Talk:Bestiary (JJBA Setting)
From D&D Wiki
In my reading of the Fifth Edition, creatures and players operate on completely different levels. No matter how powerful a wizard becomes, they alone will never be equivalent to a lich; even the greatest champion among fighters would lose in single combat against a planetar. Players are cogs in a larger world of power. This kind of thought just doesn't fly in shonen settings, however. The foes a creature faces are no different from themselves, warriors growing in power by their own means whom they are meant to overcome personally. To reflect this, CR and level are relatively equal for the sake of this setting.
All creatures should be built from the ground up as player characters using the classes listed in the Creating a Character section, allowing for legendary resistances and higher ability scores for end-of-series tier characters (i.e. any JoJo or main villain).
The (JJBA Supplement) identifier helps a bit, but should the categories for pages that are not balanced for regular games not also be removed? So a supplement creature with lower than normal HP compared to CR would only have the supplement category, not the ones for 5e creatures.--Yanied (talk) 14:47, 21 February 2021 (MST)
- The setting is still a 5e supplement built around the mechanics of 5e, and the supplement category should keep them from showing up where they shouldn't, so I don't really see the problem? If having 1 non-standard element is that big of a deal, should we remove categories from mythic monsters, or creatures using anachronistic equipment, or creatures that can spend non-spellcasting resources through actions? As far as I'm aware, the supplement category explicitly indicates that a page isn't meant for typical play, thus why pages with it are or should be excluded from all main pages. --Ref3rence (talk) 16:55, 21 February 2021 (MST)
