What are your favorite UA that haven't been printed officially yet? Tasha's included most of the ones I really wanted to play and now that Undead Warlock and Spirits bard are official it's just the new dragon ones that I think will be printed soon anyways.
I like the old old old Revenant UA as an option for continuing characters that die mid-campaign if it makes sense for them. It's kind of unbalanced to start at level 1 with but at higher levels the features are nothing game breaking.

Is WOTC going to move away from ASI completely and just use a bunch of unique features to differentiate races? I’m starting to get concerned about the direction it looks like they want to take things. My fear is that eventually all uniqueness will be left to personal flavouring. ie everyone gets a xdx damage spell at x level and the work is put on the dm to decide the flavor with the player rather than WOTC doing their job.

They just need to separate feats/ASI's in 6e. Then you can get rid of half-feats and instead build your feats around doing things you normally couldn't do.

Echoing what other anons said toss in a spellcaster or two with CC spells (target the barbarian) such as hypnotic pattern, charm person, etc. If you want to tie it in with Forgotten Realms lore, maybe some followers of Bhaal from Baldur's Gate have come to seek the party out and murder them before they get to the city? At this point don't be afraid to throw a good number of melee combatants at them while casters and ranged enemies attack from the back. Give the back line of enemies something they can hide behind too. I guarantee the monk will have a great time and feel rewarded maneuvering around and beating on the backline, breaking concentration on the spell that has kept the barbarian out of the fight all encounter.

how would you make roll rules to win at an eating competition? let's say participating village fat guy has +4 constitution mod. let's say everyone in the party competes together plus this fat guy
i was thinking roll 15 con, then 16 then 17 and whoever keeps up wins

>> No.78018253

>>78018194
Correct. Basically the "standard" stat for melee weapons is Strength. Since you have a -1 modifier, you "add" (really subtract in this case) that to your proficiency (since you're proficient) and that is your bonus to your roll to hit, for damage you don't add your proficiency just your modifier which is your -1 strength.

And yeah, adding dex is for ranged weapons and finesse weapons only. Honestly it sounds like you've got it pretty figured out and are just being anxious. Don't worry, if you fuck up I suspect the people playing with you will be forgiving.

>> No.78018257

Fairy sucks. The only thing it has going for it is flight, and even that doesn't work if it's in an anti-magic field. Oh, and that they're Fey. That does stop a few minor things.

Hobgoblins are pretty damn strong. Good use of the Help action, but often the bonus action is not used anyways. Also increases the max speed of the ultimate 1 turn speed character build.

>Owlfolk.
>Library.
Is that Wan Shi Tong? Also 90 FT Darkvision is interesting. Also just flight.

Rabbitfolk are boring. The +d12 movement can be either nothing, 1 square, or 2 squares. Even when not using a map, 5 foot intervals are what most use due to weapon range.

Overall. Meh. Still sucks they want to do the lineages for everything. For the last one kinda getting it now, since they were ment as templates to be obtained later, even though most are either too strong or just weird in what they have you lose. Unless that too was changed, but we'll see in the May. This though? Again, unless they're templates, just give them fixed racial stats and allow those who want it to use the lineage system.

Ok, let's make this crystal clear.
>Attacks: Proficiency + Attack Stat + Weapon Modifier
>Damage: Damage Stat (Same as Attack Stat) + Weapon Modifier.
>What's my Attack Stat?
It's STR, unless it's a finesse weapon in which case it's DEX or STR, your pick.
>What's my Damage Stat?
Always the same as your attack stat. So if you attack with a rapier (finesse) but choose to you STR, you add your STR to the damage as well. If you use DEX (which is allowed because a rapier has finesse) then you add DEX to the damage.
>Do I add my proficiency bonus?
If you have proficiency with that weapon type, and only to the attack roll, not the damage roll. See above equations.
>What's weapons modifier?
At some point you'll probably encounter a magic weapon that is +1, +2 or +3. This bonus is added to both Attack and Damage rolls.
>What dice do I roll?
For attacks, you roll the D20. For damage, you roll the weapon damage die (or dice). For example your warhammer is 1d8. A greatsword is 2d6.

