is really good helping you to assume roles - maybe tavern brawler to allow attacking and grappling at the same time. I'd also actually recommend to think about different classes than rogue....
