    Waterdeep Heist question on DragonWard

    It does not, dragonborn are humanoid creatures by type. I believe it would apply to half-dragon templated creatures though.

    Wayfinder's Guide to Eberron

    I have been using it in an Eberron game that I started recently. I have 1 Kalashtar, 1 Warforged and two Dragonmarked giving the use rate for that book as 4/4. My players have enjoyed the byte sized lore bits on each of the places, because it is easier for them to learn what they need to. In...

    What is your reaction to the Eberron news?

    If anyone wants to know who these announcements appealed to, you can just point to me. I am ecstatic about both announcements. My first full 5e campaign was set in Eberron and ended last year after 2.5 years of play. We took a break to explore other things, but my Eberron love was always there...

    Unearthed Arcana [5E] Unearthed Arcana: Races of Eberron (July 2018)

    Two options, one boring, one that sounds sweet to me. 1) It's really good at looking like other warforged. It can pass off as a dock worker warforged, a cook warforged etc. Give it that Hitman vibe. Meh. 2) It's like a replicant or the T-1000, has a skin layer and understands some of the basics...

    Unearthed Arcana [5E] Unearthed Arcana: Races of Eberron (July 2018)

    The use case is for ranged characters, or melee characters that want to move past a front line. So, if you are an archer, the enemy moves next to you, makes its attacks, then you can move 10 feet away, and not have to worry about taking an AOO or getting disadvantage to attack on your turn...

    How to break the multiclass spellcasting chart

    I guess I don't understand your reading of. "Spells Known and Prepared. You determine what spells you know and can prepare for each class individually, as if you were a single-classed member of that class." The example is quite clear. If you are a Pally 6 Bard 14 you are at 17th level according...

    Eberron It Is? [UPDATED & CONFIRMED!]

    I was already excited enough for Ravnica, but getting this on this day was basically the best possible. Reading over the guide now, it is very spicy. I love it. The writeups on all the races is perfect. Warforged definitely give that first read WOW! with their armor shifting abilities, but...

    Let's compile errors we have found in Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes

    The asterisk is referring to the Arcana Domain, which is in SCAG.

    D&D 5E Items that adjust Proficiency Bonus?

    The Ioun Stone of mastery does exactly that, and it's Legendary. Given how many things proficiency bonus touches it looks like they wanted to keep boosts to that low (Given that it's +skills, saves, attacks and is doubled with expertise). Something that blanket reduces your overall PB should...

    As a player: prefer Homebrew or Published settings?

    I voted other because I want to play in a setting that the GM is passionate and knowledgable about, without being to obsessed. In my own experience I have played with a DM who had read a great deal of the FR books in a FR game, and it's great, he knows about the world and it feels rich and...

    D&D 5E My Review of Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes is Live will also answer any questions

    After a more through reading not much changes for old elf lore lovers, I assume. Unless I am grossly misreading it, all good elves go to heaven for some time, then get reborn. Drow and heathen elves never get to go to elf heaven, and their souls just go where souls go. You can resurrect...

    Nerfing Holy Weapon for Xanathar's Guide

    How much damage do you think a 5th level spell should do? It's 1 hour with concentration, so I would expect it to last for 2 to 3 fights, less if your cleric doesn't hide every turn. Assuming a ~5 round combat our super buffed ranger gets an extra 2d8 * 5 (rounds) * 2 (attacks) * 3 (combats) or...

    D&D 5E What Am I In For With This Party?

    My quick take is that they are going to be destroyed by the dragon unless they get off a lucky disabling spell or do some exciting shenanigans like dimension door up to the dragon with the monk and stun it. One fun option might be to have the dragon fight among pillars of stone or something...

    D&D 5E Reliable Talent. What the what?

    I'm pretty firmly in the camp of "I don't find it to be a concern" both from a mechanical and from a storytelling perspective. My main lack of concern comes from the part where most of the dramatic storytelling comes from playing as a group. I had a level 11+ rogue in a Princes of the...

    D&D 5E I don't care anymore! The Magic shope is OPEN!

    I have something similar in my 5e Curse of the Crimson Throne game. Every in game month I generate a few treasure hoards and use the fairly handy Sane Magical Item Prices for 5e PDF to price what items are available in the store for the month. The party usually ends up buying a few potions then...

    Another Delve Into Xanathar's Guide To Everything

    Other than feats, new spells, new totems, new maneuvers, and new invocations what could existing characters get? This books has 3 of these so I think they're doing most of what they can for existing characters. New Maneuvers is fairly niche, so I doubt they will ever make new ones, and they...

    D&D 5E Can a Shadow Blade be your Chosen Hex Warrior weapon?

    I'm confused, for wizards it states they prepare their spells for the day when they finish a long rest "You can change your list of prepared spells when you finish a long rest. Preparing a new list of wizard spells requires time spent studying your Spellbook and memorizing the incantations and...

    D&D 5E Pros and cons of a sandbox game, and what to do about them?

    I have recently begun running games in what I would consider to be a truer sandbox than I have ever run before, and have been loving it. Here is what I do to keep it successful. 1) Make sure there are enough things the players know about and want to do something about. When we started I...
