    D&D 5E 5e witches, your preferred implementation?

    I can see the first three easily, but bard seems a harder sell. What is the witch's type of performance? Which setting? We missed the obvious one in Ravenloft, but I guess Tasha was from Oerth...

    D&D General What Would Happen if Fiends Came to Fill the "Low CR Monsters" Niche?

    I'd all be for making them 7 ft tall gnomes with regeneration.

    D&D General I really LOVE Stomping Goblins

    I mean, great. Did the PC use charm magic to coerce that friendship or did the kobold decide on that with it's own free will? More importantly, are you willing to allow him to convert every opponent they find to become a loyal party member?

    D&D General I really LOVE Stomping Goblins

    I'm just pointing out that there really isn't a way to play a true pacifist. D&D ends up with PCs committing some manner of violence against thier foes, be it physical or mental. The best you can do is try to not to engage in active murder and hope you can avoid as much unintentional...

    D&D General What Would Happen if Fiends Came to Fill the "Low CR Monsters" Niche?

    That's fine. Difference of opinion. I LOVE the new gnolls. I like that they were absolute beasts, fiends in mortal flesh, and more a force of nature than a another humanoid race. It made them unique and not "furry orcs" and it didn't bother me in the least they aren't a PC race. After Volos...

    D&D General I really LOVE Stomping Goblins

    You missed the memo. Charm spells and magic that robs people of their autonomy are eviler than necromancy. It's better to fry them with a ball of fire than make them your friend against thier will.

    D&D General I really LOVE Stomping Goblins

    Don't confuse "non-hostile" for "non-evil". You can still be a LE kobold and decide it's better to work with potential murderhobos ín an attempt to bargain your life and the life of your dragon charge than to needlessly throw it away on a suicide attack.

    D&D General What Would Happen if Fiends Came to Fill the "Low CR Monsters" Niche?

    5e lore says they are born of normal hyenas that were corrupted by demon ichor. New gnolls are created when hyenas (and sometimes other creatures) eat dead gnoll meat and transform into "adult" gnolls. They barely work with any other races, create no tools or living spaces, only communicate in...

    D&D General What Would Happen if Fiends Came to Fill the "Low CR Monsters" Niche?

    The game already has that: they are called gnolls and they absolutely fill the low CR demon role in all but creature type (and I assume that is due to how certain spells and abilities interact with fiends). People have pretty solidly rejected that. Using a different fiend isn't going to change...

    D&D General I really LOVE Stomping Goblins

    As a replacement for goblins, I think it would eventually end up in the same place. Gnolls are basically in this design space already, they are living fiends that basically only have the humanoid type so you can cast "X person" spells on them and can't use protection from evil to stop them...

    5.5E New Classes for 5e. Is anything missing?

    Please explain the difference between a monk using a vow, a paladin using an oath, and a cleric gaining power though faith. Explain it to me like I'm a child.

    5.5E New Classes for 5e. Is anything missing?

    I fail to see why warlock would end up a cleric, save for the tiny factor that they both deal with extraplanar entities. The nature of the relationship and the magic provided are diametrically opposite and any class that tried to house both under the same roof would be so vague and generic it...

    5.5E New Classes for 5e. Is anything missing?

    This is pretty much the problem with any class based system: there are only so many ways to define "fights with weapons and/or magic". I mean, on a meta-level, an EK, paladin, bladesinger, war bard, hexblade and battlesmith all are variants of "fights with weapons and magic" but I don't think...

    5.5E New Classes for 5e. Is anything missing?

    I mean, classically monks didn't fit a niche, but I think the current 5e monk is very much a decent rogue replacement. They swap out the one-big-hit (sneak attack) for flurry of blows (many smaller hits) but I think the monk can easily fill the rogue's combat role and with the right skills even...

    D&D 5E A Compilation of all the Race Changes in Monsters of the Multiverse

    I agree. Some fans want to play off-kilter combinations like dwarf wizard without feeling they are underpowered. It not enough for the combination to be viable, they want the game to validate their choice by giving them access to the same ability score modifiers they would get if they picked a...

    D&D 5E A Compilation of all the Race Changes in Monsters of the Multiverse

    In Ye Olde Days of Basic (B/X or BECMI) ability scores had nearly no impact on your chosen class, save for bonus XP if it was high enough. Dexterity gave no bonus to thief skills, Intelligence didn't affect a magic-users ability to learn or cast spells, and Wisdom granted no additional...

    D&D 5E A Compilation of all the Race Changes in Monsters of the Multiverse

    Clearly 5e was a mistake and WotC should have doubled down on 4e.

    D&D 5E A Compilation of all the Race Changes in Monsters of the Multiverse

    I know We Don't Talk About Mearls, but he pretty much spelled out the design philosophy of D&D Next during the playtest era. The basic design philosophy was that 4e had moved too far from the design philosophy of earlier editions and they wanted to create a D&D that was a modern emulation of the...

    D&D 5E D&D Beyond Confirms Monsters of the Multiverse's May Standalone Release

    I figure that will be updated in the 2024 refresh rather than now.
