Void Elf Help[edit]

Firstly I would like to say thank you very much for your help! You mentioned that the Call of the Void should be changed into a Variant Rule as it essentially forces a role play element to the race. What exactly is that and how would I go about doing that?
About the sub race situation... The sub races are supposed to be a sort of IRL Social status. They don't become anything aside from a Void Elf but their chosen class places them into that social class. In the design note I put the Example: Void Elf, Ren'Dorei Warlock. It is supposed to be basically you Race(void elf) your "sub race"(Ren'Dorei) then your class (warlock). Hope that maybe clarifies the idea?
Yes the traits were meant to have unlimited uses as they are I guess comparable to Caltrips as you stated. They are meant to be a onetime use in combat sort of ordeal nothing to essentially break the game but as I did pull the content from WOW and remix it for D&D it wouldn't be the same if it was a onetime and gone thing. As for the issue with the Spacial Rift I don't personally know what exactly to word it but this is a video of it in use in game. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuwZFhwG_xc . I went ahead and made as many changes as I could based on what you suggested.
Regarding the Traits you had mentioned that you would choose void form over void embrace but In the same sense the Drakyn feats are used together to stack and increase damage the same idea applies here.
https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Void_Elf_(5e_Race)
I would love some more feedback from you on what may need to be changed or anything once again thank you very much and please feel free to contact me if you need any feedback or help I would be more than happy too!

Chronomancer[edit]

Hey, so I recently just finished putting all the things that I myself wanted inside of the chronomancer class and was wondering if there was anything I should fix or anything like that, basically a review in a sense, and some advice on if the class is good/worthy of being a class yet, as you can see I'm still new to this community and it takes me a minute to figure things out like communicating with others xo) but I'm really hoping you can show me the ropes so that I can put more thought into the other two classes that I am currently creating as well--Bigdad881 (talk) 09:07, 16 July 2017 (MDT)--Bigdad881 (talk) 09:07, 16 July 2017 (MDT)

Wow man, honored to be of help. I'll take a look over the next few days, and I'll write my thoughts on the discussion page for the class. Again, wow. Thanks for asking. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 10:17, 16 July 2017 (MDT)

Drugs[edit]

I was thinking, and that your the only one that me myself somewhat know, would it be possible to create another category that would involve drugs on the 5e homebrew option hyperlinks? because yea there's potions but those aren't drugs, me myself was thinking "My DM has a lot of drugs in his group, but they don't have any effect towards anyone, what about people that take it in combat or something, yea they are there but they have no bonus' or negative affects unless the DM specifically says so" so, because of that, that's why I'm actually wondering about that because that would actually be pretty cool to make drugs and stuff including a herbalist area that could be using a map of faerun as reference describe the types of random greenery like herbs trees and so on for people that would like to use potion making or again for drugs --Bigdad881 (talk) 22:35, 13 August 2017 (MDT)

First of all, sorry to budge in - I was loafing around during worktime and found this page on Recent Changes.
Having drugs sounds nice to me as well, perhaps I can ask to join in development? Fantastic drugs and drug-abusers would also pump up my campaigns, as well as other campaigns anyone would prepare with this wiki. The idea is cool, but the implementation would be tricky - which is exactly why I, if possible, would like to join the process. --WeirdoWhoever (talk) 22:58, 13 August 2017 (MDT)
I honestly don't know if that is possible. I'm going to ask an admin about that and see what obstacles are in the way. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 06:44, 14 August 2017 (MDT)
Disclaimer: I made drugs and an entire pseudo-namespace before I was an admin. It's generally cool to do new things, as long as it's done so as to integrate with what has come before.
Now, I thought we had a drugs category but we don't. I think drugs were generally relegated to variant rules, and indeed, I can't think of any published rules for drugs. If you wrote or otherwise showed some 5e rules that could be referenced for how drugs worked, that'd be a good start. I'm assuming they don't work just like potions, or else you could just reskin potions as "drugs." Otherwise, you can always categorize your creations as drugs. Remember: Be bold, take initiative, try new things :) --GamerAim Chatmod.png (talk) 07:57, 14 August 2017 (MDT)
A few drug (alchemical mixtures is probably a better term) examples, and a start with this list, should get this moving in the right direction. Keep in mind that if there are no official examples then a rule system will be required. --Green Dragon (talk) 09:37, 14 August 2017 (MDT)
Seems like more than few people are actually interested in this! I may not the best in this wiki, but I'll get to work on this. (It would be so surprising for myself to thank my own insomnia for this.) --WeirdoWhoever (talk) 09:41, 14 August 2017 (MDT)
Aaaaaand it's online. Drugs and Medicines (5e Variant Rule) is the page, fellow wikians! --WeirdoWhoever (talk) 10:15, 14 August 2017 (MDT)
I left went to work and came back to see all this xo) happy to see how much it suddenly blossomed, but because (thinking that it is still in trial and run stage) I don't believe that there are any official sources that explain drugs except for WeirdoWhoever's page that he just made (thank you!!) but thinking about it, for the drugs there will most likely be a way to create them (like always) and the thoughts that popped up in my head is still that herbalism where to find/get/how much they would cost if sold as ingredient etc. also for each drug can be a cool way to create them instead of just saying "using a alchemist kit i make it" like for blood shot it could say only as a example not taking over the drug or anything "to create this, you grind up the required herbs place it inside of an metal hollow ball to stick in a furnace (something hot) and heat the ingredients up and splash water or some kind of liquid to instantly cool it to make a water substance in which is red to create blood shot"
Thanks for having m- us! Oh, and I'm copying your comments to the Drugs and Medicines (5e Variant Rule)'s talk page for reference, we can continue our discussions there. --WeirdoWhoever (talk) 09:00, 15 August 2017 (MDT)

