WindyRebel,

That’s awesome! I threw in some Bugbear predators for Wave Echo Cave and ended up downing our Paladin. Oops!!!

I do like their basilisk too. I just like the reactions and extra things they add that give a little more flavor to the generic monsters.

WindyRebel,

I don’t have feedback on the tools, but as an SEO I am going to be honest and say that CSS needs to be tightened up a lot. Your button layout on mobile very difficult to read and discern what’s going on.

After your explanation here and looking at the page you created, I’m still not entirely sure what you’re trying make and test.

Are you trying to create a content management tool to make it easy to look up notes for your campaigns? Is this a place to store links? Is it meant to house player sheets?

WindyRebel,

I’m almost thinking about buying something like this, but building it upside down? Essentially like a pull out but on top of the table (more a stand?)

Or several of these?

I don’t know. 🤣

WindyRebel,

That’s a good idea as well. How does that work when there are 3 adults on one side at a 6ft length table?

WindyRebel,

Hmm. I here would this go and how would it work at a table? It’s definitely interesting!

WindyRebel,

Unfortunately, it’s a set/solid wood table (Amish made). It’s a solid top and legs at the corners. That’s why I was thinking about an entirely new table or these “accessories” to add

WindyRebel,

Interesting. Can you explain more what this looks like and/or what trays?

WindyRebel,

Yeah, it was a gamble for sure. What do you think of the other trays I linked?

WindyRebel,

Yeah, that’s what I was thinking initially was a larger foldable table - like an events table

WindyRebel,

So you put maps, minis, and other stuff on top of the lazy Susan, leaving the table itself free for food, sheets, and dice?

Help with a player that likes the idea of being a caster, but not the mechanics

I’ve been a DM for about 3 years, and have predominantly run one-shots and short campaigns in DnD5e and PF2e. I have a player who persistently builds primary caster based characters, but then won’t do anything in combat but “I stab it with my dagger.” They rarely use cantrips, and basically won’t cast a leveled spell...

WindyRebel,

The player obviously is stubborn and won’t apply what you’ve told them.

Kill their character. Their wizard with high intelligence wants to melee? The monsters are smart and they see the robe guy who gets stabbed easily - so that’s what they do. All. Of. Them.

Kill, kill, kill. Then have a chat with them after about why this happened. Let them know they know how to play the game but actions have consequences and the monsters are smart. You’ve let them have their learning curve and now there are stakes.

WindyRebel,

Playing in my 4e group, it’s all pen and paper and minis on a battle map that is drawn on.

I DM 5th and I use a battle map and minis, some printed mats, and a large books of battle mats (made by Loke). I also use dndbeyond to look up monster stats or quickly search rules and I play music via a Bluetooth lightbulb above our gaming table using Spotify. Finally, I use a laptop with google sheets for tracking initiative (and I kind of keep track of player HPs, AC, and spell saves) and google docs for outlining campaigns and taking notes.

My players for 5th use dndbeyond and can create characters using my resources I share and they are added to my campaign there so I can quickly review their stats/spells, etc as needed. Other players do it all pen and paper.
