Did your character ever commit a suicide?
>>
>>79732750
Because to cope with their existence some people consider their disability no less valid than normal people and thus want their fictional characters to represent that part of their identity
>>
Once. There was a certain alternate dimension thing we had to enter and the only way to reach it was by committing suicide. My character reluctantly pulled the trigger of his crossbow, then happily slayed the otherwordly evildoers before going home and taking a well-deserved long-rest in the basement of a whorehouse.

reptile bros, how do I make a strength focused martial Lizardfolk character that can also benefit from their natural armor?
I'd really rather not ONLY put points in dexterity for natural armor, and ignore constitution
Sucks that there's no big heavy weapons with finesse

Suicide-suicide? Nope. Holding the door against insurmountable enemies? Charging against overwhelming forces? Sacrificing myself so others may live? Aplenty times.

>Did your character ever commit a suicide?
No, but I legit had a character join the villain of the campaign halfway through the story once. I was playing a Fighter and wasn't having fun constantly not being able to do anything worthwhile in a party of casterfags. Can't beat em, join em and all that.
>>
>>79732780
Your natural armour is Dex based and that's the end of it. If you want to be strength based and have good natural armour then you need to pump strength as your main stat and boost dex for natural armour. No way around that

you dont really need dex if you use heavy armor as like a paladin or fighter, but you can get fucked out of ranged options that way

>was playing a Fighter and wasn't having fun constantly not being able to do anything worthwhile in a party of casterfags
Many such cases. I was a monk in a party of a fighter, a third caster (AT) and the rest full casters casters. At one point I just sat around in a section where we encountered a giant library and everyone who could cast spells was allowed to learn any spell of a level they could cast. Wondered if it was worth it when the fighter died and picked Cleric for their new character. Eventually ended up picking a fight with an NPC that the DM made clear was out of our league. Went down but not like a bitch at least.

Ended up rolling a fighter anyway.

Ask your DM if he can let you use strength instead of dex, since you'll be dumping dex if that's the case.
>>
>>79732780
Ask your DM to make a racial feat that gives you Tortle equivalent armor. Flat 17AC, no DEX bonus. You don’t need to take it off, so no fatigue penalties, but it also doesn’t improve.

>>79732750
Personally I can't really answer why you'd play a Character who's handicapped or heavily physically impaired or disabled. I'm not disabled, so I can't really speak on that from all of their perspectives. I have heard that many disabled people like seeing themselves in fictional stories and games, so for them more power to them. I've also seen many who are disabled say they would never consider playing a disabled character because they prefer to play a person without disabilites. So its probably just a personal thing for them.
But I can at some level speak on why its fine to play a PC who's transexual or transgendered, that at least has no mechanical changes to that PC. If you feel like playing a PC who just happens to identify as a male and was born female or vise versa, that'd be fine because no one would care as it doesn't directly affect your PC's actions in the game or what may occur throughout said game. What players and GMs at the table really care about is what your PC's actually doing and how invested are they in the setting and story. Your PC's sex or gender identity is not important to that. So I wouldn't care if a player came to me with a PC who is trans.

It always DOES affect the character's actions though. I'm here to play DnD, not be a support group for someone's gender-identity crisis. Go pay for an actual therapist.

You've had some bad experiences in that case, but its not always the case. You can have a PC who just changed gender or sex pre-campaign and they've always acted the way they have been since. If your PC's gender, sex, or sexuality is the most important aspect of the PC that's a problem with the PC and should be discussed with the player.
>>
>>79732978
>Your PC's sex or gender identity is not important to that.
Have you talked to someone with gender-identity issues? Their gender identity is important to EVERYTHING they do, even when it shouldn't be. I'm glad your tolerant and all that, but this sheer level of ignorance about the topic makes me think you've never actually lived the bullshit you're spouting.

>>79733074
Again, as said before, always speak with your players about their PCs before they set foot in your game. If the players PC is completely identified by their gender, sex, or sexuality you need to sit down with them and talk about making some adjustments. This is no different from a hyper stereotypical bard PC who just wants to screw everything that walks and is of the opposite sex, and that's their whole character. That's dumb, and needs to be tackled before the game starts.
>>
>>79733200
There is no "tackling" the issue with those kinds of people because "tackling" the issue is "attacking" them, and then say bye bye to whatever venue/website/wherever you're hosting you game as they ban you for being a bigot.

The D&D community, unfortunately, right now is filled with actual fags and trannies. It's so fucking hard to find a group full of normal people instead of cretins claiming to be non-binary who've named themselves after stupid shit like greek deities or scented candle flavours. Like >>79733234 said, trying to get them to act like normal people is considered "attacking" them and most places rely too much on the revenue the fags bring in to be able to afford to lose them, so instead you get fucked over for just trying to enjoy a normal fun game with normal fun people.

