    Tabaxi & the Feywild?

    TL;DR What would tabaxi who've lived in the feywild for generations be like? One of my players is playing a tabaxi ranger with the archaeologist background (ToA - we're not playing ToA, she's just using that background). She is on a quest for the Lost Tabaxi Empire of which she heard tales as...

    Need input on a ship based mini adventure

    My group has a bit of a rotating DM thing going on and I'm due up again soon. My wife tells me that we will likely still be on-board a ship at sea unless we do something incredibly stupid (which is a distinct possibility). It is a group of five 5th level characters. I've been the main DM and...

    5E Making a bigger Giant Scorpion

    A giant scorpion is a large sized beast, meaning you could ride it. That is, it could be ridden assuming the rider does not get stung to death... What if you wanted something larger? Say huge to gigantic, similar to the things in Clash of the Titans remake. I mean, its easy enough to scale...

    5E Handing over the DM reins, now I need a character

    Once we finish the current scenario which will take a session or two, I'm stepping out of the DM chair so someone else can run a one-shot. He gets to exercise his creativity and I get to play. However, now I have to think of a character to play. :erm: Yes, yes - I know - play what would be...

    5E Converting Monsters - which addition is easier to convert from?

    I never played 3e through 4e (that is, including 3.5 and Pathfinder), so I have little experience interpreting with stat blocks from those versions. When/if you need to convert a monster from an older version, which edition do you prefer to use to make a 5e version? That is, assuming you can...

    5E Level 10 Character Ideas

    My DM is going to be unavailable in a few weeks and one of our players stepped up and said she would run a one-shot for those of us that still want to play. Interested players would need to create a level 10 character using any WOTC 5e material (including Unearthed Arcana articles) and Matt...

    5E Help with adventure ideas (level 10+)

    I have a group of players whose characters' I ran through LMoP and then we proceeded with a series of adventures tying in with their back-stories. About mid-way through, my son brought in an air genasi druid, leaving his dwarf barbarian 'in the wings.' Now he has made it clear that his druid...

    5E We Don't Need Magic Shops!... or How My Players Continually Confound Me.

    I'm running HotDQ for my players and in the middle section(s) the party passes through some major cities - even spending 10 days in Baldur's Gate. In an effort to be prepared I made lists of the type of shops that they would be able to find easily and what magic items they might be able to buy...

    5E Creating Monstrosities - which school of magic?

    In the MM it states that while the origins of the owlbear have been long debated, one theory is that a demented wizard created them. If I wanted I wanted to have a foe/NPC who conducted similar experiments, what school of magic should he/she belong to? Transmutation seems to be the obvious...

    Ninja class for 5E

    I have just uploaded Ninja class for 5E to the downloads area. I started this back before the WOTC forum closed and received some valuable input from folks there. I have since revisited it to add some polish and attempted to re-balance it as a class as a whole. A few months back, my son said...

    5E Faction Titles

    After finishing the LMOP starter set, my group set up shop in the village of Phandalin. Many of the characters accepted the offers extended to them to join one of the Factions (Harpers/Lord's Alliance/Order of the Gauntlet/Emerald Enclave - no one seemed keen on the Zhents). They've spent the...

    Useless Magic Items

    Hardly an earth-shaking thread, but it was a lot of fun, with a lot of contributors. If you want to lighten the mood at the table, throw one of these in instead. I wasn't able to install MerricB's tool on my work PC, so I had to copy and paste by hand. The formatting is still wonky. If some...
