This is likely unbalanced For your tiefling paladin, this is likely at least a +3 to AC, which, depending on their build, could give them 21 AC at level 4 (shield + chain mail from Paladin starting gear, +3 base CHA modifier.) This is quite powerful relative to other options, and will improve with any additional ASI. If this doesn't look that powerful to ...

Some of this is do-able in 5e, but some is not. If I understand your question correctly, you're asking if this highly specific character build can be made in D&D 5th edition. Do-able Some of this is possible, and your DM wil probably grant most requests: Backstory details are entirely fine in 5th edition. The Fullangr doesn't exist in D&D 5e, but ...

No, not in the slightest You're trying to make a D&D 5e character, and you want to play: A half dwarf / half giant This is not something that exists in D&D 5e by default, so you'd have to homebrew it who dual-wields giant-sized axes also not allowed, you can't dual wield two-handed weapons in 5e attached to magic item chains that leave his ...

One thought, allow them to be invisible, but at a low level they have not ability to interact with the world around them while invisible. For instance, they can walk though doors and walls,but cannot open doors. They can view everything around them, but cannot pick up things. This forces them to come out of invisibility then once fully visible (whole) they ...

The Bad News As others have pointed out, Invisible Stalker is a monster and the stat block it uses is just not viable for a PC. You could always start tweaking the different parts of it to try to get something balanced but chances are it would never really pan out and your player would still be far too strong, or so saddled with drawbacks that he can't have ...

Ask the player "why?" First step to solving these types of issues is asking why they want a thing. If the character wants to be invisible all the time just for the sake of that, just say no. If they like the idea of being able to attack from being hidden or that type of thing then you can help them out. The Gloomstalker Ranger is invisible in darkness to ...

I told him no right off the bat...But he's extremely insistent about it Just tell the player "no," again; you are allowed to do that as DM There are a number of reasons for this. An invisible stalker is an elemental; PCs are humanoids1 The CR of an invisible stalker is 6; it usually takes 2 or 3 PCs of level 6 to defeat an invisible stalker; the ...

It is DM Discretion But personally I lean towards no, because being a human is not listed as being a racial feature of being human. You retain the benefit of any features from your class, race, or other source and can use them, provided that your new form is physically capable of doing so. (the spell shapechange) so logically when you shapechange you ...

The base race is nearly as good as many official races even before assessing subraces I am going to attempt to evaluate this using the unofficial Detect Balance homebrew evaluation spreadsheet: ASI +1: 4 points Permanent Spacesuit: Radiant and cold resist, 5 points. AC 13 + Dex mod, 3 points. Hold breath (1 hour), 4 points (1 per 15 minutes). Lamp, 1 or 2 ...

It seems mostly OK, but it could probably use a few tweaks. First off, I rather like the theme on these guys. Secondly, this is fairly balanced overall, but some of the numbers are a bit high, and I think we could stand bringing a few things down by a small amount. For the base characteristics of the race, I think the Jetpack, the Bouncy Heads, and the ...

It is found in Volo's Guide to Monsters.

YES, most probably Tieflings have a human bloodline and Changelings have a human bloodline. So, I have tried to answer your question as far as I can, taking information from D&D 5e sources including Eberron: Rising from the Last War (ERLW), the Player's Handbook (PHB), Xanathar's Guide to Everything (XGE), Mordekainen's Tome of Foes (MTF) and the ...

Yes While this is not established in 5E, old lore often carries through from older editions if it is not superseded by new lore. So, the only book I'm aware of that talks about Changeling reproduction is the 3.5E book Races of Eberron. From there, we get the following... Two changeling parents breed a changeling child. A changeling and a humanoid can ...
