  1. Son of the Serpent

    Fixing the polearm and taking back its seat as generally best nonprojectile weapon from the sword.

    Polearm have been the most successful general type of weapon (whether martial or otherwise) other than projectile weapons on a consistant basis throughout history. Lets make d&d reflect that instead of having spears be nonsensically weak options. I was thinking of doing several things: 1...
  2. Son of the Serpent

    IRL nominations (historically classic ie religious, pantheonic, folkloric, no newer than 1600) for mythical cosmologies you enjoy including in d&d.

    There will be a poll that goes up in 3 days time in which we will vote for the most popular cosmologies to include in d&d. You may nominate 3. If you do not list all 3 when you make your initial post dont post the additional one(s) in later posts, rather, edit them into your original...

    3.5 Example of LA being revised because when applied to a PC it powerscaled so horribly that buy off was considered inadequate on close examination.

    My personal example is vampires. One of my first DMs allowed a guy to chamge the LA of a vampire to 3 because the weaknesses of vampires are so prohibitively awful. Due to this early influence on me ive also revised their LA for PCs.

    3.5 Domain wizards domains make little or no sense.

    this is because the domains shouldnt be full sized schools but should at least be a bit bigger and yet arent, all spells in a family that are represented in a domain even partially should be fully represented in a domain (example: all dispel magic should be in anti magic rather than the weakest...

    3.5 There has to be a more exhaustive source of arcane domains than those which are listed in unearthed arcana

    The entry in unearthed arcana makes it clear these lists are at maximum only partial. There are spells present with greater and lesser instances which exist but are not listed as well. Where can i find the expanded lists? They have to exist.

    3.5 Aging effects

    I saw somewhere a few years ago a version of the aging table that included the child or youth (cant remember for sure but think it was one of those) age category. Cant remember what book its in but its just like the normal one. Does anyone know where i can find this?

    3.5 Arcane domain spells

    Is there a wider listing of domain spells than the single one per level listing in the domain wizard entry of unearthed arcana? I know there are more domain spells than what is on that page.

    Partial reconstitution of jazirian and ahriman

    Im setting up for a campaign arc that will occur in a land that thought it would be a great idea to enslave a large number of devils and celestials to a lesser extent. I want them to have been just smart enough about it to not involve contracts with fiends, to only keep them a year a piece...
  15. Son of the Serpent


    In d&d 3 and 3.5 there is wish and greater wish. Other than miracle are there any other kinds of wish or, like miracle, spells similar to wish in d&d? Are any of them in some way more useful in a particular type of story than wish as a plot device? Or simply better for certain uses? Also...

    3.5 Question about languages in d&d 1e through 3.5

    Im trying to locate a complete and accurate (or as close as i can come for both of those qualifiers) tree of languages in d&d for these editions. Clarifying edit: a tree that details how the languages dervie from older ones from the most ancient one or couple in the multiverse carrying...

    3.5 Looking for the name of a mystery monster

    I used to know about this exceptionally large race of creature and now i cant remember its name. Its ancient, has a ridiculous number of armlike tentacles ending in mouths, existed back when physical qualities of the universe were not yet established, individuals are generally now trapped in...
