    Avatar Legends: The Roleplaying Game Kickstarter is live!

    I have to say, that looks really impressive.

    D&D 5E Can your Druids wear metal armor?

    That's completely irrelevant to any one who's actually playing the game rather than discussing it on a forum. The only opinions that matter are those of the player and DM. The only thing worthy of discussion are best practices around proper adjudication of the rule to make the game better for...

    D&D 5E Can your Druids wear metal armor?

    The problem is that the rule hearkens back to older AD&D style item prohibitions like "Magic Users can never wear armor" or "Cleric can only use Blunt Weapons"; those rules were problematic then and seem fundamentally atavistic in a modern game. The problem is that those types of prohibitions...

    D&D 5E Can your Druids wear metal armor?

    10+Dex+relevant stat to the class (not Str or Dex). If they trade in heavy armor, shield use is allowed, like Barbarian. Otherwise, no shield use, like Monk.

    D&D 5E Can your Druids wear metal armor?

    Druid armor is one of the main reasons I have a house rule that any character can trade in their armor proficiencies for Unarmored Defense.

    D&D 5E Can your Druids wear metal armor?

    Eating a healthy diet would also improve my likelihood of survival every day, but here we are. :)

    WotC WotC on canon - what's the difference from 3E in the year 2000?

    True, but the community was much tighter and more insular (and decaying) in 1999. I mean, that post was to a newsgroup! I'm sure plenty of people missed the memo. Plus, I think every generation has to learn the hard lesson that the media they consumed growing up is specific to them and to...

    D&D 5E Can your Druids wear metal armor?

    Yep, that's what I do. I have no problem with a druid wearing metal armor, but I have no problem with providing "natural armor" that provides identical protection for a druid that wants it. The important thing is that they're supposed to have the AC that medium armor provides, and I'm not...

    D&D 5E D&D Beyond Cancels Competition

    People use that same argument to argue against a range of policies from a minimum wage to banning hobo fights to not allowing people to sell their own organs.

    D&D 5E 5e Psionics

    Kibbles is the best one I've found, and also has a pretty large playtest base, which helps alleviate balance concerns. A lot of the rough edges have been sanded off getting it ready for publication.

    OSR Commander (Warlord) for the OSR?

    Makes sense. I'd say roughly a command every 3 levels or so, and a stance every 4 to 5? 4 Commands and 3 stances at 10 seems about right, if I'm eyeballing it.

    OSR Commander (Warlord) for the OSR?

    That is true. Since active Commands compete for X/day uses, it would make a lot of sense to grab all the passive Commands you can and then one good active one. You could make a pretty good tank by focusing on AC and grabbing Parry, for example. Or at least a very survivable buff bot. :) It's...

    OSR Commander (Warlord) for the OSR?

    Fair. Plus all the commands are still limited to X uses per day, so it's not like the ability to use them every round in combat will exist until the teen levels. Even then, some commands have non-combat uses, so some uses will be spent there at well. Falling back on their attacks will be...

    OSR Commander (Warlord) for the OSR?

    Welp, I just deleted two paragraphs because you said basically what I was going to say. :) Agreed, fighter seems more robust as a damage dealer, warlord offers solid passive support. I might like to see some commands that replace attacks instead of entire actions to support a less "lazylord"...

    OSR Commander (Warlord) for the OSR?

    Nothing jumps out as being obviously problematic. Does damage generally scale per attack on a level basis in your game? Commander's Strike might be too weak at low levels and too strong at high levels if it does not. Does Tactical Master replace both Dex and Str for attacks, or do you have to...
