    Can we still post product announcements here?

    What is the policy now for starting product press release posts in the general forum? I know we did a trial run to see how it worked and I'm sure that's over, but what is the policy now? The Forum Rules section doesn't seem to mention it at all. We just released an exciting new...

    Pardon me if I'm blind, but is there a way to set up the subscriptions to renew automatically instead of needing to go in and manually re-subscribe?

    5E Dragon Kings 5e

    So I suspect that more than a few of us participated in Tim Brown's Dragon Kings Kickstarter campaign a few years ago, and were a bit sad that it predated both 5e as a full release and the new OGL. Well, weep no more: another company has picked up the slack and is producing a 5e Player's Guide...

    5E Check me on this: using a named NPC from, say, Mystara in a Dungeon Master's Guild publication is off-limits.

    I'm currently editing an adventure intended for publication in the Dungeon Master's Guild, and the writer chose to include a famous NPC who is NOT from the Forgotten Realms (or Ravenloft). That character needs to be changed, correct? As I read it the only stuff that can be used in DMs Guild...

    5E Hit Point Maximum and Exhaustion

    At level 4 exhaustion, a character's hit point maximum is halved. How would this affect a wounded character? A friend and I were discussing the situation and had two differing opinions, which basically boil down to interpretations of how hit point damage is applied. Let's say you have a...

    5E A Simple Spell-less Ranger Option

    I'm a backer for the current Talislanta: The Savage Land campaign on Kickstarter; I remember the Talislanta ads in Dragon Magazine back in the day, and since I run a pretty savage-era campaign I figured there could be some stuff I could loot. As part of the teaser for the 5e version of the book...

    5E When a rule is clear but leads to illogical efffects

    So we have all seen, ad nauseum, discussions of situations where vague or non-specific rules can make rulings challenging or complicated (how do characters with the Alert feat react to invisible creatures who are standing motionless?). But something that came up in my game last night that called...

    5E Active perception and the Observant feat

    One of the players in my campaign took the Observant feat at first level (all the PCs in my campaign are human). He has a 14 Wisdom, so his passive Perception is 17. So far so good. The issue came in when I called for everybody to roll Perception check against a DC of 15. He rolled a 12, which...

    5E EN5ider Conjured Horrors

    It's a little weird that Morrus hasn't posted this yet, but I got an email from Patreon a few hours ago saying the new EN5ider is up.

    Problems with setting a signature

    No matter what I put in for a signature (unless I put in just a couple of words), I get an error message telling me it's too long. For reference, my most recent attempt was the following:'Plot' is what the DM does to amuse himself when the players aren’t talking." - ShamusWhat gives? I see...

    How do I get a signature?

    No matter what I put in for a signature, I get an error message telling me it's too long. For reference, my most recent attempt was the following: "'Plot' is what the DM does to amuse himself when the players aren’t talking." - Shamus What gives?I know this isn't a 5e question, but there's...

    Primeval Thule Player's Companion just uploaded into backers' DTRPG libraries

    Or at least mine did. New barbarian path, cleric domains, druid circles, paladin oath, rogue archetype, sorcerer origin, warlock patron options, narratives, spells, feats, bonds and stuff for all the narratives. Looks juicy. It also states that since Thule has no dragons in the classic D&D...

    5E Adventurer's League for Shorter Adventures?

    So, a few of us (including me) have been harping on for some time about how we would like shorter adventures to play, instead of just the 1-15 story arc books. I noticed a headline on the D&D website this evening that nobody else seems to have mentioned: "D&D Adventurers League Content Open to...

    Has any game ever made the jump from Kickstarter to mass market?

    Kickstarter is great. It allows niche products to find their audience and be produced in a way that was never really possible before. But I worry a little that such a crowdfundig model is the future of RPGs, and I'm not really happy with that. Have any Kickstarter products made it to a mass...
