Can a Tiefling Monk access the Enlightened Fist PrC without dipping into a caster class?

Enlightened Fist has as a prerrequisite:

Spells or Spell-Like Abilities: Arcane caster level 3rd.

A Tiefling has Darkness as a spell-like ability with a caster level equal to its character level. Unless I’m reading the prerrequisite wrong, a 3rd level or higher Tiefling could acces the PrC as long as he accomplishes the other prerrequisites (quite easily being a Monk), however, the spellcasting class feature reads like this:

Spells per Day/Spells Known: Except at 1st level and 6th level, an enlightened fist gains new spells per day (and spells known, if applicable) as if she had also gained a level in an arcane spellcasting class to which she belonged before adding the prestige class level. She does not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained (such as the bonus feat sometimes gained by a wizard). If she had more than one arcane spellcasting class before becoming an enlightened fist, she must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells per day and spells known.

implying that he MUST have some levels in a caster class, and even if it didn’t, a monk-only would have no list from where to draw spells, so… Can someone confirm if this is possible or not?

Is there any way though feats for a non-caster tiefling to get wings?

Right now I’m running a Tiefling monk and while I don’t think it would be particularly useful to sprout wings, while I was researching feats I found out there are feats specific for tieflings that give them wings (Fiendish Bloodline and Outsider Wings).

However, those feats are for 3.0 and in 3.5 the first feat has the prerrequisite of being able to cast 1st level spells without preparation, so even if there was a feat that required the first one, non-caster tieflings would not be able to get them. So, as the title says; is there any combination of feats in 3.5 that can give wings to a tiefling?

Can a Tiefling self-mutilate to remove their horns/tail, and if so, does it do damage?

I’m wondering if removing horns and tail is possible for a Tiefling, and if so, if it causes damage and/or permanent hit point loss.

I am also wondering if said horns and tail grow back in time.

The question also applies to the pointy end of (Half) Elf ears, to the big teeth of a Half-Orc, etc.

What different skin colour can a tiefling officially have?

I’m interested in knowing how different colours a tiefling’s skin may can be, with official backing. By official backing, I mean, there are plenty of fan-images out there of tieflings of all sorts of colours, but I’m primarily interested in official art for any edition of D&D, and better yet, such skin colours explicitly stated in the text.

Typically, as I pointed out in my previous question, tieflings (in 5e, at least) have either “human skin colour”, red skin, or somewhere in between.

From the 5e Tiefling player race description, Infernal Bloodline section (PHB, p. 42):

Their skin tones cover the full range of human coloration, but also include various shades of red.

Examples of other colours (all non-5e references come from this answer):

  • Blue skin: In 2e, The Planewalker’s Handbook, p. 80, blue skin is an option. In 3e, Races of Faerun, pp. 125-126, blue skin is attributed to having night hag heritage. In 5e, Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide, p. 118 mentions this in the Tiefling Variants sidebar (“red or dark blue skin”).
  • Green skin: In 2e, The Planewalker’s Handbook, p. 80, green skin is an option.
  • Purple skin: In 5e, the main art for the Tiefling player race is purple (thanks @Guybrush McKenzie), although given that this is on the same page of the PHB as the first quote above, and it is a rather reddish-purple (as opposed to a more blueish-purple), it may be argued that it counts as a “shade of red”?
  • Honourable mention to the ivory white tiefling, although there’s Q&A that concludes that it counts as a “human skin tone”, so that may not count here: Can a tiefling have permanent ivory white skin?

Are there any other tiefling skin colours, either shown in official art or, better yet, mentioned in any official text? I’m not considering novels, only rulebooks and lorebooks. Also, ideally, I’d like images to be backed up by text (hence, are there any mentions in any text of the purple tiefling, for which I only have a picture to infer that it is possible?) where such text exists.

It would be great if answers could include lore explanations for each skin colour, as per my previous question, but since that had a whole question just for blue skin, I’m going to consider that a “nice to have” rather than a hard requirement for answers, lest this become too broad (but it would save me asking “what’s the lore behind green?”, “what’s the lore behind purple?”, etc).

Question about Tiefling Warlock [closed]

Regarding having an Archefey Tiefling Warlock that’s level 2 right now, I had a question regarding cantrips before I level up to 3.

You know the thaumaturgy cantrip. When you reach 3rd level, you can cast the hellish rebuke spell as a 2nd-level spell once with this trait and regain the ability to do so when you finish a long rest. When you reach 5th level, you can cast the darkness spell once with this trait and regain the ability to do so when you finish a long rest. Charisma is your spellcasting ability for these spells.

Does this Thaumaturgy cantrip that Tieflings get passively count towards my Cantrips Known slot? Or can I continue to choose 2 more cantrips, let’s say Blade Ward and Eldritch Blast, following Thaumaturgy, meaning I’ll have 3 cantrips total?

Are the Tiefling subraces from Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes specific to a particular campaign set?

Are the Tiefling subraces from Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes specific to a particular campaign set?

In Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes (MTF) there is a section on Tiefling Subraces (p.21), which elaborates on how the information about a Tiefling’s ability score increase and the Infernal Legacy contained in the Player’s Handbook relates to Asmodeus. Let’s say the “default Tiefling” prior to MTF.

Under Tieflings Subraces there is a variety of Subrace Traits for e.g. Tieflings associated with Baalzebul or Fierna.

It says this is a DM’s option to include other Tiefling subraces, but I was wondering: Is this intended specific to a particular Campaign Set, or it’s meant to be a global change?

Would it be unbalanced to offer a cambion’s Fiendish Blessing as a racial feat for a tiefling player?

The Cambion monster in the MM p.36 has the trait Fiendish Bleesing:

Fiendish Blessing The AC of the cambion includes its Charisma bonus.

Would it be unbalanced to offer my player’s tiefling paladin a reskinned version as a racial feat (Feat as in instead of ASI)?


Fiendish Blessing The blood of your fiendish ancestors protects you just as it does them. You gain a bonus to your AC equal to your Charisma modifier.
