    OD&D Since we have all those threads about old editions- Moldvay/Cook.

    Yes, I suck at thread titles... Anyhow, since I was reminded of it, I thought I'd read through the old Basic and Expert rulebooks. Which gave me an idea or two. It got me thinking about our old house rules, and how I'd approach it a bit differently if that game were to come out now...

    D&D 5E Request for clarification: Undead Fortitude

    I'm wondering two things about this ability for Zombies: 1. does this apply just when a zombie is dropped to exactly 0 hp- or for any attack that drops it below 0? 2. do I roll that saving throw every time it hits 0 hp, or just the first time? I'm wondering, because I fought some Ash...

    D&D General Random questions thread!

    Anyone care to explain WHY Mayonnaise of all things is available in the 5E PHB's equipment section??? And in bulk, too. Is it to help that fillet of Displacer Beast slide down your gullet better? How about you guys? Any oddballs you always wondered about?

    D&D General Collecting older version material.

    I was going through my shelves of classic D&D material, looking for something interesting to read. Prompted by all the discussion here about 1E/2E etc. I have stuff from way back when I first began I'd forgotten all about! Inc characters on the old green D&D sheets, the old AD&D yellow...

    D&D 5E 5E boxed sets.

    What's everyone's take on these? I have a buddy who is, shall we say, pocket money deprived. He wants to get into this version of the game I keep talking up, but buying the core books isn't in the cards, money-wise atm. Plus, he saw them for sale at Wal-Fart, and really liked the artwork...

    D&D 5E Holy Ham Hocks, Batman!!!

    I was just on E-bay, looking to see what D&D stuff I could find, and couldn't help but notice: THE PRICES!!! Copies of the newer 5E books were utterly, obscenely expensive! Like $200-400 expensive!! WTF,O???? These are brand new books, Like Tasha's. Do they really cost that much in...

    D&D 2E Now I have the hankering to play a 2E game...

    After reading through- and posting in- the which Edition thread, and having a look through my old rulebooks I now want to play a 2nd edition game... If for no other reason than because I like the 2E monsters so much, lol. I found today, that I have 2 big binders full of Monster Compendium...

    D&D 5E Monster creation help wanted.

    I'm currently trying out the 5E Monster creation rules. My first monster will be a Gnoll Shaman. It went pretty well, so far- the tutorial in the DMG is pretty straitforward. However, I'm kinda torn on WHAT kind of spell caster it should be. My first thought was Cleric, as the...

    D&D 5E Into the Borderlands.

    Since my first thread detailing my introduction to 5E got completely derailed by side conversations- then fell off the front page, I figured I'd post a new thread for the follow up stuff. I'm playtesting a party of 4 adventurers: Bob, Fighter 4; Gary, Wizard (abjurer) 3; Paddy, Cleric of...

    D&D 5E Definitions, please! What are Bounded Accuracy and RAW?

    What in the name of Fizban's hairy buttocks is bounded accuracy??? I keep seeing the term, but have no idea what it means. A search turned up about 1000 more mentions of it than I cared to wade through, and that's ALL they were: mentions. Likewise the heck is RAW? Thanks in advance to...

    D&D 5E 5th ed D&D general impressions from a new player and DM.

    Preface: I began my D&D journey way back in the early 1980s with the B/X boxed sets. Probably 12 or 13 at the time. The ones that came with Keep on the Borderlands/ Isle of Dread; light blue plastic dice, with numbers you had to fill in with crayon; a rulebook, and some order forms and...

    D&D 5E Leveling up monsters/monster templates.

    Are there rules for doing this for 5th ed? I looked all through the DMG and MM, and found nothing. It was one of my favorite things about 3rd ed- the ability to scale up common monsters with your party. Things like Orc shamans, etc. I even perused WoTC's D&D website to see if they'd...
