Is 5e perfect for a loser pantheon setting?

So I was reading the PHB and the Basic rules for Players and DMs and I started wondering about the easliest way to include everything while making sense of their existances and frequencies in a single setting. All the different classes, races, types of monsters and beings and the underlying mechanics.

 

And it came to me that the easiest explanation is many loser pantheons.

As is, 5th edition fits the many dead or defeated gods setting very well.

 

Essentially they were many different pantheons on the setting.

92. Battlefield control and protection fighters in 5e

 

Lots of people are worried that 5e will not allow a fighter to tank.  Well, bounded accuracy certainly makes all PCs a bit more vulnerable (as it does for monsters too), and it will change the way the game feels, but it is certainly possible to play a battlefield control or protection fighter in 5e.

 

The fighter is actually the most versatile class; here’s just a few reasons why:

 

Attack with weapon of choice, 1 handed or 2 handed (for versatile weapons or use 1 hand or 2 handed weapon – switch for free as you move).

DM Reece's Campaign Blog

It's been a very long time since I've run a campaign, and we only have 2 people so far... The DM (me) and a player (my son). I purchased the Starter Set and downloaded the Basic Rules with plans to use the Nentir Vale setting from the 4th edition of the game as a framework to start from.

5th Edition Begins!

It's not ready yet!

 

fig i: Heresheth is a work-in-progress at the moment

 

The second session of our runthrough of the 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons starter box was this week, and we finally made it to second level!  In our defence, the majority of the first session was character creation, so we're not just being slow!

90. ShadeRaven's Horde of the Dragon Queen Campaign - Session 1

Horde of the Dragon Queen Campaign Notes  (SPOILERS!!!!!)

 

Brevick Dwarf Fighter (John), Mily Halfling Rogue (Yan), Grim Human Fighter (Jay), Strix Human Wizard (Nathan), Myles Human Cleric (me)

 

Session 1

 

Heading toward Greenest from Nashkel

 

I knew Strix from Nashkel….Strix, battered and bruised, told me he had to get out of Nashkel so I (a wanderer by nature) joined Strix.   He’s a strange man, but he, like I, believe in change, like the seasons, and I know he has no love for orcs; therefore we stand together.

Blurbs from the Booth-The Price of Admission

            I saw a thread on ENWorlds discussing how much you would pay at a hobby shop vs. how much you pay online.  I thought about that for a quite a while and I think I'd pay a lot.  Let's give some examples and thoughts that go with that.

Random 5e Character Generator (Excel)

I'm working on a random 5e character generator.  I'll be adding features as I go.  Currently, it covers name generation, class, race, 4d6 (drop lowest) ability score generation lines up with the major abilities of each class, and hit points.

 

I'll be adding skills, etc. as I get my PHb next week.
