I am considering a GOO Warlock, who just had fun running around impersonating everybody with disguise and alter self, and has created so many alternate identities, that the Warlock no longer remembers what the original body he had looks like. Even the gender is lost to time, and the identity has just become a "whatever I feel like today", or even a "Hey looking like this might be useful" and then changes into that.

Any thoughts on this? Any Warlock options I should consider? We are not allowed MC, but even then, I feel a bit overwhelmed having to pick so many spells, before really having a feel for the character. Especially the level 6+ spells, as they are so locked in place once I pick them, that I really feel i can't afford to mess those up.

I'm pretty clueless about casting and about to roll an EK (no multiclassing planned for now), from what I've read there are roughly 2 types, the ones that concentrate on support spells like shield and are actually encouraged to dump int and the ones with high int using evocation spells. I'm planning on playing the second type, is going snb the best way to go? It seems like a great weapon EK simply does too much damage with his normal attacks to justify forgoing them to cast a spell, even with a decent int.

Tell your DM to fuck off and to not tell you how your character works in roleplay. Wolves and Dire Wolves have an Int of 3 and can be house trained. Not that hard to imagine a playable race knows not to shit where they stand. I'd also argue Intelligence has no bearing on learning languages so there's no reason you shouldn't be able to speak.

Also since your DM seems to want to be a shit eater there's no reason your character should work with the party if he still says you work off instinct. Just say your character sees animals it likes to eat and then run off into the woods to never be seen again. Roll new character.

Oh, also, sorcery cost aside I'm not sure if shadow blade's damage counts as 'spell damage'. It conjures a 2d8 damage weapon, and then you make weapon attacks with it rather than spell attacks.

That's poor reasoning.
If I put a weapon on the weapon table and you found it and it dealt psychic instead of slashing damage, it wouldn't be spell damage. Kenseis can even pick shadow blade as a kensei weapon.

I think what should be asked is:
If you cast 'magic weapon' on a weapon and give it a +2, then attack someone who halves spell damage, does the weapon do [Usual damage]+1 or [Usual damage]+2?

>> No.57011876

>>57011814
It's not that simple.
You could use a spell to create an ordinary sword or a magical sword, but I imagine either both are subject to spell resistance or neither is.

I think the deciding factor though is that shadow blade isn't an instantaneous spell, which means that it's ongoing and that it might count as spell damage for that, maybe. But I've been looking through sage advice of similar examples such as elemental weapon and magic weapon spells and I haven't found anything thus far because nobody would ask this question because it's mostly just pointless, you don't come across enemies with spell resistance and there's no reason to use the +spell damage there.

Oh, no, here's a good question - Does shadow blade also add extra spell damage from shit like stone sorcerer's ability or evocation wizard's ability?
But I'm still not finding any relevant sage advice on that question either.

Does that mean using a spell to indirectly cause damage counts for the extra force damage for stone sorcerer's feature?
i.e. conjuring creatures that immediately on your round (somehow, don't question it) attack.

It seems that way for the previous spell, that it's a case of indirect damage through attacking with a conjured weapon. The 2d8 damage is a part of the weapon's properties rather than the spell damage, in one theory. Or it could be spell damage.
The point of asking all these similar questions is to try to find actual evidence from sage advice and shit that can then apply to shadow blade.

Standard time divisions are either 1 hour or 8 hours usually, but I guess 4 hours is a good inbetween.
Just remember that thunderbolt could be used by ranged guys with two-handed or one-handed weapons by drawing a dagger after firing your weapon and then dropping the dagger at the start of your next turn to fire, then drawing another dagger at the end of the round.

>Do you have players in your group who actually believe in lucky dice?

My group actually has a lot of inputs on this kind of thing.

One guy always gets bad rolls when he's a player, but if he lends his dice to someone else, they do pretty well usually. This has lead him to multiple times running the numbers on his dice and selects a set of seven dice from his collection that are "doing well lately" he has one d20 that always makes an appearance. He even named it.

Another of our players believes that if you buy dice for yourself, they won't roll as well as a set given to you as a gift. That being said, she rolls pretty well with dice she gets from scoops.

