Poor game design: adding cats and dogs in your game and not allowing for the player character to pet them
If you want to support good game design (?), might I recommend @CanYouPetTheDog on Twitter? On Fridays they also cover other, similar situations (petting other animals, for instance).
Multipliers don’t stack, they’re additive (that’s the only thing that makes sense, and how we handle the rare instances where they come up). I don’t know about all the other weird stuff being added in (I don’t play 5th ed, but that’s a lot of movement and action-type specific stuff that’s probably not meant to stack, either). You’ll still get a ridiculous number, assuming the DM allows all of those bonuses to stack on each other (a lot of magical bonuses have limitations regarding stacking, mostly AC-based ones, but they’re not exclusive)…but not quite THAT much.
Gotta go FAST
So I was curious a little while ago, and as far as I can tell, the top attainable speed in D&D 5e is 5400 feet per round, or 613.6 mph.
Found out today that a level 18 tabaxi monk, under the effects of a haste spell, wearing boots of speed, and using feline agility, and then using both action and haste action to dash, combined with step of the wind bonus action dash, can technically move 1920 feet per round. That’s 218 miles per hour. I’m getting nauseous just thinking about it.
5e handles stacking differently – namely, everything stacks unless it it changes your base. So something that is ‘your movement speed increases by 10’ stacks just fine with similar effects; something that says ‘your base movement speed is now 40’ doesn’t.
The ‘double a double is a triple’ thing still holds true though, and I feel like a level 18 Tabaxi monk/barbarian/fighter going that fast for one round isn’t as big of a deal as a level 9 wizard who can teleport anyway. :P
a friend in a FB cat group has this cat named pigeon
i think you can see where he gets his name
look if you decide to have a problem after midnight, that’s between you & God tbh
I spent two minutes staring at this wondering how I could set my phone to Dungeons and Dragons
pretty low chance that someone is going to turn to me in an emergency, vs. high chance of my rest being disturbed by some low priority notification.. I need that sleep to function. We don’t exist to be on call for each other 24/7.
For those of you that use Android (I don’t know about iOS), you can set your phone to do not disturb unless if someone calls you twice in ten minutes, so people can keep it silenced but still have the ability take a call in an emergency. I’m not saying people should set it that way – everyone should decide that type of thing for themselves – just that you have a choice that kind of gives you a better middle ground.

Part of me wants to shift the entirety of Magical Fantasy Adventure Land into the normal world instead of splitting it into a separate realm.
Part of me is still annoyed that this fucker still doesn’t have a proper title. Or at least something that sounds better as a place holder.
it’s called Mafalia. that’s your world’s name. ‘MAH-FAR-lee-uh’.
That actually sounds really good as a world name. I’m curious to know where that came from?
it’s the acronym. “Magical Fantasy Adventure Land”-ia becomes MaFAL-ia: Mafalia.
i always find if you need a placeholder name for something, write it out and make up an acronym, adding and removing letters or vowels if need be.
- “The House Where Clio Fell in Love With Him”
heHo useW he reCli oF elli nL oveW ithH im”
hence ‘the house where Clio fell in love with him’ becomes ‘Thrawecliffe House’. what’s a ‘thraw’? i don’t know. is it on a cliff? maybe; that’s an author’s preogative.
suddenly the name of the house itself throws up new questions which an author in answering goes off down a rabbit hole of worldbuilding.
Holy fuck. That is absolutely amazing advice.
Thank you so much!!!!!
As someone who regularly smashes words together for humorous purposes, I’m appalled I’ve never thought to use it in my writing. Bless you.
My favourite example of this is Dragon Age. The setting is called Thedas, which comes from calling it “the Dragon Age setting” in development!
The Dragon Age Setting
The D&D game that my boyfriend is currently running is based in a city called Isan, which is an acronym for “I Suck At Naming”.
Icrabic (Ick-Ray-Bick). ICRBC. I Cannot Reach Because Cat. I’m serious, I renamed a city because I couldn’t reach my notes because Zoan was on top of me. Players haven’t realized that I actually renamed the city to match yet.
