    D&D General Different regions VS different planes

    For different cultures, there's plenty of room in my world. I haven't had to address the issue of different rules/settings, but in practical terms I'm not sure I'd see much difference between "different planets" and "alternate material planes". For any one campaign, I think I can create plenty...

    D&D 5E Survivor 5e Giants (M-Z) - Thunderous applause for the Storm Giant

    So I was thinking we could take a break from creatures, and I noted that I didn't see a Survivor - Skills in the metathread, nor do I recall there being one. But it seems like a pretty obvious one. Does anyone remember there being a Survivor - Skills thread?

    D&D 5E Saving throw for Arcane Ward

    Sorry, poor wording on my part. Should have said, "If a wizard with Arcane Ward active is subject ..."

    D&D 5E Saving throw for Arcane Ward

    Does anyone know if there is RAW answer for the following? If not, how do you handle it? If Arcane Ward is subject to a damage effect that allows a saving throw, does the ward a) use the wizard's saving throw, b) make it's own saving throw using the wizard's stats and proficiencies, c) make...

    D&D 5E Urgent, for tonight's game: Making a Swarm

    Ok, interesting. I had not noticed that.

    D&D 5E Urgent, for tonight's game: Making a Swarm

    Another idea: for tiny or small base creatures, you could create a megaswarm by increasing the size and hit dice. And as it lost HP, it could break apart into smaller swarms. Obviously some details to be worked out, which I would do, but a little pressed for time atm.

    Another possibility would be to multiply the base creature damage. Off the top of my head, maybe 4x for tiny base creatures, 3x for small, and 2x for medium.

    D&D 5E Urgent, for tonight's game: Making a Swarm

    First, generally I think these were great answers; so really I am just nitpicking here. But. As a matter of verisimilitude, I would only give bludgeoning, piercing, slashing resistance if the base creature is tiny, or, perhaps, small. But maybe I'm missing something. Not sure I understand the...