Another player will do a roll at the start of the night to see how well he thinks the game is going to go that night. Of course, he doesn't let it actually effect how he plays or anything, but it's really funny when he rolled a 1 the night of a big fight.

I was taught that dice have a set number of high numbers and low numbers, and they should balance out in a way, unless they really are a blessed die or something. So when you roll a bad roll, at least it's out of the way to make room for a better one, and if you roll a good roll without it meaning anything, you've wasted it and need to keep rolling to see a good number so that everything is reset to 0. I don't really believe it, though.

Why rapier? Daggers are light, meaning you can use two of them at one (for the situations you want to have bonus action attack) and you can use them at range (for when you really don't want to get near the enemy).

If you insist on single-wielding, rapier might be better, but let's be honest - the two points of damage won't make significant difference.

It was part of random roll from the tables he claimed, my guess is he just thought it was cool, that we got at level 5. I was playing a dwarf and being far more clever than he anticipated used it like a weapon and a fuck you option in the middle of fights. The command words were "get off my lawn" in dwarvish.

My main use was a safe place to rest without burning a resource, but it really came in handy in fights. Throw it in the middle of some mooks, squishies and ranged guys would run in and start raining murder from it. Me and the other martial moved around the base keeping people from trying to scale it and mopping up those avoiding fire. He was a pretty cool DM and thought it was a pretty good use of tactics so he just tried to invent ways to make it less optimal than take it away.

Originally I found this, but it was outside of Organized play. With AL you can jump into Tier 3 games like its nothing.

Though don't always expect the tippy top tier folks in AL. I'm currently with a very experienced DM that's run countless modules and he straight up told me "I've never had a character like yours" (that is, full support and control Bard, that deals no damage)
We're level 8 right now, and I can't wait to hit 9, let alone 10. I feel like a well placed Wall of Force from Magical Secrets will break their brain.

Why? In D&D everything is tied to leveling up. There is no incremental improvement between levels, you get your stuff for (say) level 5, then you get nothing else new until you hit level 6, when you get another couple of new things.

In my experience, nobody has fun playing a static character for four or more sessions in a row. It gets stale. Players need to be drip-fed new toys and tools to keep the experience fresh. Two sessions is where I generally average, because that's usually enough time for players to get to grips with their new features but not long enough that their characters get stagnant.

I suspect your theory is wrong. As a DM, you don't need mechanical character progression because you can play a hundred different monsters over the course of the campaign and try out a dozen different playstyles through them. As a player, you've got your character sheet, and that's it. And they don't have enough tools on them to keep things mechanically fresh for more than two sessions or so.

Of course the story and plot and RP character development is vital as well, but it's meant to complement mechanical progression, not substitute for it.

I'm not sure what rarity value you are trying to get to for these. Which makes it harder to judge if they are too strong. I will assume Rare for now.

Good, though the flat healing is a bit boring. It does not seem bad.

>AMENONUHOKO
This is about the rarity of an uncommon item from my view so I would recommend making it so you can breathe in all environments, also, it should say.

"While attuned to Amenonuhoko you can breathe both air and water and gain a swimming speed equal to your movement speed."

>Army Scythe
So does the second shot happen as a part of the attack action? How many can this hold at once? You should probably give it a Reload (2) property similar to how the DMG guns work. This might be too strong depending on how you intend this to work.

>Asp's Nest
Why not make it so all the damage is poison? Its easier on the bookkeeping and makes sense.

>Blade of Demarche
This is too much, this is Stunning Strike on steroids. Though it may only affect one target, it WILL effect that single target, on a fighter or anyone with Haste/Extra attack this would be too much. Make it have 2 charges that the user can activate on a hit instead.

>Borok's Fist
It's fine. I would recommend a 1d4 lightning damage instead of a flat +2.

>Conlan's Hammer
Maybe have this one function like the Mace of Smiting instead of the extra weapon damage dices.

>Dragon's Bane
Why not use the Dragon Slayer? Keep the flavor.

