    General The Eberron PC races outside of Eberron

    Nice! I think it makes sense and just kinda feels similar enough to fit fairly seemlessly.

    5E Fantasy Grounds Previews of Tasha's Cauldron

    Thanks! It's a lot of fun to explore what his magic looks like and how it works. I'm working hard right now on my own system's magic, to make it feel and work in way that is simple, but that encourages the player to think about the look and feel of their character's magic.

    5E Jeremy Crawford Discusses Details on Custom Origins

    I'm aware of those builds, sure. I don't agree at all that they are broken. Nor are they necessarily going to arise from allowing multiclassing without tightly controlled rules. I've seen a couple Sorlocks in play, and I've played an Ancients Dex-Paladin/Fey Warlock Bladepact with Warlock...

    General The Eberron PC races outside of Eberron

    Shifters I really prefer in Eberron where they are specically not descended from theriomorphs (the proper term for were-creatures in general, while lycanthrope is more specific), but are rather the natural side of the same coin, while lycanthropes are corruptions of nature. Many shifters believe...

    5E How Do You Feel About The Pact of The Talisman?

    No sign of any change from the UA, so the basic thing is a talisman that gives you +1d4 on untrained ability checks. Cool! You can Counterspell more effectively, and it's a differently themed Jack of All Trades, that you can grant to someone else if you want. ANyone have a problem with it...

    5E Fantasy Grounds Previews of Tasha's Cauldron

    Was tired when I wrote this. What he sees is like an "transmutation circle" from Fullmetal Alchemist, but constantly moving with the battlefield, and even showing him magic and such, which he uses to position himself advantageously. It also speeds up his mind and body, the mapping shows him...

    5E Jeremy Crawford Discusses Details on Custom Origins

    What cheesy combos does 5e even have? Nothing in 5e, and I mean literally nothing in any official book, breaks the game, in any officially allowed combination. Any concept can be done with Tasha's sidekick classes, too. That doesn't mean they work well for every concept. That wouldn't work...

    5E Jeremy Crawford Discusses Details on Custom Origins

    And if someone put a more complex and "nuanced" version on DMSguild that rewrote multiple races in order to address the illusion of imbalance, I'd call that over-engineered and just use the Tasha's rules instead. As for your or my ability to do this without an official rule...okay? So what...

    5E Jeremy Crawford Discusses Details on Custom Origins

    That sounds very very bad for any group other than your own. Classes would be boring in the bulk of play, under that system, for one thing. For another, it would lead to many crappy filler features from levels 1-5, and make multiclassing just a total waste of time. Just ban multiclassing, it's...

    5E Jeremy Crawford Discusses Details on Custom Origins

    The difference is impactful because it creates, no matter what nonsense anyone tries to argue, an expectation of what the average member of the race is like. Luckily, this isn't errata, so it will not impact that at all, and I don't think there is a snowball's chance in hell that any "6e" will...

    5E Jeremy Crawford Discusses Details on Custom Origins

    What disrespect has occurred, though? No, they aren't. At all. I could maybe see a conceptual argument, but not one from a rules perspective. From a rules perspective, for most subraces, the +1 to a secondary stat is absolutely the least part of the subrace. I'd have to disagree with that last...

    5E Fantasy Grounds Previews of Tasha's Cauldron

    Hell yeah, my Gnome Bladesinger projects an illusory field that only he sees (essentially an Augmented Reality Heads Up Display), mapping a ritual circle over the field of battle, with circles for each actor in the battle and vectors connecting circles. He sees a real time tactical map of his...

    General Which Edition Had the Best Ranger?

    Those things could be added to the much more versatile overall Ranger, though.

    5E Fantasy Grounds Previews of Tasha's Cauldron

    I’m happy to use Bladesinger as an ancient Gnomish tradition in a world that doesn’t even have the Seldarine. Arcane Tricksters are a derivative form. Elves of this world tend more toward Eldritch Knights.

    General Which Edition Had the Best Ranger?

    The description is there to help people see through the power card structure to what is actually happening, which isn’t magic, but can be something beyond what is possible IRL. Most martial powers aren’t beyond what is possible IRL, however.

    General Which Edition Had the Best Ranger?

    Saying that someone is being hyperbolic isn’t an attack. And it is silly to call them spells. Your original statement was that everyone had spells in 4e. An absurd statement. Even if we focus on the more amazing abilities in martial powers, instead of focusing more sensibly on the bulk of...

    General Which Edition Had the Best Ranger?

    If you can't get past the game-jargon name"power", this was never a real discussion to begin with. You were done before we began. edit: I guess every fighter who can carry more than a real human could while running at a healthy jogging speed is also casting a spell? The rogue whose tiny...

    General Pet or familiar for a hunter of the undead?

    Get weird, also. A sentient bell with wings. It's chime does a single target turn effect or a AoE debuff? A book of the dead. also sentient and flying. A clay simulacrum of a cat or other creature associated with protection from spirits and the dead.

    General Which Edition Had the Best Ranger?

    Wow. Okay, man, if you wanna insist on this complete nonsense I can't stop you. Free country and all that. "Supernatural effects". Sure. I mean, no, but sure. If I described that to you, and you said "like a spell" I'd look at you like you'd asked me if peanut butter was made of turnip leaves...

    General Which Edition Had the Best Ranger?

    These are great points. I personally think that it's reasonable to add Survival and Nature to the ranger without losing anything, and to extend most of Natural Explorer to all terrain, keeping only the "you just can't get lost here" type stuff siloed, and then give each terrain a bonus that is...
