    5E Climbing and falling

    Just curious: when an adventure presents a DC to climb a wall, how do you adjudicate failure? Let’s say a PC has ended up at the bottom of a 20-foot deep pit with rough stone/earth walls. The DC to climb out is set at 10. What happens if the PC fails the check? Are they just stuck at the...

    5E Help reskinning an adventure *Acq Inc and ToA spoilers*

    Hi all, As you might know, I'm running a Tomb of Annihilation campaign that I've combined with material from the Acquisitions Inc book. So, for starters, I kicked off the campaign in Waterdeep, where I ran through the initial episode of the "Orrery of the Wanderer" adventure. When we finished...

    5E Advice for playing with a large group

    Hi all, I have a question about playing with large groups. While I personally prefer smaller groups of 3-4 players, one of the games I'm currently running has a total of six players. The reason I agreed to allowing the group to get that big is because we were frequently having trouble getting...

    5E Kate Welch has left WotC

    Over on Twitter, Kate Welch has announced that today was her last day at Wizards of the Coast! That's a bit sad. She seemed to be doing some good work there.

    5E Groot-style PC

    Hi all, We recently finished a D&D campaign, and the DM is going to run a modified version of Descent into Avernus. We're starting at level 3. I've decided to make a character inspired by Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy. Here's what I've come up with: CHULT 'warforged' STR 16 DEX 10 CON...

    5E Heroes' Feast - D&D Cookbook

    @Morrus Nobody else seems to have started a thread about this, so I thought I would. Yesterday, WotC announced an official D&D cookbook, coming out in October. It's called Heroes' Feast. 80 recipes inspired by the magical world of Dungeons & Dragons—perfect for a solo quest or a feast shared...

    5E Using the Acquisitions Inc book

    Hey all, Although I'm not a fan of Acquisitions Incorporated, I bought the official D&D book, and I found it to be a pleasant surprise. I can see why the humorous corporate window dressing might be off-putting to some, but if you look past that, there are some solid rules for bases and...

    5E strong smelling books

    Hi all, My copies of Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus and Explorer's Guide to Wildemount both have a strong chemical odor when I open them. It first I thought it was the ink, but now I'm thinking it might actually be coming from the glue in the bindings. It's so strong that I can't read...

    5E Jungles of Chult hexcrawl setup

    EDIT: See post #31 for the most up-to-date version of my plans. Hi all, I'm close to completing a two-year+ campaign, and my thoughts are turning towards what I'll run next. I ran Tomb of Annihilation a while back, and while I enjoyed it, I found that the urgency of the death curse meant that...

    Westworld Season 3 [spoilers]

    I don't see anyone talking about Westworld Season 3 yet. The first episode came out a couple of days ago. It's been 90-odd days in-world since the massacre at the end of Season 1. Dolores is out in the real world, beginning her plans to wipe out humanity (my guess). She's using her knowledge...

    5E Clash of the Titans' Djinn as playable race?

    Hi guys, I'm preparing to run the Greek-themed Odyssey of the Dragonlords campaign. I told my players that Clash of the Titans was a pretty good representation of theme and the like, and that if something would feel out of place in that movie, it would probably feel out of place in the Odyssey...

    Hi all, I'm gearing up to start a new campaign soon, and one of my players has presented me with a modified version of the soulknife rogue subclass from the recent psionic subclasses UA. He's refluffed the whole thing with a shadow theme, and has made the following changes: *Shadow Blades: Can...

    Hi all, I just finished running a campaign for one of my groups, and the guys have convinced me to run a high-level deep dive into Undermountain (Dungeon of the Mad Mage) as a placeholder till I’m ready to run Odyssey of the Dragonlords for them (which probably won’t be till early next year...

    5E Disintegrations

    Hi all, During the last session of one of my campaigns, the PCs ventured into the Underdark, where they encountered a beholder. They rather foolishly decided to engage it in combat. While they ultimately managed to defeat it, one of their number was sadly disintegrated in the process. I now...

    5E New Magic Item: (Un)lucky Coin

    Hi all, I've had an idea for a cool little magic coin. Currently, both of my campaigns are set in the Forgotten Realms, which has goddesses of both good and bad luck (Tymora and Beshaba respectively). I was thinking it would be cool to have a coin - on one side is an image of Tymora, on the...

    DDAL Running a DDAL season as a home campaign

    Hi all, Like jayoungr, I am considering running a DDAL season as an episodic campaign for one of my home groups. Advice I’ve read elsewhere is that most seasons’ adventures can be run in numerical order by tier in order to make a more or less chronological story. I am leaning towards Season...
