    Level Up (A5E) Which Comabt Traditions should an A5e Hexblade have access to?

    ... Alright then! Should have looked at both rather than just rogue. Interesting.

    Level Up (A5E) Which Comabt Traditions should an A5e Hexblade have access to?

    Sounds pretty fair to me. Personally, to keep things simple, if I'm not following the Herald table then I'd follow the Rogue table… which does grant 4th degree maneuvers, but late, and no 5th degree.

    Level Up (A5E) Which Comabt Traditions should an A5e Hexblade have access to?

    A lot of this discussion has been around using archetypes to give warlocks martial maneuvers, but I think it would be just as effective to have an invocation that provides access to a combat tradition (and more flexible, since you wouldn’t be locked into one archetype if you wanted to...

    Level Up (A5E) Interest in a Heritage with Two Bodies?

    I'm not sure if this is the direction you're going with it, but swarm/hive mind heritages have always interested me.

    Level Up (A5E) About Parrying

    As a DM, I would interpret "once before your next turn" to mean once per round, period—not once per weapon per round. However, I don't think there's anything game-breaking about interpreting it the other way.

    Level Up (A5E) Mythological/Literary/Historical Subclasses

    I personally really enjoy high risk/reward options (provided the award is genuinely worth it), and I think the Berserker is a really solid base to start with when making such a character. For example, I get why Reckless Attack is gone (while there's probably other reasons, I personally think...

    Level Up (A5E) Mythological/Literary/Historical Subclasses

    Sun Wukong Druid: From the Adventurer's Guide (I don't know what page since I'm using the SRD), "You still retain the benefit of any features from your class, destiny, or culture and can use them if your wild shape is physically capable of doing so." I'm pretty confident that this line means...

    Level Up (A5E) A5e Character Builder

    If I’m not mistaken, the Level Up Kickstarter passed the stretch goals necessary to have a full character creator as part of the SRD. We were told that would take a lot of time, and I honestly don’t expect it for a while longer - however, I am curious if there is any sort of update, even just a...

    Level Up (A5E) What Interests You about "Level Up"?

    Some classes are changed more than others. Berserker is, in my opinion, significantly different from the barbarian - improved in every way, but it still feels right. Warlock (my most-played class) is more subtly different, but those subtle differences have an enormous positive impact on the...

    Level Up (A5E) Runespell Rager: A Berserker/Warlock Synergy Feat Chain

    I really appreciate this feedback! Here's a changelog: Rune-linked Mind and Body: Now only grants half your per-turn rage HP added to your spell attack/save DC. Still only costs 1 exertion. Spell-wrought Rage: Now costs 5 spell points, rather than a scaling cost. Figured a rage was roughly the...

    Level Up (A5E) Runespell Rager: A Berserker/Warlock Synergy Feat Chain

    The quickest way to find holes you overlooked is to throw something on the internet - in other words, thanks! Mystic Maneuver definitely goes overboard.

    Level Up (A5E) Runespell Rager: A Berserker/Warlock Synergy Feat Chain

    Here's a sample for a berserker/warlock synergy feat chain that I've been tinkering with: [removed] Short version: 1st Feat (Runespell Rager): Make Eldritch Blast and your pact weapon compatible with Furious Critical and Crushing Blows. (Also, you can mix and match the barbarian and warlock...

    Your link almost got me there! It brought me to the page with all the announcements, then I had to comb through specific announcements till I found one with the right link.

    Level Up (A5E) GM's Screen—Nice!

    Been several posts showcasing the main books—here's one showcasing the GM's Screen. This thing is nice! I already thought the PDF version looked good, but this looks way better. Feels excellent, too—just a little bit of weight, feels like I could throw this thing around and not be afraid of what...
