    What if cure spells had side effects?

    Often, we see discussions of healing being too prevalent, with wands of cure light wounds causing eye rolling behavior in some people. What if it had bad side effects? I imagine magical healing feels good, and it would have to alleviate pain. The euphoria that caused could easily translate to a...

    [OSR] What seperates the untrained from the expert?

    Is there a good rule of thumb one would use when determining what sorts of tasks someone untrained in a non-combat skill would be able to do versus someone with knowledge in that area? Like, I would expect anyone to be able to possibly spot a pit trap made by a couple of ogres, but only an...

    Certain types of inter-party conflict don't make any sense

    I think we've all had games derailed because a player decided they were going to stick to their guns no matter what, be it a free-wheeling agent of chaos who just has to attack an NPC during a conversation with them, or a paladin who views their religious devotion as a computer program rather...

     Hooks for troublesome monsters

    Adventure hooks, that is! Everyone has some monsters they just don't get, or don't find inspiring. This thread is for people to post their problem monsters, explain why the monster doesn't spark for them, and get hooks from other posters. I'll start. The bulette (with a cute drawing by me)...

    Live broadcast about D&D and therapy! (May 20, 2018)

    Okay people, this Sunday on Ask Rev Ellyn we are going to be talking about D&D and therapy - how it can be applied, theories on how it helps the mind, and some of the affects it has on players (good stuff!). So let's roll for initiative, grab your D20s and join us for a night of interviews and...

    5e Unearthed Arcana: Centaurs and Minotaurs

    http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/unearthed-arcana/centaurs-and-minotaurs Gotta say, 5e is getting in touch with its 4e side on this one! The "it's medium but just large enough to act like a large creature" thing is so 4e. Not complaining, though. It works!

    Who likes the six saves of 5e?

    I think 5e is a good game, very playable, and I find almost all my annoyances coming from edge cases. There is, however, one that looms front and center that just bothers the heck out of me, and that is the division of the saves. What are strength, intelligence, and charisma saves even supposed...

    I sculpted a githyanki.

    Thought people here might think this was cool. Needed some githyanki for my game and couldn't find a miniature that I loved, so I sculpted one. https://plus.google.com/101283146032152086304/posts/LSJgX65Zitx

    (4e) I find the original classes hard to deal with now.

    Just a story: as someone with ADHD (pretty severely), making a D&D character was always pretty arduous for me. I loved the 4e tactical combat but really had a hard time managing resources and using more complicated powers to make things happen. The ability to just pick a build and go is very...

    [4e+]The Red Box solo adventure was super fun

    There were some pretty horrible errors in the adventure (even beyond the rules flubs there were some typesetting errors in the fighter path, which is the only one I have played, that made it hard to know what was going on) but the whole thing made me feel like a small child again. I remember...

    (Civ 5) Strategic view

    Strategic view: http://www.civilization5.com/#/community/feature_strategic_view As one of those people that always turns the graphics and sounds down so I can play faster, I hope you can play the game entirely in this mode.

    Did anyone see Gabe talking about S&W on Penny Arcade?

    http://www.penny-arcade.com/2010/4/7/odd/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+pa-mainsite+(Penny+Arcade) Gabe talks about doing a Swords & Wizardry game with elements from OD&D. For someone who just got started with 4e he really seems to appreciate his RPG history!

    I think Sound & Vision needs to be closed

    Creating the Sound & Vision forum was done at my suggestion but I don't think it's worked out. Less than one post a month is not enough to keep the forum going even by the standards of the My Forums area. Seems that RPGnet didn't really need something like that.

    Is there a list of D&D Insider adventures by level?

    I really want to start using more D&D insider stuff (after a very successful run with the first Chaos Scar adventure) but I'm really finding it hard to navigate. Has someone set up a list of the adventures by level somewhere? Thanks!

    The Swarm Druid is About Turning into Bugs

    http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/4ex/20090928 and I think I like it. It really punches up the controllery side of the beast form with that at-will. I say good.

    Dungeon magazine and a cool new adventure path concept

    This editorial: http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/dued/2009September has the following: This is almost sandbox-y in concept. I really like it and am looking forward to it! I find that some of the official D&D adventures are more elaborate than I prefer and seeing them do something...

    DMG2: Rules for removing magic items

    At the bottom of this article: http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/4pr/20090803 I've been wanting some cool rules I can replace the magic item rules with if I want. The article also mentions companion rules and rules for tweaking character levels on the fly. Very cool!

    Mentzer D&D question

    I am reading my copy of the Mentzer D&D Basic Set; in the monster sections, it gives "damage as a range" as it says. I assumed this meant a die roll. However, some of the ranges are 2-8 (and also 2-12, another popular one). Am I supposed to just roll a d8 and re-roll ones? Makes ones twos? Just...
