    The battlesmith would fit in Zakhara, Lantan, and a few other places. The Artellerist would fit into Imaskar, the Archivist in Mulhorand.

    The Alchemist yes, it's pet is not central to it's features, but the Archivists pet is important to a bunch of features. But I agree that the Humunculus fits better as an infusion, and I'd even go so far as to say so does the Iron Defender (high level infusion).

    Looking at the poll the top option is publish it with minor adjustments and that second highest is yes, with nearly 70% between them. If WotC's, Survey resembles this I think they will make a few adjustments, and then they will publish the Artificer to Wayer's Guide to Eberron. Especially since they likely don't want to keep dragging development out forever on top of that. It's popular, ...

    Booming Blade + Shadow Blade + Twin Spell (or Quicken) = Sorcerer multiattack. Greenflame Blade is a fine situational spell, but Booming Blade is better for many builds. It can be used with War Magic Feat.

    Wakonda Pantheon makes me think of that African nation in Marvel comics. There is a Thelema Pantheon based on the spiritual teaching of Alestier Crowley. A Gnostic Pantheon made up of Demiurge, Archons, Aeons. The Lovecraftian Pantheon (it counts because its a legally reconized religion in the US believe it or not).

The Celestial Buracracy is usedKara Tur's main Pantheon, but for the Chinese Pantheon I prefer The...

    That isn't that different from the Faerun Pantheon. The Telfric, Netherese, Jhamdaath, and a few other Pantheons came together, merging as Faeun became more Globalized. Some Gods died, some Gods merged, some Gods like Gargos got demoted to demigod. Then in 4e, all the Pantheons merged, the surviving racial deities joined the FR Pantheon or died and all Mulhorandi deities except Bastet...

You can absolutely see the influence of this era on D&D.

    I disagree with you on Specialist Priests. If you just look at the name, then yeah, but if you looked at what they can do and how they are designed, Cleric Domains don't fill the gap. But I don't see 5e getting Speciality Priests. The closest one gets to Speciality Priests is the Divine Soul which is like a cross between Favoured Souls, Mystics, and Speciality Priests.

  • 11:49 PM - Hussar mentioned gyor in post Critical Role's Kickstarter Breaks $1,000,000 In About An Hour!
    ...mances from Penny Arcade, and the One Shot and Campaigns podcasts on the One Shot Network. Taken in the aggregate, all of these shows have something in common: They’re all pretty white. While women are well represented in the most popular actual play experiences, people of color are not. In fact, the team behind the Critical Role Kickstarter may be the least racially diverse group of the bunch. “Nobody is ‘turning’ on critical role,” writes a TTRPG podcaster. “If you think that pointing out that things could and should have diversity especially with the ability the cast has to promote it is ‘turning’ on them then i really don’t know what to tell you. ppl have been pointing it out for years.” By and large, the tenor of the conversation is that the folks behind Critical Role are good people. They’ve done incredible work to carve out a niche for themselves, and in so doing they’ve helped legitimize the hobby of role-playing. But they could, and should, also do better. So, gyor, if your models for diversity are Japanese or Indian cinema, well, I really don't know what to say. No one is "getting out the pitchforks". It's a comment that yes, as a public entertainment, some of us at least think that diversity is important. Is CR doing well? Absolutely. Does that mean that they get an automatic free pass just because we like them? Nope.

  • 03:16 AM - Nevvur mentioned gyor in post How would you RP an evil druid?
    Bitbrain - Thanks for guiding us to that article! I'll second your recommendation. gyor - Love the hell druid concept. Awhile back I was examining unlikely class/race combos, and the tiefling druid presented immediately. This would be a plausible background for him. As for the OP... Motive and methods are both important considerations. I made a mid-level NPC druid oriented toward swarms and disease as the Big Bad for a low-level one shot. They were the most effective tools for addressing an aggressive push to colonize a land he held in stewardship. It made him an extremist in his own circle, but he escaped punishment and went about distributing plagues til the PCs caught up with him. Do you ask because you're looking to implement something in a game, or is this more just picking the forum's brain?

  • 05:02 PM - Ralif Redhammer mentioned gyor in post 4.33 Years in: What Now for 5E? (and have we reached "Peak Edition?")
    Yeah, Pathfinder 2e is a very different beast, and from what I’ve seen, already dividing the Pathfinder fanbase. Which, really, was unavoidable – their whole design was based on staying the same and just giving people more of that thing they liked. Unfortunately, that pretty much baked bloat in as unavoidable. But, back to D&D. As gyor said, social media presents an unparalleled avenue of D&D experience and advertisement. The Stream of Many Eyes was an experience never seen before, and I’m super-excited for the eventual next one. There are so many ways to experience D&D, not just as a game, but as a culture. Pathfinder 2e, unfortunately, has a major identity crisis. It’s wavering between wanting to make itself approachable to new players, and wanting to retain an existing fan base that revels in complexity, and it shows. I do think it’s going to push WotC to up their game, but I don’t think it’s going to drive anything close to an edition change.

