    D&D 5E Help making an alchemist villain?

    I'm at the place in our campaign where I need to start thinking about one of the villains connected to 2 PCs backstories: Flaviatticus the alchemist. I could use help figuring out how to stat him up... A few quick facts I've established about the villain: Flaviatticus was a decrepit old...

    D&D 5E 5e Combat Encounter Cheat Sheet

    Something I've been working on for a bit. This is just my personal approach to designing combat encounters (that aren't just quick random encounters). It's made for an 11x17 printout. Hopefully some folks find this helpful. I'll gather feedback and playtest, and probably edit it over the...

    D&D 5E Help on Chaos Hammer spell conversion?

    I'm looking to convert an old spell called Chaos Hammer, which you may know from its 3rd edition version (ranged area effect that dealt force damage - no damage if you were chaotic, and 1/2 damage if you were neutral/unaligned - and slowed the targets), but originated in the 2nd edition...

    D&D 5E What should this magic item's rarity be?

    I wrote up a magic item that transforms its drinker's appearance into that of a demon. What should its rarity be? Demonform Elixir Wondrous item, ? When you imbibe this alchemical elixir as an action, you undergo a violent transformation as your physical appearance transforms into that of a...

    D&D 5E Guecubu Demon Conversion Question (Monster CR)

    Working on a write-up for the abyssal realm of Azzagrat, and I wanted an interesting possessor demon. Reading through 3e's Fiendish Codex: Hordes of the Abyss, I read about the guecubu demon inhabiting markets in that realm, and I tried writing up a conversion. It was a bit tricky, and I ended...

    D&D 5E Update on Kobold Fight Club

    One of the older more heavily used encounter builders has been Kobold Fight Club. However in the last couple weeks, the site has been nonfunctional due to technical issues. Recognizing the effort that was put into maintaining the website, some enterprising fans have come together and launched...

    D&D 5E Spell balance? Abyssal Fury (conversion/homebrew)

    My current game is ultimately headed to the Abyss – but I've got some time before then, so I've been writing up some things in preparation, including several converted spells with Abyssal or demonic themes. One spell that I'd like to include is Abyssal Fury – it will be known by an enemy...

    D&D 5E Feedback on five homebrew spells?

    I'm running an Egyptian-themed campaign with two clerics where there are "mysteries" they can be initiated into associated with their respective gods. These include access to new feats, equipment, prestige classes (based on this UA), and "secret" spells. Am I designing these 5 spells...

    D&D 5E Designing a ghul-ish Haunt for my players?

    Tl;dr – How would you handle writing up a haunting event/challenge in 5e? My players (4th level) have heard about a ghul named Fayezoum (yes "ghul", see below) haunting the necropolis at night, specifically hunting down undead. One of their NPC companions even had a terrifying brush with it...

    D&D 5E Dragon dreams?

    Do dragons have a special connection to some "other state" when they dream? Is there a sourcebook where some connection has been made between dragons and... for lack of a better word... energies associated with psychic states, dreams, or somesuch? I've got a red dragon trapped inside its egg...

    D&D 5E Monster feedback: Ogre Storm Witch

    I'm writing up a couple unique ogre stat blocks for an adventure, including an ogre storm witch. This is a blend of the 4th edition Ogre Storm Shaman, excerpts about ogre shamans (and lots of old spell lookup) in the AD&D Monstrous Manual, and my own madcap ideas. Here are my targeted questions...

    D&D General Abyssal breaches?

    My players will be venturing through a desert soon-ish (early this summer) which is plagued by Abyssal breaches. What would an abyssal breach look like? And how would you model it in the game? AFAIK, there is no "correct and official" answer here, so my question is coming from a spirit of...

    D&D 5E How to run a successful "poisoned NPC" scene in 5e?

    My 4th-5th level PCs are approaching a scene in which they'll have an audience with the aging ruler (pharaoh), where they're attempting to present evidence of a renewed threat that the ruler believes to have died with his grandfather. I'm designing this as a skill challenge to determine how...

    D&D 5E Raxivort stats?

    If you, for some very unlikely reason, wanted stats for Raxivort, here you go! :) If you have a chance to offer feedback on the design, whether it's concept or details, I'd much appreciate your insight. Some specific questions: CR look about right? Legendary Actions reasonable? Should any cost...

    D&D General Testing some riddles

    Have a few riddles I'd like to pass your way and see if they're hitting that sweet spot between "too obvious" and "too hard." Context is there's a massive viper tree (an abyssal tree with snakes for branches) posing these riddles to the PCs. :geek: Many thanks! 1st Riddle I may come from an...

    D&D 5E Would a daemonfey be a cambion in 5e?

    Quick question for ye sages: Would a daemonfey from FR lore pretty much be a cambion in 5e terms? Would the cambion stat block from the MM model such a creature sufficiently? If you want to tackle the fey'ri, I'd be interested in them too.

    D&D 5E Spells and Evaluating Monster CR

    When homebrewing a spellcasting monster, how can I account for spells that don't have an obvious and/or easily calculated contribution to defensive/offensive challenge in determining the monster's CR? While this question has come up for me before, I've usually been able to work through some...

    5.5E Fighter Class rewrite

    I've spent some time this month rewriting the fighter class. This builds upon, but refines and simplifies, ideas I began putting down to "paper" in The Warrior thread years ago. What's changed for me since then is that I've run and played more D&D 5e, watched others playing D&D, enjoyed the...

    D&D 5E Mysteries, Zone of Truth, and Savvy Players?

    We've started a new campaign, and after their first session my players are set up to investigate a mystery of a stolen auction item. My group is comprised of experienced, clever, genre-savvy players, and everyone has some DMing experience. They're a joy to DM for but also a challenge! B-) One...

    D&D 5E Experiences with a PC garrote weapon?

    I'm attempting to design a garrote weapon that a PC could use – by player request. And I was wondering if any of the ENWorld brain trust had experience adapting garrotes to 5e? How did it go? What worked and what didn't work? ..... That was the Tl;dr version of my question. I realize that...
