    5E Doubling down on race

    My pal knows I like to play pretty closely to the books (especially since they implemented most of our house rules from 1e!) but has offered to DM for a small party. he wondered how I would like to try starting with a racial feat for all characters at level 1. I actually was intrigued by the...

    5E Assumptions about character creation

    I have seen a number of people claim that the game ‘assumes’ a certain score in a certain stat. the default assumption is that scores are rolled. just curious. I assume people put a good score in main/attack stat, but where has that been explicitly stated? additionally, I have seen...

    5E The importance of concentration for clerics

    Hello fellow travelers, Gearing up to play again and I think I have my character mostly set. However, wondered about views on concentration and it’s importance. I have rarely put many resources beyond a con score into concentration. I took resilient con once and warcaster in 2014! wondered...

    5E A quirky combo

    So i know this is odd but have read and reread this. can you use greenflame blade or booming blade with the tavern brawler feat? An improvised weapon is a weapon. Gfb and bb require attacks with weapons. it would seem per raw, you can use an improvised weapon with gfb or bb. if you do, per...

    5E Strength Clerics

    So just curious how other have done this...I am old school. I prefer strength over dex. I know, I know. I ignored the memo. That said just wondering how folks configure their array for a strength cleric and also what are some of the benefits you have enjoyed with a physically strong cleric...

    5E Advice about damage types

    I recently discussed my intention to possibly play an arcana melee cleric. I would like some advice. first, yes, I am into melee for my fun. Even if blasting makes “more sense” mathematically to some I don’t enjoy backlining all the time. I like to help hold doorways and hopefully bring...

    5E A case for weapon master

    Weapon master is a feat that often gets bad marks from online pundits. As is my wont, I enjoy justifying less conventional views in character development and feature selection so here I go again. I think that weapon master...is not bad. Perhaps not for the reasons you would expect... first...

    5E Miniature Collecting/Use and D&D

    Hello fellow travelers, just interested to hear about any fellow miniature collectors/users out there and how you use and collect.

    5E Orcish Fury for a Paladin

    Hello Gang, just found an interesting combo. In other threads I mentioned a desire to play a paladin that just keeps going. Gets beaten up, exhausted but fights on! this image or desire for play led me to consider a half orc. I was doing well with a firbolg concept! But I looked at half...

    Which oath is the most tenacious in terms of soaki I note conquest has access to armor of Agathys. of course ancients has the Eldritch ward and resistant to spell damage at 7th? All can cast heroism... I was looking at heavy armor master to help with a character that keeps getting back up...

    5E A persistent fighter

    So I wanted to make a Paladin of low birth who rose to be knighted due to persistence in fights. I am thinking about sacrificing some offense maybe in order to make this. but I digress. I wondered if anyone had experience with The heroism Spell with a character with heavy Armor master. Or...

    5E Building a Paladin

    I was interested to hear how others have developed an Oath of devotion or Conquest Paladin. For background I am looking to acolyte or folk hero for RP reasons. There are motivations to adventure which stem from being oppressed as a person of humble beginnings. but as to combat...I had several...

    5E Oath of conquest (flavor)

    So I was really toying with an oath of conquest design. I have tried to flesh out two characters lately. I like the oath spells and do not mind the tenets per se but wanted some internal conflict. I was thinking about going with Lawful Good and flavoring the aura as essentially having...

    5E Thematic combinations

    Of late I have really enjoyed the idea of single classed characters that invest in their backgrounds with feats. I am interested to hear what others have put together! I have a warlock who is a defrocked cleric of sorts. He has the acolyte background and I am thinking hard about magic...

    5E Drow Characters

    Has anyone played a drow in 5e? I was recently amazed at how many racial spells are available for them. With the racial feat of drow high magic, by level 5 a drow could be very classically drow with six! Useful spells. a drow warlock would be useful and effective potentially in all pillars of...

    5E Fire Attacks

    Just curious if anyone has much experience with fire based characters. I am looking at a tiefling with flames of Phlegethos and firebolt and green flame blade. fire is frequently resisted and at times immunity plays a role (devils, dragons elementals) in particular. thanks for ante red dragon...

    5E Stealth and Illusion

    I was planning on playing a Glasya tiefling Eldritch Knight (I know, odd Combo, but reasons). anyway how would this be ruled? The character creates an illusion. Say a closed door where the door is open and stands behind it. If the character is still and not attempting to move, would a...
