So I took a second shot at making a fifth edition D&D NPC mostly from scratch. I used the stats and equipment in the Temple of Elemental Evil campaign book and the new Ranger from the Unearthed Arcana download. I'm not convinced that this is the best way to make NPC's. If I was running this for real I would definitely go a lot more bare bones. Also, unless I'm mistaken, I accidentally discovered that there are no more plain +X weapons in the 5e DMG anymore. Now it appears that you can only get that bonus on a weapon that does something else in addition to granting the bonus. If thats the case I'm really happy. I think it's a positive change for the game. Magic items should totally be cool.
