I've been trying to get an image for my Lumate race, and I managed to get someone to paint it, but they sent it via e-mail and I don't know how to put it onto a page. How do I get around this? --Calibri (talk) 17:11, 28 June 2018 (MDT)

Great Saber Tooth[edit]

Hello, I've taken the time to edit the race and put a racial class (rough draft) into the Great saber tooth (5e_Race). I looked through the discussion on the race and you mentioned this as a suggested edit. I plan on doing more to it once I have some more free time. Would just like a second opinion on this "Class" set up.

User:Dinomaster337 is the creator of this race (I think). I want to keep it as closely to what he envisioned without making it over powered.

Kuo-Toa changes[edit]

I believe I have successfully balanced and re-worded the homebrew Kuo-toa PC race to more accurately reflect the Kuo-toa in the MM, and the general wording conventions of 5th edition races.

deleted my feat[edit]

Hey I saw you deleted my feat. I know it still needed work but it was easier to have it here for reference and occasional editing. it was the "consuming rage" feat. a heads up would have been nice. though I guess it happened in September so it's been a while. at least thanks for your suggestion. might make it an archetype like you said.

The "heads up" would have been the standard two week notification. Marasmusine (talk) 16:17, 2 December 2017 (MST)

Ranger 2nd variant[edit]

Hey I seen you deleted the page with the class I was starting to use. Was wondering if you still have all the info and if I could get it so i could continue to use the class <3 It is very important since I had already made my character using it and i wont know where to go when i lvl up without the info

I'll email it to you. If you use the "email this user" link to the left (under "tools"), and I'll reply to you with the content. Marasmusine (talk) 15:14, 12 December 2017 (MST)

All right thank you email sent ๐Ÿ’œ My Dm wants me to complete my sheet by this weekend >.< told them iโ€™d do my best lol. I really appreciate you sending me the info. When you email me back will it be under your name here so i know to look out for it?

Hmm I don't seem to have received the email. I will temporarily restore the page. Marasmusine (talk) 13:34, 18 December 2017 (MST)

That is odd. I could give you my email address here and then when you get it erase it ๐Ÿ’œ that way If it gets deleted iโ€™ll have a copy for my BeastMaster 2nd variant archer.

It's up at Ranger, 2nd Variant for now. Marasmusine (talk) 16:08, 18 December 2017 (MST)

Thank you so much iโ€™ll make sure to write it all down. Thank you for being so nice and helping me out. Its truly appreciated.

Skin Walker Lodge[edit]


On June 17th the Skin Walker Lodge was deleted. This was a group the party can build faction with in my campaign, like the Harpers or Lords Alliance in the Forgotten realms. Is it possible to get this restored?

Understand that tagging it Variant rule may not make sense and open to suggestions.

here is the link to the page -

Boon of Invulnerability[edit]

I've came to answer you question about this boon even though i am not the creator of that boon. my answer is this: There are Beginner Homebrew DMs that make their player's character more powerful then they realize. but for my case i make them powerful then make them face of against powerful home made monsters and character bosses. i agree on the fact this should not be given to a regular player character. But for DMs like me who uses boons to make character bosses se this as a good boon for hard bosses.

I'm not convinced that you actually know how epic boons are used. Marasmusine (talk) 15:04, 13 January 2018 (MST)

I need some help[edit]

So the pages I created/ had been working on were deleted on nov. 25. Is there anyone I should talk to about getting a copy of the drakoniant 5e race from archives if you have any so I can continue working on it? Or are they just completely gone now? --Drakonsblade (talk) 20:40, 12 January 2018 (MST)

Resizing External Images[edit]

I thought I'd just let y'know, as this seems to be an issue I've seen you mention a number of times - I have discovered a way to resize external images, I've edited the Common.css, which now allows you to put any image in <div class="externalimage-holder" style="width:50%;"></div> tags, and even external images will be resized. The key here being that Common.css now applies different CSS rules to <imgs> inside class="externalimage-holder" elements. Whooo~ --SgtLion (talk) 01:33, 17 January 2018 (MST)

Naruto Shinobi 5e class question.[edit]

Hey, I'd like to ask you about the class in question. I started editing it awhile ago from the overpowered monstrosity it used to be. I took your advice on the path of silence archetype and would appreciate a review of it. I would also appreciate a clarification of the issues with the class in general if you have the time. Feel free to leave a message on my page, I will check back on it as often as possible. If you decide not to review it, i' d be thankful for a message saying you're not interested. --Dave the far too busy (talk) 23:35, 28 January 2018 (MST)

Dragon Mage[edit]


would you help me out with Dragon Mage?

