Welcome to D&D Wiki!

Welcome!

Hello Nuke The Earth, and welcome to D&D Wiki! I hope you are enjoying D&D Wiki and have been finding the information here useful. Before you start contributing, we recommend you make sure your user preferences match your preferences.

Questions

If you have any questions about a specific page please ask it on that page's talk page. If you have a D&D-related question, you can ask it on DnD Discussions. Everything relating to D&D Wiki's administration can be asked here. If you need to contact another user, please use their talk page.

Formatting

Syntax can be very difficult, and if you need help a good place to start is Help:Editing on Wikipedia (or even their Introduction page). This will explain basic wiki formatting and should provide quite a few useful links that explain more specific areas of wiki formatting. Help:Portal also provides detailed explanation of information important specifically to this community.

Community

A strong and welcoming community exists on D&D Wiki, and I'm sure you will find us friendly. To enable the community to function, a number of policies are in effect. Most importantly, we follow and expect you to follow Wikipedia's guidelines on civility and etiquette when discussing anything. As most work has multiple authors, please do not delete content without following our removal process. When posting a comment on a talk page, please ensure you sign your name with four tildes (~~~~) or by clicking on the signature icon (Signature icon.png). This will automatically produce your name and the date. I hope you come to enjoy D&D Wiki and the community. Welcome again, you are now a D&D Wikian. --SirSprinkles (talk) 04:52, 29 October 2019 (MDT)

I want to properly thank you for all the work you have put into preventing shadow buffs made across numerous different pages on the wiki. Thanks to your edits, many users can better enjoy the homebrew content the wiki has to offer. --Blobby383b (talk) 14:22, 26 October 2020 (MDT)

Administration

All aboard the S.S. Adminship!

Welcome to Adminship. You are now part of "The Face" of D&D Wiki. You have more burden on yourself now that you are an admin because users will be looking at you for editing help, knowledge about pages, etc. Make sure to familiarize yourself with Meta Pages to help address this burden. I recommend you take a look at Special:ListGroupRights if you have not already. Some of the new feature's uses follow: You can now delete pages, protect pages, rollback edits, block users and IP's, edit every page, patrol edits, and do a couple more minor things.

  • Deleting pages is normally done through Category:Candidates for Deletion. Anything with a good reason to be deleted on that page should be deleted. Other times pages should be deleted is in the case of vandalism, spam, or even when someone makes a page and after a few edits they either blank the page or replace it with something like "Please delete this". If this page consisted of close to just the preload it is fine to just delete it.
  • Protecting pages has quite a few different times when it should be used. Pages should be protected according to the author's wishes (with Template:Locked Page added to the top of the page in question), in case of conflict (with Template:Temp Locked Page added to the top of the page in question), in case of OGC published materials (with Template:OGL Top added to the top of the page in question and Template:OGL Bottom added to the bottom), or finally if the page is a vital part of D&D Wiki's organization. Also, if it deals with D&D Wiki's organization the page needs to be protected. For Example 3.5e Homebrew is protected from all non-sysop edits. No template needs to be added to pages if they are part of D&D Wiki's organization (even though some do exist like Template:Admin Locked Page)
  • Blocking a user or IP should be used with respect to policy. To block someone just click "block" (found on Recent Changes, the diff in question, the userpage, etc) and fill out the corresponding form. For a typical vandalism attack I normally block the user for two weeks. Certain things demand a longer block and others a shorter. No standards have been set for block lengths so use your best judgment.
  • Editing every page on D&D Wiki mostly means you can now edit the 5e SRD, 3.5e SRD and the MSRD. Feel free to edit them if inaccuracies are found. If interested further please look at their To-Do lists; I am sure your help will be appreciated.

Now that you are an admin I would say more burden is placed on you, but I really hope you enjoy being an admin and I hope you decide to stay around on D&D Wiki for a while more to come. Welcome to Adminship. Again, you're now part of "The Face" of D&D Wiki. --Green Dragon (talk) 04:44, 23 December 2020 (MST)

Unhappy User

This website steals stuff wow. blocked me from editing my own race. Well done thief. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 82.31.11.190 (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts.