Master Caster[edit]

Hello, BSFM (I hope you don't mind me calling you that). I was wondering if you had an idea for a proposed revision for the Master Caster feat, that might take into account both Geodude's and JSDP's wishes, while providing a fresh perspective. I am asking here because that talk page is rather cluttered, but I would also like to see this resolved sooner rather than later. If you don't have a revision in mind, don't worry. It was worth a shot asking :) --GamerAim Chatmod.png (talk) 06:07, 6 October 2017 (MDT)

Hey Gamer, I don't mind at all. Worse things to be called haha. About your idea, if the feat was taken at level 1, I read your proposal as they can take a level 9 spell. So that baits the question, can they cast it? Do they still need a spell slot available to cast a spell of that level?
None the less, JSDP seems unhappy no matter what. I think members of the community have proposed great ideas for balancing (G. Dragon & Geo) but that doesn't seem to matter. In addition, every time it seems a final draft can be done, JSDP makes a little change and you're left wondering where did that idea come from, hence why I must walk away for now. I do not mind discussiong here with you, I can check the Talk page for Master Caster for discussion her with you but at this time, I believe it best to take time away from JSDP. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 12:14, 6 October 2017 (MDT)

Response to Beholderborn[edit]

Hello! you recently asked me about my Beholderborn page, and asked about "Once Awakened", at the time that part was a work in progress, and you will now see a table of which to determine your "awakening". the awakening is the event that a Beholderborn Realizes or "awakens" to its true power, hope this helps,

--NicMINEBOMB24 10:34, 18 October 2017 (MDT)

hey BigShot[edit]

you said if i need help with anything i could come talk to you and im making a class called vampyre,you can find a link to it on my talk page and i dont know how to insert pictures so i was wondering if you can help me out with that

Did you see the reply on Mara's page? Someone gave a tip what to do, did that not work? I've not yet experimented with pictures yet so I'd be learning with you about posting them. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 08:37, 17 November 2017 (MST)
ok but who is Maras thanks anyway
You posted on his talk page yesterday, Marasmusine. Sometimes called Mara for short. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 08:43, 17 November 2017 (MST)

thanks i just relized thatAlucarddragonborn (talk) 12:03, 17 November 2017 (MST)

Vampyre Class[edit]

Big shot thank you for reviewing my Vampyre (5e Class) and after redoing somethings and tweaking it i think you should review the sub classes and give me feedback on it thanks.if you want to of course

Sure thing man. I am going over another user's stuff briefly and will look at yours agains. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 10:20, 18 December 2017 (MST)

Machinamancer and Spells[edit]

Hey BigShot,

I was told that you would be able to help me. I've recently uploaded a class and some spells that we use in our D&D canmpaigns. However, it would be nice to get opinions/balance changes. I was told to post it like this with links below.

Class: https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Machinamancer

Spells: They are all under Wizard and being with "Leonardo's..." or "Viktor's..." There is one Cleric Spell - https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Viktor%27s_Teachings_For_Adran

I hope this is correct? If there's anything I need to do or change, let me know and thank you in advance for any help!

I'd be happy to assist. I'll take a look over the next few days. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 06:17, 18 December 2017 (MST)

Hi BigShotFancyMan, sorry it's taken me so long to respond to this but things came up IRL. I've now responded to (hopefully) everything you've posted. If you have a few more minutes, any additional help would be awesome. The spell "Viktor's Teachings For Adran" needs the most attention if you could have a look at the talk page. Also, I don't know if there's a way to check whenever you respond to something?

there’s your watchlist and you can also receive email notifications when changes occur. You might get some others’ help but if not, I’ll address them over the course of the next few (3) days. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 14:47, 5 May 2018 (MDT)

Ahh, awesome! Thank you! No need to rush, just if you're available! Thank you in advance. :)

so it was gonna bug me if I took that many days to respond. It was nice some things were fixed, but a couple I think still need help. The ones I recommended for deletion I still think should be, and anytime you see Blobby383b comment, dude knows his sheet and earnestly wants to improve any article he comments on, so at least try to use his advice.
it’d also be helpful if you typed the tilde “~” four times at the end of your comments so it helps people know who is talking on talk pages. It places a signature for everyone to see.
lastly, happy to hear IRL has given you a breather. May it last for you. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 19:35, 5 May 2018 (MDT)

