    D&D 5E Compilation of Alternate Ability Score Generation Methods

    I see... Anyway, if you want to ignore bedir, that's up to you, but I think in this case I will repeat what they were saying because it's pretty good: essentially, they were mentioning the Redrick Roller Redrick Roller This is a system that rolls stats that are point-buy legal. I've used...

    D&D 5E Was the Rune Knight (in Tasha's) "over-nerfed"?

    you could use it vs a monster that has a crazy high AC, is protected by spells etc, to "bounce" a very damaging attack from a PC to a minion to said monster. It's best to redirect the attack of foes, but redirecting attacks from allies could be useful in some cases...

    D&D 5E Was the Rune Knight (in Tasha's) "over-nerfed"?

    That same adventure I ran also had a twilight cleric PC. HOLY CRAP they are strong. The temp HP is just... too much. I would not allow a twilight cleric in my game.

    D&D 5E Compilation of Alternate Ability Score Generation Methods

    this is odd, I was replying to bedir and even quoted his post - can't you not see it? The reference to Redrick Roller?

    D&D 5E Compilation of Alternate Ability Score Generation Methods

    it really is good - you get the thrill of rolling (a bit) but everyone has roughly the same - no duds, no super-heroes.

    D&D General Expanding a 3-player campaign to a 6-player with 3 newbies

    consider scheduling. The 3 new players have to be able to work with the existing game's schedule. That is step one IMO.

    D&D 5E Was the Rune Knight (in Tasha's) "over-nerfed"?

    Someone liked my post, so I will necro this tread with an important comment: I got this late spring to run a game with a level 6 rune knight in it. The player was only able to make 2 sessions, but those 2 sessions convinced me that the RK is really strong. I was thinking too much about the...

    D&D 5E Why do people think elven accuracy is so great?

    It is a frequent flaw in these analysis that opportunity cost is not considered. GWM's damage bonus is only about 2-4 per attack in reality, for example.

    D&D General The Role and Purpose of Evil Gods

    ... I mean, there are celestials so... yes, the argument could be flipped on its head.

    D&D 5E What should this magic item's rarity be?

    The effects last up to 8 hours, but then reverts. Let's say the potion has given you a huge nose and blue skin to imitate a particular fiend. If the changes then reverts, it means that the effect is magical, as your nose won't spontaneously "ungrow" back to its normal shape.

    I see - and again, thank you for this analsysis!

    D&D 5E Reverse Engineering the Real Rules of Attunement

    Yes it is, but there are other example in the DMG: the driftglobe, or the minor item property table on page 143; there may be others

    D&D 5E Feats removed from the PHB, for the last Playtest !

    I would prefer it if you didn't pretend that your opinion (which may be correct!) is settled fact. Thank you.

    D&D 5E Reverse Engineering the Real Rules of Attunement

    I knew there were some kind of rules, but thank you so much for doing all the digging and pulling it together. I 100% agree with you that the rules are not 100% consistent, but that's ok - in French, we say that a rule isn't a rule unless there are exceptions to it :) Are you sure about the...
