So the ring of mind shielding can house your soul if you die while wielding it. It then lets you to telepathically communicate with anyone who puts it on afterwards.
Mystics can use their most dangerous control abilities if they can telepathically communicate with their target. RAW you don't need to be "alive" to use your abilities, most of them just require a body.

I'm considering allowing the musket and pistol from the DMG into my next setting. Should any classes have proficiency by default?

What should a fire arm expert feat have besides proficiency? I was thinking the ability to craft ammo for cheaper, an expanded crit range or extra crit damage and the ability to switch between pistols quickly so if you have multiple loaded pistols you can get a large volley off once per encounter.

thoughts?

Vision: Darkvision 60 feet
Treetop Dweller: You have a Climb speed of 30 feet, and Advantage on Athletics checks related to climbing.
Fearless: You have Advantage on saving throws against the Frightened condition.
Prehensile Tail: You have a tail which grants you Proficiency in Acrobatics. It can also hold items like a third hand, but it isn't strong or dexterous enough to wield a weapon.

Tel-Amhothlan - Half-Orc/Half-Elf
Ability Score Modifiers: +1 Dexterity, +1 Strength
Size: Medium
Speed: 30 feet
Vision: Darkvision 60 feet
Relentless Endurance: When you are reduced to 0 hit points, but not killed outright, you can instead choose to be reduced to 1 hit point instead. After using this trait, you cannot use it again until you complete a long rest.
Fey Ancestry: You have Advantage on saving throws against being Charmed and are Immune to Magical Sleep effects.
Keen Senses: You have Proficiency in the Perception skill.
Muddied Heritage: Tel-Amhothlans are chaotic breed and can favor either orcish or elvish aspects of their lineage. Choose the Orcish Brutality, Elvish Grace or Fae Magic subrace options.

Orcish Brutality:
Ability Score Modifier: +1 Constitution
Savage Attacks: When you score a critical hit with a melee weapon attack, you increase the damage inflicted by +1 dice.
Powerful Build: You are treated as being one size category larger to determine your capacity to Push, Pull, Drag, Lift and Carry.

Elvish Grace:
Ability Score Modifier: +1 Dexterity
Fleet-Footed: Your base walking speed increases to 35 feet.
Natural Athlete: You have Proficiency in the Athletics skill.

Fae Magic:
Ability Score Modifier: +1 Charisma
Mystic Talent: You can cast one Wizard cantrip of your choice. Charisma is your casting ability score when casting the cantrips provided by this trait. At the DM's permission, at character creation, you can trade this racial feature for Drow Magic (PHB pg24); this choice cannot be undone later.

@ZeroReborn
Generic fluff, for those who give a damn:

The union of elf and orc is an oddity indeed, but when it happens, the resultant hybrids are weirdly graceful and well-formed, compared to their more common half-human kin. The mixing of elven and orcish blood is somewhat unstable, leading to great diversity in what traits are manifested by each individual hybrid. Surprisingly, the most common of tel-amhothlan origins stems from the Underdark, where drow men have been known to mingle with orc slave women, rather than risk their lives in the beds of their own females.

@Sharpcharm
Dworg - Half-Orc/Half-Dwarf
Hated and reviled by all but the most open-minded of dwarven clans, on most worlds, dworgs come into existence in only two ways; when a dwarf woman is assaulted by an orc and survives, or when a dwarf falls so far into evil that he -or she- will willingly consort with orcs. Though some accounts also exist of duergar deliberately breeding halfbreed offspring with orc slaves to use as superior, though still expendable, warrior-slaves.

Ability Score Modifiers: +2 Constitution, +2 Strength
Size: Medium
Speed: 30 feet
Vision: Darkvision 60 feet
Relentless Endurance: When you are reduced to 0 hit points, but not killed outright, you can instead choose to be reduced to 1 hit point instead. After using this trait, you cannot use it again until you complete a long rest.
Martial Heritage: You have Proficiency with the Handaxe, Batleaxe and Greataxe.
Sturdy Frame: Your movement speed is not reduced by wearing heavy armor.
Savage Attacks: When you score a critical hit with a melee weapon attack, you increase the damage inflicted by +1 dice.

Poker_Star

@Methnerd
Reintroducing "exotic weapons" seems like a bad idea. What they should be is martial weapons, but if you are unfamiliar then you need to take time to train in them.

