    D&D 5E WotC's Nathan Stewart Teases New D&D Setting Book in 2019

    Jeremy Crawford is the Keynote/Storytime speaker for PAX Unplugged at the end of the month - hopefully we'll hear something then. Last year, Chris Cocks made a bunch of general announcements for Magic, other WotC games, and an Ixalan D&D adventure, so it's possible Crawford has announcements...

    Pathfinder 2E Paizo Announces Pathfinder 2nd Edition!

    I have absolutely no problem with more customization, as long as it's balanced enough to not require system mastery to have an effective character. Also, fast character creation and leveling are important. My observations were only that, based on how the blog presented the topics in a...

    Pathfinder 2E Paizo Announces Pathfinder 2nd Edition!

    I want to be open-minded, but the entire play model and character creation system sounds like 5e: three different modes sound like the "three pillars," though they've folded interaction into their Exploration Mode, and made Downtime Mode a pillar, whereas it sits just outside of that in D&D 5e...

    Unearthed Arcana 5E Psionics Alert! The Mystic Is Back In Unearthed Arcana

    I'm digging the ideas behind v3, but not necessarily the execution - but I'll leave my final opinions to after playtesting. Quirks are inspired. The different archetypes are definitely a callback to some of the disciplines specialists and other psionic classes in 3.5/4e, though it feels like...

    D&D 5E Dwindling Basic Rules Support for WotC/Partnered Adventures

    More an observation than a complaint: After the statement from Mike Mearls that the supplement for Out of the Abyss was "lost in the shuffle" and noticing that Curse of Strahd refers DMs to the Monster Manual for creatures not in the appendix in the adventure, I looked back at Out of the Abyss...

    Unearthed Arcana Unearthed Arcana: Psionics and Mystics Take Two

    The latest iteration of the fluff is actually fairly sparse on the Far Realms being the cause, indicating that psionics are indirectly a result of its influence. The description details that the warping of reality awakens abilities that already exist - all they really need to do is add a...

    Unearthed Arcana Cast your guess for upcoming Unearthed Arcana

    Given this post, maybe they're alluding to Dragonlance content? https://twitter.com/Wizards_DnD/status/641396011664064513

    Unearthed Arcana Crawford On Lots Of Stuff! Release Tempo, Video Games, OGL, Conventions, Unearthed Arcana, 2018, Tia

    I know this is off-topic, but I'd totally pay to see this version of Episode VII over the new Fantastic Four...

    Unearthed Arcana Psionics Hits Unearthed Arcana

    Back in 3.0, I used a psi-crystal for my fighter/psion PC - its creepy, spiker-like movements added interesting flavor to my character. While 3.0 included it as a class feature, 3.5 remedied this bug (no pun intended) by setting it up as a feat instead, which psions could select as one of their...

    Beverly, MA: Tuesday Night D&D Group In Search of Adventurers

    Pun Intended - Our regular Tuesday night gaming group is looking for 1-2 extra players to round out our occasional group of 7 (usually up to 6 players and a GM). Due to work/life taking it's toll, our group has been hanging around 3-4 regular players and a GM lately, so we're looking for 1-2...

    D&D 5E D&D Next Blog "Avoiding Choice Traps"

    The latest blog post is up: Avoiding Choice Traps I think the smartest design choice they could make is to go with feats granting bonuses for all three pillars; I've avoided quite a few interesting role-playing/exploration feats for fear of gimping my characters.

    death save clarification?

    I have heard a couple of times, during RPGA events, that the three death save limit is until an extended rest, yet in both the Player's Handbook and the errata, it just states "rest," it doesn't specify short or extended. Is there an actual official source stating that it's supposed to be...

    D&D 4E Healing from Negatives - is it really that good in 4e ?

    What about a hybrid leader/leader? They get seperate word powers, so they can technically blow both in one round, right?
