Has anyone done anything with Dark Sun in 5e. I was looking to run it in a few months. Most of my players use Hero Lab so it would be convenient.

I am planning on running a Dark Sun campaign for 5e. The issue is the races and classes are different. I don't have the know how to create the Hero Lab files for my group. Is anyone available to do it for us. We are using the Dark Sun Player’s Handbook For the 5th Edition of Dungeons & Dragons Version 2.0 by Gabriel Zenon Wach. Compensation is negotiable.

Here is a link the the free players handbook if that will help you decide. Thanks

When adding a race that is similar to a 5e race is it better to use Race or Subrace?

It kinda depends. If your new version is going to remove something that's present on the existing base race, then it's easier to just make a new race. If it's only adding to features that are already on the race, then go with subrace.

New base race it is. Unless you really want to make things overly complicated...

Looking to do an ability score thing of a custom race.
Quote:
It says You gain a total increase of 4 between your Strength and Constitution scores. You may divide that increase between these two abilities as you see fit, though you must increase each ability score by at least 1
The variant human lets you pic two ability scores to increase by +1. I thought this would be a good place to start. Just not sure where to go from there.

Check out c5CFBOrcuASI. In the editor, you can pull it up in the Class > Custom Ability tab. Of course, you'll want to recreate it as a similar Racial Special and attach it to your custom race. The important parts to copy over are the Array-Based Menu and the matching Eval Script, switching out INT and WIS for STR and CON.

This one is written as "up to +4", so you can actually lose some of the options that don't total to +4 if you want.

Trying to add a weapon called the Tortoise Blade. It is a buckler type item with a blade on it. Should I add it under armor or weapon do you think?

It only makes sense to put it in armor.
