    D&D 5E Telepathic Feat - is target aware of who is communicating?

    D&D 5E Telepathic Feat - is target aware of who is communicating?

    I have a player with Telepathic and Actor feats and wants to impersonate people while speaking in their minds. The spell Telepathy says the target is aware of who is contacting them (and is two-way communication), but the Feat does not. Telepathy spell says that one can share words and sounds...

    D&D 5E Balancing Mummy Lord fight with CR

    Agreed. I'm learning that now, and trying to incorporate it. Dungeon Dudes have a great video on Combat (part 2 of 3) that was very helpful in thinking about combat. Waves of 'grunts' and such.

The transformation destroyed much of the Cleric's mind, and no longer remembers her life--seeing anyone...

    D&D 5E Balancing Mummy Lord fight with CR

    Thanks for confirming my suspicion that the CR rating was WAY off. lol It's no Mumm-Ra. I'd give it a spell reflection item, but I don't want it to fall into the hands of the players.

    D&D 5E Balancing Mummy Lord fight with CR
