Remember how I said I couldn't talk about it but I wrote it months ago?


POW. Just dropped!
 





Owlin Barbarian with Bear totem?

Yeah, I think some creatures should be redone as Beasts.

But aren’t Minotaurs monstrosities? They’re just cow + human.
I had to look that one up - minotaurs are monstrosities in 5e. That's another one I'd probably not allow via wild shape.

I wish they’d at least make the owlbear move soundlessly, see in the dark, and like jump it’s full speed or something.

But also idk what anyone says, the Druid is not that powerful, not even the Moon Druid, and letting them turn into monstrosities and Fey would pretty much fix it for me.
