>Whenever you cast a spell of 1st level or higher, you must make a saving throw, the type of which matches the spellcasting ability used for the spell, with a DC equal to 5 + the level of the spell. On a failure, you must roll on the short-term madness table. The effects last until the end of your next turn.>Each day at dawn, you must make a saving throw, the type of which matches the spellcasting ability of the spellcasting class in which you have the most levels, with a DC equal to 5 + the combined level of your spellcasting classes (half- and one-third-casters reduced respectively, rounded up). On a failure, you must roll on the long-term madness table. The effects last until the next dawn.>Whenever you gain a level in a spellcasting class, you must make a saving throw with disadvantage, the type of which matches the spellcasting ability of the class you gained the level in, with a DC equal to 10 + the combined level of your spellcasting classes (half- and one-third-casters reduced respectively, rounded up). On a failure, you must roll on the indefinite madness table. The effects last until you gain another level. If this madness is otherwise removed by any means, you must make the saving throw again at every 7th dawn until you fail or gain another level.There, I fixed martial/caster disparity.
>>76073674what are wheel chair rules?
>>76073705Better idea>remove all martials>all melee classes are now half caster gishesYou can't fight a magical godlike being with only a sword, faggot. It's time to grow up
Is it even possible to make a virgin Fey wanderer ranger considering the feywild?
>>76073718Is basically a indestructible, non magical hovering plataform that gives you advantage to dex and ignores difficult terrain, stairs, cliffs, while also being a bag of holding.
artificer/arcane trickster or dragon sorcerer/swashbuckler?
>>76073739it's a fucking magic item
>>76073738Sure. Say that some fey transmuted away their genitals as a prank.
>>76073718Weak to stairs, stamina and agility penalties on any incline, significantly more likely to suffer critical hits, cannot use stealth, cannot climb, cannot use steeds, half speed, agility, attacks and attack radius.
>>76073764>can't be dispelled nor affected by antimagic fieldsOk, magical no magical if you prefer
>>76073829magic items can't be dispelled mongoloid
The character art thread is down, does anyone have good character art for a male satyr rogue, preferably one who doesn't have a beard?It's really difficult to find pictures of satyrs where they have any clothes on, and even then they're basically just streaking.
>>76073741what the fuck are you even trying to do??
>>76073738Depends, male or female?
>>76073890no, it doesn't
>>76073861Then why it says "can't be dispelled" in the rules?Anyway is still unaffected by antimagic field, and those affect magic items except the wheelchair
>>76073674No and i can't imagine what kind of person would
>>76073878Clearly he wants some sort of rogue gish >>76073741Artificer/AT is probably overall stronger for the free shields and +1 items but I'd personally go Swash because I prefer Cha.Have you perhaps considered Warlock/Swashbuckler or AT? Great fun with some cool shenanigans
Have you ever had a party member you dislike get in a helpless situation and seriously considering just playing the fool so they get killed, /5eg/?
>>76073674Flanking, yay or nay?What about a flat bonus (+5) instead of advantage?
>>76073878a character who kills people with kitchen knives, magically conjured flavor compounds, and a hand of glory
>>76073920>No armpit hair
>>76073960I don't mind it but I'm in the minority. You'd probably want a smaller alternative bonus though since +5 is pretty big. A common rule I see is +2
>>76073674Cute cripple wizard girls in wheelchairs are the best
>>76073920That's not a male. Unless you mean the boy she's in the process of molesting, who is not a satyr.
>>76073953This was legit an accident but someone in my group was playing a really obnoxious Monk and I cast Sleep at a bunch of guards that were surrounding him, turned out they all had more HP than the Monk did so the boss cultist lady just walked up and nailed him with Inflict Wounds and thew his body into the sacrificial pit
>>76074001I too like the necromancer on Adventure Zone Graduation.
>>76073920Looks so much better than the final product.
>>76074048That's a small tiddy female satyr who is naked, not a male satyr who could be construed to be a rogue.
>>76073960>FlankingWhenever 5e attempts to incorporate an idea from 4E, they fuck up. Coincidence?
>>76073980I was thinking +2 for side, +5 for a proper flanking, but you might be right that that's pretty generous.I'd also rule that some monsters just don't give you any advantage for flanking - not lots, but things like oozes and enemies with weird forms can't be flanked
If dragons and their descendents are birthed from eggs does that mean when a human chick gets knocked up by a dragon she lays an egg?And does having a dragon parent make you a half dragon or a dragon born? They're both by lore birthed from dragons so what causes the difference
>>76074092tough customer, are you?
>>76074092dont even bother asking /tg/ for character art. the only thing you will ever get is borderline unusable softcore porn of female characters. just look at every character art thread, they're all like this.
>>76073674Made this for someone I DM for, but for her character in Frostgrave.
>>76074133It's like you've never actually been in a character art thread but think you can guess what's in them
>player has consorted with a demonic creature in order to return his mercenary company back to life>been collecting the souls of creatures they kill using an artifact the creature gave him>has collected enough souls that i want to return some of his company to himthe creature in question is an haemalchemist who had been corrupted by abyssal forces, and was freed by the party after promises of sharing knowledge and power, but particularly gravitated towards the PC in questionthere are two ways of playing this, and i'd like some advice on which sounds betterthe first option is to return the people to life normally, upholding the bargain, and have the creature do shady shit in the background with the souls, something that'll come back to bite them laterthe other option, which i think is more interesting, is to have the people come back, but there's just something off about them, due to the corruption of this abyssal creature in the resurrection processthey could seem normal at first, but over time, become more and more aberrant over time, until it becomes full pet sematary
>>76074045If she can revive the dead how come she can't revive her legs?
>>76074119Half dragon. As far as I'm aware Dragonborn are created from the blood of dragons or something along those lines, but aren't actually born from full dragon parents.
>>76074097>Whenever 5e attempts to incorporate an idea, they fuck up.ftfy
To bring something back from the old thread>>76073649>they're save or sucksWhat the fuck do you mean? You decide if you used an arcane shot when it hits a creature, not when you make the attack.
>>76074212No that's half dragons, they bathe in dragon blood and take on the traits of dragons, including the tail
>>76074092You are very unlikely to find any sort of clothed satyr art anywhere
>>76074119Half-dragon. Dragonborn are more distantly related, and were basically an artificially created slave race.
What god should a dragonborn gain favor with to get a miracle like having kids with a lover of an incompatible race? Bahamut or the setting's fertility god?
