Can a seasoned veteran spare a minute to evaluate my homebrew subclass?[edit]

Warlock Subclass and Pact Boon [Pact of the Cursed Warrior]

It is derived from a beyond level 20 campaign I played in!

Hi Green Dragon i have a question[edit]

Were do i find out how to make variant rules? I just got the ideer for a spell variant so if i could get a variant rule preload it would be really usefull.

I just got another question. How do i insert a link to my talk page or whatever it is? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Gaga (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts.

Depending on the edition of D&D you want to make a variant rule for, you might want to look at 5e Rules, 4e Rules, 3.5e Rules, 2.5e Rules, Pathfinder Rules, or D20 Modern Rules.
You can put a link to your userpage and talk page by putting "~~~~" at the end of your message. I put formatting tags right there to prevent it from turning into a signature, but it would normally become this after clicking "save": — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 11:10, 6 March 2021 (MST)

Class creating problem[edit]

Hello i have a problem making my Power caster 5e class. It's the spellcasting. I made it full but it isnt there. Will you fix it. (Gaga (talk) 13:02, 30 March 2021 (MDT))

Remove the (e.g. Wizard). These problems don’t require a site owner to fix them. --SwankyPants (talk) 13:04, 30 March 2021 (MDT)

Thanks. (i thought i had tried that but obviously i hadnt).(Gaga (talk) 13:11, 30 March 2021 (MDT))
Hi again. I have a problem about the extra columns if someone can help me. (Gaga (talk) 13:23, 30 March 2021 (MDT))

Get rid of the }} below class features. I’d advise moving these problems to the talk page for the relevant page instead of consistently sending GD more emails he really doesn’t need to see. --SwankyPants (talk) 13:25, 30 March 2021 (MDT)

Hi. What about 10th level spells[edit]

Hi i wanted to make a godlike being able of casting spells even more powerfull than Wish but when i made the spell there were one of those "this spell is unbalanced." and "please correct the spell level to one of the following 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9.". So could it be an option that somone made so that it were possible to create such a spell? (Gaga (talk) 04:52, 31 March 2021 (MDT))

From what page should the spell be listed at? {{5e Spell}} makes the spells available from the spell lists. If there is a 10th level spell, there is no list for it. Where do you want people to find the spell? --Green Dragon (talk) 06:58, 31 March 2021 (MDT)


It is the Bubble (5e Spell) and is a cleric/wizard spell and i think it should be added in some special list or something (possibly it could be added as a supllement to the wizard/cleric spell lists).(Gaga (talk) 09:48, 31 March 2021 (MDT))

Can i get to make a preload[edit]

I have a variant rule for spells but if you follow it the program says you must correct the spell level so can i make a preload for that(Gaga (talk) 09:24, 31 March 2021 (MDT))

There's no need to bring it up with the super-admin every time. Heres a preload I made for you to copy and use for any 10th level or higher spells, and heres the template that you probably shouldn't mess around with, but I'm sure you can figure it out if you need to change anything.--Ref3rence (talk) 09:58, 31 March 2021 (MDT)

Submissions[edit]

Hi! It's Lunar (lunarrust#9615). Do I have to be the author of a homebrew to submit it?

Well, if they don’t actually own the material, then no. Like, you can’t post official material from non-SRD sources, but if someone made a post on Homebrewery, it’s probably okay. --SwankyPants (talk) 20:40, 26 April 2021 (MDT)
Please read the bottom of the page you are editing. There is the information that:
You are also promising us that you wrote this yourself, or copied it from a public domain or similar free resource. Do not submit copyrighted work without permission!

Apothecary (5e Class)[edit]

Good day, BD, I'd like to formally ask if you could perhaps be able to verify and lock the Apothecary homebrew class I've made on this link: https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Apothecary_(5e_Class) Much love -Liebe

I have since handled this issue.--Blobby383b (talk) 15:44, 6 May 2021 (MDT)

Discord User Verification[edit]

Hi my name is RavenHeartedFox here on D&D Wiki and my discord username is RavenHeartedFox #9051 I am just looking to get verified here in order to use the D&D Wiki Discord server. Thank you —The preceding unsigned comment was added by RavenHeartedFox (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts.

You don't need to post it in multiple places; just once on the verification thread is fine. :) — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 20:38, 28 April 2021 (MDT)

Undeletable Category[edit]

Hi GD, I was wondering if there was any back-end trickery you or BD could do to get rid of the page Category:Legion Michael. It was supposed to have been deleted over a month ago, but I and the other admins have been unable to remove it because it is pending change propogation. It's not a huge deal but it's annoying to see it on my DPL and be unable to do anything about it. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 17:36, 30 April 2021 (MDT)

Blue Dragon has handled this. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 10:24, 1 May 2021 (MDT)

Hi, can you or BD give the same treatment to Category:Path of War Tank (5e Subclass) please? — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 15:23, 24 June 2021 (MDT)

Also, check Discord please. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 22:37, 30 June 2021 (MDT)

Unable to log in.[edit]

I am unable to log in to my dandwiki account. I am the creator of the paragon blood potion. but it says a number for the original contributor. Have I been removed? My Discord user name is THWolff. Please help.

Do you mean the Paragon Blood Potion (3.5e Equipment)? There is no user account associated with that page, and a user account on discord does not carry over to D&D Wiki. --Green Dragon (talk) 06:43, 11 May 2021 (MDT)

Prince Class edits[edit]

Hello. First, I'd like to thank you for your help in the Prince Class page. Second, all the edits made by 191.183.199.248 were actually made by me, but I wasn't at home at the time so I was not logged in. That's all. Thanks again for helping me with the page.

Samurai 5e[edit]

It's been a while since I made any changes to this class but playtesting has brought up some balance issues and I was wondering if I could get it unlocked to make the changes? Thanks! ----Ancalagon 26/05/2021 7:25pm EST

I have gone ahead and unlocked the samurai class, feel free to edit it/make changes to the class as you see fit. --Blobby383b (talk) 13:01, 29 May 2021 (MDT)

blockage[edit]

I have a (stupid) question. Is it possible to block all posts from a particular computer? The computer I'm on is a (communal) computer and an idiot posted something that got the IP address blocked. Redrum

Yes it is possible to block all homebrew edits as no matter what user or anon is editing from that computer, they all have the same IP. Because of this, and the fact that we block anons by their IP, if say several people were to post on the wiki from the same device and one gets banned, no one would be able to edit from that computer because of the shared IP address. This situation may cause some issues to appear like if an IP is banned and a user appeals the ban saying they don't know why they are banned or they didn't make an edit done by an anonymous user, admins have no way of confirming their statements because of the shared IP address.--Blobby383b (talk) 13:13, 29 May 2021 (MDT)

Fatal Error[edit]

Hi GD, I and several other users are getting "Fatal exception of type 'Error'" messages when we try to view any homebrew classes. I used Special:RandomInCategory to find about 10 random pages and got that error every time. This appears to be happening for 5e, 4e, and 3.5e base classes in all namespaces; 2.5e appears unaffected, as are special classes such as prestige classes. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 14:04, 4 July 2021 (MDT)

Blue Dragon has sorted this. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 15:12, 4 July 2021 (MDT)

glitch[edit]

Is there a problem with the site? An anonymous friend wants to post something and the CAPTCHA seems to be down. Redrum (talk)

Is the site no longer allowing the ability to post anonymously anymore? Redrum (talk)
No, anonymous users can still post and create pages. At least Recent Changes shows that this is possible. The Captcha was changed, is it not working at all for you? --Green Dragon (talk) 14:16, 16 July 2021 (MDT)
I don't know if it is us not knowing how to deal with it or the site but we are (or at least a friend is) having problems. I can post using my account but I do not want to post stuff for them if we can't figure it out. Redrum (talk)
Can you ask your friend what problems they are having, by describing it in more detail? I will be able to work with more precise information. --Green Dragon (talk) 09:57, 29 July 2021 (MDT)
My friend kinda lost interest in the site right after the last time I posted. The point of describing the problem might be a mote one. Redrum (talk)

dear green dragon[edit]

your wiki has been an important place in my life, i have spent a lot of time here and tried to join several times. my experiences have not always been pleasant but i keep coming back because it is the most welcoming place i know on the internet, even though some treat it as an exclusive club. i am hesitant to put my work here because of past experiences here (and its very confusing) but i want people to enjoy my work still. im not entirely sure where im going with this. im not a people person if you will, rather a recluse, i havent opened up to a person in years and im out of practice interacting with people. i was wondering if you could do a favor for me ,as a friend if youd like to think of it that way, could you look at my work? if you like it you can put it here on the wiki

sorry wrong link was here
thank you for the creation of my favorite internet location

Hetzi Dracon[edit]

Hi! Can you look at my new race and help me with the abilities and wording? Thanks in advance! Bowler1234 (talk) 19:04, 6 August 2021 (MDT)

I have locked the race against all IP edits. Whenever it is finished and you want it locked from all the edits, just let me know! --Green Dragon (talk) 10:23, 16 August 2021 (MDT)
So, this one guy is doing nothing but replacing the entire race with the words "Pelican ****". Is there any way I can edit in peace?--Bowler1234 (talk) 10:17, 23 September 2021 (MDT)

Teuful's Fireball[edit]

Can lock Teuful's fireball from all edits as a level 5 spell? I feel it is getting messed with when it is already complete.

