    D&D 5E Tasha's Summoning and Sorcerers

    Why Tasha's Why?! So, I just went through the new spell list for Sorcerers in Tasha's, and as you might have guessed, I noticed that sorcerers do not get a single one of the new summoning spells. Oh sure, the Aberrant Mind gets Summon Abberration, and the Clockwork Soul gets Summon Construct...

    D&D 5E Elven Race rewrite

    So, I've got a new setting idea I've been playing around with, and one idea I've had for it is to reunify the elven races. I figure the sub-races could actually be the elves focusing on either Arcane Magic, Primal or Divine. Arcane would be the High, Primal the Wood, and then Drow would cover...

    D&D 5E Homebrew rules for focuses

    Technically, this idea has been bumping around my head since the Eberron UA from last year. It was pointed out that there is no difference or reason to buy and use different Foci or a component pouch. What has been more surprising to me is that I can't even find homebrew rules for this. Sure...

    D&D 5E Improving the Heavy Property

    So, I've been messing with the equipment list and using a few different homebrew sources to add properties and weapons to the list. While gathering homebrew I ran into an idea of improving the Heavy property because it really doesn't do much of anything (it is a penalty to weapons, I...

    D&D 5E Talking about the Alchemist

    I am sneaking onto my phone, so I don't have all the texts in front of me, but I wanted to talk about the alchemist subclass and try and figure out why it is so nerfed and what some good solutions could be. I want to compare it to the artilloerist, because it looked like it barely changed. So...

    D&D 5E Ranking and discussing Strongholds and Followers

    So, the Kingdom and Warfares kickstarter got me thinking about Strongholds and Followers again. I haven't had a lot of chances to use the rules, though a DM of mine is running a campaign where we are using them (post-apocalyptic so we had to ignore a lot of the rules involving money, which has...

    D&D 5E When a Paladin is Mounted

    So, a player asked me a question recently I was unprepared for, and some quick Googling didn't provide me with an official answer. For some context, we use a battle grid with hexes fairly regularly. When a paladin is mounted on a large creature (warhorse, elk, who really cares), where does...

    A Few Paladin Oaths

    So, a friend of mine has been working on creating some Paladin oaths. He has not gotten any level abilities, simply the Tenents, Oath Spells, and Channel Divinity options, but he wanted me to go ahead and put these out here and get some more eyes on them, since the community tends to...

    D&D 5E How do you rule multiple damage types versus reductions

    So, I already know what my DM rules, we haven't gotten into details about why he does but I know he isn't going to change it. But I am curious, since he is so certain and adamant, if this is a common ruling based upon a rule I am not aware of, or just his interpretation of something. I DM as...

    Pathfinder 1E Adventure Lookup

    So, Matt Colville has launched his Adventure Lookup website. The goal of the project is to create a searchable database so that people looking for D&D style games (Yes he wants Pathfinder stuff too) can figure out what adventures might suit their purposes. For example, if you're hankering...

    D&D 5E Decent Warlock build

    So, I'm making a Warlock to replace my previous character. My problem is that, frankly, that previous character was immensely powerful due to our adventures up to date and the things he ended up with and the build I perfected over 10 levels of play. Now I need to make a level 12 warlock with...

    Rant about my Party

    So, I really need to vent about this, in part because I find it so absurd and weird, and in part because on of the guys seemed shocked that I've played with multiple groups of people. He seems to think my attitudes towards the game indicate I have never played with different groups before, and...

    D&D 5E Island Adventure and Slow Natural Recovery Question

    So, I was reading a thread about pirates, someone mentioned a shipwrecked adventuring party and that sounded like a really good idea for one of my next games. Session zero, you are shipwrecked on an island, we are paying attention to encumbrance, time, rations, food spoiling, and all that other...

    D&D 5E What is a Rakshasas place in the Nine Hells

    So, I'm catching up on Critical Role and they are researching the Nine Hells to deal with a Rakshasa, and they are fairly vague about it. I've got a homebrew world I'm working on, and hey, I've been meaning to figure out what is going on in the Nine Hells so I start trying to research...

    D&D 5E Homebrewed Weapon help

    So, I gave my Barbarian player a magic axe, and due to a variety of circumstances it has been decided that this axe is more magical than he figured out the first time. The Axe is made of a multitude of interlocking pieces, and I figured it was created by some being that loved precision, beauty...

    D&D 5E Need Help with Con-Game

    So, I've been ridiculously busy this past month and a half, which means unfortunately that I haven't had time to test out my dungeon for an upcoming Convention. We do Witt-con at Wittenberg University in late March, and I'd like some extra eyes on this to see if people think it is relatively...

    D&D 5E Ridiculous Sprinting Build

    I don't have Volo's Guide yet unfortunately, but I've seen a few things on the Tabaxi, and building the fastest landspeed character is an amusing exercise. So, here I go. Tabaxi race- Base spd 30ft Monk 20th level- +30 ft Mobile Feat- +10ft So, 70ft of movement so far, now to bring in the UA...

    D&D 5E Lich Incredible Legendary Action Economy

    I looked at the Lich again because of the Silence spell discussion, and I saw something insane. Now, I have a 1st printing, so I want to make sure this isn't an errata (and it doesn't appear in the errata document) or a mistake, but it looks like the Lich's cantrip legendary action does not...
