DnD Beyond

Postby zioalca » Tue Jan 23, 2018 12:39 pm

So, DnD Beyond has released the function to add custom races. I have started working on adding the pony races to my campaign. Anyone else tried doing this? I was wondering if I should share them to the public as well. Not sure if that would be allowed or not...
Any opinions?
I'll also post here if I have any issues trying to build the races.

One person already gave me a prod, and I said they could post the basic races if they included a link to the book.

Unfortunately that is forbidden by DnDBeyond rules. It's a shame too because you can completely flesh out a full pony with subrace and spiritual path pretty easily. I'll have to keep them private. I'd recommend others try out making a homebrew race though if you would like to create character sheets for ponies in 5e quickly.

Here is a link to an FAQ article asking about having links in Homebrew content: https://dndbeyond.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115010238448-Can-I-have-a-hyperlink-within-my-item-spell-monster-that-links-back-to-my-content-elsewhere-DM-Guild-Website-Blog-

Here is the link to their guide lines: https://www.dndbeyond.com/homebrew-rules-guidelines
The second to last section there seems to allow outside content with permission from the creator but the last section has a rule about having links in homebrew items and the FAQ article I linked above seems to clarify it.

I'd be happy to share any information having to do with creating a homebrew pony in DnDBeyond with anyone who has trouble with it.

If you try and publish the homebrew versions of the races, they might just get denied because they're copyright. They have a section in their FAQ about that: https://dndbeyond.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/ ... hat-again-
Without publishing it (that is, keeping it private), you can, as a DM, share it with your party. https://dndbeyond.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/ ... -homebrew-

Then talking about it instead of linking to it would be the way to go (Part of Ponyfinder D&D 5th edition)
