    D&D 5E Mearls on other settings

    Below you can see three very interesting tweets by Mike Mearls regarding the non-published dnd settings (even Spelljammer). Although he doesn't mention how it supposed to support these settings, it seems to me that it will gonna be a holistic approach.

    D&D 5E Telekinesis damage?

    Here is the scene. There is a mage on the top of the cliff and casts Telekinesis on a 1000pounds boulder and drops it down to the party. Lets say the height is 30 feet. How would you handle a situation like this? Attack roll? Dexterity saving throw for the party member(s)? And what damage the...

    Please help me find a defining game mechanic for my homebrew world

    As the title says I am searching for a mechanic which will have a universal impact in my campaign setting. As universal gaming mechanic I mean something like the corruption/hope points of the The One Ring game or the madness checks from Cthulhu's Chaosium etc. Something that all the players will...

    Please critique my cultural caste (racial) traits

    In my homebrew world i don't have different races (elves, dwarves, etc), but different cultures which work exactly as races. One of these cultures is Chattigar, which is very strictly caste based. The higher caste, Aatma, is related with the spiritual guiding of Chattigar and most of its...

    Hey, I am searching to polish my homebrew material giving it a more official look. Do you know a template that is similar to the 5e layout/edit with the parchment texture? I know the template of DMGuild but is mostly oriented for adventures and there is no parchment texture (the parchment...

    D&D 5E Lucky feat (the defense part) question

    The aforementioned quote means that you have to see the dm's roll first or you have to roll and then the dm will tell you what he/she rolled? If you can see the roll beforehand then it would pretty much beneficial almost every time you use the feat. Otherwise there is a strong possibility to...

    D&D 5E Dmsguild and known rpg companies

    I wanted to open a thread regarding the relation of the dmsguild and known rpg companies. Do you think they will embrace this "platform" to produce (FRealms and more) rpg products? Is it worth it for them? Or do you think that will be used only (or mostly) for non professionals? It would be...

    D&D 5E In which setting the next adventure path will take place?

    It comes more clear that the next adventure path will not be in Forgotten Realms. The timing seems to be perfect: they have just delivered the DMGuild in order everyone to be able to make their favorite Realms adventures/lore etc. in order to focus to the publication of a new setting. We have...

    D&D 5E How WotC will approach the campaign settings?

    Jeremy Crawford said that the core setting isn’t the Realms. The core setting is the multiverse. This tweet probably explains why we have not seen a Forgotten Realms or another campaign setting. I think they plan to produce something different from what we are used to, but I cannot still...

    In my new campaign i intent to put muls as a playing race. Although i have never played/bought Dark Sun, I always loved the concept of them. Do you have any suggestion of what racial abilities would muls have in 5th edition? I would imagine something like: Muls: +2 Con, +1 Str Advantage on...

    D&D 5E icons of the realms miniatures booster

Actually we know only the 4-5 dragons and a couple of other minis which I found on this site http://www.minisgallery.com/dnd1.htm . In previous cases we had the whole...
