Only your mom, OP.

That depends on whether "extraterrestrials" includes creatures from other planes. I have a few PC races that originated on the elemental planes and ended up migrating to escape the genies.

>>44702520
Current BBEG is an extra-dimensional sun eating creature that splintered when landing on the planet.

It gathers energy by making suns go Supernova, to get the most energy put of them. Debating how to make it appear properly in full.

Wouldn't suns give greater energy if you just ate them whole?

There's the sword swingy wizard class. Sounds pretty jedi to me. Wield a longsword. Fluff extra stuff as punching and kicking etc.

You can already use most melee weapons as monk weapons. Having a great AC while unarmoured, parrying and even stopping ranged attacks, running kenyan speed over water, expending energy points to do superhuman stuff?
>>
>>44703036

>Wait, what isn't jedi about monks already?

No.

1) No increased speed

2) No immunity to disease

3) Monks don't have the force

4) Monks cannot do telekinesis (ie force push)

5) Monks do not have anything like Jedi Mind tricks

I understand the thematic similarity but to make that comparison is, no offense, rather badly thought out to put it mildly.

2) Monks do

Jedis are just a special kind of monk with psychic powers.

I can twin Haste and have myself as a target right? I'm assuming it's only if the target specifically has a range of self that I can't?
>>
>>44703636
Sounds correct. Any spell that targets one person and isn't just self can be twinned.
>>
>>44703636
Correct. Haste targets only one creature and does not have a range of self so it's twinnable. Polymorph is another great twinnable spell.
>>
Mystic update fucking when?
>>
>>44702832

I made one up to level 11 if you want it. YMMV, but I essentially gave monk the 1/2 caster abilities of the Arcane Trickster and Eldritch Knight.

Want to Jedi Mind Trick someone? Choose charm spells.

Want to shoot lightning? Pick fucking lightning bolt.

Fluff as needed.

Wah.
>>
>>44703920
I just want a proper artificer..I like that it's a wizard tradition now, but it's honestly really disappointing that your features extend to:

> I can make a very limited range of potions
> I can eat up my arcane recovery allotment and turn it into a few scrolls..instead of just recovering my spell slots
> I can temporarily give a piece of armor or a weapon +1 or eventually +2

It's like it has the trappings of being a magical inventor without actually doing anything inventive with it.
>>
>>44704014
You could be a Bard and use Magical Secrets to get the summoning spells from the other classes. You can then buff them up a bit with Bardic Inspiration too. Then beg your DM to swap out a Bard feature with Durable Summons or something.
>>
>>44704014
Yeah. Between what summoners could do in 3.5 and PF, they decided to make summoning very weak in this edition. Similar to what they did with Necromancy in this edition but summoners got it worse.
>>
I'm DM'ing Mines of Phandelver, and I'm having some issues keeping track of all the NPCs and the vital information that they all need to give the PCs. How can I better keep track the NPCs' mannerisms, quest info, AND accurately role-play each of their characters? This question may seem a little all over the place, but it's just the most difficult part of DM'ing for me and I have yet to best it. I've DM'ed this part of the module before, and it is really hard not to consume 75% of the session just talking with NPCs.

>>44704097
Have your characters write some of the info down. Also index cards for each important or group of NPCs helps me. Nothing complicated, just their name, appearance, importance, and like 4 character traits to help me remember their personality.
>>
>>44704097
Just make an index card for each NPC, with the front divided down the middle. One half has basic info (name, race, affiliations, etc.), the other is split into two parts. Top has basic description, bottom has mannerisms. Story notes on the back.

Or if you do prep digitally, make a similarly-divided table.
>>
>>44704097
Make a note card of each NPC. Put important notes, conversation pieces, quests and mannerisms on the card.

PCs meet the NPC, pull out the card.

Eventually you won't need the cards at all, but they should help get you used to changing character all the time and remembering who does what.
>>
>>44704097
Keep notes somewhere for each character. Write down key pieces of information, a little detail on their character, and enough about them to be able to ad-lib effectively.

For significant characters in my campaigns, I write up something similar to a character sheet. For Phandelver, you can probably get away with just a cheatsheet or flashcards of each significant NPC

Actually not a bad idea.

I feel like Durable Summons should have been stronger though, for anything you'll summon at level 14 it's basically at most a 20% HP bonus and it's so low in utility compared to the other wizard level 14 features.
Like, make it give an AC bonus too or something. Focused Conjuration is almost infinitely better than Durable Summons.
Not to mention that Summoning will have mostly stopped being relevant at 14 anyway.

Thanks mates, I'll give this a try. This seems like the only downside to the module so far for me. They seemed to pack all the NPC quest givers in this one area, and my players just LOVE to talk to every last soul in town and get all their quest objectives before moving on.

Any tips for tMoP in general? my party is really enjoying it and I feel we'll actually finish it this time now that we have a regular date and players fully dedicated to playing frequently.
>>
>>44704185
I do think it's better in some ways than say PF's crafting rules, but it really bugs me that there's no way for you to craft faster without DM say so. You make 5gp progress per day of work per person working on the item. All workers have to be proficient with the appropriate tools. At least in PF you could invest in a crafting skill to speed things up.

Magic items are the same way, since this edition is intended to be low magic compared to older editions.

I've ran it once already. I altered it somewhat fluff wise to fit a campaign idea I had, but I otherwise ran it as is.

Don't be afraid to challenge your players. The death save mechanic of 5e is very forgiving.

Remember, larger numbers of enemies is generally harder than just one big and strong enemy.

Cover!!! Remind your players that it is a thing; ideally by using it yourself!

