Translated 3.5e SRD Pages[edit]

Hey there Green Dragon, I noticed on one of my maintenance dpl's something very peculiar, two pages of the 3.5e SRD translated into (Italian?) which can be found here and here. I was wondering whether you know what should be done with these pages as they could potentially be helpful, but as it currently stands they are doing nothing.--Blobby383b (talk) 20:13, 10 October 2019 (MDT)

Seeing as you can't use them without the rest of the SRD, I'd delete them. --Green Dragon (talk) 23:11, 14 October 2019 (MDT)

Hi GD; could you please also give Yanied admin permissions on the Discord server? You are the only one with permission to do this. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 10:19, 16 October 2019 (MDT)

Done. --Green Dragon (talk) 08:45, 17 October 2019 (MDT)

Protection[edit]

Espada (5e Class), as with a lot of derivative classes, has been receiving a lot of unregistered users making quite a number of unbalancing edits. Could you set the page protection to registered users only? -Ref3rence (talk) 08:52, 22 October 2019 (MDT)

I changed the protection level because of high traffic. I am not too sure all the edits were bad, but in making users log on, we can better communicate when an issue comes up.   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   09:28, 22 October 2019 (MDT)

Thank you. -Ref3rence (talk) 10:06, 22 October 2019 (MDT)

Talk:Grafter (3.5e Prestige Class)[edit]

The time frame for FAN expires on this in 24 hours, being bias on the vote I am requesting input from a FA Helper! Thanks   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   08:02, 24 October 2019 (MDT)

Since the primary contributor seems to have abandoned the FAN in a sense (e.g. didn't finish answering the questions) I would fail the nomination, but also post a comment about the current lack of clarity and that the option to re-nominate the page should be done when the points have been addressed. --Green Dragon (talk) 09:34, 24 October 2019 (MDT)
Sounds fair. Thanks :-)   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   10:02, 24 October 2019 (MDT)

Sentinel Construct Edit/Revert[edit]

Howdy,

Saw your comment regarding grammatical and verbiage issue for my race/class "Sentinel Construct". I also see that it was removed shortly thereafter. Was there something I needed to address, or had the issues already been taken care of? I was fairly certain I had already gone through and changes the things you noted a week or two ago. Cheers.

--TheReverend (talk) 07:19, 26 October 2019 (MDT)

Sorry, I was looking at an outdated version of the page and I didn't reload the page for the changes. --Green Dragon (talk) 09:31, 26 October 2019 (MDT)

Sword Mage (5e Class)[edit]

Hello I am the original creator of the sword mage and I periodically check it but when I noticed it had gotten far from what I originally had in mind I changed it back and uploaded Sword Mage Variant so it would still have a place and still have its true form and as I went back to it so I could check up on it i noticed you had made it the spell casting version of it, I would like to have it reverted back to its none spell casting form, I noticed the note asking "where is the mage" and its in its concept of imbuing swords with magic. So its not a conventional Mage with spells but more so in the concept of utilizing magic

~LQRD

Okay. I hope that you are happy with your solution. It works for me. --Green Dragon (talk) 22:59, 14 November 2019 (MST)

Posted a Quest But Not Sure What Comes Next[edit]

Hi - I'm sorry I'm really struggling to figure out how to best communicate with the admin but I eventually stumbled upon this link where I think I can pose my question and have it answered...

I've posted the "Jotenheim Campaign" in the 5e Quest area, but can't figure out what I need to do next. I would like to have it reviewed, if that is the next step, and/or moved into the completed/ready for prime time section at Level 20...???

If I have not logged in, I can only find my quest by doing a search for "Jotenheim" and it comes up as the only choice for the search field. Then the page comes up and I can see it all. But if I log in, I can see it in the group of other quests under the heading "Quests without an improving, reviewing, or removing template present". I'm confused about what the status is and if anything automatic will happen to push it along, or if I need to do anything else. I've poked around some of the various help and info pages but haven't stumbled upon the magic decoder ring that would help me understand.

Thanks in advance for your response; I look forward to hearing from you.

