    5E Telegraphing Attacks

    Oh, that reminds me of the other suggestion I had, @Xeviat. In this case, you could have "winding up a tree-trunk to swing" be a bonus action that the ogre takes at the end of his turn. This would let the act of take a normal weaker attack on round 1 and begin his wind up. On round 2, he can...

    5E Telegraphing Attacks

    It's an excellent idea. You can also have spells that activate immediately (so they can't be disrupted) but they don't have any negative effects until a round or two pass. Like, a spell called Satyrn's Gathering Storm could immediately fill a 20 foot radius with a roiling wind and light fog...

    5E Lighting Effects

    I just consider the lightning conditions the "target" is in. No matter what lighting condition you're standing in, if you're looking at something in dim light, the dim light rule applies. If you're looking at something in bright light, the bright light rules apply.

    5E What Does Your Magic Look Like

    I don't have an answer. I'm at a point in the cycle of my gaming where the default flavor of the game is good enough and I just don't care to flesh it out, even if the default favor is non-existent. But still, your Bladesong description is awesome!

    General Turgenev's Friday Freebie Maps

    Another excellent map I can readily slot into a corner of my megadungeon! I always like the mix of natural caverns and constructed rooms, and a river is always welcome. I'm also looking forward to seeing how the Eye of Shum'Morak turns out.

    5E Consensus about two-weapon fighting?

    I don't even agree that it needs fixing. I've played a fighter who did it, and it was fine. And then there's a ranger in my megadungeon campaign dual-wielding pistols and he's loving it. And that's despite the fact that he also has a rifle that gives him an extra attack as a bonus action.

    5E Attacking defenseless NPCs

    I'm under the impression that Bawylie was picturing a scenario where the opponent has been pinned down or is otherwise rendered defenseless before the stinger-removal or limb-chopping could take place. That would be my requirement, anyway. I'm not worried about that being the go-to move...

    I bet 5 XP this ain't over.

    General If you could put D&D into any other non middle ages genre, what would it be?

    :hmm: "Cthulhu's in the next room. Go on, open the door." :uhoh: :erm:

    General If you could put D&D into any other non middle ages genre, what would it be?

    I'd still totally give computers the mental ability scores. Like, at its most basic, its Intelligence would measure it's actual computing power, how well or quickly it does the stuff is supposed to do. This would be the computer's attack stat if it's in control of any turrets, or whatever...

    General If you could put D&D into any other non middle ages genre, what would it be?

    Edit: Oops. I didn't mean to quote you Matthia. I like how that mirrors the recent rules that give vehicles the physical ability scores, and it gives a natural way to create KITT.

    General If you could put D&D into any other non middle ages genre, what would it be?

    Yeah, what genre is Fallout: New Vegas? That's my second choice for an answer to the OP.

    5E Attacking defenseless NPCs

    To answer the OP: I'd ask the ranger's player to make an attack roll and damage if necessary, then give the other players a chance to do something if the orc survived. If the orc is still alive at the point, he'd behave according a roll on the guard personality table, which might have him...

    5E Abilities....Which check would you use?

    Oh, yeah, um . . . *scrambles for a justification to get the DM on board* . . . it's, uh, very well organized by environment (being a compendium written by rangers on their favored terrains) and then further sub-categorized by number of toes, size of print and CR. And yeah, it's huuuge. The...

    But do you still have your sanity? I mean, if your guide's come in handy . . .