Can you point me to a post, statement, tweet, video, etc. where one of the designers comments on the their approach to canon in 5e? I the two of you just guessing or inferring?

    Like gyor said you can find the episodes on YouTube a few days after they air but with Twitch specifically it’s a little more complicated. The show itself (live & past broadcasts) are found on the official DnD Twitch channel. The after show Talk Pact is found on the SavingThrowShow Twitch Channel-which is the one it sounds like you found. Just head over to the DnD channel and look under Past Broadcasts and you should find it. Hope that helps.

    Just a bit of context to gyor's point about the settings and the survey that WotC did. The survey in question was asking what settings would people like updated. It wasn't really asking if people played in one setting or another. The survey was, to some degree, kinda self selecting. If you didn't play in any of those settings, it's unlikely you would answer.

  • 06:18 PM - Satyrn mentioned gyor in post 5e needs a Faiths and Avatars style book
    This is where polytheism is being confused with Christianity. There is no "uniform" for a priest of Corellon, holy days depend on locality, there are no standardised rituals, and very little in the way of hierarchy. Each temple would have an autonomous high priest, and he/she would have a few acolytes. Appropriate offerings are "anything the god likes" so in the case of Corellon, singing, mostly (and all temples need cash for maintenance). Well, if your right that this is the way Correllon's priesthood works, that seems like the perfect sort content for such a book would provide: "There are no standardised rituals to celebrate Correlon, etc. . . here's a couple examples of how Correlon is worshipped in the Dales, and here's how Corellon is worshipped (and has his name spelled) . . . " So, yeah. I think you're making the case for this book. It's just a shame for gyor that we're not in the TSR era because then there would be a spot in the schedule for it. Because the only reason we won't see this book is the very simple "it doesn't fit in WotC's publishing strategy."

    Kobold Avenger - Mearls has mentioned making a Warlock with an Elder Brain patron gyor - I'm not sure I'd like to see a Paladin oath that deals with psionics. I mean the other oaths are thematic: Vengeance, Devotion, Crown, Conquest, Redemption... I suppose the Oath of the Ancients is semi-similar in concept to what a Psi-oath would be like. I'd think the oath would have to be something like "Awakening" because you're awakening your own potential. As a DM I'd force any Paladins of this to probably be part of a religious order associated with Psionic deities.

    ...tion of the game. Killing is a default assumption of D&D. We can have conversations about whether that is a good thing, that is a bad thing, what that says about society, and so on, but it is a default assumption. You don't need have a giant conversation during Session 0 where you explain to the players that they might, in fact, end up killing dragons, orcs, and other things during the course of the game. It is assumed. Sexual assault? Rape? No. That is never part of my assumed "D&D," and, to be totally honest, I am aware of more than enough bad DM stories that feature this (not to mention the aforementioned F.A.T.A.L., among other low makrs in T.T.R.P.G. history) that this should rightfully set off alarm bells. Is it possible to do well? Probably not. I have my doubts, since I wouldn't play that game, but maybe for others. Is it something that most certainly needs to be fully vetted with the table (not assumed) and completely cleared? Oh, yeah, definitely. Anyway, getting back to @gyor I think that what sometimes happens is sometimes, people have an idea. And it could be a cool, awesome idea! And then they share it, and other people shoot it down, not seeing the cool idea for what it is. And there can be a natural defensiveness about it. To give you an example which is somewhat close to this- I absolutely love the whole Covenant "The Land" series (even the most recent ones), and I have shamelessly borrowed portions of the books, here and there, for my D&D campaigns. Thing is, there is this part, in the very beginning of the very first book, that isn't great. I mean- the 70s were a heckuva time, and all that, but the particular use in that book to illustrate certain points just doesn't age well. IOW, it sucks knowing that an entire series starts with the main character raping another character. Makes it a difficult recommendation. So, moving back to your original character concept- what I would say is that if the immediate feedback you're getting is that it seems...

    So they are like the Mulhorandi Gods and Gilgeam then. Thanks for the link and info, I will watch later after work. Perkins went out of his way to talk about how they are secretly active in the Baldur's Gate area with their cultists, one of the big tells for the big adventure being Baldur's Gate based.
  • 12:02 AM - Demetrios1453 quoted gyor in post Bet on Sunday’s ‘surprise’ D&D announcement
    Bane is a Greater God, perhaps an Avatar? According to a recent Lore You Should Know, since the Second Sundering, Bane, Bhaal, and Myrkul aren't currently "full" deities at the moment; unlike most of the others they elected to be able to continue to affect mortal affairs directly, living as actual entities upon Toril itself instead of the Outer Planes, and are thus somewhere between avatar and deity status. The LYSK episode in question specifically mentions they are active in Baldur's Gate, and that we would likely see them actually be statted up in a future product, which currently looks likely to be in either BG : DtA, or its possible sequel. The LYSK can be watched at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NAveVhvydhM

    So we are at least in agreement that Planescape is likely next. We will likely get Aasimar and Genasi again, Dabus as monsters, Bariurs as both Monsters and PCs, same with Bladelings. Maybe even a more general Planetouched Race that has been hinted at in the past. Maybe Gith. Any other playable races heavily linked to Planescape? Maybe Celestial Eladarin, Guardianals, Archons, and some find and elemental monsters. Maybe a Petitioner Template/s. Faction backgrounds like Sensates. Well, one out of left field possibility relates to the Sidekick rules that are being included in the Essential Set: when discussing them on the Dragon+ show Crawford noted that what he discovered whiel designign the rules is that they provided a good basis for turning anything in D&D into a playable character. So, they could recycle the sidekick rules, and use them as a basis to help a player create a PC out of any creature from Aardvarks to Unicorns. Which would befit the anything goes nature of Planescape...

