    D&D Movie/TV Bridgerton Star Regé-Jean Page Joins D&D Movie

    Oooh, I would love to see Page as a fiend warlock of Graz'zt. Dressed in a revealing outfit that flaunts his physique. You know Graz'zt would be like I must have that young man's body and soul.

    D&D General Your favorite low-stat character

    I'd say Misty Vale, my half-elf Divine Soul Sorcerer X/Life Cleric of Selune 1. On the surface she seemed like a charming but bubbleheaded wimp spouting hippy cliches. But appearances were deceiving. She was much tougher and more insightful than she looked. Strength 6 Dexterity 14...

    D&D General If D&D were created today, what would it look like?

    I'd say some of the longstanding sacred cows that 5E has been slowly edging away from would be flat gone. The game would have full-on embraced contemporary RPG conventions. --I think the XP system would be gone and the D&D would be some sort of milestone experience gain. --All character...

    D&D 5E 5e and the Cheesecake Factory: Explaining Good Enough

    This makes me wish there was a Cheesecake Factory in this godforsaken town and COVID-19 was over so I could eat there without worrying ... Anyway, with regards to the popularity of 5E, I think there are several things. Some of which agree with The Cheesecake Factory theory. --Name/Brand...

    D&D 5E The Fall Of The Dwarves: What Races Do People Actually Play?

    Dwarven society is often portrayed as hidebound. So what happens to the dwarf whose nature falls outside of society's convention? The rigidity of their society actually presents compelling opportunities for "outsider" stories. I have played upon this idea with past PCs.

    D&D 5E The Fall Of The Dwarves: What Races Do People Actually Play?

    I am a dedicated caster player and try to optimize. In 5E, Hill Dwarves are one of my go-to races. And when I play a dwarf cleric I know I will be a hardy caster, not some wimpy wimpy elf. HA! I have often tried to portray my dwarven characters as more cultured than they are stereotypically...

    D&D Movie/TV Chris Pine To Star In D&D Movie

    It is a positive sign they got an A-list actor attached to this. In years past we would be scrounging the bottom of the B-list and starting to go over the C-list, lol. Fortunately, memories of that Movie Which Shall Not Be Named have faded. Pine is experienced in action, science fiction and...

    D&D General What would a succubus say?

    If a PC misses 50%+ of their attacks during a combat -- "Failure is such a turnoff." If a male PC misses 50%+ of his attacks during a combat -- rolls her eyes "Impotent." When a PC kills someone -- licks her lips "mmmmm ... sexy." When a PC kills someone in a spectacularly bloody fashion --...

    D&D General Kender PC, Yes or No?

    The only place kender belong is on the dining table of ravenous nalfeshnee demons.

    D&D 5E How often do characters die in your campaigns?

    In 5E I have found character death to be rare. In the large majority of campaigns it never happens. But there have been a few. That is contrast from the old days. In 3.X character death was somewhat more common. In 2E it was considerably more common. In 1E characters might as well have...

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

    When I read that there is a ritual which can transform a human into a yuan-ti pureblood I had the following idea for a character: She was captured by the yuan-ti. Because of her innate magical talent they decided to perform the ritual which transformed her into a yuan-ti pureblood. Not long...

    D&D 5E What is up with the popularity of watching other D&D groups play the game?

    I blocked that 2000 movie out. I no longer remember what happened in it. That probably is a good thing.
  14. Ogre Mage

    D&D General Do you allow "crossplaying" at your table? Has it ever caused problems?

    I am a gay male player and play female characters about 75% of the time. It has not caused problems.
  15. Ogre Mage

    D&D 5E What is up with the popularity of watching other D&D groups play the game?

    Somewhat off topic, but the popularity of livestream D&D shows reminds me of the rise of reality TV shows in the 1990s and early 2000s (I am showing my age here). The Real World on MTV, a show about seven strangers living together in a loft in NYC was the first one I remember. It debuted in...

    D&D 5E Are there any races post-tashas that compare with mountain dwarf for casters?

    In the PHB, I think the half-elf still rivals the mountain dwarf as a caster. A floating +2, +1, +1 (under Tasha's variant), darkvision, 30 ft. speed (vs. 25 for dwarf), resistant to charm magic, immune to sleep magic, proficiency in two skills of your choice and a language proficiency of your...

    D&D 5E My Favorite Player Options From Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything

    The subclasses I really want to play are: Twilight Domain Cleric. Peace Domain Cleric. Circle of the Stars Druid. Aberrant Mind Sorcerer. Clockwork Soul Sorcerer. Genie Warlock.

    D&D 5E Tasha’s cauldron character thread

    Because Tasha's allows racial bonuses to be moved around, I was considering a mountain dwarf genie warlock with +2 CON and +2 CHA. He is a miner whose activities unearthed a dao trapped in a gem. He freed the dao in exchange for his warlock powers. And now he has become an adventurer to get...

    D&D 5E A First Look at Tasha’s Lineage System In AL Player’s Guide - Customizing Your Origin In D&D

    The mountain dwarf's proficiency in medium armor does not provide shield proficiency. It works differently from the Moderately Armored feat. If I play a Mountain Dwarf with Heavily Armored feat, am I meant to use a shield?

    D&D 5E Two Subclasses from Tasha for Barbarian and Warlock

    I'm looking forward to playing a genie warlock. Considering both fluff and crunch, it is my favorite warlock patron. Genies have always been one of favorite D&D monsters.
