    D&D 5E Good Lord - I'm Taking Over 20+ Teen D&D Players

    As someone watching a lot of Critical Role recently, as much as I would love to play in their game. Matt does things I would not agree with or particularly like. It is just the good elements are so good. I would put up with it. Critical Role has aspects optimised for viewer pleasure than...

    🤷‍♂️ well in that case they are bloody confident about the first one.

    D&D Movie/TV D&D Beyond Movie Survey

    A lot of the questions I got were about the inclusion of specific game elements in the movie. Of the kind that would worry me, if I was really invested (well i kind am but there has been enough crap in this space). I am of the belief that a movie based on a game franchise should be a good...

    D&D Movie/TV D&D Beyond Movie Survey

    Kind of wierd to have a survey about a movie where principal photography has been shot, is it not?

    D&D General What is a "spell"? What isn't?

    Not to me. To me the wizard is running a diagnostic and relying on training for interpretation but the cleric is given information by their god but mechanically it is the same because the cleric needs to interpret the signs.

    D&D General What is a "spell"? What isn't?

    Well yeah that is the whole point. I will admit that while I was heading that way my self I was also influenced by Warspell: The Merge a book by Gorg Huff and Paula Goodlett

    5.5E The future of edition changes and revisions

    I think we are going to have to agree to differ, at a minimum for me to regard something as an edition change to PHB and DMG would have to be replaced with some significant changes. Colo's and Mordenkainen's going out of print while the basic rules of the game is defined by the 2014 rule books...

    D&D General What is a "spell"? What isn't?

    My own head canon is that all all non divine spells are rituals that. For casters like Wizards, Warlocks and Sorcerers they are rituals that act as templates to shape magic that are held by the caster in their magic aura and released by words and gestures. So for example, with regards to...

    5.5E The future of edition changes and revisions

    What is stopping you using the older material. What old stuff specifically no longer allowed?

    5.5E The future of edition changes and revisions

    Here we run into the nomenclature of "differences of small changes". I do not regard changes like new version of the monster or even stuff like the Tasha changes for the ranger as invalidating older content. You can build a Hunter Ranger in my game and even replace Primeval Awareness and keep...

    D&D 5E Explain: Mordenkainen's Monsters of the Multiverse

    Well it is forgotten for a reason :D

    5.5E The future of edition changes and revisions

    From 3.0 to 3.5 there was a strong financial incentive to obsolete the 3.0 books and sell the whole line back again to the same audience. The lack of market growth and revenue stream from the splat mill required it. Now there is significant revenue from licence arrangements with Roll20 and...

    Managing My Expectations? (+)

    @Retreater I have been following your post mortems and this confirms, to me, that there is a mismatch between your expectations and your players. I was going to suggest that since they seemed to be a bit passive to rail road them hard or a classic dungeon crawl but it seems you have tried that...

    D&D 5E Explain: Mordenkainen's Monsters of the Multiverse

    It is not just that, speculation in advance of the facts will put forth versions of the mechanics based on hearsay and that gets entrenched and adds to the controversy.
