Keep Your Powder Dry! Part 3: Industrial Firepower [5E]
  • Licensed Role-Playing Games: Threat Or Menace?

    Let's just get the controversial statement out of the way: I'm not a fan of licensed settings in role-playing games. Today's column is rolling out of a Skype conversation that I had with a friend the other day. There's a lot of cool RPGs out there that are based upon cool movies, comic books, novels and cartoons. None of them are bad, and I'm not...

    ESPN Calls Role-playing "Bad Fantasy"

    The parallels between fantasy sports and fantasy role-playing games have long been noted by both geeks and jocks (mostly geeks).

      Can I post questions here? Under Double-Action weapon property, it states that creatures with Extra Attack or Multiattack do not suffer disadvantage on the second attack. Is that because they may use their Extra Attack to get off the second attack with no disadvantage? Or can they attack twice with it as an action, no disadvantage on the second attack, then attack twice again using their Extra Attack and still get no disadvantage on the second (now fourth) attack?

      The intent is that characters with Extra Attack get a second attack anyway, meaning that the Double-Action property doesn't do anything for them. They can Extra Attack as normal. The Double-Action property is mainly a boon to characters who don't "naturally" get an Extra Attack.

      Excellent, that's what I had assumed, but I wanted to clarify. I have a fighter in my group that uses guns and I know the question will come up once I introduce this weapon property. Thanks!
