    D&D 5E What do you want out of crafting rules?

    D&D 5E What do you want out of crafting rules?

    I'm going to take a contrary, and maybe controversial, view. I want crafting to be expensive for the characters and/or the players. As a GM, I don't want to sit and watch players spend an hour doing crafting stuff, having their characters spend two months making an awesome sword/armor/whatever...

    D&D 5E DM Screens

    I've owned two of those. The first seperated into two screens within a few months, the second held on for about three years before seperating. The thin plastic between the individual screens is very, well, thin. Also, the pockets are very narrow. You can't put plain paper in them, it just...

    D&D 5E Could Theros and Tasha's Cauldron the way they're going to handle real-world pantheons?

    On the other hand, history has never been accurate historically. :-) There wasn't any such thing as the "Greek pantheon." Every city-state and region had its own take on the gods. That's where we get Athena Alea, Athena Polias, Athena Nike, Aphaea and so on. In Athens she was the patron of...

    EVERWAY Then and Now

    The boxed set is beautiful. It is still on my shelf today. The game was a revolution to one of my players at the time, who had a lot of problems with not being able to roll. 'What do you mean I don't get to roll?" For some reason, the idea that his character might just fail (or might just...

    D&D General Do genes exist in D&D?

    Do not try to mix science with D&D. That way madness lies. Genetics is in the big set of "real world stuff that just doesn't work right", along with gravity, density (specifically the square-cube relationships that mean giants can't exist), plate techtonics (hello Underdark!), conservation of...

    D&D General Name your favorite 4 person party composition.

    4 halfling bards. Scary, Sporty, Baby and Ginger.

    D&D General why do we have halflings and gnomes?

    I have gnomes and halflings in my game because they illustrate two completely opposite ways of dealing with outsiders. When humans expanded into formerly gnome or hin territory, the gnomes responded by retreating and hiding. A Gnome community might be only a few miles from a human village, but...

    D&D 5E Races with floating bonuses: Designing from scratch

    I'd remove floating attribute bonuses entirely. A floating bonus is just the same as more points. For exmaple, give everyone 31 points to buy attributes. If you want to be an elf, cool, you're an elf. You can see in the dark.

    D&D General How many Races it too much?

    In my experience, it doesn't matter how many races you have; players want what's not there. Or they will take something gonzo and then complain about it. For example, I ran a human-centric game (the dwarves were almost extinct, the elves were lotus-eaters, other races were extremely rare). The...

    D&D 5E Shield Saltiness

    "Hey, town guard/lackey of the Burgomeister. I don't know if you've noticed but there are —ing werewolves roaming the streets of your town at night! A saber-toothed tiger escaped from a zoo last week. That house over there used to hold a cult of evil murderers (you are welcome, by the way). A...

    D&D 5E Getting rid of bad skill proficiencies

    I think charisma is the appropriate stat because being strong isn't scary, unless you have the will to actually back up your threats. If I don't believe you are willing to go through with it then it doesn't matter how much you wave a club or juggle a dagger across your knuckles. I'm not...

    D&D 5E Where in FR do you want the next big adventure book to go?

    My first preference, The Unapprochable East. I like the Sword Coast, but I figure it is a bit done to death. There are some really interesting features to the countries of the East, that take us away from the city-state, rather vanilla, setting of the West. For a start, there are countries...