I have locked the page as requested. Please remember to sign your posts by using the signature icon in the toolbox. --Green Dragon (talk) 11:12, 13 September 2021 (MDT)

Class Design Conflict[edit]

Hello! I’m currently in the middle of a discussion with another user in relation to the design of the Fire Bender class. You can see the entire discussion in the discussion tab of the class. We have gone back and forth, discussing why we think this design is better than that design, and so on. It’s come down to the point where this user believes that the class must have a subclass, no exceptions, whereas I believe that a subclass-like mechanic can be made, where the player chooses a subelement for their character, and based on the chosen subelement, they gain a particular expansion to the list of Basic/Advanced techniques that includes spells relating to that subelement. At this point, it seems to be a difference of opinion on how the class should be designed. I suggested that a class variant be made where the variant has subclasses, as this user prefers, but they say that this isn’t enough to justify a class variant.

I’m writing here to ask for some sort of guidance on this issue. I know that, if I choose to ignore this user and delete the “missing features” banners, they will simply keep adding them back. I can’t bring myself to agree with their design philosophy, and they can’t agree with mine. I don’t know how to handle this situation. Is there a way for you to intervene in some way? Can a class variant actually be made so that we both have a version of the class that we can accept? Am I actually in the wrong, and need to yield to this users wishes? WiserVisor (talk) 17:51, 18 September 2021 (PST)

I added {{Design Disclaimer}} to the page. Does this do justice to the class and your designs? --Green Dragon (talk) 11:02, 23 September 2021 (MDT)
That works for me! I just hope that the other user will be satisfied with this. Thank you for your help! WiserVisor (talk) 13:25, 23 September 2021 (MDT)

Vandal[edit]

Hi GD, you might have noticed that there's a persistent vandal who seems to have it out for me specifically. If not, look here for an example of his handiwork. He appears to be using a VPN in order to evade the many IP and account blocks we've issued. Is there a way to block this from the backend? — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 19:38, 25 September 2021 (MDT)

While I am not an admin, web designer, nor cyber-security expert, I figured I'd put in my two cents, as this particular flavor of vandalism makes enjoying this hobby difficult. The only way I see blocking this kind of thing would be to block all IP edits, and while IP editors are an important piece of this site's culture, I feel it may be time. The best way I can see a way to handle this kind of thing is as follows:
  • User submits account creation application (effectively what we already have, potentially with a section requesting the user's intent?). Application can be submitted 1/week/IP.
  • New lowest tier of adminship has the ability to sort through applications, and accepting an application automatically puts the Welcome Message spiel in their name. Not only would this cut down on similar cases of vandalism, but other users who might make an account with an unacceptable username.
  • An "account officiator", or whatever you might name this, who accepts a few too many vandals, whether through malice or negligence, has their privileges revoked for the sake of the wiki.
As I said, I'm no expert, and I'm not sure I could be much help actually setting up such a system, I'm just tired of the same unfunny joke mucking up my watchlist day after day, and I hope this helps.--Ref3rence (talk) 19:48, 26 September 2021 (MDT)
Blocking all IP edits sounds a bit ham-handed. It is rare but there are some helpful IPs. It also sort of goes contrary to how even vandal IPs are handled in general by Wikipedia standards (no permablocking unless for certain offences, eg.). The recent vandalism is only done by a handful of vandals, maybe only 1-3. If we could disable VPNs maybe this would be smooth, though a persistent person can certainly bypass VPN blocks.
As for the increased bureaucracy, this echoes Archive Of Our Own invitations. It might be manageable since we don't receive a ton of new users all the time like they do (and their wait time is like 28 days).--Yanied (talk) 13:48, 2 October 2021 (MDT)
Geodude, I hate to say this but if someone is determined (or CRAZY) enough to do something (like vandalizing pages), he, she, or they will find a way. I am glad to say that I wouldn't INTENTLY vandalize anything or try to piss anyone off. If you get pissed off at me for something, just write on my talk page to get over myself. Redrum (talk)
Geodude, is this still occurring? Can you provide me some links pointing me to the rolled back or deleted edits that the vandal has made? There may be something I can do. — Blue Dragon (talk) 12:58, 9 October 2021 (MDT)
E-11 Blaster Rifle (5e Equipment) was one, at least the first that came to mind. Fairly recent too. I could provide more. --SwankyPants (talk) 13:03, 9 October 2021 (MDT)
Here are a few. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 13:26, 9 October 2021 (MDT)
Great, thank you both. I'll look into it. — Blue Dragon (talk) 14:06, 9 October 2021 (MDT)