At some point in the campaign he was just getting hit so much with the miseryporn that he contemplated it for a moment (is not fun roleplaying someone with crippling depression anons, I play this to escape my reality).

>You never know when someone may ask for some info in their past.
Nobody will ask if you had a cock when you were born, nobody in any game will ask about your character's relationship with its parents, the most fringe thing I've seen two characters talk about is food they like, and I'm pretty sure they just said what the player liked (filet mignon and pizza). The only way this will be brought up is if both players are deliberately fishing for this kinda thing, and chances are everyone at the table is some degree of troon that is masturbating to how non-binary they are.

What’s a fun multicclass option for an armourer artificer. I’m trying to remain versatile as possible because we are just a 3 man party.
I’m leaning on a wizard for the extra spell and slots. Fighter piqued my interest but is a 3 level commitment if I want a big enough pay off. Theifs fast hands gives me a constant bonus action use but the items are pretty shit at that point in the game. The new subclasses look like a fun dip. Especially the prisma school with the bonus action dash+disengage combo.
Punching a bunch of fools without attack of opportunity is decent no?

Why are spells so temporary in D&D? Almost all of them are concentration, and the ones that aren't are almost exclusively "cast every day for a year" or similar.

I get that you'd want major magical powers to be plot-driven, but it seems like it severely caps something like, say, magical bindings for prisoners where you might want to hold them for a few days, or something.

1. 5e is a dungeoneering game. You won't be back in that dungeon again. You do not play defence. You're always moving about, so making permanent installments (though there are some spells that do so, some requiring money) isn't really its design.
2. It's to cut the martial-caster divide and provide some reason you'd actually want to protect the casters in a game where casters have more AC than martials.

There are still some solutions. Wall of stone for example easily ought to be able to hold some prisoners for a while unless your DM is a dumb cunt.
>>
>>79735140
So casters become gods in every way compared to martials even earlier.
The way we are going pure martials are going to have to be half casters by default.
Just make fighter paladin. Mash smites and manoeuvres together, remove all mentions of divinity and replace with “physical prowess” and call it a day.

I've been working on the details of a city for my campaign for nearly a year now; I have over 100 characters pre-made with their own stories, affiliations, motivations, etc.

As part of this, and as support for a very mystery/political strife world, I want to give my players a physical corkboard with pins and string so they can do the classic detective conspiracy-board shtick and make it feel like they're adding to a growing understanding of the city back in their base.

How can I encourage them to use it over standard notes? What's a good way to make it feel like it's adding value to the game beyond just being a cool look?

No. You can only prepare wizard spells of which you're a high enough wizard level to cast

Make an inspiration reward system for solving shit using the board.

>>79735777
Targets. If something is affected by something, it's a target of that effect. Very clear.

Crawford can go fuck himself. If one of my player intentionally nerfs himself by playing a fucking sorcerer instead of any other full caster then the least I can do is allow the poor sod to twin fucking dragon's breath.
>>
>>79736221
There's nothing really wrong with twin dragon's breath, just that it isn't allowed RAW because it's multi-target. Even Crawford goes against RAW if it makes for a better experience but he's just there to tell you what the rules say.
>>
>>79736191
>>79736213
>>79736231
If the sorcerer casts dragon's breath on a fighter and the fighter promises not to actually use the breath weapon can you twin it?
>>
>>79736267
No, because the spell is still able to directly target someone else, even if you refuse to. (not through indirect means like firebolt could hurt someone by making a fire that then hurts someone, or a spell might allow someone to dash and take an attack they otherwise wouldn't be able to which would be targetting them with a non-magical attack)
>>
>>79736221
crawford's words are meant as a base, not as god's will
remember, you're playing a TTRPG. You can let things slide once in a while
I personally fucking despise DMs who to the letter enforce crawford's word 100% of the time. Some of it is fine when clarifying how things work but other times he needlessly restricts things, like how booming/green flame blade dont work on reach weapons (which is bullshit and I allow them to work when I DM)
>>
>>79736231
The embarrassing part is if Dragon's Breath allowed you to use the breathe weapon of say, a Brass Dragon Wyrmling, but changing the damage type to what you want and using your spell save DC in place of it, you'd be able to twin it.

Playing armorer artificer, probably gonna take metamagic adept at level 4 for some nice versatility
but I was wondering what viable multiclass options are there for armorer? I was thinking maybe a 1 level dip in fighter for martial proficiency and fighting style but I dunno
warlock seems nice, 2 level dip for a patron feature and invocations
Wizard and Sorc both seem obvious on paper but Wizard requires 2 level minimum investment, and while sorc gets their arcane origin at one level they don't get more sorcery points until second level
>>
>>79736378
>like how booming/green flame blade dont work on reach weapons (which is bullshit and I allow them to work when I DM)
It's a soft nerf to booming blade in that it means you can't booming blade someone from outside their reach and then just walk back and force them to take extra damage to even be able to do anything, without needing disengage actions or whatever.
But you can also then get a feat to extend it to 10ft. I'm not sure if the feat works anymore, and THAT'S when I'll call bullshit, that you can't even get a feat to extend the range.

