    5E The "everyone at full fighting ability at 1 hp" conundrum

    No, I don't think so. That post was about the popularity of HP, not D&D. Though I do see the two are very intertwined. But simple HP persists from game to game, even lots and lots of electronic games use simple HP.

    5E The "everyone at full fighting ability at 1 hp" conundrum

    Naw, it isn’t just that. Hit points are a good mechanic.

    What would you bring from PF2e to your 5e game?

    Oh and at tier 1 and 2 throw in a handful of goblins, nimble action can break things up. At higher levels an occasional monster has it, SURPRISE!

    What would you bring from PF2e to your 5e game?

    It depends. Sometimes monsters have better things to do with their reactions. And sometimes the fighter or monk provokes one so it's used up and everyone scatters. I've had players with features that depend on the monster taking one, then they're reaction is gone. I've had players take the...

    If a PC had his brain "eaten" by an Intellect Devourer and then goes into an antimagic field...?

    Maybe? Whatever you decide don't tell the player. He'll have to discover it.

    If a PC had his brain "eaten" by an Intellect Devourer and then goes into an antimagic field...?

    What if, after so long pretending to be him, the ID begins to actually THINK it is him? What if that would eventually allow the devoured intellect to reassert control? Then he could be both?

    If a PC had his brain "eaten" by an Intellect Devourer and then goes into an antimagic field...?

    I don't think it's magic. Isn't the field pretty precise in what it works on? Anyway I had a player lose their brain to an ID when he wen't off on his own. The surprise on the players face when he ganked the guy he was following and the ID dragged itself out of that guys head. Wow! He wanted to...

    5E The "everyone at full fighting ability at 1 hp" conundrum

    5e does offer a way to impose a sense of fatigue on hp loss. It'll be handwaving by the GM but it won't break things. As DM you can decide when a PC gets disadvantage. So you could do so if they are down what you think are a significant number of HP or after a big hit. No book keeping really...

    Let Me Tell You About My Character...

    Market. It’s the first word he ever heard in common. A half orc fighter sold into the arena circuit to fight and die as cannon fodder. He won his first fight to everyone’s surprise, and the next, then the next and the next eventually earning his freedom. He’s on a quest to find and rescue his...

    Is the sleep spell d&d 5e too powerful

    Well it is what I like about 5e. I don’t think a saving throw breaks the game. As long as your having fun, though I might consider doing away with the hp roll

    It started as the playtest campaign for 3e. It was released for one of the 3s. 3.5 I think. It came from him after he left wizards