Firstly, I would note that you have not once provided any proof that you are the user in question, as you have not logged in. Secondly, I would note that the page in question had been edited extensively after the original creator abandoned it, removing any claim that any user whatsoever would have on it. This is a public wiki, and everything in it is public domain. You do not own the page any more than you would own a patch of grass in a park. --Nuke The Earth (talk) 11:29, 26 January 2021 (MST)
I would like to corroborate what Nuke said above. This is a wiki, and you need to be prepared for other people editing the pages you create. At the bottom of every edit box, including the one I am currently typing this message into, there is a message that says "If you do not want your writing to be edited mercilessly and redistributed at will, then do not submit it here." If you truly do not want anyone else to edit "your" page, you can move it into your userspace, where other users are not allowed to edit, except for administrators to remove content that breaks sitewide rules. If you do not know how to do this, I or another user would be willing to help you or do it for you. Only users who are logged in are allowed to have userpages and userspaces, so you'd need to create an account or log in to your existing account, if you have one. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 12:24, 26 January 2021 (MST)

Overvamp Page

Seeing that the page exists for almost 3 years now, and no administor ever asked me to saperate it, you have no right to continue doing that. They asked me to put a warning and I did, 2 years ago. Case closed.

Yes, they are vastly overpowered, but this is the whole point. I purposely created them this way, and no one except you thinks the page should be saperated, or they would have said something. They has plenty of time to, seeing that the page reached its current balance level about a year after I created it. Just becaue you don't like the page, doesn't mean it doesn't belong in the wiki. Maiovez (talk) 17:38, 23 February 2021 (MST)

I disagree. As a member of the wiki's administration, I have a responsibility to ensure that the content of this wiki maintains a balanced and usable state. Your blatant hostility over the slightest change is a likely contributor for the fact that you've been mostly left alone for now, and that is also no excuse. I would advise you to read up on the wiki's Behavioral Policy. I would also advise you to read the wiki's Frequently Asked Questions page, particularly the subsection titled "How do I stop people from editing my creations?" I would remind you that the short answer is "You can't" and the long answer is "Put it on your user page" - something that I have been trying to impress upon you, and something you seem bound and determined to ignore. --Nuke The Earth (talk) 18:00, 23 February 2021 (MST)
It seems that the page was able to survive unnoticed with all its flaws for so long because the templates had repeatedly been removed, thus making it seem complete, which is behavior not tolerated on the wiki, where we are supposed to be curating and improving content as a community. Just because something was not touched for a long time does not mean it is infallible and complete. - - Yanied (talk) 18:30, 23 February 2021 (MST)

The page didn't go unnoticed; it was indeed approved by a couple of admins, after I set the LA per their request. Maiovez (talk) 02:46, 24 February 2021 (MST)

I see absolutely no evidence of that on the relevant talk page, or the page's history. --Nuke The Earth (talk) 10:08, 24 February 2021 (MST)

User Talk Pages

I already mentioned on a user's page they are fine and free to remove comments on their talk pages, including warnings. D&D Wiki has no policy against this, and by default resort to Wikipedia's Guide. You can see a discussion on the help page for user talk pages as well. If you wish to change this, then I would start a discussion on that help page's talk page. As a reminder, you are the face of the wiki and ask yourself if an edit war over a user's talk page is conducive to creating a positive experience and welcoming users. Cheers! Red Leg Leo (talk) 08:50, 23 April 2021 (MDT)

Understood, I only registered the content of your message after restoring it, and will refrain from doing so in the future. My apologies. --Nuke The Earth (talk) 21:14, 23 April 2021 (MDT)

Jumper Variant Deletion

I'm not sure if I'm doing this right for this subject, but I had a page deleted recently you. The page was Jumper, Variant. I was wondering 2 things. What wasn't done to it that it needed to be deleted. The only note was "expired deletion template", and I have no idea what that could mean. Secondly, is there any way to recover this information? One of my players was using this variation on the class and still needs it for the campaign. Even if I could just get the basic content, I will just make a word file if I need to.User:Kharmoria/Signature 13:56, 24 July 2021 (PST)

