World of Warcraft Undead[edit]

Posting here for widest assistance. I looked for something rated to the subject/headline and I’m empty handed. Does any admin know of a 5e version of a WoW undead race? BigShotFancyMan (talk) 09:56, 10 November 2017 (MST)

How about Blood Elf, WoW (5e Race) and Death Knight, Variant (5e Class)? --Green Dragon (talk) 11:16, 10 November 2017 (MST)
Player specifically wants the Undead one :/ but if I need something like this it’s great to know :) BigShotFancyMan (talk) 11:21, 10 November 2017 (MST)
I would just multiclass as a Death Knight, Variant (5e Class). Of course I know little about WoW. The Tavern is a good place to get this type of information. --Green Dragon (talk) 11:24, 10 November 2017 (MST)
Just an update, I found something called "Forsaken" that was done up by someone elsewhere. My player said it'd work for him so all is well in that regard. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 08:45, 3 December 2017 (MST)

changing archetype to subclass?[edit]

I've been a bit busy and noticed this change happened. Just curious about the reasoning? Consistency amongst all editions or did WotC/Crawford decide to change the category on these? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by BigShotFancyMan (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts!

See Talk:5e Subclasses. It's what they're called in Xanathar's Guide to Everything. - Guy (talk) 08:14, 3 December 2017 (MST)
Thanks for adding my signature, I checked my other posts and missed another one! ugh. Thanks for linking the discussion too. A great read and glad I am up to snuff on things. Might have to get that XGE book, keep hearing good things. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 08:48, 3 December 2017 (MST)

Am I out of line?[edit]

"This might just be me, so any admin please correct me, but "username", you have "x" pieces of incomplete, hard to read, unbalanced work. I can understand getting bored and working on something different to break up monotony but you're just pumping hard to read content into the site daily." I am wanting to address this but is it worth the time? Am I being rude by wiki standards? I'd add more but wanted to ask admin/wiki before going forward. What am I not considering? BigShotFancyMan (talk) 12:16, 14 December 2017 (MST)

I am confused with your response. Could you please supply me with a link?
Otherwise, you should not attack another user. This comment could be perceived as an attack. Its hard to know without the context, since it could also be constructive criticism about time per edit, with regard to a quantitative measurement. As I said, we need a context. --Green Dragon (talk) 14:10, 14 December 2017 (MST)

Problems when login in[edit]

Guys, when a try to login with my original account, Kalkaham, it redirects me to an error message page, since it's in portuguese, my natural language, I'll transcript the lines of the message:

Line 1: "This page is not working"

Line 2: " can't answer (attend) this solicitation right now"

Line 3: "HTTP ERROR 500"

Blue Button: "Reload"

This mistake keeps happening every time I login with that account so I created this one just a sec ago to see if we could solve this.

--Hinokaki (talk) 16:54, 23 December 2017 (MST)

  • Sorry, didn't know how to put the print in here.
Try putting in "https" instead of "http" into your browser, and let me know if that resolves your problem. --Green Dragon (talk) 05:57, 25 December 2017 (MST)

Question regarding userpage content[edit]

I have a saved copy of a 5e class which was deleted because it didn't meet this site's standards for balance and quality of writing. Am I allowed to upload it verbatim as one of my userpages? And if I do so, can I reasonably expect that the page I create will not be edited or deleted? I know I'm encouraged to be creative with how I use my userpages, but still I'd like to ask. Quincy (talk) 17:38, 13 January 2018 (MST)

Yes, of course. You may add any pages you want to have within your userspace. --Green Dragon (talk) 06:41, 14 January 2018 (MST)
Thanks! Quincy (talk) 08:03, 14 January 2018 (MST)

Discussion topics for 3rd party content[edit]

Xanathar's Guide to Everything has the subclass Arcane Archer. I am curious if it'd be appropriate to put on the discussion page some home rules I found on Reddit that make the subclass legit good vs. a subclass you just don't feel sure about. (think how PH ranger feels vs UA ranger). BigShotFancyMan (talk) 12:32, 22 January 2018 (MST)