>>
>>79736388
That's true. If it was allowing you to use something else then it wouldn't be the spell targetting anyone, it would be an indirect consequence/target.
>>
>>79735730
>>79736378
I’m gonna hope my dm has this kind of attitude and let’s me grab a few extra spells here and there. He’s into creating our own spells anyway so if anything I’ll use the dip in wizard to warrant creating some spells.

Speaking of custom spells. I know it’s not always the best place but what about a significantly weaker spirit guardians at level 2.
10ft range. Benefit of half cover and 2d4 to anyone who ends their turn in the area. Upcastable ever slot.
>>
>>79736403
spell sniper does apparently "work"
I still allow it. Most classes that would use a spear with booming blade get extra attack, and lo and behold it's not even much of a damage gain to use booming blade and walk out of 10 foot reach when compared to doing two attacks, optionally a bonus action attack if they took PAM
where booming blade really shines is if you have the war caster feat, and if you have PAM + war caster it is very fun to control the battlefield. But you're taking two feats for that, and THREE whole feats if you take spell sniper
So no. I don't think it's as unbalanced as crawford thinks
>>
>>79736403
it used to have a range of 5 feet, which you could double with spell sniper. it's now a range of self and doesn't work with spell sniper. it is intensely gay.

>>79736452
>Most classes that would use a spear with booming blade get extra attack
Assuming they don't get the proficiencies through any other means. It's very easy to get martial proficiencies as part of a package deal with other things, just a 1 level dip.
>>
>>79736452
It’s fine on paper. Just gets stupid when it’s added on a paladin who dipped warlock or sorc. Would be absolutely fine if ranger and artificer could do the same shit. This is including smites.
A paladin artificer and ranger can all make use of this combo (ranger not so much due to hunters mark like more attacks) but at the end of the day a paladin can chuck a cheeky smite on the end of each of those attacks.
>>
>>79736452
see that's even more supremely stupid
as stated before it's barely a damage gain, arguably a damage loss to use either as your action in every class that can use both a reach weapon and those cantrips
maybe if you are hexblade bladelock and don't take thirsting blade for some stupid reason
In my opinion, both should honestly be tailor made for reach weapons because they are mediocre outside of those and the occasional opportunity attack with war caster which rarely happens at standard 5 foot range
>>79736509
ok, the damage is still justified then, because all of those without extra attack of any kind not only have to either dip a martial, take a feat, etc. and most of these being spellcasters they generally do more damage raw casting a spell
>>79736521
Paladin already can achieve ridiculous damage with smites without using this combo anyway, and have much easier methods of achieving equivalent damage stacking
Keep in mind a DM can also, you know, give enemies ranged or reach attacks too. They don't have to walk into melee range to do anything
>>
>>79736470
maybe, are you the anon who posted earlier? I just now saw
Prismari sorc does look fun though, bonus action dash and only for a 1 level investment
I feel like if I take metamagic adept, I'm gonna want to 2 level dip into sorc anyway to get another 2 points
>>
>>79736483
>Swift Quiver
It would be redundant even if you could. As for if you can at all, it's hard to say since it's right on the fence -- the attacks you're making are part of Swift Quiver but the attacks themselves are not the spell and aren't magical or anything like that. A creature hit by one of the attacks is not subjected to anything from the Swift Quiver spell at all, all Swift Quiver did was allow the character to make attacks which then targetted someone.
>Flame Arrows
No. Creatures taking the extra 1d6 are taking damage from a spell.
>>
>>79736558
>enemies can range too
I agree. The combo is fine. I just think paladins. Compared to everyone else. Ruin the combo for everyone else. We won’t ever get a fun melee based sorc because a paladin dip would take it levels unknown

I don't really know, yet. One of them is for sure, but we're doing intro sessions for each of the individual characters where everyone else plays temporary side characters, so we haven't got a sense of what the party feel is just yet.

They do know a lot of the game is going to revolve around politics and mystery, though - the campaign name is "Conspiracy", if nothing else.

Old posts, but if anons are reading; I did a single level of wizard at second level. Having shield, absorb elements, and find familiar are great spells to grab and always have prepared leaving room for more artificer spells like cure wounds. In my game we are level 4 now and I plan on grabbing a second level of wizard for the abjuration ward. I like the synergy it has with the gaurdian armour mode."ahw bloo bloo bloo, muh extra attack". Bitch, I to a d8's worth of damage and I'm in a party with a paladin, rogue and fighter. I'm not gonna try to compete with that damage.
>>
>>79741519
>>79741510
The way I did it is that you can only inscribe a number of spells equal to your proficiency for each level spell slot you had

This gave the Eldritch Knight more spells, but they where limited and had to make choices. To replace spells I rulled that his "magical diary" made a fresh page an hour after he ripped it out

>>79741330
first we'd have to know what they're actually meant to accomplish.

