View Full Version : D&D 5e/Next Grapple Monk Mechanic Thoughts

2018-08-08, 03:42 PM
I recently got an idea for a Monk Subclass that is grapple based. Probably not original but I think I'll homebrew it myself. I am unsure how to make one ability though. Essientially I want to make someone able to use dex to grapple. The two options I am debating are "You may use your dex modifier to determine your Athletics score instead of strength" and "when you make a roll to shove or grapple a creature you may make an acrobatics role". Also I just realize "you may add your dex modifier to your Athletics checks" may also be an option but I am unsure if it needs the extra push. What do you think is the best or most elegant option?
