    3E/3.5 Are You Still Playing D&D 3.0?

    And this is why playing 3E wizards as blasters is a bad idea: Playing it as a pure blaster is not where the problem lies. The 3E wizard is the unstoppable force it is because of Control Scrap all of those blaster spells and instead load yourself up with crowd control, and you being a glass...

    3E/3.5 Are You Still Playing D&D 3.0?

    Therein lies the problem though. Because 'breaking 3E' consists of 'y'know, what if, rather than buff someone else, I buff myself?' Or 'what if, rather than be any other class.... I be a wizard and suddenly I can outdo literately everyone in the party?' You complain about build but, frankly...

    General The Hall of Suck: Worst Classes in D&D History (Spoiler Alert: Nothing from 5e)

    I see the Truenamer get mentioned, but I'd like to offer up the 3.5E Ultimate Warrior Samurai as another one as I feel, even though the Truenamer barely functions, the UW Samurai is weaker. The OA samurai was fine, the UW one. Hooly dooly. It was early 3.5E and the understanding wasn't quite...

    5E How would you wish WOTC to do Dark Sun

    Clerics should just have their elemental options, but paladins fit fine, especially with 5E's whole Oath thing. Can't see an Oath of Tyranny paladin basically being a Templar under the Sorcerer King's employ?

    5E WotC's Jeremy Crawford Talks D&D Alignment Changes

    I wouldn't even say its the table though, it was 3E full stop. Yeah, 2E has its alignment things but uh, delve into 3E's stuff. Or Dragonlance. And then there's BoVD and BoED which were.... Well. They sure Were. On the other hand, I'd argue that limits you. What about the paladin who thinks...

    5E WotC's Jeremy Crawford Talks D&D Alignment Changes

    This may be our "What setting we came in ons" talking, but as someone who came in via the 3E route.... No. Alignment was a straightjacket. All assassins gotta be evil, so, y'know, Agent 47 couldn't work in that universe. All paladins gotta be Lawful Good and hoo boy the history of bad DM...

    5E How would you wish WOTC to do Dark Sun

    Honestly I don't even think you need to go that far for warlocks. Just remove the divine and infernal options, the rest are fine enough You can simply go "As a warlock you've made a pact with something. It might be with the Sorcerer Kings themselves. As an Old Ones warlock, you may have dealt...

    5E WotC's Jeremy Crawford Talks D&D Alignment Changes

    how the actual piss did you get 'burn your books and dice' from "alignment is a clunky unrealistic mess and should be removed in order to make more immersive and realistic settings" Like, can you actually walk me through your mental process there? Not everyone agrees, sure, but the number of...

    5E How would you wish WOTC to do Dark Sun

    I mean, hardly? Its blatently "Here's this dark evil world. You're against it and can do some good". People love that. I think you're misunderstanding what the social media complaints are about on a fundamental level.

    5E WotC's Jeremy Crawford Talks D&D Alignment Changes

    Pardon us crushing sacred cows because it turns out applying the tiniest bit of "Realism" or "Application of morality" or "Logical worldbuilding" to them causes them to shatter and collapse like a brick through a plate glass windshield If Alignment was good rules that worked and were worth...

    5E WotC's Jeremy Crawford Talks D&D Alignment Changes

    Yup. Hell, you can easily have a Lawful Good paladin who helps overthrow societies and works on changing their laws because they're corrupt laws that are hurting people. Alignment has always just been clunky. We don't need it, as 4E showed, and hell, Eberron showed it was basically limiting...

    5E Time for Non Forgotten Realms Adventure Paths?

    Original mold's gone and the market won't support it in this day and age. However, they did do a crowdfunding for Jabba's Sail Barge, and another for a ridiculously huge Unicron, so given those both went well... Might have a chance at it if GI Joe ever goes beyond "Dead"

    5E WotC's Jeremy Crawford Talks D&D Alignment Changes

    Magic Mouths are not judges or arbiters of moral behavior. I'd flat-out say it has no way to detect who clarifies as good so its just gonna... Tell everyone who passes Moral absolutism is a stupid idea. Evil people do not consider themselves evil and justify bad things in reasons that can sound...

    5E Rename the Monster Manual

    Man, Aussie pizza's would blow your mind. We love our Hawaiian pizza down here. Heck, pineapple's a regular here. Also? We put it on our burgers as well

    General Two underlying truths: D&D heritage and inclusivity

    Yup, which is an overall interesting thing as to how that version had more of an impact. The actual illustration flat out just gives orcs pig heads. But.... It didn't have the impact over here. The green-skinned tusked orc and, heck, even that lovely 2E orc from DiTerlizzi you posted? That's...

    General Two underlying truths: D&D heritage and inclusivity

    This is unlikely to happen. While Japan's orcs are pigheaded and that's an interesting cultural thing (See also Japan's kobolds generally being dog people), western orcs take much more from Warhammer and Warcraft than they do D&D. Heck, Warhammer's probably why orcs are green to begin with

    5E How would you wish WOTC to do Dark Sun

    Half giants have used Goliath-ish stats longer than they haven't. Its not just 4E that went that way, 3E did the exact same thing

    5E How would you wish WOTC to do Dark Sun

    Heck no. Do a 4E and drag it back in time before NPCs took did your job But yeah, I'd just follow 4E's lead on it. Grab the Draconblood stats to use for the Dray, Half Giants are a psionic Goliath-part one (like they've been ever since 3E), add psionics, dis-incentive magic, stir until ready

    5E Time for Non Forgotten Realms Adventure Paths?

    Cobra-La are just Yuan-Ti when you get down to it But yeah, I reckon FR fatigue has hit in hard. I wouldn't be surprised if something Eberron related comes out given the associated book, and would personally love some Dark Sun or Spelljammer stuff, but couldn't say I'm sure where any would be...
