    D&D 5E Did I invent this NPC ability?

    Please help me find something. I've been using an NPC power for a variety of homemade characters. I've given commander NPCs the ability to use a bonus action to allow one of their mooks to make an extra attack on the commanders turn. I've typically made it a recharge 5-6 ability. It works...

    D&D 5E Vicious Mockery

    So my wife ran a L1 bard last night and killed a Kobold entirely with insults. She is a 5E fan on that alone. (She already liked it. But know she likes it +1) :)

    D&D 5E Timing - Advantage / Disadvantage and other factors

    A fighter is toe-to-toe with a wizard. The wizard has Blur in effect. A Rogue is friends with the fighter and hidden a few feet away, unbeknownst to the wizard. None of the characters has any special vision or means to overcome Blur. All attacks against the Wizard have disadvantage because of...

    D&D 5E Rolling a 20 always hits

    Does this matter? I mean, if your target is AC19 and your attack has a -2, then ok. But doesn't it almost always hit anyway now?

    D&D 5E Poisoned condition (in basic)

    Do we know anything about the "poisoned" condition? (Disad on attacks and ability checks) Looking at the rest of basic, nothing creates this condition. For example basic "poison" just inflicts a little damage. Looking at the final playtest bestiary there are some examples of poisons that...

    Spells - Invisibility and Legacy

    So, we've talked about Invisibility and stealth. Has anyone ever been really bugged by the invisible until an attack is made trope? It is such an established piece of D&D history, that it seems to not even bring about comment. People will debate on and on what constitutes an attack and what...

    Squares and Facing

    Logan Bonner has stated in his latest blog that old minis will be compatible. This strongly implies that square bases and the associated no facing elements of 3.5 will remain.

    I've seen a reference or three to "what we know so far" about skills. So far I don't "know" anything about skills. And I don't see a thread about them. Am I missing something? Or are people making just calling their assumptions knowledge? What do we know about skills based on what WotC has...

    D&D Player Advisory Panel Ends

    I just got an e-mail stateing that the Advisory Panel is done. CLEARLY the only possible explanation is that the focus on 4E makes it no longer needed.* * - Is 95% joking, though I really did receive the e-mail.

    Browser Question (history dumping)

    So, would anyone have any idea why my browser periodically just completely drops its history? I'm using Firefox 1.0.7. Every now and then, (today for one) it will suddenly lose the drop down list of recent web sites. I've got my history set at 4 days and I haven't cleared it. This seems to...

    SKR Adventure in Dungeon 126

    I gotta say that I think Sean is one of the very best at putting adventures together. Plot, details, mechanics and running advice are all quality and efficiently done. I thought the same of the demogorgon adventure a few issues back. I almost never run 3rd party adventures straight. But I...

    Legends of the Samurai: Mystic Arts: Kenza Questions

    First, I really like this product. Are Kenza's really compeletly restricted to the short spell lists? I see that they are seriously efffective with those spells. But they seem crippled by being severe one trick ponies. Am I missing something? I'm trying to think of a way to give them some...

    RPGnow on the fritz

    I've been a big fan of RPGnow and ordered a lot of stuff through them. But they have hit a real rough patch, at least for me. My three most recent orders: Jan 29th: I was double billed and had to get that fixed. Feb 21st: I received two receipts. It turns out I was NOT double billed, but...

    Power Attack, Two Handed Weapons and Crit

    I thought this was pretty simple, but now I'm not 100% certain. If a character power attacks with a two handed weapon and scores a crit, what is the damage? Assume a -4 to attack for power attack, so a +8 damage and a greatsword (X2 crits). My initial assumption was that two handed power...

    A simple swamp map

    This is a pretty low detail simple swamp map I cranked out for this week's game. Maybe someone can get a little use out of it. Fairly basic CC2 stuff.
