Talk:Brae Dwarf (5e Subrace)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

This race scored a 2 on the Musicus Meter (5e Guideline) the normal 5e dwarf race scored a 5 which would bring the total score to 7 i suggest adding more to this race to make it unique besides just the Disease Resilience.--Erlek Thunder weaver (talk | contribs | email) 05:31, 6 June 2018 (MDT)

Brae dwarf[edit]

Cost Racial Trait
1 Dexterity score increases by 1.
1 Disease Resilience.
2 Total.
The Musicus Meter undervalues advantage on broad categories of saving throw. The disease resilience should be worth 1. Marasmusine (talk) 06:09, 6 June 2018 (MDT)
I did not now i am sorry for making that mistake thank you.--Erlek Thunder weaver (talk | contribs | email) 06:21, 6 June 2018 (MDT)
Well, +2 is just shy of the hill dwarf's +2.5. Brae Hardiness is no +1 hit point per level, but diseases are always something to be concerned about when delving through a dank, dirty dungeon. Plus, I was kinda strapped for ideas that fit in with the theme I was going for and Brae Hardiness fit my idea perfectly. SirSprinkles (talk) 06:42, 6 June 2018 (MDT)
Maybe a way to make it less underpowered would be to add another minor ability onto it? Possibly an advantage to Investigation checks to search for something in a mess, whether the mess is a pile of objects or information scattered into a mess of letters or code. It might also be worth tacking onto the disease bit an advantage on saving throws made to resist an effect that gives the nausea condition, which while extremely niche does lend to them living in literal trash. Another idea might be to give them an ability called "One Man's Trash", which might either have to do with an ability to use broken items and tool sets with missing pieces, or with some kind of analogue to a Kender-like "Deep Pockets" ability. -- Smolcatgirl
