    D&D 5E Unarmored Defense as a Feat?

    So, say this feat existed, is it too good? Unarmored Defense Choose an ability other than Dexterity. When not wearing armor and not using a shield, your AC is equal to 10 + Dexterity modifier + the chosen ability modifier.

    D&D 5E How do you create your encounters?

    DMs and adventure writers, when you've got to make a combat encounter, what is your process to do so? If you've used different tools, which do you find most helpful?

    D&D 5E Playing DnD online

    So, with social distancing becoming the new norm for a bit, I thought I'd ask about playing DnD online. I'm learning Roll20 with the goal of starting up some games shortly, but I have some questions to those that have done this before: What programs do people use? How does it differ from...

    Smash Up: Best expansions?

    I've become a fan of Smash Up, so I'm going to be getting my own copy of the game. And while I will probably get most of the expansions eventually ... I want to start with just one. So, which one would people recommend? I've played with Awesome Level 9000, so I'm tempted to get one of the other...

    D&D 4E Abstracting Wealth in 4e: good idea or bad idea?

    I've been looking at other game systems and a lot of them use abstract systems to record a characters wealth, not an official number of gp. And this seems to be quite advantageous in some respects. You're not counting coppers and silvers, it puts more control in the hands of the GM and helps you...

    Success, Failure and the D20

    Between the recent playtest article with new Expertise feats for weapon and implement users, and my own experiences running DnD 4e, I was wondering about success and failure and the d20 ... or, ignoring editions, ignoring level of optimization (and how much you can optimize) ... what should you...

    What does the Artificer, Seeker and Runepriest need?

    As the classes that are pointed to for not having much support, I'm curious what can be done with them to bring them up to par. Obviously, more stuff: feats and powers, maybe new build options and paragon paths. But, specifically, when you are building an Artificer, Runepriest or Seeker, what's...

    The Return of Unearthed Arcana!

    Dungeons & Dragons Roleplaying Game Official Home Page - Article (Unearthing "Unearthed Arcana") This has me so stoked. This material won't be put into the Compendium or Character Builder, but I love the idea of some neat options. Tomorrow marks the first of these articles with disease-like...

    Adventure Poster Maps: Which adventure has the best/most flexible poster maps?

    While I enjoy and use Dungeon Tiles, when it comes to quick, nice-looking setups, I find I'm frequently pulling out the Fantastic Location poster maps, I own Fields of Ruin, City of Peril and Dragondown Grotto, plus the 4e mini starter maps. I frequently find these maps quicker to use and offer...

    Can a stance be maintained when knocked unconscious?

    The fighter in my campaign had activated Boundless Endurance (Level 2 utility stance), and was knocked into negatives. He insisted that his stance was still in effect when the Warlord healed him back to consciousness. This led to a bit of an argument that brought the encounter to a bit of a...
