  • I like my women how i like my coffee. Without a penis.
  • I was vegan for a while. I lost 6kg, but most of that was personality.
  • A baby’s laughter can be the most beautiful sound you will ever hear.

Unless it’s 3am.
And you’re home alone.
And you don’t have a baby.

Not really a House Rule, but some of you will like this - 5E Data Base.

Compiles lists of spells, monsters, subclasses, BGs, etc.

I liked that too. :)

Also reminded me a little of Dark Side points in my Star Wars (Coriolis).

A cool idea may come of it, like a player 'may' spend 5 XP to get an Inspiration card, but the DM gets one too?

But probably not. Our deck (when we build it) is probably best suited to having the cards before hand :)

Yea pretty sure I will be in to the extent of the base game and the extension.

Re: Arena Kickstarter by VampreyVamprey, 19 Apr 2018 02:40

i had a look at the link. some good ideas.
the one that stood out to me was the bowl full of d6's, if a player takes one the DM takes one also. use it to add to whatever(att rolls, saving throws, etc)
this is similar to our current system but thought is sounded good.

Forgot to properly discuss this when in Ballarat. Any advances on this? Anyone else want to pitch in?

I liked it for the minis initially, but the game itself looks like a lot of fun AND the world itself would make a great RPG setting.

Anyway, need to look into this soon.

This is a link to the tweet about other peoples house rules that I see Connors added some stuff to. We might want to delve into this and see if there is anything else we like in there.

Plus if we see any other house rules that people use we can add them here for is to investigate, talk about etc

Place to collate and discuss choices for song themed runs.

I am on both of those :)


“It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” – Harry S. Truman

been reading it, it is in front of me at the moment, blair has also read parts.

Yea sounds like a page is a goer here. Then we can discuss and go from there.
We really need to look into Skype or twitch or something so we can video conference , will make some of these things a lot easier.

Definitely not linking all to initiative cards. i am not really sure what a lot of your post is saying, and it seems you don't get much of mine either :D

I mean some will be tied to card on initiative (as in the link above). Some tied to abilities, etc. As for actions = attack action, disengage or dash action etc. Likely have a bonus reaction one too. (All will depend on card description).

Basically, have a few cards where things are specified and a small number open for any use :)

Rather than back & forth here I will just start page. I had a few good ideas tonight but never got around to writing anything :(

Will write something tomorrow night. Then maybe chime in with comments or even specific ideas of you own :)


“It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” – Harry S. Truman

Yea but we also want to make them so they are usable when not using cards for initiative, so in the event we want to sell them we don't have to convince others to convert to the card system if they don't want to.

#1 Not sure what you are getting at by advantage to one type of roll, are you setting them only for saves for one ability type, if so what about advantage for attacks, hell what if you want advantage on initiative. Or are we saying those will only be usable for type 4 (as above but for any rolls).
#2 Same as above are we saying you can only reroll for a save for the ability type specified.
#3 Bonus action specified, do you mean like a full action, reaction or bonus action or specific as in attack, cast spell, move etc
#4 This is why Im think the above are only for specific ability rolls, as this says for any rolls.
#5 Yea could see it being a d4, d6, d8 etc
#6 Pretty sure this jsut means any other stuff we make up.

I don't mind the idea of some being tied to initiative cards but I don't think we want them all linked to them as it once again seems to be making things harder than it needs to be.

This guy creates miniatures, inc terrain and for $10 you can win the terrain.

Dank Dm Patreon

At THIS stage, right now, if we went in for $10/month, I am pretty sure we would win… as total backers is $6. Probably win the $5 mini too.

Holy crap. I was just watching Game on Twitch and they got a critical. I thought they were doing it wrong… but it turns out I have been doing it wrong for some time!

You do NOT double anything. You roll EXTRA damage dice THEN add modifiers. (I should have known this b/c if using set damage from monsters you just roll the normal damage dice and add on).

So to be clear - read page 196 of PHB. Oops!

Anyone had a read of the copy I left in Ballarat (or with Blair - not sure if it's in Ballarat or Melbourne).
