I don't see anything wrong with how the page is being displayed. Can you be more specific? --Green Dragon (talk) 01:05, 24 August 2019 (MDT)
The page had comment tags around all the content; I removed them so that now the page displays normally. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 03:45, 24 August 2019 (MDT)

Heya, IDK if you care about this stuff but just in case, is it okay if I use your user page's setup for my user page? Here is what it'll look like. --Cosmos (talk) 08:55, 29 August 2019 (MDT)

Fine with me. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 09:31, 29 August 2019 (MDT)
Thanks! --Cosmos (talk) 11:04, 30 August 2019 (MDT)

Other Site

I know, I simply stated the other site so that neither side can cite me for plagiarizing my own work. It was a matter of covering my own rear in regards to the content I created and had put on both here and the other place.

I edited a newer message with no mention, but simply stated it's the same username so that Moderators would know it is me with my own work.

Taranil The God

I created a new God, Taranil, but it does not show anything I wrote. Can you please look into it, thanks.

-- Me0wFish (talk) 21:15, 30 August 2019 (MDT) Me0wFish

The task is done Meowfish, just remember to get rid of <-- and --> when creating a new deity, race, ect. as stuff between the lines doesn't show on the page itself once you saved your edit.--Blobby383b (talk) 21:21, 30 August 2019 (MDT)
Ok, thank you!

You scared the ever living

SHIT out of me dude lmao, but ya thanks for fixing that for me (in reference to my wip surged) on a side note seeing "this page has been deleted" scared the fuck out of me until i realized what was up -CmC

Cant make an account

Every time i try to create an account i get the same message. Theres a problem with my login session. I do not understand whats going on with that and its really frustrating me. I do the captcha and the puzzle so i cant figure out what the problem might be. Please help if possible.


You are getting this message consistently? Very strange. I'll forward this to Blue Dragon.
In the meantime, if you let me know your desired username and an email with which to privately contact you, I could create the account for you and email you a temporary password (with the expectation that you'd change the password after logging in). Would you like me to do this? — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 19:17, 3 September 2019 (MDT)
Absolutely, the desired username is PrimalCreator and the email is
The account is created. You should have gotten an email with a temporary random password. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 19:55, 3 September 2019 (MDT)

Moving A Page Back

Hey Geodude, sorry to ask, but could you move the Martial Adept (3.5e Alternate Class Feature) page back to Martial Adept? I only realized after I moved it that the original naming scheme was correct as noted by all the page names found after this point on the 3.5e Alternate Class Features page. --Blobby383b (talk) 20:07, 8 September 2019 (MDT)

Deletion of comments by a troll

Good day Geodude,
Having a hard time finding a deletion policy about removing comments from a internet Troll. Someone I know in the physical word has taken it upon themselves to clog up one of my pages with trolly behaviour using a burner account, and no real intent to contribute to the content. What is the policy on removing comments like that?--Aethim (talk) 09:05, 13 September 2019 (MDT)

Are you talking about Pit Fighter (5e Class)? If so, I’d hesitate to call that user a “troll” as they bring up legitimate issues with that class as far as I can tell. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 10:16, 13 September 2019 (MDT)
The first statement by the troll should say it all. But if you look at the screen name, timestamp of when the user was made and compare it to when the page was created, and that the account has not contributed to anything else you can see that it is meant for harassment. Not actually to give constructive input. I have also confirmed who the troll is in physical world, and their intent. Anyway I have requested a speedy delete, I would be more comfortable contributing to a resource site that has better tools to deal with harassment.--Aethim (talk) 12:26, 13 September 2019 (MDT)
The first comment is a bit uncalled for (particularly the last bit). Users who focus and talk only on one page/discussion are not totally unfamiliar on the wiki since many people may come and may fixate on one particular thing they like. The fact that this person continued the conversation seemingly in some earnest as far as I see on the talk page doesn't quite scream "troll," though maybe a bit ham-handed in trying to address what they felt were legitimate problems about the class. I have no idea what information you may have gotten on the individual in real life though. --Yanied (talk) 12:59, 13 September 2019 (MDT)
Hopefully Geodude doesn't mind, we have tools to deal with harassment, but it is hard to handle a situation when we aren't fully aware of what is happening. Earlier Geodude had to assume the article being "trolled" by your accounts. Can you also refrain from calling another user a troll? Remarks like this are not helpful. Could you explain what your issue is, and with whom, and what page? Admins could more properly help you if we understand things more. Please be patient as we all have lives too, and want to help as soon as we can.   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   13:05, 13 September 2019 (MDT)
My apologies if my last comment sounded like a slight at D&D Wiki, it wasn't. The situation is just getting frustrating. The person has since taken to other means to harass me, but on those platforms I can just block them and its all done. Eventually they will get bored and leave. I am just requesting the page be deleted since the wiki has no way of blocking users. And yes the page in question is Pit Fighter (5e Class) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Aethim (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts.
I don't see that user's comments as "harassment," but maybe there's context from another site that we're missing. It seems like the other user has acted mostly civilly throughout your interactions, as Yanied said above, so at present no action will be taken. If things deteriorate, then we will look at discipline, but right now there's not much we can do. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 15:09, 13 September 2019 (MDT)
I have responded on the talk page, and I hope that this should keep the discussion on topic and not be persomal for you anymore. --Green Dragon (talk) 02:20, 14 September 2019 (MDT)

