Episode 225: Slingin' Spells & Slingin' Spells

Hello everyone! This week we've got no guests- just us two plain ol' normal hosts of yours- but we've still got a lot of fun to have on this episode. We're talking about a couple specific rules-based questions, revolving around the permanence and tangibility of a few particular spells in 5th Edition D&D- so come along with us, and let us know in the comments below whether you agree with our takes, or not!

And the winner of this week's Crit 3 drawing is BlackMagus2651! Congratulations, BlkMagus2651! Be sure to leave Crit Academy a review, so they can keep on making great products! They're a great group and would love to use your feedback to improve their products in the future.

Every week we're going to be giving away this new bundle of three new character option supplements from Crit Academy- the Warmind, the Skybreaker, and the Werecat- and all you have to do to enter is send us an e-mail with "Crit 3" in the subject line. It's that easy!

Question(s) answered this episode:

1. The firebolt spell says it can target creatures and objects.  Do you let your players use other spells that don't specifically target objects to target them or no? I can understand a vicious mockery not breaking down a door but maybe an acid splash could.

2. If you cast "Wall of Stone" is the wall made of stone or magic?
