    D&D 5E The classes that nobody wants to play

    As a companion to the "Most played classes in your local gaming area?" poll I started, what are the classes in your local gaming area that never or rarely show up at the gaming table? If you have any insight as to why, feel free to elaborate. You may choose up to 4. In my local gaming area...

    D&D 5E Best 5E warlock patron for character optimization?

    I'm curious to see people's opinion on this.

    Ranger, Rogue or Scout?

    What do you think are the relative advantages and disadvantages of each? The game will be starting at level 1 and I don't know what other people will be playing yet. I'm hoping to use Whisper Gnome for race.

    Skill Mastery and Use Magic Device

    Normally, you cannot take 10 on UMD. Does the rogue's Skill Mastery special ability allow you to bypass this restriction? I have heard conflicting views on this, does anyone have a link to the OFFICIAL WoTC ruling?

    Skill modifiers: how good are you?

    What is the measuring stick when looking at skill modifiers (ranks + ability modifier)? How "good" is a character at a skill if he has +4 to diplomacy or +8 to knowledge (arcana)? What is considered a beginner level of skill and what is an expert? Below are my approximations, I was wondering...

    What level should a campaign end at?

    One of my biggest frustrations is that 90% of the time I play in campaigns which begin at 1st level and end around 5th level. Then we start over with something else. This has happened so many times I want to scream. What would you consider the ideal "stopping level" for a campaign?

    Ability score of 18

    If you could have ONE ability score of 18 in REAL LIFE but be Joe Average in all other respects (10-11), which one would you choose? Why and what would you then do?

    Most powerful character archetypes in 3.5

    Relying strictly on WoTC published material (Core, 3.5 Splatbooks, FR and Eberron Stuff), what do you think are the most powerful character archetypes in 3.5? The cleric archer? The greatsword/axe warrior? The spiked chain warrior? Melee cleric? Wizard/Incantatrix? The shapechanging druid...

    D&D Novels that should become movies?

    Of the published D&D novels (FR, Dragonlance, et al.) which book/series do you think would work well as a movie? My selection would be the Dragonlance Chronicles. There is a "fellowship" of sorts which sets off on a quest, but the particulars are quite different from LoTR. The drama is...

    How many PC deaths in your current campaign?

    For us it has been .... FR (6th level party): 2. Iron Kingdoms (8th level party): 4.

    The Rogue and Cleric don't get along

    I have noticed a RP problem that often pops up in many campaigns -- the rogue and cleric have ethical conflicts. The LG, NG or CG cleric clashes with the rogue. Some rogues may be CG which tends to minimize the conflict, but when the rogue is N on the good to evil axis problems frequently...

    Which module in WotC's Adventure Path Series is the deadliest?

    Okay, which WoTC Adventure Path Series Module was the biggest deathtrap and TPK machine that sent the players shivering in fear? :] Feel free to discuss why you thought a particular module was deadly.

    Druids, The City Guard and Animal Companions

    Entering a town seems to have become a problem for my druid because of her animal companion. At 1st level she had a wolf and it was okay. But once you start going up levels and get things like apes and bears, the city guard starts to take a dim view. God forbid the day I gain a dire animal...

    Ideal four PC party in 3.5?

    A heated debate on a similar topic over at the WoTC forums called Ideal four-PC party got me thinking -- what would be an optimal party of 4 PCs in 3.5? Assume the adventures will run from levels 1-20 (not epic) with a good mix of both combat and roleplaying encounters. A lot of people on the...

    Dwarf barbarians, movement and medium armor

    Can a dwarf barbarian with fast movement still move 30 while wearing medium armor? Or does it knock them down to 20? I am confused on how the dwarf's "encumbrance negation" ability works.

    PCs with an ability score of 5 or less

    Have you ever played a PC, or alongside another PC, who had resonably good stats except for one score which was 5 or less? I am curious how this was roleplayed and if the character seemed playable or unplayable in general. I am also curious if low scores in some abilities might create a more...
