    Level Up (A5E) de-OGL-ifying Level Up?

    Donno, but I'm going to buy up at least PDF copies of the books I don't have just in case.

    Level Up (A5E) Getting Started With Level Up

    I'm running a canned 5e campaign. I just had my players build characters with the new heritage/class system. Most are used to 5e so it really wasn't a huge leap for them and they've taken to it just fine.

    Homebrew Level Up Roll20 Character Sheet is live!

    I'm using it to run a version of Dragon Heist. Yeah I have to update the monster stats. I've got the pack for the campaign via roll20, but when I created the game and had it use the 5e advanced character sheets, it played havoc with the monsters. The hp on the tokens on maps are still there, but...

    Level Up (A5E) Level Up content banned from DnDNext Subreddit for 'Piracy'

    Yeah, I'll give their subreddit some leeway with their bot flagging the .tools extension automatically. But the mod themselves just NOT understanding it is sad. But then again, not super surprising. I'll be honest, this is all I could think of after I read that quote.

    Homebrew Level Up Roll20 Character Sheet is live!

    Sweet. So far no issues. Well aside from having to go through and edit every monsters stats in my campaign. Though that's not on you all. But I'll be damned if I'm going to run Waterdeep Heist vanilla when I've got these LU pdfs. I've been wanting to switch over since they came out!

    Level Up (A5E) I'm worried that Create Water will break my party's cleric.

    True that. Though please note that my comment there was in response to Morris' statment that the spells in question no longer worked as they were in the latest PDF and had effectively been eratta'd by him today in the post where he said that Purify Food and Drink no longer purified food or...

    Level Up (A5E) I'm worried that Create Water will break my party's cleric.

    Sorry. I mean. Supply is just a simple term to help simplify the use of water and rations. The AG and TT pretty much lay out that it's just a way of measuring the amount of food and water a medium sized creature needs in a day. Specifically 1 pound of food and 1 gallon of water. So food and...

    Level Up (A5E) I'm worried that Create Water will break my party's cleric.

    Yeah, but that call just kinda seems, I donno, silly. Sorry. So the "Supply" concept was to basically simplify the food/water consumption requirements and make it easier to then modify them with abilities and such. The book says rations are basically a day's worth of food and water, and 1...

    Level Up (A5E) Need help with homebrew Kenku (mostly just C&C)

    I have a player who would like to run a Kenku in an upcoming A5E game I'm running. I'm not actually against the concept but that means it's homebrew time. I've got a rough concept here but I'd really like some suggestions about gifts and traits. The current gifts are taken from other heritages...

    Level Up (A5E) Looking for a Warforged Heritage

    Neat. I forgot about the first issue of the gazette. I'll keep an eye out for it then.

    Level Up (A5E) Looking for a Warforged Heritage

    I'm trying to convert my 5e game over and of course, one of my players is playing a warforged fighter. I'm not a fan of warforged but I don't want to slap the player with a demand to ditch their character. Has anyone created a homebrew warforged heritage for 5EA yet? It would save me some...

    Level Up (A5E) Level Up's Future?

    I'd correct you on one point. IMO WotC doesn't make adventures. They make big campaign books. We're really lacking in any smaller adventures or dungeons like we got back in the 3rd ed days. It's all big, and tbh not well organized at times, campaigns. Well, ok, to be fair Candlekeep Mysteries...

    D&D 5E helmets?

    Maybe, but I'd shy away from penalizing folks for wearing helmets. It might encourage player behavior in undesired directions.

    D&D 5E helmets?

    I don't quite get the aesthetics comment though. Does that one come up in your experience? What I mean is, it's an RPG, not a video game. So it's not like Mass Effect where you might select the "don't show helmets" option so you can see characters' faces during cutscenes.

    D&D 5E helmets?

    Keep in mind, most helms are probably less well fitting than a modern baseball helmet. You put a full helm on an elvish mage who's never been trained in how to move/fight in armor, he'd probably be kinda awkward. Maybe he wouldn't know that you wore a padded cap under it so it slides around? Or...

    D&D 5E helmets?

    I'd house rule it. If you're not wearing a helmet, you don't get the full effect of the armor. So if they aren't wearing a helmet, reduce the AC from that armor by 1.

    D&D 5E Military food in dnd

    For adding flavor to a game, I've introduced 2 different army meals into my games. Both with great effect. 1. Dwarf Bread - I stole this one from Terry Pratchett's Discworld books, but it carries over REALLY well. Believe it or not, there are still fantasy fans out there who haven't read...

    D&D 5E Yawning portal adventures: Best one shot?

    Against the Giants is a fun adventure. It's a little higher level since it starts with you fighting hill giants, but it begins with a raid on a wooden fort built by giants and turns into an odd dungeon crawl. I'll be curious how much of it they convert over. Will Lloth's magical dimension...

    D&D 5E What's the 5e equivalent of masterwork?

    I think Masterwork in 5e is less combat related and more of a role-play concept. The weapon is of great quality and value. Perhaps it's more durable or lighter, but it's more a matter of style than function. To be honest I think I prefer it that way.
