    5E So Shadar-Kai are now a subrace of elves: Huh?

    I'm not understanding this move to make the Shadar-kai into a subrace of elves. They have always been described as "human like" so I don't get this. Why not introduce the Lythari?

    5E Are powergamers a problem and do you allow them to play in your games?

    I've been a gamer for over 30 years now and in all the time I've been gaming I've tried to accommodate everyone's playstyle. Well I'm afraid I don't look at powergaming as a playstyle anymore, I see it as a problem. I no longer allow powergamers at my table, nor will I play in a game with them...

    5E Looking for a generic dark gothic style setting. Not Ravenloft.

    After having watched the Castlevania series I've wanted to run a setting based loosely around the series. I'm looking for a good generic Gothic horror setting. Anyone have any ideas?

    5E Less about the numbers and more about the concept: Judging classes in 5th edition.

    Now this is my personal opinion and observation. Something that I have noticed is when judging classes and their worth there is still the 4th edition mindset where it was more about the math than the concept. 5th edition doesn't come across as being about the math but more about the concept...

    5E A question for fellow long time Forgotten Realms fans.

    If you are like me and have loved Forgotten Realms since the 80's and before then I have a question for you. Are you currently happy with the direction the Realms is going in and why? When 5th edition came out it looked as if there was a resurrection of the old Forgotten Realms that a lot of...

    5E Monster Creation rules: Anyone else not find them particularly helpful.

    The title says it all. I'm trying to create a unique Hill Giant Ghast and the monster creation rules in the DMG do not really help. I'm trying to make the creature a challenge rating 16 and it's not going very well. Anyone else share this opinion?

    5E What kind of Warlord design are you hoping for?

    I've created this poll just to get an idea of the type of Warlord people are hoping for. Right now we basically have three types of Warlords, one from 3rd edition which was called the Marshal, the Warlord from 4th edition, and the Warlord types from 5th edition. Let's see how we get on...

    5E Undead Templates: Unless I missed them, we really need these.

    I've looked through the DMG and MM with the hopes of finding something around templates and I couldn't find anything, unless I am blind. I really would like to see undead templates because there are other creatures I would like to see become undead. In my current game there is a lich who was...

    5E Do you allow fan made material in your games?

    Do you allow fan made material in your games? We aren't talking about a background here or a little magic item there. We are talking about a lot of fan made stuff you find on DMsGuild, other internet sites, or things your player's come up with classes, feats, races, sub-systems etc.....

    5E Dragonlance: Is it possible to run a Dragonlance game using the current core rules and material?

    Is it really possible to run a Dragonlance game using the core material we have at the moment? I'm also a big Dragonlance fan and during my thread about UA I mentioned that I would like to see some new mechanics with regards to Wizards of High Sorcery and the various moon phases. It also got...

    5E Unearthed Arcana:Are they revealing limitations in the 5th edition system?

    Something I've noticed with most of the Unearthed Arcana's is they seem to running out of design room. We are getting several classes doing essentially the same thing but only in very minor ways. I'm seeing a less class system and a more broad system coming into play because class niche is...

    5E Tales from the Yawning Portal: A better title would be "Nezram's tales of adventure".

    Durnan and the Yawning Portal having nothing to do with visitors from other planes and worlds, it is an inn that houses people who wish to gain the fame and fortune by delving into Undermountain. If they wanted to go this route then they should have used a character that would actually make...

    5E Points of Light setting and current cross-over strategy: Round peg in the square hole.

    Wizards would have been better off using the Points of Light setting as a nexus between the different rules. Since PoL really hasn't much background info, it is the perfect place that could contain portals to other worlds and still give people a world that is fully generic. They could have...

    5E Eldritch Knight: Better Arcane Archer than the subclass?

    After looking over the Eldritch Knight, it looks like that subclass can make a better Arcane Archer than the actual subclass. Now unfortunately, the Eldritch Knight doesn't have an "Imbue Arrow" ability, but neither does the Arcane Archer subclass. What the Eldritch Knight does allow is the...

    5E Why is WoTc still pushing AP's when the majority of gamers want something else?

    According to a Wizards survey, most people run their games using homebrew. Now this can mean anything from using an established setting but giving it your own stamp, or using a completely made up world. Now Wizards always claimed they were using the surveys to give people what they want but it...

    5E Help me create a good Hobgoblin battle mage.

    I'm looking for advice on creating a Hobgoblin battle mage using the stats from Volo's Guide to Monsters. Anyone have any build ideas? I want to take advantage of their proficiency in 2 martial weapons of my choice so I'm not sure if evoker would be a good idea.

    5E Volo's Guide to Monsters Hobgoblins: You would think there are many cities.

    When you read the write up on Hobgoblins you would think they have many cities in the Realms. The write up talks about them having a secret police, strictly military like, pursuit of martial and arcane arts, institutions for the arcane arts, ranks, following orders, etc.... I could picture them...

    5E The Kenku's Mimicry ability.

    Here is the ability: Mimicry. You can mimic sounds you have heard, including voices. A creature that hears the sounds you make can tell they are imitations with a successful Wisdom (Insight) check opposed by your Charisma (Deception) check. Notice the part that I highlighted. Since a kenku can...
