    D&D 5E Flanking, advantage, and opportunity attacks

    I like having players think tactically and positioning characters, we’re all about the grid. I find advantage is far too much just from location. Matt Colville’s “Running the Game“ video on the math of D&D really clarified why it felt too much, it’s a huge benefit. A straight +2 is cleaner, but...

    D&D 5E 3 Classic Settings Coming To 5E?

    So true, Savage Coast in the Red Steel iteration was itself a reinvention of the Savage Coast from what appeared in the Princess Arc episodes in Dragon Magazine. The Red Steel iteration leaned heavily into the “Age of Exploration” theme of Renaissance-level nations encountering stone-age or...

    D&D 5E 3 Classic Settings Coming To 5E?

    Mystara’s Savage Coast was great that way: lupin, rakasta, tortle, cayma, gurrash (crocodile), lizard folk, wallara (chameleon), manscorpion, aranea, enduk (winged minotaur)…

    D&D 5E The New Drow Replacement?

    I wanted a more monstrous species to fit the demonic-spider-worshipping-schemers so I lifted the aranea into that roll. They use their shapechanging to take any PC-eligible-race’s humanoid form, coming natively from a parallel Otherworld that they enter the prime plane in dark shadowy places, or...

    D&D 5E Which classes shine/suffer in campaigns highly restricting found magic items?

    So much great advice, thanks everyone! The players are getting done with a continent-spanning/plane-hopping/artifact-collecting/world-saving adventure built from stitching together solo adventures. For the next campaign, I’m bouncing between a published campaign-length adventure path and a...

    D&D 5E Which classes shine/suffer in campaigns highly restricting found magic items?

    I’m winding down a campaign that started at 1st level and has now reached 14th, the end might be 16th level PCs. I realize I was quite free with giving out magic item rewards. They players had fun playing out wild item reward wishes. Lotsa legendary items, the players have had a blast. I’m...

    D&D 5E 20th level Sorcerer vs the world

    True, it is a very expansive definition of the casting of a spell to also include everything produced due to the casting of a spell. And his initiative/surprise rules he wanted. Ooof, and the pages about his wish for stealth/hidden to work like.

    D&D 5E 20th level Sorcerer vs the world

    This would be a perfect ENWorld poll of DMs, would a DM allow initiative in Hohige’s imagined rules.

    What are the common wisdom you see it defying?

    D&D 5E What is ARCADIA?

    Oh man, I hope that’s the case. The supporters have jumped over 5,000 since Arcadia launched. I know Matt wants to be able to pay the authors, artists, and rest of the staff “very well”, as he has said on his live streams.

    D&D 5E What is ARCADIA?

    I’ve been a Patreon supporter of MCDM. Subscribers are hopefully aware that Arcadia is going to only have a run of 3 issues then MCDM is going to pause to see how well or even if it worked. They want it sustaining through subscriptions plus single issue sales in their store. If it looks like...

    D&D 5E What is ARCADIA?

    The retainer was such an unexpected bonus! I hope any subclass they publish in future articles includes a retainer version. I expect my PCs are already going to get a chance to earn a Titan sorcerer retainer. They are now entering the Fire Giant King’s fortress in Against the Giants and there...

    D&D 5E What is ARCADIA?

    Right, the mount ”rules” look to be designed to add onto to the 5e rules, not replace. And it’s not an adding of complexity IMO, any more than adding any a player-controlled monster is adding complexity. There are 6 mounted-variant monster stat blocks, for variants of creatures that were raised...

    D&D 5E What is ARCADIA?

    OMG the Titan Heart Sorcerer is a genius idea! I’m loving this whole issue so much.

    Extremely excited for this! One of Patreon projects I’m glad to have started backing this past year.

    D&D 5E What is the appeal of the weird fantasy races?

    D&D 5E What is the appeal of the weird fantasy races?

    I feel vaguely dirty posting in a 3,000+ post thread that might be worst summarized as “... no, you’re badwrongfun for liking D&D games with those rules, I will continue to post until you agree with me”. But I couldn’t resist sharing that Hasbro seems to think that horse hoofs is no barrier to...

    D&D General Dragonlance or Mystara?

    My understanding, based on reading the Annotated Dragonlance Chronicals, the annotations from the authors mentioned that the novels and modules were being developed in coordination with each other, with the modules being written before the novels about half way through. The novels were tracking...

    D&D General Dragonlance or Mystara?

    The Vaults of Pandius and the Mystara forum at The Piazza are amazing resources. So much great fan stuff expanded there, if you want more inspiration about themes to explore in Mystara. Thorfin Tait’s Mapping Mystara project is an utterly jaw dropping fan cartography experiment.

    D&D 5E Fantasy Appalachia

    Something I’ve remembered being taught about the region, there seems to be a lot of mystery around causes or origins of their bald mountains. While not rocky outcropings, the bald mountains of Appalachia were often grassy and used for grazing, especially because during the summer it was cooler...
