    D&D 5E Have we misunderstood the shield and sword fighter (or warrior)?

    The kicker is he didn't even have to try. (I worked on the original Shrek, actually, doing shell startup scripts for the animators to navigate the digital resources. I also got to do the lighting on one very brief shot in Antz, the one where the fly says the crap tastes pretty good.)

    D&D General Why Editions Don't Matter

    D&D 5E Have we misunderstood the shield and sword fighter (or warrior)?

    I must admit, I would expect at least one straight line somewhere on the weapon to call it a "pole"-anything. :D

    D&D General Why Editions Don't Matter

    I'm a fan of mechanics, and particularly mechanics being known to the players. They help me quickly decide what I'm doing and how, without having to ask all sorts of probing questions to tease out what I'm allowed to do, while everybody else waits, or worse, checks out. They also help the DM...

    D&D 5E Have we misunderstood the shield and sword fighter (or warrior)?

    I played a rogue in a larp one time whose weapons and alchemy were his mother's bad cooking...a stale baguette for a sap, various failed dishes for poisons. His back story (me being nearly 6' tall) was, "Kieran love, you keep bumpin' yer head on the rafters, have ye thought about setting out to...

    By all means! Just don't look too closely or open any cabinets or drawers.

    What, exactly, is a 5e "scimitar"?

    Eep! Talk about a serious mistake. That's what I get for being sleep-deprived.

    Spell books

    I thought sorcerer's whole schtick was that their magic was innate and made all the poor book-bound casters jealous. Bring back rolling to learn a spell, too! Nothing like murdering wizards left and right until you finally find one with fireball in their spell book, and then you fail the roll.

    D&D 5E Have we misunderstood the shield and sword fighter (or warrior)?

    Too bad pitchforks aren't even on the weapon list. How is a person supposed to play an ex-farmer (or current farmer, I'm sure you can multiclass) when the weapon list doesn't even cover the basics? The closest thing is classified as a martial weapon! One of these might count as a proper long...

    D&D 5E Have we misunderstood the shield and sword fighter (or warrior)?

    I also wouldn't want to die on a hill from medieval weapons, but if I had to, there are worse ways to go than a sword! 😬 Yeah I'm not inclined to argue that Polearm Master makes any sense at all; it's just one thing in a loooong list of things in 5e that don't make any sense at all. Just like...

    D&D 5E Have we misunderstood the shield and sword fighter (or warrior)?

    Not to mention, it still doesn't alter the definition of the feat. That is to say, the definition of the feat remains the same, regardless of your definiton of "polearm". That is to say, what constitutes a polearm is irrelevant to this discussion. But for some reason I'm wondering now whether a...

    What, exactly, is a 5e "scimitar"?

    Druids can wear metal armor! They just won't. Edit: How the heck did that happen?!

    Wow this spat has legs. Or maybe stilts, which are practically poles....

    D&D 5E Have we misunderstood the shield and sword fighter (or warrior)?

    Yeah I still don't think the Polearm Master feat cares about anything but the exact weapons it lists.
