    Level Up (A5E) Am I missing something with Ability Scores?

    Heritages don't have the typical +2 to one or +1 twice to ability scores. The +1 found in backgrounds is not the same. So does this mean LU characters typically have lower ability scores that 5E characters?

    Level Up (A5E) Class Saving Throws

    I'd really love to see this become: "Choose 2 from AbilityX, AbilityY, and AbilityZ". Or, "AbilityX and choice of AbilityY or AbilityZ" I can't imagine all characters of a class are proficient at the same saves.

    Level Up (A5E) What is off the table?

    Most of this discussion is about what Level Up could be. I'd be curious what Level Up absolutely will not be. (And please stick to the TTRPG environment. I'm not looking for a list of silly things Level Up will not be. It's not a dessert topping!)

    D&D 5E Rules: Can you take a bonus action while casting a ritual spell?

    By RAW it seems like you can as the PHB only says you need to spend your action each turn casting the spell. It also requires you concentration to cast a ritual. But basically, can you use a bonus action, for example, to direct an unseen servant to do something, while in the middle of casting a...

    D&D 5E My wish for saving throws

    I wish saving throws had modifiers like skills. Fireball would say make a Dexterity (dodge) saving throw. Then abilities like Evasion would say, whenever you make a Dexterity (dodge) saving throw, if you succeed you take no damage. This would apply to other saves as well (better names can...

    d20 vs 2d20

    Let me start by saying there are no right answers to this question. In most d20 games, there are two circumstances for d20 rolls: rolls vs DC and opposed rolls. But math-wise, this means that some rolls have linear probability distribution with 20 discrete results and some rolls have triangular...

    Thoughts on Proficiency and AC

    I've been nagged by a minor inconsistency in 5E. (Just one? for the purposes of this thread, yes, just one. Well, maybe two.) When you calculate the DC of just about everything in 5E, you add 8 + ability mod + proficiency bonus, if proficient. But when you calculate Armor Class, you add armor...

    Green Ronin Website down?

    I noticed greenronin.com and roninarmy.com have not been up all day. Is it just my end of the Internet or are those URLs actually down? I noticed greenroninstore.com is up but I was looking for the forums not the store.

    [5E] [OOC] JM's A Bit of Trouble (Closed)

    So I'm tired of games just dying out. I've had only one game where the characters leveled up in the year I've been on this PbF forum. So maybe if I run a game it will last more that a few months. (Or some catastrophe will befall me as it has the GMs of the games I'm in.) Thus, I'm looking for...
