    D&D 5E Advice wanted on Player Vs Player Situation

    I would straight up tell Harry, "Don't be a dick." Derek is here to play the game too and killing his PC is just going to upset him, especially after he went to the trouble of toning his character down to fit in with the party a little better. Tell Harry to find an in game reason not to cause a...

    D&D 5E Multiclassing more than once per level?

    I have to second this. D&D pretty tightly balances class and level, as such it rewards specialisation over broad skilling. Other systems are an open framework. I've recently been playing a lot of Savage Worlds and been loving the fast paced brutal combat. Tri-Stat dX is a free PDF. I think you...

    D&D 5E First literary concept of the "Adventuring Party"?

    One of the concepts that has always bothered me in D&D is the concept of the adventurer. There are very few examples (outside of D&D novels) where characters motivation is "to be an adventurer". Typically a characters motivation is much more personal: revenge, patriotism, saving a loved one, a...

    D&D 5E OK, 5e is a little broken sometimes.

    Which is why I think 5e has struck a nice balance. It's now a tactical decision and not a mandatory one. juggling resources like action economy, and spell slots, plus alternate strategies like temporary HPs ensure that healing is metered out only where needed and in effect making it far more...

    D&D 5E OK, 5e is a little broken sometimes.

    The restricted ability to heal in combat is an intentional design feature. Over-effective healing just makes for fights lasting longer and also takes the excitement out of combat. 5e went with the intentional design choice of healing for any particular level being modest enough to make it a...

    D&D 5E Improvised actions in combat

    Personally, I love non-standard actions in combat. This is where the narrative is and what sets role-playing games apart from nearly any other form of gaming. Every movie you've ever seen where someone outwits a more powerful opponent is due to non-standard actions. It's how the T-100 defeated...

    D&D 5E eldritch knight: how is this rule interpreted?

    The next paragraph: The Spells Known column of the Eldritch Knight Spellcasting table shows when you learn more wizard spells of 1st level or higher. Each of these spells must be an abjuration or evocation spell of your choice, and must be of a level for which you have spell slots. For...

    D&D 5E eldritch knight: how is this rule interpreted?

    Exactly what it says. You know 3 wizard spells. Two of which are restricted to those particular schools. Which means that 1 isn't restricted by school.

    D&D 5E RAW weapon question

    At my table "switching weapons" is a single object interaction and I think that was even clarified somewhere as being the intent of the rules (no, I don't have a reference). We simply decided that dropping a weapon should still be a free action, so that a player could drop a weapon and draw a...

    D&D 5E Alarm Spell vs. Illusionary magic

    EDIT: As a side note, this where as a DM I would have suggested that those players with the Arcana skill, make a roll and given them the opportunity for them to "know" the magical theory that I was operating under, with a successful roll I would say "Remembering back to some of your earlier...

    D&D 5E Psionics as sorcerer?

    One of the first games I ran when 5e came out was a one-off Dark Sun game where the Psion was just a refluffed sorceror. Permanent Subtle spell seems a bit strong, many psychics need to put their hands to their head when manifesting powers and let our grunts, groans, screams and verbal commands.

    D&D 5E Prestige Classes in 5e: What do you want to see?

    I'd like to see Prestige Classes implemented as trans-class archetypes. Either A) as a single archetype that is applicable across all class (i.e an Arcane Archer might get imbue spell arrow that is separate from spellcasting ) or B) an archetype that varies depending on the class. Arcane...

    D&D 5E When do players realize Turning Undead worked? (5e)

    Absolutely this. The idea that the undead shrieks in agony, then patiently stands there waiting for it's turn to run is ridiculous. There is no delay between the successful turning of the monster and it's attempt to flee. There is a matter of how many fractions of a second before it is...
