    If you are rolling "Death Saving Throws" when you get 3 saves you are at 0 HP still you are just "Stabilized" and "Unconscious" meaning you don't have to keep rolling saving throws. Rolling a nat 20 will bring you back up at 1 HP but 3 death saves will not. EDIT: This is merely me being a big dork, its a small detail he put a lot into these videos so small hiccups are always going to be a thing. I did not expect this to blow up. JoCat please keep up the amazing work you have inspired me to take up art in the form of 3D animation I hope I can provide back some of the amazing content you have given this community one day!

      @Demongunner7 The PHB says that death saves reset after you gain any HP or become stable. Therefore while stable is worse than conscious and moving, it's not that much worse.

      "normal" is a relative term and as an American i can tell you i've yet to meet a european i'd classify as "normal" that being said i went to an engineering highschool and did in fact learn to use real units pretty much exclusively. Then i went to college for software engineering and all i needed was a quick minuet to automate away conversions forever

    Question from someone who's never played DnD, so the answer might be obvious, but... If spells don't get stronger from modifiers, is there a combat-related point to intelligence?

      It is called a Table Top RPG. It is a mix between shared storywriting and wargaming. D&D was created back when computers still wasn't a thing, and you don't really play with a board. It is TTRPG and it is its own genre.

    10 or lower for death saves to fail and 11 or higher for them to succeed. You talk a lot about numbers, but you can't understand that??? 1-10 and 11-20 is what makes it a 50/50 chance.

    1. Cloud Seeker
      Cloud Seeker
      16 أيام قبل

      Yes, but there is a difference between saying "there is a 50% chance you succeed" and "If you get 11 or above you succeed, everything is you fail". If you just say 50% that doesn't really say anything. Is it every even number or every odd number?
