    5E (Spoilers) Running Tomb of Annihilation up to higher levels

    So after playing through ToA as a player (with our party suffering 25 deaths throughout the course of our campaign) I am prepping to run it myself for another group. However. I like to add modules I DM to my homebrew setting, giving new flavors and explanations for things. And I wanted to add...

    5E Preferred DM vs PC game type.

    Alright, so this was supposed to be a poll, but apparently I'm stupid with computers and didn't notice I posted it while checking the poll thing etc. Anyway. In a recent thread I started, (this one...

    5E Players think Strahd isn't actually so bad. (Spoilers)

    So I've been running Curse of Strahd with my group lately, and the players are not very keen on going up against him. And it's not that they're scared; let me recap. -Players get lost in the mists after running away from a village attacked by a giant pack of wolves and get picked up by Vistani...

    Scaling Nine Lives Stealer

    Wassup my dudes? I've always liked the idea of magic items that scale as the characters do, and one item in particular has always seemed ideal to me for this: The Nine Lives Stealer Now, I really dislike how it plays on the DMG, because it's basically just really useful against low...

    5E (CoS) Getting TPK'd at Old Bonegrinder and more.

    Alright, so my group (lvl 3) reached Old Bonegrinder last session. I had prepared for this, and the hags ripped the group to shreds, but they stabilized the whole group and tied them up, then proceeded to engage in some (very one-sided) negotiation. One of my players (sorcerer) tried to get...

    Tweaking Modules to fit you Homebrew World

    Man, I'm back with a vengeance! In this thread, I tell you a bit more about my campaign world, and how I tweaked Curse of Strahd's (which becomes Curse of Drazhan for me) story and characters to fit in it. Alright, so, Ravenloft, the demiplane of Dread. In the official fluff, the Dark Powers...

    Modifying Old Bonegrinder to be more (and yet less) deadly.

    Alright, I'm back posting! (Though you may not have noticed or rejoiced at the absence of my too long-winded questions). Anyway, let's get to it: how do you tweak written adventures (right now I'm preparing Curse of Strahd, but you can share anything if you like -maybe not ToA, since I'm...

    How strong is forced movement? Also, a barb subclass.

    Sup dudes. I was thinking about your classic barbarian: big, hairy, smelly, stupid, great-axe wielding, and usually a static damage sponge for the squishies out back (yes, he's fast, but he usually moves in short bursts to chase fleeing enemies or reposition quickly once his current enemy is...

    Timelines in your Setting

    Alright, so I'm writing down a rough timeline for my campaign right now and right now: -All the races available to PCs and big bad races (orcs, goblinoids, Yuan-Ti) have been created (the others just pop up in the background at some time, I don't really care) -The elder races (Elves, Dwarves...

    5E Class-Based Milestone Advancement (or a new look on leveling up with XP)

    Gneh, the name kinda sucks, buuuut anyway. I was thinking about how to make a world low-fantasy/low magic without limiting the starting options available to players. So I started digging around a bit on the interwebs and, after barely scratching the surface, I see this one idea, which is...

    Another Ranger Revamp

    Alright, sooo I posted a thread a while back with a link to a rework of the ranger class (Thread: http://www.enworld.org/forum/showthread.php?544154-New-Ranger-Class-Subclasses) (Class' Post...

    How many gods is too many gods?

    Sooo, I've been working on my world, and I've been stuck on the gods for a looong while now. I've plundered and pilfered from past editions and other fantasy settings, and now I have (ranked by divinity level) 8 Overdeities- First beings ever created, absolutely untouchable and incredibly...

    Use of (Narrative) Archetypes in your campaigns

    So, I recently stumbled upon quite a few interesting youtube videos and books that got me thinking. The essence is: all stories follow one of a few general archetypal structures, and you can rehash said structures into an almost infinite variety of individual forms. People, despite this...

    The Narrative Campaign, Utopia or Doable?

    So, first off, I never post here, mostly do stuff in the 5e forum, so you guys aren't my usual crowd (I think...?) Well, you're still fine, just I don't know your names probably. Yeah, shocking. Anyway, I jump from my own pond come to this bigger pond of nerd know-how asking: Is it possible to...

    5E Creating a Challenging monster for a Lvl 20 party

    So, I've been thinking. Most high CR monsters are designed around the idea that they should be played intelligently (which is great, since hitting bags of HPs is boring anyway). I see this especially in dragons and beholders, but that's probably just because they're the only ones I've given any...

    5E On Murderhobos

    Murderhobos, as you should all know, are adventurers who wander about, using their supernatural class powers and magic to take what they want from powerless commoners while ignoring the pitifully weak town guards. How do you guys deal with them? There is obviously the possibility of making...

    5E Changing the Theme of a Campaign

    So, I've recently moved to a new city to attend university and found myself a new D&D group. Since none of the players had played 5e before, and some were completely new to RPGs, I offered myself as DM. Not being a fan of published adventures (but I might reconsider that, since I haven't...

    5E PCs with mental problems and a new Background

    Do you have any experience DMing or playing a PC that had something very wrong going on in their brain (either created that way or as a result of trauma/magic in-game)? Was it a problem/disruptive to your sessions in any way? How much crazy is too much crazy? Would you outright veto a...

    5E Finesse Lance

    I was thinking, would it be game breaking to make a weapon akin to the lance only with the finesse property? My take would be Finesse Lance -Name Pending- Damage: 1d4 (1d6) -Properties: Versatile, Finesse, Reach, Special Special: if you are mounted, you may use the Versatile damage of this...

    5E A Question of Balance (the Inquisitor)

    Not general balance of the game, just this one feature. You see, I have been looking for quite some time for a decent homebrew class I could use for an Inquisitor. I found this http://homebrewery.naturalcrit.com/share/ry-M8IV4g , but I had some problems with it. First off, page editing, but...