Expired deletion template means the work was left with the tag for deletion for 14 days or longer, which is the time limit imposed on pages that are deletion candidates. From what I see, that class was deleted as being a copy of the Jumper class.--Yanied (talk) 16:08, 24 July 2021 (MDT)

Okay, That makes sense. I did use that as a starting point, though I edited it pretty far from there, but whatever. Thank you for the help in recovering it! Hopefully I can post it again eventually with enough data to make it viable on the wiki. Kharmoria (talk) 01:24, 25 July 2021 (PST)

Ultra-Greatsword, 2nd Variant and Big Ballista Deletion

Hey, this two weapons' pages were deleted by you, I made them. Although, I won't complain about that, I just wanted to experiment creating big number-weapons for Large characters, but I would like to know "why" they were deleted. I don't care about those weapons, just want to learn how to create a balanced weapon and be able to contribute to dnd, by contributing dandwiki, in some way. Also, your "Rope dart" weapon is awesome, I'll be using it with a rogue bugbear with the "Sentinel" feat. It will, for sure, be fun. I wanted to thank you. --Character (talk) 14:08, 2 August 2021 (MDT)

I see the sword page and the other thing are deletion candidates, but they have yet to be deleted. The two of them were stamped with the tag of being redundant and not big enough improvements from other pages that already fill the niche. The ultra-greatsword page is also overpowered since it has extra things that make up for the 3d8-instead-of-4d6 damage die. The ballista, as I understand it, was a page made incorrectly with the idea of what a big crossbow is, not a ballista. And a ballista is plenty covered in base rules, making the "bigger" version seem very redundant with just more damage.
You can check out Equipment design for how to homebrew weapons better.--Yanied (talk) 14:17, 2 August 2021 (MDT)
I don't understand "is also overpowered since it has extra things that make up for the 3d8-instead-of-4d6 damage die", I don't exactly get what you mean here (sorry for my english level). But, thanks. I didn't know there was a page with guidelines. I'm looking forward to create another weapons, even if they get deleted afterwards (but next time I will think thoroughly). And actually, I was thinking in a ballista, not a crossbow, but whatever, it seems I didn't defined it as well as I thought (not even near), it'd better be deleted. --Character (talk) 16:22, 2 August 2021 (MDT)
A ballista is a large, immobile siege emplacement. Standard rules for it have it as dealing 3d10 damage and requiring 3 turns to load, aim, and fire, usually by assigning 3 characters to manage it. It does not fit well as a standard weapon, as standard weapons are meant to be wielded by a single adventurer and ported around. That is why that page was marked for deletion - it's too powerful with not enough drawbacks to be a standard weapon, and it already exists elsewhere in a more logical form.
As for the ultra-greatsword, if you want a weapon to deal greater than normal damage, your best bet is to make a magically enhanced weapon using the 5e Magic Weapon preload. I would advise looking through the equipment design page that Yanied linked earlier, as well as other homebrew guidelines, to get a better sense of what does and doesn't work well. --Nuke The Earth (talk) 19:06, 2 August 2021 (MDT)
Just a quick thing which hasn't been mentioned here is the Oversized (5e Variant Rule) page, which fits the "bigger crossbow" and "bigger sword" niches to a T already.--SwankyPants (talk) 19:14, 2 August 2021 (MDT)
In fact, an oversized crossbow is listed as one of the example weapons. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 01:23, 3 August 2021 (MDT)

deflated bust

If you want to delete one of my feats because it offends you, you have MY permission to delete it immediately. Redrum (talk)

To clarify, the subject manner is not the main reason it was deleted. The main reason it was deleted was stated on the page. If, however, you intend to make similar pages, you'd be doing both yourself and the wiki as a whole a favor in attempting to handle it in a more tasteful manner. --Nuke The Earth (talk) 22:01, 6 October 2021 (MDT)

Cuss Word Discovered

Hey, Nuke, I found a cuss word (🤬) in the index description of the Bud Knight (5e Class)! You may want to check that. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by MythicActions2000 (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts.

