Halp, I need a page name changed[edit]

Hello again, SS5 with a typo that needs fixed. Is there any way to change page names after making an item as a user, or is it only possible for admins like yourself? (The page in question is Hearache Locket (5e Equipment) which is supposed to be spelled Heartache Locket) --Supersmily5 (talk) 22:20, 21 October 2017 (MDT)

Next to the "History" tab at the top of the screen, you should find the "Move" tab. Click on that tab and you can use it to rename pages, though some pages can only be moved by admins. SirSprinkles (talk) 23:53, 21 October 2017 (MDT)

Ah, I see. Thank you again friend. --Supersmily5 (talk) 08:17, 22 October 2017 (MDT)

Linking Page Questions[edit]

Hello, SS5 here, I need to know how to link homebrew pages to each other. Can you help me with that? Is it the same as linking SRD pages or is there a different bit of coding for it? --Supersmily5 (talk) 18:36, 27 September 2017 (MDT)

To create a link from one page to another on this wiki, simply place the desired page name in square brackets. For example, [[5e SRD:Fireball]] becomes 5e SRD:Fireball. By placing a vertical bar or "|" after the page name to create a link that doesn't necessarily use the page title as a link (5e SRD:Fireball doesn't gel well with standard writing, after all) and you can use italics and the like to create [[5e SRD:Fireball|''fireball'']], resulting in fireball. The same applies to pages that aren't in the SRD, like 5e Creatures. SirSprinkles (talk) 18:43, 27 September 2017 (MDT)

Okay thanks! I've copy pasted this comment to a notepad doc so you don't have to keep this section here if you don't want to. --Supersmily5 (talk) 19:22, 27 September 2017 (MDT)

Changes I've made[edit]

I'm new to creating anything for D&D, I have always been interested in the concept of the "Blade Dancer," I was so happy when I discover the Ranger Archetype " Blade Dancer. I noticed your comment on the discussion page, so I took the liberty of reworking the Blade Dancer Archetype to match what you suggested as well as a few of my own quirks. If your up for it could you review it and help me create it?? (It looks like the page was abandoned)-- User:Guilty_Heart (9-7-17)

Is there anything in particular that you are unsure of? SirSprinkles (talk) 22:47, 7 September 2017 (MDT)
Im still new to D&D so I was just looking to see if you could go over all of it, give me some tips. You seem to be very good at these kinds of things, soI I thought I would ask...--Guilty Heart (talk) 06:51, 8 September 2017 (MDT)

About 5e SRD[edit]

Good day to you, sir. I was creating sorcerer bloodlines and noticed that a lot of 5e spells haven't been added to SRD. As I'm a bit OC, I'm not comfortable seeing red links. Are we allowed to create SRD pages or are those exclusively under your control? If the former, are we limited to PHB spells, or are EE and SCAG spells allowed?

In addition, I noticed you creating links for terms such as conditions, advantage, disadvantage, etc. Should I link those whenever they appear, or would linking them at the first instance they appear be sufficient?

Thanks in advance!

Fermat (talk) 17:05, 27 September 2017 (MDT)

There's nothing stopping you from using spells that aren't in the SRD, but those that aren't in the SRD shouldn't have pages here for legal reasons. As for your other question, I link those wherever they appear, but you don't have to if you don't want to. SirSprinkles (talk) 18:28, 27 September 2017 (MDT)
If you want to reference spells that aren't in the SRD, you could do something like I did for the manakete, where I used a design note and didn't make the non-SRD spells red links. — Geodude671 (talk | contribs | email)‎ . . 18:51, 27 September 2017 (MDT)
Got it. Thanks for the input. —Fermat (talk) 16:50, 1 October 2017 (MDT)

Fire Emblem Creatures[edit]

Would you mind terribly if I took over the pages Archer (5e Creature) and Great Knight (5e Creature) for use in my campaign setting? If you want to keep using the Great Knight as an example for the Master template, maybe it could be renamed to "Master Knight" so I could use the name Great Knight for an enemy class? I suppose I could use the name Master Knight, but in FE the Master Knight class is very different fluff-wise from the Great Knight class as it is Lachesis' and Leif's version of a Lord class. — Geodude671 (talk | contribs | email)‎ . . 12:14, 2 October 2017 (MDT)

Alright, go ahead. SirSprinkles (talk) 20:05, 2 October 2017 (MDT)
Do you mind if I also take over Lancer (5e Creature)? — Geodude671 (talk | contribs | email)‎ . . 11:05, 4 October 2017 (MDT)

Talk pages not moving when you move a page[edit]

Hey SirSprinkles, I was wondering why when you move certain pages like the longknife(see signature conversation) and Arcane Archer (5e Class), the talk pages did not move to the changed name?--Blobby383b (talk) 14:18, 18 October 2017 (MDT)