Yeah my current game where my retired character specifically gained an entire level ahead of the party skewed the power of the character so I could have access to better damage than most of the party (couldn't beat our wizard of course). Then we had a guy come in of his volition at level 4 to our 10/11 party and gained exp at a faster rate. It's been more of a job babysitting him to not die even now when he's at level 9. Because of me encounters had to become harder to account for my increased damage and for him encounters have become easier to make sure he doesn't outright die when he gets hit by two enemies.

It's just doesn't make sense for a gm to do that when it literally becomes more work for them to ensure every encounter is fair for the lower leveled and higher leveled.

I suspect you'd have just as much fun playing a game with no mechanical progression on character sheets, but for most players in my experience that's not the case.

Barbarian's tank better and can do more consistent damage through GWM, Monks are more mobile, defensive, and can apply battlefield pressure through prone, removal of reactions, and stunning.

It's because most people, when they hear the word 'rape', equate it to 'forced, violent assault' rather than 'socially pressuring someone to acquiesce when they'd rather not, sometimes unknowingly'.

"1 in 4 women on campus will be violently assaulted, beaten and raped" is false.
"1 in 4 women on campus will be pressured into having sex when they don't want to" is accurate.

Ill give it to the GM, I don't know how this dude's ability works, but for the most part he's been taking souls and moving them from body to body so I'm going to assume he has a way to see through my invisibility.

Otherwise, my bard would just invisibility and run to the party, and that wouldn't be fun for the GM or the party

So I'm at least trying to be creative with how I run and juke this asshole. Leaving notes for the party to find me, with red herring false notes they should know the character would never say.

Prestidigitation and Minor illusion being used to make decoy versions of my bard hiding, running into universes and pulling the "I'm totally a part of this world, I am a native, yep nothing to see here."

Probably using mage hand similarly to pull a curtain/door to look like I went in one direction, then double back to try and u-turn towards my party.

The pugilist is exactly a barbarogue. Yes, it's a variant rule, but as things go:
Core Content > Multiclassing+Feats > Additional official content books >>> Homebrew
Multiclassing to achieve the effect is far better.

If you compare a str barbarogue's (probably barbarian5/rogueX) an a pugilist's damage, it's pretty much the same though barbarians have reckless attack which they might sometimes use and pugilists get a thing or two like haymaker which they might sometimes use.
If you compare their durability, they both are great at str+dex+con saves, can gain resistance to physical damage, though they may differ slightly with pugilist's temp HP and barbarogue having slightly more HP, uncanny dodge, so forth.
If you compare their combat utility, they both basically just grapple and shove. Both the pugilist and the barbarian can grapple and shove maybe even three times in a round, though the barbarogue will get advantage while raging and expertise, pugilist is probably actually slightly worse but I think they might have an ability that allows them to try four grapples/shoves in a turn or something.
Barbarogue is more mobile though since cunning action is more convenient and they'll get +10ft speed at some point. Barbarogue could also pick up ancestral guardian which makes them more relevant as a party 'tank'.

I can't recall the full summary I gave before but barbarogue is basically better, except that pugilist is better at staying alive through temporary HP spam.

Would Pugilist not work better as a homebrew Fighter sub-class? Here:

Level 3: Your unarmed strikes count as weapon attacks that deal 1d6 damage. While you're not wearing armour, your AC is equal to 10 plus your Strength modifier plus your Wisdom modifier.

Level 7: You have advantage on attacks against targets you have grappled, and gain Proficiency in Athletics.

Level 10: Your unarmed strikes use a d8 for their damage dice.

Level 15: You gain Expertise in Athletics.

Level 18: Your unarmed strikes now use a d10 for their damage dice, and count as magical for the purposes of overcoming damage resistances.

Interesting observation.

>> No.57015252

So, I've had a D&D campaign idea simmering in the back of my head for a long time, and I'm curious if 5e can run it well enough.

The basic gist is that the player end up stumbling upon a prophecy that says all the various evil races(Orcs, Giants, Goblins, etc, etc, etc) will end up gathering together in a huge battle that will decide the fate of the world.