Found and resolved. The description can be edited directly from the page. --Nuke The Earth (talk) 10:56, 13 October 2021 (MDT)

Thanks. --User:MythicActions2000

Editing

Hey, Nuke. I was going around and trying to fix up some of the incomplete 5e creatures. I was wondering if you could look at some of the ones I edited to see if there okay now. Also, my Clown Trumpet (5e Trap) may need an April Fools tag. --User:MythicActions2000

Links

Hey, Nuke! Could you take a look at my Clown Trumpet (5e Trap) to see if it needs an April Fools tag? Also, can you give me a link here to a list of all blocked users ever if one such exists? --MythicActions2000(talk)

If you need help with refining homebrew items, I would suggest you visit the wiki's discord server and ask one of the members of the community there - an April Fools tag can be added without involving an administrator. As for a list of blocked users, one does exist, but I believe you'd need to be a moderator or administrator to actually view it, and I admit that I can't think of a reason why an average user would either need or want to see it. --Nuke The Earth (talk) 12:54, 15 October 2021 (MDT)

Watchlist Passages

Hey, Nuke. How can other users include writing in changes they make that appear on my watchlist? --MythicActions2000 (talk) 16:22, 15 October 2021 (MDT)

I'm afraid I don't quite understand, do you mean edit summaries? They can be input in the lower part of the editing window, just above the Save Changes button. --Nuke The Earth (talk) 14:26, 16 October 2021 (MDT)
Yes, I think that's it. Thanks. --MythicActions2000 (talk) 14:52, 16 October 2021 (MDT)
No problem. --Nuke The Earth (talk) 16:27, 16 October 2021 (MDT)
By the way, what happened to AcidRat12345? --MythicActions2000 (talk) 16:56, 16 October 2021 (MDT)
As stated on their talk page, AcidRat12345 was blocked for a period of one week. This block will expire some time within the next two days or so, after which time I personally hope they conduct themselves in a more appropriate manner. --Nuke The Earth (talk) 20:10, 16 October 2021 (MDT)
So they were blocked. --MythicActions2000 (talk) 21:13, 16 October 2021 (MDT)
Yes. This information is freely available on their talk page. --Nuke The Earth (talk) 07:23, 17 October 2021 (MDT)

Okay. --MythicActions2000 (talk) 07:58, 17 October 2021 (MDT)

Gaming

Hello, Nuke. I've heard recently there has been campaigns run on this wiki. How exactly did that work? You know, not being in physical form and all or what? Also, are campaigns still run on this wiki or not? --MythicActions2000 (talk) 16:16, 17 October 2021 (MDT)

I believe most community stuff has been moved to the wiki's discord server - you can find a link to it in the Community section on the left side of the page. --Nuke The Earth (talk) 17:29, 17 October 2021 (MDT)
But I saw something on your user page with a list of campaigns or something and the Nine Worlds one said "in progression". --MythicActions2000 (talk) 18:07, 17 October 2021 (MDT)
Ah, I see what you mean. Those are personal campaigns I've taken part in, that are not necessarily wiki-related - I just wanted to note them down, as a journal of sorts, to help me remember them. --Nuke The Earth (talk) 18:13, 17 October 2021 (MDT)

Okay. Thanks. --MythicActions2000 (talk) 18:19, 17 October 2021 (MDT)

Suggestion

Hello, Nuke. I hope I'm not bothering you or wasting your time, but I have something to ask. I'm taking part in a campaign today (non-wiki associated) and I'm looking for a class/subclass. I've been wanting to use a class that will allow me to use creatures from here and that I made up, preferably creatures with high CR. So I was wondering if you had a suggestion on classes/subclasses on this wiki that could use creatures like that by shapechanging or summoning them. Also, I've seen that anonymous users have been attacking my pages, so is it possible to protect those pages like your talk page is? --MythicActions2000 (talk) 21:49, 19 October 2021 (MDT)