>>76074131While I appreciate you trying to help me, I did ask for a MALE character art, and everything you've offered so far has been of females. I recognise that I'm not a paying customer, but I'm going to draw a parallel: If I was at a café and asked for a coffee, I don't think it would be reasonable to call me a "tough customer" when I was offered a soda instead.I was kind of afraid of this, though. I don't really like saying "thanks but no" to people who try to help out, but in this case I do know what I want. If the art at least tried to conform to my request of a male satyr rogue, I wouldn't complain at all.>>76074133That's not true. While much of the art is indeed just softcore wank bait, there are instances of legit, usable character portraits out there. People are just biased to pay more attention to the more outrageous content.
>>76074251Then why isn't half dragon the playable race like half orc
>>76074270For the same reason dragon isn't a playable race like orc
>>76074270Because then they'd be forced to draw tails in the art book and adding limbs to your art commission is like an extra $50They're just a small indie company, they gotta cut costs
>>76074200She's a NECKromancer, not a legromancer.
>shepherd druid for conjure animals, summon beast/fey/elemental>conjuring wizard that isn't actually conjurer for conjuring spells>mark of warding abjurer What do I play?
>>76074243There's this, but he's really not a rogue.
>>76074270There isn't a reason, wotc are just retards. I always replace the dragonborn traits with half dragon because it turns the race from total dogshit to sort of able to compete with vhuman (it still can't but hey it's better than nothing)
Could anyone enlighten a starting dnd player on how to best build a swarmkeeper ranger? is dex still the best skill?
>>76074092>>76074269anon, stop trying to limit your search and try broadening it. you're more likely to find what you need
>>76074254>bahamutWhy would he pray to a final fantasy boss
>>76074220Keep spamming this. I want to see it catch on
Can a high enough Artificer use the spell swapping effect of these fancy new spellbook items?My initial interpretation says yes, but that may be because I'm playing an Artificer right now. Looking for second opinions.
>>76074373>>bahamutoh no no no western game dev "originality"
>>76074385RAW, it doesn't do a whole lot for you since you don't have wizard spells and having wizard spells isn't a requirement for you to use the book
>>76074358I'm sorry. I'm having a difficult time understanding how pictures of naked satyr thots is going to help me find the picture of a male satyr rogue I'm looking for.Like here, you've provided one such picture! I'm going to consider it, even though it's quite far from what I actually pictured, because it at least satisfies the conditions I set for my search. If you have any less evil portraits, I'll gladly consider them as well. Thank you for the portrait!
>>76074144Is her character a cute wheelchair girl?
>>76073953Once, the DM- via an aboleth- managed to take control of my character. I gave unreserved advice on how best to kill the party.Combat only lasted one more round.
Does anyone mind posting ruined castles inhabited by Orcs, and dark Knights?
Is fog cloud more of a water spell or an air spell?
>>76074385Requires attunement by a Wizard.
>>76074500In this scenario you are the helpless and the fool, amazing
>>76074539ruined castles inhabited by Orcs, and dark Knights
>>76074558Oh shit, never mind, re-read it. Still, not very useful since you cast Artificer spells and not Wizard Spells.
>>76074548According to Genie Warlock, Water.
Are their wheelchairs in a land of magical healing, divine resurrection, and alchemical potions?
>>76074548Air, the fog can move but can't condensate
>>76074600I don't know. Are there graveyards or coffins?
>>76074600Considering most settings are medieval because spellcasters are greedy fucks, you can bet you ass little mwamba in fantasy africa is still dying at 13 years old.
>>76074200Well when she’s dead and a lich in the fiture she will
>>76074539Next best thing i have
>>76074600Yeah for retards who can't afford any of that
>Astral Self Monk
>black person joins our games club>asks to join our campaign>he wants to use his fursona as a character>say sure, he can use vhuman as the race>he shows me his fursona>it's a monkey, it looks like an anime character and has blue eyes>he picked monk as his classI regret everything
>>76073674Wheelchair assassins are a major plot point in the satirical novel Infinite Jest.
I am here to remind you why you don't mix beast races with humanoids in DnD parties:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hr0siIYAhdY&ab_channel=Lukah
>>76074665You mean Echo Knight?
>>76074680shit man I'm sorry you're being forced to play it
Imagine a whole party of wheelchair adventurers.
>>76074756So how do the barb or the cleric move?
>>76074756Retarded beyond belief, but that's modern D&D players for you.
I want to play a female wheelchair-bound rogue that finds a male silver dragon boyfriend who loves and protects her.
>>76074756What are you going to do when you can't access the dungeon? sue the litch or the dragon?
>>76074778Why?I want to play the silver dragon
>>76074756>the gnolls start laughing hysterically at the pitiful sight of the party before promptly flipping over their wheelchairs so they can keep laughing
>>76074803Great power differences in relationships is my fetish.
>>76074821Where i'm from we just call that rape and slavery but eh
What makes more sense for an earth-themed spell, catapult or false life?
X was the firstborn son of Y and Z, a wealthy family that owned land etc. His family had everything that they could want. Power, gold, maids, butlers and so on, but none was give to X.His parents beat him, kept him in a locked room and just treated him like an animal. He wasn't even sure that no one other than his immediate family knew that he existed.His 2 younger sister, who were twins, would treat him like trash. Spit at him, mock him, taunt him while showing off her bodies.>You'll never know what the body of a girl feels like, faglordHe was kept locked up in his room for the most of his life, fed food and given a book or 2 every now and then.When he was 16, his drunken mother told him the truth about the familys wealth.His mother and father were beggars. One day a devil approached them with a contract.>money, power and long lifes just for the price of their first born son's life as became and adultOn the night of his 18th birthday he was woken up by the sound of his parents drunkenly barging into his room. They tried to take his life during his sleep as a payment for the deal.Maybe it was because they were both drunk, or X's dumb luck he managed to fight his parents off. Killing them in self defence.He took what he could and ran from the family estate that same night.He was alone in the streets of (town name). Begging and scavenging for scraps of food, until he met (minister of church something).He was offered a job as a handyman, errandboy and a grave digger at the local church.X took up on the job, spending a few years, living in the church, working and studying.He owed his life to the minister and was ever so grateful to him. He believed in the church, yet the divine powers never gave him any strength. He was determined that some day that would change.So I'll be rolling a wizard, probably a bladesinger because it seems cool.Hows my backstory? Do keep in mind that I'm a 12 pack of beer into me and esl pleb, so pardon my french
>>76074838I'm pretty sure it's not rape if it's consensual. And I doubt a silver dragon would try to hurt a partner that breaks up with them anyways.
>>76074821I hope you don't want to be a wheelchair girl in real life.
>>76074451Hurts to see it, but that does make more sense. Thank you. o/
>SMV | SVM>MVS | MSV>VSM | VMSHow does /tg/ say components
>>76074853Catapult since you can launch rocks. Cast it in a high enough slot and you can launch boulders.
