Thorough Review and 5e conversion DRAFT

Postby Coronoides » Sun Oct 22, 2017 9:18 pm

It will probably come as no surprise that I have been working on a long form review and 5e conversion of Council of Wryms. I have completed enough for people to read the review, and make PCs. I am aware that Marsupialmancer has already completed a 5e conversion. His work and mine have different features, for example mine does not include Chromatic dragon PCs his does, in mine dragon PCs can be used in other settings (at level 6 and above!). Want to play a dragon in Forgotten Realms or Mystara? Now you can and be at the same power as other PCs of the same level! In the end I assume people will use one or the other then take a few rules from the other one.
Here is a link to my pdf.

Challenge of Wing and Claw!

Postby Coronoides » Mon Oct 30, 2017 12:47 am

I’ve fleshed out the Challenge of Wing and Claw a bit. The new version (not in linked document yet) reads:

“For the Challenge of Wing and Claw assume that aerial combat preclude the precise killing blow and unless the opponent is killed outright by massive damage (Instant Death PHB197) a blow that reduces an opponent to zero HP always causes unconsciousness rather than death. Of coarse the next issue for the looser is falling damage, which should be adjudicated like any other damage done to a character on 0 hit points (PHB197). Dragons low on hit points often descend closer to the ground as a precaution or even land to yield to their opponent. There are always Custodian acolytes on the ground to provide Spare the Dying (PHB277) to prevent death. An acolyte typically arrives 1d4-1 rounds after the crash (0 indicating one the same round before the fallen dragon’s next turn). The Custodians usually will not provide any further healing, to do so would jeopardise their reputation for neutrality in clan affairs.”

What do you think?

New Lordling Background

Postby Coronoides » Sun Nov 05, 2017 8:36 am

Lordling
You are the offspring of a Dragon Lord and great things are expected of you. Your parentage does not grant any legally defined benefits, custom usually ensures others treat you politely and expect you to take on responsibilities usually accorded to those of greater rank. You are hatched within the domain of your clan, taught its proud history, its traditions, and are expected to defend the clan domain.
Skill Proficiencies: Intimidation and History.
Languages: the language of your dragon family (for PC’s Metallic), and High Draconic.
Equipment: a hereditary pendant, bracer, horn pennant or other worn decoration that prominently features the claw -rune of your clan. You are expected to proudly wear this while in public. While wearing this item anyone making a DC15 History check can identify you as a lordling of your clan. The materials this item are made of are worth 200gp but it is against the laws of your clan to sell it.
Clan
Rather than rolling on a random table players should choose which dragon clan they were born into and therefore who their parent is.
Feature: Great Expectations
Within your clan, vassals tend to hold you in high regard and assume you have the right to be wherever you are within your clan’s domain. Dragons of your clan will offer you hospitality for long periods, even years. While you are a Wrymling other dragons of your clan offer you aid as an extended family, Occasionally, usually about once a year, you may call on your parent, in person, for additional coin or resources to perform a mission. These resources are usually equal in value to the recommended starting equipment for your level (DMG38). You begin with the first rank within the Clan faction, however you are expected to fulfill the responsibilities of one rank higher than your current rank but without the benefits of the higher rank.

New version now available (see link 1st post). Incorporates evidence from Volo's Guide to Monsters and the Tortle Package into the hidden math of the race design. Also includes a few bits of new material.
Still only book 1. Work on the conversion of the other books, card, and posters is ongoing.

I now have adobe software and can put bookmarks in my PDFs. New version with this feature and a little more editing for polish (see 1st post). About 1/3 of the way into production of Book 2 and have also done bits of Book 3 and appendices. Stay tuned.
