Hi! I recently created this class called Teleporter hoping that it could be a fun sort of utility in battle class. I played some PC one on one's with a friend and the class didn't seem too strong but I was hoping to get more opinions on it. I read that you worked on the Planeswalker subclass for sorcerer and thought that would help you to look at it. I'd really appreciate any feedback you had on it. Thank you!--Dfrickenx (talk) 21:34, 13 May 2019 (MDT)Dfrickenx

I love phasing, teleporting, and all things mobility. I'll take a look for it and tell ya what I think. Next time, it is so helpful to link the page you are referring. No big deal, just helps everyone out. ~ BigShotFancyMan 09:54, 14 May 2019 (MDT)
Sorry about that! I didn't know how but this should be the link to the Teleporter class --Dfrickenx (talk) 10:26, 14 May 2019 (MDT)

Solar Knight

I have been playing the solar knight and I have to say its interesting. I haven't gotten to a higher level so I couldn't tell you what that would be like but I would recommend trying it as a variant of a paladin. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Aires (talkcontribs) .

Alright, sounds good. I appreciate you getting back and letting me know! ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 11:29, 3 December 2018 (MST)

Magician overlord

Hey bigshot sorry I don't get on as much anymore youtube is hard to do but anyway you could delete that article if you want i lost interest in it thanks for checking with me though.--Alucarddragonborn (talk) 07:42, 17 December 2018 (MST)

I am not sure I follow. Feel free to add {{delete}} template and an admin will take a look. ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 08:12, 17 December 2018 (MST)

Far-Realm Gazer (5e feat) and Aspect of the Hunter (5e spell)

Hey, how you're doing? I made changes to the (5e feat) Far-Realm Gazer and the Druid/Ranger spell Aspect of the Hunter. Would you take a look, please, when you have the time? Especially on Far-Realm Gazer. It has to give some sort of bonus to Arcana (the visions are supposed to grant you revelations and knowledge from beyond reality)... What do you suggest? (I hope I'm using this talk pages correctly...) Starless (talk) 16:35, 16 January 2019 (MST)

Doing good Starless, thanks for asking and hope the same to you. I’ll check out the edits within 24 hours (I hope) but for now just letting you know message received. ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 16:41, 16 January 2019 (MST)

Page Lock

I recently had a few of my homebrew classes completely changed recently without my consent, and I would like to avoid this situation with some of my other classes. If you would be so kind, could you lock the Merchant, Variant and Eye Mage classes? - WiserVisor (talk)

Regretfully I cannot lock a page solely based on request as that goes against site collaboration. I can take a look in a little bit to see the situations but I have to mention that no one needs permission to edit pages since no one here owns any pages. There is certainly some respect to others that can be given but it is much easier to accept that no one owns anything first. It doesn’t help you right now, but is that helpful in some way for you? ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 17:33, 12 February 2019 (MST)
I guess I can understand that. Thanks for the advice. - WiserVisor (talk) 16:42, 13 February 2019 (MST)

Sorry pal, didn't know that was a thing, I'll do that next time.

Fox of Sin (3.5e Prestige)

Thank you very much for the advice! I made the necessary changes I believe and tagged all the feats with the appropriate tags. It's fine to nitpick I wasn't entirely sure if the page format was mandatory or a more reference for the order, I tried to follow it as closely as I could before prettying it up. Rustysmith (talk) 20:37, 20 February 2019 (MST)

Hey yeah no problem! There’s a few other things but baby steps. Kudos on the fixes. ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 20:39, 20 February 2019 (MST)

I just moved and added categories to the Cursed Retaliation (Chart) page, I don't really know if I could link a category to the prestige class that it originated from or if it has all the required categories listed. That should have covered everything you mentioned earlier in the discussion. Rustysmith (talk) 21:32, 20 February 2019 (MST)
I was thinking the chart should be on the class page instead of its own page. Classes in first party content have the tables/charts for the class within the classes section. ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 07:28, 21 February 2019 (MST)
Alrighty it's been done and thanks again for the help! I added a deletion tag on the Chart Page as well once I finished transferring the text. Rustysmith (talk) 19:30, 21 February 2019 (MST)
Purr-fect! Thanks for your help too! ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 08:54, 22 February 2019 (MST)

