    D&D General Defining "New School" Play (+)

    Yeah, I get this and agree. OSG has things like save-or-die and others which make the game, by default, harder to survive. Magic-Users with d4 hit points, anyone? You also needed a lot more XP to level. Fighter in AD&D would have to kill hundreds of orcs to make 2nd level, in 5E it takes...

    D&D (2024) 2024 D&D character sheet, what do you think?

    Preach, man! Preach! I made this for my new players: they like it. The second side has space for actions, bonus actions, reactions, etc. Pretty much the entire "back side" is for combat stuff.

    D&D (2024) 2024 D&D character sheet, what do you think?

    Oh, my mistake. Yes, I meant yours, but for some reason I thought you kept it to 1 page at higher tiers LOL! Yeah, I just couldn't see how that would happen without it looking a mess, too.

    D&D (2024) 2024 D&D character sheet, what do you think?

    It works for level 1, but what sort of hot mess is it at level 10 or level 20??? (Seriously, not joking...) I remember @DND_Reborn tried something similar with our groups a couple years ago. In tier 1 it is great, tier 2 was ok, but for tier 3 and beyond never worked as well IME.

    D&D 5E Fighter should be called Knight and Monk Should be called Fighter, change my mind

    A topic for a different thread, but there are ways to make Rage easier, certainly.

    D&D 5E Fighter should be called Knight and Monk Should be called Fighter, change my mind

    I understand your position but I can't agree. Simply because they labeled things with the term "knight" just means they weren't using their thesaurus. ;) And you forgot Arcane Archer, not called a "knight" either. Champion is debatable as a "knight" term, but I don't think Battlemaster really...

    D&D General Point Buy Meets Best of 4d6 in Order

    FWIW here's a quick VBA script I just wrote for Excel (which I use for most stuff anyway). It only generates one set since that is all I need for a PC. ;) But, it wouldn't be difficult to create several with a little modification. So, random order, point-buy range, 27 points total.

    D&D General Point Buy Meets Best of 4d6 in Order

    Nice work! Honestly, I'm surprised I never thought of this before LOL! Something along these lines would work fine for me, personally. For one reason, rolling of course can lead to lucky and unlucky rolls, which can discourage players when they feel their PC is unbalanced to the others. Another...

    D&D (2024) 2024 D&D character sheet, what do you think?

    Lots of wasted space to make it "look nice". Boxes are too big and clunky with extra lines and such. Otherwise, there are a lot of organizational issues which WotC continues to embrace in their character shits apparently.

    D&D General Changing Order of Character Creation, from 1e to 2024

    Sure, that is why I specified it was my preference. I don't hold my players to it, but every single one has at least tried it to see what they get and have fun with it. I agree with the concept of -2 for +1 elsewhere. It basically represents your character's choice to not develop one ability...

    D&D General Changing Order of Character Creation, from 1e to 2024

    In AD&D there are only a couple classes where rolling wouldn't give you the ability to play the class you wanted more often than not. B/X emphasized in order, but allowed customization afterwards (to an extent), and had no minimums for classes anyway. Then your experiences were vastly different...

    D&D General Changing Order of Character Creation, from 1e to 2024

    When I started in B/X you rolled IN ORDER, and part of the challenge (and FUN) of the game was creating a character you wanted to play, weighing the balance of taking 2 from one score to bump another by 1, etc., and working with what you had to work with to make something great. Moving on to...

    D&D General Changing Order of Character Creation, from 1e to 2024

    Well, that isn't like real life though, is it? Such things are random, and in many cases there are lots of things you can do to reduce those chances of occuring (such as regular exercise and a proper diet to help against the chances of a heart-attack). The odds are also so incredibly small for...

    D&D General Changing Order of Character Creation, from 1e to 2024

    Or for people who prefer a bit of challenge in what they play instead of "I want what I want when I want it all the time" attitudes... ;) Good for you! That's certainly a way to do it... For things you don't have a choice about IRL, it is. 🤷‍♂️ Should being the word. His quote included...

    D&D General Higher Level = Greater Complexity = Slower Play

    Higher Level has nothing to do with it: Greater Complexity = Slower Play in general. As D&D has given more options, features, and powers to players for their characters, game play has gotten slower over the editions in many ways IMO.

    D&D General Changing Order of Character Creation, from 1e to 2024

    It is the way it should be IMO. Because choice of race isn't random and player's can arrange ability scores to choice (making them "not random" either). IRL, we don't get a choice of who are birth parents were, or what our genetic strengths and weaknesses are. Sure, we can do things to becomes...

    D&D 5E D&D Lied To Me. Gp vs Sp

    Oh, I don't know about that. I won't fault them, simply because they have to focus on what they think most players will benefit from. I recall one of my favorite 2E splat books was the Castle Guide, but 5E just doesn't support domain developments, strongholds, temples, etc. like AD&D did as part...

    D&D 5E D&D Lied To Me. Gp vs Sp

    It'd be nice, but since I haven't heard much in 2024 about it, I doubt we will see anything.
