    General Dragonlance's Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman Are Suing WotC for Breach of Contract

    It has literally been decades since I've read the books, but was Goldmoon depicted as unambiguously white? Because I always imagined that she was 'a Native American' with blond hair just like Storm from X-Men is African with white hair.

    5E Jeremy Crawford Discusses Details on Custom Origins

    Not true. Now you can go against the type by playing an elf wizard instead of the optimal mountain dwarf wizard!

    5E Kender a hafling subrace

    I think your option 2 is a sensible way for culture like this to actually exist. I guess I'm in the minority of actually liking the kender. I'm really not a fan of Dragonlance, but I found the kender to be a nice fresh take on the halflings (if somewhat crude and cartoonish one.) So the...

    5E Perform versus Musical Instruct Proficiency

    I removed instrument proficiencies to avoid such an overlap. Performance skill can just cover it all.

    5E Psionics in Tasha

    The thing is most people didn't do it in 2E, as they recognised that psionics system was even more of a convoluted mess than the rest of the game and simply ignored it. If you want psionics to be something that people actually use, instead of some niche thing for a handful of die-hard psionic...

    5E Greater Invis and Stealth checks, how do you rule it?

    Yes. What is not RAW is that location of everyone is automatically known otherwise. And that's all I've been saying. Yes, they could hide, but sometimes they don't need to because them being fucking invisible and the general chaos of battle might make their foes lose the track of them...

    5E Greater Invis and Stealth checks, how do you rule it?

    I am not wrong about what is actually written in the rules. The thing is not defined in the rules with the clarity you claim and we have both heard Crawford say that this is intentional. I have never claimed that rules support my handling of this as only correct one (granted, unlike you, I...

    5E Greater Invis and Stealth checks, how do you rule it?

    Yes, because the discussion has been what is RAW and Crawford's musings do not change that. If we wants to alter what the rules say he has power to issue erratas. And of course like with the rules, you overinterpret the podcast too. The intents is that the rules are vague intentionally and can...

    5E Greater Invis and Stealth checks, how do you rule it?

    Right. So I actually finally listened what Crawford says on that podcast. So he basically says that they intentionally wrote the rules to be open to interpretation, and if you want to run it as tactical game with the position known then that works and if you want to run it as more narratively as...

    5E Greater Invis and Stealth checks, how do you rule it?

    Rules do not say this. But yes, it is reasonable common sense assumption that you will know location of another creature you can see. Yes. And as (like you just agreed,) our baseline detection relies on being of able to see, that has now gone out of the window! There is no difference between...

    5E Greater Invis and Stealth checks, how do you rule it?

    The rules basically say nothing about knowing the locations of creatures in general. The default state that you're imagining simply isn't something that exists in the rules.

    5E Greater Invis and Stealth checks, how do you rule it?

    Right. But certainly if you know that they're nearby you have 'noticed' them, and thus 'noticing' doesn't necessarily mean knowing the location? Yes, that probably would be more straightforward. But I didn't write these rules, I'm just reading them. Though one reasonable difference might be...

    5E Greater Invis and Stealth checks, how do you rule it?

    My stance is that you don't automatically know location of invisible things. This is not the same that they cannot be noticed. They can be noticed (i.e. their presence know) and even their location can be known if they give it away or someone notices them for some other reason. In many...

    5E Greater Invis and Stealth checks, how do you rule it?

    They don't have disadvantage, the rule specifically says that. But yeah, they don't really see invisible, thus I used the quotation marks. But I really don't get how you have so hard time parsing the rule. It may be somewhat poorly written but the intent seems pretty clear. There is a an...

    5E Greater Invis and Stealth checks, how do you rule it?

    Neither of them needs to be wrong. My reading doesn't disregard any rules, merely accepts that the rules do not cover every situation and that the GM uses at least a modicum of common sense. That hiding makes your location unknown, doesn't in any way require that other things couldn't make your...

    5E Greater Invis and Stealth checks, how do you rule it?

    So first you justify an absurd and unintuitive interpretation by a literalist reading of the rules and when I point out a rule that directly contradicts your reading then that rule is just an error? Yeah, that's not gonna fly. Like honestly, I don't really much care what the rules say, I think...

    5E Greater Invis and Stealth checks, how do you rule it?

    My reading doesn't create state, like it or not, the ranger rule proves its existence. As for what it looks like fictionally, hilariously enough it probably doesn't look like anything as it is the state of being unseen. As we well know, being unseen doesn't automatically make you hidden, it...

    5E Psionics in Tasha

    One person's 'original mechanic' is another person's 'pointless gimmick.'

    5E Greater Invis and Stealth checks, how do you rule it?

    This is not a wargame. Everything cannot be boiled down to neatly categorised conditions. This rule however irrefutably proves that invisibly can cause situation where the creatures location is unknown even though they're not hidden. Invisibility doesn't detail how this happens, however, what it...

    5E Greater Invis and Stealth checks, how do you rule it?

    The last sentence unambiguously proves the existence of a state other than hidden where the location is unknow and suggests invisibility as one reason for such a state to exist. I fully admit though that the rules relating to this are a mess, and they should have explained things far more clearly.