>>76074864No, I like my legs and it's just a part of the fantasy.
>>76074871Components don't exist in my settings so I don't say them
What's the best class to reflavour as a tech user?And why is it monk?
>>76074373Brain-damaged piece of shit that plays jRPGs might not know that, but Bahamut is a mythological fish that supports the world.
>>76073953One character threatened mine and I seriously consider allowing this to happen at some point.
>>76074494>I'm sorry. I'm having a difficult time understanding how pictures of naked satyr thots is going to help me find the picture of a male satyr rogue I'm looking for.because you shouldn't be looking for a rogue, you can look for other things likeSAYTR ASSASSIN, which is what i looked up to find that.
>>76074854Seems needlessly tragic and edgy. I do like the church taking him in but giving him the tools for wizard training rather than indoctrinating him into being a priest or something - that's neat.
Guys I've never played d&d but I have watched the overlord animeDo spellcasters really stand around spamming buffs before going into combat? What does mantle of chaos even do
>>76074865ask your DM, he might see it differently since artificers and wizards are both prepared casters
>>76075020Not in 5th edition. You can only concentrate on one buff at a time.
>Player having a grudge against BBEG wants to willingly mutilate himself to act as a lure for BBEG just so he can lash out on him
>>76075020That was more of a 3.5 thing. In 5e they have Concentration to worry about, which limits them to one strong buff usually
>>76075011Yeah I sold the idea on the church giving him food and basic supplies, maybe a copper or so a day for his salary.I'll probably scrap the sibling thing or something.I'm just brainstorming by myself and throwing ideas on the wall
>>76074668>fursonaAnd you didn't kick him out right there?
Does the Sorcerer's Draconic Resilience stack with Unarmored Defense?
>>76075020Overlord is inspired by autistic jap mmos which were inspired by old pre wotc dnd which was super autistic and horribleModern dnd is more like a modern western mmo like wow where mages use their spells for damage or crowd control instead of stacking on an assortment of miniscule buffs
Here's a fun exercise /5eg/: what are some things in your campaign/setting that might trigger this board?For me it's>modern selection of food>trains>robots (not magically animated)
>>76073953I was almost in a situation like >>76074500.>find a phylactery(in the form of a necklace) somewhere and a note about the lich it was taken from>some hobgoblins took it to blackmail the lich into working with them>decide to return it in exchange for him not helping them>my character, the evil & mentally unstable GOOlock gets to hold the phylactery because no one else wants anything to do with it>constant struggle to not put it on>finally get to the lich's hideout>decide I'm going to leave it to chance if I put it on>flip a coin>heads up I put it on, tails I don't>tails>ask the GM, after ever with the lich is resolved and my character doesn't put it on, could he tell me what happened if he did>he agrees>end up returning it>GM said he would have found an excuse to kind of pause, tell me I'm now possessed by the and give me the lowdown on what he knows/can do>then have me play as the lich in my characters bodyI would have absolutely murdered all of them.
>>76075078My college games club is well...based in the college so technically I'm not allowed to just refuse people or kick them out, they have to break a rule.
>>76075124>rule 1: no furries>rule 2: NO FURRIES
>>76075124You could simply tell him you don't think the character is a good fit for the table, and help him come up with something different?Of course that would assume that you didn't just make this up for internet points
>>76075124you could have just told him no to "i wanna play a fursona"you're a doormat GM and now the other players have to suffer through furshit, good job.
>>76075078jesus stop falling for bait
>>76074352Do you want to be good with weapons?DexterityDo you want to cast better magic?wisdomDo you want to hate yourself?Strength
>>76075145I can't do that>>76075161Well when I agreed to let him make the character I didn't think it would be so awkward, I didn't think he'd be playing a literal monkey like come the fuck on who the hell could have predicted that, I thought it was gonna be like a wolf man or something which idc about
So we determined in the last thread that dick size is 1/2 of CON score. So then of the squishy classes, which one is best for a femboy?
>>76075020What the others said. If you stack buffs it's usually one self buff, and some other shared buff spells or auras that come from the rest of the party.>>76075101>Overlord is inspired by autistic jap mmosThat is the case for the majority of isekai and fantasy anime, but Overlord is blatantly and and admittedly inspired by the author's time playing 3.5 more than anything else.
>>76074352yes, you are still a ranger.
>>76075020Older editions could beA lot of spells in 5th edition are limited by Concentration, you can only have one spell that requires concentration going at a time
>>76075211>high CHA warlock with a solid 7 inchesToo bad my GOOlock is completely uninterested in sex. And so am I in the context of D&D.
>>76075197Okay cool, you can still tell him the character isn't a good fit and offer to help him make a new one. Unless you have a club policy that says you have to be a little bitch
Is earthbind more of an earth spell or an air spell?
>>76075237>not playing a sissy warlock with a 4-inch clitty, whose patron is a succubus who makes him get dicked down by orcs and other big monsters in exchange for an ever-growing amount of powerFair enough but you're not doing it how I'd do it.
>>76075331Yes, you're a faggot and I'm not.
>>76075343Being straight is fucking gay though. Imagine being so obsessed with another man's dick that you let it determine whether or not you're going to have sex with him.
>>76075331give the succubus a cock and have her do the dicking herself and we've got a deal
>>76075365>Imagine being so obsessed with another man's dick that you let it determine whether or not you're going to have sex with him.The fact that it's man period makes it a deal breaker. And in the context of D&D I prefer zero sex. I'm not there to beat off with my nerd friends. But you do you man.
>>76075211>Gnome artificer with 16 con
>>76075331>>76075371INEEDMOREMOOOOOOOOOREIM GONNA COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM
>>76075371Obviously she can grow one and do it herself too. When he's really good she gives him a CON bonus and lets him fuck her too.>>76075398I'm just screwing around. I can't imagine doing an actual ERP D&D campaign.
>>76075331Good idea.>>76075371Great idea.
>>76075337Good subclass choice btw. Gloom stalker is famous for being amazing, but swarmkeeper looks like a lot of fun with the updated ranger rules.
If monsters don't drop gold and weapons in this game then how am I supposed to get better equipment?
>Attending weekly college sessions>I’m a level 5 forge cleric of Hephaestus >we do a dungeon that is clearing dragon rats from some crazy wizard’s basement>weak individually dealing 2 damage with breath weapons but there are like 20 at once with each encounter.>our wizard uses burning hands as expected >the damned rats are fire immune>cast spirit guardians>every rat dies in 15 foot radius even if they make their save>lasts 10 minutes>trivialise the entire dungeon by running around and obliterating all rats around me in holy fire.
