Re: Favored Spells

I think it would be a nice idea. When you gain a new favored spell you can change ONE of your current favored spells as well, as long is a spell you know.

Re: Background Clarification

If I remember well, backgrounds in 5E Symbaroum have mechanical effects and have more synergy with the character origin. I think you would need add some mechanical advantage to DnD 5e backgrounds.

Re: Alpha Feedback - Player's Guide Section 4 Classes & Feats

p 98: Ability Score Improvement or Feat: ASI in the table "The Captain" on page 97 differs from the ASI description on page 98: it's missing 14th level.

Re: Just a few comments on the alpha PDF

Dwarves’ “Pariah” trait (p.53): Initially I thought the word “interaction” in this paragraph referred to charisma checks, but since the other races have this specified and dwarves don’t I guess it means all interactions? This seems way too harsh, as pretty much everything you do is an interaction (...

Re: Can we replace Action Surge?

A common criticism about the martial classes in 5e is that they do not have enough abilities to activate. By removing Action Surge and just add a flat bonus you will give the Warrior class even less abilities. I agree with you in the current scenario where we compare martial classes to spellcasters...

Re: Can we replace Action Surge?

You can certainly do that, but it is not the 5e way to give reliable flat bonuses that can be used every turn, with the exception of proficiency bonus. Of course your player will like a more reliable feature that he doesn't have to hold back for the right moment. It's a little bit of power creep, w...

Can we replace Action Surge?

I,'ve been testing with one of my players that plays a warrior from The Promised Land . We replaced Action Surge with a flat bonus equal to the proficiency bonus at each warrior level and a critical threat increase. We named it Weapon Training . The damage output is about the same (or better) compar...

Intelligence Issue in 5E

Unless you are a spellcaster Intelligence is underrated in 5e. Make Intelligence (at least) meaningful. If you are a melee class (i.e. D&D Fighter) there is no reason whatsoever to have Intelligence at lower level. Intelligence doesn't give you anything except excellence in checks involving Intellig...

Re: Resurrection spells

I kind of agree with the OP.
I would suggest have a section of the 5E Symbaroum with recommended or optional spell changes or restrictions.
One option is attempting ressurrecr someone should award corruption.

Feedback

* Hit Die/Hit Points: It's not very clear when to use your race or class Hit Die or Hit Points, but I love the idea, thought. My suggestion is use the race Hit Die/Hit Points and get a bonus HP when you pick a class if needed. * Scoundrel Explorer: Monster Hunter is quite the skill. If you are a Gob...