Feat Fix

Thank you! --Redrum 14:05, 23 February 2019 (MST)

You’re welcome! But which one are we talking about? A lot got done a few days ago :p ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 14:07, 23 February 2019 (MST)
The Medicine Man one. --Redrum 14:15, 23 February 2019 (MST)
Oh Gotcha! yeah no problem :) ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 06:21, 25 February 2019 (MST)


Hey man thanks for being supportive to me. I have just started about 2 weeks ago and I did review your race it seems interesting and I hope you can come up with more ideas. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by BeastMurder16 (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts.

Yeah no problem. Thanks for taking a look. Feel free to ask around for help here or anywhere. ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 08:21, 4 March 2019 (MST)


I recently made a 5e class called the Voodoist but it does not show up to other users. Is there some way to fix this? thanks --Catmanaz (talk) 17:34, 6 March 2019 (MST)

I see it on the list. Can you look again? ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 18:48, 6 March 2019 (MST)
I did a bit of looking it seams that it only shows up if you are logged in? is it supposed to be like that? --Catmanaz (talk) 14:05, 7 March 2019 (MST)
sorry for late reply. I don’t think it should be that way. I asked around and no one else shared having that experience. ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 09:56, 10 March 2019 (MDT)

Voodoist continued

I can't seam to place a description on my class Voodoist and I was wondering if I was missing some formatting could you take a look and tell me. --Catmanaz (talk) 11:21, 12 March 2019 (MDT)

I assumed you meant "summary" so I edited the [like this] to show where to put that. If you didn't mean this short summary block, then it too should have something. If you wanted something paragraph like, create another header similar to "the voodooist" and "Spirit whisperers" and insert your description there :) ~ BigShotFancyMan talk contributions 11:27, 12 March 2019 (MDT)
Thank you. That formatting you showed was very helpful.

Chimeran (5e Race)

Im not here to argue, I just want to ask, why do you keep undoing my edits? Is it making it overpowered? Is it giving it too much choice? I just want to ask. PS:im trying to get the link to the right to work.--Azeric The Traveler (talk) 05:45, 12 March 2019

Hey thanks for using the talk page to sort things out. The ability score changes didn’t make sense and giving the option for resistance to the most common damage types I think is too strong. The discussion page for the chimerean works to discuss options for the page. I really liked how you formatted an option for traits and I am a user that appreciates variants or options on an existing page instead of multiples of an idea. ~ BigShotFancyMan talk contributions 20:27, 12 March 2019 (MDT)

Flame dancer

I recently finished a class called the Flame dancer but I got an abandonment notice on it before I could finish. I don't know what will happen if I delete the notice, so I was wondering if you could take a look and then take care of it the right way? --Catmanaz (talk) 14:24, 14 March 2019 (MDT) Edit: The abandonment has been removed but a grammatical help was put on. I'm not sure what to do with that because their is no clear explanation.

Hey sorry I didn't reply. Another user took care of the abandoned and I started posting elsewhere. I've commented on the talk page for Flame Dancer about the grammar thing. If there are more questions, feel free to ask! ~ BigShotFancyMan talk contributions 09:30, 15 March 2019 (MDT)
I did my best to redo the grammar and I got a notice about unbalanced so I reworked the class again. Can you take a look?
There are still some grammar issues. I wouldn't sweat it. If I have extra (extra!) time I can run through it myself. I placed the needsbalance on the page. Your change helps me understand what your goal is and I think without the double proficiency bonus it is much more acceptable. I will remove the template, but there are still issues with balance. I find balance critique easier than grammar proofreading so I can get to that much quicker. Good job so far though. ~ BigShotFancyMan talk contributions 13:13, 15 March 2019 (MDT)
I removed the experienced performers feature. Thank you for your feedback and help. I hope it gets moved to the actual class list soon. --Catmanaz (talk) 14:05, 15 March 2019 (MDT)

