It seems that, technically, yes this is mostly legal by RAW except for two things. If you try to argue from RAW then you have to be aware that the RAW does not feature many of the things that the RAI take for granted. Most notably, the RAW does not explicitly permit you to take actions, bonus actions, or cast spells outside of combat nor can you actually ...

Yes, as clarified Sorcerers at level 6 normally only have access up to level 3 spell slots, but can use 6 sorccery points to create a level 4 spell slot. Likewise, sorcerers at level 7 normally only have access up to level 4 spell slots, but can use 7 sorccery points to create a level 5 spell slot. As clarified by a tweet from Jeremy Crawford, DnD 5e's ...

Yes, that is correct. When customising a background (instead of choosing one of the existing ones), you need to ask your DM first. Most players will pick one of the example backgrounds.

Yes, if your DM is ok with you making a custom Background Everything you've listed looks good to me, but be wary that your DM might not allow custom backgrounds. Allowing players to create their own backgrounds is useful, and often fitting, but can sometimes serve to lessen the impact of a background on a character. Backgrounds in 5e are as supposed to be ...

Not necessarily a violation, but a concern, which I noticed thanks to Weaveworker89’s comment, that may affect this character’s ability to maintain this approach: Adventurers can take [...] a long rest to end the day. Long rests are what end an adventuring day. Without them, an adventuring day never ends, and thus a new day (including, e.g., a downtime ...

This violates RAW Original question used Crawford Tweets to justify the cheese, setting the precedent for tweets/sage advice as RAW. Sage Advice on 8 hours automatically triggering long rest, but only once per day. You'll note Mearls doesn't deny the automatic trigger and only clarifies that you get the benefits only once. This trigger makes avoiding long ...

The big issue with this seems to rely on being able to stockpile spell slots through short rests during downtime. Unfortunately, in the Resting rules (page 67 of the basic rules), it states: Adventurers can take short rests in the midst of an adventuring day and a long rest to end the day. This leads me to believe that RAW, characters cannot take short ...

No, Bards and Sorcerers are not different from other casters in 13th Age in this regard. Just like everyone else, they have to pick their spells for the day. The concept of "spontaneous casting" doesn't quite apply to 13th Age, as its spellcasting model is more akin to D&D 4e than 3e or Pathfinder. Spells are effectively powers that can be used at-will, ...

You can't wait to choose your favored class bonus, just like you can't put off feat selections or spending your skill points - or, for that matter, gaining your class features at your new level. So, when you take first level in sorcerer, you have to pick between a hit point, a skill point, or a cantrip known. If you could, though... I have a GM Blob (PFS ...

You Are Limited to Your Fastest Speed Each Round You were on the right track looking at page 190 of the PH, but you didn't read quite far enough. Using Different Speeds Whenever you switch, subtract the distance you've already moved from the new speed. The result determines how much farther you can move. If the result is 0 or less, you can't use the ...

You can move your normal rate during your turn because you always can and this can be broken up before and after the casting of the spell. This flying movement is additional movement using your bonus action (which implies that you must use your action to cast the spell). It must be taken as a block before or after the spell casting; it can't be split like ...
