    D&D 5E Understanding the maths behind 5e

    I am currently trying to dive deeper into the mechanics behind 5e. I was fascinated with PF2s structured approach in this regard and therefore wanted to see how my favorite system (5e) compares to it. 5e overall is a little bit harder to understand, mainly because the material is not always...

    D&D 5E Your Favorite 5e Houserule

    One of my favorite things to do as a DM is to fiddle with the RAW to adjust them to my liking. And I am sure that most of you do too. I always like to hear what other people come up with in that regard. It is great inspiration and sometimes you find a well thought out houserule that you ask...