Is Machinamancer another name for Technomancer? --Redrum 18:36, 20 June 2018 (MDT)

I could totes see how one would perceive it that way. Up to you I suppose! BigShotFancyMan (talk) 19:45, 20 June 2018 (MDT)

Questions[edit]

I have two questions for you BigShot one is are you a admin because if not you should totally be one and is it possible to make up a type of damage such as air damage,or water damage maybe even decay damage. Alucarddragonborn (talk) 11:30, 22 January 2018 (MST)

Bigshot isn't an admin, although I feel they need a bit more experience on the site before becoming one. As for damage types, air damage would just be slashing as that is how air damages you(or force if it pushes a creature), things that deal damage with water would deal bludgeoning damage, and decay is simply necrotic damage(decaying flesh).--Blobby383b (talk) 11:48, 22 January 2018 (MST)
You are too kind, I am not an admin. I don't think I handle difficult users with the right finesse, and I do not have the time that I think the wiki deserves.
In regards to your question, it is quite possible to make up your own damage, as a DM. When it is your table anything goes. When creating content for this wiki, I'd suggest sticking to core/WoTC printed material. If you must create something new, I'd recommend there being great cause and an explanation for it. Most of us would provide argument that whatever effect you are going for can be applied via a damage source that already exists.
Kind of a long answer, but I think it best to have all the information. and again, thank you for the compliment. It will be a long time before I forget these words. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 11:55, 22 January 2018 (MST)
I didn't even get a chance Blobby383b lol thanks though. See what I saying about arguments for using already established damage? Typically, there's is no reason to deviate. Try asking what people would classify a damage as. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 11:55, 22 January 2018 (MST)
I believe cold damage can be used for water and cold air attacks. Hot air attacks could maybe use fire damage? Bludgeoning is probably a good alternative for both.--GamerAim Chatmod.png (talk) 16:42, 22 January 2018 (MST)
Thanks thats a big help running a homebrew campaign is like harder that my calculus this really helps a lot and about bigshot being an admin that came from the heart dont let it go to the head.
haha no worries about it going to my head. In light of recent things, it just meant a lot to hear that. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 15:53, 22 January 2018 (MST)
i have two more questions how do i determine average dmg for a player character and how does one rule a kingdom.Alucarddragonborn (talk) 13:27, 24 January 2018 (MST)

Average damage is the same weather is creature or PC (iirc). You halve the damage die, and round down if need be. Ruling a kingdom, that is a bit a different question. Can you provide some details; race, size, environment, what things are you unsure about? BigShotFancyMan (talk) 13:45, 24 January 2018 (MST)

Not sure if this is what you're talking about, but the free Immortals Companion (that I'll transcribe to here one of these days) for D&D 5e has rules for managing dominions. If you're talking about other editions, I'm sure I can find rules for them too.--GamerAim Chatmod.png (talk) 14:53, 24 January 2018 (MST)
For the kingdom,Lets just say i was a Real Dragon (5e Race) The kingdom is small its only a mile wide in length.during the day the environment is really bright with bunch of flowers blooming but at night the moon barley shows and the streets are pitch black.and the citizens are all human.and the main thing im unsure about it is how do i keep the kingdom running should i strike fear into all of them can do that because most will leave.how do i make an income do i just overtax everyone.how much do i pay my people for their jobs is a army even necessary when they have me a Dominion Overlord (5e Class) as their king and stuff like that.And Big shot can you take a look at my Dominion Overlord (5e Class) i got some stubs saying that it was overpowered which i get it is but its gone a long while without anyone noticing just wondering why now Alucarddragonborn (talk) 11:31, 25 January 2018 (MST)
Are you DMing or PCing? or playing this solo? As a DM, you can devise a way that keeps the citizens trapped so they can't leave and are forced into labor. Or, if that is a morbid thought, you could ignore the numbers and flavorful describe that the kingdom runs smoothly with adequate wages and the ruler lives a comfortable life. If you are a PC, then you got to ask how your character would play it out and wait for the DM to give the results. If you don't like the results, then you need to come up with ways to keep your people happy (festivals, tournaments, praise). I believe the PH/DMG have guidelines for wages (something about paying for services). Typically a town/city/metropolis has a standing guard, which I think is 1/10 the population but don't quote that. Without the DMG I can't be certain. In fact, do you own the DMG? I'd recommend reading it for advice on this.
I'll take a look. I'd say the wiki has gotten a recent robustness to edit content. I mean, a page being debated with zeal and passion went untouched over a year and then gets a deletion stub lol I wouldn't take it personal. I've got content that I am waiting for others to fine comb. Just be open minded to the changes. If you don't like them, have good flavor to justify it and still be ready for compromise. Might have to lose a little somewhere to gain what you are fighting for elsewhere. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 11:58, 25 January 2018 (MST)

