    Dragonlance Origin of a tiefling on Krynn?

    Probably just handwave it. Dragonlance had the fewest number of races of the major settings by Design.

    D&D General Fun Experiment: Post a cool bit of (mostly) unknown lore from your favorite setting (+)

    Mystara's races can interbreed but the children are normally the race of the same sex parent. But there is a chance parents with the same genetic mix can produce children of the shared heritage despite the parents' race.

    WotC WotC's Chris Perkins On D&D's Inclusivity Processes Going Forward

    Ierendi was the Polynesian book, but it not considered one of the better ones due to the limited scope of the book. It was only 64 pages compared to the 96 pages the series would expand to next book. It does cover the Makai people in detail but too much of the book was done in a weird way...

    WotC WotC's Chris Perkins On D&D's Inclusivity Processes Going Forward

    The Glantrians are even worse, a nation of wizards comprised of Spanish colonial elves, elfy elves, Scottish, French, Germans, Mongolians, Flemish, Borgia Italians, pale blue transdimensional humans and Transylvanians. And they HATE each other.

    D&D 5E Wheelchair options. Do these seem balanced?

    What's the hit points on the chair? What happens when an orc decides to take an ax to the wheels instead of the person? Would also include disadvantage on dexterity saves as you really can't go side to side to dodge. And if you're not prone you can't get back up without help without exiting the...

    D&D General Dan Rawson Named New Head Of D&D

    That was the Citizen Kane of cannibalistic shell shocked super hero games.

    Ranger playtest discussion

    You could make the favored enemy selection change on a short rest then the penalty for guessing wrong is minimized. I prefer the favored enemy because I picture your standard ranger having an uncomfortably large knowledge of how to kill EVERYTHING. It gives the impression this guy has seen it...

    Ranger playtest discussion

    My issue with the ranger as an expert is it doesn't seem to be an expert at anything. The biggest problem with exploration in 5e is the rules kinda blow chunks. Either the party is going to starve to death or there's no threat at all. I learned this the hard way trying to run Master of the...

    Ranger playtest discussion

    Wizards likes to stay close to formula. There's a reason why most races get dark vision and now they even come with their own spells. They've been adding spells to every class. In Tasha's the fighter Barbarian and Rogue subclasses all had some sort of magical ability attached. They need to think...

    Ranger playtest discussion

    If you want to make the rangers stand out make them as self sufficient as possible. Give them the ability to act as if they have a toolkit in their favored environment even if they don't. Steal from famous scenes for examples. Use the expanded rules for tools and the ranger starts racking up...

    Ranger playtest discussion

    3.0 ranger was the most front loaded class in all of D&D, it was almost solely responsible for the change in multi-tasking rules in 3.5 and got all the starting abilities kicked to later levels. Ruined my rogue/barbarian/ranger build overnight

    Bard Playtest discussion

    Then why not just have a college for healing spells? Get rid of the ability all together and kick it to subclasses

    Ranger playtest discussion

    And that's a big problem. Rangers as written made wilderness adventures toothless because it was an automatic success. I would change it by having two sets of rules for survival. One for rangers and one for everybody else. Ranger gets two favored terrain types and a new one every time the pb...

    Bard Playtest discussion

    Bard needs lot of options, they are supposed to be jack of all trades. Songs of restoration pigeon holes them into back up healers, but what if they want to be Frontline support or to jack with the enemy? Let them pick a set of spells. So when the dwarves charge the orcs, you can have the...
