Coven of Cats is a D&D 5e compatible adventure that’s great for any age where you play as magical cats who have joined together to study the arcane arts and solve a mystery that’s plaguing the other cats in town.  It comes with everything you need to play, is wonderfully illustrated, and is purrfect for some cat-themed TTRPG fun!

Q: What level should this version of Warp Mind be?

SeriousBriI have taken this spell from Pathfinder 2e, where it is a level 7 spell (I think here are 10 levels there though), and converted it into a 5e spell. I think it is still around the correct power level for a 7th level spell, but just putting this here to get some alternative opinions. Warp Mind: ...

Q: How does the Way of Mercy monk's ability Physician's Touch work exactly?

biziclopOn the 3rd level Way of Mercy monks receive the Hand of Healing ability: Your mystical touch can mend wounds. As an action, you can spend 1 ki point to touch a creature and restore a number of hit points equal to a roll of your Martial Arts die + your Wisdom modifier. On the 6th level this is e...

Q: Nymph's Kiss as a first-level character

SonGuhunNymph's Kiss is a feat from the Book of Exalted Deeds that states, among other things: Starting with the level when you take this feat, you gain 1 extra skill point per level. If I take this feat on my first level, do I gain a single skill point, or do I gain 4 skill points? Using humans' extra...

I had an injury, then had to move, then was going to have to move again so never signed up again

@doppelgreener Moving is the worst.
Q: Is this revision of the level 2 Transmutation Wizard feature balanced?

Disdyakis triacontahedronI will soon be playing a wizard who I intend to become a transmutation wizard. However, I find the transmutation wizard sorely lacking in power. To remedy this, I have begun creating a revision. The first step in this revision is to replace the features granted at level 2 with the following: Tran...

@ThomasMarkov It is! I'm going to move again very soon but I'm staying in the same general location so signing up to this gym will be fine :D

Yes, I admit that the Ceremorphosis question was born out of sheer curiosity after watching BG3 stuff, but heck, Illithids are surprisingly well fleshed out

@Trish Just one question after reading the first quote... how do "most [tadpoles die]" and mind flayers each "produce one tadpole twice in their life"? Are mind flayers slowly dying out with each generation? Are there just other ways of creating tadpoles?

Now I'm tempted to write up my 4e setting lore for the origin of the worm-faced brain-munchers.

Q: Are there rules that treat Ceremorphosis as an illness or curable/resistable infliction?

TrishThe Forgotten Realms have vivid descriptions of Ceremorphosis since at least Fiend Folio (2003) for most species, but The Illithiad (1998) before that shows Ceremorphosis of a Roper into a Urophion and deeper insights into the Illithid lifecycle. But that's not where the story began, just the old...

@Trish Gygax theoretically got inspiration from Brian Lumley who wrote originally in the Lovecraft/Cthulhu mythos. Dragon #78 had a somewhat disappointing ecology article, and I think Dawn of the Overmind? was a 2e Illithid adventure.
@JohnP The Illithiad or whatever the book was I referenced was 2e too.
@Trish That one I confess to not reading at the time.
ayup, it was like... a whole sourcebook on Illithids! first full description of ceremorphosis as far as I can tell so far.
