Daily Punch 6-15-21 Elfshot spell for DnD 5e

Saw Tasting History, so now I have an idea for today!

Elfshot

5th-level enchantment

Casting Time:1 action
Range: 200 feet
Components: V, S, M (arrow head made from a fingernail)
Duration:30 days

You throw the arrowhead at a target in range making a ranged spell attack. On a hit, the target is pierced by the spell. Unless someone directly sees you throw the arrow, the target does not know they are affected. Each day at moonrise, the target must make a Constitution saving throw. On a failure, the target gains one level of exhaustion. This level of exhaustion can not be removed until this curse is lifted or the spell ends. If the target dies from this spell, no wound is found on the surface, but a hole from an arrow will be found inside the target.

The spell can be recognized with a successful Intelligence(arcana) or Wisdom(medicine) check. You can end the spell by making a Wisdom(medicine) check using the plants feverfew, red nettles and waybread as components in the treatment. A remove cursegreater restoration, or wish spell also ends it. In either case to end the spell, you must be aware that the target is affected by this spell.

Ring Side Report-RPG Review of Pathfinder Society Scenario #2-02: Mountain of Sea and Sky

Product– Pathfinder Society Scenario #2-02: Mountain of Sea and Sky

System- Pathfinder

Producer– Paizo

Price– $5.99 here https://paizo.com/products/btq024wz?Pathfinder-Society-Scenario-202-Mountain-of-Sea-and-Sky 

TL; DR-A better first scenario! 98%

Basics–  Pathfinder!  The Society calls!  A new lodge is being built and new agents are needed to help with getting the area settled. You won’t be wielding a hammer.  The land needs to be purified and the locals may help or hurt if you make enough friends.  An intro adventure for levels 3 to 6.

Mechanics or Crunch-I love the crunch here.  There are a ton of fights, but none drag on.  Also, there are multiple things like social encounters, exploration, and some solid fights as well.  Heck there is even a hard boss fight, but like all good RPGs, if you play smart and make friends, life is easier.  This feels like a great introduction to the system and world, even better than 2-01.  5/5

Theme or Fluff– Story, combat, exploration, and social-all parts of a solid whole that make a fun adventure.  When I run this I have a blast and so do my players.  Nothing drags; there is always time left but you leave feeling full.  More adventures like this are needed to pull new pathfinders into the fold.  5/5

Execution– PDF? Yes.  Hyperlinked?  Yes.  Good layout, handout, and all the other basics make this a solid adventure.  The only thing I don’t like are the maps that are marked up so I have to buy the other map somewhere else.  That always feels cash grabby, but that is the only bad thing here.  4.75/5

Summary-I love this adventure.  You get new locations, new characters, and solid fights that make a fun adventure.  It’s balanced well with a fun boss fight and great execution that makes running this a blast.  Would like clean maps, but that is my only problem.  If you want some intro to Pathfinder, you won’t go wrong with this one.  98%

Daily Punch 6-9-21 Pedagogy cleric domain for DnD 5e

More ideas for all the knowledge based characters out there!

Pedagogy

Knowledges is power, but power not shared is useless. Knowledge must flow and be told. You and your god specialize in teaching others all the things you know. These insights will help you better understand the world around you and help all you serve better understand themselves and others. Go cleric spread the good words to others!

Cleric LevelSpells
1stcomprehend language, detect mgic
3rddetect thoughts, animal messenger
5thtongues, sending
7thdivination, compulsion
9thlegend lore, modify memory

Bonus Proficiency

When you choose this domain at 1st level, you gain proficiency in a number of tools or languages equal to your Wisdom modifier.

Disciple of Knowledge

Also starting at 1st level, your wisdom helps with your knowledge. When you make a Intelligence skill check, add your Wisdom modifier as well..

Channel Divinity: Speed Learning

Starting at 2nd level, you can use your Channel Divinity to deliver a bold of knowledge to another. As an action, you choose one skill or tool you are proficient in and touch a creature. For 10 minutes, the target has proficiency with the chosen skill or tool.

Assistant

Beginning at 6th level, when you do the help action with another character, in addition to advantage, they add your Wisdom modifier to the roll as well.

Mind Strike

At 8th level, you learn how to now directly strike to a foes mind. Gain the eldritch blast cantrip as a cleric spell but instead of force damage it does psychic damage instead.

Fail Forward

Starting at 17th level, when you see someone attempt a skill check with which you are proficient, you can spend a spell slot of the highest you have available so long as its level one, to give the target a reroll on the check. This may only be attempted once per check.

Ring Side Report-RPG Review of Starfinder Society Scenario #1-16: Dreaming of the Future

Product– Starfinder Society Scenario #1-16: Dreaming of the Future

System- Starfinder

Producer– Paizo

Price– $5.99 here https://paizo.com/products/btpya08w?Starfinder-Society-Scenario-116-Dreaming-of-the-Future 

TL; DR-Good introduction to the world of Starfinder Society.  92%

Basics–  Starfinder!  Society calls!  New Starfinders are needed to help find the pieces of an old tablet that will open a long lost vault in the stars.  This adventure is four short scenes that are all tied together in one adventure.

Mechanics or Crunch-This is a good introductory adventure that has some exploration, combat, space combat, and a bit of social interaction.  The only downside is the pieces may be a bit easy for most players.  Even pregens have an easy go of this one.  But it’s fun nonetheless.  4.5/5

Theme or Fluff– This adventure is four short adventures that all tie together.  It’s a bit rough between the pieces, but the goal of this one is to be more an intro to the world, Starfinder Society, and the system. It does a solid enough job with a decent story providing the basics of the world and story of it.  4.5/5

Execution– PDF? Yes.  Hyperlinked?  Yes.  Good layout, handout, and all the other basics make this a solid adventure.  The pieces I don’t like are the maps that you have to buy because the maps are marked up.  I understand why, but it’s still annoying.  That’s the worst part of the execution, so that is not bad at all.  4.75/5

Summary-. Dreaming of the Future is a solid introduction with a few rough parts.  The rough parts are all due to the episodic nature of this one.  The pieces are short but that helps with new players learning the system.  If you want a fun quick adventure for a new group of Starfinders, you would have a hard time finding a better one than this one.  92%

Daily Punch 6-8-21 Debilitating Learning spell for DnD 5e

How about instead of a save we use a skill check? What do people say?

Debilitating Learning

1st-level enchantment

Casting Time:1 action
Range:30 feet
Components:V, S, M (a book)
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

You impart your knowledge to three creatures with an Intelligence score of 5 or higher and possibly overwhelm the target. Choose nature, religion, arcana, or history, and make an Intelligence check for that skill. Each target must make the check as well. If their check is lower then your check, they are stunned.

At the start of each of its turns, the target can make another skill check with the DC equal to your check to end the effect. On a success, the spell ends. Damaging the target instantly ends the effect.

When the effect ends, the next check the target makes using that skill is made with advantage.

At Higher Levels: When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 2nd level or higher, the number off affected targets increases by one for each slot level above 2nd.
