What’s your very best life advice?

Will 5e be the final edition of D&D with continous support or will there be another edition in the future?

What are your processes to make up an encounter on the fly?

CommentWhat are your personal processes for when you find you need to make up an encounter on the fly?I usually throw stuff at the players with CR in mind – if it’s something on the fly that’s just meant to be a quick fight, I use creatures with a CR at about half or less of the party’s level, no more than 3 – 5 critters. That usually seems to work. For a bigger monster, I just keep the CR at or less than the party’s level. from discussion D&D AMA with Mike Mearls and Chris Lindsay 1/15.

What is your favourite magic item from the DMG or houseruled?

Any reason for the higher price point?

Comment We wanted a premium product, especially in terms of art and book design, to ensure that the physical book had value as an object when compared to a future ebook. Obviously, that drove the cost up.
We also felt comfortable with that direction knowing we’d have a free version of the game available (Basic D&D).from discussion AMA: Mike Mearls, Co-Designer of D&D 5, Head of D&D R&D.

I was wondering if there will be any expansion of the topic of Tharizdun and the Abyss?

CommentHey Mike, I was wondering if there will be any more expansion of the topic of Tharizdun and his role in creating the Abyss? His lore is one of the most fascinating parts of the D&D universe yet I can find very little information regarding him.
It’s a little tricky, because that’s world material that’s applicable to the Dawn War setting, rather than D&D as a whole. I expect that if we do more with that world, we’d go into a little more detail on him and his background and plans. from discussion AMA: Mike Mearls, Co-Designer of D&D 5, Head of D&D R&D.
