    D&D 5E A new spell for review

    So, I came up with this spell as a sort of last-ditch rescue spell. At first I wanted a reaction escape spell, so in a way it is a combination of misty step and revivify (except it doesn't really revive you, technically you're gone before you die). I figured that combining a 2nd and 3rd spell...

    D&D 5E Old School: No Revivify or Raise Dead for elves

    Several of the threads I've been following lately made me look back to AD&D days with nostalgia. Now, I know I wouldn't really go back playing AD&D, especially since the people I play with started with 3e or later editions, and they give me odd looks when I talk about the Glory That Was AD&D :p...

    D&D 5E Tales of the Old Margreve in Greyhawk?

    I'm toying with the idea of a (partially, at least) fey-themed campaign. I'd like to have it set in Greyhawk, but I'd like to use some of the material from the Tales of the Old Margreve (originally for Kobold Press' Midgard campaign setting). Also, I'm thinking of cold-themed fey as the...

    D&D 5E Wind strength effects in 5e

    It might be I'm just not looking in the right places, but I've been looking for wind effects by strength category in PHB and DMG, but couldn't find anything apart from the Strong Wind (p. 110) weather effect. Funnily enough, control weather allows for two categories above the strong wind (gale...

    Storm Sorcerer 10 thoughts

    I'm playing a 10th-level storm sorcerer in an ongoing campaign. We're playing in a fairly high-power game (all characters have a 20 in their primary stat, and some have 20s in their secondary stats as well). I'm generally happy with how the character turned out, except that I constantly seem to...

    D&D 5E Power Word: Stun and stunning strike level confusion

    I was poring over the higher level (6+) spells last night, trying to plan ahead which would make for a good choice for my sorcerer's repertoire, and I stumbled over power word: stun. And I'm a bit confused... monks get stunning strike as an ability at 5th-level. It uses up a ki point, a finite...

    D&D 5E Additional Minor Magic Item Properties

    I'm looking at the minor magic item properties on p. 143 of the DMG, and I seem to remember a longer list being released by the WotC at some point, as a pdf. I though it might have been an Unearthed Arcana article, but I can't find it in the archives (I remember it as the plain black-on-white...

    (Yet another) Improved familiar feat

    Greetings! For various reasons, I've decided to give the Improved familiar feat a go. The general idea behind the feat was to both give the access to the familiar to spellcasting classes other than warlock and wizard, and to boost the familiar to more closely resemble the familiars of previous...

    Princes of the Apocalypse, the four prophets (Spoiler Alert)

    Based on the air prophet picture above, I wonder if we're going to see the return of Murdock's feathery flyer spell :) (AD&D 2e Tome of Magic accessory) (although the membrane in the image does not seem to be covered in feathers :)) Regards.

    Slayer build sillyness

    I don't know whether this has been covered before, and if it has, I appologise. I just had to share :) A player in our group has made a Slayer to replace his shaman character in our Dark Sun game, now at 2nd level. In short, he made a human slayer (with a gladiator theme, but that's more or...

    Help with creating a DS character :)

    I'm toying with a character idea for an upcoming Dark Sun game where I'll be a guest for a session or two. I've already got a couple of ideas on what the character might look like when finished, but I think picking the collective brain might provide interesting results :) Here's the basic idea...

    A couple quick DS questions

    I'll be going home for two weeks at the beginning of October, and it might just happen my gaming group will gather for the first time in a long while. We'll be giving the new, shiny Dark Sun a shot :) I'll only be "guest starring" for a session or two, but I'm really excited about playing D&D...

    Items with always active properties held in off-hand with shield

    It's basically what the (lengthy) subject line says. One of my players asked me if an always active property of an item (a totem, in this case) will continue to work if the item is held in the off hand when the character is already using a light shield. He's aware that he can't use the totem for...

    Changing damage type of various powers

    Would you allow a player to change the damage type of a power for flavour reasons? Say you've got a player who wants to play a necromancer-type wizard, and he'd like to change an existing at-will spell to deal necrotic energy. So his proposed changes to Scorching Burst, for example, would...

    Powers that "duplicate" as basic attacks

    This has in all likelihood been covered before, but here it goes Certain attack powers allow the character to use them "as a basic attack". For example, the final line in the description of the duid's at-will power Rending Strike reads: Special: This power can be used as a melee basic attack...

    Infrequent gaming

    A bit less than a year ago I moved from my home town and my gaming group. It seems I was the spiritus movens for the group, because they stopped playing after I left. I go home about once every two months, and we usually meet for a session then. We tried a couple of one-shots, to see how...

    Any gamers in Kotor, Montenegro?

    Looking for D&D activity (preferably 4e) in Kotor area, Montenegro. Originally from Croatia, I've played D&D actively since 2e, and I'm fluent in both English and Croatian/Montenegrin/Serbian. Regards!

    Looking for D&D groups/players in Montenegro, Kotor or Tivat area

    I'll soon be moving to Kotor or Tivat areas in Montenegro, and I'm looking for D&D groups or players. I've been playing for about 15 years now with AD&D 1e and 2e, and D&D 3(.5)e and 4e rules. I'm male, 30, and I speak English and Croatian. Regards.

    Shadowfell Gloves and longer-lasting damage spells

    I'm having a bit of a problem with the shadowfell gloves. The description (PH, 247) says: How do the gloves interact with powers that last over several rounds (like maintainable spells)? For example, flaming sphere (Wizard Daily 1) does 2d6 + Int modifier fire damage on a successful hit. It...

    New troglodytes

    New Realmslore article is up at WotC (link). The article mentions troglodytes as the lich's servitors... and on the pic there's something lizard-like (the flying thing is, obviously, a gargoyle), but it's far bulkier than traditional troglodytes... then again, the lizardfolk concept sketch from...