When you run the Green Dragon , run him like this https://www.reddit.com/r/dndnext/comments/2e682e/what_makes_the_green_dragon_work_in_lost_mines_of/

forgive my link for leading to reddit. the content is worth a read
>>
>>44704281
Huh.

Whereas I actually like that 5E makes magic items rare so that you don't have to weigh martials down with enough artifacts and relics to give an anthropologist a three-foot boner.
>>
>>44704337

Holy shit thanks for this link. The last time my previous group got to Thundertree, they fucking rekt the dragon turn 2. They raped it so hard I had to give it hitpoints to at least try to get off a breath weapon. I'll definitely try this next time they get to Thundertree.
>>
>>44704281
Just... hand them out? Giving players a ton of magic items in 5e just makes them more versatile, and Eberron's magic item shit is mostly focused on technology and daily life shit anyway. Following the attunement rules and rarity guidelines keeps their power in check just fine, just don't give a level 4 fighter a +3 greatsword and don't give a level 5 wizard a staff of power. Maybe make uncommon magic items readily available through House Cannith craftsmen if they have the coin.
>>
>>44704358

My favorite settings are Planescape and Eberron.

This whole low magic vibe really doesn't fit them at all.
>>
>>44704358
Different anon;

I like that you don't -have- to weigh down the martials with magic items. The issue comes when I want to give out magic items and I have to worry about whether or not they'll be too overpowered because a +3 is considered legendary status.

>>44704465
Play up on making a deal with the party. My group was cautious and suspicious, but in the end the dragon pressured them into a parlay by speaking reasonably.

The whole "I only take to a fight I can win overwhelmingly" really can boost the player's confidence too. Because the dragon "seemed" to be just as afraid of the group as they were of him, they wrongly let their guard down.

Forgot to mention to really play up the dialog the most with your more receptive players.

The Ranger with favored enemy dragon might not be all that willing, but the rogue who has eyes for treasure and fame might be able to quell the party's aggression long enough for Venomfang to get into position.
>>
>>44704571
Depends on how they metagame, since there are several ways with different levels of annoyance. Gotta be more specific.
>>
>>44704571
If I know one of my players is using out of character knowledge, I try to change that knowledge.
He's read the module? Time to change some things around so he'll be wrong. If he keeps doing it though I'd probably tell him he isn't welcome though. Fortunately it's only happened once, and the other players asked him to stop pretty much immediately.
>>
>>44704592
Currently I have players in my party who saw that I had to role a deception check for saying I was saying I'm not, the person I deceived failed the check and believed me. They never did the check but know that I'm lying. So they continue to say so.
>>
>>44704652
Next time someone tells them the truth about something, like a fork in a road, one ends in ambush, one is safe, roll a d20. If they believe he is lying despite Insight pinging truth, then they run into the ambush.

This is how you teach them.
>>
>>44704652
I avoid that by never having NPCs make Charisma checks, for starters. Players have to take NPCs and how I play them at face value. If they say they want to get a read on someone, I have them make an Insight check, usually against the NPC's passive Deception if they're actually lying. Through this I've avoided metagaming of that type altogether.

Although I'm not sure if you by "your party" you mean you're the DM or a fellow player. If you're a player, you shouldn't be rolling Charisma checks against your companions anyway.

>>44704451
When I think Jeremy Irons and D&D, I don't think subtlety.

So this is the anon that's been posting about running the aquatic campaign a few threads ago. I need some input on something. Should I keep humans as they are, and have magically maintained bubble cities, or should I just give them amphibiousness and swim speed? They would be the only playable race that couldn't breathe underwater by default if that were the case.

Would you allow players to use shape/control water on other liquids?

Sure, they can control blood that's spilled with it. But if it's inside someone's body there's no line of effect, so no bloodbending allowed.

It's fantasy, no scuba gear exists.

I mean i'm adding amphibousness and some kind of swim speed to most of the other races, without really taking anything away. Isn't that a problem for balance? I mean nobody will want to play a human if the majority of the world is in water.

>>44705022
You can ok magically maintained bubble cities but not some kind of magitech scuba bullshit?

>>44704963
Give them a 30 foot swim speed and let them hold their breath for 15 minutes at a time like lizardfolk. Leave everything else the same.

>>44705022
Just make a cantrip called Bubble Breath or something. If someone wants to play a human that isn't a spellcaster well, fuck 'em.
>>
>>44705022
It's a massive problem, yeah. Just give humans amulets that give them waterbreathing and a swim speed or something.
Why are the humans even there? Humans are shit under water, they'd live on islands.
>>
>>44705022

>It's fantasy

Yes. Exactly.

Just invent a relatively common plant that can be brewed into some kind of potion or ointment which provides underwater breathing.
Have a Wizard guild that provides affordable magic scuba shit.

Jesus Christ, use your imagination.
>>
>>44705046
Its not magictech that's maintaining the bubble cities, bu the burgeoning power of corrupt sorcer-monarchs who demand fealty or banish you from the city. Air is precious, and you have no right to it.

>>44705059
There are no more islands. 99% of the world is now underwater after the world drowned. There is no more surface civilization.
>>
>>44705070
>plants that produce Sonic the Hedgehog-style bubbles that let humans travel great distances across the ocean floor
>>
>>44705022
Human can magic right? Have the market of the bubble cities flooded with potions of waterbreathing for the plebs, and pendants or chargable wands for the rich.

This lets the rich travel from bubble city to bubble city, and keeps the poor stuck in one area (likely never able to leave the city).
>>
>>44705098
In which case humans would prefer living on Waterworld-style rafts.
>>
>>44705077
Then you've answered your own question. Humans cannot survive under water. Humans have no way of getting out of their bubble cities. Humans cannot participate in adventures outside of their city. Problem solved.