Wiki Cookie

Choco chip cookie.jpg WikiCookie                            
I can not count the number of times where you have been very helpful to both me and other users by fixing page issues, deleting spam, and doing other thankless maintenance jobs yourself and with your bot. As such, I would like to properly thank you for always being such a solid support rock by giving you a cookie. Blobby383b (talk) 20:28, 10 October 2019 (MDT)


Hey, so I'm creating a Demon Lord and wanted to create a madness table for them like the other Demon Lords. How do I create a Table?-Dinomaster337 (talk) 08:00, 21 October 2019 (MDT)

Geodude probably will be able to help you out better with this but here's a page that you could try and start on to figure out what you need to do to make your table. --Cosmos (talk) 06:13, 22 October 2019 (MDT)
Thanks.-Dinomaster337 (talk) 07:00, 23 October 2019 (MDT)

Sorry I didn't reply to this; I usually either refer to Help:Table or copy-paste a table from another page and edit that to fit my needs. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 09:55, 25 October 2019 (MDT)

Thanks. I'm trying to copy and paste a table onto the page, but I'm struggling to make it work.-Dinomaster337 (talk) 07:00, 1 November 2019 (MDT)
The creature I'm referring to is Scylla. I'm not sure what's wrong, but maybe you could take a look.-Dinomaster337 (talk) 10:28, 2 November 2019 (MDT)
Part of your issue was that you were using pipes ( | ) inside a template. Since templates use that character to define parameters, the page thought you were defining the "class" parameter as part of the 5e creature template. If you need to use a pipe character inside a template, you can use {{!}} instead.
I've managed to get the table to appear, but I'm not sure why the template isn't alternating between a green highlight and no highlight, instead having no highlight on anything. I'll see if anyone in the Discord is able to help with that. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 15:10, 2 November 2019 (MDT)

5e Player-Character Preload

Hi, long time no see! Haven't really been active on Discord cause of parents, and just started getting back onto D&D Wiki (mainly for organizing details on my campaign though). Speaking of that, I wanted to ask about the 5e Player-Character Preload, in the italics near the top, below the character's name, it says 1st-level, but if a number greater than 3 is inputted into the |level= line of the page, it does not display the level (only "-level" instead of "20th-level" or something like that). Are you able to fix this, or find someone to fix this? I would originally go to the person who first made this, but that's Guy and he left, didn't he? So yeah. Thanks! --Cosmos (talk) 06:42, 24 October 2019 (MDT)

There's a spot for CR. Change 1 to whatever level you want the thing to be and it'll change the level.   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   07:20, 24 October 2019 (MDT)
I've already done that, and if it's a number above 3, it doesn't show. Here's an example. It says Medium humanoid (dwarf, mountain), chaotic neutral, -level barbarian instead of Medium humanoid (dwarf, mountain), chaotic neutral, 20th-level barbarian. --Cosmos (talk) 06:00, 25 October 2019 (MDT)
I've sorted this. You may need to click "refresh" at the top of the page to see the changes on your character. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 09:53, 25 October 2019 (MDT)
Thanks! --Cosmos (talk) 11:13, 25 October 2019 (MDT)
Wow, that was an interesting edit. Where'd you pick up or learn that editing knowledge?   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   21:05, 28 October 2019 (MDT)
The previous time I edited the creature template, I asked about that principle in the Fire Emblem wiki's Discord, and I applied the same principle here. It was helpful so that we no longer have to deal with annoying things like Category:Monstrositie Type or "swarm of Medium undeads." — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 22:48, 28 October 2019 (MDT)
How do you access the template anyways? I couldn't figure out how to so I could try and see what the problem was. --Cosmos (talk) 06:30, 30 October 2019 (MDT)
Here it is Cosmos Template:5e Creature but it is protected.
I'm still not sure what you did with the template. I see the edit, but just don't get it :p   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   07:54, 30 October 2019 (MDT)
I replaced the previous #ifeq function in the template with a #switch function. {{#switch: {{{cr}}}|1=1st|2=2nd|3=3rd|{{{cr}}}th}} This means: If field "cr" equals 1, output "1st". If cr is 2, output "2nd". If cr is 3, output "3rd". If cr is anything else, output the value for cr and add "th" to the end (eg, if cr is 4, output "4th"). — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 11:00, 30 October 2019 (MDT)
And whats does the ifreq function do? (sorry, I could Googling the answer too I suppose)   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   06:59, 31 October 2019 (MDT)
Thanks, BSFM. And wow, that's a dense page. --Cosmos (talk) 11:14, 31 October 2019 (MDT)