Am i DM'ing or PC'ing thats a good Question on thursday and fridays i DM and my friend just so happens to love my Dominion overlord so much he decided to play as it but on saturday and sunday the roles switch where i play the Dominion overlord because its so fun.and no i dont own any D&D books but thats why theirs the internet.and thanks for the help might as well copy the U.S Constitution for the rules of my kingdom.Alucarddragonborn (talk) 10:33, 26 January 2018 (MST)

I also finished the Dominion Overlord (5e Class) waiting for you do give it a run through. Alucarddragonborn (talk) 12:05, 26 January 2018 (MST)

When you intimidate a creature does it become frighted of or charmed.can you give the creature orders and it will act to the best of its ability or will it just run away.Alucarddragonborn (talk) 11:59, 30 January 2018 (MST)

I don’t want to use either of those terms because the mean specific gameplay mechanics. When you successfully intimidate someone they might become scared. Usually it is along the line they will do what you’re “intimidating” them to do. An order can be given through intimidation (this is probably the most common way of it occurring) but it isn’t the same as some spells effects where it lasts 1 minute or an hour. The intimidation only lasts as long as the subject is scared. It’s another gray area of roleplaying, where the DM makes most the decisions along these lines (usually because PCs are intimidating NPCs) if you’re curious about opposing rolls or a DC, DC can be passive wisdom, opposing check of wisdom saving throw, or DC involving CR or HD or as the DM don’t get bogged down by numbers and make the game fun. If they’re on streak, and need put in place: fail (except in really high rolls) or of down on luck then anything higher then a result of an 8 they succeed. If they roll a 1/20 improvise something interesting. I try to tell a story when I DM and use the numbers as guidelines. Xanathars guide to everything might outline 1st party theory on this, sorry I don’t have it. Also sorry for my exhaustive answer, but I’m my defense it isn’t simply black and white. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 18:09, 30 January 2018 (MST)
thank you i really need to buy some dnd books Alucarddragonborn (talk) 10:31, 31 January 2018 (MST)
lol yes, very much so. There are pdf versions you can acquire. I am not good at that, but others are. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 11:24, 31 January 2018 (MST)

Alright i got a serious question say i wanted to review some of the classes and races on this site on YouTube would i have blur anything out is their like secret content and things like that. Alucarddragonborn (talk) 12:03, 1 February 2018 (MST)

You should post that question on the ask an admin page. I don't know the right answer for that and anything I would guess is quite possibly going to steer you the wrong way. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 13:47, 1 February 2018 (MST)
Big Shot if your not to busy i was hoping if you could review my Vampyre (5e Class) for the spelling and grammar i think i got all of it but i want to be sure. Alucarddragonborn (talk) 15:03, 6 February 2018 (MST)
Sure thing dude :) BigShotFancyMan (talk) 12:32, 7 February 2018 (MST)
I made 5 minor edits and when I got to 20th level, it needed edited as well. I did not touch it or the subclasses. I hope there is enough in the edits I made for you to be able to wrap up the rest. I think it is much better than it was though. A couple general tips, "At xth level," there's a comma there. I think DC is the only abbreviation used in SRD? meaning spell out Blood Points. Otherwise, I've seen the grammar and punctuation improved on other articles as well which is very helpful for others and encourages them to help you. If we can't read something or understand it, then we can't help. Cheers man, have a good weekend BigShotFancyMan (talk) 07:05, 9 February 2018 (MST)

XGtE Arcane Archer buff[edit]

Arcane Archer Arcane Shot (5e Class Feature)

I came across an idea to help the archer feel better. Similar to how the PH Ranger was meh and UA Ranger is good. The idea is have arcane shot uses scale with your proficiency bonus & any arcane shot that deals 2d6 damage at first, and scales to 4d6 at level 18 get an intermediate damage increase at level 10 of 3d6. Talking with my group that liked it we changed it to be:

  • Whenever you gain an Arcane Shot option, the number of uses increases by one.

The keeps the feature tied to the subclass and rather than letting people dip into and it scale without investing (and follows better with subclass features correlating with class level not character level. We also added that shots that deal 2d6 damage at level 18 get a 1d6 at level 10. Hopefully this helps other players/groups.

shot, shot, shot, shot, shot, shot, shot, shot, shot, shot, shot, shot, shot, shot, shot, shot, shot, EVERYBODY!
BigShotFancyMan (talk) 07:34, 23 January 2018 (MST)

Oh! If it's just one feature you're changing, you could make a small (5e Class Feature Variant). That would be a good way to share it, and the Class Feature preload is suited for just such a task :) --GamerAim Chatmod.png (talk) 07:55, 23 January 2018 (MST)
I've got it posted. Most likely some phrasing issues (tricky thing to communicate the damage idea). Thanks a lot for the direction of where to post this. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 08:10, 23 January 2018 (MST)
If you really want a buff add different tipped arcane arrows,like arrows that deal a specific type of damage like say you have 5 arrows left you can have each one deal a different type of damage Cold,Fire,Lighting,Force,and acid just my opinion.Alucarddragonborn (talk) 12:29, 24 January 2018 (MST)
Arcane shots do have varying effects on them already. And another user has submitted arcane shot options already. I don't see an issue suggesting this on that talk page. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 12:40, 24 January 2018 (MST)

