    D&D 5E 5E Survivor - Editions of D&D Edition [+]

    My ratio of things I liked about The Last Jedi vs. things I hated is roughly 1:1. I hated literally everything about The Rise of Skywalker.

    Star Wars: Knight of the Old Republic remake announced!

    DA:I's combat was never good in the first place.

    Star Wars: Knight of the Old Republic remake announced!

    Good riddance if so. That's one thing that absolutely has not aged well about KOTOR. Real time with pause in general has not aged well.

    D&D 5E Bards Should Be Half-Casters in 5.5e/6e

    Your definition of "jack of all trades" is clearly different from mine. The 4e and 5e Bards are versatile and can fill roles as needed, but they were also designed to be actually good at something, as opposed to the previous edition Bards who were designed to be mediocre at everything.

    D&D 5E Bards Should Be Half-Casters in 5.5e/6e

    So your solution is to nerf the Bard to a half-caster and make sure it is nobody's best choice for their character. Convenient. In my experience, when asking this question, nearly everybody comes up with answers that suck. To wit, I have intensely disliked every single idea for a half-caster...

    D&D 5E Bards Should Be Half-Casters in 5.5e/6e

    What else do you expect Bardic Inspiration to even do other than the nice things it already does plus whatever additional stuff it can do based on subclass? I don't see any of those classes and subclasses stealing the Bard's thunder, except maybe the Bladesinger stealing Valor's and Sword's...

    D&D 5E Bards Should Be Half-Casters in 5.5e/6e

    But the base class doesn't do "so little" at all. The default use of Bardic Inspiration is still a very solid buff. Another feature the base class has increases the efficiency of using hit dice for healing, without using a spell. The subclasses only add to what the solid base class already does...

    D&D 5E Bards Should Be Half-Casters in 5.5e/6e

    No, it shouldn't. It sort of got away with it in 2e because it leveled up much faster than a Mage, thus its casting actually somewhat kept up in the levels most people played AD&D at. The 3.0 Bard was absolute trash, and the 3.5 Bard remedied the 3.0 situation with overpowered yet somewhat...

    D&D 5E Bards Should Be Half-Casters in 5.5e/6e

    4e threw the very concept of the Bard as a jack of all trades in a fire, and 5e spread the ashes and gave it one feature that bore the name that has only to do with skills. The Bard in the last two editions was NEVER meant to be the jack of all trades as you knew it from 2e and 3e.

    D&D 5E Bards Should Be Half-Casters in 5.5e/6e

    Bardic Inspiration says hello. And at 5th level onward you're handing that out like candy. Umm, isn't a class being at least partially defined by its subclasses a good thing? I really don't see how making it a half-caster opens up any design space it didn't have previously. In fact, if...

    D&D 5E Bards Should Be Half-Casters in 5.5e/6e

    We tried a half-caster bard in the D&D Next playtest, and it was hot garbage. Nope, I like the bard a full caster as it is.

    Oh, I did too, because I wanted to.

    You guys do know you could pick the classes you wanted to provide feedback on, right? You didn't have to do them all?
