    5E Balance at high levels - and a possible house rule

    So many variables: DM experience, player experience, group structure, encounters per day, ... In my - now over 30 years - experience of AD&D, D&D and Pathfinder, all the above variables are still overuled by one important thing: The party usually works together, not against each other. Sure, on...

    5E Impact of size on Monk's Stunning Blow ability

    It's a fantasy game, so is the "pressure point" stuff... (I've experienced that myself in sparring, with some kind of black belt - it was ridiculous!) This size limit does NOT make sense and limits the monk's ability too much.

    Tools & Apps for online RPG conferencing

    Thanks to you guys! Last weekend we tried roll20 - and good that we tested one evening before the actual session... roll20 looks good, I like the options, being used to CAD programs it wasn't hard for me to learn the basic stuff to run the VTT for my player. But the communication didn't work, so...

    Tools & Apps for online RPG conferencing

    Hello, in times of the Plague when "social distancing" is required, we still want to play D&D / Pathfinder. So let's try it online... but how? Any good apps & tools & whatever to play online with about 5 players (with hopefully good enough internet speed)? Should be compatible on several OS /...

    5E Poll: What D&D setting do you want to have an official 5E book?

    Rokugan, Greyhawk, Dark Sun Remember the 3e Oriental? Great book, content & artwork close to perfect.

    5E Eberron Is Here Today!

    Many things to look up! First thing I was looking for was a description of "lightning rail", then other stuff and places. Would have been nice.

    5E Eberron Is Here Today!

    I gave this book to my son as a christmas present. We both played DDO, so we knew a little about Eberron, guilds, dragonmarks, dragonshards, warforged, that's it. We never had any Eberron book / material. So our "verdict": it's good, we like it! Many race options, plus a seemingly (not yet...

    5E Tell me about your Adventures in Middle-Earth experiences, please

    We quit after a few sessions, missing a little the typical D&D magic level. The rules and books are nicely done, capturing the Tolkien feel, mostly balanced, only the slayer (=barbarian) class is a little OP in a world with mostly weapon damage. Playing some classes really require to be mainly...

    5E Martial arts for other classes

    That is the common misconception. Just because you're strong means you're just hitting somewhere? That would mean: Strength + Dex on damage! + Dex on attack roll, fine. But not on damage. The example you mention is a good example for kind-a special finesse / precision damage, like sneak attack...

    5E Martial arts for other classes

    "Martial Arts", hmmm, let me spoil your party (and be the smartass). Using weapons is "Martial Arts", and far more effective than unarmed strikes. Believe me, I tried it (only in training!). Gimme a good kitchen knife and I could probably kill a real world karate champion. Anyway...

    5E House rule for Victorian era aesthetic - no armor

    Too complex - no. "kludge" - yes. Why not keep it as is? In a world with guns dexterity becomes even more important. This - basically keep it as is:

    TSR The Making and Breaking of Deities & Demigods

    Thanks for the (hi)story! And even more for these great books. Legends & Lore was by far my favourite AD&D book. Still sad that I cannot find it anymore, got to ask my old D&D friends....

    5E Kids playing dnd?

    I started playing Pathfinder (full core rules) with my kids when they were 11 (son) / 8 (daughter), with 2 friends of them the same age. The big boys really gripped it fast, but they are both rather talented in the math & logic division. We switched to 5e about 4 years ago, I really prefer 5e -...
