Talk:Teddy Bear (4e Race)
From D&D Wiki
A Few Things
- Ability Scores: This is broken. For balance purposes, in 4e, no race gets more then +2 to two abilities and you never ever try to balance a race with a negative.
- Playful: The word "defenses" is misspelled.
- Cute Charm: I think it should just be a Blast 3, it reads kinda confusing at the moment. I also think you can drop the Prerequisite and Requirement fields, and just and a Special field that says; "Blind creatures are immune." Also the Hit field should say; "Target is Stunned until the end of your next turn.", and the Miss field should read; "Target is Dazed until the end of your next turn."
Thank you for your time. -- Sepsis 16:46, 3 April 2009 (MDT)
Here is a revised "power card" for Cute Charm:

- Thank you for noting my page. I think the revised verison of Cute Charm is great. Though the ability scores are okay, since Teddy Bears are usally not the smartist when they are shown as alive. By the way, how many people are members of this wiki? -Creator of Page. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs) 18:52, 16 April 2009 (MDT). Please sign your posts!
- The main point behind mentioning the Ability Scores was to underscore the fact that using a negative as a modifier is outside of standard 4e design standards. While you can leave it unchanged you should use the "Template:Design Disclaimer" to note that you know this is a broken creation and that was your intent. It keeps new folks from thinking we just allow anything to be posted (broken or not), or that we are unaware that it is broken. At least with the disclaimer, you let them know that they may need to make some corrections if they only allow balanced material in their campaign. As for the population of the Wiki...I don't know an exact number, but I do believe it is in the thousands. -- Sepsis 06:07, 18 April 2009 (MDT)
- Okay, I took your advice and changed the ability scores. --184.108.40.206 4:45 PM (Central Time), 20 April 2009.
A large AoE attack that hits a non-AC-defense and stuns, as a level 1 encounter power? I suggest making it a daily power instead. 220.127.116.11 13:26, 15 December 2011 (MST)
I was rereading your "fluff" and noticed the comment; "Teddy bears usually don't care to wear clothes. When a circumstance arises in which they do need some sort of clothing, they wear nothing more then rags." I know this is fluff and can be ignored (allowing Players to use various armors), but I believe you wanted this to be a big part of their appearance and flavor. To compensate you may just want to encourage the wearing of nothing by updating the Playful trait into something like; "Unencumbered Defense: When wearing Cloth Armor, or no armor, you gain a +2 racial bonus to all defenses."
This way Players can still wear armor, but given the bonus they have to really consider if they want to or take the bonus of going au naturale. -- Sepsis 17:00, 24 April 2009 (MDT)
- What is a fluff? --chihuahua0 18:52, 25 April 2009 (MDT)
- "Fluff" is all the non-mechanical information given about a race (or any 4e subject) that is used to guide Players and/or DMs in how to play or present the race. Such as the Playing a..., Physical Qualities, Characteristics, Names, etc. -- Sepsis 09:02, 26 April 2009 (MDT)
I am making an race and here's the link: Beetleman (4e Race) and I was thinking that beetles are light, and I saw Teddy Bears and saw their weight is 80-90 ib. But my creation weight is 90-130ib. Aren't a bunch of beetles are lighter then one teddy bear? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs) 14:39, 30 May 2009 (MST). Please sign your posts!
- Well, your race is Medium, and Small creatures usually weight less. --chihuahua0 09:00, 31 May 2009 (MDT)
