What are the normal "ill effects of resting while wearing armor."? Marasmusine (talk) 04:48, 24 December 2017 (MST)

Well, there are rules in 5e for resting in armor (Xanathar's Guide to Everything, pp. 77-78) - but those are explicitly optional rules, and not every game can be expected to use them. Quincy (talk) 10:05, 24 December 2017 (MST)
So this page just needs a citation for Xanathar's Guide to Everything?--GamerAim Chatmod.png (talk) 10:11, 24 December 2017 (MST)
I think that would be fine. Quincy (talk) 10:18, 24 December 2017 (MST)

once per battle instance means once per combat encounter, its not that hard to figure out

"Encounter" isn't a duration like it was in 4e. You won't find it mentioned as a mechanic anywhere in the core books. In 5e, if something lasts for the length of an "encounter", it has a duration of 1 minute. I don't know what to suggest for "Military Programming", as it says "once per battle instance", then says "regains ability after a long rest". It's one or the other.

  • "DuraSteel Plating. With no armor adhered on your frame, your Armor Class is 10 + your Dexterity modifier." - I ask you to compare this with what the character's AC would be without this trait.
  • I don't understand "Medicinal Utilities" due to poor grammar. How can a container have "a capacity of 3 uses"? Does that mean you can use the container three times, or that it contains three potions of healing? Is the potion attached to a hose, or is the container attached to a hose? Is it the syringe hidden in one finger, or the container? What does the syringe do, considering you drink a potion of healing? When the three potions are used, does this trait no longer do anything?

Merge and Delete[edit]

I really feel like this should be deleted and merged with Robot (5e Race) as that race basically everything that this one is trying to do. The only thing that I feel might be worth saving is the protocol subrace. --PJammaz (talk) 23:29, 10 March 2020 (MDT)
