How does one translate Charisma damage in 3.5 to 5e in an interesting way? Also thoughts on this Paeliryon demon I converted into 5e stats? I really try to stick to the "official" wording and formatting for monster abilities so any nitpicks would be very helpful.

if you want to build stronger robots, Tiny servants is a godsend. Create three and give them standing orders to throw the rocks you touch at enemies you attack, then cast magic stone. That's 3 bonus action attacks on your turn every turn. Later on when you get spell-storing item they can fire off the same spell multiple times a round. If you play an artificer/wizard mix and cast creation with a 6th level slot you can have your tiny servants man a cannon

Just play 3.5. It has all of that. I find it funny that people tend to fix a lot of issues of 5e by just rolling back to 3e rules, really makes you think about the "progress" WoTC made in the last 20 years.
Sure, a 5e-3.5 mix would be pretty cool, but I doubt wotc would go back to more "hardcore" mechanics.

Balance all classes around long rests. Don't fucking split some because you get retarded DM's who don't run the game properly. So many issues people have in 5e is because you get brain damaged DM's who only run 1-2 fights which causes class disparity issues.
Have a replenishment ability that is similar to getting resources back on short rest BECAUSE of retarded DM's who don't run the game properly (ex. getting ki points from short rest, warlock spell slots, arcane recovery. 1/day ability that gives you things back and balance accordingly to accommodate for this regarding long rest balance). This ENABLES dumbass DM's to run 1-2 fights if they want to, and it still has room for the 6-8 mediums
Let sorcerers be unique and have spell points, and give them more spells
FUCK multiclassing
As dumb as it is, give official OPTIONAL recommended rules for exploring. I have no idea how or what, but just put something so dumbasses can point to it
Have an official page that says explicitly what not to do - ex. don't fucking put crit fails in your game because it disproportionately affects classes

Does this ability make sense? I don't know if I have to clarify that you do the saving throw against the same DC or something.

I also want to add that you gain immunity to the source of the condition for a day, otherwise they can just reapply the condition, but I don't know if that's loading the ability too much, I could change damage for immunity if that too much.

I'm planning on for my next campaign not allowing feats to be taken at ASI's, but instead have them gained from some sort of alternate progression method, but I'm struggling to figure out one that works and doesnt feel too arbitrary. Was thinking a point system of some kind with the X points = feat, cost increasing with each feat gained, but not sure how those points should be doled out.
>inb4 enjoy every character taking all the OP feats
If I do this I'm also planning on canning the vanilla feat list and letting my players invent their own, that need to both fit their character and be vetted by me to not be bonkers, with the understanding that any cheese that slips through can be subject to reworking.

3.5, change the stupid mechanics for the must better new/old ones. Nerf spellcasters and spellcasting. Rebalance HLAs for use throughout the leveling experience. Prestige classes are "lock-in". You cannot start as a multi or dual class if the campaign starts prior to level 4 and you need to find an in game trainer that can teach you as well as have a reason for it outside of "lol stats".

Your problem is that you don't own a players handbook and have never played more than one(1) game of DnD 5e. If you owned the books you would have read the golden rule of flexibility and adaptability of DnD source material and if you'd ever played a few games you'd have run into GM fiat.

I know it is a difficult concept to comprehend, that the game actively advocates for you to alter it to your preference giving the players all the power and leaving the source material as only guidance and a frame on which to build but pen and paper tends to assume you aren't an ingrate.

>>75322559
>> AT 11th level, you can use your Channel Spirit to purify the impurities in a creatures soul, removing negative modifiers and dealing retribution damage. As an action, choose up to six creatures within 30ft of you. These creatures can immediately repeat a saving throw against the following conditions: charmed, frightened or possessed. They can choose to add your wisdom modifier to the roll. If a creature succeeds on the saving throw, they negative effect is removed and the creature that caused it suffers 3d8 radiant damage +1d8 for every successful saving throw after the first.

That is how I would word it. Seems like a meme ability.

Okay guys, pls help me out here. Working on an "untouchable" background for a wood elven society with strong taboos about disease and filth.

I'm thinking
Medicine and Survival proficiency (they're left to fend for themselves for the most part and they're the ones who do a lot of interacting with dead things)
Leatherworker's tool proficiency (should I offer thieves tools as an alternative, maybe?)
2 languages (the taboos lead to fear of outsiders, so the untouchables are often a point of contact for non-elves)

So slightly more stuff than most backgrounds but I think the social disadvantage will balance it. What do I come up with for gear, though, and for a feature? I'm a bit at a loss.