- how to include Necrotic/Radiant as elements and/or others - how to manage max elements controlled - perhaps adding more elements as level progresses - Dragon Mage Table is inconsistent with the information below (ie, Elemental Stomach doesn't exist anywhere) - starting AC, scaly skin and thicker scales. - Dragon Wings and Draconic Presence: is it possible to get them a little earlier; Draconic Presence DC 9+Prof+Int ? - Dragon's Mind - how about dividing AC bonus and move speed -> Scales & Wings? - Draconic Healing - healing comes too late for too little effect. IF Radiant/Necrotic elements added wouldn't this power be redundant? - I want the class more Dragon Mage and less XElement Bender from Avatar.

I'd appreciate any input you could provide. Thanks!

Looks like the whole thing needs rewriting from scratch. Almost all of it is wrong. Marasmusine (talk) 16:15, 4 February 2018 (MST)
I could try the rewrite, but I'm not sure what the class is supposed to do beyond what's already available to classes in the PHB. Marasmusine (talk) 16:44, 4 February 2018 (MST)

I took a look at the class and it is proposed for deletion i was thinking if i was to rewrite some of the work maybe it wont be deleted.Alucarddragonborn (talk) 15:27, 6 February 2018 (MST)

stupid question[edit]

Would a prostitute be covered by the Criminal Background or could I create a special background for it? --Redrum 14:25, 9 February 2018 (MST)

Thers no such thing as a stupid MR.murder spelled backwards and yes i would suggest creating a new one like Pimp Slave or something like that. Alucarddragonborn (talk) 14:44, 9 February 2018 (MST)

Class Arcane Puppeteer[edit]

The class has the ability to learn and cast Arcane spells and you show a lost of what spells it can learn and you have cantrips listed but under the spell table and casting section you don't show how many cantrips the class can learn. I was also wondering when casting spells and using the puppet to fulfill the somatic requirements does the spell still originate from you?

Thanks for the feedback, I'll clarify that information as soon as I can. Marasmusine (talk) 06:35, 10 February 2018 (MST)

Ardent Crusader fan[edit]

Hey man. I revently started playing again and last year sometime I had been using your ardent crusader model with some tweaks of my own. I have lost my character sheet to the. Ether and was wondering if you might still have your model somewhere and could get it to me through magic of electronic mailing systems.

I'm not Marasmusine, but regardless I've restored Ardent Crusader (5e Class). Please make a copy of it to your computer because it will be deleted again in a few days. โ€” Geodude671 Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)โ€Ž . . 23:41, 27 February 2018 (MST)

Wiki Understanding[edit]

On Requests for Adminship/Azernath you mentioned transclusions and dynamic lists. Would you mind explaining to me what these are, or providing a good link that does this? BigShotFancyMan (talk) 12:09, 6 March 2018 (MST)

I assume Mara was referring to transcluding the contents of one page to another, usually used with templates. You just put it on a page like {{SRD:Ability Scores}} (I used nowiki tags to stop the transclusion, but it'd normally display everything on that linked page on here) and you can duplicate page information without actually, ya know, duplicating page information? And I assume dynamic lists refers to DPLs (dynamic page lists) like we use on this page to dynamically list pages. I don't think we have help pages for them on D&D Wiki, but here you go: DPL and transclusion. Lemme know if you want something specific :) --GamerAim Chatmod.png (talk) 14:16, 6 March 2018 (MST)

4e Vehicles[edit]

Hello Marasmusine, I was wondering on whether you could spread some insight on whether the Buggy (4e Future Vehicle) and the Ride Armor (4e Future Vehicle) you created are equipment/vehicles or creatures so they can have the appropriate categories and breadcrumbs added and possibly have them moved to a more appropriate name space if needed.--Blobby383b (talk) 19:50, 13 March 2018 (MDT)

