Talk:Bearon (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
- If the bite attack is a bonus attack, then have it use a bonus action.
- Scrap "tight fit": large creatures having to wear large-sized apparel is assumed.
- Scrap "Carrying/Lifting: capacity is doubled and can be surrounded by up to 5 enemies."; doubled carry capacity for large creatures is already described in the rules, and how many creatures you can be surrounded by is going to depend on what kind of tactical grid you're using.
- At some point I think we should have a general discussion about large PC races and weapon size. Dual-wielding two-handed weapons is going to have a huge damage output, especially for rangers and similar. The DMG also says that large-sized weapons have double the die (e.g. a large longsword would be 2d8, a large maul is 4d6!). Marasmusine (talk) 05:27, 30 January 2015 (MST)
- Ooh, I forgot that there's Oversized (5e Variant Rule), so the bearon can use weapons with the Oversized property without penalty. Marasmusine (talk) 05:25, 1 February 2015 (MST)
On subraces, maybe you could use different types of bears? Like polar bear gains bonus resist to cold. Grizzly gains bonus hiding bonus in the forest, etc. May not be the most creative of ideas but if creates an excuse to make a Panda Bearon, I'm game. --Balthazar (talk) 19:13, 8 April 2015 (MDT)
