Is Matt Mercer’s homebrew setting now considered an official setting?

Now that Explorer’s Guide to Wildemount is out, I’m curious to know how much of Matt Mercer’s homebrew content is now considered “official”. Since this is a first-party WotC official D&D sourcebook, does this mean that his homebrew setting and its associated lore is now to be considered an official setting, on par with the […]

What is the origin of the goliath race in the Forgotten Realms?

I’ve always assumed that the goliath race are half-giants or pygmy giants or something like that. Something related to giants. In the descriptions of the goliath race in 5e (in Volo’s Guide to Monsters and Elemental Evil Player’s Companion), it doesn’t actually mention the race’s origins, nor does it mention their relation to giants at […]

Can Prestidigitation create medical gloves?

The spell Prestidigitation can: You can create a non magical trinket…that can fit in your hand and that last until the end of your next turn. Some plastic medical gloves “could” fit into your hand and don’t require any magical properties to work. So could this be done within the confines of the RSW?

What affect would 90 gallons of rain falling on 30 sq ft have?

Create or Destroy Water can create 10 gallons per upcast-level of rain in a 30ft cube, up to a total of 90 gallons. It can also be cast so it falls as rain. It looks like that would produce a rainfall of about 100mm/hour or twice the violent shower listed here. I’ve calculated that the […]

Do we know what skin tones humans can have in D&D lore?

This question is inspired by What different skin colour can a tiefling officially have? From the 5e Tiefling player race description, Infernal Bloodline section (PHB, p. 42): Their skin tones cover the full range of human coloration, but also include various shades of red. Emphasis mine. It occurred to me, I don’t think we have […]

Idea for a new class to add to DnD 5e called the Cursed?

I am not sure this is entirely viable of an idea however, my goal is to create a martial class (non-magical) that can feasibly compete with higher level mages on a somewhat even playing field at higher levels. Is this even possible in the first place? My idea for this class is called the cursed. […]

Is there a spell that allows you to divine what happened “here”?

My Queen walks into a room full of bodies. One survivor, a small noble she’s never met before, tells her a story about what happened to the prisoners she expected to find here. Fortunately, she’s a skilled Diviner. Is there a spell other than Speak with Dead she could use to figure out what happened […]

Do +1 weapons add their bonus to attack, damage, or both?

Self-explanatory. I’ve combed through the DCC core rulebook but I couldn’t find a clarification on what a magic weapon’s bonus actually applies to.

What does a typical goliath look like?

After reading this question, it seems that there’s very little to go on from D&D 5e regarding what a goliath typically looks like. We have an image, but that’s just an example of one individual goliath.                                                        Since there’s so little to go on in 5e, do older editions of D&D go into more detail […]