If you make the humans amphibious, then there's no point in some corrupt government entity controlling access to their bubble cities..they can just as easily live elsewhere.

Isn't that how Harry Potter did it as well? Harry chewed some weed or whatever?

No, wait, that turned him into a merfolk. Well, why not just have some weird plant that, when you chew it, it releases lots of oxygen somehow? You wouldn't be able to talk underwater but it would work well enough.

Y'all are underestimating just how damn big the world is. As it is, I believe oceans cover about 71%. A 99% ocean-covered Earth still leaves plenty of room, maybe even for entire continents. Unless you want to add another couple decimal points to that or make your world smaller than Earth, you'll still have sizable islands in your world.
>>
>>44705137
Magic?
>>
>>44705137
Wood isn't the only thing that floats.
Magically augmented pumice or some shit.
>>
>>44705133
That doesn't solve my problem at all. If humans are amphibious, the bubble cities wouldn't exist. They'd have no place.
>>
>>44705137
How many modern ships are made from wood? I presume there is metalworking in this world? Low-grade steel could build pontoons, platforms and so. You could fire bricks or concrete and it would still float. Where did all the pre-drowning ships go? They clearly have a way of turning salt water to fresh water or they wouldn't be able to live for long, why can't they remove the salt from some underwater soil and plant conifers in the bubble cities and later in the floating towns? Why don't they just dry and weave seaweed into fibers for cloth ships, like Indonesians occasionally did?
>>
>>44705207
That's what he said in his post, ya dingus.
>>
>>44705161
It's an abstraction. The point is adventure is underwater, the campaign setting takes place underwater. The surface is enigmatic, mysterious, and yet quite empty of nearly everything but water and sky.

Think Dark Sun, but underwater.
>>
>>44705213
None, there was metalworking in this fantasy world at one point, much has been lost including Fire itself.
>>
>>44705220
What we're trying to tell you is that humans can't participate in the campaign if they can't breathe underwater. Let them breathe underwater for a limited time and the bubble cities will still exist, but if you want them to participate on equal footing the bubble cities won't make sense.
>>
>>44705106

>keeps the poor stuck in one area (likely never able to leave the city).

Damn anon... you been playing Dark Heresy lately? Sure is Grim and Dark.
>>
>>44705242
So why can't they build leather or fabric canoes? The technology could be extended to decently sized rafts with fish bone framing or whatever, tied together with ropes of seaweed into entire raft-towns. They could make nets and basically fish, or suspend nets and make fish farms. But underwater bubble cities aren't the natural conclusion to humans on a water world.
Your worldbuilding is already nonsense, just let humans breathe water like everyone else.
>>
>>44705255
Poor people not traveling isn't particularly grim, nor is it all that rare in fantasy stories.

Waterworld guy has already made up his mind. We all have told him how to make the bubble cities work, how to explain it; shot down every time.

Jesus fuck, leave humans out or make them Kevin Costner. Shit. It's what you've always wanted Waterworld Anon.
>>
>>44705243
Right then. So if every race has that mechanical advatnage over humans. What advatnage could humans have to even it out. Not so they can breathe underwater, but something humans have access to others don't?

Humans get a feat. They'll be fine.

No they can't. I mean it when Fire has died. The drowning of the world broke it metaphysically as well. There are now only three elements, Air, Earth, and Water. All other planes are defined by the sea. The Astral Sea, the Elemental Chaos/Primordial Sea/the Abyss.

Wait, so there's no sun? The element associated with life, birth, creation, and the noble aspect of the soul is just completely gone?

I was thinking bubble cities will likely have been hastily constructed things maintained by powerful mages or other magical means. The city is more like a section that was preserved, surrounded by ruins.

No there is light, it comes from above. In this world those qualities are attributed to air and breath.

>so there's no sun
That's...actually a really good point.

Without fire, there's no sun. Without the sun, there's no photic region. Without the photic region, there's no marine snow. Without marine snow, there's no reliable source of nutrients for the aphotic region.

Going from the other direction: Without fire, there are no hydrothermal vents. Without hydrothermal vents, there are no black smokers. Without black smokers, there are no chemosynthetics to serve as the base of the food chain.

How in the hell does this system work? There's no source of energy to sustain the biosphere.
>>
>>44705438

Also, for what possible fucking reason is life associated with air when almost everyone can breathe water just fine? Seems like air would be associated with death, given how much beaching can fuck over whales and how immediately fish die when their gills dry out.

The sun isn't fire, it's a superheated plasma caused by nuclear fusion (hydrogen and helium). Combustion (fire) is never involved.

But this is specifically talking about cultural associations.
If someone's alive when they're in water, and everyone who goes out of the water eats shit and dies, which one's gonna be associated with death?
>>
>>44705525
The sun is associated with light and heat, fire is also associated with light and heat. It's a natural conclusion to make that the two must be related, but they aren't.
>>
>>44705560
Yeah, the sun it seems in D&D terms is associated with Positive Energy? Radiant damage harms the undead quite potently.

>now, aquatic necromancers wield terrifying might in the form of vast armies of drowned, unbreathing zombies that shamble endlessly on the darkened seafloor, destroying all in their path and capturing territory for their lich-lords!
In this case, the association with fire and radiant/holy damage still exists, and therefore the consequence of not having that holy damage still around in any form means that things have tipped heavily in favor of dead things. I don't know, does that make sense?
I think people are getting hung up on how fucked up everything is instead of just trying to run with it and work things out.
>>
>>44705581
I run some as occultists in my game. They are okay flavorwise. Mechanically, their abilities only lend themselves to melee combat or duplicating necro spells on close targets.

