    D&D 5E PC races that a DM has specifically excluded from their campaign and why

    Kender, from day 1 (Tho I liked Tas's character in the books). I had a couple of players who would have played one but didn't want to "play" a Kender, they just wanted a reason to be obnoxious in the D&D game; and bragged about planning to play that way.

    D&D General WotC: Novels & Non-5E Lore Are Officially Not Canon

    Eh, doesn't surprise or affect me. For example: I have my own timeline for the Forgotten Realms going back to 2nd edition, due to the actions of my players and from the adventures I wedged into my games (modules from other worlds and my own material). Old PCs have become NPCs in future games...

    D&D 5E Cinematic Advantage

    When a friend of mine runs a game, in any edition or system, he gives advantage in roles (in whatever form that system takes) when a PC does something Errol Flynn-ish in style and execution (he was a big fan of the Errol Flynn antics in movies). There were some brilliant successes, and some...

    Rules FAQ How Does Exhaustion Work in D&D 5E?

    There is an old 1st edition spell called Dispel Exhaustion. It was in the Illusionist spell list. You could modify it for 5e.

    D&D General Does anyone else title their D&D sessions?

    I've titled my campaigns and many of the DM's have named the campaigns I've been in. A current game that I playin the DM allows the pc's to write up a character POV narrative and he writes up kind of a What actually happened. I try to come up with a creative title that is at least somewhat...

    Which books do you re-read regularly?

    I had a similar problem but on the other end. I tried to read through The Black Company but couldn't get through book 1. I plan to go back to them at some point and try again. One of the things I like about the Garrett books is that there are 2 stories going on if you read through more of...

    D&D 5E What is the most played published adventure on your table?

    Desert of Desolation (I3-I5) [4 different groups and added elements of Dune into it], Against the Cult of the reptile God (N1) [3 or 4 groups], and The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh (U1) [Lost track, but never ran it past the 1st module in the trilogy due to the players wanting to head off...

    D&D 1E Crowdsourcing suggestions for 1e or 2e module for a 5e game

    I've run the Desert of Desolation (I3-I5) for four different groups back during the 2e timeframe. It always ran well for me. The super module blends them together a little better then the individual modules. I can't say it will run well for every group (or your group) but I've had success...

    Suggestions for a module to run after "against the cult of the reptile god"?

    This sounds like a fun combination. I may try that.
