    D&D General Are Hit Points Meat? (Redux): D&D Co-Creator Saw Hit Points Very Differently

    I've seen numerous DMs do that, too. I've also seen many(not as many) start at 3rd or higher level. Pretty much since 3e came out. I saw 0 DMs allow higher level before 3e. I think that if the DMG and PHB had sidebars about starting at higher levels, more DMs would take it to heart and allow...

    D&D General Are Hit Points Meat? (Redux): D&D Co-Creator Saw Hit Points Very Differently

    Okay. Let's say a lot of people do miss it. Does it really matter? A lot of people won't miss it, and if you do what's the worst that will happen? You'll start at level one until someone notices and then you'll mentally smack yourself in the head and maybe make the choice to start at 3rd...

    D&D 5E What are the Most Useless Combinations in D&D 5e?

    I may make this item at some point and add some range to it. As a magic item I can see it being a 20 or 30 foot thrown item.

    D&D 5E What are the Most Useless Combinations in D&D 5e?

    I was thinking it would be perfect for a bounty hunter.

    Ooh! A flaming net! :unsure:

    D&D 5E What are the Most Useless Combinations in D&D 5e?

    I'm going to go Crawford on you here. When you hit a large or smaller creature it is restrained(caught in the net) until freed. Returning brings the net back to you, but doesn't say it frees the creature, so it doesn't. You have a creature in a net in your hand. Seems pretty good to me.

    D&D 5E Give me your strongest characters

    1e: 7th level cleric - Duke Fralin. I rolled 8's his first 5 levels, so he had 40 hit points with no con bonus. 2e: Meldikar Boartusk - half-elven 7th level ranger/5th level cleric. He went on a quest to become a cleric after the 1st level, which is why his cleric level is lower. 3e: Duke...

    D&D General Crown Chimeras

    I don't think so, but one of your dragon chimeras could become a dracolich after the fact.

    D&D General A weird idea for a setting where raise dead/resurrection is used for finite death sentance punishment

    You'd have to fundamentally change the way raises and the afterlife works. First, people can and often do opt to just stay in whatever afterlife that they are in, so it can become permanent for a simple theft. Second, people don't remember their lives while they are in the afterlife, so from...

    D&D General Are Hit Points Meat? (Redux): D&D Co-Creator Saw Hit Points Very Differently

    Skip/overlook, sure. Fail to understand something incredibly simple that they read, probably not. If they see and read that box, they're not going to be confused.

    D&D General The Role and Purpose of Evil Gods

    The PHB lifestyle expenses are for PCs, not NPCs. An NPC will have their house and garden to defray expenses. If an adventurer wants to live a certain lifestyle, it's going to cost more, because they are going to be paying for inns, food prepared by chefs, maintaining your arms and armor, etc...

    D&D General The Role and Purpose of Evil Gods

    "Except for very rare exceptions, small villages probably won't even have locks that are that good. You don't need much more for the town drunk or some locals who got into a fight." There's my post right above. Show me the "well actually." I'm very clearly saying that except for very rare...

    D&D General Are Hit Points Meat? (Redux): D&D Co-Creator Saw Hit Points Very Differently

    I think you are underestimating the intelligence of people. Nobody is going to be confused by a sidebar(box) explaining that you can start at level three to give the players more survivability, such that a cat is unable to kill them like it could potentially kill a level 1 PC. They're going to...

    D&D General The Role and Purpose of Evil Gods

    Or just so he can kill the PC. A murder in a jail cell is public and will bring many probably unwanted questions and investigations. That assassin that's coming for the PC in session 5, though...

    D&D General The Role and Purpose of Evil Gods

    No. It's neither unbelievable that a corrupt official would murder a witness OR unbelievable that he would not, because eyes are on the witness too closely or some other plausible reason. It would depend on how powerful the official was, how powerful his opponents were, and so on. None of...

    D&D General The Role and Purpose of Evil Gods

    Again, there are very plausible ways for it to happen. In a small town it's plausible for the prisoner's hands to be bound by rope as he is being led to execution, and plausible for him to escape those bonds, run and after a long chase escape. Prisoners escape from modern jails every year here...

    D&D 5E Help me setup "Clerical Insurance"

    Right, which is why I say it should be a church of the god of wealth or merchants. A church of the god of healing is unlikely to charge someone in real need.

    D&D 5E Help me setup "Clerical Insurance"

    Yeah. I mean, cure lights and such are easy spells with no real cost, so probably the low end of 1st level spells. 10g. The peasants are unlikely to need anywhere near 72 of them in a year, which leaves plenty for profit and the the even rarer higher level healing spell needed.

    D&D 5E Help me setup "Clerical Insurance"

    In the services section it lists unskilled labor at 2sp per day, which is a good average to go with. Some of those 100 will be skilled, but I think that 2sp per day for a lot of peasant jobs is high. So those 100 peasants are making 20g per day, or 600g per month. A single 1st level spell can...

    TSR LaNasa is back, and working with TSR Hobbies

    I'm dropping it now. I responded to @Faolyn privately, because I don't want to derail things here. :)