Special Chat?[edit]

I only just noticed in one of your edits on the Behemoth Talk page that you linked a special chat, I can be on there whenever you want to discuss the class just let me know!--HalfHeartedAvenger (talk) 10:45, 22 March 2018 (MDT)

Indeed I did link it that day to try and pan out details a little quicker while I was/am at work. I don't camp there though because of work so don't stress it. I hope you enjoy recent changes on the class. There's also a Discord Server people use, more popular than the Tavern.BigShotFancyMan (talk) 11:00, 22 March 2018 (MDT)
Ah okay yeah I'm pretty new to the community as it were. I'm at work too most days so I find it hard to go in and edit the chat room. I figured it would be nice to talk to you about it in a more succinct way, especially since all of these changes have led to me having more questions and opinions(I do like the overall direction, but feel like some changes are taking away too much from the original purpose(like the complete removal of the increased crit change, for instance). Mind you that I'm fine with whatever changes are made as long as there is a general consensus that they fit the class well enough and are balanced.--HalfHeartedAvenger (talk) 11:13, 22 March 2018 (MDT)
Check out Blobby's review on the Class Review topic, he makes points that the critical hitting doesn't add much damage especially for a class making one attack. If the class made more attacks, crits would be great, but there a better features to fit into this classes design of one large hit. But please, ask away on the Behemoth (5e Class) talk page, it's come a long way and in a good way too. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 11:57, 22 March 2018 (MDT)

Bigshot[edit]

Hello bigshot its been a while but i was making the Inferno (5e Class) and i need an opinion on balance and flavor if your not too busy that is.Alucarddragonborn (talk) 11:46, 22 March 2018 (MDT)

Of course I will, might not be for a week though? I usually don't wiki too much on weekends and next week isn't a normal week for me. If anything, I'll give a crash on it with an intent to get in depth later (like I usually do) BigShotFancyMan (talk) 11:57, 22 March 2018 (MDT)

Thats cool ill leave it alone for a while and just tell me when you do get a look at it,thanks Alucarddragonborn (talk) 12:00, 22 March 2018 (MDT)

Shinobi (5e Class)[edit]

i need your help with some wording on my Shinobi (5e Class) its the Obliteration Technique at 17th level i want to be able to use my action to save my attack that i was going to use and on my next turn attack twice or instead keep on saving.for example. i use my action and i now one attack saved and on my next turn us emy action to gain another attack.to a maximum of five and then unleash a flurry of attacks onto my enemy.it currently reads.

  • At 17th level you can use your action to begin charging while charging your movement speed is zero and you must act as if you are concentrating on a spell.when it is your turn you can attack an enemy within 10 feet of you twice or instead use your action to continue charging,if you do you can make another attack after the 2nd (Max 5),when you use this feature you cant do it again until you complete a long rest.

this is as proper as i can make it but to me it doesn't sound right if you have any suggestions feel free to change it.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Alucarddragonborn (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts.

Hey man! I've responded on the appropriate talk page so I hope to hear from you there. Thanks for reaching out :) BigShotFancyMan (talk) 11:58, 30 April 2018 (MDT)

Some more help[edit]

I wanted to know if this featured for the Dominion Overlord (5e Class) was too overpowerd before you say yes i want you to know the idea behind,I want it able to be able to resist magical attacks. it currently reads.

Overlord Supreme

You hate when some one uses magic against you so your hate has made you almost invulnerable to magic.At 18th level you are resistant to magical effects done by spell caster's (Wizards,sorcerer's warlocks and the like) and have advantage on saving throws against them but this goes both ways and healing spells have no effect on you.EX.if you are hit with fireball you have advantage on the saving throw and only take half the damage and if some one was to use a healing word you gain no hit points.--Alucarddragonborn (talk) 11:39, 18 May 2018 (MDT)

to clarify:
1. Advantage on saving throws vs spells
2. Resistance to spell damage
3. Immune to healing spells

I’ve used spells instead of spellcasters because it is a vague term any list might not include future classes released. Let me know if I’ve understood this correctly though. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 16:21, 18 May 2018 (MDT)

that is exactly want i want just wondering if that was overpowered.--Alucarddragonborn (talk) 14:27, 22 May 2018 (MDT)

apologies for the delay, I’ve been away. I don’t think it’s overpowered in itself, possibly when combined with other features though. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 16:58, 7 June 2018 (MDT)

Administration[edit]

Welcome to Adminship. You are now part of "The Face" of D&D Wiki. You have more burden on yourself now that you are an admin because users will be looking at you for editing help, knowledge about pages, etc. Make sure to familiarize yourself with Meta Pages to help address this burden. I recommend you take a look at Special:ListGroupRights if you have not already. Some of the new feature's uses follow: You can now delete pages, protect pages, rollback edits, block users and IP's, edit every page, patrol edits, and do a couple more minor things.