Most of the campaign is supposed to be focused on getting ready for this battle/trying to prevent it, but the twist that comes late is that the evil races end up fighting on the side of good. Not in any sort of "lol good guys all along" way, but more in a "We live here too, of course we're going to try and save the place". So the last big arc of the campaign is running around with all these groups they've royally pissed off and attempting to build an actual army out of them.

So, knowing basically nothing about 5e, how well or poorly would it do at this? I'd be trying to do a couple big mass battles, a lot of demon fuckery, and some elements of investigation and diplomacy/lets try to not kill them.

Absolutely, the insistence that any kind of uninvited, unwanted or regretted sexual contact of any nature all falls under the same 'rape' category is probably doing much more harm than good.

Like it or not, the words 'rape' or 'assault' already have plenty of violent connotations, and using them to describe actions that don't fit those violent connotations just flips people's dissonance switches and they go "No, that's not right, that's not what that word means."

It's easier to invent a new word than redefine an old one, especially one so charged with significance.

I can live with a Barbarogue being a better option mechanically for the damage output do note though you have to get to about level 6+ to get this online. The Pugilist is just a class that gets it at level 1 and even feels different due to you having to gain that temp hp and choosing between offense or defense for your turn. It feels different from my experiences with it. Melee integrated counters, for example, is something that no other class can do.

Barbarogue works fine from level 1. You don't need 6+. Sure, the two classes won't get their features at the same time as each other but if anything that's just an upside for barbarogue as you can choose how you progress.

Even if it plays a little bit differently and some of the bits are a little bit different, barbarogue fills pretty much the exact same roles and doesn't resort to homebrewing, and my stance is that homebrew isn't worth it unless you're filling an actual gap like bloodhunter tries to do with a glass cannon bladelock sort of a thing.

>But the new “one in four” figure from the AAU survey may mislead readers, many of whom will interpret “sexual assault” as rape or other strictly criminal offenses. A closer look at the survey reveals that 11 percent of female undergraduates said they were assaulted in a way that is consistent with criminal definitions of rape or sodomy. Half of these female undergrads said force was involved, while the other half maintained they were incapacitated by alcohol.

>The study clashes with data gathered by the Justice Department between 1995 and 2013, which found that college-age women who aren’t students are more likely to be raped or sexually assaulted than women who are students. The number of victims was significantly lower than those in other recent surveys: 7.6 of 1,000 non-students compared to 6.1 of 1,000 students.

>AAU researchers acknowledged that their findings could reflect an inflated victimization rate at participating schools due to “non-response bias”; in other words, they determined that the hundreds of thousands of students who didn’t participate in their electronic survey (only 19 percent of those asked to take the survey did so) were less likely to have been sexually assaulted.

A level 1 barbarian who dedicates themselves to fisticuffs unless they are a Variant human will be doing extremely low damage. The sneak attack will come into play at higher levels then it becomes better. Again though the Pugilist at level 1 is doing solid damage with their fist and has a solid AC, another level down the line they get even better at punching people with the 1d6 & they get a ribbon, a level after that they are countering the people they are in melee with or have grapple tricks.

Some sort of punching weapon for 1d6 finesse slashing martial slashing. Not broken at all since it's identical to shortsword.
>The sneak attack will come into play at higher levels then it becomes better.
All sneak attack gives you is constant damage progression.
You have constant-ish damage progression with the same jump pugilist gets from extra attack, though maybe sneak attack does become even better later on in the game.
At low-mid levels I'm pretty sure the damage is just about the same if you compare rage-but-not-reckless to a pugilist with just the one bonus attack. You know, one attack and then a bonus attack, just exactly like the barbarian. Then two attacks and a bonsu attack just like the barbarian. Or the barbarian can pick up a shield, discard that bonus action attack and take shield master to shove with it instead, which is pretty much like pugilist, as well as still making almost gauranteed to succeed grapples with the attacks instead if they wish (only need to land one attack for sneak attack, they can afford to lose an attack or two)
>Solid AC
So it's probably the same as barbarian.
>Countering people in melee