>>76075331>>76075371But with love, with love!
>>76075451Are you the Overlord guy or the Swarmkeeper?You loot humanoids, do missions for people with money, find treasure or steal the stuff you want.
>>76075469Yes, over time she falls in love with him and realizes that people matter and goes from CE to NG.
>>76075451you beg your DM for money

>>76075439I've never done an ERP game, but I can imagine doing it with the right group. At this point though I don't even have a normal game.
>>76075211Should be 1d6 + CON mod1d4 if you're a manlet
>Players excited to finally learn the grand mysteries of this setting, such as how did gods become gods, and where do dragons come from>I'm still not sure what the answers to these questions are>Time is running short
>>76075614I would rather have no group than an ERP group.
Greatswords are the nest martial weapon there is and that's a fact
>>76075626>he doesn't know midgits are hung
>DM does milestole leveling>5 sessions in and were still lvl 1
>>76075565Yes, it's true. Mercy will cost you
>>76075629Think of something your players can achieve with epic difficulty since they may want to usurp a god
>>76075626Can we add an optional rule for your dick losing up to a couple inches if you get really fat and getting bigger if you go ottermode?
>>76075637It might be the nest, but glaives are the best.
>>76074985you're missing the fact that he's not LOOKING he's asking YOU to look. also a rogue looking like a rogue is fuggin retard tier
>>76075635And that's fine. What I want is a good group, one I could have fun with regardless of what we're playing. I'm a total degenerate though, so I'd go for it if I had the chance.
>>76075644Only someWe made our deep gnome roll for size, mf had crazy mondo stallion dick
>>76075565>this has references to order of the stick in itit's a based kind of cringe
Need an opionion here guys:Playing a Bard/Warlock, Currently Bard 3 (Glamour) and Warlock 4 (Fey Tome)Where should I go from here? Thinking of going full into Warlock.
Is there any class that's good at reliable/at-will AoE damage? It doesn't have to be 100% unlimited but at least more free than using spell slots to do damage to multiple people at once.
>>76075445Thanks, this will be my second campaign I'll be joining as a player. The campaign I'm currently playing is as a drow elf monk with way of the kensei and the way of the ascended dragon. So I'm practically new.
>>76075713>your player comes in with art that looks like this>says it's his character>refers to the character as "he"Do you allow it?
>>76073953once I realized the party retard would follow anyone who was doing anything by immediately doing what they did I started having a little fun by leading him as astray as possible then abandoning him. he should have died a dozen time for being too brainless to not follow my PCs, but he was the DMs pet so he never managed to actually die.
>>76075657The plot of my game is ALREADY becoming a god. In my setting, there is a finite number of divinity in the world that needs to be recycled each time a god dies. Each time it happens, ideally a new god takes his place through a convoluted process that involves getting approvement from other gods. Factually, more and more divinity gets lost through the centuries, which leads to the world becoming a shithole.Their question is how the first gods came to be, since they obviously couldn't follow that exact path.
>>76075720Kind of depends on what you're going for, ya? Like what do you want to get out of not?
>>76075748No. Weebshit not allowed.
>>76075773Easy. Eventually, the gods use the remaining divinity to reboot the setting and become the first of the next cycle.
I just realized the Clockwork Sorcerer could have an Origin Spell list that looks like This:>Armor of Agathys, Protection from evil and good>Aid, Lesser Restoration>Dispel Magic, Counterspell>Polymorph, Summon Construct>Greater Restoration, Wall of ForceAre people sure that this isn't better than Divine Soul Sorcerer or Shadow Sorcerer? Cause getting access to all of this without costing you is very powerful. I know they don't get Spiritual Weapon or Spirit Guardians or the Hound of Ill Omen, but this is...quite good.
>>76075786Supporting the party, mostly. I'd like to focus on damage or not.
>>76075451>then how am I supposed to get better equipment?what makes you think you're supposed to do this?
>>76073674A few of the guys at work want to try dnd and have me dm for them, they’ve never played before. My past experiences with dming I usually bite off more than I can chew and use an overly complicated module or sloppily made homebrew world. What’s a good simple adventure for totally new players? I know there’s a few out there but I’m not sure which ones are good.
>>76075451>don’t drop their weaponsDoes your dm just have goblin’s Spears and swords poof into air as soon as they die?
>>76075645if this isn't bait he's doing it wrong. what did he say when you expressed your concerns?
I think I'd be into text-based ERP D&D with like, a DM and two players, but I think with real people it would suck unless they're people I'm extremely comfortable with.
>>76075810>not allowing weebshit into game so you can marginalize and then stomp it the fuck out until the player quits over you killing their waifu
>>760758921. give them premade character sheets2. run A Most Potent Brew3. invite the non-fucktards back for a real campaign
>>76075728What the other guy said.
>>76074938>Astral Self whose astral self is an exo skeleton they're slowly building>Dragon monk with a flame thrower and a set of retractable mechanical wings>Shadow monk with a stealth suit that casts their spells and a teleporter>Sun Soul with lasers>All monks have some sort of rocket boots or speed drug that grant their extra speed and step of the wind abilities >Stunning Strike is a paralysing toxin or electric shock>Unarmoured Defence is some sort of nanoweave armour or a permanent force fieldI dig it, lot of potential in it
>>76075910not him but my DM had players' items do that because one player was so butthurt that I said my rogue was going to keep his magic staff when he died he made the DM make rules prohibiting touching any other players' stuff, even after death. He was the kind of faggot who had a twin brother in the wings for when he died.
>>76074756>druid>not mounted on a dire wolf>not grabbed by a giant eagleIs she genuinelly retarded?
>>76075932I too want an ERP campaign, but there are a few problems.>The people who ERP are fucking weirdos, and I want nothing to do with them.>It's extremely unlikely that our fetishes will line up, and they're not into something disgusting like futa>I want a campaign that's not solely about ERP, it's just a thing that happens.
>>76075969why? after you have 4 or 5 spears and 12 short swords, what does it matter? nobody is going to pay you real gold for goblin tier equipment.
>>76075728What >>76075853 said with Artillerist. You can get a fairly long-lasting flamethrower easily, along with Acid Splash and Sword Burst for some AoE cantrips, which you can also bolster with the 5th level feature.
>>76075818Catch: each time there's less divinity to go around, so fewer gods.
>>76076022I want an ERP campaign but I've yet to find two players who can even RP normally.
Friendship ended with r20.Now foundry is my friend.
>>76076059One of my players spergs out every time I mention foundry, saying it's unwieldy and requires you to do a shitload of busywork before you begin playing. Is that true?