Ah, I figured out that they belong to the Future (4e Sourcebook) and should have now added the appropriate breadcrumbs/categories.--Blobby383b (talk) 00:30, 15 March 2018 (MDT)

Cauldron of Fear[edit]

Is it possible for a magic item or a special arcane focus to grant the ability to create a potion in 1 day? --Redrum 14:11, 30 March 2018 (MDT)

I'm not Mara but I believe the UA's artificer does something of this description. --ConcealedLight (talk) 15:31, 30 March 2018 (MDT)
Magic item creation is the purview of the DM. Check with your DM. Marasmusine (talk) 11:10, 31 March 2018 (MDT)
I'm the 5e DM of my group. I considering "giving" a gift to 1 of the warlock in my group from her patron. I was just wondering if it was possible to do potions VERY quickly. --Redrum 18:44, 4 April 2018 (MDT)
As the DM you decide that. The suggestion in the DMG is that magic item creation progresses at 25 gp per day, so a common potion takes 4 days; an uncommon takes 20 days and so on. But you can set the rates to whatever you want, either for all magic items or for just potions. You can have an increased rate associated with a feat, or a class feature, or a blessing reward. Whatever you want. Marasmusine (talk) 13:10, 6 April 2018 (MDT)

Crow Caller[edit]

Hello Marasmusine You were a big help when I was working on my King of Games class last year. The campaign got to LV 10 and the biggest problem was the CR gap. I would scan a newly killed creature but not be able to summon it for the next 6 levels for fear of it being to strong. Kind of weak at levels 2-5 as well. I was hoping that you could find the time to look at a new class I'm building called "Crow Caller". It is a lot simpler but I'm not sure about the low-high level damage scaling. I'm sure there are other things I overlooked and would appreciate any input. --Triten (talk) 03:16, 15 April 2018 (MDT)

Dragon Slayer Class[edit]

Hey Mara, I know you have been quite busy lately, but if you can, could you talk to Nemon0416? I ask this because at this point, I would rather not enter into an edit war with them over their improper removal of templates on the Dragon Slayer (Demon Slayer Variant) (5e Class) and Dragon Slayer (5e Class), plus to an extent the Fairy Tail Dragon Slayer (5e Class) created to circumvent the original class almost being deleted.--Blobby383b (talk) 10:04, 17 April 2018 (MDT)

I'll look into as soon as I can. Marasmusine (talk) 12:20, 17 April 2018 (MDT)
Okay, understandably, Nemon doesn't want the pages deleting because of the work put into them. On the other hand, they're a bit of a mess and not particularly original. It might be worth seeing how he would respond to someone improving the pages, it could be a learning exercise. If they are mechanically sound but still not that exciting, they could be moved to userspace. I don't mind working on it a little bit, but probably not till later this week. If we still think they should be deleted, just give it a bit of time and look at it later. Marasmusine (talk) 13:33, 17 April 2018 (MDT)

Sentient Item Balance[edit]

Hello Marasmusine, I have recently noticed that you have marked quite a few sentient item pages with {{needsbalance}} templates. Looking back at these pages, they didn't seem to strike me as unbalanced because sentient items typically have abnormally high power when compared to non-sentient weapons. The Sample Sentient Items section on pp. 216-8 of the 5e DMG shows several examples of sentient items whose power level far exceeds that of other regular magical items. With that said, I likely should have expressed this in the Equipment Design (5e Guideline)#Sentient Items when I created it.--Blobby383b (talk) 11:35, 18 May 2018 (MDT)

I haven't got the DMG handy right now, but what rarity is Whelm? Is it legendary? Whelm is a +3 weapon with 1) a conditional extra damage die, 2) a 1/day special attack, 3) a 1/day low-level utility spell. Since a regular +3 weapon is very rare, the extra features would bring it to Legendary. Certainly not "abnormally high" compared to other legendary weapons.
One editor I spoke to believed that sentient items were supposed to be more powerful than artefacts, which isn't the case, so many of his sentient weapon articles have been tagged. If there's one in particular you'd to discuss in detail let me know. Marasmusine (talk) 09:19, 19 May 2018 (MDT)
Huh, it seems that if anything, blackrazor is above the power level of a typically legendary weapon(2 condition immunities, temp hit points equal to a creatures hp you have killed, non concentration haste, 60 foot blindsight, and a +3 weapon), but overall the sentient weapons appear to be close to a regular legendary weapon in terms of balance. It seems I must have gotten the impression that sentient items are bonkers when first looked at sentient weapons when I first got the 5e DMG and was unfamiliar with how strong exactly they were.
On a different note, I now know that a ton of the sentient items I have looked at while on the wiki are most definitely busted and likely need one or more templates, including some I have worked on myself. Also, thanks for taking the time to clear things up,--Blobby383b (talk) 10:13, 19 May 2018 (MDT)
I've only recently started looking at the sentient weapons here, there's a lot to go through. They can be a bit more powerful if they are prone to conflicts, or have specific attunement requirements. But power should be sidegrades not upgrades. By that I mean that damage output, AC, etc. should still be within bounds, but the item might have an additional function. Marasmusine (talk) 04:16, 20 May 2018 (MDT)

Really Important[edit]

I want to know what happens when im not on the D&D Wiki for along time say 2 years would my account be deleted or would the classes that i have created be marked as abandoned or worse deleted.PLZ get back to me as soon as you can.--Alucarddragonborn (talk) 12:29, 23 May 2018 (MDT)

I'm fairly sure there is no functionality to delete an account from the wiki. The closest thing would be an indefinite block, but accounts are only blocked when users behave disruptively. If you just left the wiki, your account would just sit there, unused. Pages you've created would be marked for deletion or abandonment only if they are incomplete and/or in a state where it would be difficult or impossible to use them or improve upon them. โ€” NPC Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)โ€Žโ€Ž . . 12:59, 23 May 2018 (MDT)

Far Mage[edit]

Hey Marasmusine! I really appreciate the work you've done on Far Mage. I haven't had the opportunity to be playing D&D over for the past couple years, but that might be changing soon. I think I might be able to get a group together, so I've been working on building a world to use. That reminded me the Far Mage class I had essentially abandoned. I have a couple questions before I start to work on it again. I like how you've redone the sanity system for casting at a higher level. I think it's much more balanced than what I had before. There are still a couple points where the sanity percent is referenced (Caiphon's Aid, Eye of the Storm). Should those be reworked to have disadvantages instead relating to some aspect of the Mind of Madness trait, or should they have unrelated disadvantages. Another question is about the spell list that will be the bulk of the work fleshing out the Far Mage. I'm not sure how many options Far Mages should have for spells. Right now on the cantrips it's about 2/3 of a wizards choices, and first level about 1/2. Should that proportion be about right as a sort of heuristic? The last couple two questions go hand in hand. I noticed that you had named a few spells that don't seem to exist yet (Illusory Exhaustion, Mental Backlash, Whirling Tentacles). Did you have very specific ideas about what those would be, or should I start by creating spell descriptions for those before moving on to the higher levels? Lastly, about what proportion of spells should be new? For cantrips and first level it looks to be about a fifth. Does that sound right to be applied to higher levels? I realize you must be incredibly busy with a lot on your plate. I think it's awesome how you've been involved so deeply with so much on this site for so long. I'd really appreciate any feedback you could give to the above questions in however long it takes you to get around to them. Thanks!

- Murder Cat
Hi Murder Cat, welcome back. It's been about 1 year since I worked on the Far Mage, so let me read through it again and I'll get back to you. Marasmusine (talk) 01:57, 3 June 2018 (MDT)
Okay, so it looks like I only rewrote the spellcasting section, and it was my intention to go through the rest of the page at some point. I didn't add those spells with weird names. I'm not 100% sure on the spell proportions yet. The numbers I put in were provisionally similar to a wizard, as I wanted to evaluate the other class features (e.g. what the focus is, if they have a lot of combat potential, or provide more spells, etc). Just glancing through now, I see a lot of different stacking bonuses, which is something 5e limits heavily.
I can delve into it properly one day next week. Marasmusine (talk) 02:15, 3 June 2018 (MDT)

Background question[edit]

Is a Mental Hospital Patient Background a good idea or a bad idea? --Redrum 18:25, 6 June 2018 (MDT)

As long as you put some thought into how people with mental ailments were treated in medieval times (do the research), and how they might be treated in a world with magic and deities.
For example, read this about epilepsy. In a fantasy campaign, if someone has epileptic seizures, is it because of brain damage, or are they actually being attacked by demons, or actually a prophet receiving messages from a god? Is it thought to be contagious, so they are separated from the other inmates of an institution? If it is cause by brain damage, would a greater restoration spell remove the ailment? Marasmusine (talk) 08:40, 7 June 2018 (MDT)
I was thinking of dropping into my campaign a version of Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane and wanted something other than the Criminal background for it. --Redrum 13:31, 30 June 2018 (MDT)

Requesting the return of Soul Warden 3.5 class[edit]

Hey, I know this was back in November 2016 that the last deletion was made, according to the logs when I tried to access the class page. The campaign the character using the class was on hiatus for a time, and we're working to get it back running. The class had been restored by you in the past, I forget if it was myself or one of the other players/the DM who requested it be restored then. I was tasked with editing it to make it more balanced today, as re balancing is part of our work to get off hiatus. I kindly request that, if it is even possible at this point, that it be restored again.

[1] this was the link to the class, I figure that would be helpful, given the time gone since it was deleted

I have restored the page for the time being. I will leave it up for a few days, after which it will be deleted again. โ€” NPC Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)โ€Žโ€Ž . . 21:12, 14 June 2018 (MDT)

DND Magazine[edit]

Hello Mara, this is Cotsu letting you know that I have been drawn to the Dnd wiki magazine project. I have been editing and reviewing pages actively associated with the Oozes and Holy issues and was wondering if you needed any further assistance with anything. Please send me a message indicating said help if it is required. Cotsu Malcior (talk) 12:02, 26 July 2018 (MDT)

Hello, I'm afraid I cannot devote time to the magazine anymore, so basically a new editor is needed. Marasmusine (talk) 08:05, 30 July 2018 (MDT)
Hey, Mara. I noticed you had no time for it, which is why I asked Cotsu to help out, since he has a good knowledge of multiple systems and could vet the content for the magazine. Whenever you have the time, I do have two questions: Was it you who did the layout of the magazine or someone else? And do you remember if the struck-out pages were articles you'd approved, thought needed work, denied, or what? I'm tryna get this thing back up, but I wasn't involved with it before, so these two answers could help a lot! Take care.--GamerAim Chatmod.png (talk) 09:22, 30 July 2018 (MDT)
Sorry for the late reply. I used Word 2013 for the layout. I'm sorry, I can't remember what was happening with the strike-outs.
If I were to do it again, I would just stick to 5e material. One of the biggest hurdles was tying to get people to evaluate 3rd edition material.
I also felt like I was spending far too much time actually balancing and copyediting articles when what I needed were some sub-editors.
Good luck! Marasmusine (talk) 01:31, 5 August 2018 (MDT)
Thank you for the well wishes Mara. I hope we can breathe some new life and thank you so much for the tips and the reply. I know how much work you do for the wiki so thank you for taking time out to give us some pointers. Cotsu Malcior (talk) 08:05, 5 August 2018 (MDT)


Is it possible for a sun to produce something that mimics psychic energy?--Redrum 18:47, 1 August 2018 (MDT)

If that's what you want for your campaign setting, go for it. โ€” NPC Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)โ€Žโ€Ž . . 20:38, 1 August 2018 (MDT)
What kind of psychic energy are you talking about here? What's the context? I have an elder evil in my own game, called the king in yellow(based off an old horror series), he's what remains of an ancient pantheon of gods from afar off sun that calls out to the creatures of the multiverse. He has cults of mad psionics that grow more insane the more psychic power they use. Not sure if relevant but I'm curious to know. —ConcealedLightChatmod.png (talk) 07:50, 3 August 2018 (MDT)
ConcealedLight, I was thinking of doing a planet that MIGHT BE the homeworld of the Mindflayers or whatever they evolved from. --Redrum 18:38, 8 August 2018 (MDT)
Neat. Not heard or seen someone try to build on that area of the game and the origin of the Mindflayers are kept ambiguous for that reason. Good luck. —ConcealedLightChatmod.png (talk) 21:11, 8 August 2018 (MDT)
It is still in the early stages. --Redrum 14:49, 11 August 2018 (MDT)

