    5E So what is the state of gishes after Xanathar's?

    It seems like College of Swords is a viable edition to the "gish in a box" options for d&d 5e. Hexblade looks like its going to be a very common dip for bards, sorcerers and paladins. Divine soul mixed very well with paladin/sorcerer. For Int-based, EK and AT might want to take a couple of...

    Thought experiment: feats AND ability boosts

    Out of curiosity how do you think this would work: At 4th, 8th, 12th, 16th and 19th level, all classes get an ability score boost as normal (+1/+1 or +2 up to maximum of 20) AND they also get a feat. At 6th and 14th levels fighters get a bonus feat but no ability score boost at 10th rogues get...

    5E Should 5e use Star Wars Saga edition-style talents and powers?

    I'm wondering if we might see something like the Saga edition talent and power system in 5e: each class gets access to a variety of talents as it levels up. Some are exclusive to the class and some are available to anyone with certain prerequisites (in this case, maybe races, power sources...

    Just a a thought experiment. The great conflict of the core cosmology in 4e is between the chaotic primordials and the great proponents of order, the gods. The primordials are beings of chaos, continually creating and destroying at a whim. They are not necessarily evil but they are capricious...

    Looking for flavor/background for Vestige Pact Warlock

    I've been meaning to play a Vestige-pact warlock ever since it came out in Arcane Power. I loved the binder class in 3.5e and I still love this idea. The problem is, that I always blank on a good character background. How does one come to make pacts with the spiritual remnants of gods...