  • Deleting pages is normally done through Category:Candidates for Deletion. Anything with a good reason to be deleted on that page should be deleted. Other times pages should be deleted is in the case of vandalism, spam, or even when someone makes a page and after a few edits they either blank the page or replace it with something like "Please delete this". If this page consisted of close to just the preload it is fine to just delete it.
  • Protecting pages has quite a few different times when it should be used. Pages should be protected according to the author's wishes (with Template:Locked Page added to the top of the page in question), in case of conflict (with Template:Temp Locked Page added to the top of the page in question), in case of OGC published materials (with Template:OGL Top added to the top of the page in question and Template:OGL Bottom added to the bottom), or finally if the page is a vital part of D&D Wiki's organization. Also, if it deals with D&D Wiki's organization the page needs to be protected. For Example 3.5e Homebrew is protected from all non-sysop edits. No template needs to be added to pages if they are part of D&D Wiki's organization (even though some do exist like Template:Admin Locked Page)
  • Blocking a user or IP should be used with respect to policy. To block someone just click "block" (found on Recent Changes, the diff in question, the userpage, etc) and fill out the corresponding form. For a typical vandalism attack I normally block the user for two weeks. Certain things demand a longer block and others a shorter. No standards have been set for block lengths so use your best judgment.
  • Editing every page on D&D Wiki mostly means you can now edit the 5e SRD, 3.5e SRD and the MSRD. Feel free to edit them if inaccuracies are found. If interested further please look at their To-Do lists; I am sure your help will be appreciated.

Now that you are an admin I would say more burden is placed on you, but I really hope you enjoy being an admin and I hope you decide to stay around on D&D Wiki for a while more to come. Welcome to Adminship. Again, you're now part of "The Face" of D&D Wiki. --Green Dragon (talk) 09:00, 12 June 2018 (MDT)

Commendation[edit]

Hey, I appreciate the help you have given on my pages in the last couple of days. I panicked a bit when I had a dozen or so emails saying my pages had been changed, but I'm not great at breadcrumbs and such (as you have noticed). Thanks for helping with that. Just saying, you make the wiki a better place. If you have some pointers for Nökken, a couple of tags were added and then re-added after some editing, so I would appreciate your thoughts. Zibby (talk) 05:19, 22 June 2018 (MDT)

Hey Zibby! That's great to hear, thank you a lot. I will take a look at the Nokken and see how I can help out. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 07:07, 22 June 2018 (MDT)

Hey Bigshot[edit]

I have a question if I wanted to rename something how would I do that thx always. Alucarddragonborn (talk) 21:54, 10 July 2018 (MDT)

At the top where the tabs are, there is one named "move". Click on that and you'll be brought to a page to choose a new name and give a reason. As long as you aren't moving something from a user page to a "regular" page should be rather simple. I'm off to bed so I hope you have success. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 22:01, 10 July 2018 (MDT)
I forgot there's an option to leave a redirect. Leave checked just to be safe. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 22:03, 10 July 2018 (MDT)
Only admins have the option not to leave a redirect; regular users always leave a redirect. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 22:08, 10 July 2018 (MDT)
doh! Thanks for clearing that up Geo. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 22:10, 10 July 2018 (MDT)

Thx for that but I have one more problem it's my Dominion Overlord or more specific the Juggernaut Drive yes it's broken and I want to change that but I'm out of ideas so do you have any Overlord_ish lv 20 features to make it good but not broken.alucarddragonborn

I replied on the Dominion Overlord talk page. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 14:09, 18 July 2018 (MDT)

need help[edit]

know you have been helping with the Duel Terminal :Order of the Warlords (5e Campaign Setting) could you help keep an eye out on it dont know how to report someone don't appreciate being called stupid or threatened for making custom rule sets and monsters the page is very much a work in progress if could help moderate we would be much obliged DuelingDuelistDrew, Dmoice 08:20 9/6/18 (EST)

I’ve been parsing through the edits since they started. Could you share where you called stupid? And don’t take CL’s comments as a threat, but as an informal warning. One that they need to consider for themselves if that’s how things will go. Other than that, take a break from the wiki for a couple hours if you can. To prevent any hasty edits. (talk) 06:28, 6 September 2018 (MDT)
can i send a edit i deleted im not sure how i would do that DuelingDuelistDrew, Dmoice 09:53 9/6/18 (EST)
I am not sure I follow. Every edit is logged. You can email the page you are talking about if you don't want to publicly send the information. Otherwise, post a link to the page in our discussion here and we can continue a conversation on that pages talk page and figure out what edit you are referring to.

lol while all edits are valued equally on paper, I think practically some edits have greater implications/uses and its the greater things get more recognition and its those edits that I don't hit the notch on (i.e. coding and transcribing).

