    D&D 5E Rationale behind updated Spell Lists in Tasha's Cauldron

    I haven't seen this anywhere, does anyone know what are some of the guiding rationales behind the additional spells from PhB and XGtE added to class spell lists in Tasha's Cauldron? They make a decent amount of sense, I was just wondering if there was either an official message about how they...

    D&D 5E Skill Challenge System PEACH

    So I haven't gotten everything worked out just yet. However I'm thinking of a skill challenge system that is designed around the combat math. Basically after playing Numenara, I liked how all three pillars pull from the same pool of resources, and I was thinking if the most developed part of DnD...

    D&D 5E Looking for a castle siege dungeon crawl

    Does anyone know of a Castle Siege dungeon crawl? I'm looking for some ideas beyond just several rooms of encounters. Something on DM's Guild or even something from a previous edition that would be good.

    D&D 5E Help Running Amber Temple CoS (Spoilers)

    My characters have entered the Amber Temple. Their loving the sarcophagi, but I'm starting to get a little concerned about how much power they are drawing from them. I've limited the sarcophagi to only giving their gift to one party member, but do the sarcophagi power them up too much? If people...

    D&D 5E Save or Suck Spells and Players

    Hey everyone, I'm running PotA and we've hit 9th level. My sorcerer player is starting to outshine all the other players and I'm wondering if anyone else is coming across this? Right now he has absolutely trivialized combat encounters that according to the DMG formula are supposed to be deadly...

    D&D 5E Questions about Reaching the end of "Princes of the Apocalypse" (Spoilers)

    My players are starting to reach the end of PoA and I was wondering about the Nodes. They killed Gar Shatterkeel in the Temple of the Crushing Wave, and they will be possibly slaying another prophet in the Fane of the Eye. Is there a reason for them to visit the nodes of dead prophets? Part of...

    D&D 5E Question about Drown in PotA (Spoilers)

    Drown is the only one of the weapons listed as a +1, with the others as a +2. Is that a mistake or was it on purpose? Since they only get one of the weapons for awhile (and they went to the Temple of the Crushing Wave first) that is the one they have, and I want the +2 to make it feel...

    D&D 5E Tomelock with Shillelagh and Greenfire

    I was thinking of trying to make a little bit of a tomelock/bladelock hybrid by choosing Shillelagh and Greenfire Blade as two of my cantrips (3rd level with pact, and 4th level just in time for 5th level buff) what do people think? Not quite certain of my party (a lot of open table stuff with...

    D&D 5E Princes of the Apocalypse - More Magic Items

    My players are getting a little grumpy about the lack of Magic Items in the Princes of the Apocalypse, and I kind of want to see how Magic Items play out in 5th edition. As the book is written I am only handing out magic scrolls that very few of my players can use. I could use some...

    D&D 5E Tidal Wave Vs. Fire Elemental

    While running PoA my players came across a fire elemental which my Druid immediately responded to by casting Tidal Wave, and since I didn't fully read the rules on Fire Elemental then did it on the second round. If for each gallon of water it takes 1 pt of damage, and two tidal waves contained...
