    D&D 5E Simple Rules for Aging (+)

    This is interesting. I was going to start a thread about this. I've noticed, not just in 5e, although 5e really makes a point of making people 'die when it's their time'. If you look at all the powers from various classes that stop ageing, it indicates that you cannot live beyond your...

    D&D 5E Can I use animate dead to reanimate a zombie that has been killed?

    Interestingly: True Resurrection: If the creature was undead, it is restored to its non-undead form.

    D&D 5E Can I use animate dead to reanimate a zombie that has been killed?

    Is there no difference between a slain undead Ogre or a slain undead Dragon? They are no longer a former dragon or Ogre? They are just undead? The interesting thing about this ruling is turning someone into an undead, 100% proofs them from being resurrected since that spell doesn't work on...

    D&D 5E Can I use animate dead to reanimate a zombie that has been killed?

    I've always used the term Destroy. You can't kill an undead because it's not alive. You can only kill something that is alive. You can destroy it, though. And, to me, Once it's destroyed, it's simply a corpse again. Which, for the purpose of the OP makes me think, if the corpse is...

    D&D 5E Can I use animate dead to reanimate a zombie that has been killed?

    All corpses are objects. That’s another thing that was stated by Sage Advice. So one SA ruling can’t support another. Which is why I really take it with a grain of salt.

    D&D 5E Can I use animate dead to reanimate a zombie that has been killed?

    It’s no longer undead. It’s an object. It’s a corpse. That’s my opinion. I find JCs interpretation of monster types very weird. The argument that you can’t Resurrection on a corpse because it was once an undead and now the corpses ‘type’ changed from humanoid to ‘undead’ boggles the...

    D&D 5E Buffing monks: with simple changes.

    2d12 at 20th level. Then you have multiple dice to pick up off the floor after waiting an eternity for them to stop rolling.

    D&D 5E Buffing monks: with simple changes.

    With all the images of martial artists punching through bricks and boards and stuff, I'm surprised none of the editions ever gave monks the ability to do double damage to structures/objects or some similar power.

    D&D 5E Buffing monks: with simple changes.

    Sure, fair enough. But they should at least be able to keep up with an unarmed fighter without having to multi-class. I don't think it's too much. A great sword is a d12 and they can't synergize many feats with it like a fighter can with a heavy weapon.

    D&D 5E Buffing monks: with simple changes.

    Agreed. I like how it scaled in older editions(3e): 1st: 1d6 4th: 1d8 8th: 1d10 12th: 2d6 16th: 2d8 20th: 2d10

    D&D General The word "Dweomer" by Gygax

    The British way. Just ignore the red squiggly lines under your words when you type. It adds more flavour.

    D&D 5E Buffing monks: with simple changes.

    I'm not sure if this has been mentioned but, with the new unarmed fighting style that Fighters get, a monk's unarmed damage scales too slowly. It seems to encourage a 1 level Fighter dip or a feat to get that fighting style to get a 1d8 unarmed damage at 1st. A monk starts at a d4. It's...