If it is something on Reddit, please don't post it here unless you wrote it. I don't know their licensing situation. I also have no idea what talk page you want to post it on. --Green Dragon (talk) 22:50, 22 January 2018 (MST)
Looking at reddit's user agreement, under the section "your content," they state "You retain the rights to your copyrighted content or information that you submit to reddit..." It's not okay to copy-paste or repeat verbatim something you found on reddit unless you have permission from the person who wrote it. It might be okay to restate the idea in your own words (disclaimer: IANAL), but it would be best to err on the side of caution and either ask permission to reproduce the content or just not reproduce it at all. — Geodude671 Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎ . . 23:34, 22 January 2018 (MST)
@Green Dragon, the Xanathar's Guide to Everything talk page, and it isn't like a homebrew class or and entire piece of work. It is some rule variations to the Arcane Archer subclass features that I'd think others could benefit. I'd of course be paraphrasing because I haven't the slightest clue what was said verbatim. I figured there'd be an issue with WoTC copyright stuff if anything, not what a post on Reddit says :/ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 06:45, 23 January 2018 (MST)
This whole site is full of modified WotC copyright stuff, so I'm not sure what the issue would be. There's nothing wrong with being inspired by a reddit post either, which is what it sounds like you mean. And are you talking about this page? Please don't add homebrew to that page's talk page, as it's not the proper place. If you want to create a homebrew variant of the Arcane Archer, you can! Just use the (5e Subclass Variant) page ID and the normal subclass preload. Again: variants of WotC content are many and allowed on D&D Wiki, so don't worry about it :) --GamerAim Chatmod.png (talk) 06:51, 23 January 2018 (MST)
No no, I am not going for Arcane Archer variant. The rest is correct. I will post to my talk page, but I would prefer it be somewhere people would actually seek the information out to where it could be helpful for their gameplay. If I cannot, so be it, it is why I asked. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 07:19, 23 January 2018 (MST)
You are right that "inspired" WotC content is not the same as possible "errata" for Xanathar's Guide to Everything. Since you are not copying anything verbatim, just add the errata into your userspace, and we will add a link from the XGtE page to your userspace under a "Homebrew Errata" title. End reason is that your page is also important, and many people may want to see it alonside the information about the XGtE book. --Green Dragon (talk) 09:26, 23 January 2018 (MST)
Thank you both. I've got links on my user space (I think, that is not the same thing as talk page I assume). If I haven't done this correctly, I'd love to learn what was meant. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 09:38, 23 January 2018 (MST)


i have a serious question i want to review some of the races and classes on this site on my YouTube channel but im afraid of copyright and things like yeah help me out with that plz Alucarddragonborn (talk) 14:48, 1 February 2018 (MST)

That is totally fine, and encouraged. The GNU FDL license works just fine with such a thing. You should mention the main contributor's for the page though. --Green Dragon (talk) 22:19, 1 February 2018 (MST)
Are there any pages in particular you were considering? SirSprinkles (talk) 22:21, 1 February 2018 (MST)
For the first video i was thinking i would do the overlord class the dark knight class and the arcane archer classes just to name a few.Alucarddragonborn (talk) 10:21, 2 February 2018 (MST)
Working your way through the Favored Articles might be a good idea. They're intended to be the best of what we've got to offer. --Salasay 19:18, 2 February 2018 (MST)

D&D Wiki was down for a few hours last night[edit]

Should I be worried? Quincy (talk) 10:40, 4 February 2018 (MST)

Sorry that this took so long to attend to. Blue Dragon is on vacation and was not available at the time this happened. --Green Dragon (talk) 22:36, 4 February 2018 (MST)

Collapsible Windows[edit]

Mr. Curious over here, is formatting discussions like the Talk:Decidueye (5e Race) page beneficial for the wiki? (like loading speed) I am not sure if it's just resistance to change for me or there's reasonable concern that formatting pages like this is tedious to make extra "clicks" to see different discussions. thanks BigShotFancyMan (talk) 08:56, 6 March 2018 (MST)

It does seem like a good idea to archive discussion when it is no longer relevant, though I've mostly seen people throw it onto a separate page. — Geodude671 Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎ . . 09:08, 6 March 2018 (MST)
I agree to remove irrelevant discussions. Not sure that applies to race/class talk pages is all. I'd rather it be collapsible than another page though lol loading times are a pain! BigShotFancyMan (talk) 10:09, 6 March 2018 (MST)

No kidding Alucarddragonborn (talk) 11:45, 6 March 2018 (MST)

You may choose to do this, but the recommended formatting from Wikipedia is to archive past discussions. --Green Dragon (talk) 22:56, 6 March 2018 (MST)
Great to know. Thanks GD. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 08:06, 7 March 2018 (MST)
