    D&D 5E What Would You Give Up For A Cheaper PHB?

    I'll happily pay $50 for a complete ph. No desire for omission here

    Help Me Find a System

    I love GURPS, but my players have expressed that it just doesn't 'feel' right. I don't know how to translate that into anything useful, haha. Hence why we are trying a few more systems out. Maybe it's the spells... I think 4e GURPS recommends 100 +/- 40 points for new characters as a base, but...

    Help Me Find a System

    I've been trying multiple systems on-and-off for the last year or so. I've happily run a lot of Pathfinder, AD&D 1E, GURPS, and now some Numenera. Each has its strengths and weaknesses, and AD&D will always be my first love, but I'm still looking for something... different. I'm looking for a...

    That's a great Henchman generator you have there! Thank you for giving me permission to use it. And thanks to everyone else who gave advice. I'll post back and let you guys know how the next session goes. I've got some preparations to make. ;)

    DM Needs Help with Temple of Elemental Evil

    Greetings, I am introducing my PF group to AD&D 1E for the first time, and I've decided to run The Temple of Elemental Evil. I've been pouring through the adventure, and I've run into a bit of a problem. Namely, I don't know what to do. The descriptions talk about the residents of Hommelet...

    I have responded to both of these via PMs on this site! Thanks for the offers! :)

    2 players looking for remote group (roll20 or similar).

    Greetings, My friend and I are looking for a group - preferably some flavor of D&D or Pathfinder (edition isn't an issue). We would like something we could play weekly or bi-weekly over the internet, using something like Roll20 or a similar setup. He is 18 and I am 26, both friendly and...

    Pathfinder 1E First World DM Problems...

    Thanks for the feedback. We've got a session this Saturday. Has anyone ever tried "They're moving on without you"? Or time lapses of a sort. That seems tricky.

    Pathfinder 1E First World DM Problems...

    I'm running a Pathfinder game - homebrew setting. Initially, my players had a blast. but we've encountered a problem. One of my players roleplays too much. Reread that. Crazy right? RP is a DM dream, isn't it? But... My players are getting restless. We had a 5-hour extended dialog sequence...

    I really need help with a riddle...

    Our DM threw us a real challenge last session. He says it's not related to the context of the game or game world... "You say you know me inside and out, but I'm not like a radar in that sense. Who I am is the key, what I am is the answer." Anyone care to take a crack at it?

    D&D 1E Core 1e vs. Core 2e: What are the mechanical differences?

    2nd Ed. introduced THAC0, excluding the use of 1E's 'to hit' tables. Non-Weapon Proficiencies were introduced to the core rulebook an optional rule (although I believe some 1E source books had introduced this concept first). Many source books later published for 2E assumed (or required) that...

    1001 minor traits for magic swords

    157) Prism Blade This blade pulses rapidly, changing from one vibrant color to another. Whenever the wielder scores a critical hit with this weapon, the weapon flashes with colorful, blinding light; the victim must succeed on a Will save or suffer under the effects of a Color Spray, as the...

    1001 minor traits for magic swords

    156) Soul-Stealing Once per week, the sword may absorb the soul of a living creature slain by it (if the creature has a soul). If it does so, it gains the alignment of the creature slain. As a full round action, the wielder may make an attack with the sword with a bonus to hit and damage equal...

    Create Water... Too Powerful?

    I'm glad to hear that I was mostly over-reacting. I am leaning towards "leave it as is it", as well - at least until I see how it plays out. There certainly are a lot of other hazards to deal with. Hearing it from everyone else has made me more confident (I really want the survival aspect to...

    Create Water... Too Powerful?

    My adventure is about to be completely derailed by the spell 'Create Water'. I am tracking heat/dehydration and other survival factors... The fact that this spell is at-will is... a wrench in my plans. I'm not sure how to handle this. I'm running the Serpent's Skull adventure path. How have you...

    Help Challenging Tank PCs

    Transbot9- Indeed. : ) Mojo_Rat - Not bad advice. I'm starting to think that it's not going to be a huge deal in the long run, though. I suppose once the party is able to come by 900+ GP on a regular basis, 'Rich Parents' will have become a wasted trait for the player who took it. It doesn't...

    Help Challenging Tank PCs

    Celtavian - That's what I'm worried about. He seems to become wildly powerful as he grows in level. It's a little extra work, but I'll have to figure out some encounters that put him on the spot. SkredlitheOgre - Thanks for the advice. There are some really good ideas in your reply. I'm gonna...