>>76076053F-list has decent community of /tg/ expatriates.
>>76075932Sadly I feel this would only be possible if I could conjure some pocket dimension with perfectly constructed avatars for the occasion. Otherwise you get all the problems the other anon described.
>>76073738Why would you want that?
>>76074756hot>>76076018yes, that makes it even hotter.
>>76073674After many postpones we're finally playing DnD tonightIt'll be my first experience and I'll be playing a Wizard. I've done as much reading as I can on the class up n down and understand almost all the mechanics.What do you guys recommend for a school of magic? We'll have a party of 5 if that matters
>>76075720>multiclasserYou should go into a grave.
>>76076148>What do you guys recommend for a school of magic?one that can deal with the game getting cancelled.
Thinking about trying beastmaster ranger since Tasha's fixes some of my biggest problems with it. Is there any fun or optimal stuff I should consider? Since the new beasts use wisdom to attack, I was leaning towards grabbing druidic fighting style and just start whacking shit with a stick, maybe start as fighter for that con prof and access to dueling too
>>76076148Sounds like you haven't read spell lists.You're not ready. Don't play a wizard. No, you won't have time.
Redpill me on artillerist. How fun is it? I'm trying to decide between it and the new UA Dragon Monk, but I'll probably pick artillerist since I'm always begging my DM for UA shit
>>76076177Ive read all the Wizard's spells for each level, thats not an issue.I was just wondering what you guys thought would be the most fun to run with for your first run, or one that would be the least problematic.Something that covers a lot of ground for a team.Its non-negotiable, so if you'd like to give some advice i'd appreciate it. If not, feel free to ignore the posts.
>>76074985This is actually great advice, I don't even how I managed to miss it myself since I usually search up a variety of wordings. Though the most promising results were for satyr thief, not assassin. Anyway, thank you! (Though there's still no explanation why I shouldn't tell people offering tiddy satyrs that it's not what I asked for).>>76075675True and not true. I did look and am looking myself, but I also asked you guys to look in case there's someone kind hearted enough to help me. You know, in case someone happened to have such a picture lying around.Also, do you really think you're going to get jobs thst require a rogue's talents while disguised behind 7 layers of irony in your alternate identity of the cobbler's daughter who practices crochet and folk dancing or whatever?
>roll a nat 20>DM says it doesn't hit
>Want to make a forest hero not-link.>Druid? Nah. Don't like shapeshifting.>Fighter? Sounds boring.>Oath of the Ancients Paladin. That would work, but lets keep going.>Ranger would be perfect, but I don't wanna use a bow.>2h Fighting Ranger exists. >Sweet>Beastmaster exists, just like in 3.5e, but it doesn't suck this time. >Fuck yes give me a goddamn hunting owl.>Check RPGbot, there is a split between Beastmaster and Primal Companion, with the latter being the only way the pet isn't tacked on dogshit.Do most GMs run with Primal Companion? It's from Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything. I've ALWAYS wanted to play a beastmaster-like character who is in the thick of it fighting alongside their companion rather then being a bowman who makes the pet do all the work.
>>76076022>>76076053These. I've tried looking for an ERP game but some of the shit people are into...>I just want a normal game>with good players>and 18+ themes to spice it upWhy is this so hard
>>76076211Abjuration or Divination.
>>76076240Well, your DM is fucking stupid. A natural 20 automatically hits a target no matter its AC.
>>76075821The only people who think the clockwork sorcerer isn't stronger then the divine soul are in denial. Hell, the Aberrant sorcerer can get hex.
>>76076078I don't think so no.With all the mods out there you can customise it to be very easy to use for players. You don't even need to port forward or anything, lighting is so much better. I no longer see a point to r20. Ofc just my oppinions though.
Marials are neat
>>76076240>"lol, it was an illusion" Jim, the horrible DM.you got cucked son
>>76076240but a natural 20 always hits...what are u sayin...
>>76076255>>76076266>>76076283>>76076285I was attacking his DMpc
>>76075842So on the one hand, going into Bard for one more level would get you another ASI but it would slow your warlock progression... But I think it might be worth it for the ASI.
>>76076248>Link>Not using bow>2h instead of sword & boardAre you SURE you know who you're talking about?
>>76076248Tasha's is very new, but the Primal Companions were largely designed as a way to balance out how unreliable Beastmaster animals could be. A Beast of Air would be ideal for representing falconry or a pet owl like that, since you can use your bonus action to have it scratch people as it swoops in before flying away, since it doesn't provoke opportunity attacks.
>>76076255>>76076266>>76076285>>76076304I was his DMpc
>>76076240>roll fort save>nat 20>...mmmm you still get stunned Why did he make me roll then?
>>76073953>be me, Storm barbarian. Sea bearing campaign. We find two lizardfolk enslaved to fight until they die, party manages to free them and add them to the crew. One of the lizardfolk, nicknamed Bloodsport loves combat. We bring him with us into combat. After enemies are dispatched he continues to try and attack our gunslinger. Party knocks him out, but gunslinger finishes him off. Turns out he was using a berserker ax. Some time later, my character is still holding a grudge over his death, have geass cast on me. Commanded to kill the gunslinger. Dont even try to fight it, and slaughter him.Tldr: I was the helpless situation
>>76076308Stats are fine, what would recommend for Feats/Spells?
So now that we can swap ASI's, what are the best classes for lizardfolkMonk/Ranger/Druid still?
>>76076354tl;dr: You don't know how to memetext.
>>76076309I'm playing not-Link, not Link. There is a difference. >>76076314Pet classes always seem to get the shaft. In pretty much every form of media. /an/ons suffer dearly for it. So I am glad just this once I might get a good one.
>>76076230>Also, do you really think you're going to get jobs thst require a rogue's talents while disguised behind 7 layers of irony in your alternate identity of the cobbler's daughter who practices crochet and folk dancing or whatever?Any job the requires the subtlety of a rogue will likely have either contact posters in shady areas or actual contacts that find you based on merit. If I need someone sneaky I'm not sure I'll want to hire the guy dressed as a shady criminal in broad daylight
>>76076394It's serviceable. It will eat up your bonus actions, but the damage alongside your ranger's attacks should be solid, and you can easily revive the pet with a spell slot if something happens to it.
>>76076383The only classes that really get anything from their racials are full Dex ones for unarmoured defence and monks for the extra bite damage early. Other than that their abilities don't really directly tie into class.
>>76076354Your character is a horrible person.
>>76076282Gishes are cooler and anyone who says shields are badass are wrong!
How do I build him, /5eg/?
>>76076415We clearly have different definitions for rogues.
