    D&D 5E Magic item attunement, like-dislike?

    Attunment is bad and breaks one of the goals of the game. By becoming unattuned on death, you will now have to recalculate in the middle of battle all your figured stats. While not an issue at low level, at high level with in-combat raising this is more than a bit of a problem. On top of that...

    D&D 5E I don't actually get the opposition for the warlord... or rather the opposition to the concept.

    You know we're talking about 5E, right? No one gets to play anything they want at 1st level, the apprentice levels are not "the class you want to play." Again, you know this is 5E right? The WIZARD is just as good of a swordsman as both your strategist or the fighter. Why is he casting...

    D&D 5E Average damage or rolled damage?

    Static damage is very artificial. It's like in movies where the hero always kills with 1 bullet but the hero can never die because he knows how many bullets he can take. The damage range is a much better method, now the hero can graze an enemy, or *gasp* the hero can die! Pretty unappealing...

    D&D 5E I don't actually get the opposition for the warlord... or rather the opposition to the concept.

    High level fighters already regenerate like trolls and low level they can lay on hands themselves. So you already have limited cheerlord non-magical obviously magical healing. Battlemaster has a lot of the lazylord stuff already letting you give rogues another sneak attack every round. What...

    D&D 5E I just don't see why they even bothered with the Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide.

    They said we wouldn't be getting splat books... so they gave us a splat book.

    Here Come The PRESTIGE CLASSES! Plus Rune Magic!

    I will continue to follow the homebrews on reddit and ignore the garbage WotC is spewing in the UA column. Blargh.

    D&D 5E 5e's new gender policy - is it attracting new players?

    If explicitly saying water is wet rather than just not mentioning it somehow attracts people, I'd feel sad. Also, that type of person is not one I'd want to play with as their focus in life is on what is between their legs rather than on things that matter, like getting that orc dead before it...

    D&D 5E Who wrote these CRs?

    The Solar is significantly more powerful than other creatures of the same CR. That fact alone tells you how much the CR system is worth, creatures of the same CR are nowhere near the same power. It's been very well established low level the encounter system is probably overtuned and you can...

    D&D 5E Sage Advice August 17th

    Same. While light years ahead of what Mike has posted in his twitter, still bad enough that after religiously following errata and rulings in all previous editions, I'm going to just stop now and ignore it. I can't be bothered to look at the Unearthed Arcana either with it's obviously never...

    D&D 5E Imposing dis-advantage on saves

    Unfortunately they're rather liberal with things that flat out screw over casters. Giving resistance to most fiends is just one example. Your best bet is to just stick with 3E as it has far far far more options for players than 5E will ever have and it is far easier to modify too. Not even...

    Check Out This Sneak Peek At OUT OF THE ABYSS

    She is a bit different in the 2003 Temple of Elemental Evil, but the same in Dungeons and Dragons Online (Temple of Elemental Evil expansion)

    D&D 5E Rage of Demons more details.

    The Drow Elite Warrior is a level 11 fighter... At houses that all have siege engines, mages to make them magical and arsenals of magic items stockpiled over hundreds or thousands of years. You're reaching more than Mr. Fantastic on this. If the houses are equipping all their elite...

    D&D 5E Rage of Demons more details.

    Several hundred level 10+ fighters will drop him in a round from range. If he has stats, he will die instantly. If he doesn't have stats, he's powerful enough to flatten the city in seconds as I said. This simply does not work.

    D&D 5E Rage of Demons more details.

    So he's dead is what you're saying. He is either god level power and flattens the place, or he gets smoked by dozens of arch mages, high priestesses and blade masters in seconds flat. Godzilla can't spend weeks stomping on Tokyo waiting for adventurers to deal with other problems. This...

    D&D 5E Game of Thrones-style Resurrection *spoilers*

    OMG, 5E has the resurrection spell?!? Some of us haven't gotten to that part of the PHB yet, you need to spoiler that stuff!!! If you're going to make rez more like ASoIaF then are you going to make Animate Dead also allow you to instantly raise an entire battlefield? Oh man is the kingdom...
