    One D&D Permanently Removes The Term 'Race'

    My only problem with race in D&D is that in game it cludges together education and culture with biology. I'm aware of other problems, but that is what always bugged me. Like, I can get halflings having excellent hand-eye coordination or elven senses and such, but all elves learn swordsmanship...

    Level Up (A5E) "Kingmaker"-alikes

    Hello, everybody I was wondering what might be good for A5E for pioneers and settlement creation games? Kind of want to do a fantasy version of the video game Banished, but I'm not sure what resources would be key for such a project. It would want to be something with seasonal changes...

    Wizards Presents show on August 18th! Update: WotC announces guests and time.

    To the left are D&D types. The three on the right are probably all MtG.

    Level Up (A5E) Does the Devotion destiny fulfillment bonus last forever?

    I read it like that as well. You get a permanent +1 to those checks the first time you are revived in that way. If you are revived in that way again it doesn't improve to +2.

    That would be fun. They kind of wrote themselves into a corner there at the end, but it was a wonderfully weird place!

    D&D Movie/TV Here's The D&D Movie Trailer!

    I never pictured a black dragon's acid breath as puking up a stream of sizzling, dissolving glop, but.... damnit now I can't see anything else. It is marvelously gross and distressing and I love it.

    I'm quite pleased with it myself, thank you!

    Blog (A5E) Introducing Dungeon Delver’s Guide!

    "Why Dungeons?" I liked GURPS' explanation for this. Basically all confined, dangerous spaces you have to go in to retrieve something is a dungeon. Even if you are already in there and it is you that you need to retrieve right out of the place. Secret tech lab with guards and intrusion...

    Level Up (A5E) Advice interpreting the Rouge Skill trick "Scout Leader"

    It is useful though, everybody can move stealthily, the rogue is just ahead of the slower main group. If there is anything they need to drop back and warn the group of, there they go just doing it.

    Level Up (A5E) Detect Good and Evil Question

    I'm in agreement with his majesty JL. You'll know that something outside of the natural world is about, but not what. I'd name it something else for any game I might run though. "Sense of the Other" maybe.

    Level Up (A5E) Gnolls (and other evil things)

    Some Buddist guardian entities that would probably be angels in Western cathedrals straight up look like things that would be demons in the same art. So, a kneejerk reaction is probably normal, but refusing to listen to the people explaining things is just stubborn. "Why do these things in...

    Level Up (A5E) Parrying Weapons

    Ah, yes. The two-weapon fighting rule does specifically say it is a melee weapon you can use and the dual-wielding weapon property doesn't specify. Thanks, Anselm.

    Level Up (A5E) Parrying Weapons

    I think you can still attack with it. The only thing I can find that you need your off-hand weapon to be dual-wielding for is using a bonus action to make more attacks with the two-weapon fighting rule. Extra Attack on your character sheet? One swing with one weapon and one swing with the...

    Level Up (A5E) Parrying Weapons

    Yeah, maybe it isn't the best use, but is it forbidden is the curiosity. And a shield is absolutely better, unless you have an ability that says you can't have a shield and still use it. Yes, "You can only benefit from properties marked with † if you are proficient with the weapon."

    Level Up (A5E) Parrying Weapons

    Yeah, but if you aren't using two weapon fighting, then it doesn't matter if the weapon has the dual wielding property or not. Two weapon fighting only cares if you are trying to get more attacks in a round. Dual-Wielding†. This weapon is designed to be wielded in concert with another weapon...

    Level Up (A5E) Warning Strike Question

    You have to use a reaction to use Warning Strike and you only get one reaction normally, so you have to choose. Do you want the creature to stop adjacent to you, or stop 15 feet away for some reason?

    Level Up (A5E) Unreasonable Price

    I mean, sure if that happens I might not either. My thought was that a party might never have that choice to make. Also though, what kind of crossbow is it supposed to be? It just says crossbow. Hand? Light? Heavy? I suppose I might give it a +1 or +2 and say it is also a crossbow of...

    Level Up (A5E) Parrying Weapons

    Dual-Wielding just lets you use a bonus action for another attack with that weapon. I can't see anywhere that says you can't use a weapon in your off hand for other purposes, or even for an extra attack if you have one. Just have the scimitar in your main hand, use the short sword for...
