    Thread Game: Change/Add/Subtract a Letter, Ruin a D&D Creature

    Sorry Janz, but... Rackshasa: the female of the species with all the curves. and you forgot... Mork: Not harmless if riled, but can throw off some zinger one-liners. Acts like he comes from a different world.

    A related mechanic from 3e comes from the dragonspawn creatures. Tiamat's Blessing let the dragonspawn share its elemental resistances with any other dragonspawn within 5 feet or riding it. Thus a mixed group of dragonspawn could be immune to multiple kinds of elemental energy.

    Another way of looking at the standard Classes are that they are what allows you to wield Gold Magical effects, as they cross colors, and are a signature of a planeswalker. Restricting others to single colors, specific combos (Ravnica guilds) or bordering/allied colors (certain other...

    Three of those also map to Alignments, however. I'd go Black: Intellect and Charisma, with Intellect dominant if Evil. Pragmatic to the Core. Blue: Intellect all the way, disregarding almost everything else. White: Charisma and Wisdom. Zealots are part of Law, Good is wise. Green: Wisdom with...

    Instead of calling them Pacts and Patrons, you could just call them ties to lands :)

    There ya go. Someone already made a system for it, exactly what the OP wanted.

    Some planeswalkers can be pretty average. I'd basically just say it's a template that allows them to plane shift 1/x, and gives someone who might not have had it the potential of magic. That renders planeswalkers themselves just people who can do a certain something, and EXPERIENCED...

    Did you just chop up the lists a bit, or rework them entirely? And did you keep a universal school? Also, were there 'gold' spells of multiple colors?

    If that's directed at the Summoning school, that's pretty much why I never bothered Summoning stuff :o

    Wow, nice passive aggressive when I can look right at your first post and see you are NOT asking for opinions. Right back at you for swearing and name-calling. I suggest you restart the thread posting how you changed the game and based off that inquire if anyone else would like to share their...

    I replied the way I did BECAUSE you were NOT asking for opinions. You were asking people to do the work for you. So, that is a nice redirection of attention and trying to blame me for it, but I'm not buying it. If you want opinions, state it. If you want work done, generally the best thing to...

    It could be said that Summoning is the school that balances out all the others, because if you Summon the right thing, you can pretty much cover the jobs of all the other magical schools!

    The wizard is INTENDED to be a solution fixer, because there's only one or two Casters in the typical party. On the metascale, sure, further narrowing the spells by School (or later by Element) restricts the Casters, but it changes the intended feel of Wizards a great deal. This is further...

    That questions is just WAY TOO MUCH WORK. I agree with the thought and the concept. Having the time to actually do it and work things out, strive for balance, etc, is something completely different. It also turns Casters into a bunch of specialists instead of people who can pull out lots of...

    D&D General Seeming, Non-Detection & True Sight

    As written, Mind Blank and Non-Detection protect you against divination effects. They don't protect the spells upon you from being noted by Divination effects. Thus, you can see the invisible. Them being Mind Blanked/Non-detected does not change the fact you can see the invisible now (they...
