    Default Nintendo D20 [D&D Next]

    So I came up with a couple hundred pages of this stuff about seven years ago. I recently got the itching to try it again.

    I have two major design principles when homebrewing fan material:
    1. Everything you write should be portable and usable in any setting and any campaign.
    2. Keep the tone as close to the source material as possible.

    Green Block
    Uncommon wondrous item
    This heavy green box is cold to the touch. It can be used to protect one creature by turning his body into living metal.
    Property [Consumable]: As an action you strike the block with your fist. The block flows over your skin, making your body extremely dense and shiny. For one minute you gain resistance to slashing, bludgeoning, piercing, cold, and poison damage. You also become very heavy, making you unable to swim in water, and granting advantage on Strength checks to resist being repositioned. This effect ends after one minute.

    Healing Mushroom
    Common potion
    This red-and-white mushroom smells delicious.
    Property [Consumable]: As an action you eat the mushroom and regain 2d4+2 hit points.

    Mega Mushroom
    Uncommon potion
    This red-and-yellow mushroom feels bloated and heavy.
    Property [Consumable]: As an action you can eat the mushroom, causing you and your equipment to double in size. Your size increases by one category, you gain a +2 bonus to attack rolls, and your melee attacks to 50% more damage than normal. However, you suffer a -2 penalty to AC and Dexterity saving throws. This effect ends after one hour, or when you take any lethal damage.

    Power Star
    Legendary wondrous item
    This glowing star piece emits a low hum. At night it sheds bright light out to 120 feet.
    Property [Consumable]: As an action you press the star against your bare skin and its energy fills your extremities. For three rounds you become immune to all forms of damage, and you automatically succeed on all saving throws and opposed ability contests. Additionally, you gain advantage on all attack rolls, the damage of your attacks doubles, and your opponents suffer disadvantage on their saving throws against your spells, magic items, or anything else you do that would allow a saving throw.

    Transient Wings
    Rare wondrous item
    These feathery wings trail white sparkles and feel weightless. They flap gently when not held, hovering a few feet above the ground on their own power. When held near a creature's shoulders they will attach themselves to his back. Wings attached to a creature cannot be removed unless he willingly detaches them, or if he is unconscious.
    Property: You have a fly speed equal to your normal speed. If you remain airborne for three rounds, or if you take damage, the wings become inactive. While inactive you fall at a rate of 10 feet per round (or faster if desired). The wings become active again when you firmly places your feet on the ground.

    Legend of Zelda Items

    Blue Potion
    Uncommon potion
    This brew smells like rotten apples and wet leaves. It leaves an electric feeling on the tongue.
    Property [Consumable]: A spellcaster who drinks this potion regains three spell levels worth of expended spell slots. This can also restore daily uses of spells from other sources, such as the Magic Adept feat.

    Cane of Somaria
    Uncommon magic weapon (quarterstaff)
    This crooked staff is coated with what looks like bright-red enamel. When grasped, its wielder becomes acutely aware of geometric shapes and is able to state the precise angles and measurements of any object or structure he can see.
    Property: You gain a +1 bonus to the attack rolls and the damage rolls you make with this quarterstaff.
    Property [Attuned]: As an action you can wave the cane to create a five-foot cube of dense reddish material. The cube weighs 50 pounds, has AC 5, has resistance to all forms of damage, and 25 hit points. You can hook the cane into the cube as part of your movement, effortlessly sliding it along the ground adjacent to you (but it stops if pushed against an obstacle or another creature). As an action you may command the cube to self-destruct, dealing 3d6 fire damage to all creatures adjacent to it (Reflex half).

    Red Potion
    Common potion
    This brew smells like bitter medicine. It tastes sweet on the tongue.
    Property [Consumable]: As an action you drink the potion and regain 2d4+2 hit points.



    If this gets too big I'll have to move it to Google Drive.

    Does anyone have any ideas about what to do for the Toad and Shy paragon feats? Does anyone have any requests?

    Kinda would have liked to see some of their capabilities as per that video in the abilities.

    Sadly I haven't looked into DnD Short Sighted Edition Name. So I can't really suggest mechanical stuff for it yet. But definitely having the Koopa Wings, Para-Goomba Wings, and the ability to throw babies as ammunition, yeah. Would be fun.

    Good point. I guess I'll have to put the shell charge attack back in.

    Wings are a consumable item, I've got plans for the power-ups. It's going to work exactly like most power-ups from the sidescrollers (you have the power-up until you take damage).

    I'm not entirely sure how D&D next works, but base movement should be a multiple of 10, just so it makes it easier to half.

    Nah. D&D Next gives Small-sized races 25 foot speed, and wood elves get 35 foot speed.

    D&D Next also does odd ability score boosts instead of even ability score boosts. Crazy, I know...

    Added items. This should cover the wings that are so commonly requested.

    The Zora have probably developed some kind of lotion or potion for when they need to spend time away from bodies of water. Though since the player would be using it to buy off one of the drawbacks of their race choice, I'm not sure if it should be expensive or not. Probably not, since if they're in a position that they need to use it, they don't get much advantage from wet skin, right?

    Some kind of oil, perhaps. It would probably only be a stopgap measure, only doubling the amount of time they can go without water.
