    5E Druid that fights in animal form

    Ok, so obviously you want to be a Circle of the Moon druid if you are aiming to fight in animal form. Because that lets you use the higher CR shapes and gives magic attacks. Correct? If I'm reading this correctly, your 3 physical stats are fairly irrelevant since they are replaced when you...

    5E Help with a Barbarian

    Wanting to build a barbarian. This is a bit of a departure for me since I am usually a magic user in any game system. Also fairly new to 5th Ed. GM is going to let me use Goliath race. I'm figuring bear totem path. Kinda figuring on going for mostly the shrug off any attack attack and just...

    5E GM Adjudicating assistance please

    Going to have a few things come up in the near future and curious how you would handle them mechanics wise. 1) There will be attacks by creatures with harpoons (with rope attached) and pincer staff. They will want to be dragging the PC's into the water to drown them. Harpoon could just stab...

    5E Could Use Some Help Fleshing Out A Mission

    Party is 7th level. Pretty good at straight standard combat. They sometimes get into trouble when wierd stuff happens though. They are only fair-middlin at social and investigative stuff. I intend this to be difficult-to-nearly-impossible if they just stupidly charge. With good tactics...

    5E Magic Items for a Warlock

    Our PC's have the opportunity to possibly get some uncommon magic items through a deal. But before making such a momentous decision, I need to check on some things. Can a warlock use both a +1 Rod of the Pact Keeper and a +1 Wand of the War Mage. Gaining a +2 to hit, ignore half cover, and can...

    5E So, it seems I have a cursed item...

    Ok, so my 6th level tiefling warlock put on a "Suit of the Dead" because he thought it was magic leather armor. It fused with my skin and now I look (and smell) like a rotting zombie. Considered Undead - everyone looking at me, including other undead, will think I am an undead zombie...

    5E Questions That Have Come Up in 5thEd

    So yeah, we're still pretty new at 5th Ed and these questions may seem pretty obvious to some of you. 1) A trap says the target is paralyzed (or blinded) on a failed save. It doesn't give a duration. Does that mean it is permanent? Pretty harsh if so. 2) Consumable Items 2a) Anyone can use a...

    Warlock may need some adjustment

    Ok, so the GM lets us adjust the PC's up until they have played at 5th level. I'm getting ready to start playing this guy at 5th level. If I want to make any particular adjustments, I need to decide now. This guy is a pathological liar. Fortunately (or unfortunately depending upon your...

    5E Please help out some new GM's with a few questions

    Ok, so our whole group is fairly new to 5thEd. A couple are new to the DM role (we rotate DM's). And a couple are completely new to PnP RPG's entirely. I understand, "the DM can make it however he wants." However, since we are fairly new and rotating DM's, we decided to stick as close as we can...

    Adding to a Classes Spell List

    I'm still pretty new to 5th Ed, so this may be a stupid/obvious question. I have a player whose PC is a dwarven cleric of the StormLord. One of the PC's in-character goals is to find a way to get more lightning (electric) and/or thunder (sonic) spells into his list of spells allowed by his...

    Could Use Some Advice for My Warlock's Future Career

    Would like some ideas and suggestions for the future career of my warlock. Here is what he currently is at level 3. The GM will allow us to do some retcon of the build. Tiefling, Warlock 3, Pack of the Tome, The Great Old One, Agonizing Blast, Book of Ancient Secrets, Repelling Blast Str 8...

    New 5th Ed GM requesting advice

    So we've got a group of players most of whom are brand new to 5th Ed D&D. They have played other RPG's though. We are playing over Roll20 and rotating GM's. My turn will come up fairly soon. The group will at that time be level 4. Looks like the group is melee druid, melee paladin, wizard...

    PF1E Arcane Shapechanger - Looking for help optimizing a non-optimal concept

    Ok, so one of the groups I play with are not real build savy. I personally like putting a lot of effort into make the PC as good as I can. In order to not dominate the table and hog the spotlight, I make wierd concepts then optimize them as much as I can do get them back up to pretty decent...

    Aristocratic NPC - Fighter?

    Ok, so still pretty new to DM'ing 5th ED. Am making a long term NPC that the party will be interacting with for a fairly long time to come. Wealthy father wants his son to have his 'time in the sun' before settling down to the family business. The PC's will be in charge of keeping him alive and...

    Looking for help and suggestions with a Hexing warlock

    Ok, I gave up on 5thEd Adventure League. Won't go into the why for's and how comes, but I just wasn't satisfied with it. :( For my pickup games I will stick with Pathfinder. However, we now have a group of 4+ people that I know well that want to play 5thEd on Roll20. Huzzah! :D We are going to...

    My First Attempt at a Controlling/Face Warlock for a New Home Campaign

    Afriend of mine is probably starting up a new home campaign in a fewweeks. No I don’t know anything yet about the campaign, so it ispossible that this won’t work. No I don’t know what anyone elseis bringing yet, so this may not work with the group dynamic oroverlap too much with one or more...

    Re-Optimizing my Eldritch Knight

    Ok, been thinking about this some more and considering how our regular group tends to perform.Since i haven't yet played at level 5 (just to level 4 now), I can still change him. I'm having difficulty getting clear answers on filling a ritual book and it sounds like it comes down to table...

    Adventurer's League - Temp Gold During and Adventure

    Ok, we were discussing a few character concepts that seem extremely difficult in the context of AL. Eldritch Knight with the Ritual Caster feat for some utility magic options. Warlock with Pact of the Tome and Book of Ancient Secrets for the entire Ritual spell list. Wizard of any sort. With...

    5E Warlock - What is it actually good at?

    Started reading the about the warlock and immediately loved the concept. Seemed like they would be great at controlling others and the battlefield. But the spells don't match that too well. Maybe a blaster? Once I started getting into the details I'm not so sure what to do with him. A much...

    5E Ritual Caster Spell Lists

    Don't really know if any of you would be interested, but since I was compiling the lists for myself, I thought I'd go ahead and share. These are (I think) all the ritual spells in the Player's Handbook. I don't have any of the other books yet. So if they have more that you'd like to share...
