    D&D 5E 9 Things "Pro" DMs Do That You shouldn't

    I'd say I agree most of these. I normally just drop in a replacement and then we don't talk about it, much easier than waiting for the best moment. I have planned and run a 3 hour combat though, it worked really well. Admittedly I didn't plan for the combat to be all session, but I knew it...

    D&D 5E All character races are Medium-sized...why?

    I think it would be better to just not worry about the extra space a large creatures aura creates.

    D&D 5E All character races are Medium-sized...why?

    I don't think the aura thing is enough of a reason not to include large PCs, but it is the reason we're given. Additionally, once they get weapons sized for them, they'd be dealing twice the base weapon damage as a medium PC (assuming the damage increase for weapons for larger creatures holds...

    D&D 5E Half races as sub-races? (+)

    I did something like this for planetouched races which could be chosen in place of subrace for any race so that a dwarf could be "azer-blooded" by selecting the fire soul subrace. I adjusted humans as well so that they could take these bloodlines and then removed the standard planetouched races.

    D&D 5E Speculation thread! Vecna? Giants UA?

    I tried linking things together, but just ended up with Kevin Bacon.

    D&D 5E New Unearthed Arcana Today: Giant Themed Class Options and Feats

    With it being a world of dragons, I'd expect epic architecture and kingdoms of dragonborn, kobolds, and other scalykind led by dragons, though I might just be thinking of my setting which has a similar theme of dragons vs giants vs elementals.

    D&D 5E New Unearthed Arcana Today: Giant Themed Class Options and Feats

    It's only a couple of feats. If it was 3 or 4 then maybe that would be bad, but a single feat needing one other feat isn't much of a feat chain.

    D&D 5E New Unearthed Arcana Today: Giant Themed Class Options and Feats

    Had a quick look through, I'm fine with some feats requiring a minimum level. I'd change the Druid's history bonus to straight up expertise rather than a 1d4 roll, I think that extra die roll is unnecessary since we already have a system for better skill use. One thing I didn't realise is that...

    5.5E Elf as a class

    The alfheim becmi book brought in the elf wizard which was a specialisation for the elf where they could continue to boost their magical abilities at the expense of their warrior abilities. You could add this as a specialisation option at level 11 so that they choose to gain more fighter options...

    D&D 5E Gravetouched with multiple damage types

    I'd either rule that the base damage (piercing) is converted or do what BookTenTiger mentioned and make it all the damage, letting you roll an addition die of the highest one available.

    Do you have a favourite dinosaur?

    I always wanted these books as a kid. I guess now that I'm an adult I can go out and buy them. I wonder if they're still around.

    Do you have a favourite dinosaur?

    A cartoon from the 80s, that means that the cartoon was created to sell the toys. I think it only had something like 12 episodes, I loved it back in the day and had some of the toys along with the small comic books that toys often came with back then (I'm thinking mostly these guys and masters...

    Do you have a favourite dinosaur?

    Oh man, thinking about it, I need to get to Auckland museum while they still have the T-Rex skeleton there!
