Can you foresee any balance issue with a Stars Druid using the Cleric spell list instead of the Druid’s?

Homebrewed campaign where tinkering with class mechanics is encouraged to suit your character, I just want to make sure it isn’t horribly unbalanced.

I have an idea for a divination/stars/universe/fate obsessed character, lumbering, slow, strong, wise, warm. Heavy armour melee/mid-field support. However, I don’t really like the Twilight Domain’s Channel Divinity.

The Stars Druid subclass abilities seem like a good match but the spell list leans towards the terrestrial/battlefield control/summoning rather than astral/divination and I don’t see this character ever using wildshape.

Ideas:

  • make a Stars Druid that uses the Cleric spell list and loses wildshape etc

  • make a Twilight Cleric and swap the Channel Divinity (twice per rest resource for most of the game) for one of the Stars Druids abilities?

  • your idea?

Any input and ideas welcome. When homebrew is encouraged I like to troubleshoot for balance.

Heat balance multilayer with Neumann condition

I am solving the heat equation (diffusion only) over a 3-layer system (physical properties varying from layer to layer).

km = 0.128; rhom = 925; Cpm = 1550;  ka = 0.024; rhoa = 1.292; Cpa = 1003;  thickness = 2*0.136;    L1 = N[-thickness/2]; L2 = N[thickness/2]; T01 = 120; T02 = 20; T03 = 120;  Length1 = 0.5;   v= 40/60;  time1 = Length1/v; 

For describing the properties change in space, I use the following equation:

slope = 1000; SmoothedStepFunction[fL_, fmax_, fR_, tsL_, tsR_, m_] :=   Function[t, (fL*Exp[tsL*m] + fmax*Exp[m*t])/(Exp[tsL*m] +       Exp[m*t]) - (fR*Exp[tsR*m] + fmax*Exp[m*t])/(Exp[tsR*m] +       Exp[m*t]) + fR];  rhoCp[x_] :=    SmoothedStepFunction[rhoa*Cpa, rhom*Cpm, rhoa*Cpa, L1, L2, slope][x]; k[x_] := SmoothedStepFunction[10^6*ka, 10^6*km, 10^6*ka, L1, L2,      slope][x]; 

The actual heat balance is solved here:

heateq = rhoCp[x]*D[u[x, t], t] ==     Inactive[Div][{{k[x]}}.Inactive[Grad][u[x, t], {x}], {x}];  ic[x_] :=    Piecewise[{{T01, x < L1}, {T02, L1 <= x <= L2}, {T03, x > L2}}];  sol1 = First[    NDSolve[{heateq, u[x, 0] == ic[x]},      u, {x, -2*thickness, 2*thickness}, {t, 0, time1},      Method -> {"MethodOfLines",        "SpatialDiscretization" -> {"FiniteElement",          "MeshOptions" -> {"MaxCellMeasure" -> 0.01}}}]]; 

Despite it works well, I still have a question: next to the Neumann boundary conditions (Inactive[Div][{{k[x]}}.Inactive[Grad][u[x, t]) that are applied over the interfaces to connect the solutions in each domain, are there other boundary conditions applied implicitly?

What balance pitfalls result from this house rule regarding levitating creatures?

My table is considering the following house rule:

A creature suspended above the ground and unable to move on its own (e.g., under the effect of the levitate spell) is especially susceptible to forces that would push or pull it. When you successfully target a suspended creature with an effect that would move it, you can choose to move it an additional number of feet equal to 5 times your relevant ability modifier (e.g., your Strength modifier if you shoved the creature with a special melee attack, or your spellcasting ability modifier if you used a magical effect, such as the gust spell or the shove effect of the Telekinetic feat). The additional movement must be in the same direction as the normal movement caused by the effect you used.

A creature with a flying speed is not affected by this rule.

The logic here should be obvious — a creature hanging in mid-air, with no ability whatsoever to stop itself from being moved, should be easy to move. But what are the implications of such a house rule from a balance standpoint? Are we setting ourselves up for headaches?

(For context: this might seem like a corner case, but we’re playing a heavily psionics-themed campaign, and so maximizing players’ opportunities to embody the tropes of telekinesis even at low levels is important. It isn’t inconceivable that someone else in a similarly-themed campaign might have similar ideas.)

What has Mordenkainen done to maintain the balance?

I understand that Mordenkainen has become a wizard who strives to ‘maintain the balance’. My understanding of which involves ensuring that neither good, evil, law or chaos become too strong (though my interest lies in his specific view on balance, so if I am wrong in the above then please correct me).

I have found his various adventures which seem to mostly be when he was still a player character and thus before he decided that the balance was his calling, but I can’t find anything that actually says what he has done, or does to maintain that balance. All I can find is vague things like ‘keeps the blood war going’ and I can’t even find proper sources for that (this is the most complete source, but how accurate any of it is I don’t know).

