    D&D General Not Railroad, Not Sandbox ... What else is there?

    I thought that Sandboxing also imply a precise determination of monsters, mapping, threats that the PC may encounter, and the DM has to stick hardly to those predetermined information. Or maybe I misunderstood?

    D&D General Are NPCs like PCs?

    For sure I never see a party of npc succeed an adventure, unless for sad DM who play alone.

    D&D General Are NPCs like PCs?

    I like to play in a fantasy world where I don’t know every mechanics about magic. It’s hard at first to place faith in DM and receive description as the reality, and don’t quit by asking “what spell do that”, “Does he still have spell slot usable”. From a NPC point of view, character may not...

    I made a cleric once, and took point buy 15,15,15,8,8,8 and have crap dex, charisma and int. it was a cool character. on top of that I even take proficiency in persuasion!

    And it will be even more efficient since PC won’t be able to counterspell it no more.

    D&D 5E Balancing Rolled Stats with ASIs

    I got a suggestion for less random ability score. You use point buy to place initial score. Then you let roll 4d6 drop lowest x time to try to improve the best or two best score, or the best and the worst score. It won’t create monster, it won’t won’t create scrap character. a more formal...

    D&D 5E Balancing Rolled Stats with ASIs

    Indeed, and some table have certainly seen worst case than this one. Math and probability are hard, if you let roll six time for stat, one of these days someone, somewhere gonna roll six 18. Or six 3! So a system that want more leveled ability score need to aim directly at rolled stat with some...

    D&D 5E Balancing Rolled Stats with ASIs

    Rolled stat imply luck. Ok, you can help people to catch up, but what to do with rolls like 18, 18, 16, 15, 13, 11 vs 12, 11, 11, 10, 9, 7 just figure out how your proposal will react with such rolls.

    D&D 5E Balancing Rolled Stats with ASIs

    Last time we rolled stat it was openly in front of everyone, but your post remind me of old memories. Rolled stat is often an iconic moment in DnD personal history, some remember very well if their first character roll a 18. it’s a part of the game to handle with care!

    D&D 5E Balancing Rolled Stats with ASIs

    One point of rolling stat is to have better stat than its fellow partner! You are breaking the fun if you let the other catch back the gap.

    D&D 5E Psionics in a sci-fi D&D

    After some reply in other thread, I start to understand some expectations : Psionic need to be “special“ even in a fantasy game. Psionic need to be a system out of the system, like “I used my telekinetic power to” and add a flavorful description. Overall some have the expectation of an ideal...

    And they remove the term ”sub race”, to make sure nobody could interpret sub as inferior!

    Don’t bother unless you want to add a Nth psionic supplement on DM guild.

    D&D 5E Psionics in a sci-fi D&D

    Indeed DnD never gonna beat fantasy magic that got always the right power, with the right power level, efficiency and restraint to keep the fantasy interesting and satisfying.

    D&D 5E Psionics in a sci-fi D&D

    For what I understand, expectation for fantasy or sci-fi psionic would be features that are Efficient, scalable, versatile, adaptable, and can be used on either active, reactive and passive mode.
