    Of course the internet provides many great contributions to this thread. For example, someone made a wooden axe (Youtube link).

    D&D General What geographical size is best for campaign settings?

    There is not one answer to this question. One campaign might be a roadtrip, across a continent. The next is a murder mystery that never leaves a mansion. Sometimes the DM needs something to be "far away", and sometimes that's not necessary for the challenges for the PCs. The lure of having a...

    D&D 5E New DM with campaign anxiety

    If something like that happens, there are 2 options: 1. You honestly tell your players you did not expect this, and you need a moment. Everybody go get a drink and a toilet break, because you need 2-5 minutes to figure something out. Then leaf through the Monster Manual, look up a powerful...

    D&D 5E New DM with campaign anxiety

    That's pretty solid. Biggest hurdle I can see is the player that knows all the lore. It's normally the DM that controls the world. So, make sure to either let the player tell the group how Waterdeep works, and keep the entire story arch outside of Waterdeep. Or tell the player that you control...

    D&D 5E Looking for monsters to challenge a party of 6 level 17 characters

    If you can get 4 into a Mini Cooper, and 11 in a Citroen 2CV, surely you can fit 50 into a 30 ft. square room. Not my experience, but everybody has a right to their own opinion. It's a common belief among many DMs that if the PCs don't suffer and get close to a TPK it's not a good fight. Funny...

    D&D 5E Looking for monsters to challenge a party of 6 level 17 characters

    If a Giant Ape is not a challenge to your party anymore, just give them 50 Giant Apes to fight, in a forest environment. Top tip, have the Apes act in little groups of 5, so you can roll their attacks simultaneously (roll 5d20, result: hit miss miss hit miss), then roll all damage at once.

    Making Religion Matter in Fantasy RPGs

    Does it matter that there is a large grey zone between the most divine being (gods) and the mortal nobody in the street? There are archfeys, demon lords and all kinds of weird beings of immense power, and of course the player characters (anywhere from L1 to L20). It makes for a fun game if you...

    D&D 5E Help me with ways to generate income

    The obvious business that comes to mind is casting spells for money. Warlocks can take a short rest and regain spell slots, which adds up on a working day. As a DM, I'd say it is realistic that you have 8 working sessions interrupted by 7 short rests, since you can find rest in your own home...

    WotC Can we salvage Toril?

    Personal opinion: WotC should just update only Faerun to a 2022-proof version, and create a huge cliff hanger where they promise "something new" for the rest of the world of Toril. That has the advantage that: 1. WotC can start raking in all the cash from the update of Faerun 2. The fans can...

    D&D 5E Point buy vs roll

    I have a strong preference for rolling dice, at a table. I prefer unlimited rerolls (once a set is discarded it's gone forever). This tends to inflate the scores, but it does so for all players, so that's ok. The DM can always put a few extra monsters on the map to compensate. If it must be...
