    I'm not sure what the justification was for somehow loading two hand crossbows at the same time. Like I said, I didn't care. I think one side of the argument was of the opinion that any appeal to realism in the game is bad.

    Meanwhile, I'm going through feats. I wish I'd set one of my attributes to an odd number, so I could benefit from those fiddly +1s. The attributes in D&D are a real fossil. Martial Adept looks kind of cool, but one superiority die per short rest isn't much. Maybe I can take a feat to assist me with skills instead.

    It turned into yet another facet of the "realism in D&D" discussion, which always leads to a flamewar. I didn't pay much attention since I wasn't going to do it anyway.

    Maybe someday there will be an edition of D&D that treats crossbows seriously, but 5E isn't that edition....

    Yeah, I remember there being some massive controversy over whether dual-wielding hand crossbows was possible. Eventually someone from WotC ruled "no".



    Indeed not, and I'd rather take something somewhat interesting than a slight uptick in numbers. Particularly on a non-magical character.



    Maybe, but if I wanted to shoot multiple times per round I'd be using a bow....

    I'm never going to use dual hand crossbows. So I guess it adds up to sticking with rogue and taking another feat instead of sharpshooter. Then again, ignoring cover and distance isn't half bad.

    That's fair. Multi-classing was annoyingly uneven in 3E - if you didn't know what you were doing, you just made a weaker character. Seems the same is true in 5E. The primary thing I'm interested in here is the archery combat style. A +2 to hit is fairly big in 5E. Especially if I also want Sharpshooter.

    I've been playing a 5E campaign for a while now. It's... better than I expected, but still below what I'd consider a good system. I'm running a dwarf scout rogue with a crossbow who just reached level 4. So I have a dilemma about multiclassing her or not. I thought about taking two ranger levels, but I'm not sure if it's worth it to delay rogue progression. People tell me that taking 5 levels in ranger is good, but not only would I rather focus on roguery, but I'm also deliberately avoiding any extra attacks, since I'm using a crossbow and I refuse to shoot it like it's a semi-automatic rifle....

    We're five seasons into this show, and people are still confused about the function of basic building blocks of the setting, ones that we see routinely used in fight scenes. As well as about how and if they differ from powers we're meant to believe are amazing and legendary....

    Maybe the writers are waiting until they actually know that themselves....

    The Thousand Streams River isn't a thing anymore, and good riddance. But is the character of a No Moon occultist who travels around the Threshold, encouraging an interest in the occult and esoteric among mortal societies, because they feel it strengthens them and undermines the Realm and Immaculate Philosophy, something that the rules and story will support?
