    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...

    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...

    D&D 5E Falchion & Finesse?

    If you were importing the falchion to DnD 5E, would you give it the finesse property? Why? Or, why not? Thank you.

    Shields (Light, Heavy, and Tower) from PF to 5E

    In looking at D&D 5E Basic (still waiting for my PHB to arrive), I only see one shield listed. However, I'm wondering which shield of those in PF that shield represents. It's listed as weighing six pounds, which puts it closer to the weight of the PF Light Wooden and Light Steel Shields...

    3.5E to 5E Warlock Eldritch Blast Damage Type?

    First, thank you for reading. Second, my apologies, as I won't receive my copy of the 5E D&D Player's Handbook until the end of the month. I'm working on converting some 3.5 and PF classes to 5E for our long-running campaign. We started in 3.5 rules and then converted to PF. Now, we're...

    Novels about Megadungeon Exploration

    B-) Are there any good novels about a person or group exploring a megadungeon? Or, just about dungeon exporation? I'm primarily interested in novels about the subject. Thanks.

    Rules for Digging out a Dungeon

    My players have recently gained control of a hotel (in game) and want to dig out a secret area below the hotel. Where is the best place to look for rules that can be used as a guide to how long this will take, what feats/skills might be useful, and what it will cost? I'm also interested in...
