    D&D 5E How are people currently feeling about 5e?

    A. The departure of Monte Cook makes me a little nervous. While he's not my favorite game designer, the current team is made up of the people that bored or irritated me all the way to other publishers and game systems just a couple years ago, when I discovered that I just didn't have fun playing...

    D&D 5E One thing I want in my 5e!

    Give me back my monsters! I want the monsters that got ignored in 4e back. And Ideally, I want the ones who had special iconic powers to all have them again. Annd Put the monsters back in their categories. Example: It really bugged me how they changes up all the fiend types. Alot of them didnt...

    Bring Back Verisimilitude, add in More Excitement!

    Here are the things I would want to see in the next Edition of D&D. Some of them are "New things", and some are things they took out that I think should have just been handled differently instead of completely removed. Of course, comments are welcome. In order of Priority 0. No rules-based...

    No More Reptiles with Boobs!

    That always drives me crazy. Dragons, Snake People, Birds... If they're based on animals that aren't mammals, and aren't obviously "mammal from the waist up" like a drider or something, why are you giving the females boobs? And why is it that cat people and dog people and such have ape boobs...

    Houserules to Introduce More Dynamic Combat?

    I want to encourage the players to do more interesting things in combat. More moving around, more maneuvers, etc. Here are some of the things I've got so far: 1. The Vital Strike Chain is now just part of BAB progression (you get them for free as you qualify). This should make it less...

    Game Balance Opinions?

    I've been reading the Conan RPG (Atlantean Edition and 2e), and it looks like alot of fun, I'd like to use the system for my next game (though maybe in my own setting). However, I haven't seen it in play yet, so I'm looking for some input on things to look out for. In particular, I'm looking...

    D&D 2E Pathfinder+Conan 2e...

    I've just come across Conan 2e. It looks very well thought out, and seems to be a really good Sword and Sorcery style d20 game. However I have most of the Pathfinder books. and Pathfinder has alot of great options. I consider it more fun than 3.x, but I'm really enjoying the low magic...

    Homebrew: Culture Taken out of player Races.

    So here's my Idea (and something I'd like to do for my upcoming campaign). Going through the races, and anything that is cultural and/or something that is learned, gets taken out and replaced, and the races are adjusted to be the same power level without the culture built in. At the moment...

    Mercenaries: Help Pricing Adventurer Hirelings?

    So, I'm looking for some advice on pricing out the services of NPC Adventurers by level. If the party is looking to hire on a level 5 cleric, can I get some advice on either: 1. Flat prices per day, or 2. Reasonable Profit Shares. The flat prices are probably harder to do. for profit shares I...

    Magic the Gathering based Magic system in PFRPG?

    For a M:tG Setting and Game. Heres the Idea: Ditch the d20 magic system, and the existing caster classes. Work in M:tG Cards. - Players build their own decks. More strict rules on deck building than in actual M;tG(some things dont translate well into an RPG). - Use Magic Set Editor for some...

    D&D 4E 4E PlaneScape: Outsiders as player races.

    I'd love to see more of these. This is what my GM is allowing right now. It may be a tad beef, but alot of it is pretty situational too. The Charm effect is a departure from standard 4e, and I can only think of a couple things with similar abilities, and none are player characters. Give...

    D&D 4E 4e Wizard Retromix

    Has anyone built a custom Wizard class? Something that uses a spellbook more like in older editions of the game (swapping out encounter and at will spells using the book)? Possibly with more access to utility spells, with casting times that are more feasible when youre in a hurry? Or is this...

    Custom Practiced Spellcaster Feat

    I'm in a game where I'll be the primary Arcane Caster, as a Gish. So I'm looking to throw together a feat that works in the way of Practiced Spellcaster, but for Spells Per Day. I won't be stepping on the toes of a primary caster, so I'm looking to boost spellcasting to still be the primary...

    Monster Manual 3 New Math?

    I've been hearing lots of people telling me that the MM3 is better overall and uses different math than the MM1. Can someone show me the differences, and possibly point me to a table of the expected numbers for different roles at different levels?

    Why *Dont* you like Forgotten Realms?

    Not looking for a flamewar, I personally Like Forgotten Realms, Pre Spellplague. I know lots of people avoid Forgotten Realms stuff though. The only thing that really bugs me is how spread out the history is. If there were a single history book that was expansive (a more detailed Grand History...

    Virtual Tabletop software?

    I've recently been shown glittercomm and d20pro. Have people used these? Are there any virtual tabletops that other people recommend? One thing I'd like to see, is one that does NOT force the use of a grid, having circular templates and measuring ranges and distances in straight lines. (instead...

    D&D 4E 4e MMs? Which should I get?

    Having seen a 4e monster stat block, I noticed they seem to be pretty easily used in a non4e game. I'm going to run a few 4e monsters in an upcoming pathfinder game. For those who don't know, while pathfinder is a 3e derivative game, the design philosophies are similar to 4e, and the monsters...
