How well does your party actually work together, /5eg/? Do you listen to each other and help each other out even when not asked directly, or is it every man for himself until someone gets knocked unconscious? For example, when was the last time the Barbarian stopped what he was doing and grappled something so that the squishy caster could get away? Have you ever seen a Wizard cast Darkness on a Rogue, knowing he had Blindsight? It's a team game, so how good is your team?

How do I play an Oath of Devotion Paladin that isn't obnoxious?

Was going to play an Oath of Vengeance Paladin, but fucking Shield Master looks like a blast, and I haven't played a walking mass of 'try and hit me' in a long fucking time. I can't help but feel like Paladin's should usually be SnB anyway.

Not to mention my DM likes to throw a lot of of hard hitting shit at us, so the extra AC would be welcome.

Would it be retarded to do a subclass for monk that has a stance? Like, he can enter it as a free action, but he can maintain it only for a limited amount of rounds, because it is strenuous.

Ok lad here's what you do, lead by example. That's it, don't try and brow beat the rest of the party into being like you, don't try and convert them to the word of Pelor(if your going the follow a god angle) unless they ask you to, don't try and smite other players because they do something you disagree with. Do try to come to compromise with them on disagreements that don't completely undermine your values, try to show them a better way instead of just preaching at them, always remember that if they don't wish to put their lives on the line for innocents that is there decision but this is where you stand and perish if need be. If the dick ass thief wants more of a reward that you can see would hurt the payer, simply offer to make up the difference to them as you can, edgelord of the party decides it's best to torture a captive simply intervene and try talking it over instead.

Above all be kind, be strong, be good.

Figured ol' Joe would be an Oath of Conquest Paladin.

As much fun as that subclass looks, the story for this character doesn't really lend itself to the nature-theme of the OotA Paladin. Not to mention we already have a Druid and a Ranger.

I wish I would've decided on a subclass earlier and built this story around a nature theme, but as it stands now he's a noble's son who left his title and struck out on his own, eventually joining an order warriors/knights.

Personally I would be curious to hear what rules you find people ALWAYS get wrong, or your table always seems to get wrong.

I'm in my second group now that seems to think that Sneak Attack automatically gives Rogues Advantage if they're eligible to sneak attack (..which would mean it loops back on itself; advantage lets you sneak attack which gives you advantage). No one seems to be able to read it 'You have to have advantage OR fulfill these other criteria'.

But I don't want to rules lawyer and step on the rogues fun, after the first groups rogue got really pissy.

Free actions aren't really a thing in 5e. Limited rounds thing seems weird to me. Ki already covers a lot of that. I posted a .pdf of a feat based martial art stance system (that I think is kind of silly) in the other thread ( veekyforums.com/thread/58494601/games
), so check that out. Honestly, it seems like it would be the same issue as battlemaster though - why does one subclass get what ostensibly should be base monk abilities?

I always thought Dredd would be a great Conquest Paladin. But yeah, Devotion doesn't mean you have to be lawful nice.

has he actually read the sneak attack feature?
Once per turn, you can deal an extra 1d6 damage to one creature you hit with an attack if you have advantage on the attack roll.
You don't need advantage on the attack roll if another enemy of the target is within 5 feet of it, that enemy isn't incapacitated, and you don't have disadvantage on the attack roll.

Garbage Can Lid
Garbage Can Lid

Basically because its a skirmisher class to some degree. They work best in specific situations that don't necessarily white room super well, and one of their subclasses is the worst trap option in the game.

I don't mind critical fails/success in skill checks to some point, as long as people realize it doesn't make the impossible happen. If someone wants to fluff out that they just make the task look impossibly easy / skillful, fine. If someone wants to do 'le dwarf flaps its wings and flies', fuck off.

That.. Thats just weirder to me. That's massively misreading the rules, to say the least. I guess on the plus side the rogues can bonus action hide > sneak attack? Though that seems wonky as fuck.

We've tried arguing that sneak attack, mechanically is there so rogues actually do something in combat. The roleplay intepretation could be they do literally sneaky attacks in fights, exploiting distractions. But no he disregards the description and only reads the title. "It's a sneak attack. In combat the participants are actively looking out for their surroundings and their enemies, they can't be sneak attacked in fight if they've seen you".

No rogues in our game any more.

I would like to give a lich a GOOlock-styled background, because forbidden magic secrets are the best kind, but would it be better to just keep them a wizard and give them a few spells along the lines of Hunger of Hadar than bullshitting a way for a warlock to go lich? Their very limited spell selection doesn't really jive well with a lich learning new magic over centuries.

Need_TLC

My mistake. Now that I think about it, it's fucking dumb to play as a Gnoll more than any other monster race, unless of course you're playing a janky ass monster campaign in which the rest of the monsters are helping you slaughter everything in the world.

My group's sessions are usually an hour and a half. It's possible, but honestly it's WAY too short. You generally can't accomplish as much as you'd like and are left wanting more. You may end up spending multiple sessions on single fights, which causes things to slog just a bit.

Officially, Oath of Conquest paladins are not necessarily evil, but they have kind of lost hope that people can fix themselves and the world can become a good and happy place, so they started forcing everyone to follow the rules instead. So they lean LN/LE. Here is a vid that can clarify.

"You or someone else can make a ranged spell attack with one of the pebbles by throwing it or hurling it with a sling."

Your pact weapon is the Sling.

