    DMing Princes of the apocalypse

    If they rescue Bruldenthar in the Sacred Stone monastery mine/dungeon, he knows that delegates were taken 'below'. As a dwarf historian he would also know about Tyar Besil. Also there is the Strange Map starting hook but I guess if you're already partway through it's too late for that.

    5E Requiring players to know their character

    My players are slow. One or two know their features very well - one or two don't. Also in any long campaign, sometimes there are subs who will slow things up as others give them advice, they read up on spells, etc. It's a social thing for us tho. We don't really care how long it takes to level...

    5E Tomb of Annihilation campaign recaps

    Great write up. My sessions have slowed to a snail's pace, but should be picking up now - we had one last week, first time since July I think. We're on session 23 A few sessions ago, the group were captured by the Yuan-ti after struggling in Shagambi's shrine (can't wait to see their faces if...

    Gameplay Trailer of 5E-Powered Solasta: Crown of the Magister Video Game

    This has now been funded and some nice stretch goals announced. Check out the updates for character creation - it looks awesome! There is some bemusement as to why this KS is not doing better given the number of 5e fans out there. If you're not backing it, maybe you can give some insight? I...

    5E Enhancing "Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus"

    Something for the errata: If Ravengard left for Elturel 'A tenday ago' (Fall of Elturel section in Chapter 1) then he'd barely have arrived since it appears to be over 200 miles from Baldur's Gate. Certainly refugees couldn't be expected at Baldur's Gate for another tenday. Should be 'A month...

    5E Enhancing "Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus"

    That's also true. I'll tackle that when my players create their characters, I think. Personality traits / bonds will need to drive the character's pursuit of the quest. One of them being a Warlock would also help ;)

    5E Enhancing "Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus"

    To make the whole first chapter less of an obvious railroad of strange coincidence I would probably have the Dark Secret be known by Zodge, and have him blackmail the characters into accepting his mission (no 200gp for them...) Furthermore, the fact he drops them a single lead that 100% pays...

    Gameplay Trailer of 5E-Powered Solasta: Crown of the Magister Video Game

    Myzzrym, this is what I've been saying and some others have too - can you put some resource into getting the viewing angle a little closer to horizontal? Pretty please :)

    XP for Absent Players

    I'm surprised by this statement, which seems quite a violent reaction to the OP, Morrus. I'd see it as more a question of rewarding those who prioritise and commit to attending a gaming session, which the DM may have worked hard to prepare, over for example, staying in because you're a bit...

    5E Feather Fall hanger on

    Something that came up in my campaign over a year ago is still bugging me, maybe people here have some opinions. The situation: Thunderwave blasts a bad guy off the top of a tall tower. The bad guy uses his reaction to cast Feather Fall. As a reaction (after taking a hit reducing him to low...
