Item: Ring of Change. Putting it on requires rolling two d6s (not 2d6). Based on the results, swap two base stats. Taking it off does nothing. Putting it back on requires another roll & stat swap. Don't tell your players what it does when you give it to them.

hey, please do not use the word “spook” or “spooks” in relation to halloween or scariness etc. it’s been used as a derogatory descriptor of black folk for years and it’s not appropriate. “spooky” or “spooked” as in “i was spooked by this ghost” etc are fine but please change the title of your event.
Good to know! I'll make a new post without that title - Paper

Give the party an amazing water themed weapon that deals extra damage to wet opponents and lets you control water at will, in a campaign set in the desert.

*boosts a bud*
You might have noticed I stopped publishing my homebrew on DMs Guild a while ago, there's multiple reasons for this that I can elaborate on if someone asks.
Since nothing else will be added to it, I decided to set the price of the Everything Bundle, a bundle containing all of my paid homebrew, at a nice round 10$, meaning you save 4$ when buying it.
The Everything Bundle contains the following 16 homebrews:
Abyssal Tieflings: 8 new Tiefling subraces, based on the demon princes of the abyss
Ancient Dragon Patron: A warlock subclass that gives you dragon-based powers, including elemental eldritch blasts and draconic wings
Bonder: A sorcerer subclass based on the bonders of Ikoria from MTG. Bond with a monster and see it mutate and become stronger alongside you
Calls to Adventure: Bridge the gap between background and class by giving you features based on how exactly you got into adventuring
Circle of the Sea: Druids that protect the ocean and use its power to heal, turn into aquatic beasts, and drown their enemies
Circle of the Vampire: Druids that use vampiric powers to protect nature. Grow fangs, bite your enemies, and summon the creatures of the night.
Ma'va'le's Spellbook: A collection of 18 spells that are all slightly stronger versions of official spells that are just a bit too weak, such as true strike, jump, and vampiric touch
Oath of Prudence: A paladin subclass that seeks knowledge, and uses knowledge-based powers to both support their allies and maximize their damage dealt
Ravnican Races Extended (and Expanded - Weird Edition): 14 new races and one new subrace from the plane of Ravnica that weren't in the Guildmasters Guide such as Giants, Vampires, Shapeshifters, and Kraul
School of Tarot: A wizard subclass that uses the power of Tarot to modify their spells. Includes 78 effects that can happen whenever you cast a spell, based on the 78 major and minor arcana of Tarot
Szarla's Spellbook: A collection of 12 spells that can be described as either "funny" or "needlessly cruel", depending on who you ask, including spells such as Heat Organs, Shape Bones, and Detach Tendon
The Archives of Arastranu: A description of the archives of Arastranu, an institution that attempts to collect all knowledge in the multiverse and tries to make it publically available, and a guide for how to use them in your game
The Archivist: A class of seekers and defenders of knowledge who work for the afformentioned archives of Arastranu. Capable of either using powerful psionics or mastering the arcane arts, depending on subclass chosen
Way of the Ancient: A monk subclass for those who while meditating discovered an ancient, eldritch presence deep within themselves, and embraced it. They are capable of manipulating the minds of their opponents with their strikes.
Weapon Feats and Fighting Styles: Six new feats and eight new fighting styles, focused on improving the use of specific weapons, to encourage you to try out weapons you might otherwise not, and to differentiate weapons that are mostly the same.

Write fun ideas for D&D sessions, like “play outside” or “D&D by candlelight” on a pair of dice and roll them before you play to switch things up a bit!
Make sure “strip D&D” and “invite your boss” are on two different dice

Reverse barbarian.
They’re constantly punching everyone all the time, but can calm down and make polite dinner conversations 4 times per long rest.

The warlock normally gets power from their Patrón, but in a pinch any other brand of tequila will work at one caster level lower.

Your players are on the search for a gnome cast out of their village, who formed an alliance with a goblin shunned even by it own kin.
When they find them the two are sat there in suits, reading newspapers and discussing fine art. They despise pranks, loath rambunctiousness and have finally lived their deeply taboo dream of setting up a respectable law firm called Squangles and Lillypoppers.

ok this isn't a probably bad rpg idea but hot take: enchantment should be the Evil Wizard Subclass, and not necromancy. healing spells are necromancy. a lawful good cleric or paladin can be considered a necromancer every time they cast cure wounds, but the enchantment school is bending people's will to match your own, as in dominate person, which is forcing a humanoid to do whatever you want and you can take over its senses, letting you control it. in this essay i will- (ok shutting up now bye-)
No, no, keep talking, I agree - Paper