Otherwise you'd only get your charisma the once. You need the spell PLUS hexblade and invocations to get it added all three times.

likme

Very well, most will instantly see conquest as someone out to crush others under their boot. This does not have to be the case though, you believe that the laws help to create order in the lands and through this order good can be done for the benefit of all. When you seek to snuff out hope, it is in the hearts of the wicked who would abuse innocents, always trying to be one step ahead, being relentless in your pursuit and ensuring that not one escapes justice. When you speak of ruling with an iron fist, it is ruling above those who flaunt the law and erode the foundations of society. If a person has broken the law their circumstances do not matter, but above all the punishment will be fair and seek to correct the situation. To you showing strength of community, strength of brotherhood and strength of society is how you execute strength above all. In the long run, you are out to strike fear into the hearts of those who would do evil and deter them before they even begin.

So literally just cast Demiplane and then cast Wish to make a clone on that demiplane? Also Wish doesn't remove the 120 incubation period for the clone, just the hour long cast time.
So just the Clone spell then.

Don't you still have to supply the container for the clone even if you cast wish? Wish disregards material components for the casting of the spell, but once it's cast you kind of need the container to keep your you in.

The basic use of this spell is to duplicate any other spell of 8th level or lower. You don't need to meet any requirements in that spell, including costly components. The spell simply takes effect.
Says nothing about creating the components for you, just ignoring them and making the spell take effect. Creating a container isn't an effect of the Clone spell, so there's no reason to believe that it Wish would make it.

This strongly implies that if the components are integral to the spell, they're provided. A component of the spell is a container of a specific worth, I'd argue it would be covered
Also the line
The spell simply takes effect
could imply that the 120 day gestation period would be complete, seeing as the effect of the spell is to provide a backup body for the caster in the case of death, but that's stretching it I think.

The best kind of spell description pays homage to the popular image of the spell or similar magic without restricting player interpretation or seemingly imposing a rule via fluff. For example, Burning Hands is a bad spell description because it has caused confusion as to whether or not you need both hands to cast it as the description would imply when the rules for somatic components clearly state that you only need one hand to perform them. Meanwhile True Seeing has a good description that lets us know that the ointment needed is for the eyes, but doesn't box you in with a description on how it's used or applied so you can flavor it how you please while still having an understanding of why the spell requires the things needed to cast it.

First of all, are they even any good? I've never made one out of fear that my favored enemy/terrain won't be relevant enough to the campaign I'm in and I'll just end up being useless.
Also, is int important at all for rangers? I feel like I've got this idea that rangers need to have a decent int score for nature checks, but does it even matter that much?
Finally, I come from pathfinder and I'm still really new to 5e so I'm entirely sure how the classes work yet. Is it possible to focus on str as a ranger or am I better off just building around dex instead?

A component of the spell is a container of a specific worth, I'd argue it would be covered
For the initial casting, sure, but it says nothing to imply something like using Wish to cast Detect Thoughts makes a copper piece appear out of thin air. That might be RAI, but RAW it doesn't materialize anything other than the effect of the spell. Though I would accept a ruling from Crawford if he stated that your interpretation was correct.
could imply that the 120 day gestation period would be complete
Absolutely not, that goes beyond stretching. That's like saying that a Hold Person cast using Wish couldn't be resisted because the spell is supposed to "take effect."

Honestly LMoP has some bad pacing issues out of the box. As is it feels like a race to beat Nezznar to the forge. Every time I've run it my players blaze through the main quest.
After they do that you can let them make Phandalin their base of operations and do the side-quests from there.

I was actually planning to give them Cragmaw Castle, and have Sildar provide the funds for refurbishment through the Lord's Alliance. Then I'll just make it clear the Wyvern Tor Orcs are getting bolder, that there's more undead wandering around, and that there have been sightings of a dragon, and hopefully they take the bait... assuming that we even continue playing after they've dealt with Nezznar.
You're right about the pacing issues I think as well. Or rather the locations are spaced so weirdly - Thundertree closer to Neverwinter than Phandalin, Wyvern Tor, Old Owl Well and Conyberry all a fair distance away, while Cragmaws and Wave Echo Cave are right next door.

I agree that they think it's cool to suck people's souls out, but that ridiculous fluff 5e brought back that forces them to act like worse vampires so they can do stupid shit that causes them to end up killed by adventurers infuriates me.

That is cool as fuck. Would the channel divinity allow you to go back in time even when your're in a sleep state for instance or would it have to be a concious act to do it? Part of me thinks it would be cool if your deity of time would intervene even when you normally can't act.

I had a player try and pull this. I told him no, in a more serious campaign you cannot perform martial arts as a bear.

Was he trying to use the bear's natural weapons instead of an unarmed attack? Otherwise, using martial arts as a bear is only slightly more ridiculous than turning into a bear.

Yes. Trying to roundhouse kick a person as a bear doesn't work in a more serious campaign, but it was more goofy and I wasn't concerned with tone/balancing players, I might even say fuck it. This is the guy that wanted to play a luchadore.
Hi, Ken. Next time don't powergame. If I have to scale the encounters to you, that makes everything less fun if you carry the team.

It's only okay to play a lucha if your campaign isn't serious.

Yeah, it breaks tone if you suplex a ghost and say you signature catch phrase. What's even the point in joining a horror game if you are gonna try that?

Having comic relief is important to horror to juxtapose, but there's comedy and then there's silly.

AwesomeTucker

I agree entirely. I find that with D&D, and my group especially, humor come more naturally than suspense. Players will make jokes, and I humor them and sometimes silly things just happen. However, implementing a a part where you either headbutt Strahd with your holy mask of honor, or you turn into a bear and try and elbow drop him, then I can't have that.

You misunderstand me. They can certainly try to do that stuff. If it works or not is up to me.

Either way, it's not about having power over my players. I'm there to be the narrator and impartial mediator. If my players try to break tone consistently, I speak with them and ask them why they are here. If I was playing another game, and one of my players made a super OC Donut steel character that kills the entire party, I would talk with them OOC the same way. We are here to have fun, quit ruining it.
