    Level Up (A5E) Final Hours to Back Level Up: Advanced 5th Edition!

    The monster previews are what pushed me over into pledging for the core hardcovers. Looking forward to this, congrats to the team as you guys get close to wrapping this Kickstarter drive up!

    D&D General Critical Role Video game in the works.

    I see, thanks for the response. I guess I didn't really see it as an inversion since the concept of "traditionally evil monsters/races being a different alignment" in D&D, even entire societies, was already officially done about a decade+ before/two editions ago in Eberron. I enjoy CR, but...

    5.5E Little changes for 5.5

    Honestly my biggest hope with the upcoming revision is more tools to make DMing smoother. For all my issues with 4e, it did make running/prepping incredibly smooth and easy. They're already making the monster stat block a bit more straightforward which is good, but I'd like to see a return of...

    D&D 5E Ray Winninger, in charge of D&D, states his old school bonefides.

    The disclaimer on some of the older products on DMs Guild seems to be the biggest point I've seen with where a lot of older gamers take issue. The original product is there and completely intact (no alterations to the actual original work), and it's not throwing people under the bus or...

    D&D General Critical Role Video game in the works.

    A tactics-style game would rock, especially with them having such a large roster of characters (PC/NPCs/Guests + whatever news ones they would want to make). Might be too niche though, since the only game with a somewhat similar style that seems to sell especially well is the Fire Emblem...

    D&D General Critical Role Video game in the works.

    I honestly can't really think of a political entity in their campaign that fits that mold. But then again it was a very long campaign so there may be details that I don't recall? Are you referring to something that was in one of their campaign setting books?

    D&D General Critical Role Video game in the works.

    Excited to see what type of game they go towards with this. RPG would make the most sense, but then people would likely expect something 5e-related. WotC seems eager to roll with CR, I wonder if that would include letting them adapt their system for a video game without much fuss?

    Level Up (A5E) It's Here! It's Time To LEVEL UP Your 5E Game!

    Good stuff, congrats to Morrus and team!

    Level Up (A5E) Level Up: Exploration Pillar Trailer

    The exploration rules and alternate take on monsters is the main reason I'm interested in this! Hopefully the Level Up stuff can be picked apart well enough to insert into normal 5e as rules modules, and not have to use the full set of Level Up rules.

    D&D 5E Tracy & Laura Hickman Announce Skyraiders of Abarax

    Gorgeous artwork and they most certainly have the cred, but not enough detail yet to really be excited. Look forward to when the kickstarter goes up and they put out more information. Hopefully that font choice on those social media images are not used extensively on any final product, it...

    D&D 5E Mystara Player's Guide free for download

    Very cool of you to put this up after all the work put into it. Sorry to hear your thoughts on the likelihood of Mystara becoming available as a setting for creators on DM's Guild, but you are more than likely correct.

    D&D 5E I thought WotC was removing biological morals?

    It always seems to go back to being about orcs and drow, people just can't help themselves

    D&D 5E I thought WotC was removing biological morals?

    Not as far as I can tell. Feels more like a backdoor way to get back to complaining about WotC and their removing problematic elements from humanoid races (orcs, drow, etc) as the base assumption for all members of the race than to actually be about redcaps/other planar beings.

    D&D 5E I thought WotC was removing biological morals?

    I think 3e muddied things up a bit when they labeled them "native outsiders" (I don't think they were called as such in other editions, but maybe someone can correct me/verify?), but yeah, even with that label they were explained as "not truly outsiders themselves".

    D&D 5E Take the Ready action.

    I believe it was due to how a lot of effects are worded to end at the start or end of individual PCs/Creatures' turns. It can effectively change the duration of an effect in some unintended way if that creature from whom the effect duration is determined delays their turn to later in the...
