    D&D General 'One D&D' Takes 5E to New & Digital Places

    They've used the word 'pillars' for two different things?

    D&D General 'One D&D' Takes 5E to New & Digital Places

    Yeah, we know. You like Level Up. You've said that plenty of times. We haven't forgotten. ;)

    D&D General 'One D&D' Takes 5E to New & Digital Places

    Last I checked, we've had D&D as a video game for over 30 years now in some form or fashion. This isn't anything new. ;)

    5.5E First playtest thread! One D&D Character Origins.

    I know, right? Not like the good old days of 2014 when your party could have a Goliath with a 15 STR and a Halfling also with a 15 STR. Thank goodness the rules made sure to really differentiate those body types! ;)

    5.5E First playtest thread! One D&D Character Origins.

    The name 'Ardling' doesn't really bother me, because it's about time the Guardinals got re-introduced into the game. They're the one Great Wheel extraplanar alignment-based creature that's never really been highlighted since like 2E. All the other ones have shown up in the game much more...

    5.5E First playtest thread! One D&D Character Origins.

    Heh heh... I'm not going to hold me breath waiting for the community to all come together and decide as a cohesive group whether this is considered a "new edition".

    5.5E First playtest thread! One D&D Character Origins.

    Which would probably been seen as a good nerf to the paladin, but a bad one to the rogue.

    At least tell me you got that on your license plate? ;)

    D&D General Wizards Presents Live Coverage

    Heh heh.. or they can just not use the new '20-always-succeeds' rule in their game if that matters that much to them. I mean if anyone thinks that this game is going to be exactly what they want across the board and their days of houseruling D&D is over... I hate to break it to them...

    5.5E First playtest thread! One D&D Character Origins.

    Now that I think about it... the only problem with 'Fred' is that a couple of our more angsty board members will see that and presume it stands for Forgotten Realms Edition... and get even more bent out of shape believing Faerun is the default setting for the game. ;)

    If you have a locked door you don't want the PCs to get through... don't set a DC at all and just say it can't be opened. Besides, it's a team game. What difference does it make if the Fighter opens it or the Rogue with Expertise in Thieve's Tools opens it?

    5.5E First playtest thread! One D&D Character Origins.

    6E, 5.5E, 5E+, 1D&D... does any of those terms actually matter? The game's the game. Call it the 'Fred Edition' for that matter if you want.

    D&D General Wizards Presents Live Coverage

    One thing that might be an interesting twist... if by some chance the community tells them they do not want monsters to lose the ability to critical hit... would be for PCs to be able to use their Inspiration to cancel a crit made by a monster. If Inspiration dice are now meant to be gained...

    D&D General Wizards Presents Live Coverage

    Yeah... we're probably quite a ways away from any updated Monster Manual playtest packets, as I'm sure they want to get the community's feedback on the idea of powerful Recharge abilities being a defacto "crit-like" system before they start cranking out all manner of monster blocks that have...

    D&D General Digital Only Edition

    If that ever actually happened to me, then maybe I'd go along with your point. But in fact... I've gotten rid of older games and books that I never played anymore (like all my AD&D and 2E books) and have not once ever regretted not owning them anymore. And I have a whole bunch of game books...

    D&D General "I have played in or run a D&D campaign set in Eberron." (a poll)

    Yep. Loved the setting when it first came out for 3.5 and bought a bunch of the books, although I never ran it. Bought the two 4E books too, but still never ran it. Wasn't until I got the 5E Wayfinder's Guide that I finally decided to jump in to run it with a pair of groups. Still love the...

    D&D General Digital Only Edition

    Yep. And people choose to use paper straws because they believe plastic straws are the massive plastic threat to our environment. Everyone has a cause. I don't begrudge you, even if I don't agree with your take.

    D&D General Digital Only Edition

    I am unconcerned with other people's issues with subscriptions. If people were unable to figure out how to work the Columbia Record and Tape Club back in the 80s to get first-run music at a greater discount than the local record store... that's on them. If you don't do subscriptions because...
