    5E Soulknife Knack problems (Is it incredibly powerful?)

    So, when you roll stealth, "failure" is determined by the passive perception of creatures who could otherwise see you at that moment. The check also sets a DC. That DC later is used by other creature's rolls. So having a moderately observant person trying to spot you when you start hiding can...

    WotC Gale Force 9 Sues WotC [Updated]

    No, we don't know if it is legal. Its legality is in dispute. That is why there is a lawsuit. It is, as others have said, a matter for the courts. Similarly, copyright has lots of rules about when it is permitted to copy something without paying royalties. Determining if this is the case is...

    WotC Gale Force 9 Sues WotC [Updated]

    Downloading WotC books without paying anyone for them also saves money. Should everyone, and if WotC objects that this is wrong they can prove their case in court? "They can do whatever to need to to save money" and "prove it in court" is basically the same. Regardless of the personal...

    5E Tasha’s cauldron character thread

    Much of 5e can be viewed as a response to 4e. In 4e, the initial classes where uniform in advancement. At level X, you gained feature type Y. The feature you actually got was different based on the class you where in, but the type of feature was the same. 5e actively moved away from this...

    5E How to play a Str Cleric

    You are the 22 in the Catch-22. Reminds me of a good 4e fighter, really.

    WotC Gale Force 9 Sues WotC [Updated]

    The English version was the WotC product. If they approved the GF9 translatiom based on the WotC product, that isn't "approving a translation". Regardless, the similarity of this lawsuit has nothing to do with the previous products. It has to do with the claims made about WotC's planned...

    WotC Gale Force 9 Sues WotC [Updated]

    The previously done translations where approved. GF9 claims it has no or limited obligation to retroactively cure approved translations, and they have satisfied their obligations there. The new translations should be judged on their own merits. If WotC has reason to increase standards, and...

    5E Full feats from Tasha's: are they worth a "full feat slot"?

    Sure, and I observe that people pick fun and flavorful feats. I want the people who I play with to do that. My problem is the gameplay experience that results when one person picks fun and flavorful feats, and another picks strong feats and ASIs, at level 4 and 8 (and fighters at 6). By level...

    5E Bead of Force - 1 bead or 1d4 + 4 beads?

    Adventurers really loaf those.

    5E Bead of Force - 1 bead or 1d4 + 4 beads?

    There is 1 bead on the coffee table. The other 1d4+3 of them require investigation checks! Don't roll a natural 1.

    I personally use Broflake. But it is a bit broader I guess.

    5E Full feats from Tasha's: are they worth a "full feat slot"?

    Except I'm not saying that feats are better, I'm saying they should all compete with primary ASI boosts. At level 5, PAM/XBE isn't better than +2 to your attack stat, but it competes with it. +2 to your attack stat is sometimes better, sometimes worse, than PAM/XBE. I'm saying this is a good...

    5E Full feats from Tasha's: are they worth a "full feat slot"?

    Sure, more power to you. I can disagree, as can you. I'm not holding a giant mute button over your head. I'd hope to convince people that there is a ridiculous amount of "headroom" for strong feats in 5e as demonstrated by PAM/XBE and similar, and given that headroom making other feats that...

    5E Full feats from Tasha's: are they worth a "full feat slot"?

    Archer 16 dex: 2d6+6 at +7 to hit (fighter xbe), 16 ac (50 gp medium armor) Duelist longsword 16 dex: 1d8+5 at +5 to hit and 18 ac (75 gp heavy armor+shield) HAM is also overly strong at level 1; but it decays pretty fast. PAM/XBE doesn't decay as badly. A XBE hand xbow can dash in/out at 45...

    5E Full feats from Tasha's: are they worth a "full feat slot"?

    No, I want feats to complete at level 4 with ASIs. I don't want to wait until level 8 (fighters) to 10 (everyone else) for taking character defining non-numeric boosts to be a non-trap outside of charop situations. I am willing to accept that many games will fall apart before level 8, or...

    5E Full feats from Tasha's: are they worth a "full feat slot"?

    Sure. Here goes. I want flavorful feats that are as good or better than a primary stat ASI, because I like flavorful feats, and I don't want them to be trap options. I don't want them to be trap options, because I have seen what trap options do to gameplay. I play with, and intend to play...

    5E Soulknife Knack problems (Is it incredibly powerful?)

    The DM is never required to tell a player a DC or if they failed a check in 5e. That rule you quote doesn't say what you think it says. Your reading of the rule the way you read it leads to a problem. You choose to conclude "my reading is unquestionable, thus the problem is unavoidable". You...