I would say good nova potential, but they only get one attack without multiclassing.
>>
>>44705598
Dark Sun actually bothers to make the losses have real impacts on the world. The fact that the sorcerer-kings are in power is the direct result of the fuckery that occurred, and the loss of divine magic is strongly felt.

In this case, fire is gone and...that means absolutely fuck-all. Everything that fire did is still done, every possible meaningful consequence has been nullified, and it's entirely possible for that fact to never come up. The world's flooded, but that could easily occur without the loss of an entire element.
>>
>fire doesn't exist
I guess that puts a stop to all non-bacterial metabolism too, then. Enjoy your dead and unrusting world.
>>
>>44705560
We're talking about a setting where the metaphysical representation of fire went 'boink' and fucking disappeared.
When that's something that can actually happen, you have to consider that maybe physical laws as we know them might not be strictly in play.
>>
>>44705645
>Everything that fire did is still done, every possible meaningful consequence has been nullified, and it's entirely possible for that fact to never come up.
But that's just you saying that. All OP's actually said is that fire's gone and that the world is flooded. Hell, he's explicitly mentioned that metalworking is impossible now, which completely contradicts what you're getting worked up so much about.

Fucking Christ, I'm only half-paying attention to this thread but it seems like you're not reading it at all!
>>
>>44705629

That's interesting. I was defintiely going to have a strong undead presence in the campaign too. The ruins littered with the ghosts of the confused and angry dead, and skeletons with bones picked clean and covered in barnacles/coral.
>>
>>44705682
You can metalwork without fire though. If you use magic to become immune to heat you could build a forge out of a deep sea heat vent, and with some magitech you could have electrical/magical heat smelters and forges.
>>
>>44705629
>I think people are getting hung up on how fucked up everything is instead of just trying to run with it and work things out.
No, the problem is that things aren't actually fucked up at all. Every time someone tries to work out a consequence of how things would be, he rushes in to say that the consequence isn't a problem because X.

Shit, a slowly dying world is totally my jam, but you have to actually commit to what an apocalypse means.

>With the death of fire, the sun was extinguished. Without the plant life to support a photic zone, life retreated downwards, clustering around the black smokers. However, as the core of the world has cooled, the smokers have grown less and less productive, and mages studying them have begun to fear that there may not be much time left.

That'd be fun as hell, and could lead into blood magic as a source of "new" life--without fire to start the process, we start cannibalizing the life energy of the poor and disenfranchised, desperately staving off the end. Meanwhile, strange life forms begin to emerge out in the dark depths of the freezing waters--strange creatures of ice and death, with no need for fire to sustain them.
>>
>>44705645
The real impact are that sorcerer-monarchs rule the bubble cities, and nearly everyone else is primitive as fuck. All knowledge of previous ages have been mostly lost, with only sculptures and carvings remaining. No books, scrolls, maps, survive unless in the bubble cities, but the ever present dampness will get to it in time. Most cloth has rotted or been eaten. Metal has rusted to brittle and poisonous relics. There are only echoes left.

That's the one thing that he mentioned, which makes no real sense in a world where spells can easily shape metal. Not to mention the fact that he explicitly said that heat is still a thing, with underwater volcanos called out. And gods of the forge are usually volcanic, so it's not that much of a leap to say that you could set up a forge next to a hydrothermal vent.
>>
>>44705733
What does that have to do with the loss of fire? That's just everything being flooded, which could easily happen without fire going poof.
>>
>>44705684
Yeah, thanks!
I was thinking it would be really cool. You'd have the classic necromancer enemy archetype leading his army of the damned and an in-world-explanation for why they might be srs bsns.

I was thinking it might also be cool to make them spooky looking merfolk. The necromancers themselves, I mean. They could swim over and around their troops.
>The shambling shapes of centuries-dead humans come into view from the murk
>Swimming over them is the dark, gaunt form of their merfolk master, his robes billowing behind him in the current
I feel like the three-dimensional opportunities combat will allow for in this setting might be a bit much to handle, but I imagine you've already given thought to that.

>>44705468
So, the only situations where there are no consequences are situations where you've explicitly imagined that there are workarounds like "magitech" and deep sea heat vents that you have no way of knowing exist in this setting? Is it just me, or does that make about as much sense as accusing Tolkien of being a hack for not having the hobbits fly in a fucking plane?

>>44705717
The loss of metalworking is something WaterworldAnon has explicitly stated as an effect of the loss of the sea.I agree that having the slowly dying world would be cool shit, which is probably why I'm getting in on this "undead armies of the ocean" gimmick so hard, but it doesn't sound like that's what he's going for tonally speaking.
>>
>>44705745
I admit it's awesome, the setting clearly needs work which it why I come here.

The main reason why I like that fire is gone, is that society will need to work around that loss. Phosphorus or bioillumination or light, harnessing steam for heat. Metal becomes incredibly rare and precious.

How in the world do you get steam without fire though? And if you're heating water with something else to get steam (magma, etc), why not just use that for heat in the first place?

I'm that guy, and not Waterworld anon. I was just trying to say that losing fire doesn't mean losing metalworking. After living on the ocean floor a few decades, explorers would probably have found these hydrothermal vents and shit.
>>
>>44705756
Then commit to the loss of fire. Axe the sun, have the vents slowly cooling off. No new influx of life means that everyone's clustered around the remaining embers, fighting each other for a spot to keep themselves warm...

...but life is a funny thing, and will find a way to adapt. From the perspective of nature and history, this is just the end of one age and the start of a new one. New creatures emerge, as they always have, and the world keeps on spinning.

