    Maybe both? There seems to be enough of a feedback loop that figuring out where it starts is ... difficult.

    Yup. I'll add to this that 5E's strong core chassis allows for a lot of customizing and, dare I say, modulating of the complexity dial...

    Fine, I suppose, though I'm not a fan of meta-retcons like this. Agreed. That said, as a DM the character's story I care about is that...

    I think it is a sign of 5E's perennial potential that different people on this forum both want a next edition that is less complex and...

    I think "too attached" is a judgment that's likely to vary from table to table. I think players invested in their characters, and in...

    Ideally you have both. The extent to which that narrative is driven by the characters (or not) also changes the mix. I think it's a...

    Not necessarily. I want players invested in the emergent narrative. Which should ideally be bigger than the sum of its parts (read...

    Players being (too) attached to their PC leads to GMs feeling the need to fudge rolls in order to not kill them, which in turn can make...

    About that, yeah, that's another minor gripe. People are way too attached to playing a singular character. What good is a "vision for...

    Do not be alarmed. :) I'm speaking of what I proposed earlier in the thread. Namely, that WotC release various one-shot standalone D&D...

    Multi-class or hybrid character archetypes are a staple of D&D. The paladin and ranger classes are great examples of martial/divine...

    As I said, ideally I'd have NEITHER subclasses NOR multiclassing, for the sake of niche protection. When you can make a fighty...

    But subclasses, especially too many of them, increase role-overlap. I'd really have a very limited selection of iconic classes that...
