    D&D 5E Eldritch spear + spellsniper + distant spell

    As a dm i might come up with an enemy flying sorloc targeting the pc sorlocs flight spell with a distant dispel magic at some point...

    D&D 5E Eldritch spear + spellsniper + distant spell

    900ft is the far edge of modern ranged combat situations, without resorting to target telescopes. but I dunno, what is this good for? Asuming the sorc got flight on he would be out of reach for most mobs in the open. This would require the dm to tailor scenarios to make them still a challenge...

    D&D 5E Has D&D Combat Always Been Slow?

    d&d combat has been slow before 5e. Except maybe 2e darksun. 5e combat is much faster still than any other edition. D&d combat can get slow, if you run many opponents though, but there are dm tricks to work around this. other rpgs have more or less complexity, deriving from their game...

    D&D General Kender PC, Yes or No?

    i, as a dm who tends to restrict race selection (and have been criticized for that in this forum) to meet the campaign flavor, but for sure would allow a kender in a DL campaign, would ask you: Do you follow that session 0 principle of yours also for other choices? What if elf is one of the...

    D&D General Kender PC, Yes or No?

    If i would happen to DM a DL campaign, then of course, in FR definitely not, but i voted yes since i assume you meant that?

    D&D 5E Making sense of D&D's Lore, History and Cosmology

    please could you elaborate on the topic elemental echoes of the prime a bit? i never heard of that, is it something like shadowfell and feywild connected closely to the prime, with some weird things going on with prominent landmarks showing up altered depending on which plane you are?

    Worlds of Design: Baseline Assumptions of Fantasy RPGs

    i tend to define a tech level equivalent to some RL epoch and area. For me and hopefully for my players also it helps with immersion into what the setting looks like. That might imply that even firearms exist, but also that eventually greatswords and platemail do not. the main assumptions you...

    D&D 5E Making sense of D&D's Lore, History and Cosmology

    i use many 2nd ed and some 3e principles, but i play 5e of course. Some of the things i keep: Deity ranking Spell level needs 10+ level for casting attribute. i use pantheon of published settings, but i reduce the number of gods at least those available to the players i normally loathe non...

    The Horror! of a Game That Never Ends

    D&D 5E Assumptions about character creation

    A good table can support any attribute distribution, evven if counter class as in not optimated. It really depends on the type of campaign: A investigative campaign wit hloads of RP and social skills would rather have everyone put soem points in Cha, Wis or Int for the social skills, whereas a...

    D&D General [Dragonlance/Faerun] Anyone here met any Cataclysm/Wall of the Faithless defenders?

    I got both types of players / DMs in my rounds. Some really hate divine (or High level NPC) interventions, especially if they are the only means of winning. But i think you got to differentiate here: As a plot device, or being far back in history these things can really rock, and i found no...

    D&D 5E SKT - Yakfolk Village makes no sense.

    Nah i thought we cleared that up already, the fire giants below do it. But that's not the point of the discussion atm.

    D&D 5E SKT - Yakfolk Village makes no sense.

    i do not know if this is official lore or taken from some discussion about if it is ok to slaughter innocent civilians in ravenloft, since they are no real people anyway. it might be like that in some domains to explain inconsistencies, but it is imho no general principle of the setting.

    D&D 5E SKT - Yakfolk Village makes no sense.

    i understand you and the other posters with similar opinion. Of course a game can work just fine, if you take the environment like the background of some simple scrolling computer game, one of these were you cannot interact with the "environment", even if you wanted to. But for me a ttop always...

    D&D 5E Making 5E Feel Old School

    Take the best of both worlds, i see no wrong in calling for or offering a a nature check to identify a creature. In old school it would have been an Int or Wis check instead, and i nboth cases the DM can adjust the DC appropriately and if the players should have no clue no mattter how high they...

    D&D 5E SKT - Yakfolk Village makes no sense.

    Has nothing to do with playstyles imho, I mean as a DM you converse the surroundings to your group. If everything is normal then this might be a brief atmospheric detail for better immersion. But if you come to a thermal oasis caused by whatever phenomenon the DM should and will probably point...

    D&D 5E SKT - Yakfolk Village makes no sense.

    Well, then your players do not seem to pay much attention to detail, no offense, maybe they really do not care but that would not be my or my groups style neither as player or DM. If things are against "nature" that is normally highly suspicious, and a major hook - normally that something...
