Oi! Buddy![edit]

Its Pika, from discord with the https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Aura_Warrior_(5e_Class) aura warrior class. after doing some balancing and fixing up some wording as requested, would you say its better balanced than before, or does it still need some modifications? If so, please put it in the discussion page.

Hey Dude![edit]

I like what you said about game balance. It rings very true. Quincy (talk) 19:36, 12 December 2018 (MST)

Thanks! Not very openly said point I think often around here. --Yanied (talk) 20:02, 13 December 2018 (MST)

Request for Adminship?[edit]

I've been thinking, Yanied... You've been around for a while now, you're a prolific editor, and your contributions are consistently helpful and high-quality. I get the impression that you'd do well as an administrator, and you'd be able to do a lot of good for our website if you were entrusted with administrator tools. Would you like me to nominate you for adminship? Quincy (talk) 22:57, 20 January 2019 (MST)

Oh, gee that sounds like a big responsibility. I'd like to better know the details of what an admin really does before I commit with any wrong idea. Otherwise, thanks, I'd be grateful for nomination!--Yanied (talk) 13:13, 21 January 2019 (MST)
You can read about what admins do here on Wikipedia. In practice, on our wiki at least, it's not actually that big a responsibility - being an admin just means you're a "trusted user" and you have a bit more power than other users as a result. You don't really need to change what you're doing all that much. Take some time to consider it, at least. No pressure. Quincy (talk) 13:40, 21 January 2019 (MST)
Oh, cool. Then yeah, sure, I'd be happy to be nominated. Thanks!--Yanied (talk) 13:45, 21 January 2019 (MST)
I'm glad to hear it! Since you agreed, I've created a page for your nomination Here. Quincy (talk) 14:47, 21 January 2019 (MST)
Oh wow, thanks. So I have to answer those questions, right?--Yanied (talk) 14:57, 21 January 2019 (MST)
Yep, simple as that. Quincy (talk) 15:07, 21 January 2019 (MST)
I say that most people have been able to work with you a bit, would you be interested in another adminship nomination? --Green Dragon (talk) 23:24, 6 June 2019 (MDT)
Ah, thanks for the notice. I feel I'm getting a bit more of the hang of things... But I think I need a bit more confidence before I jump into that again. Maybe another time? Thanks again.--Yanied (talk) 23:29, 6 June 2019 (MDT)

Litch[edit]

I just want to say, great work on Litch (5e Race). It was in a poor state when I tagged it 2 years ago and you really polished it up well. Marasmusine (talk) 11:38, 8 March 2019 (MST)

Thanks! Means a lot hearing it from the one who tagged it--Yanied (talk) 11:43, 8 March 2019 (MST)

Image Links Tip (You may find this useful?)[edit]

Hello Yanied, I noticed the last edit on your userpage where you said that didn't know how to link to image pages without creating a huge picture. When you're linking to images, you can change the output size of the image by, instead of simply using [[File:Example.jpg]] to link to an image, adding a vertical bar at the end of the link followed by how many pixels in size you want your image to be. For example, if you want to limit the size of an image to 200 pixels, you could use the link, [[File:Example.jpg|200px]]. Does that help? Based Quincy (talk) 19:28, 30 March 2019 (MDT)

Thanks but I was thinking more along the lines of how it shows up on a watch list just as a link and there's no picture. I feel if there's a picture it just takes up a lot of room visually.--Yanied (talk) 20:30, 30 March 2019 (MDT)
Bringing this topic up again, you could use [https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/File:Peddler_by_Granger.jpg this format] to produce links like this if you don't want the picture to show up.--Blobby383b (talk) 04:43, 21 September 2019 (MDT)
Oh, yeah. I've often used that for source linking outside rather than inside the wiki. I should get back on this (got distracted). Thanks--Yanied (talk) 20:16, 22 September 2019 (MDT)

Abandonment[edit]

Dude, I... I gotta say. For one, I dont know how to actually like, message people? so this is the best I got... Thank you. The Apocalypto class that I... well, abandoned months ago now. It is... immaculate. i love it. And I have you primarily, almost entirely you, to thank. So... Thank you. So much for fleshing out the bare husk I had tossed aside... 50.96.89.57 23:46, 30 March 2019 (MDT)

Oh, you're welcome! I always liked the idea of the four horsemen so it was very fun and I'm very glad you liked it! Thanks for stopping by!--Yanied (talk) 14:43, 31 March 2019 (MDT)


Ralis[edit]

Hello! I recently saw you edited up the Ralis race, and it is awesome that you did so, especially because writing isn't exactly my strong suit however, the direction you went with it is quite different from what I imagined the race to be. Essentially you created a perfect homunculus. The Ralis, while could be considered that are the orb itself, it is a soul cage. Or as one of my buddies calls it, it turns you into a meat gundam. The soul gets sucked into the orb, then you control the meat suit. I understand its confusing, but essentially I wanted to create a magical item, that is the race itself, the orb is the race, not the body itself.

