screencap of the problem here
I’m sure this has a simple solution but I haven’t found it answered yet. I have two tilemaps, one a BG and one a middle layer, and everything works when I paint on the middle layer. It shows up on top of the BG.
But if I save the project or open play mode to test it, the middle layer disappears. Seems like it gets sent behind the BG tilemap but the order of the tilemaps hasn’t changed. Also of note is that nothing changes even if I reorder the tilemaps, and the only way I can make the tilemap "reappear" is by ctrl-z undoing my last action. At a loss, any takers?
I will explain what I’m trying to accomplish as I am having a difficult time figuring out the best way to ask this question. I have a custom theme that I am working on. I have several custom page templates for different page layouts etc.
I have one page template that places the page title centered below the header on top of a full width background image (featured image)…..a common template the user could use for interior pages if they want.
I realized that maybe they would want this feature at the top of some of the other layout templates. How can I add this to the top of every page template, but allow the feature to be checked on or off in the page editor? I feel like this should be somewhat standard, but I’m stuck.
Any help greatly appreciated!
I’m making a character for an upcoming D&D 5e campaign who is secretly a dragon who permanently polymorphed itself (so, no mechanical advantages, just story background). Wondering what background would best reflect the fact that – rather than having a typical human upbringing – my character spent the first hundred or so years of his life as an avaricious fire-breathing gold-hoarding dragon before deciding, for reasons of his own, that being smaller and friendlier was better. My DM is open to homebrew content, so if there’s something out there already or modifications that could be made to an existing published background that’s fair game. I thought about maybe modifying the flavor of the Noble background, but mechanically I’m not sure if there’s something that makes better sense.
The Gladiator background (an Entertainer variant, from PHB p. 130-131) gives a strange weapon (like a trident or net) as starting equipment, but doesn’t explicitly specify that it gives proficiency with said weapon.
Is it implied that it does? (Or if not, should it, considering that a seasoned gladiator is expected to be particularly skilled with his weapon of choice?)
The PHB refers to engineers in the Gnome race description, however, I find no other reference to engineers as a background. It seems like it would fall into the Guild Artisan category, but none of the business options seem very ‘engineery.’ Is there a more specific engineering background/ guild business?
I find it odd that some backgrounds give the character proficiency with tools but then do not list those tools under equipment.
For example, the Urchin:
Tool Proficiencies: Disguise kit, thieves’ tools
Equipment: A small knife, a map of the city you grew up in, a pet mouse, a token to remember your parents by, a set of common clothes, and a belt pouch containing 10 gp
Does the fact the Urchin is proficient with the disguise kit and thieves tools imply she starts with them? Or is she somehow proficient with tools she does not own?
Say you choose to roll for starting gold for your class (and then buy equipment).
Do you still get the starting equipment from your background (but not from your class)?
Or do you not get any starting equipment at all, from either your class or your background?
Is it just up to the DM?
In the Backgrounds section:
Each background gives a character proficiency in two skills. Skills are described in chapter 7. In addition, most backgrounds give a character proficiency with one or more tools. Tools and tool proficiencies are detailed in chapter 5. If a character would gain the same proficiency from two different sources, he or she can choose a different proficiency of the same kind (skill or tool) instead.
Could a Barbarian character being created, for instance, pick Athletics and Survival as his class skills, and then when selecting a background, pick Outlander (which grants proficiency in these two skills), and then using this rule, instead pick two skills from the whole skill list?
Or is your background chosen before class skill-proficiencies?
I’m using paladin class and a homebrew race. What is a good background for my samurai character? Any homebrew links work too. I do have money to buy some backgrounds.
I made a trickster cleric with spy background. This caused an overlap of stealth and disguise. (Further compounded by me wanting to take hide in shadow … which again granted me stealth.)
What happens when you are granted a skill from multiple sources?