Some input

Hi, I'm rather new here, but I started making a few things a couple of days ago. I was wondering if you would mind taking a look at it, giving me a few tips as to what to change, what to add, and what to remove. I've applied for Discord verification, but that hasn't happened yet, so I'm contacting you here instead. Thanks in advance! Solomon (talk) 18:31, 4 November 2019 (MST)

Bot Building

Can you teach me how to make a bot to help out on this site? Flamestarter (talk) 20:42, 21 November 2019 (MST)Flamestarter

Lich Armor

Hello I don't think it's overpowered it's one AC more the mage armor witch is a 1st level spell and the only difference is it ueses Intelligence you putting it to a 5th or 6th level spell makes no since id at least put it to 2md or 3rd level —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Lord Loss (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts.

Even a difference of 1 AC makes a huge difference in 5e; please read Understanding Bounded Accuracy (5e Guideline). Not only is the base AC 1 higher, but it also uses the wizard's primary stat, Intelligence, instead of using Dexterity like mage armor which for the wizard is likely to be a secondary or tertiary stat. Having said that, I think 3rd level is a reasonable level to put the spell, so I've done that. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 09:55, 19 December 2019 (MST)

Silly Me

Silly me. I saw Hello Neighbor was free on the Epic Games Store and thought of you. I went to your Discord server, to find I was banned. Sent you a friend request, you've blocked me. I log in here, I have a "second warning." I suppose that's all my reward for keeping an old friend in mind. Whatever. Do what you guys want to do. I'm just here to drop off a link.

Merry Christmas: Yeah, it's in French. You can fix it yourself if you still don't have the game.

I'm New + 5e Homebrew Class is Incomplete

First off hello and sorry for the inconvenience; I'm new here, would you kindly point me to the "how to not be a dumb N00B" Page? (including the Article edit Rules)

Secoundly the homebrew Class Witch, Variant (5e Class) is Incomplete (Or I need mutch stronger glasses...), the Feature Witch Covenant is pointet out to be a integral part of the Witch, Variant (5e Class) jet litteraly everything it promisses to deliver is missing. Can I expand on this, or sould I inform the original author that a vital part seems to be missing?

Thak you for your time, — Leux (talk) 18:30, 03 Jan 2020 (GMT+0) Leux

You're right; that page does appear to be missing pieces. I've marked the class as incomplete. You can feel free to expand on it yourself. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 11:55, 3 January 2020 (MST)

Angels Tear

Thanks for the help. AriaVehemente (talk)


Hey, Geodude, do you mind looking at my Dialga page? I'd ask Yanied, but I think I asked him of too much already today. --Flamestarter (talk) 14:57, 26 January 2020 (MST)

Problematic Users

I am requesting a warning, if not outright block, of user Hentaiguy due to each of their “contributions” being incomprehensible, if not offensive, vandalism and spam. I had originally brought this up with Coaldstone, but he is offline at the moment. -Ref3rence (talk) 09:30, 10 February 2020 (MST)

You deleted my first creation saying “it doesn’t stand a snowballs chance in hell”. Why did you do that? Feb 20

My bad; I was cleaning up some very low-effort pages and didn't realize that your page didn't belong. The page you created should not have been deleted, and I'll restore it shortly. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 13:47, 20 February 2020 (MST)

Per Discord

This is mighty vague and doesn't help users/admins that may not use it. If I recall, details were going to be provided on wiki proper and not a two word entry "per discord". Red Leg Leo (talk) 08:12, 21 February 2020 (MST)

