    If Psion is fixed and official does it belong into FR as basic and RAW?

    So here is one for you sinkhole fans: Assume there is finally some official product for a psion/mystic class, should it then become part of the base lore and part of all settings or only for those who have extensive lore for it like Eberron or DS? Before you answer to quick: Psionics was a big...

    The senseless achitecture in most official products

    Inspired by @Kris thread about him trying out the rolled up random dungeon i want to start a discussion about the annoyance that many official products cause in me about the seemingly totally senseless architectural features of the dungeon maps. With some absolutely marvelous exceptions so many...

    Campaign worlds: fluff crunch or canon?

    While Wotc has brought out some stuff for classic campaign worlds other than FR, some unexpected new things like Ravnica, some material which has been received mostly positive like CoS, some other stuff like Eberron seems to be controversial. Here is my question: What do you expect most from...

    What is so good about gate that it leads the current 9th level spells shootout?

    What is so good about the gate spell? I tell you what I would rule: In Darksun a gate procures only elementals. In Eberron it could be about anything even from the far realms. Those two, because of the "altered" cosmology In planescape gating something into Sigil which some major force...

    5E Darksun converted to 5e, trying to be true to 2e

    This is my attempt to establish Darksun rules for 5e while being as true as possible to 2e. Also I try to use as much 5e stuff reskinned as possible. E.g. my Mul is basically a halforc. I will start with the possibly race and class combos followed by some in depth explanation. Race Human...

    Exhaustion how often / unfair?

    Playing through the Oota campaign our dungeon master loves to apply exhaustion levels for all sorts of stuff: Air pollution, long swims /climbs etc. etc. As much as i love the additional grittiness of it, as much i hate some of its consequences, even on exhaustion level one, and the difficult...

    How do you resolve Dragonlances Defiling etc.? See poll which settings... so you must have a solution!

    Since in the newest poll it was asked in what settings people play, and some were playing in Darksun and Dragonlance I wonder: Since there is no (suitable) official rules on several issues especially in these two campaign settings I want to know your homebrew solutions, you gotta have one no...

    5E Teleport /fly /misty step the bane of cool dungeon design is RAW in 5E

    5E makes it far to easy (for some style of campaigns) to get these superpowers. Question: Should these not rather be optional? How do I restrict these without nerfing certain races / classes? How do I partially restrict these? Is there stuff like a dimensional anchor in 5E? Would a sorcerer...

    5E Multiclassing just with the core PHB any combo more powerful at low to medium levels?

    Ok, I hate multiclassing I admit it. But one day one of my players might say I want to try this, and I eventually will allow it for a campaign. Now I especially hate class dips, I could get along a bit better with 2nd ed mc-ing than 3e splat book builds. But that shall not be the topic of...

    5E Who else uses silver as the currency denominator rather than gold?

    In all my vanilla campaigns I tend to use silver as the coin base, and I use historical accurate conversion ratios. 1 Gold = 20 Silver = 240 Copper Since gold is rare and copper coins to minor, I do not have to use the conversion often anyway. The easiest way to use this is just say Silver...

    5E Does any one else think staff is overpowered and houserule it?

    I try to use as few houserules as possible in my games but here is one which i use and will use in every campaign Setting: Staff is two handed reach (So you may apply polearm master feat) but it is 1d6 and that is it. No versatile. If you hit with it onehanded it is 1d4 like an improvised...
