    5E Conundrum: Ranged attack sequence/cover bonus for players

    you simply draw a line from your shooter to the target - if it passes through any friend or foe, the target gets +2 to AC... so yes, B2 gets +2 to AC bc of cover

    5E Conundrum: Ranged attack sequence/cover bonus for players

    they already have access to fireball!!! :ROFLMAO:💥 and yes, well, in principle they have had the same situation as the monsters, when it's the monsters' turn, they all act one after another, therefore when it's the players turn, they just act according to their Initiative, but equally, one...

    5E Conundrum: Ranged attack sequence/cover bonus for players

    yeah, my understanding is that RAW in 5e there is no penalty just for shooting into melee (that's probably 3.5 muscle memory), but there is a penalty if there is no clear line of sight. ie, if there is a melee happening in front of your target, the target gets partial cover (normally +2 to AC)

    5E Conundrum: Ranged attack sequence/cover bonus for players

    Interesting how even after 20 years of playing RPGs, new basic rule questions crop up...: So the PC group gets into a fight with a bunch of bugbears and goblins in a long 10 foot wide tunnel with corners etc, where it's more advantageous for the goblins to shoot their short bows than go melee...

    Duration/Existence of Spell-like/Supernatural Abilities in 5e?

    So last session this happened: A stone statue in dungeon, which looked like a petrified person, was converted back via major restoration. Unfortunately, said person immediately transformed into a major demon, which let go a roar and started attacking the group. We ageed on normal initiative, as...

    Use True Polymorph to re-shape stats of PC?

    Hi - lots of threads on True Polymorph, but none dealing with this specific question: The role and abilities of my PC (Moon Druid) have changed at higher levels, and it's not something I anticipated when creating the Character on level 7. Essentially, at higher levels, I find CON has become...

    3E/3.5 Earth Glide - 5E vs 3.5 - How does your table play it? Esp Moon Druids?

    Thanks, yeah, it is a hold over from 3.5, that said, all the elementals have their "thing" (in terms of capabilities in addition to pure direct damage output) in the right setting, the water elemental is pretty powerful in water with whelm and grapple etc, the fire elemental deals damage to...

    3E/3.5 Earth Glide - 5E vs 3.5 - How does your table play it? Esp Moon Druids?

    According to RAW, Earth Glide, especially for Moon Druids with ability to Wild Shape into Elementals, has been significantly nerfed due to the following limitation in 5E (which previously did not exist): "The elemental can burrow through non magical, unworked earth and stone." While the non...

    DMs - How do you treat Healing Word?

    I have observed much discussion about the supposedly overpowered nature of Healing Word, because of its range and bonus action deployment. What I don't understand: in a melee fight with multiple foes, it's super likely that, in the order of play, a foe comes between the healer and the healed...

    A Question for Resurrection Connoisseurs

    So here is a peculiar situation: our Barbarian has died by charging ahead into a fight where the group was hopelessly outgunned. He basically was down after 1 round. (The mage decided to teleport the rest of us out.) As the Barbarian was in the grip of a Salamander, he automatically failed his...

    5E MPMB's D&D 5e Character Tools

    Hi morepurplemorebetter, Thank you for the quick reply. Re 1: Exporting the old data from the old sheet does not work for me and probably a lot of others either, as it required Adobe Pro, which not many people have... Second, thank you for the detailed clarifications. Taking a step back, i...
