    D&D 5E What do you want out of crafting rules?

    I think the first and most important thing is something that was said earlier. If I am playing a crafter, that should matter. If I am playing an Outlander I can gather food for the party in the wilds. If I am playing a Sage I can find information for the party in the cities. If I am playing...

    D&D 5E Unearthed Arcana: Gothic Lineages & New Race/Culture Distinction

    My apologies, but when I said previously "I don't know how WoTC is planning on handling cultures in the future." I meant that in general. Not just for character creation via choosing your race/lineage. That is why your response of "What WotC said is that they are not planning on culture at all...

    D&D 5E Which content is exclusive to each of the official Eberron books?

    I can confirm Exploring Eberron is AMAZING. But I may be a sucker. And yeah, I don't remember there being much in Wayfinder's that was unique. It might have a different phrasing, or a slightly different bit of lore, but the big beats are the same in both.

    A perfect example. That is amazing.

    No. They said they were not planning on including the cultural pieces alongside the lineages. That is very different.

    D&D 5E Which content is exclusive to each of the official Eberron books?

    I do know that Wayfinder's provided different stats for the different Elves, but Rising did not. I think the Patron stuff is exclusive to Rising. Personally, I think you are fine reading Rising cover to cover, since I am fairly sure it covers more material.

    D&D 5E Everything We Know About The Ravenloft Book

    I mean, sure, the player themselves likely isn't scared for their life, but that doesn't mean I haven't been able to unsettle and worry them, that I haven't been able to make them feel desperate and... scared. I can definitely see this being a style thing, but I'm just saying it happens.

    You can scare players. It takes some work and some investment on the player end, but you can do it. It has happened. But it requires dread, not jump scares.

    D&D 5E Unearthed Arcana: Gothic Lineages & New Race/Culture Distinction

    The only thing missing from what you want in the new design is a proficiency that is based purely in culture. I don't know how WoTC is planning on handling cultures in the future. But, you have the majority of what you want as options already.

    D&D 5E Everything We Know About The Ravenloft Book

    Mmmm, yes and no. In general I've got no issue with fear affects in combat. In fact, in some games I've been in they created decent situations. But, in others, we have had combats where the character's fear prevented them from fighting in the combat. Like, one exmple coming to mind was a long...

    D&D 5E Everything We Know About The Ravenloft Book

    I agree with this. If you have players who can act, then it can work, but when we did our trip to Vecna's realm some of the players were afflicted with despair and it was supposed to be a "secret". DM pulled them into a private chat, ect ect, no idea what exactly had happened to them. Then...

    D&D 5E Unearthed Arcana: Gothic Lineages & New Race/Culture Distinction

    Maybe they will, maybe they won't, but now if a race was designed like an Aasimar was in Volo's you said you would take offense at that, because lineages should have proficiencies. So, you weren't advocating for both options being available, you were making a value judgement that if they don't...

    D&D 5E Unearthed Arcana: Gothic Lineages & New Race/Culture Distinction

    Just like you take issue with the Aasimar, Halflings, Dragonborn, Tieflings, Firbolgs, Tritons, Goblins, Kobolds, and Yuan-Ti who lack any proficiencies at all in a noticeable way? Because none of those races gets proficiencies in anything.

    D&D 5E Everything We Know About The Ravenloft Book

    I do understand that, but I think it is fair to at least say that Ravenloft tries to be horror. Maybe you think it doesn't succeed, but that doesn't mean they weren't trying to a lot of old school horror vibes. Horror is just about as hard as comedy, because one misstep and the entire thing...

    D&D 5E Everything We Know About The Ravenloft Book

    Okay, I am now realizing there is a new feature of the forum where you can't see the quotes of the people who are blocking you. I didn't even realize I was being blocked, but it is the only explanation for this sudden madness where everyone is just speaking into the void and responding to...
