    D&D 5E Camping outside the BBEG's door: yea or nay?

    A cinematic short rest I will allow before a big battle. Long rest, no way. The party will need to retreat, to safety, for a long rest. If they stay near the lair, they need to be hidden to avoid ambush. When the party returns to the lair, things have changed. If the party is lucky, some...

    Looking for good "against the cult" adventures - preferably urban

    What's your favorite encounter?

    This is an encounter I pull out every so often... not quite every campaign. PCs are tasked with delivering a package. They come upon a 100' long by 40' wide bridge. The bottom shrouded in mist. A stream or river is below. The bridge is old and has a few holes and areas of dry rot. Once the...

    D&D 5E concentration in 5th edition, whats your fix?

    I've kept as is. With a minor exception- a caster's familiar, if around, can maintain a second concentration. I allow all casters to cast find familiar. The familiar then makes the appropriate checks on the spell it is concentrating on.

    How would you RP an evil druid?

    I've always wanted to do a militant nature's rights activist. Bent on destroying civilization and returning to a hunter/gatherer society. Freeing horses from stables, and animals from farms. Burning down remote homesteads. If the druid had enough power, destroying small towns.

    D&D 5E What character generation method does your group use?

    I usually use 4d6k3 or 2d6+6... For my current game, I have 6 players. I had them generate 6 scores with 4d6k3, kept in order. I then built a 6x6 grid, & told them they could take any row, column, or diagonal as their stats.

    D&D 5E Re-opening discussion on multiple spell concentration.

    In my games, I allow casters to pass concentration of a spell to their familiars. If the familiar takes damage, it makes the concentration check.

    Another good youtube channel is Matthew Colville's. He has a 'Running the Game' series to help new DMs. Even as an old DM, his ideas helped me out.

    D&D 5E Skills Redux

    "- investigation is utterly unused and Also, finding out more by talking to people and visiting bars is a common action. There needs to be a skill for that." Talking to people and visiting bars, to gather information, sounds like a CHA + investigation check to me.
