    D&D 5E New Year speculation thread!

    Perhaps a redux of the Doomvault that's actually playable as an inclusion in an adventure?

    D&D 5E New Year speculation thread!

    A new generation experiences Kender.

    D&D 5E New Year speculation thread!

    I predict a profitable year for Wizards of the Coast, they will public a splatbook and two adventure books, as well as one major release. I'm keeping it tame.

    D&D General DM Authority

    One might say it requires the mixing of black and white to form a grey sort of agreement, not pouring one color over the other to cover it entirely.

    D&D General DM Authority

    This is in no way a productive example. How does this relate to the underlying discussion of authority aside from the DM abusing his to be sort of a cunt? I agree completely with the consensus and implied use of the circumstance, but it's only tangentially related to the in-game role of a DM...

    D&D General DM Authority

    Well sure, but the DM still narrates the resulting outcome, therefore implying some authority over the fiction and the manner in which the rules affect it.

    D&D General Miniatures shouldn't be edition-dependent (a Fire Giant size rant)

    The fact that I can so easily envision people flinging fire over the issue is somewhat frightening.

    D&D General Miniatures shouldn't be edition-dependent (a Fire Giant size rant)

    I see a 500 page thread on what Godzilla's stats are in the future.

    D&D General DM Authority

    This is a thread about DM authority, which must, by necessity, be exercised in the case of unruly players. I see no reason why @Oofta's examples contravene... well, anything at all. If this were an argument of player agency in the story, we'd be discussing hypothetical, tyrant DMs.

    D&D General DM Authority

    This is a bit tangential to the issue, but how do my fellow ENWorlders handle NPCs authored in by players? I've found that player retention over family and "friend" NPCs can be useful for relieving DM strain, but quickly becomes unfeasible if said NPC supposedly has access to goods or...

    D&D General DM Authority

    I don't understand how Chaosmancer can assert that groups can handle rules debates without a DM as final arbiter. I understand the thesis of group consensus, but there needs to be a referee, after all. And, as @Maxperson said, these rules questions are exceedingly common, and, at the table...

    D&D General DM Authority

    Not really on topic in terms of the thread, or your call to make, to be fair. It just comes across as exclusionary and dismissive, in my view. Because, you're trying to negate their arguments through the use of this tack.

    D&D 5E What is the appeal of the weird fantasy races?

    We don't have pull-up rules, Mr. Rules-as-written.
