    Level Up (A5E) A5e Worlds

    Well, yes, that's why I asked if anyone here was planning to do it, as I'm aware of the IP, but that's never stopped 3PP or fan-made supplements before.

    Level Up (A5E) A5e Worlds

    I'm likely mistaken, but the last I checked Mystara had not been converted, nor had the regions in Forgotten Realms I've mentioned. There are also some older settings that I don't think have been adapted since 2nd or maybe 3rd edition, though I could be wrong. For myself, I was thinking of...

    Level Up (A5E) A5e Worlds

    Is anyone planning on adapting any of the D&D worlds for A5e? Particularly, anything like Mystara, Eberron, or the Forgotten Realms (especially areas like Al-Qadim, Kara-Tur, and Maztica)?

    Level Up (A5E) Gnolls (and other evil things)

    Yes, the Narrator can, in fact, add that to the DC check if they want. Or literally alter any of the other stuff anyway they want. I really hope, eventually, people will understand this is not what I'm talking about. All the MM looks like is like it's doing the same old same old. The "color...

    Level Up (A5E) Gnolls (and other evil things)

    Yeah, demons in game are worshiped. The Warlock's class is based on various deals with them (and other, similar entities). But in real life men and women were killed after being accused of having made a pact with such. It might not be entirely racist, but there have been a lot of RL problems...

    Level Up (A5E) Gnolls (and other evil things)

    Yes, but, again, that's really not the point. The point is that the designers created a species that can be just as good or evil as any other, but without Narrator intervention, what PCs should know is that it's just fine to kill a Gnoll on sight since they're likely responsible for murder...

    Level Up (A5E) Gnolls (and other evil things)

    So, to try and show what I'm getting at, here's part of the entry for Gnolls as it currently exists: The area I put in bold is my emphasis. Now, the DC 10 isn't great, but it's an average roll and what most people are likely to know. I wish it were more of a neutral knowledge check. The DC...

    Level Up (A5E) Gnolls (and other evil things)

    I do too, but it's what makes the DC 10 so very sad. Consider the plight of a Good Gnoll with the entry as written. They come across a band of PCs and, if they don't have initiative, they could be dead in a round. The PCs will see a Gnoll. They will want to roll a Knowledge Check and then they...

    Level Up (A5E) Gnolls (and other evil things)

    Oh I've been at those tables and left them for others that fit better. And, yeah, there are people like that. It can become a big issue, though, if the Player is making their PC act in such a way that makes everyone else unhappy. I'm really not sure how else I can state why I consider the entry...

    Level Up (A5E) Gnolls (and other evil things)

    There's always some kind of Problem and it needs to be dealt with otherwise there's no story. However, there have been (and, sadly, still are) people who are only too eager to punish or kill those different than them or what their particular idea of a "perfect society" is. They have to be fought...

    Level Up (A5E) Gnolls (and other evil things)

    I really didn't mean to dismiss it. I like it a lot, but it doesn't solve the core problem that in the official book*, the first thing anyone will know about Gnolls (on a DC 10 or 15) is that they're demon-worshiping, people-killing creatures. That's not exactly going to allow much room for good...

    Level Up (A5E) Gnolls (and other evil things)

    D&D tends to lack playable canine races for some reason, and I do like canines (yes, I know hyenas are not canine). Also I read the comic strip Digger and got a lot of ideas for gnolls from there. It'd make sense if all the creatures in the MM were evil, but they aren't. Zeitgeist is very nice...

    Level Up (A5E) Gnolls (and other evil things)

    I know, but I find reading this stuff more and more creepy. Like, if they're really trying to get away from the racist things don't start with them being evil. It even mentions that other humanoids can participate in the rite, so maybe make it an additional cultural variation at the end of the...

    Level Up (A5E) Gnolls (and other evil things)

    I mean, different settings having different things is fine, but I really wish people were a bit more hesitant when it came to living beings effectively being "okay to kill" because of whatever reasons. And I know some people will point out they're literally possessed by a demon, but if anything...

    Level Up (A5E) Gnolls (and other evil things)

    Is there any possibility of making it where the Gnolls are not the newest Orcs/Goblins in terms of "it's okay to genocide them!"? Like, PCs may need things to fight, but I'm always bothered when an entry is basically "yes, they can be good but they'll never escape this [insert thing making...

    Level Up (A5E) New Classes, Subclasses, Cultures, etc.

    I think when I read the mixed heritages part, I mistook that for designing it, though Age, Size, Speed, Heritage Gift and Paragon Gift are mentioned and examples exist in the ones provided, so I didn't think it'd be too hard to make new ones around these. Another thought on this is that it'd be...

    Level Up (A5E) New Classes, Subclasses, Cultures, etc.

    Yeah, I just like it when the folks making a system go into how they decided what so when it comes to homebrewing there's less fuzziness. Pathfinder did some of that with their point-buy system but never actually did that for their classes, despite the book they published. Naïve as I am, I was...

    Level Up (A5E) New Classes, Subclasses, Cultures, etc.

    While Heritage, Background, and Destiny have sections for creating your own, Culture does not. Given that not ever culture will fit well on a given world, it'd be useful to have guidelines for it like the others do. As for New Classes and Subclasses, it'd be nice to know how features are...

    Level Up (A5E) Is Level Up: Advanced 5th Edition compatible with D&D 5E?

    Okay. I just wasn't sure if any tweaks might need to be made to it. Or if things like the synergy feats would apply.

    Level Up (A5E) Is Level Up: Advanced 5th Edition compatible with D&D 5E?

    A5e seems to be much better about versatility, but there doesn't seem to be a way to support subclasses. For instance, if I wanted to play an Eldritch Knight, I'd have to multiclass between Fighter and Wizard and, while there are synergy feats for this, it seems like I'd still end up with...