Well, the best class I can think of for that purpose is the Druid, probably Circle of the Moon - shapechanging is their meat and potatoes, and they get spells too. I'm not sure if there are many summoner-type classes, but another way to manage it would be to build a necromancer of some sort, probably a Wizard who makes use of Animate Dead, which allows you to raise and maintain control of a rather significant swarm of undead at higher levels. It doesn't really give you many high-CR creatures, though - for that you'll want to look into other necromancy spells. Summon Undead is a good alternative to give you fewer, higher-quality minions, Danse Macabre is a higher-level option that does the same, and Create Undead allows you to summon ghouls instead of zombies or skeletons.
There may be other options on the wiki, but I confess I'm not familiar with most of the homebrew here, and any homebrew will probably need to be vetted by your DM anyway. I wish you luck in your new campaign. --Nuke The Earth (talk) 14:00, 20 October 2021 (MDT)
Thanks. --MythicActions2000 (talk) 14:31, 20 October 2021 (MDT)
Again; what about page protection as I stated above? --MythicActions2000 (talk) 17:50, 20 October 2021 (MDT)
My bad, completely blanked on that bit - overfocused on the class thing. It is indeed possible to protect pages from anonymous edits, simply request it on User talk:Admin listing the relevant pages, and an administrator will get to it shortly. --Nuke The Earth (talk) 17:59, 20 October 2021 (MDT)

Links

How do I make links to pages I have made (other than my home page, which I can make links to)? I'm sort of new to this site (even though I know all the basics of DND). Please put your answer on my own talk page.

God bless us.

Enduringone5 (talk)Enduringone5

There should be a button on your browser right above the text box that has two chains linked together as the icon. If you click that button and then type the title of the page into the top text box, and then the text you want the link to display in the bottom text box, then you should be able to automatically insert a link. For example, if I wanted to insert a link to my Archer, 2nd Variant class on text that said Archer, I would click on the link, type in "Archer, 2nd Variant (5e Class)" into the box that says "Target Page or Link," then type "Archer" into the box that says "Text to Display," then click insert. Here's what it would come out as: Archer. --MarshDASavage (talk) 09:50, 20 October 2021 (MDT)

Fake Username Nonsense

Nuke the Earth, I don't know where this whole nonsense about fake users came from, but I can inform you, truthfully, that I have never created any username other than Enduringone5. This whole rumor probably came from some other user trying to frame me, no offense to them.

I hope you believe me, and best wishes.

Enduringone5 (talk) 20:57, 20 October 2021 (MDT)Enduringone5

You had best not lie since we can see the page logs of you creating userpages for unregistered usernames.--Yanied (talk) 21:01, 20 October 2021 (MDT)
We can see the history of your talk page. Hawkone5 and Niceone5 are not registered users. Every time "they" commented on your talk page, it was done in the exact same edit as your response to them. In addition, Hawkone5's "user page"- a page for a nonexistent user- was created by you. Unless someone has been hacking your Wiki account and trying to frame you by sneakily linking to nonexistent users (I see no reason why anyone would want to do so), then you have been using nonexistent users to praise you to make you seem like a good wiki user. I have no idea why you're doing this, but it needs to stop. --MarshDASavage (talk) 21:11, 20 October 2021 (MDT)
MarshDASavage, I have seen that this may just be a misunderstanding. As Enduringone5 has stated on their talk page, they have siblings who know Enduringone5's password and may be using it and trying to have a stupid joke with the wiki. I already suggested them changing their password. --MythicActions2000 (talk) 17:00, 21 October 2021 (MDT)

Monkey Business

Hello, Nuke. I ask you to extend MonkeyBusiness's block time. I am pretty sure monkey is the one who made that anonymous user and attacked my user page to have revenge because I gave him a strict warning. --MythicActions2000 (talk) 17:32, 21 October 2021 (MDT)