But, from the perspective of the races currently struggling to remain alive, that shift means their extinction. Why should they be pleased that there are necro-cryo-sharks swimming happily through the water? Even if those should one day develop into necro-cryo-shark-people, that race would represent their replacement--not their salvation.

Hmm. If we're saying that phosphorous, magma, steam, etc., all still exist, I can't say that it makes hella sense to have Fire, elementally speaking, completely gone/caput/vamoose, you know? So maybe tone down the complete absence of elemental fire to a severe weakening. Maybe the PC's destiny is to attempt to restore the balance somehow by strengthening elemental Fire. Not sure how they'd do that, but it's a possible hook.

I'm not going to do this, because I also love the ecosystems surrounding coral reefs and black smokers. Light is a big deal, there are places where it doesn't reach.

What I will do, is have natural sources of heat difficult to use, and alternatives like bloodheat coming to the front. Metal suddenly becomes very symbolic.

That's exactly what you were arguing against in >>44705778, though.

Man, I'm just confused now.
>>
>>44704496
Personally I like playing a world with a lot of history and I don't really have the time or creativity to fully flesh out a setting that is as storied as many of the pre-written settings. Some people see that as a bad thing, but eh. It's not like I chain myself to the lore of the setting, I feel as though I can alter it to fit what I want to say as I see fit, but having a world with a long history of shit that I don't always have to make up on the fly (which may end up contradicting something I said earlier) can be useful.
>>
>>44705880
The problem, as >>44705860 finally agreed, is that that just doesn't make any sense. Those are all basically small fires from a metaphysical perspective--with the exception of the black smokers, which are all fueled by the same BIG fire.
>>
>>44705901
I can foresee that restoring the full power of fire in that way might carry some moral weight, if a good swath of merfolk would die because of it. That could be something to explore, too, by having extremist NPCs on different sides, maybe.
>A lone, crazed, rebellious human mage who calls himself The Pyromancer extolls the PCs to help him restore Fire

They're already living under the water. What does the loss of fire actually do to them, given that fire doesn't actually burn in water?

Just have the world be flooded if all you want is to kill off the literal use of open flames.

No, that post was about using blood magic to make up for the fact that, without fire, there's no source of life via sunlight or hydrothermal vents. Basically using the poor as batteries to fuel farming to make up for the loss of photo- or chemosynthesis as the base of the food chain.

Yes. And do throw in the "We're all dying aspect", maybe with an option where the players can restore fire and the surface, at the cost of the millions of merfolk lives that now live on what used to be the surface.
A good and evil end, because the apocalypse is a shitty thing and you either die or kill someone else.

>fire isn't dead, but is very weak in this world, instead
>Waterworld anon didn't... want them to light fires from dried kelp or whale oil or whatever.
I feel like it bears mentioning that we can have it both ways on this.

Ancient myths frequently make a big deal out of fire being, at some point, a gift from the gods. In the case of Greek myth, for example, the secret of fire is stolen from the gods by Prometheus and given to humanity. Before then, humans are said to have lived in darkness and eaten only raw meat. Perhaps it could be that, during the immense elemental apocalypse that so weakened the element of Fire in the world and drowned it in water, that the secret of Fire itself was lost to humanity?

This would a) make a plausible excuse for why bubble-city people don't strictly speaking have their own ways of making fire, b) add another level of mythological weirdness, and even c) provide ambitious fire-friendly adventurers a way of restoring balance: they have to journey to wherever the secret of Fire could be found and return it.

That could be neat.

I feel like, while the SECRET of fire may be lost to humanity, the fact that they're the only ones who can't breathe water should mean that they still have some elemental connection to it.

It would also explain why everything else that uses fire (photosynthesis, chemosynthesis, convection, magma, steam, et cetera) is functioning just fine. They don't need to know how it works, they just do it.

Cavitation would still be represented as bludgeoning damage in D&D terms, though, since cavitation isn't its own damage type. And I defy you to tell me that a class capable of doubling its speed as it levels up isn't capable of shrimp-style punching.

I am dealing with a War cleric 4/ Fighter 1 with Polearm master, sentinel, and tunnel fighter fighting style. Minotaur were "too easy".

Have enemies gain advantage against him (for instance, from being hidden).
Ranged spells that force saves.
Enemies with reach greater than or equal to his.
Disarm him.
Traps.

Just make sure that he's on board with you doing this to give him a greater challenge. Because if he's having fun and everyone else is having fun, and you shit on it, you're just being That Guy.

> how in the hell does this system work.

Hmm, I don't know anon...
>>
So since we're doing world building here, I was wondering if someone could help me out with my idea too.
What I have is basically a slightly steampunk world (elves, dwarves, highest level of tech is fairly simple firearms and hot air balloons, one of the human cities has a steam-powered underground tram and a "no horse shit in the city centre" rule) where the humans are mostly about tech because they're generally poor at magic, while the dwarves are isolationist and high-tech in their own way (Roman Empire type torsion tech turned up to 11 with magic-aided metallurgy), and the elves ignore tech for basically magic because they have loads of it. Civilisation is based on the two continents that elves and humans started out on, which are connected in a Eurasia-like way, and a smaller continent a bit further away about half the size of Australia where dwarves started out. The dwarves are mostly living in their mountain strongholds, so the land of Australia is still mostly uninhabited, and that's why the humans and elves are colonising it for the last fifty years or so. There are three main countries colonising Australia, and also elves from several elf nations doing a joint venture. The plot would be based around the colonies of a slightly militant human nation, a highly religious independent human colony, and the freshly independent colony of "freedom, fuck yeah!", interacting with the dwarves who aren't too pleased about their land being grabbed by foreigners.
What I was wondering was if anyone knew how I could spice this setting up? Right now it's pretty much looking like a very bland "Eberron"-"18th century Europe-America relations" mix.

