    5E Wendy’s sponsoring Critical Role?

    FWIW, I run a small business and I absolutely vet my sponsors. I'd be silly not to. This doesn't require a "deep dive" either. When considering a sponsor or partnership, I google "(Name of thing) controversy". Doing that with Wendy's tells you the whole deal in seconds. And my small business...

    5E Wendy’s sponsoring Critical Role?

    What went wrong here was a lack of due diligence. My initial reaction when they first announced the gig was surprise and mild disappointment. Two minutes of googling on their part would have turned up enough red flags to make them second guess the deal, and they did drop the ball there. The...

    What monsters in 5e overshoot or undershoot their CR?

    If a DM takes full advantage of the goblins' (CR 1/4) ability to Disengage or Hide as a bonus action, then 4 of them are a VERY tough encounter for 4 level 1 characters, and are likely to be able to down 1 or 2 adventurers even if the party goes in at full strength. Since action economy is king...

    Essentials Kit D&D Beyond Adventures?

    You can't download them as PDFs. You can download them to the DNDBEYOND mobile app so you can access them offline. But the intent of DNDBEYOND adventures is pretty clearly that you would indeed run them on a browser by having a laptop at the table.

    5E Anyone else feeling "meh" about recent 5e releases?

    Mordenkainen's - as a DM I have actually gotten a lot of use out of the monsters, so it's been worth it for that alone for me Dragon Heist - was quite interested; it's an ambitious product that imo doesn't quite succeed at what it's trying to be. If somebody called it a disappointment I...

    5E Greg Tito Gives First Look at Eberron: Rising from the Last War

    I like the group patron idea a lot. Kind of like the fixer in Shadowrun. I really like the trend of including short adventures in the sourcebooks. The DMG should have had one TBH.
