    5E Would you be happy with fixed damage?

    I'm in a campaign which is now running high level and the DM has switched to max damage for enemies to ramp up the challenge. It certainly keeps us on our toes!

    5E Would you be happy with fixed damage?

    Fair response, and I guess what I wanted to see out of the thread. Personally I don't get an innate sense of fun from rolling damage, but I know some do, so it's good to see varying perspectives.

    5E Fighters should be the social class

    I think driving it for me is that one of the things I always wanted to represent was the kind of different social strata in a game and how different characters may be better at working within those groups. If you have someone born and raised on the street, they're more likely to have...

    5E Would you be happy with fixed damage?

    Because I want to see what other people's opinions are? Am I not allowed to talk to people here unless I'm trying to solve a problem?

    5E Fighters should be the social class

    I'm quoting the fluff directly on this: "....these surface components barely hint at the expertise attained after years of apprenticeship and countless hours of study" Most older versions of d&d are similar, suggesting that wizards should be older in general or that they have to dedicate...

    5E Fighters should be the social class

    Yes, I've thought a lot about it, even making a speculative shot at skills per social group. I think ultimately I would just adjust the DC as a GM. Perhaps the bookish wizard might need an 18 to get a favour out of a local militia captain, but the fighter might only need a 12, for example.

    5E Fighters should be the social class

    I think that's were my idea came from it. That in old school d&d, fighters were the ones that became lords and raised a small army. It's been interesting to see how many different views peoppe possess of what the fighter is to them, which I think speaks well to your comment on a lack of identity.

    5E Would you be happy with fixed damage?

    Dungeon World effectively does the above, where you roll your class based damage die. There are a couple of modifiers, mostly not generic being a narratively focused system, but no reason it wouldn't work otherwise. I really like it, but it's a different feel from typical D&D and I think all...

    That's interesting allowing the choice to roll. I like it.

    The only way I've found to get rid of players like that is the play a rules lite campaign. Nothing bores a min/maxer quicker!

    5E Racial Min/Maxes on Ability Scores?

    I like that arrangement too. But I'm a heathen who would prefer that scores be dropped and modifiers only used! Either way, I think a lower cap would have some positive effects on the game.

    5E Would you be happy with fixed damage?

    As a DM I use fixed Attack Ratings and fixed damage (Player rolls a defense roll and roll their own damage) - but that's because I can focus more on monster tactics rather than number administration. Currently as a monk in a 5e campaign, I roll a lot of dice. Especially when I use combat...

    5E Would you be happy with fixed damage?

    Thanks to everyone who responded. It's always interesting to me to see peoples view on different aspects of the game. I am in the camp that doesn't mind either way (I guess I'm a bit of a dirty story gamer!), but I know people do, so I like to hear their perspectives.

    Wasn't funny. Sorry

    Never said I was trying to fix it. Please don't put words in my mouth.