Working on the 5e Necromancer[edit]

Howdy howdy! I know you're very busy but I wanted to check in on your thoughts regarding the Necromancer_(5e_Class) suggestions I made in the discussion regarding the level 5 ability alongside the new capstone. I'm currently playing the Necromancer in a 5e game with permission from my DM and am planning to use it as a prolonged play-test for the class. With this in mind, any feedback and thoughts on my feedback and thoughts would be great! Thanks again for your help! TexasTies (talk) 20:12, 23 September 2018 (MDT)

Cardslinger[edit]

Hi Bigshot, I'm a big fan of the Cardslinger 5e class and it seems Rosewater's account is inactive if you would like to balance it. So far I've been playing it as-is without the extra attacks but there are still confusing things like whether you have to throw at a character and why you would want advantage if it's AoE damage and whether to use dex or con for saves. Please take a look. You might be able to make some permanent changes this time around. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 134.197.0.21 (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts.

Hey thanks for reaching out. I am hesitant to do that because Rosewater was inactive when I started the overhaul for that page and they came back and it wasn't pretty. I'd be able to collaborate on a variant with you since I too am fond of this class design. Let me know! BigShotFancyMan (talk) 20:25, 2 October 2018 (MDT)
Hi, sorry, I'm new to the wiki and don't really know how to format yet. I'd love to collaborate on something like this as I now have some experience playing the class from levels 6-8 in the underdark. Please let me know and I would jump at the opportunity to make a more balanced version of the Cardslinger. Daedalus (talk) 03:26, 3 October 2018 (PST)
You seem to be able to use a talk page just fine, so that's more than enough to help. I'll try to start this soon so we can hash out a functional cardslinger class! BigShotFancyMan (talk) 11:52, 3 October 2018 (MDT)

Hello Big Shot[edit]

I know it's been awhile but I've been working on the Shinobi and I wanted to know if you look at it

Hey dude! I sure can when I have time. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 10:06, 11 October 2018 (MDT)

Thanks for the feedback on the Shinobi class it means alot I'll make some edits to make it easier to understand. Alucarddragonborn (talk) 16:05, 13 October 2018 (MDT)

Adminship[edit]

So I'm looking in the wiki and see that gamer aim is request to be admin I thought he already was also can I voice my opinion on the matter I don't really know what he did so some clarity could be useful thanks. Alucarddragonborn (talk) 18:53, 13 October 2018 (MDT)

well, RfA is also a way to remove Adminship from an admin. There are users unhappy with GA’s behavior. I’d prefer to leave it at that and allow you to read some of the RfA comments. My vote there shared my opinion, and you’ll find many more there. I don’t wish to invite its stress to my page honestly. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 18:59, 13 October 2018 (MDT)
I hope BSFM doesn't mind me pitching in? Since you mentioned wanting clarity: if the RfA page is too verbose or you have questions, feel free to message me on my talk page or on Discord :) --GamerAim Chatmod.png (talk) 20:09, 13 October 2018 (MDT)

Featured Article Nominations[edit]

Yo BSFM, I have no idea who best to bother about this - How the hell does Featured Article nomination work? I've read all the associated pages, the meta-info about it, the past nominations and I feel no more elucidated. How do I nominate a page for FA? Do I just have to add a nomination template and hope for the best? --SgtLion (talk) 09:13, 15 October 2018 (MDT)

Not to barge in, but I saw the recent edit: I believe it begins with a nomination on the talk page of the article with the template, addressing any issues that might exist before a consensus is ultimately reached when the article is either approved or denied. At least, that's what happened at my own pages: Pantheon of Tirr and Rockworm. -Jwguy (talk) 09:18, 15 October 2018 (MDT)
Indeed y'all be correct. If you find an article you believe to be a good candidate, throw the template on there. Afterwards, any issues or concerns will be brought up. Based on consensus, a bureaucrat will give the thumbs up, or down. I think it to be the best way to drive collaboration on an article and truly find its worth.

Aquamancer class help?[edit]

Hello there! I hope I can trouble you for a little bit of help with the Aquamancer_(5e_Class) that I'm working on -- no rush, totally when it's convenient for you. I already got some input from ConcealedLight, who was very helpful in getting the subclasses more balanced and polished-feeling. Now I'm mostly looking for input on the Spellsprings and Cohort, the two central class features along with fullcasting.

I just did a rework of the Cohort based on the second entry on this page, which isn't a 5e resource, so I'm not sure how balanced my implementation of it is for 5e.

As for Spellsprings, CL suggested I structure them more like sorcery points. I agree that sorcery points involve less bookkeeping and are better for that reason, but I also think the Spellspring implementation I have now is pretty flavorful, and I think it doesn't make sense for the Spellspring feature to scale up the likes of sleep or cure wounds at the same rate as first-level divination spells without higher casting (detect magic, et al.). I'm hoping with an extra pair of eyes we can find a best-of-both-worlds, balanced implementation.

