House Rules

This working document will capture the house rules used by the Poly PCs D&D group.

Definitions

Rules as Written (RAW):

The rules will operate from a Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition baseline. All hardcover published materials are considered legal rules references (as are official rules publications from Wizards of the Coast staff).

Ad-hoc House Rules:

If there “old school” rules (previous editions, etc), playtest rules (Unearthed Arcana, etc), or 3rd party product rules (Kobold Press, etc) that you would like to see in the game, please propose them to the DM before the next game session. The DM may also implement an Ad-hoc House Rule in the middle of a session either because it is the first instance needing that rule (a surprise in the plot, potentially) or to make a ruling on a question of rules.

Rules in Play (RIP):

The DM has final say over the way the rules will be implemented. This may contradict the RAW sometimes. If you strongly object to a particular rule, speak up and we can discuss it as a group. The group may vote unanimously to override the DM.

Social Rules:

The whole group will agree on whatever rules govern behavior at gatherings and in communications.
