    D&D 5E Brain Storming a campaign (school of chaos)

    SO maybe some of you remember my style is to while running one game work on 1 or 2 new world/story ideas to pitch to my players... we run about year long campaigns (longest not with standing 2e/in school was 2 1/2 year campaign shortest was 4 months but we average about a year or so per...

    D&D 5E Does this start PUN PUN?

    Okay, so I have been a way a while, but I was under the (maybe mistaken) impression that all of the major loop holes from 3e/3.5 where closed... but now I start seeing crazy things and I am left wondering if power builds are back. (Breif history: Pun Pun was an all powerful kobold that had NI...

    D&D 5E Spell balance

    So wizards get LOTs of spells over the level, but is any 1 spell really a problem? I mean if you didn't have a whole pyramid of spells would powerful spells given out as spell like abilities really break anything? Once in 3e and again 2 campaigns back here in 5e I had players that had Wish...

    Global Enhancements as Treasure

    Ok, so I have been working on a few new campaign settings for upcoming games (my current game is not over yet) and I had an idea to run by. I am ‘spam/cross posting’ this in my middle earth thread and a new one…the reason is this may be used for that but maybe for others too. Here is what I...

    Ranger Warlock Subclass idea

    OK, so I have a player that wants a way to play a ranger type character that is slightly more warlock then druid. His concept is "I want to be a ranger that sells his soul to a wood witch or hag and gets some cool spells out of it" he went on to say he wanted something like the eldritch knight...

    Unearthed Arcana Unearthed Arcana August: Races of Ravnica

    I don't know modern MtG or Ravnica other then what we have been talking about on here and at D&D the last few weeks...but quick look I like this. Vedalken sound like I could totally play the blue elves like 'mystic elf' and 'magician of black chaos' from yugioh. I think I really like the race...

    Work shoping CR (Very low magic world)

    So here is a great example of an OPPS…I was aiming for a CR 13. I think I made an awesome boss monster (one I thought might need to become legendary and gain some layer actions, also may be served with having some undead or the like in the encounter… what I ended up with is Defensive CR ½ (so a...

    D&D 5E Middle Earth and aSoIaF martial campaign

    TLDR: Thoughts on a rare magic with no casters game? So one of my big regrets with 5e (even though it is what I am playing I think 4e was my fav edition) was the backslide on the 'martial' classes. We often in the games I play, run and see around here have 2/3 to 100% casters. The last campaign...

    Campaign work...monk/barbarian

    So last year I put up an idea I was playing with for a new campaign. So far that campaign worked out pretty well and we are approaching the half way point of the campaign So it's time to start brain storming a new campaign and I had a strange thought. What if you swaped the flavor text but not...

    D&D 5E DM advice: Necromancers, Undead, and Attunement

    Hey guys... I have a PC playing a necromancer. He animated 2 dead gnolls as skeletons. He now wants to take a magic breast plate and put it on one. The +1 just makes since would transfer to the gnoll...no issue. However it has a power if you attune to it that can be activated. My question...

    D&D 5E Mystic playtest...ugg this class is all over the place

    ok, to be fair my game is not average. I have 2 powergamed melee combatants, one not powergamed but decent melee combatant, and a wizard on top of my mystic... I also have the problem that the player who is playtesting the mystic is a complainer, he thinks fights are too tough when no PC gets...

    D&D 5E Building an Adventure (Flavor text)

    Hey guys. As some of you know I am an aspiring writer. One of my mentors suggested since I love this game and play so much I should get my feet wet with writing adventures for the DMGuild. So another writer friend and I are working on a series of adventures and going to put them up soon. I...

    SPiderman Homecoming (spoilers)

    So I wont put any major spoilers in this opening thread, but I open up to anyone who saw it... I liked it, a fun twist on the same basic spiderman story we have read/watched many times. It has strong themes, and a good premise... My only real complaint is too much reliance on stark tech, and...

    D&D 5E New 5e Campaign idea, want some diffrent thoughts on it

    So my group works by me pitching 2-3 game ideas, we vote then that will be the next campaign, when things go well we play for 10ish levels and about a year (in theory meeting weekly but especially end of year we miss weeks). Every once in a while (every 3-4 campaigns) someone takes a shot at...

    D&D 5E West world: the ultimate game/RPG

    So I don't know how many of you LARP, or MMO as well as table top game, but I assume some cross over. I ask because the new HBO series is some strange mix of the three. It's called west world and it's based on a 70's movie. The basic concept is that there is a vacation resort somewhere in the...

    D&D 5E What do you do when your players are gunshy?

    Ok so we have had a problem in my Tuesday night game for almost 5 years now. We start a game/campaign strong. We have some great adventures, then at some random point the players just stop adventuring. The normal answer I have is to say "OK, so lets start a new campaign." This time though...
