    D&D 5E Suggestions for improving a Halfling Mark of Healing Rogue 5 build

    Thanks @Kobold Stew ! Appreciate it. Yeah, I can potentially see some uses for Mending but it does depend on how the party ends up operating and whether they're content to wait/do something else while I sneak about. I have a feeling they may get bored and just charge in, so I'll have to see. I'm...

    D&D 5E Suggestions for improving a Halfling Mark of Healing Rogue 5 build

    Thank you @FrogReaver and @Eltab. I really appreciate those assessments. And the reassurance about the Wiz ability dependency. It feels a bit suboptimal to have a character who relies hugely on one excellent ability (Dex in this case) for its main role, and two supporting abilities (Int and Wiz...

    D&D 5E Suggestions for improving a Halfling Mark of Healing Rogue 5 build

    TL;DR: Newbie asking for comments on my first 5e character build, a level 5 Halfling Mark of Healing Rogue Context: I'm about to playing my first D&D campaign in about 30 years. I've not built a 5e character before, though I DM'd a very simple one-shot for my family using WOTC pre-builds. The...

    Looking for an mentor

    Try the very first season of Acquisitions Inc.. The S1Ep1 recording starts part-way into a minimal bit of character creation, where a lot of other recorded campaigns don't show that bit because it tends to be kind of slow. It's obvious from the audio-only recording that at this point, at least...

    Looking for D&D 5e group near Marlow UK or online in UK or EU timezone

    Looking for a D&D 5e group who play regularly (anywhere between weekly and monthly) in the evenings UK time, either in person within ~12 miles/20km of Marlow, UK, or online, and have room for a relatively inexperienced player who's not quite a complete beginner. Aiming to play for a campaign or...

    D&D 5E Which version of the Basic Rules is latest/best?

    Aah, thanks. I'd seen mentions of the SRD and OGL and hadn't looked them up before. So the D&D Beyond version is a sort of merge of the Basic Rules (180 pages in a nicely formatted PDF) plus the SRD version 5.1, 403 pages of a less nicely formatted PDF? This makes me glad I'm starting with the...

    D&D 5E Which version of the Basic Rules is latest/best?

    I've almost finished reading the PDF of the Basic Rules here: https://media.wizards.com/2018/dnd/downloads/DnD_BasicRules_2018.pdf. However, I came across attunement for a magic item in an adventure, Googled it, and the first hit happened to be the basic rules here...

    D&D 5E D&D 5e suggestions for two beginner children and a first time DM dad?

    Ha ha, definitely this. Although - silver lining - as a new (or at least very out of date and out of practice) DM, I have few preconceived views on how things are done. It’s about telling a great story together. If something is fun, clever, or makes the story better, i think it’s a DM’s job to...

    This looked really appropriate, so I've picked up a copy. Cheers for the recommendation, this gives us some good choices.

    D&D 5E D&D 5e suggestions for two beginner children and a first time DM dad?

    This is fantastic. It's obvious you know what you're talking about. I am intrigued by #4 because I think you're right, and I'm a bit apprehensive of blowing an award-winning story in the first session, in case it unravels in some way that's beyond my control. Kids can have a bad day and a...

    D&D 5E D&D 5e suggestions for two beginner children and a first time DM dad?

    I'm just amazed by the quality and thoughtfulness of the answers everyone's giving here. Thank you for all this help - most of which seems to be in agreement! :) I have both, so I'll take a look. Both seem somewhat complex to me, which will no doubt make the long-time DMs laugh (which is fine...

    D&D 5E D&D 5e suggestions for two beginner children and a first time DM dad?

    Hello EN World! I used to play AD&D 1e at school when these were the player’s handbook and monster manual: Now, some 30+ years later, I have two primary-school children aged 8 and 10 who I’d love to get into D&D 5e. They absolutely loved the D&D Young Adventurers Collection: How might I...
