    5E A truly horrifying Age of Worms

    Having played AoW in 3.5, clerics or paladins with the right prestige class could definitely make things easier for the party. Plus, cheap wands and scrolls... But the campaign was still a meat-grinder. Characters seem more durable in 5E, but with fewer spell slots and magic items, I don't...

    Upcoming Age of Sigmar: Soulbound Releases

    I think the one thing keeping me from getting this game is knowing how distracted I will be with all the terrible alternative spellings of common words like "endrineering" and "aelves". That's on GW, not C7, but still...

    I Might Have to Run a Bad RPG System Next Week!

    Which version of WFRP would you be running (there are 4)? 1E (which TEW was originally written for) is a bit clunky but works. 2E takes 1E and systemizes it a bit. Works a bit better, but I think loses some of the original charm. You can run 1E adventures with 2E with virtually no changes...

    General Starter set campaigns from older editions?

    Under Illifarn was a great 1E starter for the Forgotten Realms.

    General The 10' hallway default. How? Why?

    Counting in 10s is easier...

    General Nominate your favourite D&D villain!

    Bargle the Infamous. Probably hated by more young players than any of the rest.

    General "Casanova" scenarios?

    Volo, as featured in the recent Waterdeep adventure could fit the bill. Well connected, irresponsible with money, always looking for the topic of his next book, and a magnet for trouble.

    5E Does the Beholder's anti-magic field move with it?

    The PCs will likely be battling a beholder this week, and I want to understand how its anti-magic cone works. The MM states that "at the start of each of its turns, the beholder decides which way the cone faces and whether the cone is active. The area works against the beholder's own eye rays"...

    5E [FR] Bloodgate Keep

    I'm putting together a sandbox FR campaign loosely based around SKT, but am drawing upon some of the other DnD Next/5E material as well. In the Ghosts of Dragonspear Castle and Scourage of the Sword Coasts, a group of Red Wizards is plotting out of a hidden base called Bloodgate Keep...

    5E Does Dispel Magic work on Banishment?

    We had a scenario come up yesterday and the group didn't really come to an agreement on the answer, nor could we find an answer online. The PC wizard cast Banishment on a demon and successfully banished it to the Abyss. Then, knowing that 10 rounds of concentration were required to make it...

    Unofficial 5E Conversion

    While I would love an official 5E conversion, I'm not willing to wait for WOTC. So I've started to make my own, and have begun working on some (very lazy) Character Creation notes. Races: Eladrin are covered in the DMG so there's nothing to add there. For Devas, I'm just using the aasimar...

    This is probably a dumb question...

    While I still wait for my PF Zeitgeist Bk One to arrive in the mail, I've been reading the PDF compilation, and I notice that Bk 1 goes up to level 12, and Bk 3 will go up to level 30. These look like 4E levels to me - does the PF version really go up to level 30, and if so, how is this done -...

    5E Pedantic Equipment Complaints

    I just got my PHB, and I'm digging it. So far, EVERYTHING IS AWESOME, EVERYTHING IS COOL IN 5E... ...except the Equipment chapter. For some reason, I find myself quibbling over really petty details: *why does the hooded lantern have 2x the illumination radius of the non-hooded lamp? *do...

    4E FR 4E SPOILER - Grand Histoy of the Realms info

    To me the whole things very Wagnerian - maybe we can look forward to a FR opera! Anything that makes the deities less of "your ex-adventuring buddies who hit max level" to grander, more remote beings gets my approval.

    Calculating XP for a 21st level character

    As we approach the end of our Age of Worms capaign, some of the players are hitting 21st level. I understand the rules for calculating XP for monsters with a CR of 21+, but I can't figure out the formula when PCs are level 21+. The table in the DMG only goes to 20. For instance, if 4 21st level...

    Death Attack

    Is there any official WOTC feat that allows assasins to make death attacks at range?

    Knight/Paladin characters

    On the surface, the two classes go together very well - they benefit from the same stats, complement each other's saving throws, fight with the same weapons, and don't give up any BAB. And both get to be snooty towards the party rogue :) So, barring the silly no-multiclassing paladin rules...

    Crazy Multiclassing Idea

    Here's an idea that came to me today at work for multiclassing: You use the XP chart separetly for each class. So buying the 1st level of fighter costs 1000 XP, regardless of how many levels of wizard you have. However, the catch is that levels don't stack - instead you take the better # of the...

    Sell Me Grimm Tales

    Ok, all this talk about Grimm Tales has intrigued me. And I'm looking for a new low-fantasy setting that's D20, but grittier than standard DnD. So, the game looks like a good fit. However, I understand that it's based on the D20 modern rules which I like, but already own. So what does GT do...
