and i think it would depend on the type of code. i see no reason it would be harder to read a simple substitution cipher of a foreign language than a foreign language. it's weird unless it is tapping in to some collective consciousness to translate it doesn't make complete sense unless something other than the writing itself carries the meaning

This works but it requires your bonus action and action The Thirsting Blade Invocation states: You can attack with your pact weapon twice, instead of once, whenever you take the Attack action on your turn. The Thirsting Blade Invocation requires you to take the Attack action. Simply making an attack does not count as doing this, as discussed in the ...

I created a witch character in the current game I'm in. I actually just re-skinned a Lore Bard. Like her inspirations are little poppets she's made of the party members that she whispers to, giving them boosts. Her Song of Rest, is actually her making the group a stout tea that has healing properties. Took Ritual Caster feat, so I could have a familiar (he's ...

Yes, you can Answering the question asked in the body, the text of the Hex spell does not require that the target be an enemy: You place a curse on a creature that you can see within range so you can target any creature that you can see. The text of Relentless Hex simply requires: As a bonus action, you can magically teleport up to 30 feet to an ...

Out of the Abyss Is an adventure module specifically about demon lords (fiends) invading the material plane.

Try chapter 1 of Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes The first chapter of Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes for 5e is all about the Blood War, which is an eternal war between devils and demons. The chapter includes a lot of lore about that conflict, which is the major role that fiends serve in the Forgotten Realms lore. However, since you haven't yet even got the Player'...

It is likely that only one familiar would be able to attack There are a few things that point to this being the case: The Pact of the Chain feature uses the singular The Pact of the Chain feature states: [...] Additionally, when you take the Attack action, you can forgo one of your own attacks to allow your familiar to use its reaction to make one ...

When you attack with [the weapon chosen with Hex Warrior], you can use your Charisma modifier, instead of Strength or Dexterity, for the attack and damage rolls. [...] this benefit extends to every pact weapon (Xanathar’s Guide to Everything pg. 55-56, emphasis mine) It says “you can use,” not “you must use” or just “you use,” so you have the choice to not ...

Yes. The following spells [fireball, in this case] are added to the warlock spell list for you. That's a plain statement that this warlock can cast fireball, once they are capable of casting third level spells. Spell level restrictions can be overcome when using a scroll with a successful spellcasting check at DC 10 + the spell's level, and so for ...

I would say that by RAW, the answer is no, the curse would not prevent the use of telepathic communication, from the Awakened Mind feature or otherwise. Of the 3 curses imposed upon the Kenku, there are 2 to consider: the spark of creativity was torn from their souls their master took away their voices The first of the above curses would basically ...

The question touches a grey area. Because the answer primarily depends on what one actually means by the word "speaking". So, a ultimate DM ruling is paramount here. TL;DR: One can "speak" in his mind, "hearing" his own voice in his head, without actually moving his mouth of making any sound, and thus telepathy counts as "speaking". The relevant Raw texts:...

Replying to a Warlock Awakened Mind has been clarified in Sage Advice (page 6) to apply only in one direction. A warlock talking to a Kenku using Awakened Mind doesn't allow the Kenku to reply except aloud using mimicry. Does the warlock’s Awakened Mind feature allow two-way telepathic communication? The feature is intended to provide one-way ...

It's two-way. The description of the Great Old One warlock's Awakened Mind feature was originally ambiguously phrased (PHB, p. 110; emphasis mine): You can communicate telepathically with any creature you can see within 30 feet of you. "Communication with" a creature suggests that you might be able to communicate your thoughts to it, and that it might ...

Yes, it can The imp's stat block is clear in how the shapechanger trait mechanically works. It states in the PHB (p. 277 with my emphasis): The imp can use its action to polymorph into a beast form that resembles a rat (speed 20 ft.), a raven (20 ft., fly 60 ft.), or a spider (20 ft., climb 20 ft.), or back into its true form. Its statistics are the same ...

My reading of all three abilities comes to the conclusion that while your aasimar transformation is active, one eldritch blast attack would have extra damage equal to your level + your Charisma mod, and the rest would just have your Charisma mod (from Agonizing Blast). The Protector Aasimar's Radiant Soul trait (VGtM, p. 105) says: [...] once on each of ...

No The description of the Celestial Warlock's Radiant Soul feature says: Starting at 6th level, your link to the Celestial allows you to serve as a conduit for radiant energy. You have resistance to radiant damage, and when you cast a spell that deals radiant or fire damage, you add your Charisma modifier to one radiant or fire damage roll of ...

No Geas is a 5th level spell that has a duration of 30 days. It has a casting time of 1 minute and a range of 60 feet, and has a verbal component. Largely, this means that in order to be affected by Geas, a creature has to be either willing or restrained/helpless. At 9th level, a wizard could cast the spell once per day, and potentially have up to 30 ...

Yes Firstly, from this answer, we know that we can use Awakened Mind to convey the suggestion if need be. You suggest a course of activity (limited to a sentence or two) and magically influence a creature you can see within range that can hear and understand you. Secondly, as I have highlighted in a snippet of the suggestion spell above, suggestion ...

Fairly balanced on average, but there are issues This patron is fairly balanced overall, but some of the individual features are a bit under or overpowered for their level. The theme of the class is awesome and most of it is really well thought out. Lets go through the features: Bonus Cantrip The Celestial patron grants two cantrips (light and sacred ...

The Charisma Bonus probably only applies once; but the feature is worded poorly This kind of interaction should be adjudicated by the DMG's rules for Combining Game Effects: Different game features can affect a target at the same time. But when two or more game features have the same name, only the effects of one of them-the most potent one-apply while ...

You cannot do this The Mystic Arcanum feature states: Choose one Xth-level spell from the warlock spell list as this arcanum. You can cast your arcanum spell once without expending a spell slot. You must finish a long rest before you can do so again. This requires to actually choose a spell of a certain level from your list, unfortunately the upcast ...

No, they can't; only known spells can be scribed into scrolls. The optional rules on scribing a spell scroll state (Xanathar's Guide to Everything, p. 133; emphasis mine): Scribing a spell scroll takes an amount of time and money related to the level of the spell the character wants to scribe, as shown in the Spell Scroll Costs table. In addition, the ...

This sub class needs some work before it is balanced with the others There are a number of issues with this, but I'd say it's simply too strong, and I think some of the other issues needs to be addressed. I compare to "Dark One’s Blessing" because a lot of the features are of similar mechanics. Impelling Shroud This is strong. Compare it to Dark One’s ...

Eldritch blast is a spell-like ability, which means it cannot be cast while the warlock is within the antimagic field, and the beam itself is suppressed within the field, so it cannot hit a target within the field. As normal, the blast is not blocked by the field, so a warlock outside the field could cast eldritch blast through the field to get a target on ...
