    D&D 5E Do you have any social encounter only (or combat-light) D&D adventure recommendations?

    I know D&D can support social encounters as well as combat encounters, but most my experience with modules have been with have either been combat intense or trap heavy if there was no combat. Social encounters were rare except as interludes to combat, information seeking, and shop/rest...

    D&D 5E How the Camel lost its hump

    How the Camel lost its hump When the camel was first introduced as a mount in Dungeons and Dragons, it was a premium mount with preferred abilities over a riding horse in desert environments. However, over the years, with each subsequent edition, the camel has been relegated to a poor man’s...

    D&D 5E Food weight consumption and weight of food/rations

    So I am about to run a campaign with an austere environment and I am refreshing my memory on the rules for food and water consumption, travel distance, weather impacts, and exhaustion. However, I’ve come across a weird incongruity in the rules regarding feeding requirements. According to the...

    I have just uploaded Mystic Power Cards Template for Magic Set Editor to the downloads area. The powers for the new Mystic class from Unearthed Arcana seems like it would benefit from some discipline power cards, much like the spell cards I made for the spell casters in D&D.

    Character Level Disparity in a group

    I am curious about what a game master allows (or requires if the case may be) level disparity between characters of the adventure group. Do you expect or require all characters to be the same level? Or do your players fall behind because they miss a game or tow, so they are a level behind the...

    D&D 5E What to do when the Player's Handbook falls apart

    Other than sending it back to WOTC for a replacement (which I think is the best idea). However, I decided to convert the Player's Handbook into a binder style book (like the old 2nd Edition) so I could add the Unearthed Arcana materials, the errata sheet, and any additional 3rd party player's...

He does recall vaguely the stigma that was once applied to the game, but know little about it as he was not involved...
