    WotC WotC needs an Elon Musk

    If something is true in a particular edition of a game, it is not automatically true in later editions unless specifically addressed.

    WotC WotC needs an Elon Musk

    Since you and a couple of other people are arguing for the addition of quasi-elemental planes to 5e, doesn’t that argument work for virtually everything? I want the addition of food-based subclasses! Where’s the Order of the Custard Oath for paladins? I want to bring back monster level...

    WotC WotC needs an Elon Musk

    Who’s talking about removing anything? As far asI know, there is currently no plane of salt in 5e.

    WotC WotC needs an Elon Musk

    So, how does that work? Do the players have to explicitly tell you they use protection? Or do you assume that they did not if they don’t specify? Do you call them out if they didn’t specify that they purchased protection beforehand and they are in a location where protection isn’t readily...

    D&D General what is the worst race in dnd?

    Before Flint, there were quite a few dwarven characters that players could take as their inspiration. Tasselhoff was not only the first kender most people were exposed to, he went on to star in a large number of Dragonlance novels. He was also hardly the only kender portrayed that way in...

    D&D General what is the worst race in dnd?

    Volo’s 5e Orc is worse though. One of two races with a stat penalty, and a racial ability that is extremely situational, they were just bad.

    Hey, if there is one group you don’t want to piss off even more than worshippers, it’s fans of the MCU.

    D&D 5E Broad vs Narrow Classes

    I don’t think the problem is spellcasting. The Avenger wore no armor and couldn’t lay on hands, which makes it tough to fit on the paladin chassis.

    Elon Musk is picking a fight with Apple. Apple is one of Twitter's major advertisers, having spent $48 million dollars on the platform in 2021. Genius!

    D&D General Younger Players Telling Us how Old School Gamers Played

    I was going back to the initial point as raised: bonus XP for acting your class, which I was very much against. I don’t know where you stand on that issue.

    Precisely because it is the 21st century, you can get a lot of incorrect information if you don’t actually read it.

    WotC WotC needs an Elon Musk

    Saying that consistency to 20-year old lore is more important than playability is ensuring that the franchise will die out. As @Levistus's_Leviathan correctly points out, would fans of the old lore even buy such product, since they already own a lot of the lore?

    D&D 5E Broad vs Narrow Classes

    Just wanted to second that the Avenger and the Invoker were awesome.

    D&D 5E Broad vs Narrow Classes

    IMHO, this was a mistake. Wizards whole thing is their versatility, and all the subclasses could cast all the arcane spells. Meanwhile, the much more tightly constrained Sorcerer had to make do with 2 subclasses.

    D&D 5E Broad vs Narrow Classes

    Broad, but I don’t think you need to reduce classes, just broaden what they are good at. Druids get wildshape. I have several concepts for druids that are ill-served by turning into animals . Funnily, so does D&D, but instead of replacing Wildshape, it just bolts something on. Star Druids...
