I don't think the forum is toxic. There are just more people here focused on a strict interpretation of the rules. I favor a more flexible approach, for example, some artistic license in character design or modifying the rules a bit to fit a video game.
Toxic. The word is so over used these days. Not picking on you. Just stating an observation.
I think most people, even diehard 5e people like myself understand some changes to rules need to be made as it translates to video games. But what Larian did is a travesty. So I’m here in hopes they change things.
And since Asterion is an elf, he’s not short. He’s actually slightly above average height.
