    General GM's are you bored of your combat and is it because you made it boring?

    I have spoken to a couple of my GMs lately about why the ended campaigns abruptly or early before end of the story arch. The common thread I got in their answers was basically "it got to be a grind as the party got higher levels." Then I asked, "the players didn't mind, what why was it so boring...

    5E HOMEBREW - My first subclass attempt "Warlock Otherworldy Patron The Rilmani"

    It was suggested that I make this by my GM as a result of a conversation about about spell options and warlock taxes. I love the warlock class design but I feel like it gets in its own way a lot. I made this and he reviewed and like it but since it was his suggestion I feel it was made in a...

    5E Druid Natural Scale Mail Sources CR0-6 for starting characters lvl 1-4

    The idea is these are medium or larger creatures with natural armor minimum AC14 (without the dexterity bonus) that might be obtained by druids as “Scale Male” for the sake of character creation using starting wealth for levels 1-4. It can be higher but I am working on the premise that you could...

    5E Theory Crafting fun: Max AC with Standard Array, without Feats, and without GM provided magic items?

    Just for fun, not saying its a good idea or would fit any campaign. I just enjoy theory crafting. (Done with available options as of 02/07/2020) It should be noted that the highest "To Hit" I can find in an official source is +19 meaning that any AC39 or higher requires a natural 20 to hit...

    General Does anyone know where I can get 1.5 inch squre grid Fantacy battle maps?

    I have been looking around for some 1.5 x 1.5 inch square grid battle maps for 2 reasons. 1. When I play D&D on inch maps they get so crowded you can't see the terrain much when fighting as well as over hang conflict between crowded figures. (partially because I like spearmen for unskilled...

    First Draft: Warlock Syphone (not play tested, likely has issues, curious if anyone has some input)

    Warlock Syphon Instead of getting a patron to grant them magic some have found ways of syphoning magic from creatures or other magic items.