Dain

Your quest is showing up for me in the standard quest list. I assume that you ended up answering your own question, or do you still have something you want me to answer? --Green Dragon (talk) 22:34, 18 November 2019 (MST)
Well, I didn't figure anything out, but it is working now. Previously I had to log in to see my quest, but it's showing up now without having to log in. I do still have the question about how to get the quest moved into the Level 20 section. You indicated "Categories will put your quest in the Level 20 section." but I don't understand what that means... --184.18.77.79 07:41, 19 November 2019 (MST)
Your local cache was probably just doing something funky. This kind of issue usually sorts itself after a couple days at most. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 08:16, 19 November 2019 (MST)

Samurai 5e[edit]

Hello there. I've been doing a few edits on the Samurai 5e class and was wondering how much I could change before it's considered vandalism? I added a few suggestions in the discussion page but haven't got any replies. Basically I just think it has too many archetypes and of the five available there are two that easily stick out as unnecessary; Yojimbo and Shoyu. Yojimbo is like a non-magic magic caster which doesn't make sense while only using a sword. Shoyu could be it's own class as there are multiple options each with their own abilities. I thought about getting rid of them and focusing on Shogun, Iaijutsu Master and Kyudo but I wouldn't want to do anything considered vandalism as that would take away a huge chunk of what's been written for the class. I've been enjoying playing this class but as I look into the later abilities and what not I see some balancing problems. Another thought for the archetype change is that a player can only do one per character, so why have more than 3? I get wanting to have options but the other three archetypes are very different in how they'd be played.

Thanks for reading this, hope to hear from you soon. -Ancalagon 11/19/2019

I answered on the talk page. Thanks for bringing this to my attention! --Green Dragon (talk) 08:20, 19 November 2019 (MST)

Obscene changes to a homebrew class(Daemon Eater, 2nd Variant)[edit]

Hello. I was just talking with my DM about this class, as one of my characters uses it, and I brought up the page. I hadn't looked in a while, so I was surprised to see some edits. After looking it over further, it has had some utterly obscene changes done to it including increasing extra attacks to a maximum of 6, while only applying to unarmed attacks, along with increasing the unarmed damage of the "Corrupted Limb" feature to a maximum of 6d10. Since I'm relatively new to this community(I only just made an account for this purpose), I don't feel comfortable attempting to apply any changes, so can you take a look?

https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Daemon_Eater,_2nd_Variant_(5e_Class) https://www.dandwiki.com/w/index.php?title=Daemon_Eater,_2nd_Variant_(5e_Class)&diff=1241006&oldid=1201164

Thanks for the heads up! You are absolutely right, those edits are not in line with the class's design. I have reverted the edits and informed the user too. --Green Dragon (talk) 22:37, 19 November 2019 (MST)

QAN for Siege Beetle[edit]

As a listed helper, and I think CL is still quite busy, would you mind inputting on this QAN? As the only support, I don't want to appear bias :-)   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   08:39, 5 December 2019 (MST)

A similar issue here, Talk:Adventurer (5e Background).   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   08:45, 5 December 2019 (MST)
Done. Any more nominees? --Green Dragon (talk) 07:15, 6 December 2019 (MST)
Thanks so much and indeed another one expired yesterday, Talk:Genie (5e Race). Thanks in advance and I think you're good for a bit! :-)   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   10:40, 9 December 2019 (MST)

Back Door?[edit]

So, wait, you have back door access into this site? First off, does that mean what I think it means? And 2, why and how do you have this access? Did you hack Dand Wiki? Now, don't mistake this for an accusation or anything of the like, I just find it interesting and wish to learn everything I possibly can... even if I'm not smart enough to understand and/or use most of it. Flamestarter (talk) 02:09, 6 December 2019 (MST)Flamestarter

Actually no, I don't have backend access to the server. I could get it if I wanted to, but since I don't know how to use it it would be pointless. People need to maintain the site, it doesn't run itself, so access is required like any other website. --Green Dragon (talk) 06:12, 6 December 2019 (MST)
Ah. It's just that the admin request thing gave me that idea, so I had to ask. Sorry to bother you! Have a good day! Flamestarter (talk) 07:35, 6 December 2019 (MST)Flamestarter
As far as I'm aware, currently Blue Dragon is the only person with backend access to the site. Other users have also had access at various times in the past, but for various reasons they don't anymore. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 16:56, 6 December 2019 (MST)
Oh come on! Why you gotta do my boy like that and you know what I mean -_-
Also really enjoyed GDs response "I could get it if I wanted to, but since I don't know how to use it it would be pointless. >.<   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   09:29, 9 December 2019 (MST)
Well, there's nothing wrong in getting confused, is there? And even if Blue Dragon does have back-door access, what's the matter with it? I see no reason why someone shouldn't have access there if they can get to it. There's no kind of sensitive information that can be accessed through that, right? (Sorry, didn't know what BSFM meant by "my boy".)
I was directing it at Geodude in regards to other users. There is jesting going on, no real issues being taken from the comment.   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   12:54, 9 December 2019 (MST)
All the information we store is encrypted, so it's impossible for us to get any of your personal information (like passwords, other sensitive information). Also, it's not "backdoor" access, since that normally refers to a security vulnerability. It's access to the server, website configuration, etc. See also D&D Wiki:Privacy policy and D&D Wiki:General disclaimer about what information is gathered from your traffic. --Green Dragon (talk) 22:21, 9 December 2019 (MST)

