So they have one racial HD?It is racial HD. Thought it was evident.
No doubt of that, but sneaking around in the dark is harder when you can't see. It was just a thought. I like the fact that a tactical choice is required.Not really. You're not forced to keep it on.
Any time you go up one hid dice, the average increase is only going to be one point.Wait, so instead of having d6 instead of d4 a Warlock should have d4+1 hit points per level? Maybe I misunderstood what you said.
The average roll of a d4 = 2.5
The average roll of a d6 = 3.5
The average roll of a d8 = 4.5
The average roll of a d10 = 5.5
The average roll of a d12 = 6.5
A net increase on average of one point at each die size increase from d4-d12.
Makes sense.I just assume my races/classes will be used with the formal, base 3.5 mechanics. If I wouldn't assume that, I would use my own homebrewed rules, not others' anyway.
Then I'm guessing that a template addition would do the sameIf it is permanent, they lose racial benefits. If not, no.
No doubt. I'm just used to DMing for guys that have math as an 8th language. I usually end up being the group calculator.I've seen much more complicated systems and abilities than that.
Belive me, I like ability. Abilities that can have "unforeseen" consequences are fun for mixing things up.Again, nobody forces you to use it. If a Wizard disguises himself and goes to a crowning, he does have the choice to Baleful Polimorph the new monarch. Even if then his hundreds of soldiers will slaughter him, he still has that choice.
It could also be a great way to get an adventuring party started.
Just personal experience. Anytime I've ever played a PC (in multiple groups over the years) with an ability that enduces fatigue, I've ended up getting hammered after actually using it.I wonder why you'd never use it. Damage too low? Fatigue too high?
Mechanically it makes sense as he is giving up his personal energy to accomplish the effect.
