    D&D 5E So, I figured out why 5e's encounter building is broken(and how to fix it)

    The CR system says it is designed to tell a DM how tough baseline an encounter is. This holds true whether a party is megadungeon attritioning with multiple fights in a day trying to push resources to the limit, using milestones in a politics oriented story game where there might be one fight a...

    D&D General How Insane Is This Idea?

    I expect different D&D versions to be fairly easy. Most classes and races translate fairly well. Lots of people are familiar with core D&D and a number are familiar with different editions. It should normally be fairly easy to let people recreate their 5e characters into 3.5 using the SRD for...

    D&D General How Insane Is This Idea?

    When running a Pathfinder 1e game and the party went into the First World of the Fey where the rules are arcane and obscure and the world feels more ancient primeval and off I temporarily ran the game using 1e AD&D rules. I felt this matched the fey otherworld feel I was going for well. Part of...

    D&D 5E So, I figured out why 5e's encounter building is broken(and how to fix it)

    I mostly played 4e but I took the 4e monster role concepts and applied them to monsters in my 1e Pathfinder games and a little bit of elite and solo concepts in my 5e games. For elites I generally gave double hp and had their attacks affect two targets instead of one (twin spell effects, two...

    D&D 5E So, I figured out why 5e's encounter building is broken(and how to fix it)

    I wish there was more official advice on how to judge encounters for bigger parties. My face to face group has 6 players, so the baseline is not quite where you want it to be. For my four PC online group three of them have pet type things for action economy purposes which seems to throw off a...

    D&D General Best Adventure Path (spanning 10+ levels) of all time?

    Red Hand of Doom takes a group from 6th to 12th level so just shy of the OP's 4-14 minimum criteria. It was a lot of fun to play through.

    D&D General How serious are your D&D games?

    I can't imagine doing a zero humor Foglio themed game. Even doing it straight faced serious would be a subversion that was funny.

    D&D General Best Adventure Path (spanning 10+ levels) of all time?

    Do you mean the conjunction Hexad modules from 2e Ravenloft? Night of the Walking Dead (1-3), Touch of Death (3-5), Feast of Goblyns (4-7), Ship of Horrors (8-10), From the Shadows (9-12), Roots of Evil (9-12)? That sort of covers 1-12 with a bunch of gaps to fill. I ran 1-4 and they were...

    D&D General Best Adventure Path (spanning 10+ levels) of all time?

    There are a bunch of Paizo ones I really like. For me its a tough call between Carrion Crown, Reign of Winter, Wrath of the Righteous, and Iron Gods. I have run or played through the early modules in each and have not finished any of them. Carrion Crown is fantastic gothic horror, starting off...

    D&D General How serious are your D&D games?

    I do a straight plot as a base, but both the players and I generally have a bunch of humor in characterization and how things turn out. My D&D games usually go for and often achieve a very Army of Darkness tone, action horror comedy at a PG 13 level. Not Evil Dead R gory horror, but PG 13...

    D&D 5E Magic chainsaw stats?

    Realistically chainsaws would be terrible weapons as if it hit a snag, such as on metal spikes, the chain could snap at great risk to the wielder. But my D&D DMing style already has an explicit heavy Army of Darkness PG 13 action horror (comedy) tone as a goal, so having an Ash-style magic...
