    Meet Kiliel and Aankia ON TITANSGRAVE

    Hm, I suppose that might be true, but I don't think that I would go so far as to say anything that uses a double vowel is therefore derived from Dutch (though the word 'aardvark', that Morrus mentioned, IS derived from Dutch: Aardvarken, translates into English as 'earthpig' ). ^^

    Meet Kiliel and Aankia ON TITANSGRAVE

    As someone from the Netherlands, this makes absolutely no sense to me. What makes you think the Saurian language would be represented by the Dutch language?

    Re-Thinking Dragons

    I've done the same thing as you for my world—exactly the same categories, actually (though I also have a desert/drought/wind dragon opposing the ocean/water/deep dragon). Besides the terrain dragons, I also have four other types that are a little more outside of the "here there be dragons"...

    D&D 5E Barbarian preview!

    He cuts down trees, he skips and jumps, He likes to press wild flowers. He puts on women's clothing And hangs around.... In bars? ;)

    D&D 5E Can you create YOUR character with basic D&D?

    Hm, I'd be interested in which of these you would deem not viable, and why. I'd argue any of these combinations can become at least an interesting and fun, if not viable, character.

    D&D 5E Wandering Monsters 10/30/2013: Trick or Treat?

    Of course it's okay for a DM to prefer to do this. This (part of the) discussion sprang from Derren saying that it was not okay to do the reverse (which is obviously his preference), by arguing that random dungeon features and the like are wrong and shouldn't be done because they appear out of...

    D&D 5E "Damage on a miss" poll.

    Some saying that "the people who like it probably won't mind it's exclusion, while the people that don't like it will abhor its inclusion, so let's just get rid of it", is basically another example of "I don't like this thing you like so (if it were up to me) you can't have it". It just adds an...

    Pathfinder 1E Tactician not a power gamer

    Hm, I'd say I'm a bit of a combination of... Butt-Kicker (I enjoy overcoming things - not just monsters, though) Power Gamer (I like leveling up and getting new stuff to use) Tactician (I enjoy the tactical aspects of combat) and.. Method Actor (despite all the gamist things I have, I do enjoy...

    D&D 5E Wandering Monsters 10/30/2013: Trick or Treat?

    It seems that this 'thin air' consists of similar stuff the creatures from random encounters are made of ;) Just as there are people who like to play with random encounter tables and ones who don't, I can see there are people who might like a random table for landmarks and such things. "You come...

    D&D 5E Sneak Attack: optional or mandatory?

    Yeah, exactly. Like I'd want for the Cleric to have Turn Undead be one of many options, I'd want Sneak Attack to be one of many options for the Rogue.

    D&D 5E Sneak Attack: optional or mandatory?

    I'd say making Sneak Attack mandatory for each type of Rogue is just as inappropriate as making Turn Undead mandatory for each type of Cleric. Not every rogue is a backstabbing assassin. Not every Cleric is an undead hunting follower of god (as in, not every deity cares about having its...

    Why don't you get a +1 ability score per level?

    Sure, let's never try to change something to fit our own style of gaming because it starts to bog down the game if you do it too much.. Like I said, depends on how you like to handle things. We're talking about a really insignificant piece of bookkeeping here. Something that only comes up when a...

    Why don't you get a +1 ability score per level?

    Wouldn't a minimal amount of bookkeeping solve this problem? I guess it depends on how you like to handle things.

    D&D 5E Playtested dat 5e at Gencon.

    I hear ya there. It would be nice if magic missile was a cantrip spell, which you could make into a magic 'homing' missile by spending a spell slot. So, normally it wouldn't auto-hit, but when you spend daily resources it does. Something like that. I suppose it's simple enough to house rule...

    D&D 5E Rethinking Ability Scores and Skills

    I like it. It solves the 'dead ability score increase' problem quite nicely, I'd say. Yeah, I don't really see how this idea has to force anyone to use a certain skill with a specific ability score. If people think the die addition increases the results too much, I suppose you could have it...

    D&D 5E How to handle attack bonuses in multiclassing

    1 1 2 2 2 2 2 3 3 3 3 3 4 4 4 4 4 5 5 5 -> Fighter, Barbarian, Paladin, Ranger 1 1 1 1 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 3 3 3 3 3 3 -> Cleric, Rogue 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 -> Wizard After a quick look, given the above, it seems to me that the attack bonus formulas go like this: Good...

    D&D 5E Money System in D&DN?

    Hm, yeah, I think I jumped the gun a bit there. I apologize. I think it was more with the general argument in the back of my mind that some people were making of having the gold hoard discovery causing inflation and therefore the prices being fine, that I didn't read your post right and wanting...

    D&D 5E Money System in D&DN?

    Be that as it may, basing the prices on an abnormality instead of everyday life seems to me to be absurd. Give guidelines for DMs to adjust prices when these things happen, if you really want to emulate this sort of thing. If your level 1 greenhorn (who by all counts would be your average...

    This is what I'd like to see as well.

    D&D 5E Humanoids, and playing monstrous races

    This would solve another thing that has been off for me with races in D&D.. Their racial traits are pretty much just of some impact at the lower levels, but once you get to a higher level you notice it less and less, because the only new things you're getting are from your class. If you unlock...
