comment Is it possible to grab a living enemy by the leg and use him as a club?
@JasonSmith probably. It's debatable, and generally I'd rather not punish creative behavior like this.

comment How should I adjust my campaign for additional players, unforeseen high stats?
@K.Niemczyk Welcome to the club! :). HP and Damage are pretty easy tweaks, and if you're already using the static values from the modules, it shouldn't be hard to bump them up a bit (like I said, pick a midpoint between the max and the average...maybe average +1 or something) if you feel like your players need a bit more of a test. Though my #1 advise to new DMs is don't be afraid to talk to your players about what's going well and what's going poorly, and what you're thinking about changing to make it easier/harder.

comment Does Concealment exist in D&D 5th Edition?
@Sandwich there are ways that this would not be the case. For instance, a character with darkvision would not suffer from heavy obscurity, a character with tremorsense would not need to see at all.

comment Did I Calculate this Crit Damage Correctly?
Vanguard weapon is in AV1, Furious Assault IIRC is in PHB2, it's a half-orc racial trait. You've got the right answer here.

@Bigern absolutely. I'll add a link to my answer, but this document has 2 chapters on the subject: media.wizards.com/2014/downloads/dnd/DMDnDBasicRules_v0.1.pdf

@Bigern there are a couple of different budgets to worry about. There is the per encounter budget, which sets the challenge level of an encounter (namely easy, moderate, hard or deadly), and then the budget per adventuring day, which is what you should put your characters through between long rests. You can concern yourself with the level budget, but I'm not sure how much it's going to gain you. I think you'd be better off focusing on the per encounter and per day budgets