Question[edit]

Should Radiation Poisoning be treated as a poison or a disease? 209.97.84.186 17:30, 11 December 2019 (MST)

I'd say a disease since you can't efficiently give someone radiation poisoning. Flamestarter (talk) 06:55, 12 December 2019 (MST)Flamestarter
but you can give radiation poison, and I think the question is answered in the name of what you are talking about: is radiation poisoning poison or a disease?..... to be clear, I'd treat radiation poison as a poison.   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   12:02, 12 December 2019 (MST)
Ok, I see your point there, but it's not like you can give someone radiation poisoning without getting it yourself. So, it wouldn't be a very good poison as it would need a DC to keep the user from getting poisoned. I still hold to the disease angle. Flamestarter (talk) 17:45, 12 December 2019 (MST)Flamestarter
Ok, my mother said that the Russians was able to give people radiation poisoning by injecting people with radioactive particles. So, I would like to change my stance. It can be used as a disease and a poisoning, depending on your use of it. Flamestarter (talk) 17:48, 12 December 2019 (MST)Flamestarter
Radiation poisoning isn't a disease and can be given without contracting. Chemotherapy? Xrays (excessive)? Nuclear Power Plant accidents? It has no qualities of a disease. Radiation poisoning could pass down some gene mutation but a new living creature won't carry the poisoning. Are you objecting to what I say because of the source?   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   22:26, 12 December 2019 (MST)
The main reason I asked if Radiation should be treated as a poison or a disease is to figure out how to treat it medically(Aka magic or mundane).
1.) Based upon your original question, I would have to say you can treat it without magic and 2.) Do keep in mind that radioactive substances (210 Polonium to be exact) have been used as a way of poisoning someone, just look up the Poisoning of Alexander Livinenko on wikipedia. Leíf (talk) 13:16, 18 January 2020 (MST)


Mirror of Duplication[edit]

What do you mean by saving throws? That request was too vague for me to do anything. I felt like it was well balanced with the whole "has to be in contact and in front of" thing. I mean, how many people would set this mirror off exactly like that? Maybe 1 in a party? 2? I helped with the grammar confusion, and I set a duration for the copy.

Edit on Oracle Discussion Page[edit]

Hey dude! I asked a question way back in December 2019 about a feature of the Orator of the Occult Astral Personification in the discussion page. I checked back for a response, and noticed it'd been removed. Now, I'm not familiar with the website, hence the lack of an account, but am a pretty big D&D fan. Is there a reason it was removed? Did I do something wrong format wise, or was there something wrong with the question? The class seems really cool, I think every Astral Personification is unique and interesting, Divine Curse is a cool mechanic that totally makes this class, and although you can make a wizard in the School of Divination and flavour them an oracle, having a dedicated class, in my opinion, is much cooler. I'd really appreciate that bit of clarification, and hope my post here shows my passion for this class, and my belief in its potential. Thanks for your time! -An anonymous D&D fan

Sorry about that. Your discussion has been added back. --Green Dragon (talk) 22:14, 5 January 2020 (MST)

Clerics[edit]

Is there a 3.5e (or 5e) Iron Chef cleric domain? Redrum 18:06, 8 January 2020 (MST)

No but there is one for Wizards, the Arcane Chef (5e Subclass). --Green Dragon (talk) 22:49, 8 January 2020 (MST)

3.5e feat(magical)[edit]

Is it possible to combine the shocking grasp spell and the improved unarmed strike feat into 1 feat? 209.97.84.186 17:34, 15 January 2020 (MST)

No, it's not balanced to take a feat, add somethings to it, and make it a feat. --Green Dragon (talk) 23:23, 16 January 2020 (MST)
Do you have any suggestions? 209.97.84.186 16:57, 22 January 2020 (MST)

Little Sisters (5E Race) ?[edit]

I was looking at the Little Sisters (5E Race) formally known as Little Sisters and noticed that it was marked as Incomplete, I was wondering what may be lacking to cause it to be incomplete? So I may fix and edit it

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I clarified the problem on the page. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished race! --Green Dragon (talk) 00:42, 27 January 2020 (MST)

Samurai 5e[edit]

