    Pathfinder 2 Preview: Downtime

    I don't get the whole Path-Finder 2. Wouldn't Path-Finder 2 simply be 5e DnD?

    Colorado Springs looking for group

    Hi everybody. I'm in Colorado Springs and I'm looking to join or start a 5e, Traveler, Shadowrun or Star Finder game. Well, almost anything really! I've been playing table top rpgs since the 80s. I'm currently DMing a 5e game but the folks have a hard time getting together so I'm looking...

    Tales From The Yawning Portal - 7 Classic Dungeons Updated To 5E!

    If I recall-- didn't against the giants lead to Queen of the Demon Web pits? The Lost Tomb was really cool. I wasn't expecting that one. Glad it made the cut!

    Tales From The Yawning Portal - 7 Classic Dungeons Updated To 5E!

    All I'm saying is that if your Halfling thief sees a really, REALLY dark tunnel-- send in the damn wizard first

    Tales From The Yawning Portal - 7 Classic Dungeons Updated To 5E!

    Won't know for sure until it comes out, but the sense I got from the interview is that these have been over-hauled so much as to be basically new.

    Tales From The Yawning Portal - 7 Classic Dungeons Updated To 5E!

    I'm glad they didn't try to turn the piece of crap Keep on the Borderlands into an actual good 5e thing.

    Tales From The Yawning Portal - 7 Classic Dungeons Updated To 5E!

    This is awesome! But the world was a harsher place back then. Are players today ready for the TPK and other deaths that will happen in Tomb of Horrors and Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan? Getting killed by a trap is so impersonal and soul less. RIP my first character, a halfling thief. I'd say...

    D&D 5E Question about Druid in Wild Shape and Magical Item

    We are starting the Princess of the Apocalypse this weekend and I'm psyched to play an Uthgardt Moon Circle Druid. My plan is to cast "Good Berry" and put them in a pouch around my neck. Then, transform into a bear and keep the pouch around my neck, distributing the berries like a St. Benard...

    D&D 5E Low CRs and "Boring" Monsters: Ogre

    I recently ran a game where I had an Ogre pick up a squishy player and impale him on a stalagmite. You know the saying about how dumb criminals make for dumb cops? Boring DMs make for boring monsters.

    D&D 5E Which of a captain's stats should modify a ship's initiative? (Or the Ineffable Bond of Captain and Ship)

    Fun topic! I've been cruising and racing every kind of sailboat from a dingy to a 50' carbon fiber beast for years. It's all going to be INT and WIS. A person's STR won't do squat- even in a fantasy setting. Unless it's a super hero game, then maybe they could pick up the boat and bash...

    D&D 5E Need suggestions for Uthgardt Shaman 5e

    Hi everybody, We are starting a new campaign in a couple of weeks and I get to play instead of DM (hoorah!). I want to play an Uthgardt Barbarian Shaman from the Thunder Beast tribe, but there doesn't seem to be an easy fit. Here are some options I'm thinking: Sorcerer with the alternative...

    Unearthed Arcana Unearthed Arcana: Druid Circles And Wild Shape

    I don't like the Shepard name but I like the totem like spirit stuff. Will be good for my Uthgardt druid if I ever get a break from DMing. Instead of bear, though, go Thunderbeast!

    D&D 5E Running a zombie seige

    Try to paint a good picture of the mayhem and badness going on so that the players don't feel like they are just in a pod fighting the zombies near them. "As you fight, you catch a glimpse of a section of wall 30 yards away. Zombies appear to have enough bodies stacked outside that they are...

    D&D 5E a couple of noob rules questions

    Hi everybody, We played our first 5e game over the weekend (Lost Mine of Phandelver is great!) and I have just a couple of noob questions. shooting missile weapon/spell into melee: When a friendly is fighting a bad guy and other players want to target the bad guy, what is the penalty? I...

    D&D 5E Using movie plots in campaigns

    Back in the day, I ran a Heart of Darkness/Apocalypse Now campaign where Kurtz was in the Under Dark. It was a lot of fun and the Under Dark-- well, you can't get a better setting for Heart of Darkness!!!