My group basically does multiple games in our own settings and so far we've had a "everything is set on islands floating around in the air" setting, a "totally not the nation of Cheliax from Pathfinder" setting, and a "Ice Age Apocalypse" setting. Apart from the Ice Age Apocalypse, it's all been pretty shit so far, unfortunately.

You can fabricate a Large or smaller object

material.

40ft long bridge per casting seems pretty damn long, why wouldn't this be bridge worthy again?

Find some monsters that target his bad saving throws, try something like a Mind Flayer Arcanist commanding a hive of Intellect Devourers for the next Big Bad if you really wanna challenge him.

If his weapon is non-magical, try a Black Pudding.

Try to include more spell casters in general in your encounters.

I played 4E for a few years and I never thought the "samey" complaint was very justified. Most classes had enough going for them in terms of features, builds, and feats that you could make them stand out if you wanted to. Overall I'm also enjoying 5E but I certainly miss the comparative clarity that 4E's powers usually had.
>>
>>44706554
Oh, obviously. I don't want to kill this character until they have the ability to cast raise dead if wanted (though he is the cleric). He is one of my best, and I value providing entertaining gameplay. Part of being entertaining is challenging my players creativity.

It sounds like he is pretty good against big dumb brutes that stay in melee. Its usually pretty normal for most builds to have at least one thing like this that they excel at. The problem is it seems like thats the kind of encounter you like to run. Ranged creatures, spell casters, and the environment are your friend anon. Have traps that are triggered during combat, or hobgoblins fucking shit up from murderholes. How does this party deal with fireballs? Fireballs from a pyromancer who has summoned fire elementals?

I'm running PotA. Right now they have not fought the fire cult at all, and just finished a five combat brawl in the gardens of the earth cult monastery. I was nice with the Unber Hulk, who dropped players then fled to wreak more havoc in the surrounding hills. There are still enemies there, but for the parties purposes they consider it a rousing victory. They were doing this as a job for the air cult, as all but the cleric (the only surviving original member) have not fought them. The Air cult (through representatives from Feathergale Knights) is going to surprise them at their next long rest, offer fast travel to a town of the parties choosing, and take them there to receive payment. But first there will be a minor detour to force evil actions from the party, as the Air Cult has learned of the Aaracokra paired near their dungeon, and want to force the cleric to help them kill the bird people. This is important, as the party was saved at level two by these Aarocokra, and basically lied to them for help. The diminished tribe will attack after a few biting verbal attacks, along with their hidden Air Elemental ally. If the party aides the cult, they receive their promised reward (4,000 GP, scrolls of gaseous form, invisibility, and fly, six basic healing potions, oil of slipperiness, two potions of climbing, a potion of fire breathing, and a potion of water breathing) and the location of the water cult. If the party refuses and aides the Aarocokra (and survives, since I'm thinking of having five Aarocokra vs. ten Knights, a priest, seven hippogriffs, and a giant vulture) I am thinking of gifting the party an Air Elemental Gem, from the DMG. If the Aarocokra suffer minor losses due to help from the party, I was thinking of allowing future characters to be of that race. Thoughts?

Okay, I like that. I was essentially going to do a mini-underdark based out of abandoned Dwarven cities and strongholds, but my idea for that was sidequests or peripheral events. Focusing on it sounds like it could be interesting, and it would give the dwarves a reason to have an arms race. I'll have the elves try to muscle in on it too I guess.

If you have a character in the party who is a dragon sorcerer who always wears a hood due to facial deformities, and the other members of the party are hassling them to see their face, can't I just roll a persuade check to try and persuade one of them to give up? What would that be contested against? Or is the skill not meant to be used that way, like, against other players?
>>
>>44708307
You can either tell the other players OOC to just give up because it won't happen, or have him get really upset because they won't drop it, and show them his face. Describe it in excruciating detail, then end by saying that, once they're able to peel their eyes away from all his deformities, they have just enough time to see how sad and hurt he is before he pulls the hood back up and turns away.

Use good roleplaying to make them feel bad for their characters being a dick to this other character.
>>
>>44708307
There's an unwritten rule about fucking with player agency: don't do it. You'll be hard-pressed to have the group respect the results of the roll, and (were I the DM) the DM would probably not enforce it.

I'd talk to your dm/group OOC and ask them to knock it off.

Hmm, I guess. It's a halfling who is more curious than being mean-spirited, though. Considering how standoffish my character is, and how open and outgoing the halfling is, it was bound to happen.

Does the Archery fighting style work with a melee weapon that you throw? No, the Archery feature benefits ranged weapons. A melee weapon, such as a dagger or handaxe, is still a melee weapon when you make a ranged attack with it.

Me and my friends tried getting into RPGs with the D&D Mines of Phandelver starter set.

We had a lot of fun and decided to keep going, but I don't know the first thing about building a world with quests and NPCs and encounters to interact with short of just making up random shit on the spot.

Are there any resources out there for turbo-beginners like me (us)?

Everything I find on Google seems to be geared to DMs who want to improve their worlds, not DMs lost before they even get that far.

Weapon bond only requires the weapon to be on the same plane as you. Getting it back anyway.

