    UA Unearthed Arcana: Spirits Bard and Undeath Warlock

    That isn't how it works. The British are the oppressors, the colonizers. For the record it is also not possible to be racist towards white people.

    UA Unearthed Arcana: Spirits Bard and Undeath Warlock

    I like the theme of the Spirits Bard a lot. I would prefer the tales to be out of combat uses of inspiration. Let it be a 10 minute story resulting in a small party buff based on the roll. The 6th level feature is very weak. Limit it to 3rd level spells or lower and let them cast it 1/day for...

    5E Monk vs Warlock: Checking the Baseline

    And I think that entire discussion is useless. It's a fools' errand. Nothing to be gained by it.

    5E Monk vs Warlock: Checking the Baseline

    You're comparing a full caster using cantrips vs a non-caster and just talking about how much damage they deal over extended periods of time. The comparison is meaningless. Conclusions cannot be drawn from looking at these numbers to see how these classes will actually play and whether they...

    5E Feat changes: requesting feedback

    Any feat house rules that don't remove the -5/+10 are flawed. The easiest way to fix those feats is just to make them half feats. I think a lot of your changes are unneeded complication. The best house rules are simple and elegant.

    5E Why Class X is good (+)

    I understand that there are invocations that go with Eldritch Blast, but I still don't understand why people just assume it is a core class feature. There are other invocations and it is not more powerful than other good cantrips. I don't play Warlocks with Eldritch Blast either. Just not my...

    5E Why Class X is good (+)

    The classes that I like are the ones that fulfill their thematic promise, which is close to all of them. There are just a few subclasses that fall short on this that I won't mention for the sake of the thread. I particularly like the Monk, Warlock, and Druid. Specifically the Land Druid, it...

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    I got it from the internet but you can do it yourself by going here: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/ There is a graph half way down the page with daily case counts. Sources for those counts are provided.

    5E Chef vs Inspiring Leader

    In the recent Unearthed Arcana there is a Chef feat. I once had a character who was a chef and I represented that with the Inspiring Leader feat. Instead of a speech they prepared food which was much better than would be expected when on the road. So how do they stack up against each other...

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    For sure, the pandemic is very much not over and is even more of a concern for people in vulnerable populations. People are also only looking at the death rate and not the very large incidence of permanent damage to lungs, cardiovascular system, brain, etc. I have been going out again. The TTC...

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    That is awful and makes me angry. However, are you sure the infection rate has spiked? There are still only 1550 active cases in Ontario. That is up from a week ago but is that a spike? More importantly there are only 509 active cases in Toronto which is actually down from a week ago. I...

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    I think you're tilting at windmills here.

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    Conflating this with conspiracies and refusing to wear masks as a political point is a bit extreme. I agree with your position about the order. It's just a little far to compare not understanding how state orders work and arguing against the world's doctors after they have had an extensive...

    5E Unearthed Arcana: 16 New Feats

    I think my dream of having one of the 5th level Invocations is dead in the water. I don't disagree with people about barring higher level class functions from feats. I just think 5th level is where the Invocations start to get really fun. As is we basically have either cast a select 1st level...
