    5E Conundrum: Ranged attack sequence/cover bonus for players

    Interesting how even after 20 years of playing RPGs, new basic rule questions crop up...: So the PC group gets into a fight with a bunch of bugbears and goblins in a long 10 foot wide tunnel with corners etc, where it's more advantageous for the goblins to shoot their short bows than go melee...

    Duration/Existence of Spell-like/Supernatural Abilities in 5e?

    So last session this happened: A stone statue in dungeon, which looked like a petrified person, was converted back via major restoration. Unfortunately, said person immediately transformed into a major demon, which let go a roar and started attacking the group. We ageed on normal initiative, as...

    Use True Polymorph to re-shape stats of PC?

    Hi - lots of threads on True Polymorph, but none dealing with this specific question: The role and abilities of my PC (Moon Druid) have changed at higher levels, and it's not something I anticipated when creating the Character on level 7. Essentially, at higher levels, I find CON has become...

    3E/3.5 Earth Glide - 5E vs 3.5 - How does your table play it? Esp Moon Druids?

    According to RAW, Earth Glide, especially for Moon Druids with ability to Wild Shape into Elementals, has been significantly nerfed due to the following limitation in 5E (which previously did not exist): "The elemental can burrow through non magical, unworked earth and stone." While the non...

    DMs - How do you treat Healing Word?

    I have observed much discussion about the supposedly overpowered nature of Healing Word, because of its range and bonus action deployment. What I don't understand: in a melee fight with multiple foes, it's super likely that, in the order of play, a foe comes between the healer and the healed...

    A Question for Resurrection Connoisseurs

    So here is a peculiar situation: our Barbarian has died by charging ahead into a fight where the group was hopelessly outgunned. He basically was down after 1 round. (The mage decided to teleport the rest of us out.) As the Barbarian was in the grip of a Salamander, he automatically failed his...

    5E Fog Cloud: Time To Dispersion?

    Hi, I would like to understand how you guys are playing the dispersion of a fog cloud once the caster drops concentration. So as a druid, I cast fog cloud, eg in a room. Room becomes heavily obscured, noone sees anything. Now i'm dropping concentration for the fog cloud as I want to cast...

    5E Conjure Animals NERFED

    thank you for the previous blazing quick answers...here is therefore another question: my DM has nerfed the conjure animals spell for my druid significantly by wanting to determine each time what animals appear and also position them on the battlefield... given that's one of the goto signature...

    5E Number of Goodberries - 10 or 1D10??

    Just starting with a 5e druid on lvl8. quick question please: PHB RAW states in the Goodberry spell description that "UP TO 10 BERRIES APPEAR"... looking through all the forums, noone seems to question the fact that this automatically means 10 berries, or at least it's in the hand of the caster...

    5E Polymorph at higher levels - no beasts left?

    Hi, i have seen all kinds of discussions around polymorph, but not about his question:How do you work with it at higher levels? The spell allows you to change member of your group into a beast (as in the monster group "Beast") with the same challenge rating as the group member has levels (or...

    5E Running away...

    How do you escape/run away in practice in 5e, if surrounded by hostile creatures, or opponents blocking an exit route? Painful situation we just encountered: enemy guards (same medium size as us), were blocking exit corridor as we were trying to flee, and it all ended in tears... ;) RAW...

    5E Short rest benefits during declared long rest?

    Sorry if it has been covered elsewhere, but I really could not find an answer to this: So we lay our heads to rest after a hard days of adventuring. 3 hours into what is supposed to be a long rest we get attacked by some freaking imps. Here is the question: having gone to bed 3 hours before...

    5E Life Cleric vs Light vs War in Practice

    It would be great to hear from players with practical 5E experience on the following: "My issue with Life Clerics is that some of my players feel that if they want to use non-healing spells, they need to play a Life Cleric, which is kind of the opposite of intent. The reason is twofold A) the...

    Monk + Roge/Scout?|| FoB with Sneak Attack?

    Hi all, given you very helpful comments previously, I was wondering if anyone had any experience playing a Monk/Rogue of Monk/Scout combination (emphasis on unarmed strike and martial arts feats/skills such as flying kick and tripping). Which one is more practical? And very importantly...

    Full Attack On Charge / Improving Initiative

    Hi, would greatly appreciate any answers on each of the following questions (it's for a Monk build): 1. Apart from Psionic's Lion Charge (psionics not allowed by the DM), is there any other feat that will enable me to use my full attack (esp. full Flurry of Blows) upon charging? 2. Apart...

    Fighting with reach weapons

    The v3.5 rules explain reach weapon fighting poorly, in my humble opinion... apart from dealing AoO strikes to foes coming into and moving out of my threatened squares, is there a way in v3 or v3.5 d&d to fight with a reach weapon AND keep my opponent at bay, i.e. don't allow him to come into...

    Kama + Improved Trip = Always "Free" Trip Attempt?

    As a monk with improved trip and a kama as weapon, can I use it to trip opponents without them "tripping back" in case I miss, just by dropping the weapon? That would be pretty powerful, as one could always use it to for "free" trip attempts, no? Although not quite as powerful and effective...
