    D&D (2024) What's not going to cost discipline points for the Monk to do now?

    Personally I think Patient Defense and Step of the Wind shouldn't require discipline points. They both already require a bonus action, which means the monk is already giving up their bonus action attack. However I think they both are a bit to good to not require a resource cost. They...

    D&D 5E What are the "True Issues" with 5e?

    5e could certainly use more general rules like this. I actual have high hopes for the new DMG. While the current DMG does actually have lots of good info in it, it is frankly, a mess. Rewriting the DMG to actually teach new players how to DM and making it more user friendly, like Crawford has...

    D&D 5E What are the "True Issues" with 5e?

    So you agree that the designers can't service every niche, but insist that they include the niche rules that you want? What makes the niche rules you want more important that the niche rules that other people want?

    D&D 5E What are the "True Issues" with 5e?

    Why not include more subclasses in both books? Everyone loves more subclass options. It's not like there are limited subclass options and they are going to run out. I could easily whip up a hundred new subclasses off the top of my head right now.

    D&D 5E What are the "True Issues" with 5e?

    The same things I said about the PHB also apply to splat books like Xanathar's as well. Why include niche rules that most tables won't use, when you could add more subclasses instead. Niche rules like this are the perfect opportunity for 3PP books. Rules that are only going to appeal to 5% of...

    D&D 5E What are the "True Issues" with 5e?

    I am getting older, and my eyes aren't what they used to be. I would get a lot more out of making the books easier to read than I would the additional rules you want, and I am certainly not alone in this. Why use the extra space for niche rules that most groups will never want or use, when you...

    D&D 5E What are the "True Issues" with 5e?

    It doesn't though. Page count isn't free. Including the rules you want either means adding more pages, and increasing the cost, or not including other rules, that are more popular and will be used by more players. Adding the rules you want, actually makes it worse for me, and lots of other...

    D&D 5E What are the "True Issues" with 5e?

    Because the designers would rather include things that most players would actually use, like more subclasses and spells, rather that niche rules that most tables would never use. Books have limited space, you can't include everything. The simplicity and stream lined rules are one of the major...

    D&D 5E What are the "True Issues" with 5e?

    Not to mention that DMs felt it was necessary to use the rules because they had a player that took the "Expert Shoveler" feat, and not using the rules would completely invalidate the players build choices.

    D&D 5E What are the "True Issues" with 5e?

    100% this. I don't want detailed rules for every possible piece of equipment. Truthfully if D&D had them, I wound probably switch to a different system. I, and the groups I play with are here for heroic action, and over the top Melodrama, not micromanaging mundane details like how much earth...

    D&D Movie/TV D&D Movie Hit or Flop?

    We do know that D&D HAT is doing extremely well in streaming. It is still cracking the top 10 streaming movies, even months after release. We also know the film industry is willing to fight tooth and nail to prevent showing streaming revenue. They are willing to shut down the entire film...

    D&D Movie/TV D&D Movie Hit or Flop?

    Nobody has any real data on streaming revenue, because the industry refuses to share it. We do know that they are makings tons of money off streaming. The best evidence for this is the film industry is willing to completely shut down film and tv production, rather than just share that...

    D&D (2024) GenCon 2023 - D&D Rules Revision panel

    So when 5e is successful it is just because of d&d's presence in popular culture, but when d&d is shown if popular culture before 5e comes out, they don't count, because they were just "novelties". Sure, or just maybe 5e is actually popular, and what the majority of people are actually looking...

    D&D (2024) GenCon 2023 - D&D Rules Revision panel

    There are lots of people who like to give Critical Role credit for the success of 5e, however I think it is even more likely that the success of Critical Role is due to 5e. I believe that if Critical Role had stuck with 3.5/Pathfinder or used 4e, that it would never have become nearly as...

    D&D 5E 5E Lifetime Sales in North American Big Box Stores Revealed

    I would be willing to bet that the actual sales are at least double what is shown here, probably much higher.

    D&D (2024) Playtest 6 Survey is Open

    Yes. If something doesn't receive at least 70% approval they will keep iterating until they find something that does. That is their playtest process. They have been doing it that way for over a decade, and it seem to work really well for them. It was the playtest process they used when first...

    D&D (2024) Playtest 6 Survey is Open

    Why is that what you want is actual improvement, but what the overwhelming majority of players want is just valuing continuity? Just because your prefer something doesn't mean it is actually an improvement for the majority of players. If you want to say that you prefer something, just say...

    D&D (2024) Playtest 6 Survey is Open

    I am sorry, I am having a hard time parsing what you are trying to say here. Edit: I reread your post several times now, and I see what you were trying to say now. A couple of commas would have made your post much more readable.