>>76076208Catapult your flamethrower at the front mob in a pack and laugh as you grill them with your bonus attack.Pick replicate magic item: spell wrought tattoo: hex, and debuff your catapult target's dex if you get a surprise round.Oh, and remember to get elemental adapt: fire. You have a flamethrower and fireball after all.I've been wanting to play one for months, but I'm having fun with my current character so I'm trying to not get "grass is greener" syndrome.It looks like a good ranged damage dealer, but I can't help but wonder "what if it had extra attack".
>>76076308What have you got?
>>76076363Meant >>76076532 for you.
>>76076500Unironically Hexblade. Powerful bat, lasers, and servitude to a bizarre dark entity.
>>76076494>Probably uses the spell shieldYah whatever poser
>>76076461To be fair we we all there for separate reasons, not any form of friendship or anything like that. Sea-elf pissed off the wrong Dwarf man. Bloodsport was unconscious, we could have helped him
>>76076648Reflective Wards > Actual ShieldsIts funny when the sword hits the barrier and goes *tink*.
can I light campfires with greenflame blade?
>>76076713Ask your DM.
>>76076626>darkI still haven't seen a reasonable explanation as to why it was wrong, other than everyone being a sore, incompetent loser. But yeah, hexblade fits very well, maybe a dip into conquest or devotion paladin for the purity aspect.>>76076695I prefer having both, honestly. Although I do hate that S&B EK builds are pretty much better off goind shadow blade unless they drop the S part for PAM and spear. At least spears are based.
>...target a object...This is fucking gay.
>>76076744>a [vowel]It's fucking gay and you're fucking illiterate.
>>76074738Jesus Christ what's this abomination? it's so good it's even better than not being disabled and in fact it improves even non disabled people
>>76075565>spare an enemy>DM takes away all my gold and weapons
>>76075565>HOW DO YOU WANT TO DO THIS?!? [in other words]I hate Critical Role.
>>76076802literally rent free
>Tmw classes don't have variable ability scores to depend>TMW you'll be never play an INT Monk artificer or SAD Cleric PaladinSuch is life
If I'm starting at level 10 is it reasonable to say my bladesinger was an ex mafia leader still his group was destroyed? This way I can justify being reasonably powerful without playing the generic snobby wizard from a college or super fancy place
>>76076730I jest Shields are actually really cool. I like combining them with Shield spells too. Gishes are actually pretty cool no matter what tools they are using. Sword and Board, Polearms, Bows, Guns. Anything its all good.
>>76076730I would just go Aasimar race, probably Scourge, rather than multiclassing. Solid ability score matchup and the idea of "destroying all evil with overwhelming holy force" suits the concept.
>>76076820How the hell is it rent free? If a thing comes up it's not living in his head, it's being shoved in his face and he's being forcibly reminded of it.
>>76074641pretty cool, I like it.
>>76076860>Seething about critical role over a vaguely similar line from a shitty christcuck webseries that came out a year before critical role>Not rent freePeak cope
Bald characters are cool.

NecroWiz is a doctor. Uses animated dead assist with triage. Skelington Nurse
>>76073674TQ - No. Never had anyone want to use them. Plus in a setting as rife with magic as DND is...why would this be a thing? Just like in Cyberpunk or shadow run. You wouldn't really see people confined to wheelchairs for long term, because they have the technology to simply fix your condition. Just as how significantly advanced technology can remove problems, magic an to. Though I guess for short term convalescence it might be a thing.
I am trying to get back into playing D&D since stopping back in highschool over a decade ago, and using the site Roll20 to find a group. Currently, I am placing an application in to a group, waiting a few days to see if I hear anything back and then moving on if I don't. Should I just be shotgun blast applying to groups, or is the way I'm doing it right? Also, I am getting back into my favorite part about playing and thats thinking of character concepts. How much do DM's appreciate non-edgy back stories, or do they not care much? I've thought up three different characters so far, and plan to think up one of each major class to start.
I'm going to point something really fucking basic about D&D that should be obvious as fuck to anyone, and anyone that uses a wheel chair (I've had to for a while since I hurt my back a while back, I can walk, but I still need a wheel chair occasionally) should stop being thin skinned fuck heads. D&D is a world filled with magic, and unless you do not have legs (were cut off or burnt off) magic should and could fix anyone. LITERALLY. I mean for God's sake magic can animate statues. If it can animate even inanimate objects and make it, then it should be able to create all sorts of ways to fix a paralyzed set of legs that are a birth defect. If it's anything other than a birth defect regeneration can fix it. Regeneration can fi having your legs completely removed, or even having your heart torn out. So yeah... there is no NEED for wheelchair rules. This is fucking stupid and anyone that uses them needs to stop playing the game.
>>76077272It's also boring.
>>76077112The meteor thing doesn’t surprise me, because it’s hard to get a true sense of that’s spells scale unless you have a town to drop it on. The wizard just sounds like an arsehat. I’d honestly end the campaign at that point or just do what >>76077112 said.
>>76077272Yep. Even in some weird case where you were cursed by a god to be incapable of ever having or using legs again for whatever reason, there are still far more interesting magical solutions you could use before resorting to a wheelchair. And if you can't afford those, you also won't be able to afford a quality enough wheelchair for adventuring, so you should get a mule instead.Wheelchairs are for games like Shadowrun where there are character roles like Hackers and Riggers that don't need to run or climb most of the time, and cybernetic replacements are expensive enough where someone might get stuck with using the low-tech alternatives.
>>76077336I could maybe, maybe see it being justified as an accident on the part of a Sorcerer. Not on the player, but if the character wakes up one morning and feel like they can cast a new fire spell and go outside to try it out, and then they wind up underestimating both the range and scale of the spell, that could easily blow up something they didn't mean to. That'd be a really low-Int low-Wis Sorcerer to pull that off, but I could see it happening. Wizard has 0 potential excuse.
Does anything break if we replace Eldritch Knight "War Magic" and Blood Hunter "Mystic Frenzy" with the Bladesinger extra attack ability? It wouldn't grant an extra attack, just let the classes replace one attack with a cantrip.
>>76077398It's how it should have been in the beginning.
>>76077398Nothing would "break," it would be a stronger option but Eldritch Knight is kind of underpowered as is.
>>76077398You're literally killing casters with that buff. Stop the madness.
>>76077398It's fair for EK at levels 5-10, though it arguably becomes too powerful at 11th level where they can make 3 attacks. That's 2 attacks alongside a 3 damage dice cantrip, which really starts to outstrip what other fighters are capable of, particularly in the case of SCAG cantrips.
Does pic related solve 90% of issues?