Hi Mara, just a quick question: there are two users in the Discord server with the name "Marasmusine;" could you confirm which, if any, of the users is you? โ€” NPC Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)โ€Žโ€Ž . . 10:16, 1 September 2018 (MDT)

Well, I had some trouble with it. I seemed to get stuck in a loop of registering and claiming an account, and it telling me that I couldn't because I'd already used my email address or some other nonsense. Marasmusine (talk) 14:14, 1 September 2018 (MDT)
Okay, I can write messages now, which is a step up. It still says that this is an unclaimed account, and then won't let me claim it. Marasmusine (talk) 14:17, 1 September 2018 (MDT)
Oh I see, there are different channels, I must have been on a read only channel before. I feel so old. Marasmusine (talk) 14:18, 1 September 2018 (MDT)

Negative Energy[edit]

Is it possible for a disease to create a hunger so INTENSE that it disrupts natural healing? -- 18:28, 5 September 2018 (MDT)

Diseases have been known to disrupt natural healing and require the body to consume more nutrients than usual, yes.--GamerAim Chatmod.png (talk) 18:41, 5 September 2018 (MDT)
GamerAim, Is it possible (in game terms) for said disease to turn it's victims into undead? --Redrum 18:45, 5 September 2018 (MDT)
Sure. โ€” NPC Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)โ€Žโ€Ž . . 20:48, 5 September 2018 (MDT)

Arcane Puppeteer Shadow/Hand Puppet[edit]

I'm considering this class for a Homebrew campaign I've joined, but I'm confused on the subject of Hand/Shadow Puppets. Are they literally just mundane puppets? If that's the case, wouldn't a Shadow Puppet just be the PC's hand?

Please contact me on Hangouts at if you read this, I'd greatly appreciate your response.

Price Check[edit]

I know this might be a weird question but what would the price of a bikini be? -- 12:57, 29 September 2018 (MDT)

I would also be interested in the price of a bikini (or Swimsuit). --Redrum 13:31, 29 September 2018 (MDT)
Clothes are listed in the Player's Handbook. You just need to choose if it's a common or fine swimsuit. Marasmusine (talk) 01:54, 30 September 2018 (MDT)
I prefer the traveler's bikini, both stylish and practical. —ConcealedLightChatmod.png (talk) 04:57, 30 September 2018 (MDT)


Is there an unholy version of the Holy Avenger out there? --Redrum 18:01, 24 October 2018 (MDT)

Not really. Though you could make one. Some might say the Blackrazor is a pretty good anti-weapon. An easy way to make one would be to switch radiant out for necrotic damage, put the attunement requirement to be evil creatures, removed the creature types that proc the damage and switch them to go off when you strike a good-aligned creature, maybe make it so that creatures within range that hostile or good-aligned creatures have disadvantage on saving throws against spells.

Requesting Insights[edit]

Hey, can you weigh in here as I believe you worked on an epic PC sourcebook at one point and I'm not certain on the spellcasting table of a full caster(Cleric in this case) beyond 20th level. —ConcealedLightChatmod.png (talk) 14:24, 4 November 2018 (MST)

Sorry for the delay, I'm super busy. I'll look as soon as I can. I will say that my sourcebook assumes that all the normal D&D rules are in use: 20th level is the maximum and players continue to gain power through epic boons. Marasmusine (talk) 03:19, 22 November 2018 (MST)

Talk:D&D Wiki on Social Media#Cross-Accountability[edit]

Society of the Blind (or Unseeing) Eye[edit]

Is there a 5e Forget spell? It could be useful for a magical raygun I'm working on. --Redrum 14:05, 15 December 2018 (MST)

