    Level Up The Avanced Fighter

    Do you think that this fighter would be stealing the spotlight and dominating the scene using their class abilities in all three pillars of a D&D game? I don't think that that issue was what the OP set out to solve. Likewise, I disagree with the first premise of the design goals, so I do not...

    5E Aberrant Mark of The Changeling

    What do you mean by "lose memories"?

    5E player knowlege vs character knowlege (spoiler)

    I think that was the point Charlaquin was making earlier: When their group plays Call of Cthulu, there is an explicit social contract to police distinction between knowledge the characters have and knowledge the players have. When they play D&D they do not have this in place, and thus use of OOC...

    Level Up Rules about technology

    I . . . don't share your opinion on guns, but that could be a cultural thing. In practical terms, I think that they should be treated like crossbows: the long reload time reduced to allow a player to actually do something every round rather than send multiple rounds reloading. However, the...

    Level Up What is the vision of the high level fighter?

    Isn't it telling then, that even with things made really difficult for wizards and the fighter's abilities barely scratched, the caster still generally comes out ahead? Like the way Fighters excel in combat, and wizards excel in exploration, and combat? Combat in 5e is dominated by attacks and...

    Level Up Changes to race (species?)

    Technically its nationalist. Not racist. Still pretty odious.

    Level Up Deadlier combat

    Maybe have healing spells require you to spend Hit dice to use. That way, you get to the point where you know if you go down, you won't be healed up immediately, no matter how much magic gets thrown at you.

    Level Up Deadlier combat

    Try having HP go into negatives, rather than just stopping at 0. That way, you need more committed healing to bring you out of dying, and it reduces the easy Healing word spam.

    5E Hexblade vs Other Warlocks

    You get a d10 damage throwing-with-immediate-returning weapon that can be used in conjunction with a shield. You have the attacks of a pure Fighter (their most iconic ability) while still having invocations and being a short rest-based full caster as well. What ability does the weapon key off...

    Level Up Class redesign

    At the point it was late and I was tired. :sleep: Edited post: As long as an encounter drains resources, it should be part of the adventuring day calculations.

    Level Up What is the vision of the high level fighter?

    OK practical suggestion time: Assumptions: 1) The fighter will have options to choose from as they level up. These will be picked from three pools: Combat, Non-combat, and Both. Each choice will be required to be from a set pool: You cannot pick a Combat option at the level where you get a...

    Level Up Class redesign

    As a very general thought: I think that you need to decide what your "Standard adventuring day" is, and establish that before any class redesign. If you're keeping that the same as the current "6-8 encounters of 3-4 rounds each, with two short rests and a long rest", that is fine. If you decide...

    5E Help with tier 1 magic items

    Are there any particular gaps that you would like to shore up? Any characters that seem like they're falling behind in any of the areas of play?

    Level Up What is the vision of the high level fighter?

    The majority of these are combat options, and thus I believe do not address the actual problem. Other than having a couple more HP per level, Fighters aren't much better at resisting effects. . . . from goblins?! This is not the narrative that people have been explaining to you. Achieving...

    Level Up Changes to race (species?)

    Personally, I'd say no. For example I can see any ability score being improved for a sailor, or a soldier, and fitting in with character concept and the background feature. More importantly though, the discussions about removing racial ASIs made it clear that there are some vocal people who...

    Level Up What is the vision of the high level fighter?

    The ranger. paladin and monk are all magical, and therefore have a much wider variety of options for high level abilities than classes that aren't.

    Level Up What is the vision of the high level fighter?

    So in combat, the worst case situation of only having 1HP and no effective attacks put the Fighter and casters on the same level. Get into cover and teleport out. At least the beholder can't attack them with its eye rays if it wants to stop them using their spells. Your average greatsword...

    Level Up Changes to race (species?)

    At which point it is probably better to simply use higher numbers for stat point buy and standard array/a more fruitful random generation.

    Level Up What is the vision of the high level fighter?

    That is kinda the point. Clerics, Warlocks etc all get useful utility spells. At high level that is a lot of solutions to problems and chances to shine. In terms of class capabilities, a wizard, cleric or warlock who is out of spells or has none applicable is down to just Ability checks with...

    Level Up Changes to race (species?)

    They might. If they're generated like a PC is and assigned maxed-out Charisma they only have to be level 4 to get Cha of 20. More to the point, you don't need a stat of 20 to be a believable character. To be a charismatic chieftain, all you need is better than average Charisma. Assign a stat...
