Spell Organization?[edit]

Hello Sir! May I interest you in a magic trick this fine evening? Well, I'd like to, but you see, I've run into a bit of a problem,. While I understand the basics of coding including syntax and can mod (and copy and paste) with the rest of them, for some reason the first spell I've tried to make, Emberbolt (Which you can find here ), isn't showing up in the appropriate spell lists, even though I've consulted other similar homebrew Cantrip pages and it looks correct. Might I inquire for some assistance, maybe an explanation of what I missed if you can find that out? -Sincerely, Supersmily5 --Supersmily5 (talk) 19:55, 14 July 2017 (MDT)

I've seen this issue before, and it's not your fault. If you preview the page in edit mode, you'll see that you did it right (except you need a summary). I suspect it doesn't show normally due to the DPL results being cached to reduce server strain or something. It'll show up whenever the cache refreshes :) --GamerAim (talk) 20:00, 14 July 2017 (MDT)

Ah, okay. I'll take a look at that summary bit and then wait, but thanks for the clarification. --Supersmily5 (talk) 20:08, 14 July 2017 (MDT)

Page Creation[edit]

Hello SirSprinkles, and thank you for the warm welcome! I hope that joining the wiki will help me learn more about D&D and how to play! I was actually wondering where I would go to learn how to create a new wiki page. I wanted to try and create a prototype class. Thanks in advance for the help!

For which edition? For 5e, go here, for 4e go here, and for 3.5e go here. SirSprinkles (talk) 22:43, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

Titanic Proportions[edit]

Hi. Now that I'm pretty much finished adding to my Garodian Giants, I am considering creating a titan variant for each. Before I create something massively overpowered, what are the general patterns of Titans?--Dinomaster337 (talk) 21 April 2017 (UTC)

In general, I gave each titan the ability to summon an appropriate elemental (the creature, not the type), increased the Strength score by 3 or 4 and the Constitution score by 2, granted 4 bonus hit dice (in addition to the increased hit die size from being Gargantuan), and increased one or more of Intelligence, Wisdom and Charisma. In general, none of the titans has a Strength score above 29 except for the storm titan, and all are Gargantuan. They all also have something unusual in the fluff. SirSprinkles (talk) 20:51, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, you've been a big help.--Dinomaster337 (talk) 23 April 2017 (UTC)
Hey, so you know how each Titan has the abitllity to summon the appropriate elemental; how do you think this would work for the Titan variant of the Mercury Giant, which is based entirely around the arcane realm not the elemental?--Dinomaster337 (talk) 14 June 2017 (UTC)
Simply because they are more arcane could mean that they could conjure any elemental, as if they had cast conjure elemental spell (but, for simplicity's sake, perhaps just say that they can conjure any one of the four main elementals). On the other hand, you could make a kind of arcane elemental (aim for a CR of 5, like the other elementals) and let them summon that. SirSprinkles (talk) 21:10, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

An Error[edit]

Hey. I made this creature Mokelele Mbembe, but I misspelled it. It's supposed to be Mokele Mbembe. Any way to change it?--Dinomaster337 (talk) 19 April 2017 (UTC)

Yes. Next to the "history" tab at the top of the page, there should be a tab that says "move". You can use that tab to rename a page. SirSprinkles (talk) 23:11, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

Adamantine Dragon[edit]

Hey Sir Sprinkles, I was thinking of adapting an Adamantine Dragon to 5e but I am not sure if there are any negative ramifications as to doing so. Plan was to do a cone of fire breath, cone of temporal stasis secondary breath, and of course the usual metallic dragon traits. What do you think? Roteton Kin (talk) 21:33, 14 January 2017 (CST)

I think that would be a good idea, but when I was creating my homebrewed dragons, I tried to keep the numbers of chromatic and metallic dragons equal, so it might be a good idea to come up with a new chromatic dragon to go with the adamantine dragon. SirSprinkles (talk) 15:11, 15 January 2017 (MST)
Sir Sprinkles, have you read the 3.5e books Dragon Compendium, Draconomicon or Monsters of Faerun? They have the bulk of the dragons you homebrewed as well as quiet a few others. I was wondering if you would give me permission to make an adaption rather than a full homebrew for some of the already homebrewed dragons that you have already made. Roteton Kin (talk) 18:26, 15 January 2017 (CST)
Sir Sprinkles, did you get the chance to read the above mentioned books? If not, do you give me permission to do said revisions to the previously released 3.5e dragons and adjust the homebrew variants to have a closer match to the 3.5e versions of them? --Roteton Kin (talk) 12:06, 24 January 2017 (MST)
If you want to make my homebrewed dragons more closely represent their 3.5e equivalents, you could make variants of those dragons and list them on the Dragons (5e Creature) page. As for the other dragons, I'm not sure if I can really grant permission, seeing as D&D Wiki isn't affiliated with Wizards of the Coast. You could always take inspiration from those dragons to make entirely new creatures. SirSprinkles (talk) 14:03, 25 January 2017 (MST)

D&D Wiki Plays D&D[edit]

You're Invited! --Kydo (talk) 20:59, 22 January 2017 (MST)

Ooh... should probably check the setting and altered rules, but the idea of an eldritch knight has been pretty appealing to me. Either that, or a sorcerer/wizard. SirSprinkles (talk) 02:36, 23 January 2017 (MST)
Any kind of spellcaster would be very interesting to play. Its a low magic setting, where most magic has been forgotten, and Spellcasters are looked upon with a mixture of worshipful adoration, and abject fear. --Kydo (talk) 04:39, 23 January 2017 (MST)

April Fool's[edit]

What is your opinion on a Plutonium Dragon? --Redrum 17:30, 25 January 2017 (MST)

</cloak> That's an awesome idea. <cloak> --Kydo (talk) 18:32, 25 January 2017 (MST)
I would suggest a templete. Change the alignment to chaotic evil. Increase Con by 4 and decrease Cha by 4. Change Breath weapon(s) to radiation (and Force if there is 2). Add Absorb Radiation feature. The feature turns radiation damage into healing. -- 13:46, 4 February 2017 (MST)

If I could upvote edits...[edit]

... your improvements to the DPLs would be front page news. --Kydo (talk)

Thanks Kydo. SirSprinkles (talk) 12:41, 26 January 2017 (MST)

Mu Spore[edit]

There are issues with the SRD:Mu Spore that I have raised on the talk page. 15:29, 30 January 2017 (MST)

Welcome to D&D Wiki[edit]

SirSprinkles could you please stop posting the Welcome to D&D Wiki post in my talk page? Ive deleted it 3 times already and i dont want it on my page.Bannanameds (talk) 15:10, 2 February 2017 (MST)

Non-SRD Namespace Pages[edit]

If you find any non-SRD pages within this structure, then please either 1) delete it if its a copyright violation or 2) move it to the main namespace. If you would like to lock the SRD pages along with me, that would be very appreciated. Thanks so much! --Green Dragon (talk) 13:06, 6 February 2017 (MST)

Kinda disappointed that the SRD doesn't actually include ALL the official monsters. I was hoping that we'd be able to have every official monster listed here on the wiki in at least SOME capacity. Clockwerk66 (talk) 21:28, 6 February 2017 (MST)
I suppose we could do something like what the 3.5e SRD did to the beholder (and what I did to the 5e beholder) and state that it isn't in the SRD because WotC considers it product identity. SirSprinkles (talk) 22:37, 6 February 2017 (MST)
I guess we could do that. It still feels like the wiki will be somehow incomplete though, with all the monster pages that just got deleted. Clockwerk66 (talk) 22:43, 6 February 2017 (MST)
Do we at LEAST have all the SRD monsters listed here now? Or are there still ones that are missing? If there's any that are still missing then I'd be more than happy to add them for you, do that our wiki is as complete as possible. Clockwerk66 (talk) 04:42, 7 February 2017 (MST)
We still need all the UA monsters. The UA can just be added alongside the SRD monsters, like at 5e SRD:Feats, don't you agree? --Green Dragon (talk) 07:10, 19 February 2017 (MST)
When you say "UA", do you mean Unearthed Arcana? Clockwerk66 (talk) 09:26, 19 February 2017 (MST)
Yes, since the Unearthed Arcana transcription is sparsely complete. --Green Dragon (talk) 11:28, 19 February 2017 (MST)

