    Pathfinder 2E The Golarion Role Playing Game

    I like that Golarion is infused into the Pathfinder 2nd Edition rulebooks. Although I have been using PF1 as the core rules for my homebrew since shortly after PF was released, I haven't been playing in Golarion. Now, from the little bit of it that I've seen in the PF2 Core Rulebook and...

    Pathfinder 1E Balancing Iterative Attacks Against an Alternative

    One of the things I like about The Starfinder Roleplaying Game is that anyone can make two attacks at -4/-4 instead of their normal attack bonus for a single attack. Our group added that rule to our house rules for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, this past weekend and it worked great...

    Unearthed Arcana WotC's Mearls Presents A New XP System For 5E In August's Unearthed Arcana

    I like some of the ideas. It seems to have some simularties with the XP system used in Dungeon Crawl Classics... Different math, but similar feel, while expanding guidelines for the other two pillars of play... Overall, food for thought and I'll probably adopt some of the ideas, but not...

    Starfinder Starfinder Preview Looks At The Mystic Class

    Looks interesting, to me. I was on the fence about Starfinder, but it now has my interest. I think I'm really looking forward to learning the story elements behind it.

    D&D 6E Mike Mearls “…it’s now obvious how to live without Bonus Actions”' And 6th Edition When Players Ask

    I'm torn between playing 5E with a bunch of stuff from prior editions (except 4th, which I don't own) or playing PF/3x and importing what I want from 5E and pre-3E. I really think 5E is winning the fight, in my mind at this moment. 6E would have to be practically perfect for me to consider it...

    D&D 5E Attunement & New or Converted Items

    When creating homebrewed magic items or converting items from other editions, what are the factors that should determine whether or not the item should or should not require attunement?

    Pathfinder 1E Pathfinder Feats that 5e Gives Characters for Free

    Hi, everyone. I'm considering converting a few of the 5E classes to Pathfinder for a particular set of adventures that use the Pathfinder ruleset. After being on a 5E kick for a while, I'm feeling the draw to return to Pathfinder for the crunch. However, 5E seems to give characters things for...

    D&D 5E An Odd Mechanic: DM & Player BOTH Roll

    A while back, I read an article about skill checks (stealth, investigation, ect...) where the player shouldn't be certain of the result, but I cannot remember where I saw the article. Basically, it suggested that both the DM and the player would roll for the character, but only the DM knew...

    AD&D/O.S.R.I.C: Creating XP Progression for Homebrewed Classes

    Hi, everyone. When creating a homebrewed class for AD&D or OSRIC (or converting a class version from a later edition to 1E), what is the best and most proper method of coming up with the right Experience Point progression for the class? Thank you.

    D&D 5E Beyond 20th Level: Proficiency Bonuses

    Hello, everyone, I'm working on some homebrewed variant classes based on 1st edition for my 5th edtion game. One of the old 1E classes, in particular, the Druid has class features that are gained above 20th level (based on Unearthed Arcana). Also, there are beings in Deities & Demigods (or...

    D&D 5E Drawbacks to Increasing Monster AC Across the Board?

    So, our group recently got to play several sessions of D&D 5E over the past few weekends. More than we've gotten to play consistently in quite some time, so that is good. Lots of fun. However, one of the players has noted that it's very easy to hit the monsters. It seems a lot easier than...

    D&D 5E Feat at 1st Level: How To Go About It?

    Hello, everyone. I'm considering giving all the characters the option of having a feat at first level. At first, I'd considered just letting all the characters have a feat for free. But, then I thought that I really didn't want to force all the players to pick a feat (as some wouldn't want...

    D&D 5E Differently Sized Monks & Martial Arts Damage

    Do monks of sizes other than medium do different damage? If so, where do I find the different damages based upon size? Does it work like weapon dice damage for monsters of different sizes?

    D&D 5E Non-Lethal Damage in 5E?

    Am I correct that there isn't any such thing as non-lethal damage in 5E?

    D&D 5E Drow Magic & Proficiency Bonus

    From the Player's Handbook, I'm having difficulty determining whether a drow applies her proficiency bonus to any spell save difficulty checks. :confused::confused: Checking the Monster Manual doesn't seem to help, either (since the drow in the MM don't follow the same rules as PCs), but the...

    D&D 5E Keen Weapons in 5th Edition?

    Hi, everyone. Although I've had the 5E DMG for a few weeks, now, I haven't had an opportunity to really dig into it, yet. Did any magical weapons with the keen property make it into 5th edition? Something like the old 3X/PF keen weapons that score criticals on double the normal range or, at...

    D&D 3E/3.5 5E Feats Compared to 3E Feats

    (Ignoring the differences in the underlying math in both systems...) Is it fair to say that one 5E Feat is worth about the same as three PF/3X Feats?

    D&D 5E Six Casters Casting Enhance Ability on Same Target Creature?

    The 2nd level spell, enhance ability, has six variations (one benefitting each ability score). Would you, as a DM, allow all six variations to affect a single target creature at the same time (assuming six casters maintaining concentration for the duration)? Or, would you rule that the...
