None, but use some of the optional rules from the DMG.
Well, there are fewer "goblin champions" and more conversions of old monsters and homebrewed new ones that I've updated from every edition to 5e. You want a tarantella (BECMI), transposer (1e), fremlin (2e), destrachan (3e), or chillfire destroyer (4e) for your 5e game? I've got you covered. You want old stuff from Arduin? Yeah, some of that too. And so forth.I voted only 1-5 pages based on thinking it was just rules, but then @the Jester referenced making spells and monsters as house rules made me think if they actually are for this. I'm not sure if I take a basic goblin and make a goblin champion if I would call it a houserule. I guess it is a homebrew.
You wouldn't need to read anything, you could go straight from the book (with a "no Drow" clause stuck on). All that stuff is extras.My idea of reading the OP is if a player came to my table, would they be able to play if they only played by the book, or would they need to read lots of changes to fit in.
What does this mean? It seems to me to contradict itself. Does 3PP material get counted or doesn't it?I am not counting 3PP material, so please do include that in your vote.
That's actually a really good way to think of the question. Based on that, I think if a player unfamiliar with my house rules came to my game table to play, they could jump in with the most complex house rules being in regards to vitality points rather than using death saves, changes to exhaustion, use of action points based on 3.5 Eberron, and some slight differences in character creation (namely Stat bonuses being based on class and background choice rather than race). There may be others I'm forgetting but those are the main ones.My idea of reading the OP is if a player came to my table, would they be able to play if they only played by the book, or would they need to read lots of changes to fit in.
Same. My answer is only about house rules. I have an uncountable amount of home-brewed monsters that I use. Completely home-brew setting with home-brew gods.Was this thread always about home-brew as well because I thought it was just house rules. I put down 1-5 pages of house rules but I've no idea how many spells, items, races, and subclasses I've created. I also have a few home-brewed or updated monsters as well as templates for them and some somewhat easy mass combat rules. It's kind of scattered though, so hard to figure out.
It was a word omission, known as a mistake , when I edited the OP. Sorry for the confusion!What does this mean? It seems to me to contradict itself. Does 3PP material get counted or doesn't it?
To me, I have lots and lots of homebrew. Lots of custom NPCs, items, spells, etc. But I don't consider any of that rules changes. No custom races, or classes, though unless I changed how current things are written, I don't know if I would count that as rules changes, just setting information.

It is right in the title of the thread and in the poll question and in the OP.My answer is only about house rules.
So, I don't know what I could have said to make it clearer.to what extent other groups use house-rules or homebrew content consistently in their games?
This I can totally appreciate. If you wish to update your vote, just use your best judgement and thanks!It's kind of scattered though, so hard to figure out.
