    Default The META THREAD of useful things!

    Hey all!

    I wanted to create a super index of articles, guides, or resources that might help a player, or DM, regardless of familiarity with DnD 5e. If you have a useful guide, article, or resource, please post them here and I'll add them to the OP. I'd love to see some class guides at some point, like we had floating around 3.5.

    Cheers!

    ~Corinath

    Well, there's the spell sorter/index: http://salty-ridge-7989.herokuapp.com/

    There's also a monster sorter floating around somewhere.

    Thank you!

    I had the spell index listed already, but I just edited it to make the name more clear. Thank you!
    I'll add the magic economy thread as well.

    I appreciate it!

    Do class guides from other sites count?

    This one isn't made by me, but it's the earliest Paladin guide released: Oathbound, by Gladius Legis. Kinda hard to find, since it doesn't appear in Google.

    Spoiler: And another source...
    Show
    Then there's this one which is native to the forum, of course.


    I don't like self-promoting so much, so I had to find another source to compensate for this shameless attempt.

    Thanks for the mention Corinath!



    Hope that http://www.sageadvice.eu will help to find answers, because this 5e is amazing and tweets from Mike Mearls, Jeremy Crawford and now from Chirs Perkins and Rodney give the rules a tone of voice: good intentions not rules lawyers.

    THANKS!


    grazie!

    "...I worry that modern gaming is gradually shrinking the wide spectrum of gameplay mechanics into a single narrow red bar with "KILL" written on it sideways. Exploration, navigation, puzzles, platforming, all gradually shrinking away until only one thing remains, being taken by the hand from room to room, moving on only when nothing remains alive in each one." - Yhatzee Crosshaw

    Might I suggest that this sucker gets stickied? Or that it gets remade into a sticky? I for one have hunting for it multiple times.

    Just subscribe to the thread. That way, you can always know when it gets updates. But yeah, this should get stickied.

    Thirding the sticky. Time to start the dark ritual that may summon a moderator to fulfill this wish?

    Not sure if anyone else will actually find it useful, but I put together a table showing base damage/hit chance breakpoints for GWM's -5/+10 option. It would apply to Sharpshooter as well. It's located here: GWM Reference Table.

    At the moment it only includes entries for targets whose AC is at least 2 points higher than the attack bonus. The table is technically pertinent all the way to targets whose AC is up to 2 less than the attack bonus (i.e. effectively need a -2 or greater on a D20 to hit), but that seemed like such an unlikely situation I left those lines off the table for clarity.

    For those of you that find yourself here, a note: I would consider this thread deprecated since it hasn't been updated in a while, and this other one has taken up the torch now:
