Talk:Enigma (5e Class)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Your lore would suggest this is a race, but it's a class? You mention that all Enigmas can speak Celestial, Abyssal, etc, but you don't include that in the class features. From the look of the other features, it would seem like an Aasimar Paladin would work just fine and would give you a much more balanced build. Which also calls into question why nearly 100% of these features have to do with combat. Flight is really the only exploration based feature I see, and Comprehend Languages is the only social based feature (also "lesser beings"... eugh). But this all pales in comparison to the biggest flaw I see in this class: If all 10,000 Enigmas were created in times so long ago their origin nation has been forgotten, and all Enigmas know each other very well, why would there be a single Enigma below level 20? They've certainly been alive long enough, and were built to kick serious ass. Why would this be accessible at all to a player? --TheStoryEnthusiast (talk) 18:33, 6 July 2018 (MDT)

I would like to thank you for your feedback. I built this class for a campaign I DMed to be used as the main NPC/Guide for the players. I will correct the languages portion. It is also the main protagonist in a novel I am writing. The reason I went with class over race is because I intended for all the Enigma to be designed on different races, so having that races characteristics and attributed helps the lore. To answer why not all Enigma are level 20, when they are slain and return to the crystal form they revert back to lvl 1.
