Have you considered not killing them? Having a traitor/impostor in the party can be a lot of fun. It can also lead to a lot of out-of-character conflict and anger, especially if you actually succeed in killing anyone's character. On the other hand, something that can be a lot of fun is to beat the party without killing them. At the moment of the party's ...

Pretty sure there's a million of these questions floating around, and the number one answer is always: kill them while they're sleeping. If you have access to poison, that's helpful to do so, but killing them in their sleep is virtually always the way to go. They're defenseless and you can bypass a lot of worrisome mechanics and go straight to victory. ...

The situation is somewhat interesting to analyze. I'm usually the DM of my group, and I try to avoid those kinds of situations on a 5-person group (alongside making sure at least one person is trained on each skill and such), but sometimes people just really want to play what they want to play, and you go to the dungeon with a party that don't cover all the ...

From a quick look at the Lifespirit Warden it looks like you don't actually get Healing outside of your second wind feature so much as THP and Resistances (at least in the level area you're looking at, and admittedly this is only after a quick search). Both of these are ok overall as mitigation is good, but it doesn't allow you to bring up someone who ...

This isn't your problem. You see him doing something “wrong,” but it's not causing you a problem. The people who get to decide if this is a problem or not are the other players in the group, who are coordinating their characters with his. It's their right and responsibility to judge whether this warden is dead weight or just fine. If there's a problem, you ...

Since you said he is an old friend, maybe he just don't know exactly what a defender is supposed to do (Put the monsters on a hard choice between attacking someone who have better defenses, or take a harsh punishment), and instead tried to make a "tank" as defined by the previous editions (Have a huge AC, have a ton of HP) and expecting the monsters to ...

As stated in a different answere, there is no way to completely avoid conflict. But you could do a pair of things that might help him understand your point of view. First, don't be confrontational. Wait for a good moment to speak to him, like outside sessions (otherwise you'd spend everyone's valuable game time) and ask him: "Ok, you've made this character ...

"how can I tell him that the character isn't filling the defender role in any real capacity without causing any conflict?" You can't. He thinks a thing, and he wants to think it, and you want to tell him he's wrong. That's necessarily a conflict, and there isn't really anything good you can do about that if you want him to change his behavior/change his ...

There are two questions you need to ask yourself: Are his actions negatively influencing the party? Is the player having fun? For the first: is the party capable of dealing enough damage to enemies they are not in constant danger of a total party kill? And is this a problem in the long run, on higher levels? If in both cases the answer is no, then there ...
