    How Do You Like Your Death in D&D

    It's a bit of a houserule. DM treated it the opposite of a coup de grace: in this case, though, don't roll a 20. Which is exactly what the barb did. Our table - including the player running the rogue - thought it was hilarious, and memorable.

    How Do You Like Your Death in D&D

    In our current campaign, the rogue was charmed by a succubus' kiss, and was being a royal pain. So the barb said, "I'm going to knock him unconscious". Well, he forgot that the succubus had already reduced the rogue's max hp from 28 to 14, and he had taken additional damage during the encounter...

    D&D 5E 5E Spell Cost

    Thanks for compiling this list - it'll be helpful when I DM. Two questions though - under Spell Scrolls at the bottom, you have gp cost and TP cost. Is that how many gp it costs to transcribe scrolls into a spell book, or the cost to have a spell scroll created? And, what's "TP" stand for? I...

    Homebrew 5e Hardcore: Monster Manual I'm writing a homebrew campaign where elementals will play a significant role (minus all the cultists, thank you PotA! ;)), and your additions will make for interesting encounters for when the PCs get to higher levels. Hope you get time to create more...

    Did you get around to playing J-Dizzle? :) I'm considering allowing Tabaxi in my next HB campaign, and am wondering how it worked for you.

    D&D 5E Princes of the Apocalypse campaign recaps

    That's exactly what happened with the group I DM'd. The group agreed to join but Theroska wanted to test their commitment/mettle, and tasked them with infiltrating the Stone Monastery and return with Hellenrae's head. They did (2 chars stealthed into her room, got surprise. One was a rogue...

    D&D 5E Mystic Powers: An Analysis

    Thanks for the assessment - good analysis. I'm playing a Mystic (Order of the Immortal) right now, and had the first session of Sunless Citadel Saturday. I took Psychic Hammer for Talent, and Bestial Form, Psionic Restoration, and Iron Durability as Disciplines. Used ID for Psychic Focus most...

    D&D 5E What's your most interesting adventure party concept?

    Back in 4E, a guy in my group wanted to have a party of rogues headed by a warlord. Never got around to it.

    D&D 5E do you still roll for damage?

    I roll damage same time I roll attack (unless number of damage dice exceeds what I have on hand). If I miss, no big deal. If I hit, I only need to add the dice and mods. Easy peasy.

    D&D 5E Do you love Awesome Names?

    I like awesome names that show the player put some effort into the naming process. Humor is always appreciated. I currently have a halfling warlock sage named Tommelin "Tomes" Underboot. That being said, some of the names WotC comes up for the NPC's and locations are less than to be desired...

    D&D 5E Combat in low tunnels

    Funny you should ask this - I'm homebrewing an encounter right now, set in a kobold lair out of Volo's. I'm following PHB 192, and including no bonus to AC for shields while in a tunnel. There's a half-orc fighter in the group with two weapon fighting style, and I'll rule he can't do that during...
