    General What would a deity feel when followers pray to it?

    In the D&D realms, what would a deity feel when its followers pray to it? Can it distinguish individual prayers? Does it gain extra power from each prayer (does prayer act as a fuel to its divine powers)? I realize that a lot is not described in the books. Just looking to what you think...

    General New campaign - risks on editing the map while playing?

    Hey all, I am writing up a new world setting for a potential campaign. I love running sandboxes, but I am not sure if this is too open. I have created so far: 1. A map of continents with some continental drift (randomly chosen by me), from which logically follows where the mountain ranges are...

    5E Using Sending to contact a creature who was disguised?

    I have a situation: My players may want to contact a person in the game using the "Sending" spell, but they only have seen this creature in disguise (it used Disguise Self). Would the spell arrive if this person is not disguised at the moment? The spell says: You send a short message of...

    5E How to get an undead army across an ocean?

    Say you're a DM, and say that as a DM you control a lich who also has a bunch of cultists, and both the lich and the cultists all control multiple undead, so that together they have an undead army. And say that they'd like to attack a location a few hunderd miles across an ocean. How would you...

    5E How can players counter Mass Suggestion?

    I have a (homebrew) monster who can cast Mass Suggestion, but I hesitate to use it against my players, because I see very few ways that the players can counter it. I am considering to nerf the monster and to remove the Mass Suggestion. From a roleplay perspective, the Mass Suggestion makes sense...

    Is rewarding the best roleplayers considered Favoritism?

    I'm DMing a very successful (i.e. lots of fun) campaign. We're nearly 20 sessions into the story. There is however something that bothers me, and I would like some opinions. Some players put tremendous effort into roleplaying. One fighter especially has a signature move where he moves to a...

    5E Send a party to get an item/loot, how to keep them to their contract?

    As a DM, I am running into the problem that I don't know how to keep the players to a contract? In two cases, there is an NPC with knowledge of an item/loot, who would prefer the players to get this for him because its dangerous. Party gets big reward, NPC also benefits. Everybody wins, right...

    5E Name of the little islands directly off Candlekeep coast?

    Does anyone know the name of the small islands directly off the coast of Candlekeep (Faerûn)? Note: I do NOT mean the Moonshae Isles, and also NOT the Nelanther Isles... I mean the tiny ones just 10-50 miles off the coast. Links to some available information or maps would be nice too! I am...

    5E Warlock (NPC) question - How to connect to patron?

    I am a DM, and I am writing a campaign where some ultimate-evil BBEG (= Big Bad Evil Guy) is controlling multiple evil beings in Faerûn to cause pain, despair and suffering on a continental scale. The most logical agents of such a BBEG would be warlocks, who get their power from some patron...

    5E Increase a Druid's AC (one player campaign)

    Hey all, tl;dr What is a good way to significantly increase the AC of a Druid, using regular items and game-rules? The longer explanation I'm having a one-player campaign which I play with a friend just for laughs... (And because the 2 other campaigns we play just isn't enough). The player...

    5E DM not roleplaying much

    Hey all, tl;dr, Our DM does not appear to enjoy roleplaying. We (his players) do like to roleplay, but don't achieve anything with it. We (the players of the campaign) would like to have some non-player characters (NPCs) to interact with and to solve some situations in creative ways that may...
