We are talking the same Forgotten Realms where there's a kingdom that's been ruled by Aasimar since at least 2nd edition, aren't we? And where we had a freaking elfin version of Aasimar in Dragon magazine?

Don't forget there were originally Tabaxi in some other jungle region - Chult, I think? - before the Maztica setting was a thing. That's why there's the whole ta-BAX-ee/tah-BAHSH-ee thing in the lore.

Yuan-ti have been around for many editions, Purebloods have always been the "they walk amongst humanoids as secret agents" branch of the family, and they had PC writeups back in 3.5's Serpent Kingdoms.

My apologies I was mixing Pathfinder/3.5 up with 5e I should have checked 5e first. They cut a shit ton of the monk stuff down in 5e though so I'm not surprised. Regardless though depending on the situation a monk may in fact chose to simply walk instead of ride a horse. If he is pressed for time, such as delivering a message from his temple to the local lord then he would probably ride. If he is on a quest to find a hidden master to learn a new style then he might run/walk to strength his body further as well as performing his other training on the road.

A monk may use an artifact weapon if he needs to rid the lands of a great evil that is bringing about terror and carnage on his people.

But if he is simply risking his own life fighting the guardian of a dungeon he may take the increased risk to better himself further.

I think they are more interesting than Dragonborn in appearance and lore. I know most people would rather play Dragonborn though.

They're a race of Stone Age cultural level humanoid jaguars or leopards (depending on the region) native to the tropics. They were major players on Maztica, the Faerun South America, but I think they're also in... Chult? I don't know, the main continent's tropical jungle reason. They're peaceful hunter-gatherers, extremely fast - I think the math works out at being able to move roughly 160 feet in a turn at the cost of having no movement in the next turn.

Tritons, though, are the "merfolk with legs" native outsiders, so they actually ARE good for campaigns not set under the water.

It's a pair of revenants that used to be lovers before their order was decimated and their souls trapped and somewhat driven mad. While the case could be made that they are no longer in their original bodies and just happen to inhabit 2 dude corpses, it's pretty plain that they're two gay shieldbrothers. Which is cool, I guess.

Hey guys, making a legendary warrior NPC for the PC's to encounter and talk to and possibly fight in a test/challenge.

I was think that pretty much all the 20th level things aren't amazing, and for one person to go up against several, even if the players up against them were only level 11, they'd be cut down in short order. To that end, what do we think about giving 20th+ level characters legendary actions and resistances, ala Dragons?

Short answer? They're not catgirls, they're catfolk - D&D furries, basically. Pic related is essentially what they classically look like, in contrast to Pathfinder's catfolk at least having that semi-catgirl bestiary.

Odd thing is, as most game developers see it, furry-like races are okay, but beastgirl-like races are "too adult rated!"

More like, "beastgirl-like races are too weeaboo".

There's a time and a place for every fantasy creature, so people (read: this board's infest/a/tion) need to realize that animu monstergirl stuff does not fit in with every setting out there.

The way I see it, WotC has gotten so homogenized with their big-name properties leading to D&D and MtG bleeding so close together (to the point where the former even has unofficial setting guides for the latter), if we get Tabaxi they're probably just going to be Leonin or Nacatl.

With how many "human X whatevers" there've been in every D&D edition...

Like, I can only remember these, but I'm sure there were more - half-elves, half-orcs, half-dwarves (Dragonlance, DarkSun), half-gnomes (Dragonlance), half-kender (Dragonlance), tieflings, genasi, aasimar, planetouched, half-dragons, spellscales, etcetera...

Anyway, with all of these canon races, is a setting where humans were created by the Sex God and so they literally have the divine blessing of "can breed with any other race" magical realm or not?

Alright guys, I'll be honest and say that I wish Thri-Kreen were in this book. But I have two main problems with it. Firstly, Kreen aren't found on Faerun. Secondly (and far, far more importantly), I would prefer that psionics were finalized before releasing playable Kreen.

They would probably be mistrusted and avoided. But if it's just a single one walking into town like it's suppose to be there. I am thinking it would not have problems. If it's part of an adventuring group even more likely they would not be harassed.

Lizardfolk are also generally not hostile so they would probably be about the same as a dragonborn on the weirdness scale. (A bit spooky and odd. But I am not going to complain to big lizard man.)

My dad knew an Indonesian guy who got some magic water from some Naga once.
He was riding his bike through a forest on Java when he spotted a tree with a hollow full of water. He then announced to the local Naga that he was taking the water home to his village and filled a flask with it. He ended up giving the water to the village elder who used it in local medicines instead of well water.

That seems possible. One reason I suspect bullywugs or some of the other suggestions wouldn't have made the cut is too many monstrous monster races.

Hey guys. Looking to do a premade for a mixed group of people new and familiar to D&D. Out of the five premade options starting at level one (Lost Mine of Phandelver, Horde of the Dragon Queen, Out of the Abyss, Princes of the Apocalypse, and Curse of Strahd), which one do you recommend?

LMoP is for very new players, so I'd say skip that. Of the options you mentioned, I'd recommend Curse of Strahd if your party is okay with gothic horror and lots of undead. Otherwise Storm King's Thunder has been a fun (if lethal) ride so far.

Bladesong works only while not wearing armour.
Yes you use mage armour rituals to replace the breastplate, blowing a short rest resource and a spell slot to get that AC.

Fucks sake there's a Valour bard/Dragon Sorcerer multiclass that allows you to get just as much AC.

Also as an EK your magic is either utility, a ranged cantrip or ABJURATION spells.

You can wear light armor while bladesinging, anon.

And abjuration ward is nice, but for most of a Eldritch Knight's life it's not going to be giving you much HP since your spell slots are generally going to be low level. I'm not saying it's awful, I just don't think it's so good as to make blade singing's AC + speed + concentration advantages null and void.

I'd recommend Curse of Strahd if you're up to reading it thoroughly and think you can put on a good BBEG act. I've always found that new players and older players love RP heavy adventures, the best middle ground when players don't know how to combat or hex-crawl yet.
