    D&D 5E How crunchy is D&D 5E

    I voted 5, but since 5E can be just as easily played with the hardcovers or the online free basic rules or the Starter or Essentials box sets, I thought about rating it a 4.

    Worlds of Design: Barbarians at the Gates – Part 1

    You don't even have to look West, just look at the Trail of Tears, where several tribes in the southeastern US were force-marched out to Oklahoma. Or the whole European conquest of the Atlantic coast of the Americas, long before the US became an independent country. Gold, Glory, and God.

    D&D 5E Can you case feather fall if you are not holding a feather or a focus?

    Yes, a lot of it is abstracted away, as Jeremy Crawford said in a Sage Advice, but you still have to reach into the pouch for the components. https://www.sageadvice.eu/is-the-intent-behind-a-component-pouch-that-you-reach-into/

    D&D 5E Can you case feather fall if you are not holding a feather or a focus?

    It may be a reaction spell, but does that really matter it it takes 10 or 20 seconds of falling before you could splat? Even 5 seconds of falling is enough time, reaction or not. The small amount of distance someone would have to fall for the split-second casting to matter is not likely to kill...

    D&D 5E What is a petrified eye of a Newt?

    Same here. This is an interesting list: https://davesgarden.com/guides/articles/please-pass-me-the-eye-of-newt-whats-really-in-that-witchs-cauldron

    D&D 5E What is a petrified eye of a Newt?

    All components are consumed on casting, unless the spell says otherwise and spell component pouches hold multiples of each spellcasting material and it is assumed that in down time, or during rest time while on adventure, that you are freely able to replenish the materials used during the day...

    D&D General D&D is so mainstream...

    Went looking for other themed places and apparently D&D in England does not automatically means Dungeons & Dragons. @Morrus Are you a member? lol https://www.danddlondon.com/club-dd/

    Worlds of Design: Barbarians at the Gates – Part 1

    Since most fantasy RPGs are set in the equivalent of the 11th-15th centuries AD, what the definition was in the days of the ancient Greeks does not matter. What became the typical barbarian came about when the various barbarian tribes contributed to the end/destruction of the Roman Empire...

    D&D 5E Alphastream - Why No RPG Company Truly Competes with Wizards of the Coast

    I don't know about that one, but there are quite a few successful 5E OGL systems and settings that would never have existed otherwise. Just think about Adventures in Middle-Earth, the OGL rules version of The One Ring. Both are very good, but AiME is much more accessible and sold way better than...

    Worlds of Design: Barbarians at the Gates – Part 1

    It depends on which edition of D&D you are playing. I remember the old days of barbarians hating magic and needing to destroy any magic items they found and getting one to tolerate a mage in the party was a lot of work.

    D&D 5E On Representation and Roleplaying

    The problem with all the magic that does a sex swap is that these items/spells/whatever change a character's biological sex from male to female or vice versa. They do nothing for how that person thinks or feels or anything beyond the physical body parts, and I guess the DNA too? We have to...

    D&D 5E On Representation and Roleplaying

    Yeah, when I mentioned the Irish, I only said how badly they were treated, never that they were enslaved here in the US. There are thousands of years of slavery, in every country/kingdom/culture we may want to make fantasy versions of, depending on time period being emulated. In most cases, it...

    D&D 5E On Representation and Roleplaying

    There were practically treated like slaves, though, including being worked to death. And also look at how the Irish were treated for a long time. And there is still the very dark side of prostitution, where many sex workers, of all races, are basically sex slaves. As for the how this topic has...

    D&D 5E On Representation and Roleplaying

    Better to just ignore Ad_hoc, as he is not worth your time. Or if you disagree with him enough, he will just put you on ignore. Probably half the members here are on his ignore list.

    D&D 5E On Representation and Roleplaying

    Go back and look at all the reviews and reactions to the releases of the Black Panther and Shang-Chi movies and you will see a lot of people excited about finally having someone who looks like them, characters they can look up to, that represent them in the larger world. The explosion of pride...
