It would be helpful if you edited your question to include all the mechanical changes you intend to make, though.

comment Running LotFP Weird Fantasy Role-Playing one-shot in 5e
Being (somewhat) familiar with both lotfp and dnd-5e, although not the module in question, have you considered discussing expectation differences between the two systems and their styles of play? You don't necessarily need a mechanical fix if your players understand that they can't just roll perception to search or count on high hit point totals to protect them.

Typically, what it means when you explode a die is that if the die shows a certain number, you first add the die to your result and then reroll it. If it shows that number again, reroll again, and so on and so forth.

Thanks for the informative answer. Reading this, I'm encouraged to take out the restriction on the exploding dice expander and make them cost roughly the same.

As an aside, I think the falls under the "better/different/more specific" guideline for questions that might be answered elsewhere since someone could say "ability A should be priced significantly higher than ability B" or "ability A is superior at low dice pool size but ability B is better with a larger dice pool".

comment Are there homebrew fix classes or rules that put Fighting types and Roguish types into Tier 1?
@HeyICanChan Er... that's a different question than the one I want answered, though. I don't think it's hard to justify that a class that's based on Rogue or Fighter archetypes doesn't have access to spells unless they're an odd combo class like a Swordsage or a Factotum. But I'm also saying that a class can have a mechanic similar to spellcasting as long as that it isn't intended to duplicate spells. For a Fighter replacement, think of the fluff behind Warblade's maneuvers. I'm not sure why me saying "The fighter doesn't cast spells" is thematically controversial, though.

I'm curious as to why the few downvoters are downvoting this question. If a comment could be left on the reasons so I could improve my question, that would be helpful.

@HeyICanChan Yes, that brings the class out of the thematic archetype of the Fighter or the Rogue, but spellcasting-like mechanics are fine.

Thematically, the classes don't cast spells. Mechanically, solutions that resemble Maneuvers from the tome of battle or other solutions that mechanically resemble spell-casting are acceptable.
