    D&D 5E New WotC Survey! Learn About A New D&D Product!

    An updated character builder no worse than the 4e one but with more open formats for exporting would probably be something I would consider subscribing to. Being able to use a character builder with a subscription to export characters to Roll20 would also increase the chances of me trying a...

    D&D 5E New WotC Survey! Learn About A New D&D Product!

    Based on my experience with how WotC handled the 4e thing once 5e came I would be very cautious about getting another subscription for a WotC product. Maybe if it turned out very convenient and also allowed me to easily export a pdf or similar of my character. I currently have multiple 4e...

    D&D 5E PC wants to become undead

    If you want that story, then maybe let the effect become that the character becomes a Damphir (but with no ageing) rather than a full Monster Manual vampire. Could be an easy way to balance it.

    D&D 5E PC wants to become undead

    So, it seems that WotC published a good answer in the latest Unearthed Arcana, after the last reply to this thread. https://dnd.wizards.com/articles/unearthed-arcana/gothic-lineages There are some partially undead lineages there, including rules for changing your original race during a...

    D&D 5E Teleportation circles costs *how* much?!

    In academia you have to write a master thesis to get a master's degree. The equivalent for artisans in medevial guilds was making a masterwork to go from journeyman to master (and a journeyman test or work before that to go from apprentice to journeyman). I haven't read the thread closely...

    D&D 5E How to role play warlock

    It sounds to me that you want help with "how to play a less-than-devoted servant of the Raven Queen" rather than anything connected to the specific class. The story you have given could work just as well with a cleric or paladin as the class. The two central questions I think you and your DM...

    D&D 5E Paladin Code (3.X) vs Paladin Oaths (5e)

    I have only played 4e (where I can't remember any limits on Paladins) and 5e, so I have no first-hand knowledge of the strict codes from earlier editions. However, I am utterly convinced that the Oaths are made the way they are specifically to allow players to play a Paladin without constantly...

    D&D 5E Warforged Protector Unit

    I guess that extra attack won't be an important factor of you finish around the time it becomes a factor. Multiple levels of fighter might thus not be the best for your concept. However, staying with a single class will probably be more useful than spreading yourself too thin. I would therefore...

    D&D 5E Does “Whack-A-Mole” Healing really happen in games?

    I can't find a way to vote on the phone app, but what we saw in my group: We had a part of a campaign where the DM would only use deadly encounters. Quite quickly we ended up having whack-a-cleric, because with a Forge cleric, a Grave cleric, a rogue and a wizard we could not keep up with blows...

    D&D 5E Monks as ''tanks''

    The one potential pitfall I can see is the monk no longer having as much incentive to use all that mobility. That is probably not a problem at your table, but I think it could play into why the monks are the way they are. My impression is that both monks and rogues are expected to be...

    D&D 5E Is Tasha's slowing down your combat?

    Figuring out how to put the start block in Roll20 took a bit of time, but not nearly as much time as understanding the encounter setup in the published adventure. Also, any spell with more than "roll X save for half or no damage" tends to take a similar amount of time for us the first time...

    D&D 5E I Calculated CRs for the Tasha Summon Stat Blocks

    To expand: Story or narrative. There might not be much mechanical difference between a summoned fiend, celestial or elemental, but it makes a lot of difference for the story if a character often calls on fiends to help or if they make use of elementals. Even the availability on spell lists makes...

    D&D General Do I need an attitude adjustment? (They're gonna nova the BBEG)

    So, the party either crashed the wedding or used the invitation to mostly do a no-show and loot the place instead? Also, they ignored the extra invite? It sounds like the master of the house would have to postpone the ceremony and bring some of the other guests with him to stop that nonsense...

    D&D General How did you pay total for your PHB? How much did you pay for a D&D book?

    I live in Stockholm, Sweden. For Tasha I paid 450 SEK for the book and 50 SEK for shipping from a store in Stockholm. The shipping is comparable to what it would cost me to get to the store and back. 450 SEK is about 53 USD. Mostly I think the local game stores in Sweden tend to stay close to...

    D&D 5E Custom races and tasha’s

    The variant features should not influence feats at all. The custom lineages are entirely up to a discussion with the DM. I would default to "only new races", but I don't remember how clear the phrasing is.

    D&D 5E Psi Warrior and Unarmed Fighting

    It seems similar to Paladins not being able to smite with weapons. Based on that, my guess is that preventing the concept you mentioned and others like it to keep monks being the best monks and fighters mostly using weapons is the point of the rule.

    D&D 5E Ranger Primal Companion Options

    Wow, I had not realised quite how robust the new design is. You probably just demonstrated that future books, DM's Guild and homebrew can easily expand the subclass without messing up balance or really modifying the subclass again. There is clearly room for growth, but getting that growth seems...

    D&D 5E TCoE - Rogue's Steady Aim

    This was explicitly mentioned in one of the D&D Beyond YouTube videos about the UA as one case for using it. about 1:20 into the video. Other thoughts and reasons are also discussed.

    D&D 5E Tasha: Now on D&D Beyond, Roll20, Fantasy Grounds

    My impression based on what else the new sorcerers got is that the spells basically used all the room for first level features, with the remaining features mostly being ribbons. So I would not want to see the feature for all sorcerers in a game where aberrant mind or clockwork soul would show...

    D&D 5E Booming Blade and Green-Flame Blade Nerfed in TCoE

    Both GFB and BB work with warcaster. However, for GFB it only works if the optional damage to a second target is not used.