    I'll give you the Abyss, the other main side of the Blood War, but no other outer planes really get explored, almost nothing for the Upper Planes beyond some details on some demihuman Gods and a few on Evermeet which sort of counts at best, nothing for Mechanus, nothing for Sigil or the Outlands, nothing for Archeron, one monster I think for Pandonium, some Yugoloths for Grey Wastes and Caceri but no real details on the planes themselves. Most of the focus is on demihuman races and their gods and the blood war, with some stuff on the Shadowfell, Astral, Limbo (really only Githzerai), Feywild, Material Plane, Hellsand the Abyss. There is stuff for Mechanus and Sigil, actually, in the monster lore: more on the level of the Monster Manual, but there. Also, the use of Shemeshka as part of the framing device. The book focuses on folks in the outer planes the PCs are likely to fight, sure, namely Fiends. But there is more there to tie into Sigil than Xanathar's or Volo's had for Wate...

    Will involve the Blood War and Outer Planes, starting in Hell. "You can only go up from there, right?" - Chris Perkins. I think this is another hint that Planescape is coming, because this adventure only deals with Avernus, not other outer planes. Plus the Painscape, plus this adventure would fit as much with Planescape as it does FR. It would also fit the material in MToF that isn't Hell related. I can see a Planescape book, with new Race and Subclass options, with some Background stuff, a Gazeeter for Sigil similar to Ravnica and monsters. So, many, monsters.

  • 03:20 AM - Parmandur quoted gyor in post The New Dungeons & Dragons Storyline for 2019 Leaked Ahead of Live Stream
    On youtube D&D beyond has all kinds of videos on Baldar's Gate: Avernus. Soul coins are cool, except they are horrifically to fuel the Infernal War Machines, which slowly and painfully destroys the the soul in the coin. Which means for good characters the Infernal War Machines are useless. Using one that way should instantly damn the soul killer, and immediate change the alignment to Chaotic evil. Well, Evil, not necessarily Chaotic. Perkins also suggested that the "fuel" lasts a long time, so a at least Neutral party might be able to use one that is already fueled to finish the storyline.

    Who says the Essentials Box Set is a beginner box? It could be anything. Starter Sets are labeled as such. What does WotC concider Essential? The PHB at least? The title is just too vague. As for Baldur's Gate: Avernus I think it's going to be a hard pass on that one too. I have an excellent Swordcoast Adventure already, the two part Waterdeep, a more interesting city then Baldur's Gate, which is one of the least interesting cities on the Swordcoast, which is one of the least interesting regions in FR, a great, but wasted setting. I have no idea why I would want this adventure. I pledged for the Arcana of the Ancients, Odyssey of the Dragonlords, and a Korea inspired D&D 5e Setting all of which appear to being showing more vision and imagination then WotC,while using the 5e system. Oh and I bought the 5e Scarred Lands and next month will likely buy Midguard 5e. So until WotC starts showing some vision and starts making better products and meaningfully moves AWAY ...

    It could be a Setting Box Set, say for Eberron, instead of just a Starter Set. Theoretically yes. I'd still put my money on it being a new starter set, but specifically for whatever setting they announce. All signs point to Eberron.

    Except villians in FR often win. Tymanther lost most of it's territory to Gilgeam, Szazz Tam rules one of the most powerful nations in the world, and he wins most of his battles, only really losing the world ending ones. Set and Sebek are back ruling Mulhorand with their family. Cyric was successful in killing Mysteria and blowing up the realms. Dark Elf cities thrive in their Chaos and dominate much of the underdark. The Zhentarium is rebuilding and becoming a major power again. FR has more powerful evil Gods then most settings have Gods period. Thieves Guild thrive in many cities. Asmodeus managed to stay a God in the face of horrifying adversity. In the FR the good guys always win in the end. If a bad guy seems to be ahead, it just means it's not the end. See: Infinity War.

They have been actively playtesting the crunch from that book, and talking about the possibility of a full book along the liens of Guildmaster's Guide to Ravnica. The unique monsters of Eberron (and there are quite a few) haven't been covered yet, among many other things.

But Mearls said in an interview with Comicbook.com that the PDF did not mean a Hardcover wouldn't also be coming. And since they are testing Artificer heavily in UA right now, seems obvious to me that Eberron is getting a full hardcover now.
