    Which gods for a "good" Fallen Aasimar?

    Hi, I am playing a Fallen Aasimar that was captured by some evil faction (like drow - don't know yet). Touched by a god they felt the presence and decided to take advantage of it. They tortured and brainwashed him until his pure soul became a picture of misery. Many years have passed and he...

    Questions about creating a Drow DEX-Paladin. Any suggestions/recommendations?

    Hi! First things first: We are starting a new campaign soon. Because our DM wants some more interesting RP interactions for the new adventure, I had the idea playing a Drow Paladin. Guess, a Drow in the party will spice adventuring up for sure. ;-) I know I have to find some workarounds for...

    D&D 5E Disarming a caster's component pouch to prevent him from casting spells

    Hi, the optional rule for Disarming says: Usually a caster uses a component pouch (at least in our games). So, would you allow e.g. a ranged attacker to target the component pouch of a caster to shoot it off his grasp, then pick it up himself to prevent the caster from further spells? Kind...

    D&D 5E Xanathar's Guide: How does identifying a spell + Counterspell work?

    Hi, Xanathar's Guide says: That means, that it is not possible to anticipate a spell without using either your reaction or action. So, how can you ever specifically Counterspell using your reaction, if you already need your reaction to identify the spell? Seems like Counterspell is only...

    D&D 5E Ranged attacks from behind a corner/an object

    Hey there, I know there have been some discussions about that topic, but I couldn't find a clear answer. The rules intend that ranged attacks while hidden seem to be possible. Otherwise there wouldn't be feats like Skulker concerning this. Furthermore you wouldn't get Advantage while being...

    D&D 5E Forget about the treasure and pricing system of 5E!

    Hey there, we are currently at the very end of the campaign "Princes of the Apocalypse". Our characters are level 13 and we have dozens of thousands of gold, but we don't know on what to spend our money. The treasure system is broken. Prices are even more broken. Gold is worth nothing, if you...

    D&D 5E Disamring in 5E

    Hey, just wanted to ask, if there are some new mechanics or statements according to the Disarming rules in 5E. I haven't found some, so it seems like there's still the problem that any opponent can pickup its weapon as a free action. Who is using disarming attacks? Have you found them...

    D&D 5E How do I build an interesting climbing challenge/encounter? Tipps please!

    Hey guys, so, here is the situation: In my next adventure the characters need to travel to an old shrine. Therefore, I want to make the travelling a bit more interesting than it normally is.

    D&D 5E Spell -> Counterspell -> Counterspell (from same character that casts 1st spell) - possible?

    Hey, okay, so here we go: NPC: Casts a spell as an action. Character: Casts Counterspell as a reaction. NPC: Casts Counterspell as a reaction. Let's have a look at the PHB: Page 202: "You can't cast another spell during the same turn, except for a cantrip." So, whether casting a...

    D&D 5E Perception vs. Investigation in UA Traps Revisited - A problem again?!

    Hey all, there were times, where a lot of players had problems to differ between Perception and Investigation (maybe some people still do). But after some time it was quite clear: Perception means noticing things (through senses like spotting, hearing, tasting, etc.) while Investigation means...

    Alignment of factions? Which one fits my character?

    Hi, I am playing a rogue (chaotic/good). At the moment I am involved with the Zhentarim, because of opportunistic reasons. But I have a problem with their beliefs and alignment (evil). I hate nobles and I want to kill one of the Council of Six (Lady Zharrn Ophal), because she murdered my...

    D&D 5E How does the Phantasmal Force spell work correctly?

    EDIT: The following is a personal summary of this forum thread: Please note, that I don't claim this to be the only way of interpreting the rules. Phantasmal Force is very vague and this thread was a try to find an interpretation that is consistent with the wording of the RAW and that is...

    D&D 5E Arcane Trickster - What spells are good with Magical Ambush?

    Hey, I am playing a Rogue (Arcane Trickster). So far, I relied on spells without a saving throw (like Minor Illusion, Silent Image, Mirror Image, etc.). Now I hit level 9 and get "Magical Ambush" that gives creatures disadvantage on their saving throws against my spells (if I cast them while...

    D&D 5E Mounted Tavel Pace

    Hey, the rules about unmounted traveling are very clear (PHB 181). But I have two questions concerning mounted traveling: The rules state that you can gallop for an hour. How many times can you do so per day? How long does a mount have a travel at normal pace to gallop again? The rules say...
