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

    Yeah, it can probably sell well, especially with a show like Stranger Things basically being a promotion for it. ;)

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

    I am one of those who wanted smaller adventures. But yeah, I was not hoping for a re-hash of old ideas. It makes reading the adventures more work than pleasure, and it's less likely that I will buy them. I was hoping for something more modern, like Reavers of Harkenworld, which I think is the...

    D&D 5E Refusing To Heal Party Members?

    The title really doesn't say much, neither does your post. Is there a question there?

    There is one subscription for Pathfinder and one for D&D 5e

    D&D 5E Rogue Stealth in Battle

    That's a really good errata in my opinion. They only clarified what they ment by the initial text, but didn't state explicitly. Personally, I am treating the last seen location as a unhideable location. This makes the PC's in my game usually move around a little and makes a whole lot more...

    D&D 5E Current take on GWM/SS

    So, you think that 7 options of variants of "yes, it's a problem" and 1 "not a big problem" options is a balanced poll? It would be completely logical to have a another "Not a problem" option as well. It wouldn't coincide with your opinion on the matter, but that's not the point of a poll is it...

    D&D 5E Paladin Smite Damage Cap

    My interpretation of this: "the extra damage is 2d8 for a 1st-level spell slot, plus 1d8 for each spell level higher than 1st, to a maximum of 5d8." Is that the maximum relates to the extra for spending higher level spell slots. In other words 2d8+5d8 maxiumum (from a 6th, 7th, 8th or 9th level...

    April's D&D Feedback Survey Results

    The clue here is "sandboxy", not a sandbox adventure, which is a bit of an oxymoron. 5e should be really good at is, with the much larger range that monsters are useable as opponents. Adventures I liked that I found sandboxy are Red Hand of Doom and Reavers of Harkenworld. They are not...

    April's D&D Feedback Survey Results

    "There is a preference for more open, sandboxy adventures" Time to start delivering then! :)

    D&D 5E Useful Mobile Apps For 5e?

    This app really needs a better spell book, or even better, a way to import spells so you only need to write the spells once.

    FANTASY GROUNDS Virtual Tabletop's D&D License!

    It isn't about milking your customers, that wasn't my words. That was what I found condecending. If you look at what I write, I write that it's common practise to sell as much as possible, to as high a price as possible. If you look at what they say themselves, they do say that they have...

    FANTASY GROUNDS Virtual Tabletop's D&D License!

    A condenscendig tone, but probably true. It's pretty much standard practise to sell your digital stuff expensive to begin with, and then after a while, cut down the price to reach a larger market. Nothing wrong with that.

    D&D 5E Perception vs Investigation

    I would say that if you are occupied doing something that requires a skill check, you are at a disadvantage (or possibly, your opponents are at an advantage). Giving someone no chance to detect an incoming attack is something I would reserve for flying, invisible, silenced opponents. ;) The PC...

    D&D 5E The 5E Art is Awesome

    A good point. A complete scene instead of a character in a white room. Helps a lot when it comes to trigger the imagination.

    D&D 5E The 5E Art is Awesome

    I really like the 5e art. Same vibe as the art in 2e, but the women usually have normal amounts of clothes/armor.

    D&D 5E Why is WOTC so awful at providing digital content?

    No they aren't. Just look at what happened to their first attempt at this for 5e. It got cancelled.

    D&D 5E Would you change a monster's hit points mid-fight?

    I do the same. A good thing too, or one of the players getting critted twice in the first round of combat in one of the fights would probably have been even more annoyed. :D

    D&D 5E Would you change a monster's hit points mid-fight?

    Well, I did a comment at the end saying: " I am fine with fudging if you cleared the fudging with your players in advance. It's more of a play style thing, even if I think less fudging is better."

    D&D 5E Would you change a monster's hit points mid-fight?

    I don't really think this is true. I do think you have some good points, but look at your example. The PC's just assumed the guy was the good guy and did his bidding. Let's say the PC's are of a suspicious nature and did some investigation to find if the NPC was trustworthy. If you generated...
