    D&D 6E YOU are in charge of the next PHB! What do you change?

    I am in charge? Me?!?! Hum, you want that PHB before 2035 right? You do? Oh well, better keep these changes simple then... I’d make sure each class get 3 subclasses in PHB. I’d work toward a warlock-like structure for all classes, with a significant choice at 1st level, another at 3rd level...

    D&D General Did you get your start playing D&D, and what do you play now?

    I was introduced to "D&D" through a medieval-fantasy live action roleplaying game. Then brought to the table to the game that was "like the LARP, but we sit around a table and play with pen, paper, and minis". Now I play both D&D and other RPGs. Now that the kids have grown, maybe I'll start...

    D&D 5E What does 5E do well?

    What does 5e D&D 5e does best? It does D&D very well. Better than any edition so far, according to what I like D&D to be, which is different from what D&D was to me 10, 15, 20 years ago, and probably different from the D&D I'll want to play in 10, 15, 20 years from now. While it might not...

    D&D 5E Ray Winninger mentions third project!

    When my eyes first glanced over the OP, I red “@aquelajames” as “@spelljammer”. After a split second in shock, I realized my mistake

    D&D 5E What exactly is Feywild in your campaigns?

    That’s an interesting twist. “Traditionally”, the realm of the dead is where people looked to to divine the future (the initial meaning of necromancy) while fairies were stuck in the past, unable of progress to the point of being allergic to iron and “new” monotheist religions, able to perfectly...

    RPG Print News – Cubicle 7, Pegasus Spiele, Game Tank, and More

    hum, Dice Tower isn't LEGO but temping nonetheless... I wonder how the colours compare. Anyone know what brand they use?

    D&D General BULLYWUGS OF THE BOG! (D&D toys)

    All I know is that his helmet would never stay put... I'm trying to find a relation, but I can't think of any.

    D&D 5E Medieval D&D Character Sheets

    It has an aesthetic that relates more to medieval than sci fi, western, steampunk and antiquity, at least more so than a plain or neutral-looking (but often more functional) sheet. but, yes, no Latin, no hand-writing and ink blotches, no floral drop-cases, no illuminations, no overly complex...

    D&D 5E 5e has everything it needs for Dark Sun

    If that is the material we have to work with, I failed to see how it could mean that every rocky outcropping is inhabited by a Spirit of the Land. I read that Spirits can inhabit any kind of geological feature, and that when a geological feature is inhabited by a Spirit, the Spirit may be...

    D&D 5E 5e Psionics Handbook: What would it look like?

    What I would like from a psionics handbook... Psionics-as-spells and a system that sit besides but meshes 100% with the current pseudo-vancian system. A new class cementing psionics as a magical tradition indépendant from arcane and divine spellcasters. Ideally, psychic/magical powers similar...

    D&D 5E My critic on VRGtR

    Nice review, thanks! I respectfully refute this statement, both that bards must be entertainers, and that the spirit college cannot be an entertainer. I wish I had this book when we played CoS. "Spiritualist" was my concept and I hesitated between the bard and warlock for my class. Ended-up...

    D&D 5E 5e has everything it needs for Dark Sun

    But why does it need to be different? I'm not asking as an objection, I'm genuinely interested in your response. The supernatural is already very varied in D&D. The biggest divide is arcane magic vs divine magic; one is made, the other is granted. Kind of. They are obviously different types of...