5e Golems[edit]

I dare you to do a shapeshifting Wax Golem. --Redrum 14:12, 11 February 2017 (MST)

Done. SirSprinkles (talk) 01:37, 12 February 2017 (MST)

How about a Bone golem? -- 17:32, 5 July 2017 (MDT)

There is already a bone golem. SirSprinkles (talk) 14:37, 6 July 2017 (MDT)

Is there a Fossil Golem? (You do not have to post it. I'm just asking) --Redrum 14:02, 8 July 2017 (MDT)

I do not believe so. I guess you could use the stone golem statistics and say it has fossils embedded in its body. SirSprinkles (talk) 14:49, 8 July 2017 (MDT)


Hello SirSprinkles, would you like to join in at Doom (5e Campaign Setting)/Moons Of Saturn? Marasmusine (talk) 02:16, 18 February 2017 (MST)

Perhaps a gun-savvy merchant or scientist (or other not really combat person) with some skill at arms whose interest in self-defence just became really serious. Other than that, perhaps an officer? I like the looks of that Leader archetype. SirSprinkles (talk) 03:43, 18 February 2017 (MST)
Though, for a semi-capstone, the equivalent of half an Expertise seems a bit lacklustre to me. Perhaps if it granted something else as well? SirSprinkles (talk) 03:46, 18 February 2017 (MST)
Well I'll have a think, but I'm not sure if we'll get as far as 15th level :) Probably an additional command.
I'm not quite ready to make any other character classes. A scientist is a possibility, but there isn't much I can pull from the video games to support them. Marasmusine (talk) 04:51, 18 February 2017 (MST)
Okay, the leader can make field promotions at 15th level now... Marasmusine (talk) 05:11, 18 February 2017 (MST)
Still interested? Last call! Marasmusine (talk) 01:35, 20 February 2017 (MST)
There. Nathan Flynn, Human Marine of the Unknown background. My thoughts are that he woke up in a medical facility very shortly before the campaign and found his equipment there (or somewhere near). SirSprinkles (talk) 17:52, 20 February 2017 (MST)

Ginger Race[edit]

I just want you to know I am a ginger, it's not offensive and I am actually trying to make a legitimate race, I don't think it's funny.

Shortcut templates[edit]

I noticed you've been making use of Template:5c and Template:5s. If you weren't already aware, you can also use Template:5e for similar purposes. E.g., {{5e|Darkvision}} would become [[5e SRD:Darkvision|darkvision]] — Guy (talk | edits) 22:03, 5 March 2017 (UTC)

Thanks. SirSprinkles (talk) 22:08, 5 March 2017 (UTC)
Now Template:5a can save you some keystrokes when inline linking to ability pages. — Guy (talk | edits) 00:43, 8 March 2017 (UTC)
Thanks again. Wow, about two weeks of editing and you've already done so much work streamlining the wiki. SirSprinkles (talk) 03:07, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

Protected ritual spells[edit]

You might have already noticed this, but I've been editing ritual spells so they are categorized correctly. Since you are a sysop and protected these pages originally, would you mind recategorizing these spells when you have time?

(In the unlikely event you aren't already aware, you can see an example of the recategorization here.) I would appreciate it! — Guy (talk | edits) 10:45, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

I have altered all the spells on that list to include "|ritual=yes". SirSprinkles (talk) 19:22, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

Parrying dagger.2[edit]

Hello i changed it a bit what do you think now is it better befor it was complicated and kinda op :D now it should be better

I have raised some issues on the talk page. SirSprinkles (talk) 10:01, 12 March 2017 (UTC)


I hope you don't mind but I've progressed with the next round of the current Doom combat. I had you fire with your shotgun at the nearest zombie. Let me know if you had something else planned. Marasmusine (talk) 16:41, 14 March 2017 (UTC)

Hello, since Flynn used the Medicine skill, you can roll to see if you are proficient with it (per the Unknown background). Are you still interested in playing? Marasmusine (talk) 10:47, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

