    5E Rewriting Favored Enemy/Favored Foe

    I'm not really following what peoples' beef with the new Favored Foe is. Honestly I think it's kind of perfect. It gives them an out from having to rely so much on Hunter's Mark without making Hunter's Mark totally useless while also removing dependencies on DM and campaign styles. With that...

    5E Races with floating bonuses: Designing from scratch

    This was by far the weakest part of Tasha's. I expected some neat new rules, not a generic "bonuses can float" which I didn't need a rulebook to tell me I could do, and probably still won't allow all that generously. The truth is I don't like how little distinction there is between small and...

    5E Ideas for Initiative house rules

    Conceptually, I agree with this, which is why I keep Initiative with Dex. There's an argument for Wisdom, but as mentioned above that's partially filled by surprise rounds. If you want it to be with Int, I'm a fan of retheming it away from Initiative and toward something like Tactics. My...

    5E Ideas for Initiative house rules

    It does make sense actually but the label "Initiative" doesn't. I think it makes a lot more sense if you do a simple re-fluffing of Initiative into something like Tactics.

    5E Planescape to languish in purgatory?

    Don't be pedantic - it doesn't speak well for you.

    5E Planescape to languish in purgatory?

    No, what's actually odd is to dismiss everything in my post, restate a simple preference with no deeper analysis, then act like I'm the one who's socially awkward. Back on topic - there are practical benefits to updating older campaign settings from time to time for large numbers of players...

    5E Planescape to languish in purgatory?

    No, in fact, the discussion is an attempt at being academic about the topic - not just simply stating one's preferences. That's how conversation is supposed to work.

    5E Ideas for Initiative house rules

    A lot of people seem to favor moving Initiative from Dex to Wis or Int. I prefer keeping it with Dex. Why? Because Wis is already factored into combat preparedness through Perception and surprise rounds. When DMs actually use it, it can become as or even more significant than Initiative. I tend...

    5E Old Vexed Question: All too Important Dexterity Stat and Finesse Weapons, namely the Rapier

    Sorry for necroing an old thread, but I feel this is still a worthy discussion to hold. IMO, the best solution to Rapiers, and finesse weapons more generally, is to to make slightly more liberal use of Piercing rules/resistance/disadvantage. Piercing weapons are relatively clunky and...

    5E Ranger Rating Thread

    That's.... as it should be, because Hunter's Mark is a spell. This feature is a win-win-win in that it beefed up Rangers at 1st level while also making Hunter's Mark less necessary for all Ranger builds but also not making it useless. Rangers now have a non-magicky way to increase their damage...

    5E Planescape to languish in purgatory?

    Maybe a little, but I mostly think it's just that people genuinely enjoy the settings and like seeing them get updated.

    5E Planescape to languish in purgatory?

    Okay, but WotC is not designing for you specifically.

    5E Planescape to languish in purgatory?

    That's a massive false equivalence. For one, TV and moves are passive entertainment, so there's not really a huge driver to update them outside of making more money. For two, you could equate seasons of a single TV show to multiple editions of a campaign setting. The reality is people invest in...

    5E Planescape to languish in purgatory?

    I think Spelljammer is long overdue for an update compared to Planescape, and I also think it would capture on the 80s future-retro craze that has dominated pop culture for the last few years.

    5E My Favorite Player Options From Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything

    I was genuinely surprised by how much I liked most of the content of this book, including the replacement Ranger features which have stirred up controversy (in my view largely unjustly.) Only thing I would have loved to see is a Swordmage subclass for the Artificer. I actually really like...
