    5E Ideas for Failed Skill Challenges

    I often run encounters as an open end skill challenge. A problem will come up like, "what are the orc's planning?" and we make skill checks. Success produce information and sometimes mechanical bonuses, failures produce information but mechanical penalties. For example, I ran a game...

    General What would imps use as a “guard dog”?

    I’ve always thought as Imps as mischievous little buggers. In a game I am running tonight , they have managed to buy a bunch of people and have them caged up. I think the PCs might try to rescue them, but I am at a loss for what would guard them. Any ideas would be welcome. Even if it’snot a...

    What are some examples of monsters that are Glass Cannons (high damage, low ac and/or hp) in 5e? I am thinking of thinks like the Flame Skull (AC 13, HP 40, cast cast fireball and other damage spells).

    "Your Class is Not Your Character": Is this a real problem?

    These threads are fascinating to me. The game is so flexible that you can have people who have such wildly different attitudes on how the game should be played. With that being said, I am currently playing a shaman of the Great Snow Leopard from a barbarian tribe. He’s a barbarian 1/bard 2/...

    General Holiday Adventure Brainstorm

    Have the "dungeon" be a snow globe. When condition X is met , wind and snow pick up. There could also be a giant wall of force keeping them from going outside it.

    5E Balance issue

    Thanks for all the feedback. Whenever you get into action economy, balance gets tricky ;) Since there are arguments for it being to powerful and too weak, I am going to playtest it and hope it comes in the middle!

    5E Balance issue

    The player is a barbarian/bard and a competent power gamer but not looking to break the system. He has a pretty good idea of how to keep things in the area of "just right". It's mostly a flavor thing, he wants his clan of barbarians to have cool super powers and wants to try something new.

    5E Balance issue

    No not all, just some to create more options. It's not a game wide, sweeping changing, it's for one specific PC. I really want to make sure I am not making the PC better than it should be.