Anyway, like I said, just if and when you're able to help with this, I will greatly appreciate it. Thanks! Ctenochaetus (talk) 21:38, 30 October 2018 (MDT)

Sure can! Sorry to be short too. Thanks for reaching out :) ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 10:07, 31 October 2018 (MDT)

Adding Columns?[edit]

I’m currently trying to create another column for a class I’m working on called the https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Ninja_(5e_Class) and no matter what I try I can’t seem to figure out how to add another column to the table. I even went to the Table section on the Help Portal but I still was confused. I’m wanting to add a column in between the Proficiency Bonus and the Features columns. I’m wanting to add Ki Points to the table similarly to the Monk class. https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/User:Dishonor0nYoCow (talk)

Replace the placeholder text next to the parameter "extrasonleft" with the number "1". Now you have a column between the Proficiency Bonus and the Features columns. Now name the parameter for extra_1 "Ki Points" and replace the entries for each row of the table with the number of ki points for each level, okay? If you want to keep the column for Concealed Tricks, make it extra_2, etc. That oughta do it. Quincy (talk) 16:52, 1 November 2018 (MDT)

I have a problem[edit]

Hey Big Shot I have a problem I made a vampire 5e class a long time ago and it got stubs because of course it did and then I did a redo on the same page and it was cool then I made a vampire variant called at the Vampire Knight and it was cool then I took a couple weeks off the wiki and when I got back on like an active again the vampire 5e class was changed back to the old version and the vampire variant AKA The Vampire Knight was now the redone version in the way of putting it and the Vampire Knight the one I've worked on recently is now gone and I was wondering if you could help me out with that thank you alucarddragonborn

Gonna need to try and break this down a little better. I found three pages for Vampyre's you've worked on (at least to what I see).
  1. Vampyre, Variant (5e Class)
  2. Vampyre (5e Class)
  3. Vampyre Knight (5e Class)
To me it looks like all the pages are there. Let me know if this doesn't help. ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 07:22, 13 November 2018 (MST)

You found it I couldn't but yea its all correct but vampire variant should be the vampyer 5e class don't know how that happened but thanks for your help alucarddragonborn

No problem dude! Good luck :) ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 10:14, 14 November 2018 (MST)

Hey Big Shot I need some help[edit]

Hey man! Thanks for the help and advice on multiple of my pages! I finally got some more free time to get back to creating and fixing pages. Regarding the Aura Magister (5e Class) that I have been working on I have been making edits and believe it is in need of one last edit before I would remove the incomplete tag. However, I am stuck... I was reading through your advice and got stuck on your 5th suggestion.

"Head Aura Magister uses a different DC that is worse than what a normal one would be (8+prof bon+relevant ability mod). Also, a free 4d6 healing is quite strong. While it is capstone, I still don't think unlimited healing, or unlimited with such a high value, should be encouraged."

I can see how this would definitely be seen as unbalanced. Fixing the DC isn't hard but I am not sure how to change this feature to not be unbalanced. I envisioned hitting level 20 and having that almost cinematic scene where you have finally mastered the auras. When you walk the auras flow out of you healing all things or killing all things. Like a true force of life and death a walking natural disaster or a walking miracle of life. Its because of this I cannot think of a way of wording or changing it and still keep the vision. I hit a creative block and would love some more input or help from you on this! Once again thank you so much you're and amazing person and your help is always appreciated. (if you cant reach me on here or for some reason I don't see your response I am always checking the wiki discord) Slinger124 (talk) 09:43, 13 November 2018 (MST)

You are way too kind lol but thank you.
I was just checking if the variant DC is intentional, if I am not mistaken. And maybe limit the healing to only half their maximum. This I think could be a start to balance the healing. As an action, heal 4d6 hit points up to half their maximum? I 'unno, an off hand thought. ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 10:17, 14 November 2018 (MST)

Hey! I believe I have come up with a new idea that keeps true to the vision but makes it a little more balanced. Would love to have your feedback on it or if you think it needs some more changes feel free to re-word or change it :D Slinger124 (talk) 09:31, 15 November 2018 (MST)

Really appreciate the class help, but...[edit]

The original problem I was attempting to fix still remains unsolved. I have yet to discover how to put a short description on the class page. I’ve tried searching the help portal and editing guideline/intro but couldn’t seem to figure it out. Though my problem is still unsolved, please don’t take me asking directly as ungratefulness, the things you changed and edited on the page were really helpful and changes I hadn’t gotten to due to time constraints and work.(My page was really lacking flavor before you assisted) Also, nice catch on Flow, after talking with my group, they had suggested something similar. --Cadezka (talk) 08:15, 3 December 2018 (MST)

Aw shucks. Alright, well I am glad I helped but I've commented on the page's talk page for us to figure out a solution there. ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 09:21, 3 December 2018 (MST)
should I delete this now?--Cadezka (talk) 08:17, 4 December 2018 (MST)
It is "impolite" to delete things from others' talk pages. If you've made a comment you wish to revoke/retract, is proper to strikethrough the words.
The wiki likes to maintain conversations in the event they could help others. Sorry for the long answer but just saying no wouldn't have helped that much. ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 08:53, 4 December 2018 (MST)
