    5E Is "perception" even a good concept?

    How interesting of a character development choice is it really? I didn't mind so much back when it was split into several skills, but 5e Perception is really just an obvious pick for everyone in my experience. Does this bother anyone else?

    5E D&D Class Design Criticism

    This is something that's kind of bothered me since the 3e days, but it seems to get worse with each edition. Basically, classes really only start to feel "complete" in the later levels. Just think of all the character concepts that don't really come online until level 8 or 11 or something...

    5E Can you shove or grapple a creature that you're riding?

    As far as I can tell you can, but I'm curious if the following examples hold true (or if I'm completely wrong in the first place). (a). You're riding a horse out of combat and decide to "shove" it into the ground. Since the horse probably wasn't expecting you to be a source of danger, I'm...

    5E Softback Books?

    With official PDF's seemingly never happening, has there been any word on softback printings like they did with some 4e stuff? It was getting really annoying lugging around a PHB, DMG, MM, and AP, plus notebook and tablet. Anyway, my short term solution was to take my PHB and MM -- both of...

    Bug with notifications

    Every once in a while, I'll get a notification alerting me to receiving XP or being quoted or something. Normally, I can click the link and it takes me to the post in question, however sometimes it takes me to a different post entirely. For example, I have a notification with a link to this...

    5E Survey Results - Tier 1-4 experience

    Last month I ran a survey asking 5 questions, 4 of which were related to the "tiers of play" mentioned in 5th edition. Logged in and there haven't been many more responses recently, so thought I'd share them with you guys in case anyone was curious.

    After a few years of 5th Edition, I'm pretty much ready to give up on inspiration. I've tried limited or expanding the number given, and the circumstances under which players earn them. The problem I'm having is inspiration rarely seems to make the action more interesting. Nine times out of...

    5E Has anyone fought and killed a Tarrasque?

    5th edition, specifically, but I'm also curious about how encounters went in other editions. Bonus question: how do you pronounce it? I've always said "tah-ras-kee."

    Musical Inspiration

    When I'm writing modules, building a world, or just prepping for a session, I rely pretty heavily on music for sources of inspiration. Maybe it's the lyrics, or a particular sound, or even just the fact that music is so powerful for establishing memories. Regardless, it's part of what makes...

    *very* slow site

    Why in the world is this site so slow? Are there plans to move to a better host, or is the own just not really experienced or what? This is easily the slowest forum experience I've had in a very long time.

    5E Does anyone actually track rations?

    I love campaigns where exploration is important. Expedition kind of stuff where the players have a chance prepare for the adventure, pack supplies, choose which spellbook to bring, etc.. Onet hing I've noticed, at least with my group, is how so much is trivialized with racials, cantrips, or...
