Hopefully More help for Beginners to D&D - I found it a minefield when I first started, so hopefully this will help other novices (and my new players)
EDIT: These are the house rules that we follow when I’m the DM for my group as I use critical fails and success for fun flavour:
In 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons, rolling a natural 1 or 20 doesn’t necessarily mean a critical failure or success outside of attack rolls. (It’s not the standard.) A crit fail on an attack roll isn’t 5e standard either– penalties don’t inherently occur on a 1.
“So comes snow after fire, and even dragons have their ending!” said Bilbo, and he turned his back on his adventure. The Tookish part was getting very tired, and the Baggins was daily getting stronger. “I wish now only to be in my own armchair!” he said.
