    D&D 5E Is my brother a problem player? Or am I just a bad DM?

    My main concern was over my family life anyway. It's a game after all.

    Thanks for the advice. Don't try and flog a dead horse I guess.

    D&D 5E Is my brother a problem player? Or am I just a bad DM?

    My theory was that people would be more familiar with in game disputes than me. I think the new campaign is a good idea though

    D&D 5E Is my brother a problem player? Or am I just a bad DM?

    Thanks for the reply. I do roll in the open, since my players have to, so I just think it makes it fairer. Perhaps Tiamat could send Arkhan...

    D&D 5E Is my brother a problem player? Or am I just a bad DM?

    I understand that. But my question was not really to do with the 'personal dispute'. I wanted to know if people thought that continuing the game would be detrimental to the fun of my players, or that is may develop into something a lot worse, since I have little experience in these things

    D&D 5E Is my brother a problem player? Or am I just a bad DM?

    Thanks for the advice. We currently have two games running, where the Barb runs Waterdeep. I'm afraid to say that his Bard(sigh) got in a fight with the new Barb in the first session, after he started a monologue in a stealth mission, drawing the Intellect Devourer to us.

    D&D 5E Is my brother a problem player? Or am I just a bad DM?

    Thanks for the advice. I'm afraid I said that to my party, and my brother took over for a session, but gave up very quickly. He doesn't know that I posted this, and would probably get mad about it if I told him.

    D&D General What role do the planes play in your games?

    In my game, Dragons and Giants have been at war for all eternity. So Tiamat and Annum didn't slog in the streets, they were each banished to an empty plane. Their sheer hatred and will transformed the plae into the Nine Hells and the Feywild. My party just ventured into Avernus, for (in my...

    D&D 5E Is my brother a problem player? Or am I just a bad DM?

    Hello all. Before I dive into this, I want to make it clear that I don't know if the problem is actually the way I'm doing it. The party consists of a Dragonborn Zealot Barb, an Aasimar Ancients Paladin, an Elf Scribe Wizard, and an Artificer turned Ki-Rin. I picked up the game at level 13...

    D&D 5E Help With fixing the BBEG, after he got destroyed in 3 rounds

    Wizard has Robe of the Archmagi, Barb has Danger Sense for the dex throw. I'm just a bit hesitant to TPK them, even though they clearly picked a CR 26 fight

    D&D 5E Help With fixing the BBEG, after he got destroyed in 3 rounds

    Ancients Paladin was the problem. It has a Scarab of protection I forgot about. Advantage on magical saves, +5 to all of them, resistance to spell damage. Wizard and Barbarian have advantage as well. The Wizard would probably die regardless though

    That is... extremely helpful. Thank you

    There was the 4 Fire Giants as well, and the Paladin got into a one on one with Bel(dragonborn hates Giants). I didn't end up using Meteor Swarm or Imprisonment, just Legendary Action fireballs and 3 attacks

    D&D 5E Help With fixing the BBEG, after he got destroyed in 3 rounds

    When I had a look, it was already really helpful, specifically with multiple forms

    D&D 5E Help With fixing the BBEG, after he got destroyed in 3 rounds

    This isn't supposed to be an ordinary monster. I just grossly underestimated his abilities(I was hoping his 4 allies would help, but a 7th level Call Lightning didn't help). He just wasn't strong enough, my fault completely on that.
