'Note' is used very liberally throughout the page, and should be reexamined for impact. These notes can likely be restructured to flow naturally from one point to another.

Fifth (5e Race) Wording does not follow standards, see the 5e Race Design Guide.
Firebane (5e Equipment) Energy absorption part 2 is very confusing, and would benefit from clarification/a rewrite. "you can roll on attack on a spell" what does this mean? Is "on a hit" supposed to be "on a successful save"?
Five Finger Death Punch (5e Subclass) Reads through very roughly.
Flora Colossus (5e Race) A number of capitalization errors throughout. Consult the Help:When to Italicize and Capitalize for help.
Forge Master (5e Class) Grammar
Form Thief (5e Subclass) Everything past the actual features here makes no sense.

Katana Master (5e Feat) What is a Katana in d&d terms? There's no official katana. If this is a feat made specifically to be used with a homebrew katana, you must provide a link to the object, otherwise you must write the feat based on equipment that can be encountered on the core rules.

Key of the King's Law, Bab-ilu (5e Equipment) Spelling and grammar need improving.

Lord (Fire Emblem) (5e Class) Features like Subdue, Awakening, Lordly Strike, Pomp and Circumstance, and Failnaught are written very strangely. Most on this page could benefit from a rewrite.
Lost Dragon (5e Class) The description specifically describes a race. If this is intended to be a race-exclusive class, or a hybrid of race and class, it should be treated primarily as a race and include details like racial traits. Other homebrew examples of this include barbed devil and goron. If it doesn't make any sense to multiclass into "lost dragon," then it probably shouldn't be primarily a class.

Class features and race features should generally be written from a second person perspective ("you"), but many of this class's features use a third-person perspective ("the Dragon") or switch between them. Many words are capitalized in an odd way. Even "For" is capitalized in the middle of a sentence. Class and race names are common nouns and usually should not be capitalized. More on this subject can be found in Help:When to Italicize and Capitalize.

Lowly Peasant (5e Class) The wording is jumbled in some places.
Lucario, 2nd Variant (5e Race) Capitalization and italization. Consult the Help:When to Italicize and Capitalize.

Magi (5e Race Variant) Many traits are poorly worded.
Masked (5e Race) A number of spelling/grammatical/capitalization/wording errors throughout. Consult the Help:When to Italicize and Capitalize for help. The traits need to be mechanically worded correctly as they are often vague, have excessive waffle or are written casually. Race names, alignments shouldn't be capitalized for example.
Masked Warrior (5e Class) Several dozen standardization problems with most of the features. Much of the content could also be much more condensed or easier to read.

Additionally, the epic levels both need to stop using a 3.5 table and use a proper variant rule for handling levels higher than 20th.

Masks of Forms (5e Equipment) keywords like Brave, Dwarven Toughness, and other racial traits need written out. Players shouldn't be expected to research or refer to other pages to know what their stuff does.
Matter Thing (5e Race) A number of spelling/grammatical/capitalization/wording errors throughout. Consult the Help:When to Italicize and Capitalize for help. The traits need to be mechanically worded correctly as they are often vague.

Nullifer (5e Class) This class has significant problems with capitalization and punctuation found throughout the class. Besides that, the class has various other minor grammatical errors scattered about.
Old One's Gauntlets (5e Equipment) The wording of this item is a mess. The item's properties don't mention how they can be activated, don't mention a range, and since it isn't mentioned you can use the item on creatures you can not see. In addition, there is round counting, usage of the "per duration" wording instead of standard magical item recharge wording, and a variety of other grammatical problems.
Origamist ( School Life) Capitalization, and many run-ons throughout
Osmosian (5e Race) Traits are exceedingly wordy and need to be cut down as well as simplified. Other glaring wording errors throughout.

Overhauled Prestige Classes (5e Variant Rule) The creator of this page requests a grammar cleanup.
Owl Kin (5e Race) This page needs some grammatical touch-ups, mainly involving punctuation and sentence structure.

Pac-Man (5e Race) The language needs to be tightened up a bit so it's not so casual and abridged from proper 5e terminology.
Palademon (5e Race) There are capitalization errors and spelling problems. I fixed some but not all. Consult the Help:When to Italicize and Capitalize for help.
Parental Aspect tree (5e Feat) Even just throwing a few commas here-and-there would go a long way toward making this readable.
Pet Lover (5e Background) Various grammar and spelling issues.
Phaseling (5e Class) The last line of the last class feature does not have a clear meaning, if any. There is also an issue with the Pocket Portal feature, as it's diameter is defined as being equal to the phaseling's level, but does not specify which unit (feet, squares, miles) is used for the conversion. Even if the unit is feet, however, which it most likely is, this is in no way a small portal, as the feature would suggest. Also, the level at which a feature is gained should be placed at the beginning of that feature's description, not halfway through.
Phoenix Kin (5e Race) Traits are poorly worded.
Pirate Hunter (5e Class) several uses of "per long rest" wording

Raesokeran Mustilus (5e Race) "reptiles", "feat effects" are not 5e terms. "once per long rest" wording should not be used. Mustilus and Rodentus are not a first party language, explain it(script/ what it sounds like, etc) or use the first party languages. Incorrect capitalization throughout, consult the Help:When to Italicize and Capitalize for help. Traits are vague and incorrectly worded throughout and should use the first party's wording.
Raesokeran Rodentus (5e Race) A number of spelling/grammatical/capitalization/italicization errors throughout.

Sentient Snake (5e Race) Things like natural armor should use standard 5e wording
Shade Maiden (5e Class) A lot of the wording of this class needs to be cleaned up. This class has several grammatical errors ranging from spelling problems to capitalization issues.

Shadow Sovereign (5e Class) A majority of this page is awkwardly written.
