    Adding more rp

    It is the kobold's fault. They were ordered by a nation run by green dragons (which the kobolds faithfully follow) to disrupt some of the villages to the land would be easier to invade.

    Adding more rp

    I recently finished a short campaign and I had one of the players comment that the session is just a series of fights. I thought about the comment and I wanted to know how to fix that. The problem is it was an adventure to stop some kobolds from harassing a village. Other than talking to the...

    D&D 5E Running a zombie seige

    One thing, to mix things up I was thinking of having some Nutured ones of Yurtus (from the volo's) guide to be mixed in with the zombies and reskinned as undead. That should speed things up a bit.

    D&D 5E Running a zombie seige

    Last session the party took refuge in a walled city and was asked to help defend the city against an oncoming wave of zombies. I was wondering how to run the next session with the oncoming zombie horde.

    D&D 5E Can a fireball melt ice?

    It should melt as much ice as spending a third level spell slot to melt ice, given there is not a given melt ice spell in most wizard's spell books. If the spell is trying to melt a frost giants special stuff, especially while he is wearing it, no dice. If you attack four orcs standing on ice...

    D&D 5E Fighting a young dragon

    If I am going to throw tuckers kobolds at the party pretty much means that I have to have the party fight the dragon on it's turf. I was thinking the party would have to deal with a group of kobold bandits that would plague the supply lines of an advancing army and the players are sent to deal...

    D&D 5E Fighting a young dragon

    In my campaign the main antagonists are a country run by chromatic dragons (mostly greens) and in a couple of weeks the party will be free of it's current enemy and I was thinking of throwing a young dragon at them (probably green but maybe black) the party will be 5th level at that time so I...

    D&D 5E Gnomes aren't Fey?

    I have a bit of a question on what the point of gnomes are myself. Ever since 3e you could make a halfling illusionist and then what is the question what you really do with gnomes.

    D&D 5E How do you play D&D?

    I have a random group of people I play on roll 20 with.

    D&D 5E DM Confessions: What monsters do you overuse?

    I find that I like to use goblins a lot but also I have a penchant for throwing wererats at the pcs for some reason. I also seem to like skeletons and zombies as they can be part of a quickly manufactured army.

    D&D 5E Questions on how to run a Lycanthropy city adventure

    I have been running my campaign for a few sessions and the players have decided to go into a city that unbeknownst to them has a wererat problem. The players are 3rd level and I have been generous enough to give them two +1 weapons. Any tipis on running this adventure, especially since I am kind...

    D&D 5E Running an escape adventure

    I am starting a new campaign in about a week. For the first couple of adventures I plan on having the players escape from an invading army, one that is run by green dragons. How should I do this?

    D&D 5E What's the problem with certain types of creatures being immune to Sneak Attack?

    Isn't wand and scroll use usually not a rogue ability? They sound like wizard stuff to me.

    Pathfinder 1E We destroyed the moon.

    Then you swear at the DM when he says his werebeasts know how to create a fake moon so they still transform into their werebeast form.

    D&D 5E L&L December 16th Can you feel it?

    Things that are traditionally immune to backstab tend to make for poor roleplaying encounters.

    D&D 5E L&L December 16th Can you feel it?

    The problem is that if you don't remove backstab immunity for undead an undead themed adventure can easily become boring and frustrating for a rogue's player. Things like flavor or immersion are utterly pointless and even worse destructive to the game as a whole when they make the game boring or...

    D&D 5E I'd like to see Next do away with racial stat mods for PC races.

    The only way to accomplish this without saddling players with crappy characters is to figure out a way to make more than one stat important for a class. When your classes forte is tied to a single stat that is what any player with mechanics sense or at least not beholden to stormwind falacy will...

    D&D 5E L&L December 1st design finese. Part 2

    This article only continues to reinforce my belief that Mearls is only trying to oversimply the game. That and also the game will be horridly unbalanced given the predilection of removing the previous edition locks on being a spellcaster and yet somehow thing that won't overpower a fighter much...