I've undeleted the page in question and re-deleted it with a better reason. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 10:11, 21 February 2020 (MST)
Awesome sauce! I just noticed the delete log and then then was looking for something that had an edit per discord as well, and was like um hopefully this don't start trending. Anyways, I for sure appreciate it. Red Leg Leo (talk) 11:04, 21 February 2020 (MST)


Hey Geo, is this template still being worked on? Also, your friend's campaign setting isn't on the WIP dpl but neither is it getting edited/transcribed. Red Leg Leo (talk) 07:53, 3 March 2020 (MST)

Apparently not; he seemed eager to put it on the wiki when I first brought it up but then he apparently changed his mind. I'm going to go ahead and speedily delete it since there's nothing there. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 13:28, 3 March 2020 (MST)

Dragon Names

So, I know this isn’t very important, but I want to design a dragon soon, but I need a name. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Me0wFish (talk)

Me0wFish, I guess the biggest thing that I can think of that would name a dragon would the dragon's appearance or abilities. Once you have those in mind, the name might just come to you. --Flamestarter (talk) 08:14, 27 April 2020 (MDT)

Adding to the discussion of this dragon, I have its name and stats, Azazog, The Black King, however, I just want to ask if you think it would be wise to increase stats beyond 30. It currently has all of its stats maxed out at 30, which I am considering changing, but since I now know how to alter the ability score modifier, I was wondering if I should increase stats beyond 30.

Me0wFish (talk)

Bot Usage

Thank goodness I am manually going through the delete candidates. I might be alone in this (since my ol' chap when out with a blazing guns of glory) but mass delete via a bot would have removed this article that has seen improvement and is almost complete. We've got a dozen admins and we all have the ability to review these articles to ensure they aren't being marked delete by trolls as well. I'll try to wrap these up in the next week or so though so ease up on that trigger finger homie. Red Leg Leo (talk) 12:23, 27 April 2020 (MDT)
Machine (5e Race) was something marked abandoned then proposed for the delete the same day. There's another article that really didn't need deleting that I fixed as well. I won't keep posting these for the sake of not beating a dead horse though :-p Red Leg Leo (talk) 12:43, 27 April 2020 (MDT)

Peer Review

Been awhile since I did anything on this site, but if you have the time I'd love a second pair of eyes on a subclass I'd tinkering with. Thank you.--Notlonelyloner (talk) 22:42, 27 May 2020 (MDT)

Balancing Help

Hey, I’m working on a campaign setting called Broadbarrel, one of the supplements is called Historical Firearms, and I’d like some help balancing Trixie’s Automaton, under the Unique Powdergunnes section, I don’t know what CR to give it and how balanced it is, so, if possible, I’d like you to tell me anything wrong with it and/or the challenge rating it deserves. Thank you! --Kanon (talk) 12:10, 24 June 2020 (MDT)

Inferno class help

Hey geodude it’s your friend alucard I came to you because you are good with these things when you get the time could you take a look at the Inferno class link on my main page I tried turning it from a full Spellcasting class to a half and it just didn’t work out if you or anyone can help me with this I thank you. --Alucarddragonborn (talk) 08:07, 25 June 2020 (MDT)

I fixed it for you, it’s because you capitalized it, you can’t capitalize things like that, it only works in lowercase. --Kanon (talk) 13:57, 25 June 2020 (MDT)

Thank you very much I was losing my mind I didn’t know what to do but thanks for the tip is there like a course on the wiki for people to look at I know it uses a coding language but it would be nice to know what things did what I’ve been on the wiki for a while but I trying to get an advanced knowledge. --Alucarddragonborn (talk) 21:54, 25 June 2020 (MDT)

On the Saiyan Fighter...

So I'm a huge munchkin and love making incredibly powerful characters, and I was wondering which of the variants are the most powerful? Sorry if this sounds dumb. Also, which of the subclasses do you recommend? They all sound cool and I cant decide. Thanks in advance! --Mushroomwizard (talk) 21:58, 10 July 2020 (MDT) Sorry I'm new and I realized this is the wrong page. Sorry.

I don't know which Saiyan Fighter class you are referring to, but talk to your DM before you use any of them. You should talk to your DM anyway before you use homebrew, but it's doubly important here because the Saiyan Fighter pages are notorious within our community for a lack of regard for balance. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 22:28, 10 July 2020 (MDT)

Figured I’d follow up on our previous section to ask if you have any good suggestions for other user-created systems on the wiki. I’m having some real issues tracking any down (might make a category if one doesn’t already exist and I can find a reliable way to track enough of them down). —Ref3rence (talk) 21:41, 4 August 2020 (MDT)
