    D&D 5E RIP alignment

    Certainly they are. Still, many folks want it to remain and enjoy it. I think there is a slight fetishizing of 'official content' here, mind you, but I try to follow the rule of "Just because I dont care doesn't mean no one cares" and I try to empathize with viewpoints I may disagree with. In...

    D&D 5E RIP alignment

    This seems unfortunate. Note: I haven't used alignment for a long long time now, but lots of people did and lots of people enjoyed it. Seems a shame to just drop it when if you wanted to, your table could just easily ignore it. Much easier to ignore a rule you do not like than it is to write a...

    D&D General What Have You Liked Most About Each Edition (+)

    I didn't play enough 1e/2e to have any big opinions, but I will say that I enjoyed them as an introduction to the hobby! 3/3,5e: My FAVORITE thing was the introduction of feats and the focus on character building. I enjoyed making characters of various kinds and playing with the mechanics...

    D&D 5E Players railroading dungeonmasters

    On reading more of this thread it is quite clear to me that some folks put way more effort into trying to explain game mechanics than I do. I nor my players have ever really concerned themselves with why an elf who is 300 yrs old (or whatever) would only be lvl 1. I have never really tried to...

    D&D General Nobody likes an edition warrior.

    I mean think what you waaaant but... Edit: To be less snarky and more clear, the idea that this site is free and clear of any and all attempts to influence things...well, I mean maybe it is? But it would be unique (and I mean that in the literal sense, as in the only site) to be so. What gets...

    D&D 5E Players railroading dungeonmasters

    Well I guess it depends. How I start a campaign is I develop a homebrew world, very bare bones, a skeleton. So the players backgrounds actually help flesh it out. It takes it from MY world and makes it OUR world. It helps make it feel more alive and real. And my players are going to be way more...

    Pathfinder 2E Is It Time for PF2 "Essentials"?

    Oh sure! Making stuff for multiple products is a wise decision just in general, I would feel. Diversity, once again, is good!

    Pathfinder 2E Is It Time for PF2 "Essentials"?

    I mean, thats okay! It is okay to like different things. but like...yeah, 5e is easier for you and better for you. So yay! You have it! It exists and you can play it right now and get all sorts of support and stuff :) Pf2 doesn't need to be 5e. 5e already exists. Diversity is a good thing...

    D&D 5E Players railroading dungeonmasters

    Not only is it expected but I would argue it should be encouraged? Then again, however, I like collective storytelling. I 100% WANT my players to influence the game, to make a mark in the world, hell...to WANT to try and change the world my game is in. It shows interest. I get concerned when...

    Pathfinder 2E Is It Time for PF2 "Essentials"?

    I mean, we get it. Ya'll didn't like 4e. Cool, but I dunno I think 10 years is enough time for those wounds to heal? I don't wanna play pf1, 3.5e, 5e. I don't like those systems. A lot of these suggestions you all have put out scream 'Well, I like the way this other system does X better' and...

    D&D 5E Players railroading dungeonmasters

    Yeah I have 0 problem if a player corrects a mistake I made. "Hey, I thought you said that the evil cult was after the macguffin and that impersonating the governor was just one step? Why aren't they going after it now?" It is helpful to keep me on the right course, correct me if I've forgotten...

    D&D 5E Players railroading dungeonmasters

    Yeah I watched the video, it's arguing against a problem that only exists with problem players. I LIKE when players give me interesting backgrounds. I dont mind if its not lengthy, a paragraph or two is fine, but it is also 100% okay to give me 10 pages of a backstory if thats what they wanna...

    D&D General Nobody likes an edition warrior.

    Nobody may like them, but there is definitely an ability for edition warring to have actual real world effects on the hobby. You just gotta get a big enough following and you can control the narrative and that'll influence decisions made by companies. Individually, you may change 0 minds, but...

    D&D General Seeking DM Advice: Managing Extroverted Players

    As a mic hog by nature, someone who loves to ham it up and get into the scene, one thing that helps ME tone it down is to have someone politely take me aside out of game and tell me 'Hey, you are being a mic hog, tone it down a smidge'. Don't let the first time you have this discussion ever be...

    D&D Movie/TV Hugh Grant To Play Villain in the D&D Movie

    So I am confused: What would make a movie based on 5E different from one based on, say, 2E, OSR, or 4E? I would be leery of a movie trying to tie itself not just to D&D but to a particular ruleset of D&D. It will add nothing to the movie to make some reference to bounded accuracy vs adeu...

    TSR Running list of potential problematic issues in TSR era DnD

    Well, this assumes that the experience of people who have similar identities are the same. Which, well, as you say: It is ludacris. The idea that every cishet male received the same privileges as every other one is manifestly untrue, just as untrue as assuming every person who identifies with a...

    D&D General What role do the planes play in your games?

    I have used other dimensions, but never have I used the planes-as-written. Other dimensions or planes of existence in my campaigns have always been, if I use them, either places the party gets cast off too and the adventure is 'how to get back' or I put a macguffin in one they have to go into...

    D&D Movie/TV Hugh Grant To Play Villain in the D&D Movie

    I can't recall a single movie I have ever gone to see just because X actor/actress was in it. Maybe my movie going habits are not normal, however. /shrug!

    D&D 5E Hunting Time:Humans

    Good or evil as a culture? The lack of ability (I assume from what you write it is ability rather than desire) to communicate seems to suggest they are sufficiently alien to Humans that good and evil are meaningless terms to use with them. Either way, they sound like a threat that the...