If a player was running an Urchin character from the City of Brass in the Elemental Plane of Fire, as a DM, would you let the small mouse that comes with the background have Fire Resistance or Fire Immunity? It's otherwise a normal mouse stat-wise.
>>76077374>Wizard has 0 potential excuse
>>76077476I'd say "talk to the other players like adults" is over half but that's a high second.
>>76077476That and "talk to people", yes.
>>76077489I'd toss it immunity just to avoid feelbad if it gets roasted for no good reason. Also could make a fun running gag.
>>76076802>letting your players control their character is shitical role
>Anon, make a Constitution check and a Dexterity (Performance) check
>>76077560What is "my wife every night" for 500, Alex?
>>76077520It's going with a fire genasi monk. I'm using the Ascendant Dragon subclass but it's reflavored as her manifesting her efreeti heritage. No mechanical changes, just I intend to only ever use Fire damage, Wings Unfurled is going to be a cyclone of cinders and flames instead of wings (again, no mechanical changes), and Aspect of the Wyrm will just be, I dunno, going Super Saiyan or something.
>>76077051Was it a long term game or one of those just a few sessions high level game?

What's your favourite new multi-class that uses a Tasha's subclass?
>>76077398GFB/BB + 2 extra attacks and the possibility of a bonus action attack from PAM or GW or whatever is a lot of damage. Especially when you consider action surge, since a regular EK can't use war magic twice in 1 turn due to the bonus action. If you think the DPR boost is fair, then do it by all means. But I would probably cap it at Cantrip + 1 Extra Attack
>>76077647I think it's more just obvious than anything. Not that that is inherently bad.
>>76077489What >>76077520 said. It can't serve as a scout in the same way as a familiar or anything, so that's more of a flavor and convenience change than anything.
>>76077667Name three examples. You literally cannot
>>76077687It's much larger than a goblin. Skaven black rats (the rat in the pic) is probably between 6 and 7 feet tall.
>>76077675kobold and goblin reflavored. Both work. Pick your poison.
>>76077526Stopping the flow of combat to mug at an imaginary, on two levels, camera is inane.
>>76077675No, now go play WFRPG
>>76077647Get ready to be asked if you would like to rage.
>>76077685Fey Wanderer and Trickery Cleric is a lot of fun so far.
>>76077719>Triton fathomless warlock (or any water-based race with almost any water-based subclass)>Dragonborn draconic sorcerer with the same ancestry for both>Goblin rogueCope
>>76077675Kinda. The Rokugan d20 books have stats for nezumi, and both the Scarred Lands and Midgard settings have ratfolk. If you're talking Forgotten Realms, though, you've got wererats, and that's about it.
What should I play once my EK inevitably dies in our current dungeon crawl? I'm mostly learning towards one of the new fighter subclasses and fey ranger because I'm hot for magical martials.
>>76077748>>76077785This helps. I'll see if I can try and get my DM to play along and let me have some fun. Thanks!>>76077741Image related.
>>76077725>not wanting to play as a tiny rat>muh black ratsdude you're being incredibly cringe.
>>76077768Gonna toss on Duergar Rune Knight. I thought it was an awesome combo, especially because you can get to Huge size at level 3, but the passives for the runes either totally overlap with Duergar or you won't have the stats for them. Darkvision 120 ft? Poison resistance? Come on.
>>76077811Try Soulknife Rogue and then tell me how it is. I really like the look of it because I like that you can boost skills (and later attack rolls) but not expend the dice if they don't turn a failure into a success, so it's perfect resource efficiency.

>>76077897Probably Infernal and Celestial.
>>76077916thank you, tasha.
>>76077748I fucking HATE shifters. Flavor is shit, official height and appearances are shit (they don't satisfy my forry side or cute female side, unless you go full weeb and make catgirls I guess,but the shifting craps over that), transformation is videogame shit instead of Shapechange like werewolves, where it's almost purely cosmetic and fluff: a very good ribbon.Honestly, shifters are the Hexblades of the races for me: shit, restricting flavor that is at the same time bland as oatmeal. Thankfully, I'm the DM so I let my players refluff whatever they want. I actually refflufed the shifter race into a variant of Simic Hybrids: experiments made by wizards by magically crossbreding genes of different races and magical beasts, fully lab/vat grown.
>>76077947Why would an occult dark arts nerd know celestial? What the fuck are you talking about?
Has anyone here ever played the original Favored Soul UA from like 2015?

Call me retarded, but RAW, the Fey Wanderer's Otherworldly Glamour feature just allows you to use Wisdom on top of your Charisma, right? You could minimally dump it and still be fine.
>>76078070Why do that when you just dip in Nature Cleric and go max WIS and CHA?
>>76078070rangers dump WIS all the time, yes.
>>76078025I wonder about that.
>>76078080That's funny because players dump ranger.

It bothers me that you can't use Two weapon fighting with rapiers without the Dual Wielder feat. The classic setup for dagger and rapier needs a whole feat? Why not just change TWF so that the Bonus Attack can be made with a Light weapon in your off-hand, regardless of what's in your main hand?
/5eg/, how do I find a game to join that's actually good? All my recent attempts to find a game through game stores went badly and I want to get in on an eberron game>>76078117scrapped all the stream content from the look of it. might have removed some other stuff as well
>>76074205He's got no hooves though.
>>76078168There's very few feats that do literally anything for a Moon Druid without being completely worthless trash like Linguist.
so if I'm a storm sorcerer and I cast the first level spell shield, does that mean I can use tempestuous magic to fly away as a bonus action or can you not use bonus actions on enemy turns
>>76078204you can only take bonus actions on your turn
>>76076324Cause you'd bitch if you just got stunned without a roll
>>76078201Sounds like a perfect opportunity to take Tavern Brawler.Or you could take War Caster, just like you've done for every caster you've played before. ;^D
>>76078172Because attacking with a greatsword and then shanking a fucker right after with a shiv is stupid.I'd allow rapier with a dagger at my table though, and any sane DM would, because rapier+dagger (1d8+1d4) is the exact same damage as double scimitars (2d6).
>>76078248Not him but it would still have to be made with a one-handed weaponOr just give rapier a special property that lets it TWF with daggers
>>76078172I'm inclined to agree with >>76078248 in just making an exception specifically for rapier + dagger. Otherwise nobody would do rapier + dagger, because rapier + shortsword would be better, and nobody would use two shortswords again if they could help it.
Gameday boys, hopefully today I get the answer to the campaign's biggest question: Is my bugbear chad going to plow the goblin who has a crush on him?
>>76078298Can't he just order her to, based on their racial hierarchy? Or does he have to bully a Hob into issuing the command?
