    Last Updated: November 3, 2021 The holidays are approaching, and with global supply chains disrupted by the ongoing pandemic, we here at RPGBOT are eyeing present ideas earlier than usual so that we can be sure to get gifts lined up before things get too crazy.

  • DnD 5e Warforged Handbook – Updated assessments and improved advice

    The final race selected in September’s Patreon Poll to receive an update, I’ve given the Warforged Handbook some minor updates. The Warforged is an unusual case because it already had a flexible ability score increase. The only pre-Tasha’s race less affected by the custom origin rules was the Human. You can now rearrange the +2 Constitution modifier, but for many builds that just means switching your +1 and your +2. Most of the updates were wording improvements, but I also added 3-stars/green ratings to each class. Several people messaged me asking why there weren’t ratings on the classes, so I decided that

  • DnD 5e Tabaxi Handbook – Updated assessments and improved advice

    Selected in September’s Patreon Poll as the next 5e race handbook to receive an update, I’ve given the Tabaxi Handbook the usual post-Tasha’s updates. When it was introduced, races that granted two skill proficiencies weren’t really a thing with the exception of the half-elf (and the variant human if you took the Skilled feat), so the Tabaxi’s traits were very appealing for Dexterity-based builds, such as rangers and rogues. In a post-Tasha’s world, the custom origin rules open up the Tabaxi’s options considerably, and now their combination of traits brings some interesting capabilities to many other classes, perhaps most notably front-line martial
