Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Have been playing and GMing D&Ds from B/X to D&D 5e. Becoming a fan of indie games and the OSR in the mid 2000s expanded my horizons for both trad and indie games. Fond of GMless and short-form games that suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about soliciting a list of ideas.

comment What should a DM do if a player wants to do something impossible?
@LorenPechtel They are actually quite different in ways that are relevant to your answer. Which you might have known if you knew the 4e rules, and why answering without knowing a game is hazardous at best.

comment What should a DM do if a player wants to do something impossible?
A good example for the specific case. But what about the general case the question asks about: players trying to do the impossible?

comment What monsters and races are from the Shadowfell?
@Oxinabox Adding tags just to satisfy personal curation is inappropriate, please don't. You can't prevent all D&D-related questions from appearing in your view of the site. I've replaced those tags with dungeons-and-dragons because the Q is not about 5e or 4e, and at best it's general D&D because Shadowfell is a D&D (sub)setting, though I think the general D&D tag is itself stretching it. For example, if this were a question about using the Shadowfell in (e.g.) Fate, it would not have any D&D tags at all.

revised What monsters and races are from the Shadowfell?
tags are for reflecting the content of the question, not for personal curation control; at best, this takes the general D&D tag, if any, because the Shadowfell is a D&D (sub)setting; the question is not about 4e or 5e
