I seem to remember in previous versions of D&D, Grappling would grant bonuses to attackers and make grappling creatures harder to attack and such things.
However, I'm reading the rules for grappling in the D&D 5 Basic Rules, and I'm not seeing anything like that. It appears that grappling simply prevents movement, and not much else.
From the conditions appendix:
A grappled creature's speed becomes 0, and it can't benefit from any bonus to its speed.
(etc., how to end the condition)
Is that all grappling does? It doesn't hamper attacking or anything else? Or am I missing something?
If that's all, in what situations would I really want to grapple someone?
