    D&D 5E MPMB's D&D 5e Character Tools

    Eh, fair enough points. I still think that my conclusions are sound, and I'm sure that I saw a note to that effect somewhere- Maybe it wasn't on Twitter, but that one Q&A site that I haven't been able to find again . . . or maybe it was on Twitter, but can't be found anymore because Twitter...

    Do You Want 400 New Magic Items For Your D&D 5E Game?

    The example page shows that the authors have not acknowledged the errata that everyone is always proficient in unarmed strikes. That doesn't bode well . . .

    Sorry for the delay. Computer problems. Back to 2, responding to your last comments Resistance to radiant damage is way too good. Notice Protection From Energy, a Lv3 spell with the same duration. Speaking of Lv3 spells, you've read Magic Circle, right? No matter what you do to this, it'll...

    Yeah, you did cover it, but it keeps coming up so much that I figured that spelling out the process in a "For Dummies" manner might be appropriate. Hmm . . . Ah, you know what? It's 2016. If people can't think to try right-clicking and reading context menus, they must be used to looking up...

    The SCA proofreading is gonna' have to keep waiting for a while, but I figured that I should stop by to recommend something for the FAQ: To save an image as a character portrait, it must be a PDF file. If you have an image file, you can download Foxit Reader, right-click the file, select...

    Am I doing it wrong?

    A . . . quarter below his HP? Is that . . . Are you playing second edition while also trying to care about balance? What sorcery is this?! Thanks for the follow-up. When you sent this skirmisher devil after this guy and it tore him down, what advice rung in your mind as what brought you to this...

    Armaments of the Forest: This could really stand a language clean-up (I'll do that for ya' later.), but it otherwise looks good, now. Buoyancy: I still say that this should be a reaction, which you take in response to a creature sinking. Explosion: This looks better. I see that you based part of...

    First, I should comment on the "Arcane Archer" that half of everyone is trying to make: Eldritch Knight already is an arcane archer. It just isn't stuck in archery. If you want, you could make it more archery-flavored as seen in the next paragraph, but it already has the mechanics that you want...

    D&D 5E Many Homebrew Spells for D&D 5e

    Earth Blast: I meant that you could just take MMM, give it this name, change its school (likely transmutation, but conjuration works if you summon rocks in stead of using the ground), turn the range to 90 feet, replace "meteor" with "boulder," replace "fire" with "bludgeoning," slap it onto the...

    D&D 5E Many Homebrew Spells for D&D 5e

    Criticism: Let's keep the discussion simple and assume that magic items, multiclassing, and splicing via feats and features is mostly ignored because that is already a built-in consideration for those that get that stuff. 0 Dazzle feels like it's stepping on the bard's territory. Are you going...

    Am I doing it wrong?

    Everyone keeps saying that you can't be in the wrong as long as your players are having fun, and there's merit to that, but consider these angles: How comfortable are you? How much fun are you having? Could changing things up provide more fun to the players and/or you than you anticipated? I...

    Rage: Oh, that's a nice workaround! That looks good to me. Yeah, I just kinda' left it implied that it was tracked from end of last turn to end of this turn because that's how the game works, but it's nice to have it spelled out for the people who don't yet fully conceptualize the mechanic of...

    Astromath: Much of OpenOffice's original staff went over to LibreOffice. Enough said, eh? MPMB: Aye, aye, thanks! Okay, let me take a crack at that last line of that barbar code. The problem with yours isn't just a grammar error; you're still phrasing something unclearly. When you say "not...

    I apologize for dropping off the face of the Earth, there. At first, I was just finding it hard to get time to do things, and honestly, it was hard to build up the motivation because my previous group died. Then, life hit in a lot of directions, so I had no time to breathe. Anyway, I'm back...

    D&D 5E Empowered Evocation plus Magic Missile?

    If you respect it, at least characterize it correctly. It's not a unique interaction. It's not an exception. The rule is that EE applies to "one damage roll." The Tweet says that Magic Missile is, in fact, one damage roll . . . multiplied and spread according to the wishes of the caster. Let me...

    That is neither what he said, nor what he published officially. See my response above. This horse is dead. Don't try to animate and transmute it.

    Lmao! I've been playing Amtgard too much. "Experienced," I said. Bahaha! Minotaurs: Eh, okay. "Cunning" is used to refer to all sorts of mental aspects (e.g. Gnome Cunning), whereas intellect and intelligence are perfect synonyms, but it's small potatoes. Great job! As usual, you're pumping...

    Oath of Vengeance fix: Oh, bahaha, that explains it, then! I thought that it sounded an awful lot like what I wrote and wondered how I managed to fail to save that change or something. xD The sheet is using more redundant code now, which does make a difference, but I find that most of the lag...

    The 1oz ink bottle is labeled as costing 1 gp. It costs 10. A day of rations costs 5 sp, not 1.

    Just wanted to say a few things: I am not entirely dead. I have read up and approve of everything gleefully. Excellent job on the Oath of Vengeance fix! This is orgasmically amazing. Keep up the great work.
