    D&D 5E What do you think the 2020 Summer, Fall, and Winter D&D books will be?

    Printing and distribution would be affected. Promotional activities would be impacted as well; it would make sense to delay to ensure you can have the most optimal marketing and launch conditions.

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    There are one or two posters on here who advocate that the main focus should be on saving the economy. Just, no.

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    This is why the recommendation is to wash your hands regularly even if you stay indoors precisely because there are items in your home that have recently come from outside. Do not touch your mouth, nose or eyes with unwashed hands if you've handled items recently brought inside. Managing...

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    Nope, just use a bar of soap and hot water - that is all you need. People are focusing too much on hand wash. If you don't have hand sanitizer then a) do not touch your mouth, nose or eyes and b) wash your hands with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds once you are indoors making sure you...

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    Spurious answer at best. If you don't focus on saving lives the mortality rate from the virus plus collateral increased mortality due to an overwhelmed health system - heart attacks not being dealt with; strokes not being dealt with; insufficient capacity to deal with trauma; insufficient...

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    The only proven way to reduce infection rates - until there's a vaccine - is by social distancing/quarantine. Avoid close personal contact with other people. Indeed, if you are elderly or have underlying health conditions (there are quite a lot) that make you vulnerable to severe disease, then...

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    Just heard this. Among other things, my UK government is proposing an emergency power (among others) to quarantine people who are considered a danger to public health. In other words, if you don't act responsibly, you will find yourself being forcibly quarantined. I should be shocked at that...

    It's EVERY day. You'll get used to it.

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    There's a time and a place for philosophy - this isn't it. This is a time to be part of the solution, otherwise you are part of the problem.

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    Because they are democratically elected by the people and therefore are given the authority by the people and are responsible to the people? How about that? Or, in the case of Communist China, the state gives itself authority and doesn't need to explain itself. Which is why they were able to...

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    You sound a lot like the infamous Mary Mallon AKA Typhoid Mary who created Typhoid outbreaks in the early 20th century. She was a carrier who never experienced symptoms but was highly infectious. Even when she was tracked down and identified she failed to act responsibly because she didn't see...

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    Re: point 3 The responsibility of any government should be to protect its citizens. So, in terms of dealing with the pandemic it is the duty of the government 'to handle the pandemic' to protect the people. There should not be any argument against that. In the USA you have your Constitution...

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    China has clearly demonstrated, without a shadow of a doubt, that when it comes to responding to the coronavirus there's no such thing as overkill. Prevention is ALWAYS better than cure.

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    Flattening the curve is critical unless you want to see a mortality rate that makes the Spanish Flu deaths look like peanuts. If you do nothing then the healthcare system becomes overwhelmed (see Italy) and people who could be saved with medical intervention will die. Not to mention deaths...

    The ultimate physical consequence of COVID 19 will indeed last longer than the economic effects...

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    It was an unknown disease - trends or not, the alarm should have been raised from the beginning. There are no excuses for this. The Chinese authorities covered it up until late January.

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    First reported case of COVID 19 appeared on November 17. This was many weeks before the Chinese authorities started reporting cases. This is from the South China Morning Post reporting on unpublished Chinese government data. The Chinese authorities kept things quiet for quite a while...

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    In Italy at present the Case Fatality Rate is over 6%. This is huge and increasing numbers of younger people are experiencing severe illness. There are likely specific reasons why the CFR rate is so high in Italy but still... The CFR is the percentage of people who get COVID 19 who then go on...

    D&D 5E Does anyone else feel like the action economy and the way actions work in general in 5e both just suck?

    How about some examples to demonstrate your issues? I disagree with your entire post - there's nothing seriously wrong with how actions work in 5e. That doesn't means it's perfect; bonus actions sometimes cause me to scratch my head - they're not elegant but they do the job. By the way, D&D...
