    posted a message on Creating private homebrew content from copyrighted material

    As long as you aren't attempting to publish the homebrew creation, then you won't run into issues. We only check submitted work for copyright.

    One more thing though, shouldn't I at least be able to make characters with my own private race? Not like for a campaign, just making them raw

     Correct - you will be able to make a character using the race (and recommend you do so to test that modifiers were added correctly, etc.). If it's not showing up in the builder, the first thing to check is if you have the "Will have subraces" check box ticked. Having that ticked but without any subraces means it wont show up (as races with subraces have ONLY the sub races show as selectable in the builder)

    *cough* http://forgottenrealms.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Books_(in-universe) *cough*

    I'm sure there are sites like Candlekeep that have even better lists of the types of tomes found in the Forgotten Realms as well, but the FR wiki was a little faster to find. :)

    Hi Ideaprophet,

    For the first issue, then Enable Content sharing needs to be enabled on the campaign (by someone with a Master Tier subscription). This will allow anyone within that campaign to see it within the character builder. The DM would need to use their own campaign link and "join" the campaign and would then be able to select the race in the builder.

    We have the ability to add proficiency as a trait, I know weapon proficiency are there (as we have them for Elves), and I'm 99% sure that the different tools are also there. Best way to figure out how they are added is to backwards engineer a race that has them (High Elf for weapons, or Dwarves for tools).

    What types of traits are you wanting to add? Whilst the homebrew tool doesn't have an infinite list of traits, every trait that is currently used elsewhere on the site are available in the homebrew editor.

     Is that a meme outside of the meme thread?  Shame on you! 
     The rules only apply to us peasants :(

    Quote from ClockworkLegend >>

    My wizard "collects a sample" from every creature they have killed as a macabre sort of kill counter (a hags tounge, drow eyes, a rival wizards knuckle bones)

     My Shadow Sorcerer does this in OotA campaign I'm in. Uses them as extra spell components for additional effects.

    posted a message on Discuss Listed Homebrew?

    Echoing what Subs said. If the rules were around homebrew needing to be balanced and logical... well it would be a lot quicker to view the homebrew listings. :P That being said, there is also some AMAZING homebrew that individuals have created, and we are hoping to be able to showcase some of the standout ones as well.

    We are going to be implementing a commenting system on homebrew soon (I believe it is going to be after we release Homebrew Subclasses, but should have more info from the team once it's ready to go). This will allow direct communication with the author.

    I'm liking the idea of being able to hide something from the listings (would need a way to unhide probably from your account settings), will pass that feedback on.

    posted a message on Moon Druid War Cleric - Potential Abuse?

    You'd need to be at least a 6th level Druid to do this, so a 7th level character minimum. At that point it's not overly powerful.

    No, only once per combat - the first time the Ranger is up in Initiative order.

    I may have some time on my holiday (if everyone could stop submitting homebrew, I'd have more than enough time to do these videos). :P

    Okay - something is 100% not working with that piece then - I'll shoot it across to the staff to take a look.

    Im wondering if you also create a new version of the subrace if it will allow linking. If that doesn't work, then it's 100% not working as it should and I'll need to start whipping Hartless more :P

    Quote from MoarPye >>

    Damnit, I knew I forgot something... My new conundrum now though is that I can't seem to edit it anymore. I can only make a new copy of the base Faun race, but then it loses the connection to the three original subraces, so I would have to redo all three of those from scratch.

    I'm not sure it's worth it just for Fey Ancestry.

     That doesn't sound like it's working correctly - if you create a new version, you should be able to link the existing subraces to the updated version of the Base race. Can you create the new version (the old version still remains listed), and then when you go to Subraces, does it allow you to link to a subrace in your collection?