3.5 it was just "gets fighter feats and BAB but also mostly full caster level. That's it."

in 4e, it was a magic paragon path of the Knight fighter class. Knight was all about trading marking for attacking those that attack allies, like the Sentinel feat. EK then let you teleport once an encounter, teleport for free when you action surge, and take one ally with you if you had them currently in your defended area.
you also get exactly one lvl7 wizard encounter power, using your weapon as the arcane focus.

It's basically just a fighter that teleports 2-3 times a fight.

5e it's... what?
>>
>>79741827
Fighter that can cast shield/absorb elements

Hey speaking of
I know this is a 5e general and shit
But whats Pathfinder like?

>>79741791
Using touch spells like Paladin Smites would be extremely fun.
>>
>>79741791
Do the spell attack thing. Change melee and ranged spell attacks into weapon attacks.
>>
>>79741791
>War magic
Using bonus action, you can prepare a touch/self spell. The next time you hit a creature with a weapon Attack the Attack also activates spell's effect on the target.
Preparing a spell costs its spell slot and a concentration.

sure but what is that supposed to accomplish, and then why does it still have warmagic, heighten spell on things you stabbed, and action surge teleport?

>>
>>79741853
I've preferred the spell attack route, only because it flows a bit better than trying to mash all "Range: Touch" spells to a weapon attack. There's also not a lot of those spells in the game in the first place that you'd use like this. Even the ones that do exist, might just be saving throw spells which is worse to cast on a weapon attack.

>>

>>79742004
Actually hmmm, lets really break this down. What kind of playstyle are they trying to reward.

You get cantrips. the half-casters originally don't so you're meant to use them, and unlike AT it's probably not mainly for utility.

you get spells, but very few known, and only really blasts and wards.

you have a feature rewarding you to TWF cantrips with weapons. since you're only making one attack, longbow or greatsword is decidedly the expectation, light will not help you. though there is a case to be made for Duelist +2 with a lance. Your bonded weapon is oddly not a focus, so shields are not expected unless warcaster.

you get Heightened spells if your weapon attack hit. meaning you really want those to hit, but not as much as the spell itself, since it will be outdamaging the stab. Also you want saves not spell attacks.

you can't completely neglect your stab stat though, because heavy armor needs +2 strength or you're slowed, and anything lower needs +2 dex. also you want that Heighten.

And you get a 30ft teleport on action surge. which for str means flash stepping to and OMAE WA MO SHINDERUing the enemy mage, and for dex free disengage. The other reason to want a Save cantrip is it's accuracy doesn't care if you're in melee or range.

So what is that... Acid Splash and Poison Spray in PHB?

Does Acid Splash, reliably hitting 1 and sometimes hitting a second creatures, plus a greatsword smack, out damage even just normal extra attack?

after PHB we have the SCAG cantrips, mind sliver for a very solid caster-support role, frostbite for a defender role, sword burst, toll the dead, and Create Bonfire which is fun with sentinel and or booming blade.

so okay, phb only, fighter only, pretty underwhelming, no idea the plan. Is there a multiclass that makes it busted, or makes something else busted? Something wizard most likely, since i don't think any other caster or martial cares, or if they did could stomach a split casting stat or 7 level dip?

Tard here, does the following statement mean that casting protection from evil and good on someone possessed by the intellect devourer un-body snatches them?
>If the host body dies, the intellect devourer must leave it. A protection from evil and good spell cast on the body drives the intellect devourer out.
I figured since being dead makes the i.d. leave anyway.

Being dead does drive the devourer out. As does casting PfGaE on them. The reason it's specifies "the body" is because there would be some confusion if it said "your friend" or "Aragorn, the ranger". You can't the spell on the body the intellect devourer is possessing

doesnt work, the hand is an object, it occupies the space its in. In order for it to interpose itself between you and the target there needs to be room for the hand to occupy.

but if you create room for it, then the hand simply prevents that creature from getting closer to you, it does not push it away.

Forceful Hand is the one that pushes away, or Grasping Hand to grapple it and then move the hand on another turn

Race is homebrew Yordle with +1 in WIS and +2 in CHA. With standard array my stats are 10, 14, 13, 12, 16, 10.

The rest of the party is wild magic sorcerer, samurai fighter, EK fighter, open hand monk, mastermind rogue.
I've been thinking about either taking chef for what rp there is, or just doing war caster/ASI.