I dunno, but I can see how to Eberronize these feywild hobgobs. In times most ancient, before the Daelkye War that broke the spirit and psyche of the Dhakanni empire...an expansionist force of Hobgoblins took one of the not too often appearing Eladrin Feyspires. This force occupied the feyspire, but the timing was poor as the spire vanished into Thelanis, realm of fairy stories.

Now, when the day of mourning happened, the Feyspires all became rooted back to the material plane all at once. Returned to the realm of their ancestors these Fey Touched Hobgoblins are changed by their time...but unlike the Heirs of Dhakaan and the greater goblinoid minority of Khorvaire; their people were never broken by the Daelkyr or enslaved by the humans.

And they have spent countless twisted time telling their stories and weaving their fairy tales of the Empire of old...sit by my fire if you would hear these tales and learn the Glory that will again be ours.

I wish they would release a 5.5 edition or updated player's handbook so they could bring some of the original features and subclasses in line with current design. For example, Chain Pact familiars being able to work on your own initiative and scaling with your proficiency bonus(and getting more health christ the sprite is stuck with 2 forever) the way all the newer companions like Wildfire Spirit, Steel Defender, and UA Drakewarden dragon do. They released a really awkward bandaid fix in tasha's that lets familiars attack on your turn with a bonus action and scales their DC to your spell save one but they still have separate initiatives and don't improve.

Other important shit: giving expanded spell lists to the PHB sorcerer subclasses like Clockwork and Aberrant Mind, finally codifying and clearly delineating the ridiculous fucking distinction between unarmed attacks, attacks with natural weapons that count as simple melee weapons, melee weapon attacks, and attacks with a melee weapons.

Posting one more time before disappearing into the night. I'm making a level 3 undead chainlock for an upcoming game. Cantrips are eldritch blast and mind sliver. Invocations are agonizing blast, investment of the chainmaster, and devil's sight. Spells are bane, hex, and darkness so far.

I need one more spell but am having trouble settling on it. What's a good spell to fill out this character?

Invisibility is pretty useful to have as a warlock because it lasts a long while, it's better when you're higher level for extra targets from your pact magic slots though. Suggestion is probably your safest bet at such a low level but it doesn't particularly fit with undead. Protection from good and evil is thematic on pretty much any outsider or powerful magical being. Misty step is a good escape option until you reach 4th level slots cause dimension door, and you don't get inconvenienced by the BA spell rule because of your blasts.

Honestly warlocks don't have a very fun spell list at low levels because of their anemic spell slots.

It's overall quest is to unseat and depower the gods to restore its counterpart.

I made Orviscus, some weird outer entity that didn't even know about the Warlock PC for half the campaign, until a poor roll meant he siphoned off a little too much power and caught his attention. Suddenly the party had another issue on their hands and had to scour the area the Warlock found the dusty old tome in the first place to find a way to deter Orviscus' curiosity and gradual drifting towards the plane, which was causing no shortage of issues from mutations, new creatures appearing in spatial tears, fluctuations in millennia-old rituals. Just a big mess really.
Even after they managed to shield the plane from Orviscus, the party never did let him hear the end of it.

This was 4e but it would still work: I gave my players tiger-eye gems as an invitation to a palace, where the guests are required to have these on them at all times as proof of admittance. A helpful "demon" earlier had told them of a local saying about the "eyes of charity."

During combat with her, the wizard slung a spell with a high roll, and it missed, and she gave her a smirk, and I said to the player "your character feels like that should have hit."

Two good investigation checks later revealed a trait that she could not be hit by any non-critical attacks by someone carrying a tiger-eye gem; She was a psionic that used them to read their thoughts, meaning she could never be assassinated or attacked by her guests.

The combat was all a test of resolve anyway, and there were more mechanics than just that, but it was fun to throw a "figure out why we can't seem to hit her" before the she took the fight seriously.

Weapons are the easiest example. A shortbow used by a small or medium creature does 1d6 damage. A tiny shortbow used by a tiny creature does 1 damage. A large shortbow used by a large creature does 2d6 damage. A huge shortbow used by a huge creature does 3d6 etc.
