    🤷‍♂️ well in that case they are bloody confident about the first one.

    D&D Movie/TV D&D Beyond Movie Survey

    A lot of the questions I got were about the inclusion of specific game elements in the movie. Of the kind that would worry me, if I was really invested (well i kind am but there has been enough crap in this space). I am of the belief that a movie based on a game franchise should be a good...

    D&D Movie/TV D&D Beyond Movie Survey

    Kind of wierd to have a survey about a movie where principal photography has been shot, is it not?

    D&D General What is a "spell"? What isn't?

    Not to me. To me the wizard is running a diagnostic and relying on training for interpretation but the cleric is given information by their god but mechanically it is the same because the cleric needs to interpret the signs.

    D&D General What is a "spell"? What isn't?

    Well yeah that is the whole point. I will admit that while I was heading that way my self I was also influenced by Warspell: The Merge a book by Gorg Huff and Paula Goodlett

    5.5E The future of edition changes and revisions

    I think we are going to have to agree to differ, at a minimum for me to regard something as an edition change to PHB and DMG would have to be replaced with some significant changes. Colo's and Mordenkainen's going out of print while the basic rules of the game is defined by the 2014 rule books...

    D&D General What is a "spell"? What isn't?

    My own head canon is that all all non divine spells are rituals that. For casters like Wizards, Warlocks and Sorcerers they are rituals that act as templates to shape magic that are held by the caster in their magic aura and released by words and gestures. So for example, with regards to...

    5.5E The future of edition changes and revisions

    What is stopping you using the older material. What old stuff specifically no longer allowed?

    5.5E The future of edition changes and revisions

    Here we run into the nomenclature of "differences of small changes". I do not regard changes like new version of the monster or even stuff like the Tasha changes for the ranger as invalidating older content. You can build a Hunter Ranger in my game and even replace Primeval Awareness and keep...

    D&D 5E Explain: Mordenkainen's Monsters of the Multiverse

    Well it is forgotten for a reason :D

    5.5E The future of edition changes and revisions

    From 3.0 to 3.5 there was a strong financial incentive to obsolete the 3.0 books and sell the whole line back again to the same audience. The lack of market growth and revenue stream from the splat mill required it. Now there is significant revenue from licence arrangements with Roll20 and...

    Managing My Expectations? (+)

    @Retreater I have been following your post mortems and this confirms, to me, that there is a mismatch between your expectations and your players. I was going to suggest that since they seemed to be a bit passive to rail road them hard or a classic dungeon crawl but it seems you have tried that...

    D&D 5E Explain: Mordenkainen's Monsters of the Multiverse

    It is not just that, speculation in advance of the facts will put forth versions of the mechanics based on hearsay and that gets entrenched and adds to the controversy.

    D&D Movie/TV First Footage of D&D Honor Among Thieves: Dungeons, Dragons, Teamwork, With Superhero Vibe

    I would love a D&D adjacent series from Butcher or Aaronivich in an Urban Arcana setting Not the stuff they are doing butt utilizing some D&D tropes. Or fam any writer really.

    D&D 5E Are you permanently using any UA material in your games?

    If I am using a UA I will usually get the book or at least the FantasyGrounds mod of the book.

    D&D 5E Krynn's Free Feats: setting-specific or the future of the game?

    That kind of stuff made me quit Dming in the 3.x era except for saves not AC.

    D&D 5E Krynn's Free Feats: setting-specific or the future of the game?

    I like it. I had been thinking about allowing a free feat at first level anyway and now I think that one at 4th as well would be fine. I would also be ok with different worlds having different curated lists of feats. One for first level and another for fourth level.

    D&D 5E restart or rewrite or new?

    I voted for the remake with new take but I will freely admit that I am not heavy invested in settings anyway. I am more interested in things that expand the rules. So I find some of the proposed rules in the Dragonlance UA as very interesting even though I am not too bothered by the setting. I...

    D&D 5E New Unearthed Arcana: Heroes of Krynn Revisited

    That is not what I was asking For example the Squire of Solamnia feat says "Squire Maneuvers. You learn the Lunging Attack, Precision Attack, or Pushing Attack maneuver from the Battle Master subclass of the fighter in the Player’s Handbook (choose the maneuver when you gain this feat)" Does...
