I want to run some DnD without clerics. I don’t think we can now, but how about if we build in some healing like Pathfinder 2nd Ed?

You are a master a caring for those who need it in a hurry. Gain the following benefits:

  • Increase you Wisdom or Intelligence by 1, to a maximum of 20.
  • As an action, you can care for a living creature. That creature may spend a number of hit dice equal to your proficiency bonus and heal based on the roll.

Daily Punch 2-20-21 Elite feat for DnD 5e

Made this for Starfinder, but I think it fits in Eberron as well.

Elite

You are just that good. You can spend a hero point to make two checks instead of one as an action when you use a skill with which you are proficient. If you succeed at one check and fail at the other, you are considered to have succeeded. If you succeed both times, you can count it as two successes or one success with a value equal to three higher than the best check.

Ring Side Report-RPG Review of EB-EP-02 Rolling Thunder

Product– EB-EP-02 Rolling Thunder

System- DnD 5e

Producer– DMs Guild

Price– $6.00 here https://www.dmsguild.com/product/335587/EBEP02-Rolling-Thunder?affiliate_id=658618

TL; DR-A great train robbery!  98%

Basics-Time for a train heist!  Can you infiltrate a train, get all the pieces, and break into the vault all while not alerting the entire Breland military? This is a multi table event that can be run with a single table as well.  Now to our thoughts.

Mechanics or Crunch– THIS IS NOT A COMBAT ADVENTURE!  Big alert on this!  If the party is down to kill everyone all the time, they will not have fun!  But, if you want to flex your non-combat expertise, this will be an amazing experience.  The crunch here is well done and the new mechanics are well executed.  I would like a bit more fighting so the fighter with no skills still gets to do a bit more.  From cooking to social to even some puzzles, this is a fun change from the standard kill everything adventure.  4.75/5

Theme or Fluff– Since this is not a dungeon crawl, the fluff here has to be tight.  And it delivers!  There are a lot of materials here to make this feel like an upper class train ride.  Players duck between cooking, gambling, social, and even some stealth all while trying to blend in.  There are a lot of pieces to the puzzles of this adventure, but honestly they all fit well together in a great picture. 5/5

Execution–  PDF?  YEP!  Hyperlinked? Yes there are bookmarks.  The adventure is set up with enough information that you can run as a multi table event or single table easily.  The handouts are well done and easy for the players to read.  The adventure reads well and quick, so there is no confusion on what is going on.  This team executed another solid adventure.  5/5

Summary-I love the new format of epics in DnD.  I love more players being able to play.  That makes me happy, and would alone be worth a good review.  But, the Eberron team is constantly delivering solid adventures that I love.  This is no exception.  If you want to be part of a train heist that is amazing to play and easy to run, then grab this adventure.  98%

Daily Punch 2-8-21 Heroic Speed feat for DnD 5e

Had a blast at Winter Fantasy this weekend. Had a fighter full of hero points surrounded by enemies who walked away. Let’s fix this problem!

Heroic Speed

You use your moment to do what needs to be done. You can spend a hero point to gain an additional reaction or bonus action. You may not spend a hero point on any rolls associated with that reaction or bonus action.

If it hits, the target takes 1d6 magic bludgeoning damage and all enemies engaged with the target make a Dexterity save or take 1d6 magic bludgeoning damage as well.

At Higher Levels: When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 3rd level or higher, increase the number of fruit pieces by 1 for each slot level above 2nd.
