    GM Advice: Learn from Kids TV Shows

    Last night while watching PJ Masks with my 4 year old I thought of a theory I'd like to share. I think that most GMs could learn a great deal from writing adventures like kids TV shows.

    5E Non Variant Super Humans

    I've just started playing at a local store and found that the houserule there is that normal humans get +1 to each stat that is odd and +2 to each stat that is even, up to a maximum of 16.

    Solo Characters

    In my current gaming, I play and GM mostly single player games. I find that this brings up a very unique style of play, one that I actually prefer to multi-player games at this stage.

    Marks "Attack that does not include you..."

    Hello all, I have a rather newbish question, which is a little embarrassing as a DM. With regards to triggering defenders' marks (more specifically, the punishment factors like Mindspike), what constitutes an "attack that does not include you amongst its targets"? AE effects in which you are...
