    Level Up [+] What features should a "Advanced 5E" have?

    Late to the party here, but I want more granularity in skills. Either a subskill system using the existing list of skills, or a longer list of skills - say, half again as many skills. Similarly, I want more granularity in languages. More languages, sub-languages, ancient vs modern, etc. I...

    Check Out This Conan Character Sheet (Pad)

    Looking again at the sheet, is it common in the game for characters to have only two weapons? Is that a setting-thematic thing the system enforces?

    An Official Hellboy RPG Is Coming!

    Well, you can't really blame them for bolting an IP onto the most popular tabletop role-playing game, that one of their subsidiaries conveniently publishes. ;) And who knows, maybe one or more of the new features in this game will become wildly popular and make its way into 5E/6E/whatever.

    General Do you care how about "PC balance"?

    This exactly. I worry about it as a DM, i.e. in my players interests, but not when I'm a player myself. As a player, I try to make a character who fills a niche no one else is filling and that is also something I've either never played and am excited to try or know how to play really well...

    An Official Hellboy RPG Is Coming!

    I dig me some Hellboy, but mostly this excites me because of the new bits and pieces I can pick from it for use in more standard-fantasy 5E games. If this becomes available as D&D Beyond content, I will probably buy it there, for my players.

    Check Out This Conan Character Sheet (Pad)

    For a character sheet with a lot of detailed design/art, it is remarkably uncluttered. I'm impressed.

    Which Non-D&D TSR Game Would You Like to See WotC Revive?

    I seem to be in a minority: I picked my favorite Star Wars rpg, Top Secret, Marvel, and Buck Rogers!

    6E (+) New Edition Changes for Inclusivity (discuss possibilities)

    Detaching proficiencies from race would near the top of my list of relatively quick-and-easy changes. The term "subrace" always seems way too close to the term "sub-human" to me, but regardless if we aren't using "race" then I'd say definitely lose "subrace" as well. It gets pretty far from...

    5E Would you be happy with fixed damage?

    I'd be fine with this, assuming a critical success still did more damage.

    Upcoming Arthurian Movie The Green Knight Has An RPG

    Huh. I don't know, "SIR gaWAIN and the GREEN knight" rolls off my tongue perfectly fine, and that's how I've been mispronouncing it my whole life! ;)

    5E Making a 5E Variant I *Want* To Play (+thread)

    FWIW, these are definitely not true for me. I'm very visually-oriented, so I first have to consciously convert the pips to numbers, and then add the numbers. I don't instantly see the numbers, and it is definitely not faster than an eye-blink. I'm not alone in this, either. Looking at 2 dice...

    5E Making a 5E Variant I *Want* To Play (+thread)

    #1 I'm not a fan of penalizing characters/players, especially when they already aren't great at something, but I think overall the positive effects of this might outweigh the negatives. #4 I think every class should get something cool at every level, other than just more hit points. Since...

    WotC Dungeons & Dragons Fans Seek Removal of Oriental Adventures From Online Marketplace

    Using material from less well-known, less popularized eras and subcultures of these regions would be a good way to get away from the stereotypes. On a semi-side note: please, lord, give me the material for running a campaign based on one of those enormous Chinese sailing ships!

    General D&D Settings with No Problematic Areas?

    As a class in D&D, clerics don't needs gods. Ancestor reverence, animism, and other spiritual forces could be used as the source/explanation of a cleric's power. And monks definitely don't need gods or religious sects.

    5E D&D Beyond Player Tools app is now live!

    I've been running a 5E game over at Roll20 for 3+ months now, and D&D Beyond has become even more useful than before: I can have every players full character sheet open in its own tab, a tab on the home page for doing searches, and a tab for their encounter builder, to run encounters I've...
