    D&D General "Hot" take: Aesthetically-pleasing rules are highly overvalued

    I wonder if....perhaps I still don’t understand. Is the Meta-aesthetic we are referring to self referencing aesthetic or post hoc rule creation that unintentionally or intentionally creates an implied rule? What I mean is...does the difference between weapon attack, melee weapon attack...

    D&D General Unpopular Opinion?: D&D is a terrible venue for horror

    When I think of horror as a genre it is about trappings and tropes. D&D does this fine. When I think of horror as a feeling. That is created in the minds of the players. It is from the interplay between the people. To me there is a difference between terror and horror. Terror being an external...

    D&D 5E Bards have an identity problem!

    No, and problem isn’t necessarily the bard here. The problem might be the idea of a support character in 5e. All of the characters in 5e are so strong that support is redundant. The things bards used to do aren’t needed anymore. On average a first level fighter can hit any monster in the MM...

    WotC Does anyone remember the year that WotC Forums for D&D first went live?

    That sounds about right. IIRC it was after the release of 3e and for years edition wars raged.

    Level Up (A5E) 3.99 Edition

    I would say 3e saves Are classic. AD&D saves are vintage.

    Level Up (A5E) What is the vision of the high level fighter?

    Give the mundanes strange power. I mean you don’t get.... Bitten by a werewolf Charmed by a succubus Breathed on by a dragon Diseased by a mummy Bled on by a demon Burned on by an ooze Swallowed by a worm Polymorphed by a wizard Healed by a cleric Paralyzed by a ghoul Sickened by a troglodyte...

    Level Up (A5E) What is the vision of the high level fighter?

    Magic needs a nerf...Or mundanes need a rather stupendous buff. Level 20 fighter should be like Doom Slayer dismembering fiends with his bare hands and healing from it.

    D&D General Why DPR Sucks: Discussing Whiteroom Theorycrafting

    @MwaO In other, other words Derek Jeter was metagaming.

    D&D General How early is too early for planar adventures?

    The types of entertainment they consume would be helpful. They may have no interest in planar stuff.

    D&D General How Was Your Last Session?

    Very good session last Saturday. My three players made characters in record time. A crime themed D&D campaign. Set in Eberron played like Shadowrun/GTA V. Players had a blast. I did too.

    D&D General A paladin just joined the group. I'm a necromancer.

    Step one: Wait and see. Your friend’s paladin might not have a problem with your stuff. If they do not have a problem you can stop here. If they do go to... Step two: One of you must relent (or repent) logically this should be you. Paladins are a zealous lot. Pushing at this point by you is...

    D&D 5E Can you help me stat up Sarevok from BG1?

    Sarevok is my favorite. It looks quite good. I would probably change the sword of chaos though. Sarevok is probably attacking 3 times a round. Making saves for each one feels like a bit too much upkeep for the damage/debuff it does.

    D&D 4E Presentation vs design... vs philosophy

    I have made two characters in PF 2. I found the process....awful. PF 2 in play is good. The character creation process is just not my cup of tea. I would rather a randomly generated character than go through that IRS audit again. FWIW I used a computer program to get it done if I had been asked...

    D&D General Lamest D&D classes all time

    I hate to say it, but I think I am a Factotum. It’s not very glamorous. Fun fact: there are phobias of Beggars and Clowns but not one of Fighting-men.

    D&D 2E AD&D 2e - Player's Options ?

    We used them. I haven’t looked at them in years though. Maybe I will this weekend.