Duel Terminal :Order of the Warlords

hey its Dmoice here wanted to let you know the project hasnt been abboned been dealing with some mental health issues the past few moths know no new content has been added i put up wip on all the pages so could take time to deal with whats going on with me hope you understand and will remove the abboned tags thanks Dmoice (talk) 05:46, 16 March 2019 (EST)

For the record, if you want to open a discussion with a user on D&D wiki, please do so on their talk page (i.e. here) rather than on their user page. Based Quincy (talk) 10:40, 16 March 2019 (MDT)

Hey sorry about that was an honest mistake clicked the editor on the wrong page Dmoice (talk) 20:27, 16 March 2019 (EST)

no worries Dmoice. I had assumed it was an honest mistake. I understand what you’re saying. I hope you understand if it pops up inactive again I’ll place a template. Feel free to communicate you’re still working on it like you did right here. ~ BigShotFancyMan talk contributions 18:54, 16 March 2019 (MDT)

Soul Gem

I just wanted to say thank you for helping me fix where I needed to move my spell Soul Gem to. I am very new to program formatting and that was my first creation. If you have any other suggestions or comments about the spell please let me know. I'd also like to know if you think the spell is balanced or not. --WaterTurtle 08:10, 27 March 2019 (MDT)

Yeah no problem. Welcome to the Wiki and you'll get the hang of it. I'll share my thoughts on the Soul Gem page too. ~ BigShotFancyMan 08:23, 27 March 2019 (MDT)

Dungeon creation manual

I have been working on a D&D other called the Dungeon creation guide but I need some tables in order to finish it. Could you put an example of one somewhere? --Catmanaz (talk) 08:11, 5 April 2019 (MDT)

Hey Cat! I replied on that page, hopefully those help ya. ~ BigShotFancyMan 07:05, 8 April 2019 (MDT)

In regards to balance

As a response to your concerns about the balance of my Weaponsmaster prestige class. I have reduced the power of the extra attacks given by the prestige class and have removed the feature allowing the purchase of weapons at 1/2 price Leíf (talk) 16:42, 5 April 2019 (MDT)

Cool, I can update about the 1/2 price but the updates to the extra attack didn't change anything. The rules already prevent extra sneak attacks or divine smite so those comments are redundant. The issue is 100% the number of attacks being allowed. I do see the level change requirement but a weaponsmaster still gets 5 attacks at level 15. That is well ahead of the curve for classes with extra attack. The condition that the combatant needs to swap weapons becomes moot since they have a feature that freely lets them swap. So as long as they have weapons readied there isn't an issue.
I think there might be something balancing about not adding ability modifier damage but not enough to excuse the amount of attacks being made, in my opinion. I'll try to look at some average damages and compare 10 Fighter/5 Weaponsmaster to 15 Fighter.
The feature I like most is critical attack. The class gains another attack based on a condition that has a 5% (10% as Champion) chance. I will borrow this idea ;-) ~ BigShotFancyMan 07:05, 8 April 2019 (MDT)
I am thinking of foregoing the extra attack and just have it so that as long as you do not attack with the same weapon two times in a row you get bonus damage that accumulates turn after turn, but I will keep the extra attack on a critical hit. Leíf (talk) 16:14, 9 April 2019 (MDT)

Psion Edits

While yes, I see your reasoning in undoing my edits to the Psion, 3rd Variant (5e Class),"because they were exactly the same as the UA Mystic", but I do not believe you quite checked the Unearthed Arcana Mystic, as, it was not exactly the same, almost (if not) every Discipline had at least one change, and a few talents were slightly changed. Secondly, the point of the class is to be a Mystic Variant, it is supposed to be a more balanced version of the UA Mystic which plays for the most part the same. If you can undo the undoing of the edits, that'd be great. Sincerely - Atom Qalok. Adaddadadadadad (talk) 18:51, 28 April 2019 (MST)

Please note our policy that, "You are also promising us that you wrote this yourself, or copied it from a public domain or similar free resource. Do not submit copyrighted work without permission!" --Green Dragon (talk) 23:08, 7 May 2019 (MDT)
Thanks GD. ~ BigShotFancyMan 11:10, 8 May 2019 (MDT)
Something about the Unearthed Arcana mystic you are forgetting is that it is meant to be playtesting and changed by the DM if considered unbalanced, which is them giving us permission to use and alter it. And again I restate I did not submit copyrighted content, it was not the same as the UA Mystic.Adaddadadadadad (talk) 19:57, 10 May 2019 (MST)
The class table follows the same progression as the UA Mystic except for Telepathy. Reading the psionics descriptions almost each part matches the UA Mystic. Telepathy was nerfed same feature. Strength of mind nerfed but again same feature. Potent Psionics, again nerf to damage but literally same feature. Consumptive Power, word for word coy. I mean it goes on. WotC didn’t intend people to change a few numbers and replenish the material when they said play test. If you wanna change numbers at your table great but what’s pictured here changing a few details ever so slightly and disguising it as original material. ~ BigShotFancyMan 23:12, 10 May 2019 (MDT)


Is there a Great Old One called Umberto? --Redrum 18:26, 8 May 2019 (MDT)

I cannot find anything fantasy fiction like that has that title. People and a song were the only hits. ~ BigShotFancyMan 07:01, 9 May 2019 (MDT)
The main reason I asked is the name came up in a J. D. Robb book and I found it interesting. --Redrum 17:02, 15 May 2019 (MDT)
I have the same experiences when I read books. “Aw that’s be a sweet name for this idea!” ~ BigShotFancyMan 17:12, 15 May 2019 (MDT)

Sign of Umberto

Is it possible to use insanity as a means of protection against Mind Control? -- 16:59, 15 May 2019 (MDT)

If you’re using the rule, I think you could most certainly decide that a character with a certain threshold of insanity cannot be mind control. In a typical 5e style though, you could give advantage against enchantments. ~ BigShotFancyMan 17:14, 15 May 2019 (MDT)

Deletion Proposals

I don't need to support a page to be deleted. The current policy is valid as of now, and what I have done is looked over the proposals for violation of the policy. Their deletion is valid per policy, and an admin must make the judgement or not (not necessary me!). --Green Dragon (talk) 09:36, 19 June 2019 (MDT)

The months of conversation seemed to hinge on your endorsement or not GD. That's the reason I've included you in those summaries. At one point, you came off against their deletion, and another you support policy as written. A lot of text was typed by others and a lot of people wanted your approval on the issue. I can use reasonable logic to determine primary sole contributor and will move forward based on your message here. Thanks for some clarity on the 100+ CfD! :D ~ BigShotFancyMan 09:48, 19 June 2019 (MDT)
I may disagree with the policy or not, but still what's the policy right now is the policy. Glad I could clear this up! --Green Dragon (talk) 10:15, 19 June 2019 (MDT)

Pandaren (Variant)

Hello Bigshot, I just came to ask about a 5e race I made just recently, the Pandaren (Variant), the page does not show up on the search terms of Google when another user tries to find it or even on the website, and I can only find it if I go directly into the website and type the name, and the only other way other users can view it is if I send them a link (As of now). Is this because it is a new page or something else? Thank you!--DonPan-Meiji.Fr (talk) 6/23/19, 12:19 (EDT)

I've looked it over and it seems Geodude671 has sorted it out. —ConcealedLightChatmod.png (talk) 03:45, 24 June 2019 (MDT)
a "dnd wiki padaren variant" search shows nothing but I can find on the wiki when I use its search bar. Seems good to me. ~ BigShotFancyMan 11:15, 24 June 2019 (MDT)

