    UA Revived, Noble Genie and Archivist Revisited in UA

    Especially psychic and force are problematic. They bypass just too much.

    5E Thief Archetype Fast Hand uses

    Hi, fast hands is an underrated ability: drawing a healing potion drawing a second weapon (even if you can´t immediately use it as an offhand weapon, you can still maintane a rate of fire with a a dagger of 3 per two turns, and as a multiclass with extra attack you can throw 2 weapons per...

    UA Revived, Noble Genie and Archivist Revisited in UA

    I am totally ok throwing an ice ball once in a while. I like that feature. I don't want it on a regular basis. Maybe an softer restriction would be in order. Once you used a spell to substitute, you can't use it again until you finosh a short rest. So it is not getting boring.

    UA Revived, Noble Genie and Archivist Revisited in UA

    I like the concepts. I think the damage substitues need some limits. Probably proficiency bonus per long rest or so. While I like the feature I would not like Force balls all over the place. It is nice as something you can pull out if needed desperately. Yoou could also associate a cost to it...

    5E Solving Static Fights

    Having played 4e and liked it I also come to like more static fights a lot. Tracking little moves is too time consuming for my tastes and requires a battlemap. Whenever we move to battlemap however, fights become dynamic. Cover, concealment, thereats of AoEs, light sources, summons, trying to...

    5E Sorcerer Changes

    Sorcerers already have a great concentration save. You can already focus concentration over charisma depending on your choice of spells. I think not having obvious choices makes the game more interesting.

    5E D&D Mythic Odysseys of Theros Previews!

    I like to see supernatural gifts. What I find interesting is, that in a recent thread someone asked which new thing Theros might bring to the table... and then examples from other books were listed... ... and I think some of those things (factions/downtime activities) are slight variations of...

    5E Half (High) Elf Swashbuckler

    I have an even better Idea: start at level 1 and look how everything is playing out. You will notice very soon, how often you find yourself wishing that you had a shield in the offhand, or some extra armor or extra hp. Maybe you find yourself in the situation, that you want to expand your magic...

    5E What do you want in a Dark Sun book (sans psionics)?

    Dark Sun needs a lot of rule variations. I think, going as bigh as 24 with ability scored might work. Higher would be problematic. This boosts characters which don't wear armor (which in Dark Sun is questionable). Speaking of this, I remember armor in Dark Sun coming in pieces. A simole rule...

    WotC Ray Winninger Is Head of D&D RPG Team; Mike Mearls No Longer Works on RPG

    I never excused Mike Mearls. I can´t, because I don´t know what he did. I really did not see any proof. I am also not sure about what Zak S did. Probably bad things. But harassing people is not OK. It is for the court to decide who did what, not the internet people. Here in germany a respected...

    WotC Ray Winninger Is Head of D&D RPG Team; Mike Mearls No Longer Works on RPG

    And still, "an eye for an eye" is not how things should work. And if I understand right, such a campaign was already in place against Zak and such a campaign is not helping victims as you are also an offender. What I see is a lynch mob, and that might be what Mike Mearls was seeing back then and...

    5E Eldritch Smite, Why?

    Actually, Jeremy Crawford brougt it up and it it not clear at all. The multiclass ruleabout mixing pact magic and normal spellcasting only speaks about when you cast a spell you can mix and match as desired, it leaves out fueling class abilities with spell slots. And since it shuts down a lot of...

    WotC Ray Winninger Is Head of D&D RPG Team; Mike Mearls No Longer Works on RPG

    To be fair, that was a general theme of 4e in its beginnings and only stopped at essentials, when it was just too late. If 4e had been like essentials, It wouldn´t have seperated the community that hard. Not that I can prove it, but it got way better then. Still, even at that point, even when...

    Crazy builds for one insane stat

    Also Bard, jack of all trades or champion fighter. I think all abilities are low enough to fit at least the bard in. You should also be able to get advantage on the check by some means.

    5E Fireball tweak idea

    Maybe a simple: If the fireball deals at least 35 damage, the radius increases by 10 ft where it deals half damage. If the fireball deals less than 20 damage, the radius is decreased by 10 ft.

    UA Unearthed Arcana Revisits Psionics

    Looks nice, simple and somehow consistent. I would like the sorcerer to use int as a casting stat instead of charisma for that subclass. I would also like a psionic fighting style for the fighter.

    5E Ability Score Balance: through the eyes of fresh players

    Str as a viable dump o stat is not a thing in our games. Also Int is very questionable as a dumo stat. Would I have liked that Int may have given some extra tool proficiencies or languages? Yes, probably. With xanathar's guide you at least have an easier time to learn new ones. I think this...

    5E Ability Score Balance: through the eyes of fresh players

    Always remember: you need a 10 in a score to auto succeed on DC 5 checks. So with Int 8 you might not have an answer to something that shoukd be common lore. With 8 Cha you might not know how to behave appropriately when everyone else does.

    5E New Errata Released For D&D PHB, OotA, Xanathar, and ToF

    I don´t really understand if you think the change is good or bad. If our common sense already knows how to read the line, why not change it to match to how most people already read it.