Please tell me you didn't get this idea from the Gravity Falls cartoon!!! -- 17:43, 19 December 2018 (MST)
I found a few different ones, here, here, and here. Hope this helps! If not too late... --Cosmos (talk) 16:32, 9 March 2019 (MST)

Santa Klaws[edit]

Could there be a child-eating Santa Claus? -- 17:41, 19 December 2018 (MST)

I hope not. --Redrum 18:19, 19 December 2018 (MST)
Why the heck do you want to know if there is a child-eating Santa Claus (or Santa Klaws)? But either way, there appears to be no search results for a Santa Klaws. --Cosmos (talk) 16:30, 9 March 2019 (MST)

Absolute Darkness (5e Spell)[edit]

Hi there, my name is Cosmos, and I was looking through spells and noticed the spell, Absolute Darkness (5e Spell), which I decided to try and help out with saving it from an untimely demise. And now I want to talk to the creator but I can't figure out who the creator is... I saw that you and someone else had made comments on it. Can you help me? I've made some major changes, and I wan't to confirm with the creator, since it seems like the spell hasn't been touched in a while. --Cosmos (talk) 00:52, 23 December 2018 (MST)

Seven deadly sins Spirit spear chastiefol[edit]

This equipment does have mechanical sense if you have seen the anime or read the manga i feel it is balanced do I need to put an extra tag on it.

Gowther sparkle, the equipment needs to make mechanical sense to people who have not seen the anime or read the manga. And you have not provided enough instructions on how the weapon actually works. It also has balance issues, does it not need attunement? Does it not have charges? Also, you need to sign your comments. You can do this by putting down two dashes and four tildes, like this... --~~~~. The result is this... --Cosmos (talk) 09:14, 11 February 2019 (MST)
Is it anything like the 3.5e Weapons of Sin? --Redrum 17:18, 13 February 2019 (MST)
Yes. Here. --Cosmos (talk) 15:11, 23 February 2019 (MST)

Harry Potter[edit]

Do you know who the Harry Potter expert is? I would like to ask about Azkaban and Dementors. (I would treat the Patronus as a modified familiar.)--Redrum 14:10, 23 February 2019 (MST)

Is there any info on the Knight Bus? --Redrum 14:20, 23 February 2019 (MST)

Has anyone tried to post Boggart Stats? --Redrum 14:28, 23 February 2019 (MST)

Sorry, you said "Harry Potter expert"? There isn't really a designated "Harry Potter expert"... what is your question about Azkaban and Dementors?
There appears to be no search results for Knight Bus or Boggart. Quite a Harry Potter fan, are you? Also, when signing your comments, please use two dashes and four tildes (--~~~~), which results in this... --Cosmos (talk) 15:05, 23 February 2019 (MST)
Redrum, I designate you as the Harry Potter expert, since you know at least two terms from the books (which is two more than me). Marasmusine (talk) 05:45, 25 February 2019 (MST)

Would you treat Quidditch as Aerial Combat? Is there a "sports model broom of flying?-- 13:12, 2 March 2019 (MST)
I don't know about Marasmusine but I would treat Quidditch as Aerial Combat. Also, I don't think there is a need for a "sports Model' Flying Broom.--Redrum 13:37, 2 March 2019 (MST)
I would treat any sport as a skill challenge. Marasmusine (talk) 10:50, 4 March 2019 (MST)

Night Fury[edit]

So I was making a Night Fury creature and there appears to be something wrong with it for some reason: unless I remove all the traits, it only displays four of them? I'm not sure what the problem is. --Dinomaster337 (talk) 28 February 2019 (MST)

should be good. ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 07:04, 28 February 2019 (MST)

tool proficiency[edit]

Is there a way to turn fishing tackle (or an expanded version) into something that requires tool proficiency? --Redrum 15:07, 9 March 2019 (MST)

