    D&D 5E How often do you use the versatile property?

    My Mountain dwarf bladelock uses a battleaxe one or two handed depending on the situation. He likes to have one had free for casting the odd spell should that be needed. Doesn't come up that often but it's not that much damage lost and adds to the fluff of the character.

    D&D 5E Hobgoblin Leaders

    In my mindhobgoblins are roughly equivalent to Klingons. They might all have different jobs but every one of them is a warrior at heart. There is no such thing as a klingon civilian, hence a misunderstanding between cultures when hobgoblins (Klingon) massacre or enslave entire peoples. They...

    D&D 5E November 2015 interview with WotC CEO and D&D 5e sales

    There's more to it as many people who found D&D inaccessible because of the splat books have returned and bought the new rules. People who haven't played in years and years. It's also more accessible for casual RPGers, you know like the guys who play the miniature wargames at the same store...

    D&D 5E Witch Elf Character (inspired by mini)

    So as my miniature collection is rather large from my war gaming addiction, I often like to convert a nice mini that I can use as a character. I have a very nice converted witch elf model that I would like to use as the inspiration for a drug induced frothing lunatic in an upcoming campaign...

    D&D 5E Does Eberron need to be high fantasy?

    Relax there. Don't put words in my mouth. If I didn't care what Keith thinks then I wouldn't read his blog now would I. He has a number of posts on how disappointed he is. I simply stated that despite Mr. Bakers original intent the Silver Flame is not what it was originally intended. Either...

    D&D 5E Does Eberron need to be high fantasy?

    It's to bad Keith has nothing to do with Eberron anymore. I read his blog and its obvious the world has grown away from what he intended. In particular the Silver Flame and the fact that archery was supposed to be the weapon of choice for its priests. However as Keith has nothing to do with...

    D&D 5E SCAG Half-Elf Variant

    And thus was born sunlight sensitivity option to shut up the fanboys and get rid of all the drow rangers cluttering up the tabletop. I personally play a Drow knife fighting rogue. He just wears a really big hat, all the time. There are those who go for power and those who go for character...

    D&D 5E Does Eberron need to be high fantasy?

    Yes Harry Potter is a good example of high fantasy as there are three subgenres of high fantasy, 1- setting in which the primary world does not exist. That is, the primary is either separated from the setting entirely, or is separated from it by a great distance in space and/or time. 2 - The...

    D&D 5E Does Eberron need to be high fantasy?

    High fantasy is defined as fantasy set in an alternative, fictional ("secondary") world, rather than "the real", or "primary" world. The secondary world is usually internally consistent, but its rules differ from those of the primary world. By contrast, low fantasy is characterized by being set...

    I'm running a campaign that uses modified Lizardfolk from the Kobold Press Southlands publication. One of the capabilities is a natural bite attack. As one of the players is making a barbarian lizardfolk in order to head off the obvious I need some advice. If you have a natural attack that...

    D&D 5E Changing Spell Elemental Damage

    You can do it with the spells listed for sorcerer. Quite frankly most sorcerer spells you will be taking don't have anything to do with acid damage at all, Sleep, Magic Missile, Shield, Haste, Invisibility, Counterspell, Wish, etc... once you realize this then all of a sudden the acid damage...

    D&D 5E The "Lawful" alignment, and why "Lawful Evil" is NOT an oxymoron!

    Definitely LE. There are many times that he teamed up with Richards vs a greater crazier evil, and also times he spared Richards because in harming him it might harm his family (dead mother), people, country and my favourite... art collection. He has a personal code of honour (Lawful), won't...

    D&D 5E The "Lawful" alignment, and why "Lawful Evil" is NOT an oxymoron!

    Lawful Evil examples: Dr. Doom Magneto Fascists Dictatorships (LN are benevolent dictatorships) Darth Vadar -nothing weird or incoherent here. Want to be in charge, use rules for a reason. Use laws for their own advancement. Use laws to be oppressive. Have a personal code of conduct that...

    The 5e -Sohei, Oriential Adventures Style

    Yah I debated a bit with myself on whether it was a monk based class or a barbarian type class. At the end of the day it was the weapon and armour proficiencies that made the decision for me. Flurry of blows with a naginata seemed just too powerful mechanically. Also historically these guys...

    3 out of 5 rating for Midgard Heroes Not a bad product especially in the digital form. Less errors in it than the previous Southlands Heroes, and no references to books that are not in 5E format like that release as well. A redo of the minotaur in the product so if you have southlands heroes...