From official material, including handbooks, films, computer games, quotes, interviews, notebooks stolen from the bins beside the WoTC office, or any other sources; what actions has Mordenkainen actually undertaken to help maintain ‘the balance’?

I am looking for answers that can prove the reason for an action was specifically to maintain the balance, not just a list of things he might have done where the motivation is unknown or unclear.

Is this homebrewed four-armed race balance?

Some backstory: this is already in play. We play a homebrew space campaign. My DM is very lenient and the table doesn’t care all that much about balance as long as everyone has fun. Surprisingly, the Four-Armed trait rarely comes into play so far (I’m playing a Hunter Ranger using a longbow). That said, I want to know how it stands compared to the other playable races, here are the traits:

Virashti

The Virashti are a race of blue-skinned, four-armed geniuses that lives in forest cities. They have learned how to balance advancing technology while preserving nature. They have the best education system in the galaxy.

  • Ability Scores Increase. Your Dexterity score increase by 2, and your Intelligence score increase by 1.
  • Age. Virashti mature about the same rate as humans, but they can live up to 100 years.
  • Alignment. Most Virashti are good in nature. They generally don’t have a preference towards lawful or chaotic.
  • Size. Virashti range from 5 feet to over 6 feet tall. Your size is Medium.
  • Speed. Your base walking speed is 30 feet.
  • Darkvision. Accustomed to twilit forests and the night sky, you have superior vision in dark and dim conditions. You can see in dim light within 60 feet of you as if it were bright light, and in darkness as if it were dim light. You can’t discern color in darkness, only shades of gray.
  • Four-Armed. Your morphology has grant you an extra set of arms. These arms can be used for tasks such as, performing somatic components of spells, grappling, or wielding weapons. Once per turn, you can also draw, stow, or interact with an object requiring no action, assuming you have a free hand.
    When you attack with a weapon that does not have the Heavy property, you can make an off-hand attack using a separate weapon that also does not have the Heavy property using your bonus action. This off-hand attack does not add your ability modifier to the damage rolls, following the rules of two-weapon fighting.
    Furthermore, you cannot use a shield while you are wielding a weapon with the Heavy property, or wielding more than one weapon simultaneously.
  • Virashti Training and Knowledge. You are proficient in the Athletics or Sleight of Hand skill, and one skill of your choice from the following list: Arcana, History, Investigation, Nature, or Religion.
  • Languages. You can speak, read, and write Common and Virashti.

Now, obviously the big thing is that Four-Armed trait. Yes, this does mean that you can dual wield longswords (or equivalent) and rapiers right out the gate, making the Dual Wielder feat less appealing (if not obsolete). This also means that you can dual wield non-heavy two-handed weapons such as, greatclubs, light crossbows, or shortbows.

I’ve compared it to races like Aarakocra, which gets flight, and Satyrs, which gets magic resistance, and feels like this is pretty balanced, or at least comparable to them. Dual wielding shortbows is especially comparable to variant Humans picking up Crossbow Expert, if not worse.

Is this race overpowered when compared to other 5e races? And if so, how can I improve balancing this race?

Ephemeral Tread’s balance implications

The feat ephemeral tread paired with the spell dream travel, seems to let you travel to the dimension of dreams, and perform impossible actions. This seems to let you at a low level, cast wish upon yourself to gain permanent bonuses. Or to create an artifact, then astral project yourself onto the material plane with new artifacts? Is this actually possible uses or is there something that prevents the use of such powerful methods?

Using astral projection would be difficult as you would have to work around the duration of dream travel and the 1/day impossible action. However I’m sure there exist methods to prolong or regain your use while on the dimension of dream.

Help me balance my Homebrew Born-Lycanthrope Race please

I’ve built a homebrew race for born lycanthropes of different varieties. I’ve referenced the Order of the Lycan Blood Hunter class and NPC Werewolves while I was building it and used my imagination for some of the other strains of Lycanthropy (Weredrake, Bat, Etc.)
I had two aims while making this race. My first aim was to have all the different types be obviously part of the same group but all offer something a little different in terms of their flavor and what they offer mechanically. The second aim was to really convey that Lycanthropy was both a powerful gift and an impractical curse in the life of a person, but as a born lycanthrope they could slowly learn to control it over time if they wished to try, and as a result function more normally in everyday life. Could you help me get to a point where benefits and drawbacks are well balanced and suggest any points where some more flavor might be needed to explain some mechanical decisions? The aim, while making sure the class isn’t too OP is to have some really strong abilities that balance out with some big drawbacks rather than nerfing it to have small benefits and small drawbacks.

Many Thanks
