    5E Fictional examples of Rangers

    All this discussion of racial changes has made me long for the good old days of Ranger debates. So here we go. While the D&D Ranger has become it's own thing I think many players still enjoy some amount of emulation when rolling up a character. I want to play someone like blank is something I...

    5E Skill knacks (houserule)

    If I were to do this I'd probably come up with a short list of specialties available to each background. For example one Sailor might be unnaturally good at working the rigs and get a specialty in acrobatics another in haggling a fair commission is adept at persuasion etc.

    5E Unearthed Arcana: 16 New Feats

    Rangers were the big winners in the Class Variants UA. For example getting concentrationless Hunter's Mark. I wonder if this UA is springing off that one.

    5E Unearthed Arcana: 16 New Feats

    I just realized with Tandem Tactician I can make a Shouty Barbarian. I'm all for that.

    ALL THINGS BRUCE LEE

    His fight scenes were spectacularly choreographed. It's tough to see them and then watch post Bruce Lee martial Arts movies (IE Van Damme) without being let down by the latter. Besides that he broke a lot of molds. In an era were Asian men in film pretty much acted only one way he and a few...

    5E Unearthed Arcana: 16 New Feats

    I like the THP from food idea. It reminds me of the role nutritionists take in sports. By manipulating carbohydrate intake up to a big game or competition some athletes see a huge performance boost the day of a game or competition from a sudden influx of carbs. Also after strenuous anaerobic...

    5E Unearthed Arcana: 16 New Feats

    The feats are ok. Good even. But I don't like any of them as much as I like Fell Handed from the 2016 UA. That feat had flavor.

    WotC Dungeons & Dragons Fans Seek Removal of Oriental Adventures From Online Marketplace

    I would say it's more of a trope than a stereotype. IE "if you want to play a film-samurai here is a kit". However, if it was bundled with a bunch of other martial arts/pseudo East Asian tropes I could see it verging into stereotype territory because then it could be more easily interpreted as...

    5E Things that "need" errata

    You may want to note the Gloom Stalker didn't exist when this post that you are quoting was written.

    1. Just because China, Korea, a Japan are economic powerhouses shouldn't make it cultural open season on them. Not to mention Vietnamese Americans, Laotian Americans, etc. 2. I think that just because Asian Americans have become a model minority doesn't mean their culture is up for...

    5E How should be the future Oriental Adventures.

    For me it's whizzing. I don't know what that says about my mind though. Chiasmus is one I remember more from religious classes than English classes. And I agree. Simplify it too much and you've got a yokelism. I'm realizing now how many I use day to day but forgot the terms for like antiphrasis.

    5E How should be the future Oriental Adventures.

    I agree. Any rhetorical device when overused loses effect. It's always best to keep mix it up. (If my high school English teacher could see me talking about this now he would be so proud or maybe mildly amused)

    5E How should be the future Oriental Adventures.

    That's kind of the point of anastrophe. It makes you parse the sentence more slowly to give you more time to dwell on the idea being presented.

    5E Which monsters would a lone 20th level character struggle to defeat?

    A chance for a 6 Paladin/14 Monk to show his quality ;)

    5E Barbarian wants to damage himself to keep rage going

    I'd allow self damage for rage. It would take the full damage of an unarmed strike (reduced by half from resistance to bludgeoning). I play a lot of Barbarians and find Thrown or even ranged weapons negate this need however. If after killing my immediate foes I can see there are no enemies I...

    I've been a QA Engineer and then and SDET for over 7 years now and while Black Box testing will always have it's place there is a great deal that a QA can learn from knowing the code base, like where to target regression testing for a specific change. Not too mention it is also useful if you...

    5E Making Sneak Attack allow more weapons

    Like the Class Features UA that open up options for Monk weapons I'd open it up to any weapon the rogue was proficient in with perhaps the added caveat of no melee weapons wielded in 2 hands.