Is there any way to lock a page? Aside from myself there have been no other contributors to balancing this class for the past couple months, then this morning I noticed three separate people making changes. And not for the better. I'm not saying that I want full control but there should have to be a post in the discussion before changing anything now as I feel I have almost finished making the class pretty balanced. 1/27/2020 --Ancalagon

The next stage for locking the Samurai page is that only admins will be able to edit it. If you want this, let me know. If it's fully locked you can always ask an admin to temporarily unlock the page in case you need to make some changes, and then re-lock it. --Green Dragon (talk) 08:23, 27 January 2020 (MST)
I think I would like it locked for now then. Hopefully people will use the discussion board to voice their concerns and improvements. Not sure if you'd have time to look it over quick but I'd like to think I changed it for the better. --Ancalagon 1/27/2020 1:26pm
Done. Just let an admin know if you need it unlocked. --Green Dragon (talk) 13:24, 27 January 2020 (MST)
So there's finally been a suggestion posted that wasn't nonsense so I have a list of changes to apply if you could unlock the page, thank you. --Ancalagon 2/6/2020 9:52am(EST)
Thank you GreenDragon, the changes have been made that should further increase balance to the class. Request to lock the class again. --Ancalagon 2/6/2020 6:44PM (EST)

Hey GD; when you get the chance can you make Blobby an admin on Discord also? — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 12:20, 28 January 2020 (MST)

DnD Category and Its Uses[edit]

Hey Green Dragon, it has recently come to my attention that the DnD category page on the wiki doesn't seem to actually serve much of a purpose as far as I and several other users are aware. As such, I was wondering whether you had any additional insight into what purpose the category serves and if you had any thoughts on whether a "Systemless" category should be created. Thanks,--Blobby383b (talk) 18:28, 2 February 2020 (MST)

Unlocking a Page[edit]

The discussion on Talk:Naruto: Shinobi (5e Class)#Swift Style: Surge has reached a consensus. We would be thankful for you to unlock the page so we can resume editing. Ref3rence (talk) 19:58, 5 February 2020 (MST)

Devoured[edit]

Hey, I was wondering if you'd like to help me with a class idea: the Devoured from the Magisterium series. --Flamestarter (talk) 14:14, 6 February 2020 (MST)

Sorry, I don't know that series. Send me a link to the class once you have created the page so I can take a look at it. --Green Dragon (talk) 15:00, 6 February 2020 (MST)
No, see, it's not exactly checking I need help with. It's MAKING the class itself. I decided on class because it's too powerful for a race. But never mind. --Flamestarter (talk) 16:39, 6 February 2020 (MST)

Log-in Captcha Puzzle[edit]

Hey Green Dragon, I noticed when logging on from a new device if users have an issue with the puzzle it says to contact Blue Dragon or SgtLion and I don't think they'll have much luck contacting SgtLion if someone would like to update that. I looked around and couldn't find the page myself. Red Leg Leo (talk) 12:44, 13 February 2020 (MST)

I believe you're unable to find it because that's something that needs to be changed from the backend. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 15:42, 13 February 2020 (MST)

Download Metrics[edit]

Is there any way to find out if there have been any downloads of pdf files, and how many? Or if a page has even been visited by users other than the creator? I submitted a quest and I'm wondering if it's worthwhile to work on any others. Dain (talk) 20:56, 13 February 2020 (MST)

Unfortunately, no, not since MediaWiki discontinued this function. --Green Dragon (talk) 14:48, 15 February 2020 (MST)

Featured Article Nomination[edit]

Hello, Green Dragon.

I had fairly recently put up my Variant Battlemage up for nomination on the Featured Articles list.

I'm just curious if there's been any review on the material yet. I understand that it's a very lengthy article with a lot of material to review, so any kind of substantial response will take time. But, if you have taken a look at it, what do you think of it so far? If not, I kindly invite you to take a look at my homebrew class. https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Battlemage,_Variant_(5e_Class)

Bolt of Time[edit]

Hiya GD, I'm sorry but I'm a bit confused by what you meant by this edit you made to this 5e spell. It seems to follow the same precedent that other cantrips such as fire bolt follow in terms of increasing in power by caster level, so what exactly is the issue here? The world needs bullies. Remember to thank a bully today! (talk) 15:41, 17 February 2020 (MST)

Image Resizing[edit]

Hello there, so I am still new at this site and while I was making a race I decided to add an image to it, then I found out that it's a bit bigger than I wanted. So I went to find out how to change the size of the image, but when I tried the method you use here I couldn't change the size. I would like to know what I'm doing wrong please and thank you.--User:Wrath Sos Dovah (talk) 10:48am, 20 March 2020 (EDT)
