    5E Weirdest House Rules You've Encountered in the Wild

    Odd house rules: When you went down a level (in a dungeon) you automatically went up a level (in character). Which isn't the odd part. The odd part is that the reverse was also true.

    5E Weirdest House Rules You've Encountered in the Wild

    "I'm not sure how this is a house rule... can you elaborate?" As I recall, In first and second edition, a backstab (that's what it was called) only worked when you actually attacked an opponent from behind who was completely unaware of your presence. So doing it multiple times in a combat was...

    5E What are some cool/neat standard PHB wizard spells?

    "Have a recurring fire Res/immune villian. " An excellent idea. Though they would have to be immune, Elemental Adept would bypass resistance.

    5E A First Look at Tasha’s Lineage System In AL Player’s Guide - Customizing Your Origin In D&D

    Thank you WayoftheFourElements, I had not seen that part. I would have been happier if the ASI had been "+2/+1 in the recommended stats, or +1 in any two stats of your choice." I think maintaining the "flavour" of the different fantasy races through stat differentiation is a greater plus than...

    5E A First Look at Tasha’s Lineage System In AL Player’s Guide - Customizing Your Origin In D&D

    5E You Can Now Get Minis For The D&D Combat Wheelchair

    If these exist in a fantasy world, even at that higher price - which is still trivial past the first level or two - I would imagine every adventurer would want one regardless of their physical characteristics. Seems as indispensable a personal magic item as the ubiquitous Bag of Holding. Another...

    5E You Can Now Get Minis For The D&D Combat Wheelchair

    I love the wheelchairs and will definitely buy the minis. They will fit great in one of my two campaign; they are utterly inappropriate for the other. The Twitter discourse on these is astonishingly toxic, both from the people opposing the idea and from the people supporting it. Please let's...

    5E Optimization and the +1 Weapon Principle

    "If fun, it is good. " Oh sure, but that fails to take into account the difference between whether something is mildly fun over a long period, or intensely fun right at the start of the evening. Clearly, we need to factor Nova Fun versus the FPH (Fun Per Hour) rating.

    A policy that has led to a happy and productive internet life has been to disregard any statement that begins with "Actually".