Oh, I rolled a 17 (I mentioned right after I made the check). I am still interested, its just that there haven't been many edits recently. SirSprinkles (talk) 20:26, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
Oh, that's what that meant :) I'm waiting on player input ATM. Marasmusine (talk) 22:24, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

Hello, sorry, I took your turn with Doom again. Luckily for you I scored a critical. Marasmusine (talk) 19:41, 1 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi SirSprinkles, I'm just wondering if you are taking a break from the Doom campaign? Marasmusine (talk) 11:04, 18 August 2017 (MDT)

Looking for statblock feedback[edit]

Hey there SirSprinkles! I noticed that you made a bunch of edits to the Joy Bayonetta creature a while back. As it so happens, I've recently started my own little project to recreate more of Bayonetta's angelic enemies in 5e format, mostly to bolster our roster of homebrewed celestials. It would be nice to have someone who can provide some feedback on the creatures and their statblocks as I post them here on the wiki (with the appropriate copyright disclaimers of course). Would it be possible for you or someone else (Marasmusine, SgtLion, or Guy perhaps?) to provide that feedback that I'm looking for? I'll likely need it more as I start moving on to the "higher-tier" creatures, where I might not be quite as confident in my ability. Clockwerk66 (talk) 18:20, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

OK. Do you have anything you'd like me to look at now? SirSprinkles (talk) 18:56, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
I do actually! I've started with the celestials from the Third Sphere, where the lowest-ranking ones are. I would be able to post the angel-rank creatures, and I'm just about ready to post the archangel-rank creatures as well. I'm still at work right now, but I can try and post at least SOME of what I've done up to this point before the end of today. Clockwerk66 (talk) 19:42, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
celestial creatures from the lowest-ranking third sphere are now posted. I'll be working on the creatures from the second sphere next, and any future feedback on the stuff I've posted so far will be very much appreciated. Clockwerk66 (talk) 02:04, 24 March 2017 (UTC)

Hey again! Just letting you know that I’m pretty much done with posting my celestial creature statblocks for the time being, since I’ve pretty much covered all of the “non-boss” creatures by this point. If you, Marasmusine, SgtLion, Guy, or anybody else in the wiki have any feedback or general comments at all regarding my posted creatures, then please don’t hesitate to let me know, so that I can better fine-tune them for actual campaign use later down the line.
Links to all of my posted creatures can be found on my user page if you don't want to scroll through the entire homebrew monsters section. Clockwerk66 (talk) 04:34, 4 April 2017 (UTC)

Are there any you'd like me to look at in particular? SirSprinkles (talk) 04:44, 4 April 2017 (UTC)


Can you PLEASE stop this one guy from keep changing it. my dad created it and its annoying that some random guy chagned it without asking hes keep changing it back its so annyoing my dad is starting to get mad about that ...

Path of yi and yang[edit]

Hi that one thing on the page only cuase of the spelling ? because my english isnt the best :/ i think i wont find all mistakes:/


Is there a way to do a class based on the ritual caster feat? -- 22:47, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

Point-based Pact Magic[edit]

Hello, SirSprinkles! Thanks for the recent comments regarding The Formless One patron and The Shadow Weave patron invocations. Moving invocations to pre-existing page helped me a lot.

I recently made a variant rule on warlock's Pact Magic features, namely, using spell point-based systems with it. I did some modifications with the spread and all, but I'm not sure if the overall balancing is okay or anything. I will be greatly appreciated if you or any other users could leave any advices and comments on the variant rule. I was rather ambitious when I first came up with it, but you know, a good feedback can point out what I failed to see and all.

The page is Warlock Class Feature: Point-based Pact Magic. --WeirdoWhoever (talk) 05:15, 4 April 2017 (UTC)

Spacing Paragraphs[edit]

I'm sending this message to avoid entering an edit war. I'm assuming the most recent anonymous edit to Redead (5e Creature) was made by you, but even if it isn't, you've made similar edits to pages I've created in the past. We can't properly indent like is done in the core D&D books, and separating paragraphs like I've done is convention on the vast majority of wikis running on MediaWiki software. What you are doing to so many pages I've made seems to serve no beneficial purpose, and from my perspective only makes descriptions more unpleasant to read. This unpleasantness is especially true on narrower windows or resolutions. Please stop making these edits to pages I have created.

