    D&D 5E Create a DC 20 Skill check

    Dungeon Master's Guide, page 258: A character can instead attempt to harvest poison from a poisonous creature, such as a snake, wyvern, or carrion crawler. The creature must be incapacitated or dead, and the harvesting requires 1d6 minutes followed by a DC 20 Intelligence (Nature) check...

    D&D General Size matters

    No. 3e had Small +1 AC AND Attack, and large -1 AC AND Attack. It went like this from +8 for diminutive creatures up to -8 for colossal creatures.

    D&D (2024) Maybe this is a bit late, but let's talk about Rogue's Niche, and What Rogue Should Be.

    Not even close. Feats are optional and I've been DMing most of my campaigns without feats since 2014.

    D&D General Boomer/GenX 5e? (+)

    Death at zero HP, keep feats optional just like 2014, enforce full encumbrance, gritty realism and slow natural healing. I do all of these in my campaigns, except for "death at zero", which I wish was an official variant rule in the new DMG.

    D&D (2024) Deborah Ann Woll and Matt Mercer consulted on the 2024 DMG.

    Amazing. It's almost like they are trying really hard to shoo us old grogs away for good.

    D&D (2024) Where should optional rules go and why?

    Really, I don't see the need for feats in my game at all. Can I have that option, please?

    D&D (2024) Where should optional rules go and why?

    I really dislike feats. A great deal of them just serve to take away aspects of the gameplay and reduce the importance of action declaration and decision making. See for example, a fighter who takes both Sharpshooter and Crossbow Expert suddenly doesn't have to worry with positioning on the...

    D&D (2024) Where should optional rules go and why?

    Unless the books specifically spells out only allowing Ability Score Improvement as a valid game mode, players are going to complain and lash out at the DMs for choosing to do so.

    D&D (2024) Where should optional rules go and why?

    What you mean feats should have never been optional? The only make or break for me to decide if I'm going to adhere to the 2024 ruleset is the optionality of feats. I really hope they include the option to play without feats in the new PHB.

    D&D 5E Why is There No Warlord Equivalent in 5E?

    The Warlord was actually first introduced in the Miniatures Handbook for 3.5e. Back then, the class was called "Marshal".

    D&D (2024) D&D Dungeon Master’s Guide (2024)

    What you mean? Magic items were presented in the PHB in the previous edition.

    D&D 5E What, if anything, bothers you about certain casters/spells at your table?

    It is not a problem. Hell, Shield could very well make you fully invincible for a round tha it would still be okay for the cost a lvl 1 spell slot. People should really start accepting the simple fact tha the game is balanced around multiple fights between long rests. Most tables should be...

    At this point, why not just have the original seven from the council?