The way I do it is come up with some dungeon ideas, with a goal (say, retrieve an artifact), a general type of creature (undead maybe). Then place it in a location that makes sense for that dungeon. (why has the artifact gone untouched? where and why do the undead walk? Is there a lich in or around the dungeon?)
Now that we have a quest and a dungeon, we can think about who would want that artifact, and why. (can the artifact aid in killing the lich? does it lead to lichdom? is the lich the questgiver's great grandfather?) So far this is a pretty generic and linear quest, so you can spice it up some (does someone else want the artifact? maybe someone's loved ones are among the undead, and asks you to bring their remains. maybe the risen dead are marching on the town. maybe you hear a rumor that there is a second artifact, or there is no artifact)
Make a couple of dungeons in similar fashion and place the origins wherever fits. (on the way to get the artifact from the lich, a druid living in the woods asks them to dispatch an enraged dire bear killing the wildlife in the area)
>>
>>44709758
Okay, so you plan an encounter, then additional encounters, then an encompassing dungeon and quest.

That makes sense, I can do that. Should get me through at least the first session, anyways, and then I'll have more to work off of.

I was worrying about developing an entire world before we started, but you've made me realize I don't need to make anything but a single town and a dungeon or two. Thanks, anon, that was very helpful.

Anyone use/allow use of the Player's Companion update book? I just started a little campaign with it, and so far, it's looking quite silly... Party has an Aarakocra monk, who have a racial bonus to unarmed attacks cause talons. Making monk able to attack twice per turn with a 2d4+4 punch, half bludgeon, half slashing. How effective it is makes me want to kill myself.

A-at least it isn't the 3.5 monk...

>>44709916
The rest of the party is kinda autistic... Wizard, Sorcerer, and that monk... Pretty sure 60% of the killing was done by the monk.
>>
>>44709903
Where are you getting 2d4 from? If a monk aarakocra punches they don't magically do double damage because they have claws.
Correct me if I've missed something.
>>
>>44709903
It doesn't work that way. The Aarakocra's Talons racial ability states:
>You are proficient with your unarmed strikes, which deal 1d4 slashing damage on a hit.
While the Monk's Martial Arts feature states:
>You can roll a d4 in place of the normal damage of your unarmed strike or monk weapon. This die changes as you gain monk levels, as shown in the Martial Arts column of the Monk table.
Therefore, an Aarakocra Monk can choose to roll a a d4 in the place of 1d4, and does not add the dice together. In other words, he should deal exactly the same damage as a normal Monk.
>>
>>44710004
You've missed nothing. The Aarakocra racial gives you d4 unarmed without the need to be a monk, but they do not stack.

>>44709903
You fucked up. You can take the extra d4 from the player and put up with the ensuing fallout, or you can pussy out and lay in the bed you've made.

Good luck.
>>
>>44710032
Still, it seems like it was intended to work that way. Otherwise, why would talons be useful to anyone ever?
>>
>>44710069
Because normal unarmed strikes deal 1 damage.

>You can inspire others through stirring words or music. To do so, you use a bonus action on your turn to choose one creature other than yourself within 60 feet of you who can hear you.
It doesn't have to be a performance; it could simply be a short speech or even a particularly appropriate one-liner. The only requirement is that they can hear you.

So yes.
>>
>>44710183
The UA mostly focused on character options, two of which made it into the SCAG. You can find that in the mega.

The minotaur PC race has had mixed reception; there was kind of a shitfest in the /5eg/ a few threads back. It is very powerful, but maybe a little feature heavy.

The Mariner fighting style is nothing to write home about.

My campaign setting is very heavily naval. I took some pointers from Rogue Trader for abstracting naval combat and simplified them for 5e. I followed the general pattern for ship hulls in the DMG, but also created a "naval" weapon quality that ignores a ship's damage threshold.

Don't overthink it. Have fun.

I feel like I really lucked out, especially since it was just a bunch of randoms. DM seems to really have his shit together, too. There's like a wiki/blog that has the whole plot and characters list.

I decided on making a Tiefling Cleric of Mask who has been tasked with promoting the holy art of gambling, as that is legal thievery.

Spirit Guardians is one of the best, because you can activate it, then next turn disengage and then run around dealing lots of damage to large groups.
>>
>>44709859
>>44709758
To add onto this, if there is some villain or plot that you want them to go after, make sure that you plan that out first. You want to have the villain doing things that makes sense to their plan, while your players are learning about that plan and how to stop it.

For example, if a noble is trying to raise an army of undead, first he needs a necromancer or their powers. Maybe the characters fight the necromancer and they find something on him that leads them to discover the noble's plans. Basically, you want breadcrumbs. You want them to finish an encounter and immediately have a new goal or direction.

>>44710409
I was reading about that spell and it seems kind of busted. Also Inflict Wounds seems kind of ridiculous.

The offending features cited previously included the d10 horns damage + advantage on shoving, the ability to make a horn attack as a bonus action when dashing, and the ability to shove after any use of the attack action. Also, subraces notwithstanding, most races don't get to pick their racial bonuses. There are 2 other ribbons that weren't mentioned.

An interesting side affect of the wording on Horns is that, of your DM wanted to be a complete shitbasket, he could rule that minotaur monks never gain the benefit of FoB or the extra unarmed attack.
>>
>>44710330
Some spells have a degree of reflavorability to them. For instance, Guidance could be anything from being empowered with just a touch of divine skill to literally praying to your god for guidance.

Look through the Cleric spell list for spells with effects that look appropriate to you, and then reflavor them if necessary. Detect Magic could be something you learned to sniff out Illusionists and Enchanters trying to cheat. Protection from Good and Evil could have been a ward against them granted by your god. Bless could be your god stacking the odds in your allies' favor.

Then level 2 has Augury, Calm Emotions, Enhance Ability and Zone of Truth.

And remember that you can prepare new spells from your entire list every day.

I do have to say that I don't, offhand, remember a lot of spells that would be good for running a casino that would also be particularly useful outside of one.
>>
>>44710495
I like Zone of Truth, Blessing, and Detect Magic a lot. I'll make sure to have those queued. As for running a casino, that's the end goal. That's the reason for adventuring. You have to have capital to have a casino.

