    Level Up (A5E) Gnolls (and other evil things)

    So people who have a problem shouldn't play D&D 5e? Because that's essentially what anyone who says "It's a group problem" is saying.

    Level Up (A5E) Gnolls (and other evil things)

    None of these. I don't think I've played a game with that kind of opponent in years.

    Pathfinder 2E The Pathfinder Subform Is Definitely Dead - So What?

    Most gamer thing I've heard in a long time. :LOL:

    Pathfinder 2E The Pathfinder Subform Is Definitely Dead - So What?

    At least some of the Pathfinder fanbase split from Paizo the same way they split from WotC: their favorite company made a new edition, and they went elsewhere to find games compatible with their tastes/existing products.

    Level Up (A5E) Gnolls (and other evil things)

    There's definitely an issue of taste within this: I probably won't blink if presented with mindless opponents like the usual zombie/skeleton. Maybe I wouldn't think too hard about fiends. But for my tastes, sapient mortals are just uncomfortable.

    Level Up (A5E) Gnolls (and other evil things)

    I'm like that, too. It makes me want to skip bestiaries these days.

    D&D 5E How complex do you like your character creation process?

    BOTH #1 and #5, not necessarily in the same system. 5e is right in an "uncanny valley" middle zone.

    D&D General Tell us about some of the interesting and unique creatures in your homebrew world!

    I have a few elementals I'm kind of proud of: Wood: Imagine treants who are fast, stealthy, and covered in tangling vines. Bone: Collections of skeleton pieces with horns for claws, and that can rot wood or rust metal with a touch. Metal: Collections of metal plates and pins, skittering around...

    D&D 5E A Slower Caster Spell Progression and other Suggestions

    I have to admit: the sort of psychic powers often seen in sci-fi are often more attractive to me then pages of spells. That could be interesting: spellcasting would be one-short (per rest) that you either save or work around. I'm not sure I'd want to play that, though: I'm one of those people...

    D&D 5E A Slower Caster Spell Progression and other Suggestions

    Which is often what I desire after reading caster vs martial threads: in my mind, the problem is that the two systems are too different to balance effectively. A 1st level Wizard would get "Move Stuff At a Distance", which lets them move and throw objects. That's the only magical thing they...

    D&D 5E A Slower Caster Spell Progression and other Suggestions

    If I were in charge of doing this, the first thing I'd do is get rid of the current spellcasting system. I would replace it with each "magic" class having specific class or subclass features that do spell-like stuff, but only a few per class/subclass, with as little overlap as possible. There...

    D&D 5E Why are wizard's so weak? (A parody)

    They should just get rid of the Wizard. Replace it with the Warlock. Also replace the Sorcerer with Warlock. Heck, throw out Cleric and Druid and make them Warlock subclasses: no one wants to cast healing anyway. Bard, too. Call it "Muse Patron". Paladin? Warlock subclass! Ranger is...

    D&D 5E Does anyone know a good psion?

    Pathfinder 1e, unless you're counting that as part of 3.5e D&D. My feeling is that rather than Spheres being more complex, it's different such that if you started on the D&D slots system it takes time to learn. I don't recommend Spheres if people want something that sticks closer to core 5e...

    D&D 5E Does anyone know a good psion?

    The majority of the system is based on giving the caster a few simple base effects and then further options modify those. It's kind of like how Warlocks get eldritch blast and then can take invocations that modify the blast. I find dealing with that much, much easier than having a bunch of...

    D&D 5E Does anyone know a good psion?

    How much info do you want to have to read through? Because it'd be easy to make a psion using Spheres of Power: Incanter with the Esper subclass and focus on talents from Mind and Telekinesis. There's also Green Ronin's Blue Rose for 5e, but that'd be buying a whole book just for the tweaks...

    Alternatives to 5E (I ask for no particular reason...)

    Though you can wait and hope that Shadow of the Weird Wizard comes out soon.

    D&D General "Red Orc" American Indians and "Yellow Orc" Mongolians in D&D

    Research is hard. Just knowing how to research is hard. I'm not saying that to excuse not doing the right thing. But I can see how if you both don't want to cause offense and don't want to work yourself too hard one might choose sticking to the cultures you don't have to worry about.

    D&D General "Red Orc" American Indians and "Yellow Orc" Mongolians in D&D

    :eek: Ouch. I thought most of these were going to be things I couldn't catch on my own, but......ouch.
