    D&D General me finally making the big monk discussion thread

    I can't help but wonder if any of the complainers mentioning the lack of flexibility have played a monk. A frequent complaint in previous threads that for almost any "task", you could come up with an example that "did it better than the monk". A barbarian certainly tanks better than a monk. a...

    D&D General me finally making the big monk discussion thread

    I've said it before and I'll say it again 1: The monk CAN be reflavored. I made a Kensei Monk but he's not some shaolin martial artist. He's an elf. Almost everything he does can be explained by "elfiness". Super fun to play too. 2: The monk is not weak. Said elf is wrecking.

    D&D 5E Could Theros and Tasha's Cauldron the way they're going to handle real-world pantheons?

    In my Yoon Suin campaign, there were hundreds of gods, the majority of them undetailed, and with a fair amount of overlap. This turned out to be a remarkably easy way of doing it, because I didn't have to worry about "consistency" anymore. Some of the gods were very strange... but they...

    D&D 5E What if a curse isn't a curse?

    intriguing hook. However, a curse is not a curse. A curse is a ... class. https://slugsandsilver.blogspot.com/2019/07/curse-as-class-contest-ogre.html

    D&D 5E Could Theros and Tasha's Cauldron the way they're going to handle real-world pantheons?

    One thing I would say about "dubious interpretations"... is that a lot of these old pantheons were very... fluid. I ran a game where I needed an Egyptian pantheon, and I wanted it to be accurate... only to find out that there are several versions and permutation. I ended up settling on one...

    D&D 5E Players Killing Players for stupid reason

    This thread is over 5 years old, and I hope seriously that someone has pointed out by now that killing PLAYERS is MURDER. Don't kill your players. Probably don't kill your PCs, but that won't land you in jail at least. Given the importance of this key piece of knowledge, it may be worth...

    Thank you everyone :)

    D&D General African settings

    Hello A friend of mine was very impressed with the Wagadu setting that is currently under work. She wondered however if there were any others, either published or in the works? cheers,

    D&D General trying to come up with a decent setting idea.

    If we are going post apocalyptic, then I am obligated to mention the sublime UVG: Ultraviolet Grasslands https://www.exaltedfuneral.com/products/the-ultra-violet-grasslands-and-the-black-city It is one heck of a setting.

    D&D General trying to come up with a decent setting idea.

    Integrate the monk? that one is easy. I decided for my first "live" (not pbp) 5e character that I wanted to play a classic - I wanted a legolas like character. Fast, great archer, handy in close combat, good with nature, stealthy... ranger right? Well... maybe. But how about ... monk...

    D&D 5E Zard's Post Tasha's Archetype Tier List

    Same here - one could say this improves the GISH potential of the battlesmith.

    D&D 5E Zard's Post Tasha's Archetype Tier List

    a support character may choose to buff someone else instead of themselves, therefore "making themselves weaker". It could be an infusion or a bless spell. I'm not sure your argument is solid...

    D&D 5E Zard's Post Tasha's Archetype Tier List

    If you gave the homunculus "for free" to the alchemist as a buff, do you think that would be sufficient to balance the class?

    D&D 5E Zard's Post Tasha's Archetype Tier List

    The area temp hp of the turret is... quite weak compared to the twilight cleric's temp HP aura.

    D&D 5E D&D Up 35% In 2020 While Virtual Play Rises 86%

    I had to stop a campaign - I was running a UVG game, and it requires a lot of player investment, that my players weren't up to doing because of the remote playing, the stress of the pandemic. So instead I'm running a more casual GLOG mercenary game, and it's going well.

    D&D 5E Zard's Post Tasha's Archetype Tier List

    It really bothers me that the alchemist is so limited, because it's by far the most "medieval" artificer, i.e. it's the subclass that fits the best with a number of D&D setting (some of the others may be too "high tech"). Can it be rescued?

    D&D 5E Zard's S Tier Archetypes

    The tier analysis in 3.x/pathfinder was over a very broad swath of power. The difference between an optimised tier 1 character and a poorly designed tier 5 character was immense. Literally BMX Bandit vs Angel Summoner (if you aren't familiar with the concept, ). In 5e the spread of power is...

    D&D 5E Rogues are Awesome. Is it the Tasha's Effect?

    I don't think so. especially if you consider combat as war. Yes, the rogue will be doing decent damage during the fight. But the rogue can help set up a killer ambush that could turn a deadly fight into an easy one.... that's worth way more than a few more HP of damage.

    D&D 5E Rogues are Awesome. Is it the Tasha's Effect?

    I think that the AT is still "king of the rogues", power and utility wise...

    D&D 5E Rogues are Awesome. Is it the Tasha's Effect?

    I'm in agreement here too. I did that a few times as a rogue (thief) to relieve pressure from the tank.
