    Elemental Evil characters not allowed in Season 3?

    Bingo. Splat combo's had to die and this is an efficient way to do it.

    OOTS 1011

    Belkar did look pissed off enough to return as a D&D Revenant. That would be kind of quick, but it's possible, especially if the 3 Fiends get involved to protect their interests. More likely though as others pointed out... Throwing Your Sword Always Works EDIT:Actually my money is now on...

    D&D 5E Traps and DCs

    K, here's the rub, The DMG doesn't say TO use both active and passive, it says you (the DM) can use passive {for those wanting the 4E experience). It's only those with a 'Player Brain' read that as the DM should use both. Also there was a slightly more complex way of detecting traps in at...

    OotS 1010!!!

    It is an ass pull for Durkula being knocked out of Hel's Might before it's duration is up, Roy's technique disrupts spellcasting, it doesn't end ongoing spells. it is an ass pull for deadly green energy, that's particularly harmful to undead, to suddenly send a sword's bearer into a ragestate...

    D&D 5E Changing Spell Elemental Damage

    Yeah, MM energy resistances are pretty much main reason why to be cautious with changing up spell energy types. Keeping the opposition's resistances varied is a great way to reward diversification and keep those studying the MM on their toes.

    Wow, what an ass pull. Dispel magic on hit, rage mode and a full heal out of nowhere.

    D&D 5E Misty Stepping on my Dragon (critique my ruling)

    I'd say it was a bad ruling that let an over optimized and over-focused PC outshine the others.

    D&D 5E Increasing spell power

    Best way I can see to rebalance save or suck is to allow those affected to tear themselves free, doing significant psychic damage to themselves.

    D&D 5E Examples of a Strength Saving Throw

    Because it is Jim's player's fault they didn't choose to raise his wisdom. Especially if he pigged out on feats.

    D&D 5E ritual casting overpowered?

    One thing is characters do have some firm limits on how many spells they have prepared.

    D&D 5E Examples of a Strength Saving Throw

    That is a feature, not a bug. Ignoring shoring up a low stat isn't something to be rewarded.

    D&D 5E ritual casting overpowered?

    Random encounters balance out rituals. Standing around chanting for 10 minutes is likely to get noticed. There are reasons why packs of low level foes take up more table time than they are worth XP wise. Rituals are one of them.

    D&D 5E Eliminating skill & feat taxes

    A fine example are feats so overpowered that some view them as a Must Take For Certain Builds AKA Feat Taxes.
