    5E Tasha's Hideous Laughter vs Otto's Irresistible Dance

    Ok, so I'd missed some subtle differences in the spells. The advantage on saves With Tasha's I'd missed, which makes it much less useful. I'd also missed The fact that there is no initial saving throw on Otto's Irresistible Dance. Thanks for the clarification.

    5E Tasha's Hideous Laughter vs Otto's Irresistible Dance

    Apparently, Otto isn't as efficient a spellcaster as Tasha? Hideous Laughter: Level 2 1 minute concentration - save every round Target is Prone (advantage when dealing melee, disadvantage to attack). Cannot stand Target is incapacitated (can't take actions or reaction) Presumably, can crawl...

    The Horror! of Haunted Houses

    We had an adventure where we had to save someone from a warehouse. It turns out it was a WereHouse.

    D&D doesn't need bards

    Considering that I hate Warlocks, I actually like this idea. The mechanics make way more sense for a bard. Having your instrument or focus of study actually have a mechanical benefit is a great idea.

    5E A brief rant about Rime of the Frost Maiden, farming, logistics, and ecology

    Speaking of focusing on the story the author is telling, it made me think of this: https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/45081/the-cremation-of-sam-mcgee

    5E A brief rant about Rime of the Frost Maiden, farming, logistics, and ecology

    I live in Northern Ontario and we get -40 weather for stretches in the winter and a steady -20 to -30 Celsius(-4 to-22F) all winter... The people I play with actually know what it feels like to be out when it's that cold. We also know that -20 Celsius can be deadly cold if you're not prepared...

    5E Bad Sage Advice?

    Sorry, what was the ridiculous Barkskin ruling?

    5E Chase Rules - help checking the maths

    Yeah maybe, except every time I've ever done a Chase, people are raising their hands, "but what about this ability that I have?" I'm trying to incorporate most of those desires.

    5E Chase Rules - help checking the maths

    I'm working up some Chase rules and slowly fleshing them out. I'd like some help with DCs and stuff, as well as anything I may have overlooked. And General comments to hammer out kinks. I'm trying to cover many bases. Lots of people have skills and talents and abilities that should help with...

    5E Greater Invis and Stealth checks, how do you rule it?

    I'm not sure where you get levels. Seeing something is just one sense that used to detect something. People have multiple senses. So you can be unseen and detected or you could have the potential for someone to see you(not heavily obscured) and yet go undetected. Stealth It doesn't NEED to...

    General Amazing Magic Item: Bag of Useful Halflings

    I'm playing in a game that is designed to be light-hearted and silly. Our DM just gave us a Bag of Useful Halflings. It's the best item I've ever got in D&D ever. It brought me Pure Joy. I found a bag...it had a label on it: Bag of useful halflings I reached in and pulled out a...

    Dresden Files spoilers

    I have yet to read it...I feel I should brush up by reading the old books. Is there a lot of exposition? Can I read it without needing to remember all the little details? I'm a pretty avid Dresden Files RPGer(I've been in an on-going game for 6 years) so the world itself is quite familiar but...

    5E How do OAs trigger when an enemy has multiple reaches?

    Obviously. But, sorry, did I use the word safe? If so, then that wasn't what I meant. I used the word unmolested. It's probably better to use the phrase 'with impunity'. But we're talking about Attacks of Opportunity. If the creature has a 15 foot reach you can do circles around it, with...

    5E How do OAs trigger when an enemy has multiple reaches?

    double-post(again) Although, once an attack gets provoked, Do the rules specify which weapon you must use to make the attack? The logic, to me, feels like it should be the weapon that caused you to provoke the attack. Personally, the more I think about it, I dislike the fact that you can move...
