    D&D 5E Bard/Wizard Hybrid Class: The White Wizard

    You could always just nerf the Wizard Spell list - it's not as if Gandalf ever cast Teleportation Circle or Fireball.

    D&D 5E More DRAGONLANCE Information: Kender, Battles, W&H's Novels, & More!

    All you would need is a Human Racial Feat that gives +1 to any three stats that you have not already given a bonus too and you would have either a current +1 to all six stats "Standard" Human or maybe a +2 x 1, +1 x 4, +0 x 1 stat with no other feats race.

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

    So every monster can take "Short Rest" as their action any turn, roll all the hit dice they want, and suddenly have lots more hit points? That would really increase the grind factor of combat. OTOH it would also nerf OP spellcasters, since they would now need to burn through more spell slots to...

    D&D 5E Turning Aasimar, Tiefling, Warforged, Shifter and similar races into multiclass templates that add onto "base" race instead of being separate race.

    "Warforged Rebuild" just means that after the crash a secret government agency put 6 million dollars worth of parts in you, rebuilding you better, stronger, faster. It fits in some fantasy settings, but not in ones that don't have magic as technology (Eberron) or gothic horror body modification...

    D&D 5E Saving Throws as Reactions (+)

    Maybe CON saves are when you grit your teeth and fight past the pain like an action movie star, but doing so takes a moment (your reaction). STR saves are the same thing, but using your muscles. With INT and WIS and CHR saves you're just taking a moment to overcome a mental effect in the same...

    D&D 5E Saving Throws as Reactions (+)

    What if there were no saves as such? You could chose to give up your reaction to resist [1] an effect or you could chose to auto-fail. If you had no reaction you could give up your next turns move and move out of the way now, and if you had already done that you could chose to give up your next...

Hecate 23 Hephaestus 25 Hera 14 Hermes 23 Hestia 20 - 2 = 18 (Her portfolio is too close to Hera's and we don't need both, and...

    D&D 5E Getting Rid of Variable Weapon Damage- An Immodest Proposal

    Am I the only one who thought this thread was going to be about not rolling for damage, but just taking the average (rounding down, as usual for 5e)? A dagger does not do 1d4, it does two. A short sword does not do 1d6, it does three. A Fireball does not do 8d6, it does 28. Etc.

    Marvel Multiverse Role-Playing Game Playtest Impressions

    For high powered Cortex I would actually skip the d14 and the d18 and just go d12, d16, d20 which are all (fractionally) closer to their neighbors than the d4 and the d6 are. Galactus gets d20's, Heralds of Galactus like Silver Surfer get d16's. Starting PC's max at d12. Also, how do you...

    D&D 5E 6 months without a UA

    Most previous setting books have had some new races and/or subclasses. Even if the races have already been tested or were in MotM, I think we should see some new UA subclasses.

    D&D General For those that find Alignment useful, what does "Lawful" mean to you

    I consider "Lawful" to be almost identical to what philosophers call "deontological", "the normative ethical theory that the morality of an action should be based on whether that action itself is right or wrong under a series of rules, rather than based on the consequences of the action." Also...

    Modiphious wants $82.00 for an "introductory" boxed set for Dune? Don't they understand that we're not all made out of melange?

    D&D 5E What magic items would a Lich King have (Thay and Szass Tam)?

    How about a used full set of all six stat boosting Tomes? Who wouldn't want an extra +1 to every single save and skill check?

    D&D 5E Empowering Races

    Your class gets extra abilities as you level up. Why shouldn't your race (and your background) get extra abilities as you level up as well? Nothing too drastic, maybe an extra tool or language at Tier 1 (you can pick any, but you are encouraged to pick ones that fit your...

    D&D 5E Unnecessary Skills That Should Be Added to 5e (+)

    Pack Up (STR) - for jamming more things into a container than it is supposed to be able to handle. Pack Up (DEX) - for being able to get things out of a container without wasting time avoiding having to remove the other things in the container first. Pack Up (CON) - for dealing with...
