    D&D 5E Mines of Phandelver - Need Help With a BBEG Brainstorm

    I would do it IN REVERSE. Gundren Rockseeker was once the Black Spider/Dread Pirate Roberts, but someone came in and pulled a Xanathar on him and took over his operation, legacy, and even his name! It allows Gundren to be a justifiably weaker, uses the DPR themes you are interested in, and...

    D&D 5E Can I use animate dead to reanimate a zombie that has been killed?

    Erfworld. Wasn't that the extremely cool webcomic where the writer kept firing his artists?

    D&D 5E Can I use animate dead to reanimate a zombie that has been killed?

    I should clarify. When the zombie/skeleton is defeated, I count the remains as both a humanoid body and an undead body. My game has been improved by this ruling. Of course, sometimes the remains are heavily damaged and require mending (the spell, physical repair, or both). It's case by case.

    D&D 5E Can I use animate dead to reanimate a zombie that has been killed?

    There's nothing that says it stops being a humanoid corpse. So it depends if your DM thinks an object can count as more than one thing at a time. I personally rule on a case by case basis, but generally find letting a necromancer repeatedly raise the same corpse to be good for roleplay. The...

    D&D General Is power creep bad?

    The things that happen in Irish mythology are like something straight out of a modern anime, including characters with multicolor hair and multicolor eyes. And not just teen power fantasy anime, but horror anime too!

    D&D General Is power creep bad?

    Them newfangled gnomes taking levels of paladin and bard. Heck, power creep is a dwarf being able to level up to 11 in cleric! Or dwarves being able to take class levels in anything at all! Old man voice. Fist shaking. Lawns defended.

    D&D General Is power creep bad?

    To be clear, I asked if your intent was to insult, and you said "Yes."

    D&D General Is power creep bad?

    I believe they're referring to the first two paragraphs of your post. That was the flame bait. The rest of your post was fine.

    D&D General Is power creep bad?

    Is this the modern D&D version of "Ok, Boomer"?

    D&D General Is power creep bad?

    This. The first time a DM uses earseekers (and the like), I laugh and consider it a nostalgic blast from the past. The second time? I simply don't have enough free time to enjoy that playstyle anymore, and it will prompt a conversation with the DM about playstyle that may or may not see me...

    I have heard about DM's who won't allow a dog to Help you keep watch at night! 🐕

    D&D 5E would you let a PC learn a non spell magic power?

    Anytime someone tells me "My eyes are up here!" I immediately suspect a medusa. And not the friendly kind.

    D&D 5E What rule(s) is 5e missing?

    I want Skill Challenges and Minions back. I mean, I already have them back in my own games. I just want them officially back.

    D&D 5E Is Tasha's More or Less The Universal Standard?

    As long as I have one really good stat, I'm entirely happy with two or even three low ones. Granted, I find stats as low as 3 pretty difficult to roleplay, but 6-10 is absolutely on the table if I have my one comfy 17-18.

    D&D 5E Is Tasha's More or Less The Universal Standard?

    A quick survey of some DMs I know has 29 of them allowing anything from Tashas. 4 of them don't allow Twilight Clerics. 7 Don't use Tashas (and of those, 3 don't use anything but the PHB). And that's still such a small sample size that it doesn't count for much.

    D&D 5E Wights....problem with RaW...

    Prior editions did include magic weapons and/or feats that would allow the energy drain to happen with weapon attacks.

    D&D General The War Between Vecna and the Raven Queen: Origins, Thoughts, and Campaign/World-Building Ideas

    I know not what fires burn in your mind, but they smoke like madness to me!

    5.5E If short rest abilities become Prof # tiimes per day?

    I'm going to sit in my corner and wave my little "I ♡ encounter powers" flag.
