    5.5E First playtest thread! One D&D Character Origins.

    It's possible that they didn't just include that part of the backgrounds with the initial playtest drop.

    D&D 5E Common house rules for 5e.

    I have a few houserules (some nicked from 3rd party sources). These all come from Fateforge's system, but some have been modified: Wounds (modified to allow a Con save to avoid because they are exceedingly deadly). Critical Hits/Misses on Magic spells Critical Hits/Misses on Saving Throws...

    D&D 5E Has D&D spoiled you on other RPGs?

    Slightly yes, but mostly no. D&D has been a mainstay for me and my friends for decades. However we do enjoy other games (GURPS, Cypher System, Traveller, Palladium (don't judge), WoD, Kult, and Pathfinder among others) and try to switch up as often as possible. That said I would be lying if I...

    D&D General Digital Only Edition

    I voted no for a few specific reasons. I enjoy online access and PDFs because they can make searches easier, but they also can bog down a game if there's slow wifi/internet or the site is experiencing issues. Paper books don't have that issue. Also one of my players is mostly blind and has...

    D&D General One Piece of Art- What D&D Art Inspired You to Love a Class?

    First Edition Ranger was my first class and love. Some of it was from Aragorn, but most was from Tanis. This picture sealed it for me.

    D&D General One Piece of Art V (Places)- What Piece of D&D Art Inspired You to Love a Place

    This piece by Elmore grabbed me for places. So little actual art, but the story is endless. It tells a story full of intrigue and danger without the sweeping character panorama that seemed so popular at the time. Still gives me chills.

    D&D General One Piece of Art II (Monsters)- What D&D Art Inspired You to Love a Monster?

    A LOT of monster specific art work over the ages made me fall in love with D&D. Some more than others. So many evocative prints, regardless of if they have color or not. I remember being awed by the Giants and Dragons, frightened by the Githyanki and Sons of Kyuss, viscerally loathing the demons...

    D&D General "I have had a 'D&D Hangover'" (a poll)

    I've been playing almost non-stop since 90 (or so), including running games at a local game store and also managing their gaming inventory/TT employees for a time. Almost all of that gaming was as a DM. At one point in 2003 through 2004 (not long after leaving that position) I took a step back...
