    D&D 5E Level 10 Magical Secrets - Lore Bard in Princes of the Apocalypse

    Never used Creation. Will have to take a deeper look at that. I had considered Wall of Force along with Telekinesis. I supposed with all of the vast spells at the Wizard's and Cleric's disposal, I was trying to have unique flavor of my own. I had been considering even Conjure Woodland Beings...

    D&D 5E Level 10 Magical Secrets - Lore Bard in Princes of the Apocalypse

    I'm currently playing a level 9 Lore Bard /level 1 Divine Soul Sorcerer in a Princes of Apocalypse campaign (with homebrew that will take us to level 20). My party consists of a Vengeance Paladin, a Twilight Cleric, a Dragon Monk, an Artificer/War Mage, and a Scribes Wizard, so we are pretty...

    D&D 5E Best Subclass/Build for 1-20 Dragon Heist/Dungeon of Mad Mage Campaign

    I reached out to this community to help me narrow my choices, but still a bit stuck so coming back to finally help me get over the hump and settle. As background, starting a 1-20 DH/DoMM campaign so this build choice will be with me for quite some time. The current party, IMHO, will certainly...

    D&D 5E Will my Beast Barbarian/Soulknife Rogue be viable in a 1-20 campaign?

    I am starting a level 1-20 campaign and am very interested in this build, for its flexibility and flavor. I view it a bit like a Black Panther sort of build, combining stealth, strength, natural weapons, and reactive resistance. We are all starting with a feat. The idea is a Beast Barbarian...

    D&D 5E Vengeance Paladin with PAM, Spear & Shield, & Elven Accuracy

    I'm planning for a 1-20 campaign and wanted to try my hand at Paladin (Standard Point Buy). The party is most likely a Ranger, Wildfire Druid, Rune Knight, Rogue, and Wizard/Artificer, so a healing/tanky PC is probably a good idea. The DM is permitting a starting feat for everyone, so it got my...

    D&D 5E Undead Sorlock Advice

    I think that's the thing that excites me the most. It works quite well with my current story arc. If anything, that was the reason I decided to do it in the first place, but didn't want to make myself a weak PC just for the sake of story. But it sounds like that would not be the case.

    D&D 5E Undead Sorlock Advice

    Without asking for spoilers, I think my concerns that initial caused me to consider MCing into Warlock twofold 1) To just the "safety" of a free/low resource damage spell for when I run out of spells (or conversely, allowing me to more aggressively use my spells without fear of being rendered...

    D&D 5E Undead Sorlock Advice

    But you think a 1 level dip + eldritch adept is good enough or would I need 2 levels of warlock?

    D&D 5E Undead Sorlock Advice

    I actually think some of it was for backstory flavor. It is a pretty heavy RP group and the Undead subclass would fit PERFECTLY with the character's story arc. From a gameplay standpoint, I think the idea of a free/small resource dmg spell sounds appealing, especially since much of my spells are...

    D&D 5E Undead Sorlock Advice

    I'm in a Strahd/Homebrew campaign that goes to level 20. I am currently playing as an Aberrant Mind Sorcerer and overall having fun, however, was very tempted to MC into Warlock. Rather than take the traditional Hexblade route, I was looking at Undead as a potential subclass. I know that will...

    D&D 5E Aberrant Mind Psionic Spell Help (for CoS campaign)

    Hey everyone, I'm playing a CoS campaign for the first time and decided to roll an Aberrant Mind Sorcerer. I love the flavor of the subclass but am really struggling with what to keep on my Psionic Spell List. I am entering an existing group at level 6 as the primary arcane spellcaster...

    D&D 5E Interesting Feat Dilemma for Aberrant Mind Sorcerer

    I posted a bit ago about going Aberrant Mind or Chronurgy Wizard for a modified CoS campaign that the DM will take to level 20 with the heavy addition of Homebrew content. I opted for Aberrant Mind Sorcerer (thanks for the help deciding everyone!) As part of this change, he is allowing everyone...

    D&D 5E Aberrant Mind or Chronurgy Wiz? (CoS Campaign)

    Super helpful, jgsudgen! I think if I'm being honest with myself, the Aberrant Mind just sounds cool and is where I am leaning, but perhaps am overthinking and talking myself out of it. Assuming I go with AM Sorc., I like your spell list, although I wonder if I should keep Calm Emotions. In...

    D&D 5E Aberrant Mind or Chronurgy Wiz? (CoS Campaign)

    Great question. I believe that he will, although I admittedly should probably confirm. So for the sake of this discussion, lets say yes. Also, as a side note, he is allowing all of us to start with a feat. So that made taking Half-Elf very appealing, or perhaps still take Variant Human and start...

    D&D 5E Aberrant Mind or Chronurgy Wiz? (CoS Campaign)

    Hey everyone, I am relatively new to D&D so am hoping to get some tips and pointers that my help me make a good choice for my upcoming campaign. For background, I am starting a revised CoS/Homebrew campaign that will go through level 20 (for context, I don't even think Strahd is the only BBEG...

    D&D 5E Curse of Strahd Class Advice (No Spoilers Please)

    By "Amped Up", I mean that the usual CoS campaign goes to 10, while this one will take us to 20. The DM has added a TON of homebrew story arcs to the narrative, to the extent that I don't think that Strahd is even the only BBEG anymore. I have actually been leaning away from Paladin after...

    D&D 5E Curse of Strahd Class Advice (No Spoilers Please)

    I am joining an amped up Curse of Strahd/Homebrew campaign that will take PCs up to level 20. I have never played CoS before, and have only played a few campaigns in D&D in total, so don't have a ton of experience across classes. The current party composition is a Cleric (front line), Rogue...

    D&D 5E Devotion Paladin build advice for Descent into Avernus

    One other option could go Paladin 12/Sorcerer 1 to get Absorb elements, Shield, plus some cantrips. I would still receive all the benefits of a full paladin, except the 4th level paladin spells (Death Ward & Find Greater Steed), but would still have the same number of spell slots. Does that one...

    D&D 5E Devotion Paladin build advice for Descent into Avernus

    I'm starting a DiTA campaign at level 5 that will take us through level 13. I decided to play a Devotion Paladin but am debating three different builds and am having trouble deciding which is the best version. For context, the other party members consist of a Barbarian, Arcane Trickster Rogue...