It used to move both page and talk page, but it isn't doing that anymore. Perhaps we should raise this issue with User:Blue Dragon? SirSprinkles (talk) 14:21, 18 October 2017 (MDT)
Alright, I will bring it up and link these conversation as well.--Blobby383b (talk) 14:27, 18 October 2017 (MDT)
Hey SirSprinkles, it is Blobby383b again. Would you happen to know if the issue of talk pages not moving has fixed or not? --Blobby383b (talk) 20:53, 15 November 2017 (MST)

Crystal Club[edit]

Is it possible to use a magic weapon as an arcane focus? -- 13:05, 21 October 2017 (MDT)

If the weapon states that you can use it as a spellcasting focus, then you can use it as a spellcasting focus, otherwise, you could consult with your DM. SirSprinkles (talk) 13:58, 21 October 2017 (MDT)

Exploration and Environment - Tremorsense Update[edit]

Hey, I noticed that the page 5e_SRD:Exploration_and_Environment doesn't have a link to Tremorsense like it does with 5e_SRD:Blindsight,5e_SRD:Truesight and 5e_SRD:Darkvision. GamerAim told me I should come to you about it since you are thee 5e guy and my request is if you could add it in. Thanks, ConcealedLight (talk) 03:13, 3 November 2017 (MDT)

There's a link now. SirSprinkles (talk) 04:23, 3 November 2017 (MDT)

stupid question[edit]

Does Wil Wheaton ever use this site? You can tell me that it is none of my business if you want. -- 14:15, 4 November 2017 (MDT)

TBH, I don't know. SirSprinkles (talk) 19:08, 4 November 2017 (MDT)
Wil Wheaton has certainly linked to dandwiki in previous written articles. So we can infer he has used dandwiki at least once before. --SgtLion (talk) 10:22, 6 November 2017 (MST)

Welcoming users[edit]

Hi SS, I've noticed how prolific you are in welcoming users (and good work, by the way! I'm sure it's making a good difference). You may already be doing this on the sly, but I can offer you the services of my bot to do it automatically. It can be configured to only welcome users who have made a certain number of contributions, it can sign the welcome message as you, or as a random user from a given pool of users, if desired, and generally whatever other options one would wish for.

I'unno, it's not a big difference, I suppose. Having a bot leave welcome messages just seems a better option than doing it by hand, if that is indeed what you are doing. Lemme know if y'are interested. --SgtLion (talk) 10:20, 6 November 2017 (MST)

I don't know; I feel like it seems more personal if new users are welcomed by actual humans instead of some robot, even if the templated message is the same. — Geodude671 (talk | contribs | email)‎ . . 11:40, 6 November 2017 (MST)
For what it's worth, I have always felt that the welcoming of users is impersonal. Many times, users are welcomed before contributing, and rarely some have turned out to be spammers. I personally feel that a bot could prevent that and would be more personal for welcoming users who actually contribute, in addition to saving human time.--GamerAim Chatmod.png (talk) 13:56, 6 November 2017 (MST)
I don't use a bot for this task, but more than once in the past I have considered passing this task on to a bot. Maybe if we had a new welcome message that made it clear that the welcomer is the bot? SirSprinkles (talk) 15:53, 6 November 2017 (MST)
If we decide we want it, and somebody wants to make a welcome message for the bot to do, and we know who the bot should sign the post as, I can happily go ahead with that. --SgtLion (talk) 15:07, 7 November 2017 (MST)
Alright, I have created a variant of the welcome message at Template:Bot Welcome Message. If you have any suggestions for improvement, bring them up on the talk page. SirSprinkles (talk) 02:46, 20 November 2017 (MST)

Eon the Terrible[edit]

I want to do a Roc-sized Demonic Vulture. I have MOST of the details decided but my biggest problem is that I can't decide between a breath weapon that ages the target or the ability to cast a couple of time related spells (or both). Do you have any suggestions? (I plan to use it for a demiplane called the Archapelago of Last Years.) --Redrum 17:13, 8 November 2017 (MST)

Which spells were you thinking of? SirSprinkles (talk) 18:06, 8 November 2017 (MST)
The main spell I'm thinking of is Time Stop. --Redrum 17:31, 15 November 2017 (MST)
So, in theory, it uses time stop on its first turn, then gets an average of 3 turns to set up using other spells like haste (fits with the time theme) and using its movement to better position itself? Presumably, the spell can also only be cast once a day. SirSprinkles (talk) 20:22, 15 November 2017 (MST)
That was the general idea. --Redrum 13:27, 18 November 2017 (MST)

5e pidgin Languages[edit]

Are there any rules on pidgin languages? -- 13:25, 18 November 2017 (MST)

Not that I know of. SirSprinkles (talk) 02:45, 20 November 2017 (MST)

Runestaff transfer[edit]

Could you please put's ideas for the Food, Force, and Healing Runestaves on the 5e Runestaff article. I would do it but I'm not that confident of my computer skills. --Redrum 17:35, 22 November 2017 (MST)
