    UA Why UA Psionics are never going to work in 5e.

    To start off with, I will remind everyone about Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition Unearthed Arcana: It's a series of articles that provide the internet at large playtest material for 5e. After a publishing a PDF and waiting for a irregular period of time, the 5e Game Devs at Wizards of the Coast...

    Cats: A review by someone who knew nothing before seeing it.

    Warning: I'm spoiling the heck out of this movie. Disclaimer: I'm not big into musicals. I find it harder than it should be to figure out what people are saying when they are singing. Possibly due to slight hearing loss. There are a number of people online who say that the movie has no...

    5E Which UA subclasses do you think will make it this time?

    The approval rate needed for UA material to become official is 70% or so. Meaning 70% of the playertester base has to like it before it can potentially see a book. Otherwise the idea is scrapped, though individual abilities or parts of ideas that test well might be cannibalized for future UAs...

    5E The Consolidated List of Psionic UA Subclass Options.

    Because of the most recent UA, people are worried about the Mystic/Psion being dropped in favor of it becoming a Wizard Subclass. Any truth to this would be a half truth. Yes there would be a Wizard subclass, but there are also a bunch of other subclasses that would also be psionic too, and I...

    5E UA interviews: The possible future for Pet Subclasses in 5e.

    Listening to the D&D Beyond interviews for the new UA, it seems like WotC has heard the feedback about pet classes. Talking about the Wildfire pet as it compares to other subclasses begins at the 4:03 mark. For those that are curious about the other subclass interviews, here you go...

    5E D&D Beyond: Updated Character Popularity

    In the latest D&D Beyond broadcast, they updated the lists for the most popular character classes and races on the platform. Out of 8.8 Million characters(!), and apparently "'Paid VS non-Paid' doesn't alter this dramatically, at all."

    5E Strike True: A breakdown of Monster Defenses.

    So after finally taking the plunge to buy D&D beyond, I decided to justify my purchase by using it to catalog all of the monster saving throws and AC I had access too, in order to see exactly what defenses are the best ones to target in general. Hopefully, you will find this useful. To begin...

    Warlording: The Subclass Edition. Because there wasn't enough of these floating around.

    Lo and Behold! I have descended from the mountaintop of bingeing entirely too much coffee and Warlord threads from previous editions to deliver unto you yet another supercilious Warlord thread that will likely soon be obsoleted by official materials. As you know, Mearls has recently made a...

    5E UA: Order Domain Cleric.

    This month's Unearthed Arcana, from WotC's Jeremy Crawford and Mike Mearls, presents a new cleric domain for playtesting: the Order Domain. "The Order domain represents discipline, as well as service to a society or an institution, whether that service is rendered in obedience to or enforcement...

    For those of you who do not know: Mike Mearls hosts a stream where he designs subclasses, this week he took a stab at the highly demanded (Fighter)Warlord. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/235935943 Edit: Oh wait, I should mention this is unofficial and not even UA playtest material, before...

    5E Relative popularity of the Xanathar's Subclasses

    Yet more D&D Beyond datamining! This time it's about the XGtE subclasses. Of note: This data was "normalized" by only including characters who were created and then updated, which would presumibly indicate a continued intrest in the character instead of just goofing around to see what is...

    5E Which Subclasses are the most simple?

    So now that XGtE has been out for a while, and every class has gotten new subclasses: What, in your opinion, is the "simplest" subclass of each class to play? For the sake of clarity, consider "simplest" to mean the easiest to learn and remember how to use. Not necessarily the platonic ideal of...

    5E Monster Saving Throws: Challenging Conventional Wisdom.

    The D&D Beyond Monster List is a fun little thing. It doesn't have quite all the options I would like at the current moment, but it does let you search every printed D&D monster even if you don't "own" them for the app. Using the tool to search for monster/NPC proficiencies, I found out the...

    5E Xanathar's Guide to Everything. Broadcast roundup.

    5E More Data Mined from D&D Beyond: Most Popular Spells

    Top 10 Spells and Cantrips Known/Prepared by Class: Keep mind, due to the nature of having low level characters, level one spells are naturally the most common. Also this data discards any "always prepared spells" such as the Life Cleric's Cure Wounds, or Gnome's Minor Illusion Edit: This list...