I similarly don't see why you need to "correct" the way I space sentences: by reducing two space characters to one space. MediaWiki is designed to display either method the same way, so these "corrections" in particular serve no purpose other than consuming a tiny bit of server space. - Guy (talk) 04:33, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

Actually, that was me. And it is entirely possible to indent new paragraphs, using a colon (:) at the beginning of a line. Additional colons cause further indents. BusterBobby (talk) 22:36, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
That is my mistake, but regardless I'm just going to revert such edits to most pages I've created from now on. And yes, as you can see from what we're doing right now, that method indents the entire paragraph, not just the first line. If you've ever read a book, and I assume you have, you realize this isn't the kind of indent I meant. - Guy (talk) 00:06, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
     Dudes, dudes! You can totally do first line indents! It's a little ugly on the code side, but totally doable, and there's lots of ways to do it! Just because most people are too lazy to do it doesn't make it undesirable. Actually, I might just make up a little personal template for myself just to make it look nicer when I do want a first line indent. --Kydo (talk) 21:16, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
     There we go. --Kydo (talk) 21:19, 22 April 2017 (UTC)

Question About 5e SRD[edit]

When transcribing the 5e SRD, do you do everything by hand or is there some automation involved? Because that's a lot of hyperlinking, monsters, spells, etc.--GamerAim (talk) 23:06, 27 May 2017 (UTC)

Oh, that? I do it all by hand. And yes, it does make for a lot of hyperlinks and template usage. SirSprinkles (talk) 01:03, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
Doing all that by hand is madness, I admire your dedication.
For the future, if you prefer, I might be able to coax User:SgtLionBot into automating a lot of that sorta thing. --SgtLion (talk) 16:45, 1 July 2017 (MDT)
Thanks. That would be a considerable aid. SirSprinkles (talk) 21:36, 1 July 2017 (MDT)


Is there any difference between iron cannonballs and stone cannonballs? -- 16:29, 12 July 2017 (MDT)

I wouldn't really give them one. SirSprinkles (talk) 22:25, 12 July 2017 (MDT)
One would be affected by spells that target stone, while the other would be affected by spells that target iron/metal. Stone would also probably be cheaper but have fewer hit points and hardness. Historically, iron balls were used, so maybe they deal more damage?--GamerAim (talk) 05:41, 13 July 2017 (MDT)
The main reason I ask is that there is a "slight" shortage of iron in the campaign I'm in. -- 13:40, 12 August 2017 (MDT)

Slime People (5e Race)[edit]

There's an IP being disruptive at Talk:Slime People (5e Race), constantly removing the comments of others. Can you help? AngelicBahamut (talk) 19:04, 24 July 2017 (MDT)

I have left a comment on the talk page. SirSprinkles (talk) 19:51, 24 July 2017 (MDT)
Thanks. AngelicBahamut (talk) 19:56, 24 July 2017 (MDT)


My group has a couple of ideas for backgrounds but can't agree on details. The first is called a Demipaladin. It it a merged Acolyte/soldier background. The second is called the Glitterati. It it a merged Entertainer/Noble Backgrounds. We need an outside opinion. -- 13:28, 19 August 2017 (MDT)

What do you need help with? SirSprinkles (talk) 15:39, 19 August 2017 (MDT)

Runestaff (5e Equipment)[edit]

Very speedy and good work on that page, I had literally stepped back in from my lunch break at work and noticed it had been transformed rather quickly! --Jwguy (talk) 14:50, 2 September 2017 (MDT)

Thanks! SirSprinkles (talk) 22:47, 7 September 2017 (MDT)

Need Help With Formatting[edit]

I would like some help with formatting my page. I'm not used to doing wiki pages. -- User:BJWilliams

Which page do you need help with? SirSprinkles (talk) 22:47, 7 September 2017 (MDT)
Home of user-generated,
homebrew pages!
