    D&D 5E Help on a "Turning the Tide" spell

    I have an idea of what I see as a high level (6+) spell, with a simple enough mechanic: "Until the end of your next turn, you and all your allies have advantage on all attacks rolls, saving throws and ability checks, while all your enemies have disadvantage on attack rolls, saving throws and...

    D&D 5E Fraal/Greys as a PC race

    They were a core PC race in Alternity, the Fraal being the alien race that resembles the typically "Grey" alien seen by many who've reported they've been abducted by aliens. They've generally being a highly psionic PC race so I think most of their abilities would fall under that. So I'm trying...

    D&D General Campaign setting in a Gas Giant World with Floating Islands

    I'm pondering a world that's a "Gas Giant" possibly even the size of Jupiter, but not like a real one that would be toxic and very deadly. But one where it's quite livable to be in and most of the people live on floating islands or earth motes of various sizes. And that the main method of...

    D&D General [Spoilers] Which Situations From The Suicide Squad Might Have Happened in Your Games?

    This is more about the current Suicide Squad movie from James Gunn and not the previous one from David Ayer or the series that's existed on and off since the late 80s that both of those movies are based on. While I feel having an explosive implant to force the party to do something might be...

    D&D 5E Who are the current Archfey?

    The Wild Beyond the Witchlight might be changing a few things already written about Feywild, since Domains of Delight might be a sort of new concept (though I think there certainly were Fey realms mentioned somewhere). But who currently are the Archfey? PHB gives the names: Prince of Frost...

    D&D 5E Flumphs as a PC race

    So it's wonderful that the most enduring "joke" monster actually ended up in the Monster Manual. But what if they were a PC race. So going through their statblock I've tried to come up with something for a Flumph PC... Flumph Flumphs are jellyfish like creatures which often reside in the...

    D&D 5E Dreamscapes and Re-invigorating the Ethereal Plane

    In 2e Planescape there was A Guide to the Ethereal Plane enough material to fill a 96 page book on the subject of the Ethereal Plane, it had Demiplanes, Dreamscapes, Protomatter, anything incorporeal and a bunch of mysterious locations. But in 3e demiplanes where made to be connected to any...

    D&D 5E Are humanoid mono-cultures being replaced with the Rule of Three?

    I certainly don't like mono-cultures for any humanoid, but the trend seems we're going from a single monolithic culture to 3 different cultures in many cases. It's like the Rule of Three moved from beyond Planescape. I guess it's the easiest number to have as it's, "here's the one you know...

    D&D 5E Simic Hybrids Outside of Ravnica

    There's 5 races in Guildmasters Guide to Ravnica: Centaurs, Minotaurs, Loxodon, Vedalken and Simic Hybrids. Centaurs and Minotaurs are in the Monster Manual and assumed to be in most worlds. Loxodon might be in Forgotten Realms as the Loxo, and the Loxodon like the Vedalken are in a few other...

    D&D 5E An Orcs(or Goblin)-ploitation Urban Campaign

    So an idea for a campaign where all of the PCs are various types Goblinoids or Orcs, with Half-Orc being the only PHB race allowed. It would be mostly an urban setting that takes place in a large cosmopolitan Human city like Sharn from Eberron, with mixed with various races that tolerates, but...

    D&D 5E Is Ray of Frost d8's or d6's in damage?

    I have one of the first printings of the PHB where it says that Ray of Frost does d6's for damage. But looking it up in D&D Beyond it says it does d8's in damage. So I looked in the errata to see if this was changed, but there's no mention of Ray of Frost being changed anywhere in that. So...

    D&D 5E Ideas for all-Planetouched groups and their characters

    This is an expansion on my thread on Planetouched Lineages where I've put together comprehensive writeups on the various planetouched as lineages with a bunch of character customization and ideas that span from 2nd edition all the way to 5th. With all the things I've written, it's time to think...

    D&D 5E Bigby's Back Hand as a cantrip?

    So for a spell that is also colloquially known by some as "Bigby's Bitchslap", what would the statblock of a cantrip from the Wizard obsessed with hands be like? Like range 30 feet? Force damage?

    D&D 5E Could Theros and Tasha's Cauldron the way they're going to handle real-world pantheons?

    Real-world pantheons in D&D have generally been a mess and usually something regulated to an appendix if at all. Never been accurate historically, and often based on certain dubious interpretations, like the D&D Norse pantheon being strongly based on Snorri Sturluson's interpretation of Norse...

    D&D 5E The Planetouched Lineages (Tieflings/Aasimar/Genasi/Axani/Cansin/Liminaire)

    Note that all updates are within the original post With some of the changes influenced by Tasha's Cauldron, I'm looking into a rework of the various Planetouched varieties such as Tieflings, Aasimar and Genasi. I'm looking generally looking into one with variants and customization, that some of...

    D&D 5E Dhampir PCs as Vampire Hunters

    Since the other thread is not about any of the lineages in that Unearthed Arcana article, thinking of the recent (as in the last 40 years) examples of Dhampir we can all point to characters like Alucard (Castlevania), Vampire Hunter D and Blade (Marvel Comics) as examples of actual Dhampir...

    D&D General An Experimental Dual Timeline Campaign?

    As a narrative experiment how would one handle a dual timeline campaign where it's the "same" characters in both timelines, that are roughly 20 years apart. In the earlier timeline they start as 1st level characters, and in the later timeline they're 10th level or higher. It's the same...

    D&D 5E Variant Monk that uses Strength instead of Wisdom?

    I'm pondering a Monk variant that uses Strength instead of Wisdom for things like the unarmored AC bonus (their muscles are hard like steel) and save DCs (or ability mod times per day if they have such a subclass for that). But I feel other than that change there maybe should be at least one...

    D&D 5E XCOM-like rules for a modern or sci-fi version of the 5e rules?

    With the common trend of nearly all turn-based video games with tactical combat to have cover (half and full) and overwatch as an action that seems to have started in XCOM: Enemy Unknown. I'm wondering if these things brought over to a system with a 5e base require new rules/changes or just the...

    D&D 5E Some thoughts on the Art in Tasha's Cauldron

    Now that I finally have the book I'm generally impressed by the art. There's a few things I noticed, first of all some of the continuing attempts at more diversity in the art including Non-Human people of Colour such as the Elven Aristocrat or the Telepathic Bard, as well as the Human...
