    And the discussion for the last 55 pages was why that may or may not be the best of ideas, so thanks for sharing I guess...? You are very welcome! My players and I enjoy it and honestly nobody has ever mentioned how using elements of real world cultures, aka the concepts of shaman/witch doctors in primitive societies, is making them into a racist statement on any real world culture. I can't say I base gaming decisions on anything other than what my table will find enjoyable. Trying to redefine D&D monsters though a lense of social and racial justice has never been a drive of ours as we have never tried to use them as a stand in for anything other than foes to be overcome. They need some kind of basic culture to use when making descriptions so unless writers come up with something truly alien they end up using elements of real world cultures. We don't look at orcs as stand in for whatever group you want to say they are a stand in for, they are just orcs. Obviously other feel differently and that'...

    But if I dump Str I can't use longswords or most simple weapons effectively until Level 12 when I can craft the Ogre Gauntlets... Why does dumping STR prevent you from using longswords?

    I tried making a High Elf Artillerist gish build focused around using the Force Ballista for shortsword Booming Blade cheese and then using a longbow when the turret is down or when I want to double down on ranged spam. Stat spreads I made were: - 11 14 14 16 10 10 - 8 16 14 16 10 10 - 10 16 14 16 10 8 Is 14 Dex really enough? It maxes out the medium armor bonus, but for a build that relies on my weapons I'm a little worried. But if I pump Dex to 16 I have to dump something and i don't want to dump Wis so its either Str or Cha. But if I dump Str I can't use longswords or most simple weapons effectively until Level 12 when I can craft the Ogre Gauntlets... Well, the Artillerist needs more Dex, and Strength is of negligable use: the Alchemist is more suited for a front line Gish, needing no Dex for AC for range attacks.

    Given the Monk's niche of single target lockdown, maybe reach weapons are OP? How, though? Also, they could easily have restricted Stunning Strike to unarmed attacks. Because polearms don't operate like Soul Calibur think more pikeman formation. IRL, they do both. Polearms weren’t just used in formations. They were also used by duelists, by people wanting to unseat cavalry, and by Kung fu and other martial arts traditions. In game dex based heavy weapons are a monumentally bad idea. Dex is already OP the only thing keeping it in check is better/OP strength based feats at least for melee (dex has OP ranged feats). Dex based PAM+GW+ ability to be good with a bow as well and take sharpshooter is a bit much. Monks can already do most of that. Polearm master works with a spear. They could easily have included a polearm that lacks the Heavy property, making the PAM+GWM combo not fully functional with it. Nearly all of the arbitrary weapon restrictions in 5e are for "thematic" reasons, not mecha...

    Fourth to last episode would be October 9. Crawford in July said that they were treating the D&D settings as one big universe. There was a whole thread about it: Are they going back on that? More likely they are being agnostic on it. It's connected, it's not connected, whatever floats your boat.
