    5E The spell hallow

    Just wanted to asking anyone has seen a forum somewhere about secondary variants for the spell in the spell description it list some options and something the DM can offer instead. I was curious what other options would be viable as well ?

    5E Tomb of horrors first time running it for 5e making some changes for my players looking for some input from the community

    I did purchase the pdf and physical copy I'm a big proponent of hand outs I'm still working on my technique of describing a scene. I like illustrations and other means to set the scene feel it helps describe and capture what your saying. Thank you for your advice also what stormonu said work...

    Thank you everyone you chimed in on my question. Will have to take some time to digest might look at a different adventure or make one from scratch with heavy inspiration from the OG module and tales from the yawning portal.

    D&d as a whole is built on combat and to deny players the use of there abilities that are specific to combat seems a disservice?

    That's just it was originally design with time limit because of tournament play. We aren't running a tournament this is at home so in that sense adding some combat could perhaps add a timer back in and the tension. Having a great big monster coming at you while trying to open a door and your in...

    Most of my players are newer like me and i dont think really care about the presidge of it. If I keep in the spirit of it does that really detract from the idea of it? Maybe later on i can run it again as is?

    I have purchase the original (green book) pdf and the print on demand. I do agree the art is great. Hmm maybe I should have posted that I want to run TOH but with a different spin? My intention is to run something fun with TOH part not trying to run as is if that makes sense? I will talk to my...

    I like that idea will have to work on it. My intention is not to be combat heavy more random fights during some of the puzzles maybe to give more tension. More combat medium. Was also thinking locking them in similar to the tomb of the 9 gods in tomb of annihilation which also had a great chart...

    I'm aware of the hack and slash might hate it but I've asked them if they where interested and did warn them it was combat light and more thinking. They told me they where for it I think having something little different can be interesting and me adding some more combat for those that do want it...

    That's fair I'm new to d&d started off very short in pathfinder then started 5e 2 years ago so not a lot of experience with older versions but I do read the old stuff to steal ideas.

    From what I have read is that the traps in the 1e version if you failed the save you died in where the 5e version you do not there is still some stuff that will straight up kill you but I think it is lessen in the 5e version vs 1e also sounds like the general consensus is that 5e players are...

    Good day everyone as the tittle suggest, I have ran this adventure as a player once and I will be running this as a DM first time, looking over the module plan to add some combat encounters and change the existing one's because I can and because some of my players are hack and slash so I don't...

    5E Whelm and Blackrzor should they be wielded by the ones guarding them also Keraptis to fight or not to?

    Good day everyone like to pose 2 questions. The Vampire and the Oni protecting the treasures in White Plume mountain its not stated that there wielding the weapons in combat vs the PC's but was thinking why not ? I know that there quite powerful but would it be to hard for a group of 4 level 9...

    5E Player character lv 10 wizard who is also smart player how to challenge?

    I remember reading about the wild magic zones witch I think in some places can be instilled to have random effects I can justify. I have a few ideas on how to implement them, just need to make or find a roll chart that I like lol Thanks for the great advice

    Yup seems to be more about smaller and many more encounters then a few big ones, as the players level I'm thinking that they can handle more little ones maybe not all of the encounters due to IRL time restraints for that game session. Stretch the in game time over more sessions.