>>76078248>because rapier+dagger (1d8+1d4) is the exact same damage as double scimitars (2d6).Rape + Dagger will give you a dpr bump over double scims once (if) you get extra attack
>>76078341>RapeNO, DM! DON'T LET HIM RAPE ME!!!
>in a fight at level 5>I've been downed 3 timesbros....
>>76078424Jeez, anon, stop getting beat up so much, it's embarrassing.
>>76078430I can't help it, I'm a squishy warlock and my dm keeps critting me
>>76078424Worse shit that ever happened to me that wasn't just death was when I got crit for like 50 fucking damage by a Roper's bite at like lv6And that was the one and only time the DM decided he wanted to use the Injury rule and I ended up with broken ribs that fucked up my concentration checks for the entire rest of that dungeon
>>76078177Ech. How come?
>>76078452this is the stupidest fight everwe're using roll 20 and we literally both keep rolling 20s, me to get back up and him to put me back down. I hate it so much
>>76077262Shotgun will get you there faster, but what you're doing is polite
>>76078341>Rape + Dagger will give you a dpr bump over double scims once (if) you get extra attackWell thankfully dual wielding is shit for anyone but rogue anyway so it doesn't change anything.
>>76078341>>76078507Yeah. The 1 extra average damage you get from using a rapier+dagger instead of two shortswords once you have extra attack isn't going to help that much when dual-wielding in general already drops off at that point.
>>76076273>Aberrant Mind gets HexBetter Blaster than Draconic Bloodline? Cause you could Hex into Scorching Ray now.
>>76078317Not living in a tribal situation, so it's down to his questionable social skills.
>>76078560Though I guess Divine Soul Sorcerer could get Spirit Shroud then Scorching Ray something too.
>>76078560>>76078626Hex would be more efficient, particularly if an Aberrant Mind can cast it for only 1 Sorcery point.
>>76078655I guess Divine Soul would out damage it cause it scales better and also has access to spiritual weapon while the Aberrant Mind is more consistent and less costly.
>>76078655>If you cast the spell using sorcery points, it requires no verbal or somatic components, and it requires no material components, unless they are consumed by the spell.Geez, I forgot about this. I forgot they can use SP to cast the spells not only at a discount, but also as if they were cast with Subtle Spell too.
>>76073735Pretty much this. At the very least, level 10 and onwards martials should be performing feats similar to spells of a similar level. Basically when a half caster gets access to something like fireball and haste, pure martials should have something similar. The fact monk doesn’t get haste and a few others at the cost of ki really fucking pisses me off.
Can you Twin Spiritual Weapon?
>>76078724No.>>76078713I forgot about that part too. They can cast Hold Monster as if it was subtle spelled and using Sorcerery points too.
>>76078724Let's read and see what it says>Twinned Spell>When you cast a spell that targets only one creatureoops!
>>76077965>It's this hard to reflavour a race>He thinks WotC would give full shape change as a racialAnon, I...
>>76077997Sperging out over something without spending a couple of seconds thinking about it is autism
>>76078768Changelings get unrestricted shapechange and extra skills as a race feature. Shapechange to the werewolf hybrid form isn't ANYWHERE near as useful.
>>76078735Ooooohhh.... I just realized that they could cast Synaptic Static for 5 Sorcery Points and its under subtle spell...Huh.
>>76078768Also I explicitly said I am reflavoring the race.
>>76078735*casts uncounterable Heightened Hold Monster on you*heh...pathetic
>>76078714I don't think there's enough options in 5e to make homogenising the classes by just giving them spells not feel like shit. I wouldn't want my monk to cast haste on himself for the same reason I don't want -5/+10 feats for every single weapon.
>>76078792>unrestricted shapechangeIt's basically alter self/Disguise self. You're asking for what's basically wildshape
Anon can you stop powergaming? We don't spend our entire life reading DnD shit. Plus we just leveled up so I didn't even know I had that feature. Just chill out man it's not that deep it's a fucking game.
>>76078832Werewolf shapechange doesn't give any noticeable stats, except something like 12 + dex nat armor, but that isn't necessary.Lychantropy is what changes stat to a fixed number, anon. Not Shapechange.>Shapechanger. The werewolf can use its action to polymorph into a wolf-humanoid hybrid or into a wolf, or back into its true form, which is humanoid. Its statistics, other than its AC, are the same in each form. Any equipment it is wearing or carrying isn't transformed. It reverts to its true form if it dies.I'll repeat myself for good measure. I only want the hybrid form, not the wolf form or the nat AC calculation.
if I roll a 23 to hide and an enemy monster rolls 23 on perception who wins?
Paladin Bros. How to introduce an undead hating ancients paladin that isn’t a tree hugging hippy in a mostly undead setting. I know I know but I just love that restraining divinity.
>>76078858Meets beats. They met your stealth DC so they see you.
>>76077969>why the fuck would angels have anything written or spoken about the secrets of fiends they're mortal enemies that doesn't make any sense>why the fuck would someone interested in al-Qaeda look at the CIA?
>>76078858Stealth checks essentially set the DC for detection, and because meeting the DC counts as a success, the monster would successfully notice you.
>>76078768Really, when it comes to the right forms it wouldn't be. If you could only turn into a humanoid form, a beast form, and a hybrid form, then that's already very minimal utility. You could use the hybrid form as a disguise of sorts, but it's like walking around town in a gorilla suit. The only real potential utility depends entirely on the animal form in question, and if it's just a medium sized beast like a wolf and your stats don't change from it, then it's not even remotely as useful as something like Wildshape, since you can't use it to fit into small places, and people aren't as likely to leave it be compared to a bird or a housecat.
>>76077685Tasha's is str8 retarded, so null
>>76078874ancients paladin is fun to play in like an Arthurian style instead of plate druid lite.That's what they are in my setting pretty much, like questing knights with some weird fae powers, not outright nature based.
>>76077638I'll never forget "like a baby's arm holding an apple".
>>76078905Surely there must be something you like in there.
>>76078832What werewolves have isn't remotely similar to wildshape in function. They don't get any temp HP from it, and it can only make a single shitty bite attack.I'm not sure what you think wildshape does if you think just assuming the appearance of an animal is what makes it overpowered.
>>76078714I think they're kinda going for that with the new fighter subclasses, especially psi warrior. It literally gets a spell as its capstone, and before that gets supernatural abilities that are basically spells power-wise.
Level 3 is the patrician starting levelAnyone that starts lower just wants to waste people's timeThe only excuse is if you're doing a more down to earth campaign
>>760804781 and 2 are good introductions for people who've never played. Even so, I have a premise in mind where starting from 2 or even 1 would be good to set up their rise from a low place.