That depends on how you are using it. I assume you mean for actual fishing in this case, in which you'd need a fishing rod, right? And that would require tool proficiency.
Sorry, I'm just not exactly understanding the purpose of your question here... --Cosmos (talk) 16:28, 9 March 2019 (MST)
The problem is that someone with the Survival skill would reasonably expect that to include being able to use fishing tackle. If you make it a tool kit, it means that anyone who does not have the proficiency can't go fishing. I mean, you could do that for your campaign if you want to, but it seems like an unnecessary complication. I think fishing is just one of those things its assumed most adventurers can do, like horse riding. Marasmusine (talk) 06:48, 10 March 2019 (MDT)
I was thinking about doing a background based around fishing but I guess your right about it being an unnecessary complication. --Redrum 16:58, 13 March 2019 (MDT)
I think a fisher is actually a good idea for background, think of all the stories from literature about fishers and whalers. The Old Man and the Sea, Moby Dick, etc. The background would have the vehicles (water) proficiency.
I did make a Whaler's Kit (5e Equipment) which shows you can have a specialized tool kit that goes beyond what you would expect for normal "survival" fishing. Marasmusine (talk) 08:05, 14 March 2019 (MDT)

Skill Proficiency[edit]

Would Law be an Intelligence skill or a Charisma skill?--Redrum 15:13, 9 March 2019 (MST)

Hmm, I'd say it would be an Intelligence skill, because it has to do with the knowledge of knowing how it works, and how to enforce it, how it works, etc. I don't see as much of a relation of Law with Charisma, other than possibly enforcement, but then I think that'd be through Intimidation or Persuasion. --Cosmos (talk) 16:27, 9 March 2019 (MST)
It depends on what you mean by "Law", you need to be more specific.
If you are just checking your knowledge of local laws, this could be Intelligence (History).
If you involved in a trial, it's going to be a skill challenge involving Intelligence (Investigation) - preparation and interviews - and Charisma (Pursuasion) for presenting your case and swaying a jury.
Marasmusine (talk) 06:48, 10 March 2019 (MDT)
Marasmusine, I was thinking a cross between Investigation and Persuasion.--Redrum 16:54, 13 March 2019 (MDT)

Forge of Kwalish[edit]

Are you still working on this item? I like the idea, but the article has not been worked on in a long time and i would be sad to see it gone or remain a stub. I could take over, if you want to.

Oh yes, please do. If it isn't obvious, the inspiration comes from the Horadric Cube from Diabolo 2. Marasmusine (talk) 05:02, 10 March 2019 (MDT)
thank you! Unfortunately i never have played a diabolo game, but i will try and work from the exisiting examples, as well as a quick fandom wiki search.--Doctor Dee (talk) 05:12, 10 March 2019 (MDT)
Try to have a mix of recipes that the players might try through trial and error (what happens if we stick in a vial of acid and a vial of oil?); and specific recipes that would require some investigation or discovered in treasure parcels. Marasmusine (talk) 06:48, 10 March 2019 (MDT)

Alien Technology (5e Sourcebook)[edit]

Hey, can you take a look at the bottom of this page? There are a couple sections that aren't turning into sections with ===, and I'm not sure what is wrong. --Cosmos (talk) 09:59, 10 March 2019 (MDT)

Need help with the Thri-kreen page[edit]

Hello, as of recently I've been going through and updating old races and pages for 5e, the latest one I've set my eyes on is the Thri-kreen page. I am not an administrator and I don't know the exact process for updating a page but I believe it needs a rework and I'd like to take a crack at it. There are multiple issues and flaws that I have come up with solutions to solve and all I ask is for your permission, I ask you because you were the most active member in the talk section of the page. If you want me to list all the changes I have in mind just let me know.
Sincerely, Living Natural 1
Thri-Kreen (5e Race) looks fairly stable at the moment. Perhaps you could outline what needs changing on the talk page so it can be discussed. Marasmusine (talk) 04:38, 16 March 2019 (MDT)

A bit of a mix up[edit]

Upon further inspection I see that someone created a second Thri-Kreen, the first one is fine but the second one doesn't even have a proper talk page along with plenty of flavor and trait issues, I believe someone copy pasted the link to the other Thri-Kreen talk channel. In all honesty the second page seems abandoned and I'd just remove it all together

Sincerely, Living natural 1

Ah yes, I see. Doesn't seem to be much point to that page, so I've redirected it.
