    Looking for a good system to use for my world

    So, I have been worldbuilding for a while on a world without a name, and would like to try and find a system that reflects it better than the one system I currently know (D&D 5E). I thought I'd come on over here and make my first post in forever to see what systems you all think would be able to...

    I'm making an rpg

    Hello everyone! I was on here a long while ago quite frequently, mostly lurking and sometimes posting ideas that not many people really liked. Since I started rpgs I have been most interested in what I can do with them, how far I can push the boundaries of what the current rules allow, and what...

    D&D 5E Pros and cons of a sandbox game, and what to do about them?

    I plan to shamelessly take advantage of this community's wisdom and knowledge, so I have some basic questions with complicated answers. I will be running a game for new players, and after some time teaching them the rules I plan to kick it off in my own world as a sandbox game. What are the...

    D&D 5E Building a dungeon that Meta-games

    Warning: I know of at least one user on here who's head might explode if you read this. It is about Meta-gaming, so consider yourself warned. I had an idea a couple days ago, and decided to post it here now that I have my thoughts straight. Has anyone seen a Living Dungeon? It is sentient, it...

    D&D 5E Items that scale with level, discussion

    I like the idea of giving my players unique magical items, which work only for a single character, which increase in power as they get stronger. For example, I will be playing in a Party of 2 game soon, and the DM said she didn't care what we did with our characters. Any combination of homebrew...

    D&D 5E Warlock Homebrew changes

    More homebrew stuff, I am on a roll. Next goal, change the Warlock. Patrons will be secondary, while Pacts will be the primary subclass. I have a few ideas for this. You will still gain your Patron spells, and will get an Invocation at 1st level, and the Patron abilities at 1st level will be...

    D&D 5E Do you have a personal Players Handbook?

    No, not the default PHB. I mean a custom PHB with your own rules and world information. I am asking because I plan on making my own. It will have a Chapter for how my world is different from the default assumptions, contain my homebrew races/classes and the official or 3pp options I allow. The...

    D&D 5E Ranger sublcass idea- Arcane Archer

    I just can't stop starting new threads that sidetrack me away from my previous homebrew work. Oh well. Here is the idea. Ranger gets the Arcane Archer Subclass. Gets to choose a single type of arrow at 3rd level, and eventually has 3 types by level 20. Why so few? Because each arrow comes with...

    What happened to Signatures?

    There used to be signatures available in the settings, but I can't seem to find the option anymore. Was it changed in some way? is it hidden for some nefarious purposes?

    D&D 5E Making 5E a short rest game

    I have had a coupe of threads focused towards changing the Long rest casters into Short rest ones using the Warlock Chassis, but just started thinking earlier (about 10 minutes ago, as I was writing a response to someone in a different thread) about a better way to change them. What if full...

    D&D 5E IDEA: International Dialects of English Archive, what do you use?

    So, I was watching a video on Youtube, a fireside chat with Mathew Mercer, and he mentioned the IDEA at one point. I thought it might be interesting to bring it on here, and see what people use. What dialects do the races in your world use? Where, on...

    D&D 5E Converting Druid to Warlock Chassis

    Gonna convert Druid over to Warlock chassis as well, after I get more work done on the Cleric. For now, I have some ideas I want to get down and get input on. Shapeshifting will be for Moon Druids. This is a big one, because of how many levels it affects. 2, 4, 8, 18, and 20th level features...

    D&D 5E Bladesinger vs. Valor Bard vs. Bladelock

    All Full casting classes with a little melee, so they should be roughly equal. Bard has a lot of support on his spell list, so he should probably be tankiest (as he is with his proficiencies). Bladesinger should probably be the lightest, since he has the most flexibility in his spell list. That...

    D&D 5E homebrew Cleric Changes discussion

    I started thinking on some Cleric changes to apply to my world, ways to make them more interesting as a class. I am leaning heavily towards more Warlock-like changes, since I think Warlock and Cleric are two sides of the same coin. To that end, here are some of my changes Going to happen...

    D&D 5E UA Artificer help

    One of my players is going to be playing an Artificer Gunsmith, and I have some questions. 1) Does anyone have an extended list of the selectable magic items? I can dig through the DMG and make my own list, but wouldn't mind having a head start. 2) Is Thunder Monger at 3rd level just an...

    D&D 5E Giving Ranger Expertise

    I am thinking of giving Rangers in my games Expertise, at the same level as Bard. I feel like it fits their area very well (Expert woodsman/wildman), and honestly would fix one of the biggest problems I have seen people have with them. The fact that Fighter can be a ranger just as well as a...

    D&D 5E Porting Grim Dawn (CRPG) to D&D 5E

    A friend of mine quite likes Grim Dawn, a Diablo-esque CRPG, and I have been having thoughts on how to port it over to D&D. I have not personally played it much myself, so I will be working off of the Wiki for this. Initial design thoughts Masteries (classes) Each class will be treated like a...

    D&D 5E The Thousand Disciples of Shefu Daylong

    So, I was working on some characters, just for fun, and arrived at a fun concept for 1000 characters. one thousand disciples of Shefu Daylong, the Master of the Fist of The Golden King (He is a gold dragon with 20 levels in Sun Soul Monk). They need not all have pseudo-chinese names, but I would...

    D&D 5E Iron and Adamantine Dragonborn?

    I don't like the whole Bronze/Brass/Copper relationship. I have seen some talk of Iron and Adamantine dragons, so I want to use them instead. Since I am currently working on my world's Dragonborn, I actually need to know what breath weapon and resistance they would gain. Anyone able to help with...
