    5E Rejecting the Premise in a Module

    I remember Chris Perkins talking about "the invisible railroad" as a relevant concept on this point. Check out the illustration on page 76: http://www.wizards.com/dnd/files/DM_Experience_2011.pdf

    5E Rejecting the Premise in a Module

    Suppose your group is playing a module. You all agreed to play a module. Halfway through that module, half of the group decides to knife the primary quest giver and head off for Saltmarsh to become a pirates or whatever. They've rejected the premise and substituted their own. At what point...

    PF1E Favorite Method of Overland Travel

    Neat! I hadn't really considered the fringe benefits of the caravan thing.

    PF1E Favorite Method of Overland Travel

    For me, the problem is always parking. How do you keep your draft horses from getting eaten after the party has gone down into the dungeon? You could hire guards of course, but they cut into the overhead and are just as likely to get eaten by wolves anyway.

    PF1E Favorite Method of Overland Travel

    The time has come. You've finally unlocked the overworld map, and you can go literally anywhere. What is your preferred means of travel? Are you all about teleportation? Do you shell out for an airship? Or do you just save money and walk everywhere like a peasant? And perhaps most troubling...

    General Worst phrasing for a wish?

    Makes me wonder how long it would take for the player to catch on if you constructed a monster-of-the-week campaign from the plots of 90s horror movies. Anaconda for the monster hunt, Cube for the escape dungeon, The Faculty for intellect devourers... Shit, I kind of want to do it now.

    General Worst phrasing for a wish?

    So wait... How'd that end up? Did the dude get a sword, or just an inner feeling of contentment?

    General Worst phrasing for a wish?

    I guess that's one way for a djinn to learn hurl through hell.

    General Worst phrasing for a wish?

    As an exercise in how not to adventure: What is the worst, most foolish, easiest-for-an-evil-genie-to-misinterpret wish? Comic for illustrative purposes.

    Paizo Druids: Do you allow yourselves to be ridden?

    The slippery slope to PVP is paved with accidental horse kicks. :/

    Paizo Druids: Do you allow yourselves to be ridden?

    I really could have phrased that better. :/

    Paizo Druids: Do you allow yourselves to be ridden?

    My fellow druids! I find it is a slippery slope down the path to animal indignity. When wildshaped, it's all too common for my party members to treat me like a dumb beast. I want to be a team player and help pull the cart, but where should I put my hoof down? Comic related.

    5E Does your group use inspiration? If not, why not?

    I'm beginning to wonder if that the thing that distinguishes a good metacurrency from a bad one. If it's part of core gameplay, people use it and remember to use it. If it's just bolted on, people forget to use it, ignore it, and so begin to feel like it's extraneous. In the case of 5e, I...

    5E Does your group use inspiration? If not, why not?

    I'm unfamiliar with the mechanic. How does it work?

    5E Does your group use inspiration? If not, why not?

    Just to clarify, I'm talking about Inspiration rather than Bardic Inspiration: I come from Exalted and Savage Worlds, where meta currencies like "stunt dice" and "bennies" are handed out like candy, allowing players to gain mechanical benefits for doing cool stuff. However, I tend to see a lot...
