    Into the Woods

    Dealing with the cult and it’s leader in the village of Ravens End hadn’t been easy and, in the end, even though you rooted out the source of the cult, which turned out to be the towns’ mayor, and dealt him the justice he’d deserved, The townspeople has treated you coldly. It was...

    5E [5e] One shot - Frolic and Fire [IC] [FULL]

    Quick DM's note: I’m glossing over a bunch of stuff to try to get to the “interesting bits”. Feel free to add as desired. The life of an adventurer is hectic and dangerous. At least some of the time. The rest of the time, unless you’re industrious and willing to work, it can be dull and not...

    5E Reccomendations requested

    I like 5e. In lots of ways it is what I wanted 4e to be before we got 4e. As much as I like it, it doesn't (currently) do what I want to do next which is a science fantasy vibe with flying galleons and dirigibles and blaster pistols and such (think Fantasy D&D meets star wars). I don't really...

    5E Rules question

    In my live D&D game we're having a rules question about dual wielding without the feat. I had thought that on the first attack you get Ability Bonus and proficiency on to-hit and Ability Bonus on damage and then on the second attack you only got Ability Bonus on to-hit. The rules seem to...

    MiPS Lost Mine Part II

    As the day wanes into night, the cart rattles on down the Triboar Trail towards Phandalin. Eventually, as the night settles, you are forced to stop or risk the oxen injuring themselves. The night is quiet and passes uneventfully and you all are able to get some much needed rest. The morning...

    5E Monstrous manual

    I just got my first real look at the 5e monster manual and realized that none of the monsters has a listed initiative bonus / penalty. I am presuming this is to support the 'talk first, fight second' idea, but there is a part of me that misses it. Oh well. if needed, I guess I'll just use the...

    spell conversion input

    I am working on converting a adventure from PF to 5e but PF has at least one spell with no 5e equivalent: Daze. From the PF source: School enchantment (compulsion) [mind-affecting]; Level bard 0, sorcerer/wizard 0 Casting Time 1 standard action Components V...

    Single session experiment

    This isn't 100% D&D 5e as it *could* work for most any RP system. I had an idea for a single session experiment where, as the Game Master, I would have access to all the scores, bonuses, levels, etc and the players would ONLY get the role-playing bits. I think this might be an interesting...

    MiPS Lost Mine [IC]

    History More than five hundred years ago, clans of dwarves and gnomes made an agreement known as Phandelver's Pact, by which they would share a rich mine in a wondrous cavern known as Wave Echo Cave. In addition to its vast mineral wealth it was quickly learned that the cave had immense...

    planning software

    I know 3e/3.5e had Dundjinni and 4e had Masterplan (which was fantastic) but, so far, 5e has a couple of excel sheets and that's it. I know Trapdoor is working on Dungeonscape for players and GMs but that doesn't seem to cover Adventure planning in the same way that the two listed examples did...

    5E Real XP, Building XP and Actual Play

    In designing an encounter for 5e, using the CR's presented for the monsters, I built what I figured would be a Medium to slightly above encounter. However, according to the Building An Encounter rules, this would have been a Deadly Encounter (mostly due to the number of creatures) and stated...

    5E Daze of edition past?

    I was reading (again) the 5B and saw that there is reference to being Dazed but didn't see reference to how to become Dazed or Daze others. Did I miss it or was it removed from Basic?

    5E PHB first look

    I got my first look at the PHB today and I was a bit surprised and, in a way, sad at how much of Basic is straight out of the PHB. In a way, I was hoping for more advanced options from "Advanced" D&D. As much as I like 5e, and that's a LOT, overall I'm underwhelmed at the PHB (again, first looks).

    I have not yet seen any rules for advancing NPC's. (eg: level 3 expert, level 2 commoner, etc). Do such things currently exist or no?
