    5E WotC Shares Theros Table of Contents

    "I like how the snapping bones adds some extra crunch to this book!"

    General Let's Talk About Eberron

    I'm intrigued by the politics of Eberron bundle! Thanks for the link.

    5E WotC Shares Theros Table of Contents

    My bad, you're right. Let's get back to evaluating the latest soul-crushing, mass-produced monstrosity.

    5E WotC Shares Theros Table of Contents

    My Ravnica game is every bit as much D&D as my Forgotten Realms game.

    5E What setting would you like for an adventure?

    I voted Al-Qadim. Rationale: We know 5e loves to publish books that squish a couple different things together, but one thing we haven't had is a primary adventure that also has some setting and crunch included. So put out a 128 page adventure for Al-Qadim, and add in 40-50 pages of setting...

    5E Musings on the likelihood of future products

    I don't think new rules that sit on top of old rules is impossible if they're offered as an addendum, not as a replacement. Like if they put out a new fighter in a hypothetical "50th Anniversary PHB", with 3 new subclasses instead of Champion, Battle Master and Eldritch Knight, and with 5...

    General Alignment in D&D

    My car is 15 years old and I still listen to CDs. This isn't a metaphor; I just enjoy oversharing.

    PF2E Pathfinder 2e: Actual Play Experience

    I think there are 2 things that are true in relation to this statement. 1) The market as a whole is moving steadily away from "character building as a method of demonstrating/utliizing system mastery" and towards "character building as expression of style and aesthetic." 2) The Pathfinder...

    General Let's Talk About Eberron

    Most of what I've read about Morgrave's Miscellany has been a net negative, so I didn't pick it up. I would prefer to wait for Exploring Eberron, which should be out in just a few weeks.

    5E Homebrew modification of Sharpshooter: reasonably within line?

    To be fair, a smart powergamer isn't going to use it "when they're certain they'll hit", they'll use it when the estimated hit rate times damage is greater for the -5/+10 case then the normal case, AND when the enemy looks to have enough hit points left that the +10 damage won't be an overflow...

    5E Balance at high levels - and a possible house rule

    Exactly. You decide based on what you want to happen mechanically and what tropes you want in your game; coming up with a setting justification is easy.

    5E Balance at high levels - and a possible house rule

    In 5e (per Xanathar's, I'm not telling you what happens in your game), you don't need to be a 20th level wizard to make a magic item. You don't even need to be a spellcaster.

    General Alignment in D&D

    Seems silly to choose to drive a 20 year old car and then complain it doesn't have Bluetooth.

    5E Balance at high levels - and a possible house rule

    I mean, I don't want to poo-poo your idea. Modifying rules for magic items is certainly an underappreciated method of affecting game balance in 5E, primarily because no formal methods of evaluating their prevalence exists. But I imagine they're pretty common in a large swath of people's games...

    5E Balance at high levels - and a possible house rule

    I'll be honest, I've played a fair amount of Tier 3 at this point (not Tier 4, where I do think some 9th level spells have balance issues), and casters are good, but they aren't really all that. Casters have a drastically limited pool of high level spells to cast, and concentration is still...

    5E Musings on the likelihood of future products

    If nothing else, The Good Place showed that philosophy can be made interesting to a broader pop culture audience.

    5E Homebrew modification of Sharpshooter: reasonably within line?

    Almost certainly less, removing the -5/+10 portion of Sharpshooter is a nerf in most common situations.

    EN World Two potential site upgrades

    The bigger negative to the blocking was that it broke links to old posts, which made it so you couldn't even follow notifications when you've been quoted if one person in the thread had blocked you, even if they weren't involved at all in the quotes. There's also usually been a pretty informal...

    5E Musings on the likelihood of future products

    I'm just spitballing, but I think doubling down on CR's popularity makes a lot of sense. Maybe WotC is working with Matt Mercer on a new continent for Exandria that can be released concurrently with the next season of Critical Role?

    5E Musings on the likelihood of future products

    Man, just the thought of a Final Fantasy themed D&D sourcebook (with a Job system!) gets my '90s kid heart thumping.
