  1. Just DMd the link to DNDBeyond to you @Clipper I’ve gone for a Tiefling Rogue...
  2. Sounds good. I’ll come up with a character over the weekend. Thanks for doing this @Clipper!
  3. I’m DMing LMoP at the moment, and that’s the first time I’ve played an RPG in <checks watch> 30+ years... I’ve also bought the Essentials Kit, which I haven’t read so far, but probably will do soon...
  4. Would this be every Friday night? I’d be interested, but not sure I could do every week without fail...
  5. If someone made a live action shot for shot remake of Perfect Blue, reviewers would call it a Hitchcockian masterpiece. Don't bother arguing. It's just a fact (in my head).
  6. Satoshi Kon dying so young really was a fucking tragedy. Perfect Blue, Millennium Actress, Tokyo Godfathers, Paprika... they're all stone cold classics. The animation/production quality may improve from one film to the next, but they're really well directed movies right from the get go.
  7. That seems.... unreasonably harsh.
  8. Thanks @Graham S! For me, I just think the spell listings combined with the line from the PHB you quoted above (‘You can take a bonus action only when a special ability, spell, or other feature of the game states that you can do something as a bonus action’) don’t quite mesh and cause the confusion, for a hardened pedant such as myself. Most spells with casting time of ‘1 Bonus Action’ don’t explicitly state that you can perform them as a bonus action. Whereas Cunning Action and Two-Weapon Fighting do. Conversely, a spell with a casting time of ‘1 action’ doesn’t grant me an action
  9. OK, really really basic question: No one has really been using magic in our campaign... up until now. And as a result I'm reading the PHB about actions and spells and I'm getting mildly confused. If a spell has a casting time of '1 bonus action' then that indicates how long it takes to cast the spell, but does it mean that someone who has learnt the spell automatically gets a bonus action on every combat turn with which to cast the spell?
  10. Are those Lazy DM books worth getting? Reviews on Amazon (predictably) cycle between '5 stars! Very useful' and '1 star! Takes ages to state the obvious'
  11. Has anyone tried Game Sharing on the PS5 yet? It’s supposed to be easier than it was on the PS4...
  12. Thanks @Graham S @Kzo @phresh @Lying Cat & @scottcr for the advice. Very useful.
  13. Pros: - The look and feel of the app is much more modern and better laid out than Roll20 - As a result it's easier to use... once you've learned how to use it. - Performance can be better than with Roll20 (but you may need to tinker around with modules/settings to get there) - Dynamic lighting actually works - It's a one time cost, rather than a subscription - There are many many modules you can install that add or tweak functionality to get it to work the way you want it to. Cons: - It's another app to learn, and there is quite a lo
  14. I guess the main thing I lost track of was 'what is the main story thread?'. It just felt like the search for Gundren/The mine went completely unmentioned, which was my fault obviously, but switching between the different locations/NPCs as the PCs trundled around town was problematic. It was also too easy to just read up on the NPCs and and have not much for them to say/do other than deliver a quest. I need to get it feeling more organic than that and act as useful/interesting characters to begin with and bring their quests in as needed. I think I overwhelmed the PCs with side-ques
  15. So because of the Lockdown(s) I thought I'd try to get into D&D as a way of making sure I kept in touch with some friends online. It all went went well to begin with (we're starting off with LMOP)... actually really well for the first couple of sessions, with me DMing. And then the party got to Phandalin.... Holy moly that area being more 'free-form' ended up being a logistical nightmare from my point of view. I think the players were OK with it, but it felt like it frequently completely ran away from me. It didn't help that we're of course now doing this online, an
