    D&D General What do you think of mega-dungeons for online D&D play?

    I am currently running Dungeon of the Mad Mage on Roll20 and my players and I are loving it. I would NEVER run this particular adventure in any other way besides VTT. I highly recommend the Dungeon of the Mad Mage Companion from DMsGuild - it goes a long way towards providing an actual...

    D&D General Survivor 5E - Tasha's Subclases

    Is the Wild Magic Barbarian hated because people are annoyed by it conceptually? Because I've got a player using it and, at least in Tier 1, it's really powerful.

    D&D General Seeking DM Advice: Managing Extroverted Players

    I am concerned that I am the type of player who sometimes hogs more than my share of playing time by trying a lot of stuff in-game or wanting to talk to NPCs. I would be totally fine if the DM or another player called me on it. I also do (in character) try to involve the other characters and...

    D&D General Using dreams to plant adventure hooks or provide motivation

    Like many things, I think they can be extremely effective when used sparingly or with restraint. When used too often they will obviously lose their impact. The "every long rest" suggested in Curse of Strahd certainly seems excessive. There are references to dreams being used narratively in the...

    I totally confused them - thank you!

    D&D General Adam Bradford, Lauren Urban, Todd Kenrick Leave D&D Beyond

    Yeah, I'm not sure why anybody thinks this has anything in particular to do with WotC or 6E. It has to do with Fandom and DNDBeyond.

    Fandom’s stock is in the toilet right now. It’s been quite a year.

    D&D 1E U1 Secret of Saltmarsh: Thoughts?

    One thing that I saw as a potential issue upon reading - and I was correct upon running - is that the adventure makes no allowances for the party not attacking the lizardfolk on the smuggler's ship on sight. Even though the adventure states that the lizardfolk will mistake the party for...

    D&D 5E Sanitizing Curse of Strahd (+)

    I think it’s reasonable to interpret Izek’s “unwholesome” fixation with his sister as being incestuous. At least, I don’t think the reader is like coming from way out in left field with that interpretation. But “Kasimir’s goal is to use his sister to breed back the Dusk Elves” honestly never...

    D&D 5E Sanitizing Curse of Strahd (+)

    I was thinking the same thing! The book doesn’t say this AT ALL. He wants to bring her back because he feels guilty for his role in her death and he wants to save her from damnation as Strahd’s concubine. There is NOTHING in there about he or anybody else wanting to use her to breed back the...

    D&D 5E Sanitizing Curse of Strahd (+)

    PLENTY of people run CoS like this. The thing is, the players need never know their victory isn't final. Strahd's return is only written into the story because "canonically" WotC still wants him to be there (they may have future plans for the character). But for your purposes and the purposes...

    D&D 5E Sanitizing Curse of Strahd (+)

    You stated that you didn’t need to change the adventure because your players are “mature adults, so...” directly implying that OP’s players were not. You stated that the Vistani might need to be changed if the players have “sensitivity problems.” Which implies that the “problem” is on the part...