Which anonymous user? If you're talking about this IP user, then it wasn't just you that they attacked. --MarshDASavage (talk) 17:35, 21 October 2021 (MDT)
I'm talking about the one who replaced my pages with "eeee". And yes, I believe theyg attacked Nuke The Earth and some other users. I ask for MonkeyBusiness's block time to be increased, as they are a likely candidate--my user pages were vandalized by them right after I gave him a strict warning. --MythicActions2000 (talk) 17:55, 21 October 2021 (MDT)
All they did under the username MonkeyBusiness666 was vandalize Nuke the Earth's talk page. I'm pretty sure that they're just one of the many accounts created to vandalize recently. MonkeyBusiness666 wasn't an actual account- just an account they used to access this talk page and attack it. It doesn't even matter if MonkeyBusiness and the IP are connected. Someone, or a group of people, is going around vandalizing in any way they can. MonkeyBusiness was just one of the many accounts created for the sole purpose of wreaking havoc on the wiki. Plus, even if MonkeyBusiness and the IP were the same person (which we have no way of verifying, by the way), there would be no purpose in extending the block. As I said, MonkeyBusiness was entirely created to vandalize. That account served its purpose. Unless they (for whatever reason) come back to the account a month from now, then there's no point extending the ban. By the way, no offense, but I don't think your warning did anything. You can't reason with vandals like this, and warnings are just fuel for the fire. Also, it's likely that they didn't even see it, as they got banned 15 hours before you issued your warning. By that point, they probably had abandoned that account.--MarshDASavage (talk) 18:27, 21 October 2021 (MDT)
The ban time can be extended or even made permanent should evidence arise that someone is abusing multiple accounts. This was the case with a recent user who had a traceable agenda. It is highly possible this is also all the work of a single user. We shall see.--Yanied (talk) 19:41, 21 October 2021 (MDT)

Stubs

If you are going to put stubs on my pages, please contact me first because I was likely to already be planning to make my stats better. --Javan9 (talk) 19:00, 22 October 2021 (MDT)

Hey, I'm the person stubbing your pages. If you plan on improving a page, replace it with a WIP tag. If you don't wanna do that, leave the tag until the page is actually improved. --SwankyPants (talk) 19:03, 22 October 2021 (MDT)
Okay you pants man, Mythicactions kept changing MY page. so stub his pages. --Javan9 (talk) 19:14, 22 October 2021 (MDT)
Javan9, your last comment is an example of disrespectful behavior that is not tolerated in these parts. Calling other users names because your mad about them stubbing your pages (anyway, SwankyPants was clearly only trying to improve the page, not doing it to be mean) is unacceptable and immature. I suggest for your sake you don't keep this up. Also, how am I changing your page/pages. And besides, this wiki is about collaborative page-building. No one here "owns" pages any more than they would own a patch of grass in a park. Even if I was editing pages you created, which I didn't as far as I see, that would be the whole point of homebrew wiki. If you want a creature, spell, weapon, etc. page on this wiki for your private use, I suggest you create/move the page to a title such as User:Javan9/(page name) and make sure you throw away all the 5e Breadcrumb junk. --MythicActions2000 (talk) 20:38, 22 October 2021 (MDT)

Edeting problems

Hello Nuke, you did that i cant edit my own page (Armor of Bahamut and Scales of Bahamut) anymore becouse i talking there, the problem is that the page editet from randoms like 20 times, i have reasons why i creat the Feat like i did so i dont want that they edit MY page all the times i hopfe for understanding (sorry when my english isnt the best) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by ShieldingPaladin7 (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts.

It isn't your page, though. If you do not want your writing to be edited mercilessly and redistributed at will, then do not submit it here. That is right below the edit summary box at the bottom of the page before you submit your edits. --Lavie (talk) 12:52, 29 October 2021 (MDT)
The feats are kind of blah, frankly. It would be more interesting and probably better for listing if it were one trait. That is just my suggestion, though. Otherwise, the ways the traits are seem to be unconventional for 5e standards of feats, hence the tags.--Yanied (talk) 13:02, 29 October 2021 (MDT)

I just want the permissions to edit the feat I CREATED again...--ShieldingPaladin7 (talk) 21:04, 29 October 2021 (MDT)

It should be unlocked once you and any other interested parties settle on how to bring the pages to a presentable quality that you won't be undoing like mad over.--Yanied (talk) 15:02, 29 October 2021 (MDT)

Thank you

I would like to thank you for helping catch that vandalism to my user page that I did not notice. Leíf (talk) 18:36, 24 November 2021 (MST)
