    D&D 5E Above VTT and D&D Beyond

    I use Beyond 20 with Foundry. Frankly, though, Foundry is way overkill for what I need most of the time. It's great for people that really want all the options and added functionality, but I just want something simple.

    D&D 5E Above VTT and D&D Beyond

    I thought I'd mention this for those that are interested in VTTs. This is actually a Chrome extension (free). With it, as GM, you get a button on your campaign page in D&D Beyond to open a VTT. It has full access to the character sheets, D&D Beyond dice roller, etc. It has the basics, fog...

    D&D 5E How much for a Wand of Sleep?

    Thanks. I'll take a look at the XGE reference.

    D&D 5E How much for a Wand of Sleep?

    I didn't want to spend a lot of time on it. They're rather desperately trying to find out why someone is trying to kill them (or one of them, at least), and I don't want to throw a wrench into the momentum. The person attacking them (and her henchmen) made a tactical error leading to their...

    D&D 5E How much for a Wand of Sleep?

    That works out well. I decided on 500 gp at the moment based on what little I could find. That allows the buyer to re-sell for a profit. Regardless of the intentions in 5e, there's no way something like that wouldn't be bought and sold, so guidelines would really be helpful. It actually gives...

    D&D 5E How much for a Wand of Sleep?

    My players came across a Wand of Sleep (6 charges). They need the money and would like to sell it. Is there any guideline on how much they might get for this?

    D&D 5E Primal Order for 5e?

    Thanks, I'll take a look!

    D&D 5E Primal Order for 5e?

    Just curious. I really enjoyed Wizard of the Coast's 'Primal Order' books waaay back before they owned D&D, and even before M:tG. (I have a particular grudge against M:tG because it's success caused WotC to drop the Primal Order line.) Has anyone updated The Primal Order for 5e? I'd love to...

    D&D 5E Give me your strongest characters

    The strongest character I ever had was absolutely insane. But he was a Palladium character, not D&D. Saved the character though, just to pull out and gape at from time to time. (I'll say this, as ridiculous as this character was, he still fit the campaign, the other PCs were comparable, and the...

    D&D 5E What are your D&D buying habits?

    Well, I only buy the D&D Beyond versions. I bought the core books, and then only the occasional campaign or setting as needed or as they catch my interest. More often individual classes, races, or backgrounds. I didn't vote as I don't see a good way to reflect this.

    D&D 5E Fantasy Appalachia

    I mentioned Old Gods of Appalachia earlier...here's a 9 minute prologue.

    D&D 5E DnDBeyond huge Cyber Monday Sales growth

    I picked up the 6 core books for D&D Beyond using that sale and also bought a license for Foundry VTT which was also on sale. Glad to know I contributed...:D I believe if you own the books on D&D Beyond, there's a way to access them in Foundry without having to re-purchase them.

    D&D 5E Fantasy Appalachia

    Just wanted to second the podcast: The Old Gods of Appalachia Great for ideas.

    D&D 5E What is up with the popularity of watching other D&D groups play the game?

    My games are similar. Combat usually happens if something goes wrong, or if not, it happens when the players have arranged a strong tactical advantage and it goes pretty quickly. It's more exploration, investigation, and roleplay.

    D&D 5E What is up with the popularity of watching other D&D groups play the game?

    Several reasons. Sometimes I'll watch them to see how a game that I'm not familiar with runs during actual play and to get a feel for the mechanics. Sometimes it's to watch the GM and see how he handles different situations to see if I can learn something. (I've GMed for over 30 years, but I...

    D&D 5E Most Humiliating Way To Go

    As a player. AD&D (1e). My mage character was taken to zero hit points by a giant ant. The group won the fight and proceeded on their way. That night they asked what watch my character was taking. I just looked at the DM, who said, "He's, um, not there." They finally figured out what had...

    D&D General Are you a DM?

    Not a straightforward answer. I DMed AD&D back in the early '80s. Since then I've primarily GMed a number of games and groups over the years. I'll be DMing again in the near future for the first time in decades...but I've GMed other games a lot.

    D&D 5E Should the Hexblade Patron be Banned?

    I'll just say that I never hear anyone reference 3.0. I hear AD&D, 2nd edition, 3.5, 4, and 5.

    D&D 5E How do OAs trigger when an enemy has multiple reaches?

    Thanks, that was my assumption, but I wasn't following some of the explanations..

    D&D 5E How do OAs trigger when an enemy has multiple reaches?

    I'm not sure I'm following correctly. So, if you're within 5' of a dragon and try to withdraw totally...are you saying the dragon gets 3 OAs? Or that he gets to pick any OA?
