    D&D 5E What is up with the popularity of watching other D&D groups play the game?

    I have found that some of the D&D play shows on youtube are much better than what you find on television.

    D&D 5E Adding Additional Skills to the game

    I have added skills. There are 80 active skills, 120 occupational/background skills, and language skills which are dependent upon the campaign. This allows my players more creativity in writing up their characters.

    A human with genetic dwarfism. He does not know if he is a dwarf or human, he has only just escaped from the travelling carnival where a cruel half-orc made him perform acrobatic tricks.

    D&D General Typical procedure after character death?

    The extremely ugly cleric/wizard takes the "beautiful" parts of the body to make a flesh golem. It's how he gets his romantic dates without having to go to the old Roll a D12 inn of the Shady Lady.

    D&D General The Appearance of Female Goblins

    Some might say that goblins look like the creepy kids from NOS4A2.

    D&D 5E NPC party competing with PCs

    Not so much as a rival but rather as a group of "heroes" doing the side quests that the players do not. The players choose to investigate sightings of orcs while ignoring farmer Brown's plight with bandits. The bandits are then handled by the other group through narrative. This creates a "news"...

    D&D General So what colour are your dwarfs and elfs?

    Elves are bright and beautiful. (Pick a runway model) Elves have three ancient "clan" groups Light Grey and Dark. Light elves worship the stars they first saw when awakening in the world. Grey elves worship nature spirits. Dark elves worship whoever gives them power. Dwarves are beings of...

    D&D 5E How many rounds do most of your combats last?

    @Flamestrike What poundage is the bow the girl is using. Definitely not the same as a medieval war bow which is what the game is modeled on.

    D&D General Is Healing Magic Painful?

    Whether it is or is not, is determined by the source from which it is received. The goddess of comfort and cookies would likely include anesthesia. The bloody god of war I think would expect someone to suck it up and drive on with the mission.

    D&D 5E How many rounds do most of your combats last?

    Time in our game is different; we have 1 minute combat rounds, each round has six 10 second combat phases. There are two weapons tracks. Melee attacks per phase, ranged attacks per round. This was done to better simulate the rate of fire for missile weapons when compared to how many times a...

    D&D 5E You encounter 20 orcs ...

    There are alternatives to fighting. Perhaps the players could in someway encourage the orcs to fight one another over some issue? Remember LotR when the orcs fight over Frodo's shiny shirt.

    My players think they are sophisticated.

    D&D General Movie plots for your D&D game

    Older films that "flopped" have been inspirational. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flesh_and_Blood_(1985_film)
