    Harassment Policies: New Allegations Show More Work To Be Done

    Doesn't sound like harassment to me but a player being a player, if these girls thought he was more attractive they wouldn't call it harassment. You have to be assertive, you have to put yourself out there, you have to be take as many swings at bat as you can and most of the time you strike...

    Do We Still Need "Race" in D&D?

    Need, no, but should we change to match the whims of a small group of people because it upsets them, also no. Race is a perfectly fine term, and used the way it is in rpg books is more accurate than modern use when talking about skin coloration.

    Harassment At PaizoCon 2017

    So some guy white knighted and probably got punched for his interference sounds like more stuff to be chalked up to a few to much to drink and something that happens all the time and isn't a big deal. The girl didn't get hurt, is my point, the people there should have handled it better. It...

    Harassment At PaizoCon 2017

    Guy gets drunk and acts stupid and people lose their minds, this happens all the time, it's happening right now, somewhere. No one was physically hurt, no one was raped, the "victim" needs to develop a thicker skin and learn to forgive and forget this should never have been made an issue of...

    The Actual Table of Contents for Xanathar's Guide to Everything

    Is there a good summary of all the preview videos someplace just the facts we know about the different options, I can't stand watching these guys take 10 minutes to tell me the sentence that sort of matters, and I just find watching videos in general a horrible way to release information.

    D&D 5E No Thief/Acrobat in XGTE, so... how would you do it?

    Lots of good ideas, but one of the key points of any good thief acrobat is using a quarterstaff for a weapon, so this needs to be addressed. I don't think it is a a big deal since the staff maxes out at d8 if used with both hands, and isn't heavy so can't use GWM feat, so just talk to the DM...

    To encourage them to keep allies up impose a level of exhaustion if they go to 0 h.p. To keep them from bouncing back into the fight once at 0 h.p, require the character to be healed to half hit points before regaining consciousness in combat. To teach them the dangers of being at low h.p use...

    D&D 5E Are You Excited about Tomb of Annihilation?

    Less excited now that they have explained it is for only levels 1-11. It will depend on how well the hex crawling part of the adventure is for me to want to purchase it.

    D&D 5E Grung skin vs monk fist

    The monk would strike the grund in an area covered by clothes or armor, they would use a part of their body that is covered by clothes or gear to make the strikes, remember you can make an unarmed strike with any part of your body-hands, feet, knee, elbow, head, forearm, and so on.

    CONAN Is Finally Here!

    This game seems very interesting, just downloaded the free quickstart rules to check it out. For people with the whole game, how easy does it seem to DM, meaning encounter creation and balance, and ease of hacking rules or modifying creatures without screwing everything up.

    D&D 5E Are Aura's burdensome?

    I do my gaming on roll20 with grid maps for all encounters, the 10' aura is not that big of a deal. With the way combat spreads out and people place themselves to not be grouped up for AoE effects it is usually just one other person benefiting from it. Do remember the nice benefit that some...

    D&D 5E Proficiency in Every Skill

    The DM can allow anything so that isn't a valid argument, the rewards section you mention isn't normal downtime activity it is a special boon given again by DM fiat and is in the same section as awarding titles, strongholds, and divine boons. A character can't just choose to spend X amount of...
