    D&D 5E Could a Sorcerer with a 1 Wizard dip fulfill everything unique about a wizard?

    So, when discussions about Wizards and Sorcerers come up, there's talk about ritual casting, spells known, and the ability to write down spells, right? Well, what about if a sorcerer takes a 1 level dip into wizard? Really, the wizard's entire benefits are basically in their spellbook. A...

    D&D 5E Spells and Magic Items combo.

    Recently, I've had a player cast Time Stop, an often contested spell, to do the following combination: 1. He drank a potion of speed 2. He drank a potion of invulnerability 3. He used a spell scroll of True Polymorph As expected, this combination melted the encounter like butter and it was...

    D&D 5E Instant Death. Am I the only one who experienced this or what?

    Every so often, there are questions about the deadliness of D&D and how to improve it. From short adventuring days to yo-yo healing to instant-win control spells. When I see these questions, especially coming out of a recent game that I DM, I feel like I'm somehow playing a different game. So...

    D&D 5E Claim: The game is NOT balanced around 6-8 encounters

    I'm here to make the claim that the adventuring day is neither balanced around 6-8 encounters nor is it gamebreaking to have 1 encounter a day. There seems to be confusion about what the game is balanced around, whether it's about number of encounters, number of rests, or amount of deaths a...

    D&D 5E Oil+Alchemist's Fire

    If I get this entire interaction right, a level 1 character (assuming they found some way to buy them) with these 2 items can do Round 1: Throw oil. 1d20+dex attack roll, 1d4+dex damage Round 2: Throw Alchemist's fire. 1d20+dex attack, 1d4+dex+5(oil)+1d4(monster's turn) Round 3: Regular...

    D&D 5E Why are wizard's so weak? (A parody)

    Has anyone noticed how weak wizards are in D&D? It's ridiculous that Wizards of the Coast refuse to make their spellcasters good. For one, their HitDice are so small, it's possible to die from two hits from a goblin at level 1! Or even one hit if they crit! They don't incentivize...

    D&D 5E Would you let your player choose their magic items they get?

    Basically the title. Also, players: would you be upset that the DM chooses the magic items rather than allow you to choose and introduce them because you asked? Personally, I like to control the rate magic items appear and which ones appear when. I wouldn't care if my DM didn't give a magic...

    D&D 5E 4-Element monks are the only monk archetype that excels against flying enemies

    I feel that people over exaggerate the 4-element monk problems because they put stuff on paper and make a snap judgement or read someone's online blog and be completely convinced. I know there's the Kensei monk with their Kensei weapon and Sun Soul monk with their Radiant sun bolt but they are...

    D&D 5E How much cover is peeking through a wall?

    Let's say you are behind a corner and have full cover against a ranged enemy. They know you like to peek out from a corner and wants to ready an action to shoot you when you pop out. You want to pop out slightly to get as much cover as you can, three-fourths or half, while still being able to...

    D&D 5E Can someone hide from multiple enemies?

    So, let's say someone wanted to hide in combat. Enemy A can see the PC but enemy B cannot. Is it possible for the PC to be hidden from enemy B but not from enemy A? And let's say both A & B can't see the PC but the PC only passed Enemy B's passive Perception. How would that situation work...

    D&D 5E Wish and the requirement removal

    So wish says that you don't need to meet the requirements in that spell, it simply takes effect. Now, it mentions that this includes costly components but it doesn't say that it's only costly components. Would that mean, say, I wanted to cast resurrection. Would that remove the requirement that...

    D&D 5E A use for True Strike

    This isn't an argument or anything, I think true strike is broken (in the underpowered way) but I think these combos are decent enough: Level 3 sorcerer, Brass/Gold Draconic, Quickened & Twinned Metamagic. So, first round, cast Quickened Burning Hands and cast twinned True Strike as an action...

    D&D 5E Passively Perceiving in Dim Light

    We can all agree darkvision isn't a perfect mode of vision since PC's can only see in dim light and therefore have disadvantage in perception checks that rely on sight. My problem is that I don't know if passive Perception relies on sight and takes the -5. I mean, hearing ability hasn't been...

    D&D 5E Unconscious PC's and smart monsters

    Does anyone else find it strange that so many NPC's have to die? Like, I get cultists and characters on death row anyways. But why is it so common to have, say, common bandits risk their whole lives to take money from random travelers when things have obviously gone south? On that note: I feel...

    D&D 5E The Crafting Rules in the PHB are just fine.

    I see the PHB, DMG and D&D in general get alot of flack for their rules on crafting but they're actually pretty good, all things considered. Okay, not good for a player who just wants to craft that +1 weapon before sundown but for more reasonable projects, they aren't that bad. I could...

    D&D 5E The pursuit of fun

    I feel that the endless pursuit of "fun" can often end up causing reckless decisions that quickly reduce said fun. Other times, it causes something that increases the fun to be overlooked as one can't imagine how it would be fun before they even try it. For instance, someone might think...

    Calling your players out to engage roleplay

    Has anyone, as a DM, called their more quiet players out during mundane task to eek out roleplay? Like, when one party member is talking to an NPC do you ask what the others are doing in the meantime? I think its a good strategy to get the NPC to react more organically to the party and have more...
