    D&D General Should ranger get a companion as its 'signature' feature?

    I think the beast companion is the only truly unique thing Ranger has going for it, and I love the concept... but I also don't think that's enough of a niche to build a class around. Maybe if the class was called the Summoner, and all of their things were dedicated towards that, then you knew to...

    Dragonbane Offers A Box Full Of Classic Fantasy

    Good advice with more solid rules systems (say, Pathfinder2). This one, ennnnh. Not wanting everyone (except the designated face guy) to dump Charisma is not going to up-end the rest of the game.

    Dragonbane Offers A Box Full Of Classic Fantasy

    General leadership could be covered by Charisma, only... you still only need the one face guy in the party with Charisma for that (or for looting). I'm not old-skool enough to want them to solve problems by just throwing hireling bodies at it, anyway. Yeah, I did notice that. Maybe that should...

    Dragonbane Offers A Box Full Of Classic Fantasy

    AGE Having the choice of being old, at first glance, looks completely unreasonable (-2 to Str/Dex/Con, 2 extra skills, +1 Int/Wil). But, with certain very specific breakpoints in stat values there might be something here (Str 15 and Dex 15 are the same as Str 13 and Dex 13 when not rolling...

    WHAT STATS DO Stats set your starting skill values, but also... Str/2 is your inventory slots, Str 13+ is bonus damage, weapons have Str requirements Dex increases your movement speed, Dex 13+ is bonus damage Con is your hitpoints, death saves, poison saves, all kinds of saves Wil is your WP...

    D&D (2024) 2024 Player's Handbook reveal: "New Cleric"

    Hearing that Clerics are popular took me by surprise. Is it just because full caster + armor + shield? Help me understand the Cleric player brain.

    D&D (2024) 2024 Player's Handbook reveal: "New Ranger"

    Zephyr does let you ignore opportunity attacks for its duration (1 minute), no matter when you make its boosted attack. But it would be so much better if it just did that for the turn where it is activated, without Concentration.

    D&D (2024) 2024 Player's Handbook reveal: "New Sorcerer"

    I'm conflicted on Sorcerer Rage, as it's a class-defining mechanic that comes online at lv1, and is not useful to multiclass-dip for as it only affects Sorcerer spells, so it's already ahead of a lot of other early faetures... but it's just so baaasiiiiic. 'here you go, a number if 1 higher, how...

    They are really trying to sell the lv6 partypopper as a bargain for just 2FP.

    Dragonbane Offers A Box Full Of Classic Fantasy

    I was going through my RPGs, looking for a system to run some basic fantasy with, and I think I'm going to go with Dragonbane. You can easily bolt many things onto it from any d100 system, so, that gives me an excuse to check those out as well.

    D&D (2024) 2024 Player's Handbook reveal: "New Ranger"

    This rings true. Tasha works so much better than 2014 Ranger, but that was 4 years ago.

    D&D (2024) 2024 Player's Handbook reveal: "New Ranger"

    Boring. It's Tasha Ranger, which was an alright stopgap, but they treated it as the (totally new!) final destination.

    D&D (2024) 2024 Player's Handbook reveal: "New Sorcerer"

    More annoyingly about the Wild Sorcerer, if you can perfectly control when the wild surges happen, the other players will look at you badly if you choose to have them be possible when in a situation like attending a masquerade party, sneaking, etc. So that moves the risk that was inherent in...

    D&D (2024) 2024 Player's Handbook reveal: "New Sorcerer"

    Playtest Rage says Sorcerer spells only. Would be a bit insane if they changed that, but this is a game all about multiclass dips.

    D&D (2024) 2024 Player's Handbook reveal: "New Sorcerer"

    Speaking of thematic, (playtest) Wild Sorcerer being in total control over when and if their wild magic surges happen feels weird. It's very meta, as a player to be choosing when that manifests, while picking the subclass to play a character who is out of control.

    D&D (2024) 2024 Player's Handbook reveal: "New Sorcerer"

    I haven't seen anything that's as much against 'the class fantasy' as this thing. You just inherently manifest a spell that... requires exactly one bat wing and an eyelash or you cannot actually manifest it. Is that why Sorcerers are no better at skills or hitpoints than Wizards? They end up...

    D&D (2024) 2024 Player's Handbook reveal: "New Monk"

    I think the one really blurring that line is going to be MonkX/Rogue1. You could get Nick from a feat, but you only get one feat per 4 levels. It's more cost-effective to get Nick, extra skill, Expertise, Sneak Attack +1d6 from a 1-level dip, and your concept is good to roll right from lv2...

    D&D (2024) So what's happening with Ranger?

    Not really, because it only evolves at lv13 for the first time... You're happy that your lv1 spell (with free uses!) ate up a lv3 spell?
