    Default The Misty Shadow's Absurd Amount of 5e Homebrew - PEACH

    Um... hi. This is my first time posting here in over 11 years, so I'm sorry if I'm using things wrongly.

    I love 5th edition's mechanics. I loved 4e, too, but 5e is just so much easier to mess around with. The problem is, I don't have a local gaming group - the nearest town is over 50kms away and my network doesn't handle using Roll20 at all. Seriously, I tried it for a month, but after averaging maybe 10-15 mins of actual ability to talk to the rest of the group and move my pieces per hour we were on there, they asked me to leave and I did so in justified shame.

    So, that leaves places like this to seek out critique on what I've got and to talk shop so I can figure out how to pull off further homebrewing projects.

    Now, this wouldn't normally be complicated, but I've run into an issue. Namely... I've got a lot of homebrew content. About 14 subclasses, and many, many more races. At a conservative count, I've done in excess of 70 races. As you can doubtlessly understand, I'm kind of worried about flooding the forum with them. So, before I start, I wanted to ask if anyone has any suggestions on how I can post this stuff here without making the page be covered entirely in threads of my own devising?

    What I'm currently thinking is to just use the racial divisions I already use in their google doc to make a mere 6 threads that should handle everything I have to throw at them and will throw at them in future.

    So there's actually something to look at beside my ignorance, here are the GDocs relevant to this topic:

    Sub-Classes: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...xb0FSRTY/edit#

    I'll start by stating the obvious - that's a LOT of homebrew. How long have you been working on all of this stuff?

    As for a forum-safe posting option, I'd see if you can post more than one race/post using spoiler tags and consolidate all of it. Having themed "expansion pack" posts like you've been doing works, but I'd at least collect links to them all and post in the Extended Signature thread so they're all in one forum-place since we're more likely to follow links to other GitP links than Homebrewery or Docs...

    I'll look through what's posted now and see if I notice anything glaringly problematic. I'm always curious about different folks' takes on the Shardmind, even if I like mine best .

    Thank you very much for the compliment! :D As for how long... gee, not sure. I don't think that it's been more than a year? As for the signature trick, thanks, I'll do that.

    New races in the Beastfolk thread: Draconians, of the Aurak, Baaz, Bozak, Kapak, Sivak, Flame, Frost, Lightning, Vapor and Venom breeds. Plus separate racial profiles for males & females of the Baaz, Kapak and Sivak breeds.

    Now, I want to eventually add the Adamaaz (Adamantine Draconian), Ferak (Iron Draconian) and Kobaaz (Cobalt Draconian) from 4e's Metallic Draconomicon, but that will require a rather generous amount of help to get off of the ground.

    Also, an alternative take on the Caliban has been posted in the Humanoids thread.
