How to Restrain Your Dragon – New DnD 5e Grapple Guide

This article has been requested a few times and I finally found time and motivation to write it. I put a lot of focus on explaining the exact mechanics of the rules so any player can grab this guide and know everything that need to know to grapple successfully, and once you’re comfortable with the basics you can become mathematically unstoppable with surprisingly little effort.

The grapple+shove combo has been a staple tactic for front-line martial characters, and I give it some focus in this article so that you can get the most out of your grappler. I also found some fun surprises while writing it, like the fact that artificers can be weirdly effective grapplers.
