    D&D 5E Clarification about Two Weapon Fighting (PHB pg. 195)

    Hello all, I haven't played 5th edition for a long while now (sadly) and have decided to brush up on the rules a bit, just because I think it's fun to at least read the books, even if I can't play. In doing so, I was reading the combat rules again, and had an interesting thought in regards to...

    D&D 5E Tracking Encumberance & other smaller things.

    Hello all, I will be moving shortly, and therefore will be starting a new group of gamers in a 5E campaign (well, as soon as I can get players anyway). The group I have been DM'ing for were all new players and I was new to RPGs and DM'ing as well. For a lot of "small stuff" I just sort of...

    Dungeons & Dragons Rules Cyclopedia

    Hello all, So, I finally broke down and bought a copy of the Rules Cyclopedia today. I had to pay quite a bit for it at a local retailer, but happy to have it, none-the-less. The back of the book states that it contains all of the rules from the D&D box sets Basic, Expert, Companion, and...

    Anybody like/play The World of Darkness?

    Hello all, Last night a friend of mine game me a copy of The (new) World of Darkness core rulebook as a going away present (I am moving). After we finished our main (Pathfinder) game most of the players went home and he ran (the rest of) us through (a small portion of) a pregen adventure that...

    D&D 5E What class really is the "jack of all trades"?

    Hello all, Been a while since I posted, but back again now. :) Anyway, on to my question that was actually spurred by another thread + last nights gaming session. Essentially, what I want to know is, if there really is a class that is the theoretical "jack of all trades". I am asking...

    D&D 5E Opinions on The Rise of Tiamat?

    Hello all, I am currently running my group through the LMoP adventure, and they're all dead set on moving to HoDTQ next, in fact, one of my players even bought the book and gave it to me to run when we're ready. :cool: I have read quite a bit about HoTDQ and am aware of it's detractors, but I...

    D&D 5E Bounded Accuracy. Where can I find it referenced?

    Hello all, I see bounded accuracy mentioned a lot on these forums, but I am not quite sure what it is. Initially, I thought it was in the DMG, so I waited until I got it (DMG) to try to look it (BA) up. Well I finally picked up my DMG over the weekend, and haven't been able to find it all...

    D&D 5E Any interest in a step-by-step guide to character creation?

    Hello all, I have finally figured out how to properly create 5E characters with confidence in what I am doing. However, as a new player, I found character creation to be one of the most difficult things to learn. IMO the PHB wasn't as clear as it should have been, and I ended up watching a...

    D&D 5E When do you expect that we will start seeing the 2nd printings of the 3 core books?

    Hello all, With the popularity of 5E, and the 3 core books doing seemingly very well on Amazon, I would venture to guess they are selling fairly well at all oulets they are available. Not knowing, I would think that WOTC has a set # of books they printed for the first run, and once they are...

    D&D 5E Please help me understand "official" 5E releases.

    Hello all, I have been reading here a lot as of late, and I always see the hardback books being listed as official releases for 5E. What I do not see mentioned are the sogftcover modules such as Ghosts of Dragonspear Castle, Murder in Baldur's Gate, Legacy of the Crystal Shard, and Vault of...

    D&D 5E Lets Discuss Feats. Do you like them? Plus, some questions!

    Hello all, I am spending more time familiarizing myself with the PHB, and have dived into reading about feats. I am playing in a Pathfinder game, so I am somewhat familiar with them, and do not see any reason why I shouldn't allow them in my games. Some of these seem fairly powerful on paper...

    D&D 5E Does Anybody Else Seriously Love the Monster Manual? My Thoughts on the MM.

    Hello all, I bought the PHB and the MM not too long ago, and have been reading through both of them as time allows. Prior to making my purchase, I assumed that I would love the PHB, but not get as much enjoyment from the MM. However, I felt as a DM, that the MM was a "must have" purchase...

    D&D 5E Negative Hit Points & Dying. I think I may have been playing it wrong. Please help.

    Hello all, I think I may have been playing dropping to zero hit points, or less, incorrectly. What I have been doing is this: When a player drops to zero HP, they fall unconsious and have to make death saving throws at the start of their turn until they are stabalized by 3 saves or a...

    D&D 5E Ok all, I just cannot wrap my head around how combat works. Please Help.

    Please help me here. I am about to DM a game and just cannot seem to wrap my head around how combat works. I have read the PHB rules many, many times, but cannot get it to sink in my head as an understandable concept. I think I have partially figured it out, but am still up in the air about...

    D&D 5E Does anybody else wish that WOTC would release paper pawns, similar to Paizo?

    Hello all, I am new to RPGs and have started playing in a bi-weekly Pathfinder game, and have been elected by my friends to DM a D&D 5E game. In preparation for playing Pathfinder for the first time, I decided to buy their beginner box a little while ago. All I can say is WOW! It's very...

    Please define a couple of common terms I see used on here

    Hello all, I am unfamiliar with some terms I see used on this forum. What does it mean when people describe a game as "crunchy"? Also, what does it mean when people say they run a game 'RAW"? Sorry for the silly questions, but I am not familiar with the terminology used here. :confused:
