Looks like any written source: http://www.sageadvice.eu/2016/04/26/book-of-shadows/ A wizard's spell book, another warlocks Book of Shadows, or a scoll all qualify. I could see a DM making one carved on a wall of dungeon, etc, and it would count RAW and RAI.

Per the PHB page 110, You can add other ritual spells to your Book of Shadows. When you find such a spell, you can add it to the book if the spell's level is equal to or less than half your warlock level (rounded up) and you can spare the time to transcribe the spell. The only written spell sources are scrolls, a Wizard's spell book, and a Ritual ...

1) The creature will be pushed into the wall, and its movement is stopped. Depending on the construction of the wall, it could be determined that subsequent attacks with Eldritch Blast will push the creature through the wall. 2) Is the creature friendly or hostile? Has the creature used their reaction yet? At the start, a medium or smaller creature is able ...

Repelling blast say "may" and "up to" if there something that would stop them from moving the full distance, it does. That means wall or character in the way would prevent movement. They will move until either they hit something they cannot pass, you can't push any more, or you chose to stop pushing. Grapple, RAW, does not stop the movement. A pit, RAW, ...

Yes, this should work. Disciple of Life says that Whenever you use a spell of 1st level or higher to restore hit points to a creature, the creature regains additional hit points equal to 2 + the spell’s level. Vampiric Touch is a spell of 1st level or higher, check. You are a creature, so if you use Vampiric Touch to restore your hit points, you ...

There are not currently any hard and fast rules for what makes a viable warlock patron. What we do know is that the following all qualify: immensely powerful fey (Titania, Oberron, Hyrsam, the Queen of Air and Darkness, the Prince of Frost) immensely powerful demons and devils (Baazka, Belaphoss, Eltab, Errtu, Gargauth, Lorcan, Malkzid, Wendonai) ...

RAW is unclear Pact of the Tome reads: Your patron gives you a grimoire called a Book of Shadows. When you gain this feature, choose three cantrips from any class’s spell list. While the book is on your person, you can cast those cantrips at will. They don’t count against your number of cantrips known. If you lose your Book of Shadows, you can ...

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 ...

Wizards are described as only being able to copy Wizard spells in the spellbook sidebar, and the available sources only appear to be one of four locations: A spell in another caster's spellbook A spell on a scroll A spell in your own spellbook (reduced cost) A spell you currently have prepared (reduced cost) Nevertheless, you're still restricted to ...

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 ...

Yes, but it is only incidental that they may do so and it is not required to cast warlock spells known as a ritual. Book of Ancient Secrets says: You can now inscribe magical rituals in your Book of Shadows. Choose two 1st-level spells that have the ritual tag from any class’s spell list (the two needn’t be from ...

While there are no rules in the 5th edition for tiny equipment, you could adapt the rule from the 3rd edition (Player's Handbook, v3.5, p. 123) that armor for a tiny humanoid costs half and weighs a tenth as much as regular armor. Once you've determined a price, the 5th edition crafting rules (Player's Handbook, p. 187) will allow a proficient smith to ...