Ah, yes, sorry if I mussed up your vision a lot... It's just that I have a preference against making races that use a base race, due to their variability, which can sometimes be a balance issue. The traits themselves also had effects that were either not wholly 5e standard, or made the race too strong at a starting level. It was awesome seeing what you did have though, and if you want to try and make your vision come to fruition in a different way, I'd say do it!--Yanied (talk) 19:41, 8 June 2019 (MDT)


Lospiri[edit]

Hey, don't know how to direct message on here, so this is how we message I guess. You asked about the Lospiri setting on my page (Cammino3). While I was originally planning on making it a 5e setting, after extensive homebrew work in 5e, I've come to the conclusion that it won't work for the setting. I will be using work based off the stuff tagged as Lospiri here, but it will be an official setting of a trpg system that is currently under development.--Yanied (talk) 10:31, 20 September 2019 (MDT)

Cool. Just wanted to know. (Btw you used my signature lol)--Yanied (talk) 10:40, 20 September 2019 (MDT)

Pokémon Evolution[edit]

I noticed on the Deino page the feats act as the pokemon evolution and thought that was a pretty slick way to deal with that quality. Do all the pokemon you help with or create use the same process? Like, I won't find a Raichu race, but I would find a Pikachu with a racial feat Raichu?   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   09:38, 23 September 2019 (MDT)

Yeah, you could. Thing is that some of the races were made readily as last evolutions (because their first evolution may not be appropriate or enough to be a race), so this is not possible for all of them. Truth be, credit goes to CL for mentioning how feats act as evolutionary in Discord. I just acted and tried it out. ^ ^; If I do any other pokemon races, I may add more of them, yep.--Yanied (talk) 11:27, 23 September 2019 (MDT)
I wanna make a Pokémon race, but I don't know what already been done. Can someone help me? Flamestarter (talk) 16:19, 24 September 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter
Hey, sure. You can check out all the pokemon stuff here--Yanied (talk) 20:07, 24 September 2019 (MDT)

Checkup![edit]

Hey, I was wondering if you could check my corebot race again to see if I missed anything? That would be great and I'd really appreciate it. Flamestarter (talk) 16:22, 24 September 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter

Sure. I'll give it a look-see--Yanied (talk) 20:08, 24 September 2019 (MDT)
I have left my review on the talk page--Yanied (talk) 21:15, 24 September 2019 (MDT)

Racial Help[edit]

I'd like some help making a race, small Cybertronians. Not normal size like Boulder or Bumblebee, but smaller ones like Arcee and Groove. Do you think you could help me? I'd owe you a favor and be happy to repay it when you need a fresh pair of eyes. Flamestarter (talk) 15:13, 30 September 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter

Sure, I can lend a hand. Exactly what help do you need and in what parts? Regarding size, if they are indeed Small, that's fine and they'd be like dwarves. If you mean Tiny, then that means they use the variant rule.--Yanied (talk) 18:47, 30 September 2019 (MDT)
No, no, see, the "smaller" Autobots are actually like 10 feet tall. They're smaller because normal sized ones are almost 15. I think that would count as large. Also, are you available for helping with lore and fluff on my Shade race? I took the link like you suggested and it lead me back to you. Love from Flamestarter (talk) 19:07, 2 October 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter <3
Ah. In that case, yes, the cybertronians would be Large. As a courtesy note of caution, for any large race maker: Large races have an inherent bonus due to their size lending strength and allowing them to wield certain weapons, as well as grapple easier (iirc). So Just be aware of that for the balance aspect.
And sure, I can fluff up the race if you'd like :)--Yanied (talk) 19:11, 2 October 2019 (MDT)
You are amazing, Yanied! Thank you so much! I will send you the Cybertronian link a little later. Flamestarter (talk) 19:17, 2 October 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter
I was unable to start the Cybertronian page yesterday and the rest of my week is really busy. If you could get it started, that would be awesome and I could add in some things. Flamestarter (talk) 04:35, 3 October 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter
That's fine. I will start the bare skeleton, as I don't have much experience with what a cybertronian even is. I also fluffed up the Shade (5e Race).--Yanied (talk) 07:10, 3 October 2019 (MDT)
Thank you very much! You did an amazing job and I love it so much and you're amazing and I'm very appreciate!! Flamestarter (talk) 14:10, 3 October 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter
You did a lot of the work yourself, so no need to thank me. There's just some issues with the balancing and all, and I'll just check for wording after.--Yanied (talk) 14:12, 3 October 2019 (MDT)
Aww, you're sweet on me! Anyway, If you need help with mechanics of a race, class, etc., you tell me, because I'm oddly good at it. Not like odd for everyone, odd for me. Flamestarter (talk) 03:46, 12 October 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter
I'll keep that in mind, thanks.--Yanied (talk) 16:12, 12 October 2019 (MDT)

Administration[edit]

All aboard the S.S. Adminship!

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

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

Now that you are an admin I would say more burden is placed on you, but I really hope you enjoy being an admin and I hope you decide to stay around on D&D Wiki for a while more to come. Welcome to Adminship. Again, you're now part of "The Face" of D&D Wiki. --Green Dragon (talk) 23:35, 15 October 2019 (MDT)

Sincere congrats, dude. Glad you passed the RfA! Welcome to the club! Based Quincy (talk) 23:43, 15 October 2019 (MDT)
Thanks! I hope I'll be able to uphold the duty and all.--Yanied (talk) 23:44, 15 October 2019 (MDT)
Is there a test for becoming admin on here? I'm confused. Flamestarter (talk) 13:50, 16 October 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter
There is a nomination process and, because we are democratic, an election and discussion, essentially.--Yanied (talk) 13:54, 16 October 2019 (MDT)
Congratulations Yanied. Yeet Yeet!   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   06:05, 17 October 2019 (MDT)
Thanks BSFM!--Yanied (talk) 07:36, 17 October 2019 (MDT)

Checkup![edit]

Hey, Yanied! I finished the spell Angel's Arrow and the weapon Element Gun. I was hoping you could take a look at it. -Your best bud, Flamestarter (talk) 13:48, 16 October 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter

Sure.--Yanied (talk) 13:54, 16 October 2019 (MDT)
I have left my reviews on the pages. Nice.--Yanied (talk) 07:36, 17 October 2019 (MDT)
Thank you so much! I try my hardest. Flamestarter (talk) 11:48, 17 October 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter

Vatranite[edit]

Hey, Yanied. I really appreciate your help with some of my things, so to thank you, I'd like to assist with the Vatranite race. Give it a good look-through. The race is a really good idea and I think my grammar-freak nature might be able help. Flamestarter (talk) 17:21, 1 November 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter.

Oh thanks. To be honest, I just wanted to let it simmer a bit because it isn't abandoned just yet and I'm having a bit of a burnout with all the writing I have to do. So I was just shifting to incrementalism and focusing on classes more.--Yanied (talk) 20:28, 1 November 2019 (MDT)
Yo, Yanied, thanks for your concern on my Siren class. Hey, actually, I have the mechanics I think about wrapped up, but I would love some help with the fluff. I'm just plain awful at this stuff. Anyway, if you could take care of that, that would be great. I'm not saying like, "do it now", no, I mean when you have the chance. Flamestarter (talk) 16:31, 13 November 2019 (MST)Flamestarter
Sure. I'm not too familiar with the game but I do believe it is a set of specific individuals. Anyway, I'll do my best--Yanied (talk) 17:13, 13 November 2019 (MST)
You did an amazing job, like usual! I love it! Flamestarter (talk) 17:26, 19 November 2019 (MST)Flamestarter
Anytime.--Yanied (talk) 19:52, 19 November 2019 (MST)

Baby Sister[edit]

Hey, my baby sister is on this site and she's going to be doing a few things on here including making creature pages and races. We've talked about this a little and I feel like she could benefit from your help and from other people on the site. Just like some help with fluff and maybe some balancing. Love Flamestarter (talk) 09:19, 26 November 2019 (MST)Flamestarter

Sure, I'd be glad to.--Yanied (talk) 09:31, 26 November 2019 (MST)
Thank you! Flamestarter (talk) 10:16, 26 November 2019 (MST)Flamestarter
Hey, my sister just finished her first race, Seawing. Can you look it over, maybe leave a comment in the discussion page for her? Flamestarter (talk) 07:55, 28 November 2019 (MST)Flamestarter
I have left my review and some problems to discuss on the page talk. I avoided stubbing and tagging it for now.--Yanied (talk) 14:48, 28 November 2019 (MST)

Bored.[edit]

Yanied, I am so bored and have 0 ideas for anything. Do you have anything you need help with or maybe just something you don't know how you want it to look? I'd love to give you a hand since I have nothing else to do at the moment. Seriously, nothing. Flamestarter (talk) 18:52, 4 December 2019 (MST)Flamestarter

Hahaha, yeah that's actually creeping up on me too at the moment. I think it's holiday fatigue. If you ever need anything to do, you can try delving in the swamp of abandonment to adopt or fix up pages (that's where I reskin races and classes). Other than that, I'd say try to unwind a bit and let ideas flow to get rid of that fatigue. Cheers!--Yanied (talk) 07:19, 5 December 2019 (MST)
Well, the abandoned thing sounds good. I can never unwind, though. It's just impossible for a person like me, always high-strung, always high-energy. It's just... hard. Anyway, I'm going to try to help out with some of the abandoned pages and such.
Hey, if you're bored, if you could look over my Scarlet Spider Suit and Fire wolves, or really anything that you don't recognize on my profile, that' would be great. Flamestarter (talk) 17:26, 5 December 2019 (MST)Flamestarter
Sure. It's not so much I'm bored, rather that everything seems very uninteresting. So I'm slowing down a bit here on the wiki to go work on stuff elsewhere and, you know, keep the juices flowing one way or another.--Yanied (talk) 07:18, 6 December 2019 (MST)
Cool, thanks! And if you just don't have time, don't worry about it. Flamestarter (talk) 07:33, 6 December 2019 (MST)Flamestarter

Marionetista[edit]

Hey Yanied, I have a class here that I would like to play, But it is incomplete, ive read that you are a good person to contact if there is something incomplete and wanted completed, its also in Portuguese, the only thing its missing is archetypes i think. Thanks a heap. Ekalb

I'll give it a look-see. Usually everything here is supposed to be written in english...--Yanied (talk) 20:57, 11 December 2019 (MST)
Thank you, the language isnt an issue, my laptop automatically translated it. Ekalb
Now that ive read over it again, there seems o be a fair bit missing lol. You dont have to finish this if you dont want to, i just thought it was a cool idea that might be fun to play. Thanks either way. Ekalb
Something went weird and when i refreshed an error showed up, i saw your responce for a split second before it was removed. Ekalb
Yes, it seems my message was deleted or overwritten due to simultaneous edits (O - O) Welp. I wouldn't mind if it was in english. Maybe I will rewrite it in english. I will let you know if I start it. For now, maybe take a look at other puppeteer classes, like Puppeteer (5e Class). Thanks for stopping by.--Yanied (talk) 21:13, 11 December 2019 (MST)
Thanks so much, i will look around for another that stirkes my interested. Ekalb
You know, a marionette actually isn't that different to a puppet. The only real difference is that a marionette is normally controlled from above with strings while a puppet is hollow so it can be manipulated from within. That doesn't mean that a marionette can't be a puppet or a puppet can't be a marionette. They're kind of interchangeable nowadays, you can use either word for either product. And that's the random fact of the day for you. ^_^--Flamestarter (talk) 14:00, 20 January 2020 (MST)

Talk:Infinity Blade (5e Equipment)[edit]

Thoughts?

Thoughts Posted. Works neat in my head. Just needs a bit more imo--Yanied (talk) 13:52, 12 December 2019 (MST)

Shielder[edit]

Yanied, thanks for taking a look at the shielder class and your input, when it is finished I hope you'll take another look. AriaVehemente (talk)

No problem.--Yanied (talk) 07:02, 17 January 2020 (MST)
Would you mind taking a second look, ive completed most everything except one subclass, and the flavoring. need to know if its OP. please and thanks. --AriaVehemente (talk) 00:19, 21 January 2020 (MST)
No problem.--Yanied (talk) 07:07, 21 January 2020 (MST)

Elementborn[edit]

Besides puppet facts that I got off Phineas and Ferb, can you take a quick look at my new race? Their like dragonborn but based off the elementals instead of dragons and I think I did pretty good, but then again I always think I did well. I'd love a second opinion. --Flamestarter (talk) 14:02, 20 January 2020 (MST)

Sure--Yanied (talk) 14:03, 20 January 2020 (MST)
Thanks for your help on my newest race, Yanied! I knew I could count on you to help! Love, --Flamestarter (talk) 13:01, 21 January 2020 (MST)
No problem.--Yanied (talk) 13:44, 21 January 2020 (MST)
Hey, Yanied... I made my first Gargantuan creature! I'm so proud of myself! Gyarados is possibly my most complicated creature yet and I worked very hard on it. Could you take a quick look-see over it for me? --Flamestarter (talk) 23:01, 24 January 2020 (MST)
Sure. For future reference, you can start a new header for a new subject just to make it more organized. Thanks! --Yanied (talk) 07:20, 25 January 2020 (MST)

Pokemon[edit]

Hey, Yanied, I was looking at Palkia and Dialga and I was thinking maybe you and I could work on maybe making monsters based on those characters as like boss monsters at the end of a high-level campaign built around Pokémon. What do you think? Also, I'd love it if you could look over my Pokémon stuff.--Flamestarter (talk) 21:00, 25 January 2020 (MST)

You can link the pokemon stuff you want me to look over. And go ahead with the boss creatures if you want.--Yanied (talk) 09:51, 26 January 2020 (MST)

https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Absol_(5e_Creature) https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Persian_(5e_Creature) https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Aerodactyl_(5e_Creature) https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Litwick_(5e_Creature) https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Cofagrigus_(5e_Race) https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Electivire_(5e_Race) https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Emboar_(5e_Race) https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Pangoro_(5e_Race) https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Aggron_(5e_Race)

I know it's a lot, and if you just don't have time, I understand that. As for the boss monster idea, I was hoping you'd hope since it would be a huge undertaking. I mean, I can do it myself, but it would take a while and a LOT of thinking. --Flamestarter (talk) 09:57, 26 January 2020 (MST)
I'll what I can do.--Yanied (talk) 09:58, 26 January 2020 (MST)
Thanks Yanied! Flamestarter (talk) 13:03, 26 January 2020 (MST)
Here you go: Palkia (5e Creature). I see you made a dialga creature, but the features look unfinished.--Yanied (talk) 09:18, 27 January 2020 (MST)
Ooh, thanks for telling me. Anyway, you did an amazing job on Palkia. Flamestarter (talk) 12:47, 27 January 2020 (MST)

100 Pages![edit]

Yanied, I hit my goal! I got 100 pages on this site and I have over 700 more ideas to choose from to do next! From Shade to Wartortle, my first to my most recent! I'm so proud with myself! --Flamestarter (talk) 06:36, 6 February 2020 (MST)

Nice.--Yanied (talk) 07:21, 6 February 2020 (MST)

Psyche Warrior[edit]

Hey, Yanied, I just finished a class and I was hoping you'd give it a once-over, maybe move the abilities around a little, and give me your thoughts. I could really use a little help with it, nothing too big. --Flamestarter (talk) 10:34, 10 February 2020 (MST)

Posted.--Yanied (talk) 12:13, 10 February 2020 (MST)

Shadow Magic[edit]

Took me longer than I said but this book, Tome of Magic (3.5e), has information about shadow magic if you can get your hands on a copy. Red Leg Leo (talk) 10:36, 14 February 2020 (MST)

Oh, neat, thanks. I'll keep this in mind when I start learning 3.5e after 4e.--Yanied (talk) 11:00, 14 February 2020 (MST)

Pokeball[edit]

Hey, Yanied, can you check on an item of mine, the pokeball? I want to raise the CR of the creatures affected by the item but I don't know if I can safely. --Flamestarter (talk) 21:28, 15 February 2020 (MST)

My two cents are posted--Yanied (talk) 20:12, 16 February 2020 (MST)
Thanks, man. I raised the rarity of the normal pokeball and I hope that'll help. --Flamestarter (talk) 14:56, 17 February 2020 (MST)

The X[edit]

I’ve been considering moving the page of around 20 5e classes to remove the word “The” from the page title, as it just sounds clunky and often restricts makes the pages seem restrictive. I just figured I’d check in with an admin before making such a large change to make sure there’s actual precedent. -Ref3rence (talk) 07:16, 21 February 2020 (MST)

Cool. It is an awkward thing honestly, and some races have the same problem. Thanks for dropping in.--Yanied (talk) 07:18, 21 February 2020 (MST)

Thanks! I’ll probably do the same for races afterward. -Ref3rence (talk) 07:20, 21 February 2020 (MST)


took over a page that was abandoned did a total rewite[edit]


how do i remove the abandoned status on the page?
i have cleared all the other statuses on the page.
very new to all this.
thanks

No problem, and glad to see you take up the poor orphans. You just edit using the tag on top and delete the line starting with {{abandoned|}}. Oh, and bear in mind to sign your messages with the signature icon (Signature icon.png) at the editing toolbar at the top of the workspace!--Yanied (talk) 06:57, 25 February 2020 (MST)


nope I'm done spent hours fixing that page and someone went in and reverted it to the original so i made a new page and none of the links work and it was tagged as incomplete and will be deleted in 3 days ... i dont know enought html to fix it and i have had it i took a screenshot of the page as it was i am just done i was planning to make several homebrew character races giving them back the power of the original race for the experienced dm to work into their worlds but this has put me off im doing all this on my phone and have to keep stopping to look up how to do things as i don't know html......

What is the page? Maybe I can help.--Yanied (talk) 11:30, 25 February 2020 (MST)

i don't know how to link it to here but if you look up harpy owl race you should find one that is awful listed as abandoned look at the edit history and look before it was reverted there should be a second page that is listed as incomplete and unbalanced it is the new page i tried to make with all the unworking links.

I believe this is the race: Harpy, Variant (5e Race). So according to the admin who undid your edits, it was because your formatting was off, using only raw HTML. Also, he thinks you copied it from the book due to the "kobold press tome of beasts" that was at the top of the page. And it was not properly written as a race. It had a lot of creature qualities. Lastly, you did the edits anonymously under an IP rather than with your account. Please use your account to edit when possible instead and sign your comments. If you want, I can look over the race.--Yanied (talk) 11:55, 25 February 2020 (MST)
thats the one and i used the monster from the kobold press book so i put the name and page in there as a reference for people i am aware it has ALL of the features of the monster they have been balanced out to have all its racial abilities by 5th level. i have been playing since 2nd ed came out and have made many races into player races in my homebrew i do not take away things from the monster race i slowly introduce them as the characters level otherwise arnt we just playing the core race mechanics with different shapes.
You might want to consult the 5e Race Design Guide for help and consider checking out some of the comparable Featured Articles. As I see it, the language and flavor of the race from your edits certainly appears to have been copied somewhat. The race template is also completely gone. Multiattacking and negative ability scores for a race is also not really something in 5e, and blindsight needs to have more constraints since it is so powerful. If you look around at some of the completed 5e races, you'll see what makes them different from official races is also their lore as well as their mechanics. Also, again, please use the signature button to sign your comments.--Yanied (talk) 12:20, 25 February 2020 (MST)
As an update, I have completed the race in question.--Yanied (talk) 09:20, 26 February 2020 (MST)

Campaign Seeds[edit]

Hey, Yanied, can you tell me what exactly a campaign seed is? My sister wants to put a faction that I created on here, but I have no idea how to do that, and all I've seen about factions is "campaign seed", a term I don't understand. Any help would be nice, or if you don't know but you know someone who does know, send them to Christian Wolf. Thanks. --Flamestarter (talk) 09:55, 25 February 2020 (MST)

Here is the page: Campaign Seeds (DnD Other). They're basically non-specific campaign ideas you can "plant" into generic settings. But they are generally not long enough to be entire settings themselves. Think of them as something like quests with environments or plot hooks to new things. So a faction can be a campaign seed in that it leads to a new questline via recruitment or a faction war or something.--Yanied (talk) 10:26, 25 February 2020 (MST)

Better than a Longsword[edit]

Can you user-only lock Collapsible Sword (5e Equipment) or block ip 170.185.249.47? They have repeatedly edited the page to be ridiculously overpowered, and undoing their hourly edits is tiring. -Ref3rence (talk) 10:19, 4 March 2020 (MST)

Sure, thanks for bringing it to attention. Done--Yanied (talk) 12:49, 4 March 2020 (MST)

Thank you! -Ref3rence (talk) 14:59, 4 March 2020 (MST)

A question.[edit]

I have been using dnd wiki for about 2 months and i noticed that there are abandoned pages, I was wondering if there was a way to get to the abandoned pages directly so that maybe I could save them? from,Asmodeuscosmas

Well, I can give you this link: Abandoned
That should take you to all the abandoned pages. I am often working there as well--Yanied (talk) 14:01, 4 March 2020 (MST)

thank you so much! I'm Glad that you sent me this,some people have good ideas,they just dont work them well enough,anyway, thank you! 12:57, 5 march 2020

Hey, Buddy[edit]

Hey, Yanied. How are you these days? I just wanted to talk a little while if that's ok. I have a lot of things in my head that I want to quiet down and/or put on here, so it's nice to have someone to talk to, ya know? --Flamestarter (talk) 14:06, 12 March 2020 (MDT)

Hi Flame. I don't mind. Everything's pretty hectic these days on this planet, I'd say, and I'm no exception. It is nice to have people to talk to in these trying times.--Yanied (talk) 14:18, 12 March 2020 (MDT)
Hey, if you ever need a buddy to talk to, you got me at least. I'm a chatty person by nature, so... I'm also good for advice, even though I'm only a kid. That's what people always think. --Flamestarter (talk) 15:24, 12 March 2020 (MDT)
Alright, thanks. And nice of you to drop by :)--Yanied (talk) 16:15, 12 March 2020 (MDT)
No problem! I always got time to see one of my friends. :) --Flamestarter (talk) 17:33, 12 March 2020 (MDT)

I am so-o-o-o bored. Please tell me you have something for me to do? I am completely useless at helping with the abandoned pages or incomplete as I have often no idea what the goal of the page is since I can't exactly talk to the creator, but I can help with a page that you're working on if you want it. P.S., I have no inspiration for new pages. --Flamestarter (talk) 11:37, 27 March 2020 (MDT)

I don't exactly have much of a work load either (^ ^;). I've been making work stretch by fixing only a page a day. But Real Life is keeping me on my toes when the wiki isn't.--Yanied (talk) 15:24, 27 March 2020 (MDT)
Yeah, no hope there. I'm trying to think up new items or creatures, so I guess I'll start making random things, seeing if any of it works. Other than that, though, I got zip. --Flamestarter (talk) 13:02, 28 March 2020 (MDT)
Ok. I just find there's too many broken things in need of fixing to make new things at the moment. Good luck --Yanied (talk) 13:23, 28 March 2020 (MDT)

Problematic IP[edit]

I hate to be the kind of person who asks for a block, but could you take a look at the edit history of Machine Doll (5e Race) and IP 2600:8804:4B00:1122:AC58:DD99:EC2E:F4EC ? -Ref3rence (talk) 15:29, 30 March 2020 (MDT)

Hmm, they seem to be removing the content. I'll get onto it.--Yanied (talk) 21:41, 30 March 2020 (MDT)

Thank you! -Ref3rence (talk) 22:07, 30 March 2020 (MDT)

5e Creature Preload[edit]

Hey, Yanied, I'd love it if you could take a look at the talk page for the 5e Creature Preload. Another user and I have put in suggestions for changes on that page, but as we are not admin, we cannot enact it ourselves. Please take a look and tell me what you think of it as soon as you possibly can. Thank you! --Flamestarter (talk) 07:58, 27 April 2020 (MDT)

Noted. I left my 2 cents--Yanied (talk) 10:19, 27 April 2020 (MDT)

Rainwing[edit]

Hey, Yanied, I need some help. My sister's article, the Rainwing race, keeps getting edited, messing with the balance or adding traits. I was wondering if you could take a look at it, alter maybe a few of the traits to balance it, then lock it? --Flamestarter (talk) 07:02, 15 May 2020 (MDT)

I'll take a look at it. For now I've just locked it from IP edits, which should solve the problem with the anon.--Yanied (talk) 11:16, 15 May 2020 (MDT)
It looks like most of the problems you had with the page, you fixed, so why is there still a stub on there? Shouldn't you remove the things that you fixed and possibly took it off altogether? Flamestarter (talk) 17:59, 15 May 2020 (MDT)
I didn't add a range or anything. And I also didn't cull the traits very much.
It seems the anon addressed some of the balance issues. I have revised the needsbalance tag. If you still have trouble with the anon please tell me.--Yanied (talk) 18:52, 15 May 2020 (MDT)
Will do, good buddy. Hey, how have you been lately? I know this is a stressful time, and I wanna make sure that you're doing ok. Flamestarter (talk) 07:36, 16 May 2020 (MDT)
I am doing fine. Can't complain when I know there's others going through worse. I hope you and your family are safe likewise.--Yanied (talk) 15:05, 16 May 2020 (MDT)
Oh, you know, the regular stuff... stress, family, yada yada yada. I'm glad you're good! --Flamestarter (talk) 14:10, 17 May 2020 (MDT)

Re-balanced Barbs Reaper[edit]

As requested, I went and made some changes to the Barbs Reaper subrace, but I do request that we keep the bonus of extra cash because not all dungeon masters allow XP, so GP is the closest thing to XP I can allow players to get while remaining true to the source material. And I also request permission to remove the incomplete tag. Thanks.

--Fellow creator, Picigu9 (talk) 13:52, 19 May 2020 (MDT)

It looks better I guess, but it has the slight flavor of april fools, though I assume that to be due to the source. I'm going to add the tag and then remove the balance for now then. Thank you for your prompt edits.--Yanied (talk) 14:32, 19 May 2020 (MDT)

New Race Collab[edit]

Hello, Yanied, how are you? I joined the community a couple of days ago; as an admin, you sent me a welcome message and already helped me with my race's page settings, I thank you for that. I actually joined the community just to relax and let my creativity flow freely, thus aiming to create a couple of races and maybe a class. I am not a D&D player, and I don't intend to be. But then how did I get here? I have friends that play and presented this wonderful universe for me, as I love to create fictional characters for existing universes (OCs), I started creating a party and a story for them. I discovered this wiki when searching for different races for newer characters I was creating, and it was a great resource. Now I got to the point in my creation where I designed new races, a couple actually, for now, and I thought there was no better place to present them then in here.

So, a couple of days ago I started my journey here designing one of these races, and I am pretty much done. There are a few things missing yet, and I did not write their historical background until now, but I am sure to have this done by the end of this night. Though seemingly finished, as I told you I am NOT a player, therefore I do not have the knowledge needed to in fact make these races viable and playable, and that is what I would like to do. I desire to create these races in a way they are enjoyable for playing. So I would like to know if you would be interested in helping me out in this collaboration, as you will see, I got lost on the racial traits for instance. If yes, I am open to discuss anything about their history, society, and mainly traits to make them great for every player. If not, and thank you attention, and if you could indicate a user that might enjoy doing it, I would be glad to talk to him or her.

Thank you for your time, sorry for the long text haha. Bye for now :]

Hi and thanks for dropping, Kylua. I'll take a look over your race, sure. If you ever need help with balancing issues, we have helpful users here that can assist! Be sure to sign your posts with the signature button or ~~~~! Happy brewing!--Yanied (talk) 20:09, 22 May 2020 (MDT)
Hey there! Thank you! That link will be very helpful! I saw you are a flavor helper, what does that mean? --KyluaHayes (talk) 10:18, 24 May 2020 (MDT)
Flavor helper means that I help with writing out the "flavor" and fluff kind of stuff. :)--Yanied (talk) 10:20, 24 May 2020 (MDT)

New Idea[edit]

Hey, Yanied, I had a new idea today. What if elementals could be mimicked with futuristic technology? Unfortunately, I have no idea how to actually... do that, so... can you help me figure that out or point me in the direction of someone who can? Thanks. Flamestarter (talk) 14:25, 3 June 2020 (MDT)

Well, elementals, strictly defined in DnD terms, I believe are intelligent and pure forms that are living made from the essence of the elemental planes. In this category, I would say they can be mimicked in the form of something I like to call a spark, or energy. Basically, through the power of futurism, we can imagine energy as having its own mind. This energy can be manipulated in a variety of ways then. It can inhabit a conductive body like a metal golem, for example. Go a step further and it can basically attract or magnetize other elements to suit its form. But due to its volatility as a plasma, it will always need some suitable container. That's my take on it anyway, after years of playing flash games ^ ^;--Yanied (talk) 14:47, 3 June 2020 (MDT)