It's note entirely unheard of. Loads of knight artwork from the 16th century and later had knights wearing jackets over their armour. We don't know if that's something they really did do, but the 16th century people were a lot closer to the history of knights than we are.

People forgot about it when they were arguing about the fucking sun, but the gillyweed solution, or something similar, is a really good idea.

Basically keep the bubble cities, with no modifications to humans. At the same time, make an easily accessible SHORT TERM water breathing method available- potions, a special plant, whatever. Each dose lasts for an hour, gives water breathing and maybe some small swimming speed.

This means that the sorcerers can still reign over their bubble cities- no one can get more than a day's swim away from the city without eventually needing to sleep/drown.

Plus, maybe the sorcerer kings have some trained animals with a much faster swim speed. So like, a peasant could flee the city with a pocketfull of weed, maybe get lucky and find a few air pockets in caves to sleep in. But then the sorcerer just sends out a raiding party that can move 4 times as fast as the peasant, and boom, captured.

I've tried familiar with a couple different characters and it's always more of a chore than a flavor.

OK, thanks. I will probably go half-elf. I really want that darkvision.

Why is land druid such shit? I honestly can't think of a reason to play it over the moon druid. You both can cast spells except the moon druid can become a fucking bear earlier and be generally more useful.

The druid spell list is really REALLY mediocre too. Lots of spells that can friendly fire your team and fuck make things annoying. Like spike growth... what a shit spell.

Which is why being a half-ling or human in a group with a bunch of dark vision FAGGOTS is pure suffering.

>>44711953
This must be a couple of weeks now you're coming back and posting this, yeah?

That or you're just an unoriginal little shit.

I've always wanted to houserule away darkvision (or turn it into a temporary thing per short rest)

A Sun Sword is basically a lightsaber, just putting that out there.

That honestly sounds pretty cool.

>>44712059

Why would you do that? Darkvision is perfectly balanced. Why do you hate dark vision? You don't like players being able to see your SHITTY setups?
>>
>>44712208
m-my setups aren't shitty

what >>44711824 but its a great feat if you want to pilfer more useful spells like, as I said before, Hex. Useful for you and your damage, useful for any status spells you take that cause Ability checks, and useful for other party members who can force the target to make Ability checks to make their spells or class features work.

If I sound like I'm promoting it hard that is because its a DAMN GOOD first level spell.

The rules surrounding ranged/throwing shit is the worst, most infuriating thing about 5e.

Does Archery fighting style work with thrown? No, it's still a melee weapon when you make a ranged attack with it.
Oh, ok. So I can Smite with a thrown javelin then, since it's a melee weapon attack. NOPE FAGGOT, because it's a ranged melee weapon attack (??). But you can get a Sneak Attack with a thrown weapon, as long as it has the finesse property!

Then you have shit like Crossbow Expert working on ranged spell attacks and it's just one big ball of FUCK.

I'm working on a build for a Rock Gnome conjuration wizard with the Guild Artisan background. I've always wanted to play a proper inventor character in a campaign and run a business to help handle the party's finances, so I'm working on business ideas.

My main questions are:

Is there a general power level for the different tiers of magic items? I want to invent new items but we will need pricing guidelines for what I'm making.

Is there any way to gain more tool proficiencies beyond the ones that come with the background and rock gnome race?

What are tinker's tools even for? I understand smith's tools, carpentry, alchemy, etc., and I'm thinking tinker's tools are for clockwork toys and gadgets and the like. Is that right?

Essentially I'm looking to become the CEO of d&d Wal-Mart for this setting, selling everything under the sun for competitive prices all across the realm.

A star is a nuclear reactor not a bonfire.
There's no actual fire at all involved, it's far too hot for fire to exist.
A star would have to be very weak and dim for the actual chemical reaction of combustion to occur on even the coolest portions of it's surface.

Eh I say trying figure out combat with an independent mount is worse. Although thrown weapons are pretty fucked, while Smiting doesn't work with them the d8 from Improved Smiting does.

I'm just saying it ain't fire ya idjit.

Name my super sexy half-elf sorcerer. Man look at him. I edited the original image to make him sexier, it was a labor of love. OMG look at him

Uh, no, the sun is the glass shield carried on the back of Poczi, The Blue Warrior, Mirror of the Sky. He keeps his daily vigil over the bound beast Siipak before the change of watch, where he is relieved by his sister Epakal, the Ebon Maiden.

Learn to mythology, pleb.

Hm..8 months of downtime..I'll have to talk to our DM about it

>Crafting magic items
>In 5e

Yeeeeaaah, good luck with that.
>>
>>44712459

Well that's still not fire.

>>44712464
I guess I skimmed the thread too quickly.
>>
>>44712552
Well there are rules for it in the DMG..basic stuff takes a few days to 3 weeks to craft, and that covers the bulk of what I would be able to actually sell at a chain store. Magical stormlighters, everburning torches, self cleaning tableware..that kind of thing

Everybody understands tinkering to mean basically that nowadays, thanks to popular videogames. But as I know the word, it refers to "tinsmiths", usually gypsies, who would travel from village to village fixing cutlery, pots and pans.

>>44712600
>crafting wondrous magical items
>so you can sell them en masse like you're a fantasy FUCKING K-MART
I DON'T UNDERSTAND
IF YOU WANT TO SELL SHIT TO PEOPLE YOU CAN DO THAT IN REAL LIFE AND IT FUCKING SUCKS
>>
>>44712733
Exactly. Running a business in fantasyland is way more fun than dealing with strangers on craigslist.
