    The Play's The Thing: The Importance Of Playtesting Games

    So, what about En World open a special forum just to playtest things? Designers would have a place to get some playtesters and people willing to commit to a playtest would love the chance. I know that are issues with secrecy with playtesting material, etc... But it would be a start. :)

    D&D 5E Classic or just plain brilliant adventures/modules

    THIS! The most fun (and dangerous) campaign arc I ever Dm'ed... Well, the Tomb of Horrors was more dangerous, but sounded more like the Paranoia RPG... The Dragon Mountain, on other hand, makes my players REALLY hate kobolds. Normal kobolds, not super-kobolds... Normal kobolds that defied a 9th+...

    D&D 5E Is the Tarrasque tough enough?

    Not Godzilla there... That Gargantua came from a classic story: Gargantua and Pantagruel (written by Rabelais on 1500-and-something).

    D&D 5E Monsters You Miss

    Kaorti Juggernaut (I love these "guys" and the face of the players when they see one :P ) Derro Aurumvorax Nymph Abishai Gem dragons Beholder: Eyeball (as familiar to Great Old Ones warlock) Nightwalkers And... Many more NPC-like monsters as that ones on Apendix B.

    D&D 5E Any interest in the not-quite-so-wild mage?

    I am thinking the same, more in line with the Paradox from the WoD Mage games.

    D&D 5E Does anyone who got an mm at Gencon want to offer up spoilers to us?

    If I remember well, this was voted on Wizards' site: "succubi: demons or devils?". And, I think that "both" was the winner, so the succubi here is supposed to go with the majority of voting people :)

    D&D 5E MM table of contents and stat block index

    I noticed some entries on plural: skeletons, zombies, beholders... More than one type :)

    D&D 5E Perform Skill & Instrument Proficiency redundancy

    It is interesting how different people have different oppinions of things. For me, tool proficiencies are one of the most awesome ideas of 5e. I really love them.

    D&D 5E Current state of the Forgotten Realms

    No, the timeline is still advanced (about 10 years after 4e). And the state of things is returning even more, restoring gods as Bhaal, Myrkul, and even Leira, while still keeping "new" gods as Kelemvor and Cyric. To resume the situation, Ao is very pissed.

    D&D 5E Half-Dragons and Dragonborn: What's the difference?

    In the Realms, dragonborn are native from Abeir and came to Toril when the worlds merged. Probably some stayed around when Ao separated the worlds again.

    D&D 5E Sundering - So what happened?

    You are right. And the high magic spell reverberated through the spacetime... Both forward and back in time. The actual Sundering is somewhat connected with the "forward in time" from that casting, but the exact details remain to be reveled yet.

    Good distintion, I think.

    D&D 5E Finally

    Are Kelemvor and Myrkul mentioned as gods of what? To me, both are gods of death, just in a different way.

    D&D 5E Sundering - So what happened?

    This was before you discover that Larloch is Chosen of Mystryl (yes, not Mystra or Midnight, but the original Mystryl) and before he absorbed all the wards of Candlekeep and got the power of a demigod (according Shar).

    As a side note, dwarves also have a special name for theirs: Morndinsamman

    D&D 5E Legends & Lore 8/4/14: Here Comes the Player's Handbook

    I bet the ancient gold dragon benefit is that you have a old brother that breath... ahem... spank that ones bullying with you at school :P

    D&D 5E Equipment posted~ pics

    Online Etymology Dictionary (I love this site): "to fire a gun," fire in the second sense being from "set fire to gunpowder," attested from 1520s.

    D&D 5E Phandelver Rogue Clarification

    You are right... I was reading this the wrong way. My apologies. But, then, there is not a rule you have always disadvantage when firing a target in melee combat. I was pretty sure there was a rule some that, but I was not able to find it anywhere in the basic. Perhaps something from playtest...

    D&D 5E Phandelver Rogue Clarification

    [/LIST] His opponent gets cover if in melee no matter the angle of the shot. The rules assume that no one will be "frozen" in place while combating in melee... Even if he shoots at back of the creature and his ally is at front of the creature, cover applies by rule (the creature can just dodge...
