    Survivor Capstones- BARBARIAN WINS!

    [h/t Zardnaar]
    [Also, someone else suggested this, and I can't remember. But thank you!]


    This thread is inspired by the prior threads on the core classes, the core races, the core alignments, feats, and the iconic D&D monsters. Also? It seems like a really cool idea. But they all do before I start (ahem, conditions).


    IMPORTANT NOTE- DOWNVOTES ARE ONLY WORTH 2 IN THIS THREAD. BECAUSE REASONS. AND IT TOOK A LONG TIME TO GET TO 20, MAN!

    Each capstone starts with 20 points and you vote for one capstone you like which gets 1 point and a capstone you dislike which loses 2 points. It is intentional that a negative vote is worth more than a positive vote- first, we don't want to be here all year. Second, because.

    Upvotes are in green, downvotes are in in red (unless you are on your phone, and are unable to). Copy and paste the previous posters vote and change the numbers. You may vote once per day.
    This is an honor system, and we are all honorable gamers; please do not abuse it. If this means you vote once at night one day, and once the next morning - that's fine, but don't vote again until the following day. This is also purely a popularity contest and you do not have to explain an upvote or downvote, but feel free to- explanations are where the fun is! When downvotes reach 0 the capstone is eliminated (FATALITY!). Finally, if a capstone has one or two votes left, then you have to make the choice to use all of your downvotes to eliminate it; there is no vote splitting. Also, to clarify- there are no "see votes." You cannot upvote and downvote the same capstone.


    Three important points that you must read before voting-
    1. This is a pure popularity contest, and is meant to be fun. You can cast your votes for whatever reason you want. Spite, irrational love/hate, setting mechanics, strategic voting, and so on is perfectly acceptable. You can vote based on the capstone's name, or its features, or its denizens, or whatever- it's all good! This vote does not affect anything in real life, and no capstones will be removed or changes by Wizards of the Coast in the future because of this vote. You can comment for the reasons for your vote, or not- up to you! But this is for enjoyment only.

    HA! Who am I kidding?. OF COURSE THIS LIST WILL BE USED BY ME, SOMEHOW, TO JUSTIFY GETTING RID OF PALADINS. IT'S ALL PART OF MY MASTER PLAN!

    2. This is a list of approved of the level 20 capstone abilities for each of the core and approved PHB classes that we all know and kinda sorta love. If you need to brush up, or see the official list, please review your player's handbook or check out out an open source, such as-

    https://www.5thsrd.org/

    For complaints, please go to /dev/null


    That said, the list is the list- please do not alter it.

    3. Be kind to each other!

    Katana Just kidding! Katana does not need a capstone, Katana is a first level capstone!


    Barbarian (Primal Champion) GIVES OUT A BARBARIC YAWP! WINNER WINNER RAGEY DINNER!

    My upvote is based not on mechanics, which are meh at best, but on the name. C'mon. Who doesn't want to be their perfect self?

    I don't think I have to explain my downvote.

    Edited to account for post above me, and its missing upvote.

    Barbarian (Primal Champion) 23 Does what you want from a capstone; break the rules but not break the game. (Cough...druid..)

    Druid (Archdruid) 18 People talk about the moon druid twinkery with this, but outside of that? Its pretty useless overall; would gladly ignore for every other Circle. When its cheesy for one and useless for others, then you know there's something off.
