    D&D 5E Vicious Dagger question

    Hive mind, help! Vicious Dagger does 7 extra damage “when you roll a 20”. Would you rule that it would deal its extra damage on an improved critical (eg L4 Champion Fighter on a 19 or 20)? (I have a gnome MC Fighter/Rogue in my game who likes to TWF fight with two daggers and thought would be...

    Basic D&D

    Does anyone still play Basic D&D? Red Box/Expert etc. ive introduced some friends to 5e and showed them the AD&D PHB. Their reaction was, how the hell did this game last so long? Then I showed them the basic set players manual and they were so impressed with the walkthrough adventure (Bargle...

    Change a letter, ruin a spell - Xanathar edition!

    I couldn’t find my original CALRAS thread to cast Threadromancy on, so here’s a new one. Simple format - change one letter, ruin a spell. But only from Xanathar’s, this time. I’ll start: Druid Grope: a more intimate Hold Person. Druid Spell so usually used on trees. Earth Trevor: summons a...

    Fighting Fantasy

    So, I’m having another nostalgia rush following the news of Fighting Fantasy reissuing a bunch of their classic Gamebooks from the Eighties, along with a brand new book written by Charlie Higson of The Fast Show fame. I still have the original first three - Warlock of Firetop Mountain, Citadel...

    D&D 5E 5e airships

    Hello, Can anyone recommend a good source for airships for a 5e campaign? Mechanics of flight manoeuvrability, deck plans, etc? Any feedback on usage especially re any game breaking or, conversely, awesomeness that suddenly possessing one might bring. Thanks

    D&D 5E Two Weapon Fighting

    Just checking I've got this right: anyone can fight with two weapons, so long as they are Light (PHB p195). Restrictions: - Only Light weapons - No Ability Mod to damage (unless it's negative) for second attack - Uses a Bonus Action - No negative to hit that I can see? Best damage from a Light...

    D&D 5E Chromatic Orb

    You can use your spell casting focus instead of material components except where there is a cost for the component listed. Chromatic Orb requires a diamond worth 50gp. But it's a level 1 spell - is it just me or does this seem a bit of a nerf for low level PCs?

    D&D 5E #ChangeALetterRuinASpell

    I saw a similar thread linked to in another site (can't recall where now), but inspired by Twitter I thought it might be fun to play this game. We'd be hard-pressed to beat Tasha's Hideous Daughter that I saw there but how about these (apologies if any replicate what others have done elsewhere...

    D&D 5E First impressions last

    I know this is a 5e thread, but a question about "why play a cleric" led me to think back to my first experience of D&D (Mentzer red box), and think about how my attitudes to classes have been influenced from that first exposure, and specifically the visual cues the rules gave my 10 year old...

    D&D 5E Bats and Silence

    Bit of an odd one... Faced with an angry colony of bats, one of my players cast Silence on the basis that their echolocation wouldn't work, and so they'd get confused and fly into one another, the walls, and then the floor. Not being an expert, this seemed reasonable and 'out of the box', so I...

    Anyone else having these issues? - automatically adds 2 of any item to basket - won't process payment, returning simply 'something went wrong' Never had issues with Drivethru and they're meant to be linked. It's doing my nut.

    D&D 5E Funerals

    Help me ENWorld Kenobi, you're my only hope. Does anyone know of a short adventure or a setting where a funeral takes place? Preferably a noble one, a big deal, and ideally involving dwarves? Need some Inspiration... Set up: post-Phandelver: careless party managed to let Gundren die in the...
