    D&D 5E Prediction: Hasbro Will Acquire Foundry Virtual Tabletop for $24M

    Not so - Shard is specifically intended to play 5e and nothing else - and is hampered by only being able to use the SRD. If Wizards bought them, they'd have a VTT tailor made for their game.

    D&D 5E Is D&D combat fun?

    I would also have voted for 50/50 if that were possible on the poll. The fact is, I love the idea of D&D combat. And I have always been disappointed by it. In 1e AD&D we quit playing halfway through the module The Gauntlet because there was this fort full of medium-level humanoids (5 to 7 HD)...

    D&D 5E Rise Of The Drow is Three Good D&D Books In One

    The Drider supplement is a stretch goal of the Survivalists Guide To Spelunking (an updated Dungeoneers Survival Guide for 5e). It's not available to the entire community yet but I'm sure it will be released at some point. You can join AAW Games Discord channel or Facebook group and ask about it...

    D&D 5E Rise Of The Drow is Three Good D&D Books In One

    A few thoughts more: the book could easily have been 100 pages longer, because many of the locations which now get two to four pages in the gazetteer section could easily be expanded to eight to even sixteen pages in some cases, just because there's so much potential for great material there...

    D&D 5E Rise Of The Drow is Three Good D&D Books In One

    I'm literally in the middle of this campaign. Things you need to know: The first seven or eight levels of play have a very clearly structured storyline. It's not a railroad because there are several paths offered to reach the objectives, and how your party achieves them is also completely up to...

    5.5E YOU are in charge of the next PHB! What do you change?

    I would make it much shorter and easier to read. Get away from the textbook feel, reduce some aspects (only the Tolkien fantasy races in the basic PHB) and really watch over clarity in the rule explanations. 128 pages would be the goal. If it’s more than that the extra pages should all be art...

    D&D General good dungeons to populate a sandbox setting?

    And X1 has also gotten the update treatment from Goodman Games so there's a ton of new material for that - and it fits in with Saltmarsh, the Sags can easily be under the sway of the new evil race trapped on the island.

    D&D 5E Gestalt multiclassing, how's the balance of this proposal

    If you gestalt in a duet campaign, there is nothing wrong with combining spell slots from two classes. You just have more options & more casting power but action economy etc. stay the same and since there is no other PC there are no balancing or unfairness issues.

    D&D 5E Found DNDNext pdfs on my Google Drive. Wonder if I should keep?

    So what elements from the playtests do people like better than the final official version?

    What are the two best Star Wars books on the structure and composition of the Empire

    The Star Wars D6 game's Imperial Source Book is excellent for this, though of course it was pre-prequels and sequels so some stuff might no longer fit in the current continuity. But as an inside look into an intergalactic fascist military machine, it's hard to beat.

    D&D 5E Critiquing the System

    My problems with D&D 5e: 1) combat is BORING. And yet in so many ways the core of the game. Every fight I've been in up til now starts with the opponents doing major damage to the party (helped by a GM who cannot stop rolling criticals for the life of him :)), and then halfway through the...

    D&D 5E Tyranny of Dragons Getting Republished in Combined Anniversary Volume

    They really should totally rewrite both adventures. The biggest problem with the adventure path is that you never, ever get to feel that the Cult is attackign the Realms in full force. The first book is a long chase after an underwhelming treasure. The second book... Well, all the major power...

    D&D 5E Ghosts of Saltmarsh: A Review

    House rules are BAD, Fitz! Even when they are used to fix obvious mistakes by the designers! The interwebz says so.

    Has Paizo ever talked about releasing their adventures in 5E format?

    I think the Apple/Android comparison is relevant but only to a certain level. Apple rules the roost, overpriced though their products are, and so they can easily keep people 'captive' in their ecosystem. Or at least more easily. Paizo had a great run by taking up the 3.5 slack and put out a LOT...

    Has this kickstarter ever been done? I can't find any mention of the finished conversion guide anywhere and haven't seen it up for sale at DMsguild.

    Dragon Reflections #16 – Gygax Fights Back!

    Both approaches work, depending on player preference... In Top Secret/SI, you rolled to hit and hit location at the same time. The system used percentile dice, and you reversed your to hit number to find where you hit... an elegant solution that keeps the tempo up. I admit that I like the...