The logic here is that being proficient in martial weapons represents a general level of competence, rather than one on one training with every weapon on the list.

Dwelf
Dwelves, also known as Alfar, are the fruit of rare unions between elves and dwarves. Resembling elves with the stature and something of the proportions of dwarves, these deceptively frail-looking creatures possess far greater strength than is apparent, alongside keen minds, driven attitudes and some of the strengths of both their ancestors.

Ability Score Modifiers: +2 Strength
Size: Medium
Speed: 30 feet
Vision: Darkvision 60 feet
Blood of the Elder Races: You have Resistance to Poison and Advantage on saving throws against the Charmed and Poisoned effects. For special effects keying off of race, you are treated as both an elf and a dwarf.
Gifts of Creation and Destruction: You have Proficiency in your choice of two of the following: a martial weapon, a set of Artisan's Tools, a musical instrument, the Arcana skill, the Nature skill, or the Medicine skill.
Right of Blood: You belong to a subrace which determines the remainder of your abilities. Choose the Born to Stone, Born to the Wild, Born to Magic or Born to Darkness subrace.

What race tho? Clearly you need a shield or you're still sorta squishy, so choose STR or DEX. You want CON of course, and a little bit of CHA, but not necessary 16. I think ideal would be 16 in attack stat and 14 in CON and CHA.

No point going for a dwarf, since you can't wear armor and already get weapon proficiencies. Maybe go mountain dwarf for the stats if you want to use a STR weapon. Half-orc and goliath aren't terrible either. Dragonborn perhaps, but they're kinda gay. Scourge aasimar might actually be awesome.

@Garbage Can Lid
Born to Stone - These dwelves are particularly dominated by their dwarven ancestry, making them hardier and more adept at surviving in the underground environments of their kin.
Ability Score Increase: +1 Constitution
Heed the Earth: You may add double your Proficiency bonus to History checks relating to the origin of stonework, and can cast the Mold Earth cantrip.

Born to the Wild - These dwelves possess wild elf ancestry, which grants heightened grace and awareness when it is the dominant aspect of their blood.
Ability Score Increase: +1 Constitution
Keen Senses: You have Proficiency in Perception.

Born to Magic - When a dwelf possesses high elf ancestry that comes to dominate its racial mixture, it is possessed of an even sharper mind and inherent mystical abilities.
Ability Score Increase: +1 Intelligence
Arcane Birthright: You know 1 cantrip of your choice from the Wizard spell list, which uses Intelligence as its spellcasting ability score.

Born to Darkness - Only born of the union of drow and duergar, these "dark dwelves" possess magical talents unlike either of their progenitors.
Ability Score Increase: + 1 Charisma
Superior Darkvision: Your darkvision increases to 120 feet.
Sunlight Sensitivity: You suffer Disadvantage on attack rolls and on sight-based Perception checks made whilst you or the object of your attention is in direct sunlight.
Gloaming Hexes: You can cast the Eldritch Blast cantrip. At 3rd level, you can cast Unseen Servant once per long rest. At 5th level, you can cast Spider Climb on yourself once per long rest. Spells cast with this trait use Charisma as their spellcasting ability score. However, you cannot use spells granted by this trait if you are in direct sunlight.

Mul
Though many dwarven clans are uncertain of the prospect of intermarrying with humans, such unions can bear fruit. Sadly, most of the mulzhennedar are born into slavery, the result of long-lived tyrants forcing humans and dwarves together to breed a heartier, more valuable slave-stock.
Ability Score Modifier: +2 Constitution, +1 Strength
Size: Medium
Speed: 30 feet
Vision: Normal
Tireless: A mul ignores the first level of Exhaustion it suffers, and regains two levels of Exhaustion when it completes a long rest.
Limitless Endurance: A mul increases its hit point maximum by 1 point and further increases it by +1 point each time it gains a level.
Dwarven Vitality: A mul has Advantage on saving throws against Poison and Resistance to Poison damage.

With their inquisitive and friendly natures, it should be no surprise that trysts between humans and gnomes aren't unheard of. When such unions bear fruit, it's often quite a surprise to the gnomish parent, but most gnomes will welcome their halfbreed offspring, giving half-gnomes a surprisingly hospitable upbringing. Gnomish ingenuity and human adaptability proves quite the effective combination, as it turns out.

Ability Score Modifiers: +1 Intelligence, +1 Dexterity, +1 to one ability score of your choice
Size: Small
Movement: 30 feet
Vision: Darkvision 60 feet
Humanoid Build: You are treated as being a Medium creature to determine your capacity to lift, push, pull, drag and carry loads.
Works the Angles: You can use an Intelligence check to determine your Initiative, instead of using a Dexterity check.
Jack of All Trades: When you are called upon to make a skill check you do not have Proficiency in, you can grant yourself Advantage on that check. After you use this trait, you must complete a long rest before you use it again.

I'd call them simple weapons. A musket isn't any harder to operate than a crossbow.

That should be a tool proficiency.

an expanded crit range or extra crit damage
I wouldn't, they already have sharpshooter.

the ability to switch between pistols quickly so if you have multiple loaded pistols you can get a large volley off once per encounter.
That doesn't really seem like a feat, more like a class feature.

Remember, going by RAW there is no way to remove the loading property for such weapons, so they are not going to be useful for characters with the extra attack class feature. You could give them a !xbow xpert but then you've just made crossbows and bows obsolete. By injecting them as they are they are useful to weapon-using classes like rogues who do not have extra attacks without forcing fighters to use them as well.

I'm going to be playing dnd for the first time this weekend and, together with my dm, i've picked a half elf red dragon sorcerer. While filling up my sheet i noticed that my starting equipment offers the choice of an arcane focus or a component pouch, which basically do the same thing. Can i just have the focus be a pair of bracers so i can still shoot fire while making pretend pistols with my hands? I'm assuming the focus has to be on my arms so a necklace with a crystal won't work.
I'm also worried that if i try to secretly cast something in a social setting to help us it'll look really obvious if i'm waving a wand around. Instead if i was using bracers i could just distract a potential enemy with a minor illusion by wiggling my fingers behind my back, giving us an opening for a surprise attack.

Unironically, Pact of the Chain warlock. There are a lot of roleplaying opportunities, and the nature of the class is built around having a lot of abilities that you can always use.

While the fighter will struggle to stay relevant once you're out of combat, and the wizard will struggle to stay relevant once he's out of spell slots, you can always find something relevant for your little imp buddy to do.

After a drunken night in the tavern, the barmaid accuses your paladin of sexual assault and rape. The paladin admits he drank a little, but recalls nothing. It's her word against nobody elses.

@Harmless_Venom
Every Dex character, except Rogues and Bladesingers, can use a shield and gets extra attacks. 2-3 attacks with a Rapier are comparable to 2-3 and a half attacks with Short Swords and then it's a wash when +2 AC is a factor. You MIGHT make a case for an extra 1d6 from Hunter's Mark.

For Bladesinger, dual short swords necessitate Warcaster and they occasionally use their bonus action to activate Bladesong and Misty Step.

For Rogues, they can't use offhand attacks when using SCAG cantrips, and they need their bonus action to disengage unless they are Swashbucklers. Most Rogues are better off at range than trying to risk melee, and that makes Xbow Mastery far superior to dual wielding.

The town's sexual assault tribunal allows you to use a zone of truth, but insists that only they be allowed to ask questions, to protect the victim. Through their questioning they determine that the paladin and the barmaid both had sexual relations with each other last night while the barmaid was inebriated, preventing her from consenting. Since she regrets it now, they determine that it was rape, and request the paladin report before them for sentencing at dawn.

It's fucking zone of truth, get a local clergy man to vouch that it is in fact the spell you're casting or have them cast it if possible to remove any doubt. It takes verbal and I forget what the S is supposed to be off the top of my head but it'd be consistent to cast the spell.

Ask the barmaid "are you under the effect of any magic that prevents you from lying?" as the first question. Unless they somehow resisted, their answer would be yes, and that verifies it.

Thoughts on this.... House rule?

At the beginning of your turn in combat, you declare an offensive or defensive stance.
While offensive, you add your proficiency bonus to your attack rolls.
While defensive, you can add your proficiency bonus to your AC instead of your DEX mod.

Not really sure if I want to make it a Base rule, an available option for martials or those proficient with martial weapons and up, or what. Just an idea I had while shitting.

The Dodge action is already in the system, and for most martials switching out proficiency for Dex mod will do nothing; either they have low dex, so they'll be in heavy armour, or they have higher dex than their proficiency mod for most the game.

@Raving_Cute
Dex characters would never go to defensive stance, and defensive stance is useless for heavy armor characters as they don't add dex to AC

This would be simply be a buff for casters

The town's sexual assault tribunal takes your claim under advisement, and holds a similar proceeding for the barmaid, where you are subject to the same questions. They determine the barmaid was a rapist as well.

At dawn, they sentence both of you to exile from the town. The barmaid now requests that she be allowed to join your party.

In an ideal system, casting magic would come at the cost of your ability to interact mundanely. An example from another system that gets caster/martial balance right: Learning the Force makes it so you can't learn how to hack a computer, or repair a droid, because both take time.

With that in mind, you can let martials gain extra skill proficiencies.

Cure my withered leg, make the maiden love me, grant me a healthy son. Save me, succor me, make me wealthy... protect me! Protect me from mine enemies, protect me from the darkness, protect me from the crabs inside my belly, from the horselords, from the slavers, from the sellswords at my door. Protect me from the Silence. Godless? Why, I am the godliest man ever to raise sail! You serve one god, but I have served ten thousand. From Ib to Asshai, when men see my sails, they pray.
They pray to trees and golden idols and goat-headed abominations. False gods. And for that sin I kill them all. I spill their blood upon the sea and sow their screaming women with my seed. Their little gods cannot stop me, so plainly they are false gods. I am more devout than even you!

“That which is dead cannot die,” said Aeron fiercely. “For he who has tasted death once need never fear again. He was drowned, but he came forth stronger than before, with steel and fire.”

“Will you do the same, brother?” Euron asked. “I think not. I think if I drowned you, you’ll stay drowned. All gods are lies, but yours is laughable. A pale white thing in the likeness of a man, his limbs broken and swollen and his hair flipping in the water while fish nibble at his face. What fool would worship that?”

“He’s your god as well,” insisted the Damphair. “And when you die, he will judge you harshly, Crow’s Eye. You will spend eternity as a sea slug, crawling on your belly eating shit. If you do not fear to kill your own blood, slit my throat and be done with me. I’m weary of your mad boastings.”
It's so satisfying when Aeron puts him in his place.

Those are all achievable by just going straight Monk. It's the class with the least potential for multiclassing, so you're encouraged to just keep leveling within it. If you want a particularly Jackie thing going on, taking Tavern Brawler for proficiency in Improvised Weapons is what I'd say, but then you're sacrificing a stat up that you direly need for half a feat as the 1d4 unarmed strike is redundant.

All those things you want to be seem to come down to how you roleplay, not the mechanics you have available.

I'd say drop the STR to 13 and focus on DEX as your Humanoid damage stat. It'll scale better than STR as you won't be able to max either. You're delaying your ASI with the dip in barb, so you want to avoid too many odd stats. I'm assuming you're starting 1 level in barb first.

13 14 15 9 15 8 will let you get CON and WIS to 16 at 5, and you'll be able to max WIS then bring up DEX or grab a feat as you level. You basically don't use STR unless you're wildshaped, where you would still benefit from Athletics proficiency.

You're already adding a lot to an oath at level 3. Look at all the other paladin oaths, all they get at level 3 is channel divinity and their oath spells. I think that's more fair here since this oath is very niche in what it works on, but three additional features is too much. You should really get rid of that ability and not replace it. Other than that I really like what you've done with it

I really like the idea of restricting wizards to certain schools of magic, or limit them to learning / preparing a limited amount of spells not of their chosen school.

For bards I would want to experiment with the older style of spell prep where you have to itemise your spells for the day. (3 magic missiles, one shield, one counterspell etc)

@Stark_Naked
My DM had us get wounds after going to 0 in order to prevent 1 hp healing abuse. I would say to go with the same, perhaps with Exhaustion under half health.

You could also look at the Gritty rest rules in the DMG if you want to help prevent spells from solving up all those wounds, and make different wounds require a certain number of days or weeks to recover from.

I would say to save actual wounds for when somebody drops to 0 though. Going for half-max gets tricky.

viagrandad

@girlDog
I would say to require a specialist Wizard to know a certain number of spells from their school, and limit the spell level from their opposed schools to being half of their max.

So an Illusionist would have to know 1 illusion spell per level, and wouldn't be able to get basic Evocation, Necromancy, or Abjuration spells until level 3 when they're at second level for everything else.

That might be a bit drastic, but at the same time I think Wizards would survive.

Making bards go back to specifically allocated casting is an interesting idea, though I'm not sure how well it fits them. It would go well with the idea that they're mixing various types of magic together, so their 'divine' and 'arcane' spells needing to be prepared separately rather than done on the fly might work.

I never ran this, but it would probably ramp up the difficulty really quickly as dropping to 0 is basically a death wish at that point. Also, I would recommend adding these resurrection rules in as well.

If you really want to try and make it work in 5e, I would just say to ban the full casters and leave things more low-magic. That would still give you enough to work with and leave magic as an occasional tool rather than a constant problem solver.

From where they were in 3.5 maybe. Do you want to go back to them being able to lose any spell when attacked, not just concentration ones? Or having the DM select all of your spells for you? Or not being able to cast opposition school spells at all? Or not being able to cast while in armor at all? Because that's the baseline.

In 2e the entire balance of things were off, with the two biggest offenders imo being Gladiator and Bladesinger. In 3e it was CoDzilla. In 4e no one gives a shit. In 5e it's Lore Bard.

Wizard has consistently been in the top 5 of every edition however and people seem to get the most anal about it.

Unless 5e is a perfect game already, then I don't see what's wrong with taking the easier path here.

Wizards are totally balanced

I'm not saying this, I'm saying when you have one class that is boring "I attack" over and over, and one class that has tons of options and gets to do unique shit, the goal should be to make everyone more like tons-of-options-guy. If your baseline for balance is the nofun class and you nerf everyone to his level, all you've done is create a nofun game.

and how dare I try and fix them at all.

See above, I don't see how dragging fun classes down is a fix.

Unless 5e is a perfect game already, then I don't see what's wrong with taking the easier path here

Or unless you realize the Riot Games "nerf anything good" approach just turns everything into a snoozefest

@Boy_vs_Girl
To give a bit of context, those two characters pride themselves in their speed/teleporting ability. In the episode, they have an exchange where the two of them pull this trick on each other a few time, including the moving so fast you leave behind a double trick. In the after episode bit, they parody that bit to it's extreme. Say what you will about Bleach, and what you say is likely true, but they had at least some idea of how stupid things were getting in that story and made fun of themselves pretty well.

If you can play Eygon, play a paladin who rarely uses the helpful spells. Be a rude cock who ignores or scoffs at things like fate or higher purpose, but who has had his heart stolen by a woman who won't love him, but irrecoverably needs his protection. He should be oath of the Crown (to symbolize his devotion to Carim) or oath of Devotion (symbolic of his love and desire to protect his charge at all costs). If he is devoted to Carim, it is only to pursue his true interests, as Eygon in the game mocks the Ashen One's purpose and desires most to protect Irina.

But buffing the only attacks guy to having options for everything, so that everyone has options for everything makes it boring as well.

I'd rather have a number of classes that each excel at something different, then have one or two classes (see bards and wizards) get to do everything. It doesn't have to be all buff or all nerf; some guys who fantasy have many options could gain some, and some who have too many options (to the point it makes others obsolete) might need to lose some.

Eygon was not one to save others, he helped out those he thought were good enough to help him protect Irina. So anywhere from Lawful Neutral (obeying his personal code) to Neutral (staying out of conflict) or Neutral Good ( Protecting another with his life, whether she reciprocated or not). If Irina is dead, it makes more sense he would be an adventurer but in that case he would have sworn vengeance if she was murdered or broken his oaths if it was disease or fate. In that regard he'd probably be a pretty unhinged personality, swinging from outright aggression to depression. I'd say he has a lot of ways to start the character but him changing over time by interacting with people is a good way to seek new paths or ideas that could give him perspective. If Irina is alive he needs a reason to be away from her, whether that be she has sent him on a mission for her, the order of clerics/priests shes a part of has sent him on a mission, etc. Whatever it is she should interact with him as often as it is possible. Sort of like a Warlock's Patron, Irina is Eygon's muse, his purpose. (I still think its shit he just dies alone in her cell after the Dragonslayer, not even any last words nani the fuck)

Honestly I was toying with taking the idea of the battlemaster and just making spell pages with the traditions listed and their moves that the "battlemaster" learns.
