    5E Tasha's Hideous Laughter vs Otto's Irresistible Dance

    Apparently, Otto isn't as efficient a spellcaster as Tasha? Hideous Laughter: Level 2 1 minute concentration - save every round Target is Prone (advantage when dealing melee, disadvantage to attack). Cannot stand Target is incapacitated (can't take actions or reaction) Presumably, can crawl...

    5E Chase Rules - help checking the maths

    I'm working up some Chase rules and slowly fleshing them out. I'd like some help with DCs and stuff, as well as anything I may have overlooked. And General comments to hammer out kinks. I'm trying to cover many bases. Lots of people have skills and talents and abilities that should help with...

    General Amazing Magic Item: Bag of Useful Halflings

    I'm playing in a game that is designed to be light-hearted and silly. Our DM just gave us a Bag of Useful Halflings. It's the best item I've ever got in D&D ever. It brought me Pure Joy. I found a bag...it had a label on it: Bag of useful halflings I reached in and pulled out a...

    5E How to evict a soul in a ring of mind shielding

    I have a character who has a ring of mind shielding. The Dm has skinned it that the soul trapped in the ring can read my character's thoughts when he wears it. My character is a divination wizard and pride's himself at knowing all the tricks to circumvent protections as well as to protect...

    5E Summoning vs Calling

    I'm playing in a game (we're 10th, I'm playing a wizard) where a demon keeps randomly showing up to try to kill us. We kill her, she goes poof and disappears. My plan was to use Contact Other Plane to find out her True Name**, Then summon her in a Magic Circle and use Planar Binding to force...

    5E Sling Stones as Magic Items

    Just wanting to brain storm: Anyone have interesting ideas/resources for sling stones as magic items other than just +1 ammo? I was thinking of a reusable 'philosopher's Stone' which can change its properties to negate damage reduction. Not sure if it'd be a one-shot item or a 'returning'...

    General How long does a body take to decompose in a bag of holding?

    So, with all the heavy conversations on the board lately, I thought I'd post a fun, uplifting topic. But, yeah, seriously. Our kobold PC artificer has been secretly stashing body parts in his bag of holding to use for his future...creations. I didn't realize this until we were talking out of...

    5E How is Artificer Balanced?

    In our game, we are 4th level. We have a rogue/wizard, barbarian, artificer and cleric. This is what we've noticed about the artificer - specifically the Artillerist turret: Casts burning hands better than the wizard: While the PC does his main action, his turret that has movement can...

    5E 'daily' Powers/leveling breaking immersion?

    I'm having a weird issue playing D&D lately. Our group gets presented with various in-game problems and I, sometimes, say to myself, "I would like to go do 'x' but I don't think we are high enough level, maybe we should do 'Y' instead, first" I think this, even though it makes no sense, in...

    General The Ethics of 'Awakening' an animal

    In a game recently, we found glasses that sets the bearer's Wisdom and Int to 9. (it used to be 10 but we damaged them). The idea popped up that we should give it to my character's mount, a Mastiff named Fu. It was then that a debate broke out about how the dog would feel alienated and alone...

    Cyberpunk 2020 resources

    I was asked by a friend to run a Cyberpunk 2020 game online to raise some money for a charity. I haven't played since the early 90s. I need to make some pregens and run 2, 3-4 hour sessions over a weekend. Are there adventures available? Any resources for roll20? I only have a couple weeks...

    Dresden Files RPG Story Advice

    Hey! Has anyone played any of the Dresden FATE stuff? I tend to use ENworld for D&D stuff and, when I need some advice on Dresden, I usually post this stuff on the Paranet Online Website but it's been pretty quiet there for the last year or so and I'm not sure I'm going to get lots of...

    5E Trained Watch Dog

    A player has a Mastiff and has it trained as a watch dog (not for riding). The write-up says its passive perception is 13 But the write up also says it gets advantage on perception checks: Keen Hearing and Smell: The mastiff has advantage on Wisdom(Perception) checks that rely on hearing or...

    5E Aang the Last Air Bender (character design)

    I have a player that wants to build Aang and I'd like to get some advice/ideas from people to make a balanced and fun PC. Basically, he wants to be able to cast all/most of the elemental spells, be a bit fighty (monk?) and probably some limited healing (water magic). There is also the issue of...

    5E Does Surprise round give you advantage to attacks?

    Maybe beating a dead horse here, but a player was asking and we started looking for direct quotes and I could find nothing. They were curious if some or all attacks in the surprise round were at advantage if the opponent was surprised. My assumption was you got advantage for the round. Then I...

    5E Horde of the Dragon Queen (what am I doing wrong)spoilers

    2 TPKs. I don't get it. Am I playing the enemies too hard/smart? Greenest: they try to rescue the people from the church. They attack the kobolds and cultists. One of the cultists gets hurt to 1hp so I make him retreat to get help. I give the group 10 rounds before reinforcements come...

    Sleep does it go around corners?

    I've asked something similar before. My next adventure, I'm shrinking the party down 1/12 of their size to go in to a gopher hole to rescue a fairy that was kidnapped by germalines. So, the little critters normally have 1 or 2 hps but I'm giving them grimlock stats for the purposes of the...

    Horde of Dragon Queen advice please: (spoilers) 2nd title: All your fault, You Big Fat Goliath!

    So, I started running HoDQ. The cast is: Wood Elf Rogue, hafling druid, Goliath Paladin, Dragonborn Wizard. In the second session, when they were trying to rescue the people from the church, they got TPK'd. They attacked the back of the church but one of the cultists got hit and didn't die...
