New DM here. I have dabbled a bit with D&D in the past, including playing on FG back in 2010. I’m now looking to get back in to it and start up an adventure with my wife and a few friends. My friends are remote, so it would necessitate playing online. I really enjoy rolling […]

Where does poisonous “oil of taggit” come from?

Many useful buff spells have "target you". Is there a way to have them target someone else (via a metamagic or something)? Yes I’m aware that I can target my familiar with such spells.
