Hey NicMINEBOMB24, what does "once awakened" mean or what is it for? BigShotFancyMan (talk) 09:57, 18 October 2017 (MDT)

I saw your answer on the talk page and I'll elaborate. What reason is there to include "once awakened". When creating a character, or beholderborn, you won't play the race without being awakened. It's a moot point to include the text? Kind of follow my drift? Having it there, leads to confusion, hence my question. Same as the history. It says beholderborns may never what they are. I find this hard to believe and would recommend omitted this part of the history or tweaking it or tweaking a racial trait. Maybe beholderborns only transform while below half hit points, therefore some won't know. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 12:11, 18 October 2017 (MDT)
I see what you mean now, and i agree. I suppose when writing it my mindset was in a different perspective. Thank you for pointing this out as it may prevent further confusion. I will revise the wording for it this afternoon. if you have any more concerns, please don't be shy.

I've done a rework this race from top to bottom it should be good now. --ConcealedLight (talk) 12:11, 25 February 2018 (MST)

A lot of work, looks much better. Well done. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 13:15, 25 February 2018 (MST)
Thanks. --ConcealedLight (talk) 14:29, 25 February 2018 (MST)
Why do they get a scaling Eldritch Blast? I get that it's a interesting creature, but it's Half-Beholder, and as a PC, I think it should be nerfed.

The eldritch blast is naturally a cantrip, so that's fine. If you read the original spell, it scales naturally as well. I am a bit confused that this race doesn't cap the use of its eye rays. Sure, it's random, but I feel it should be restricted to pb maybe, especially given the chances of petrification and fear at a low level.--Yanied (talk) 19:07, 10 February 2024 (MST)

I have a question, what is the point of the disadvantage on charisma checks? It doesn't seem to have a justification in-fiction (beholders have good charisma) or mechanically (it's not tied in with anything). Marasmusine (talk) 02:37, 11 February 2024 (MST)