Succeeding FA Aarakocra Pathfinder Race

I noticed that you succeeded the Aarakocra (Pathfinder Race)'s Featured Article nomination. Afterwards, you need to make a summary page like the ones in Category:Featured Article Synopsis. --Green Dragon (talk) 23:31, 14 July 2019 (MDT)

Just responding

Sounds good MinMaxer! ;-)   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   12:23, 25 July 2019 (MDT)

Greeting Users & Problematic Usernames/Users

Hey Bigshot, just wanted to let you know that I have started to welcome the users who have joined the wiki and came across a spam user, User:Yoga Burn Review4 who needs addressing among a few other possible usernames created on May 6. If I come across any other problems I will be sure to let you know.--Blobby383b (talk) 20:12, 22 August 2019 (MDT)

Np, after looking through all the new users usernames, I did also found 2 additional usernames that need to be looked at, though there are likely a few more I missed. The ones in question are User:Michael Thomas for having the name of a public figure and User:Bio Bot for having a username that implies they are a bot.--Blobby383b (talk) 19:34, 25 August 2019 (MDT)

Need Help

I can't make my races/classes/monsters! I need help! I'm just putting this out into the site hoping to get something back. Anyway, I get to this letter puzzle thing and try to get it done and to the best of my knowledge, I'm getting it and the computer puzzle thing right, so what gives? Is there something else that I need to do? Please respond as quickly as possible.

sorry for the delay, has your issue been resolved?   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   13:14, 29 August 2019 (MDT)
Yes it has. Thank you for worrying. By the way, I'd like it if you could please look over some of the things I've made, maybe use a couple in your own games (if you have any) and tell me what you think and if there's anything I should change in my discussion area. Thanks! Flamestarter (talk) 13:38, 31 August 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter

Hello. Apparently, when editing my Scarcaster (5e Class), I messed up the coding or something on the table and the DC. I'm not sure what I did, how I did it, or how to fix it, so I wanted to ask your help since you've fixed one of my pages in the past. --Dinomaster337 (User Talk:Dinomaster337) 3 September 2019 (MDT)

Talking About Classes

Hey there Bigshot, with me being back, I was wondering whether we could talk about several different classes(Arcane Archer, Battlemage, and Warden) that have had minor concerns brought over on their respective talk pages while I was away. I know you have been busy, but I hope to hear from you soon so we can collaborate on the potential changes/fixes to the classes and maybe start up a new project if you got the time and are interested. Wishing you the best.--Blobby383b (talk) 21:05, 3 September 2019 (MDT)

I'll jump over there now and try to respond to each one before bed.   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   21:08, 3 September 2019 (MDT)

Want a Partner?

Hey, so, I was thinking that someone as advanced as you in this little wiki would be a good partner to show me some of the more advanced nuances of the wiki, like the affiliation tag and such. I would also really like some help making some other things like monsters, and races that I have in mind. Thank you, and I hope you consider partnering with me for a short amount of time. Flamestarter (talk) 17:36, 21 September 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter

I would love to join you on this journey. This might just be the sort of thing I need. I hope you forgive me if I am not....overly active in trying to see what you are up to BUT! if you share the link to whatever page you are working on, I will happily jump on over and collaborate! (slightly excited thinking about this adventure) Thanks for posting and keep me in the loop. my thing on discord is BigShotFancyMan#6254 and feel free to direct message anytime :-)   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   19:59, 21 September 2019 (MDT)
Well, unfortunately, I have no discord myself, but I will make sure to message you every time I make a change to any pages we make together. I have an idea, but I don't know the specifics so I haven't exactly made it yet. I made a race called a Corebot and I was hoping you'd help me make a monster for that. And if you need help with anything (or just want another perspective) message me. I'll be your partner for anything. Flamestarter (talk) 06:04, 22 September 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter
Ok, BSFM, I have a few things for you to help with if you like. Any of my races or classes. I'm putting them in your very capable hands. Be sure to tell me what you change afterwards. If you use a discussion page, it would be best if it were mine, but you can use yours if you'd like. :) Flamestarter (talk) 18:04, 23 September 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter
