Bonus Action - Tasha's Lightning Round

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

In today's (impromptu) bonus action, Carlos leads Braeden and Jordan on a character creation lightning round based on the new subclasses found in Tasha's Cauldron of Everything.

Hey everybody, it's Braden from tripleadvantage here. Unfortunately, while we were recording this week's full episode of tripleadvantage to bring to you, the BOT that we used to record our episodeshad a bit of a meltdown and, long story short, most of ourfootage is completely unusable. While we figure out a workaround, of four hadto record our future episodes, we present to you this salvage content from theepisode that was apparently not meant to be. It is what we're presenting as abonus action, even if it doesn't sound like our typical bonus action structure, but either way, we hope you enjoy. Members of the Society,on Today's echoes of the outlines, we bring you a lightning round for mostlyBraden and Jordan. As I will moderate because I'm slightly hungover from our socialdrinks yesterday over some because covid goes. Really it's been a while since I'vebeen this song over and I hope that you guys can come up with somethinga little bit fast than I am, because my brain is having troubles justrevving up right now. So we've had the newest release Takshas Caldron of everythingcome out and get into the hands of the people, but not our people, because we're poor. And now be Christmas is around the corner, man, and right Christmas this around the Quarner, rapt especially anyways, with all overit, with all the released content, there's no way that we can coverthis in one single episode of or one single segment of echoes of theoutlines. So I wanted to get you guys thoughts on the subclasses that werereleased in this book and, in particular, thought I would be fun if youguys gave me a scenario where you would use a character with this subclass. It can be some sort of hypothetical...

MPC or some sort of class youmight want to try or not class, but some sort of character dynamic thatyou might want to try out. But essentially I'll just give you the descriptionof what the class and subclass are and I want you guys to give methat character as fast as possible, and I'll be picking Braden or Jordan.I'm not going to give you who's first, so be ready. I might atalternate, I might not. I'll keep you guys on your feet.So, to kick it off, what do we think about the artificer.The artificer brings in the armor subclass. This subclass is an artificer who modifiesarmor to be much more than a stab boost. The artificer can now wearheavy armor, which is also a conduit for the artificers magic and viewing itwith enhanced magics, previously unavailable to any class. With two further specializations,Guardian and infiltrator, which give more niche uses for the artifice, or inany group artifice are. In future infusions, artificers will also gain access to newoptions for their infusions, including Arcane, Pulsian armor and self refueling ring,along other along other surprises. Cheez Braden, lightning character creation, ironman right. Alternatively, we have a character that actually is using the armorartificers sub class, the on our starkana version, albeit in one of ourcampaigns, one that I play in, a play, play in as aplayer M he likes to play her as Sammus from metroid. Ah, sothat is at least one used for it. That's that's that's the vibe that I'mgetting. I'm getting like Medieval Tony Stark from that. Like need whatyou doing before you get more ideas from I I've never actually played an Artificer, I've only seen it, so I would probably just use this as moreof a military kind of guy and a...

...leader of presence, a frontliner whowill lead his troops into battle. It's more of an NPC kind of person, I'd say, like a support yeah, support for sure, it's a goodone. All right, and now let's go onto the barbarians, oneof the most fun classes and one of the things that I think I meansomeone cooking up barbarian was in the RCS. But with regards to Tasha's we havepath the beast. The path of the beast is a path which describesor barriers who have spark of bes steal magic in their souls. For Baronswho follow this path, or symbol druts, who wild shape, manifesting magical beaststeel claws, tails or fangs to fight. Progressing in this path leadsthe barbarian to the power to and infect and inspires others with their bes stealspark. All right, Jordan, what comes into mind? Saber tooth fromxmen on it. Yeah, honestly, that's where I go with that kindof thing. A bit more primal beasteal and not necessarily a good guy,I'd say, interesting choice. All right, Britain, what about you? I'venow got a concept for a forest dwelling folk out in the woods,where they're extentially a split society, with the peaceful sages being druids in thewarrior class being path of the beast, barbarians, but they're both animalistic natureor focus people. Okay, that's an interesting center. All right, exploringfurther, and now I guess this might...

...overlap a little bit with ideas,but the path of the wild magic, the path of the wild magic,of the path which describes by barons who have been infused with uncontrolled magics.They gain access to their very own wild magic table, with functions similarly tothe wild magic sorcery table, but with your options. Progressing in this pathgives up a very, a greater control over the magic they unleash. Braden, HMM, this is a tricky one, because barbarian is generally thought to bethe antithesis of magic. HMM. So my first thought, I suppose, is NPC villain, but not like a villain villain, like a likea tragic circumstance villain, where it's almost like a science experiment where he's beenlike experimented on by wizards. Know, he has this uncontrollable magic bursting onthese mad he's just des drolling things. Okay, cool. Jordan. Iwould go with survivor of an incident that occurred in town. So maybe therewas a wizard who was messing with magic in a way that he shouldn't havebeen. It blew up the town, or most of it, or somethinglike that, and he, along with maybe a couple other people, wereinfused with this magic and survived somehow, maybe because of his barbarian roots,or maybe the whole town was a barbarian village and one of them just decidedthat they wanted to try things with magic that they shouldn't have tampered with.This is an interesting one with for me, because I think for the most partwe've already kind of coined that sorcerer's just kind of get magic. Sowhat if this was a barbarian who has magical traits but never, because oftheir tribe, never really practice them, so they just got right with minormagical traits? Well, yeah, more is the still be fighters. Yeah, yeah, that's interesting. But moving...

...on to the Bard, we havethe college of creation. The College of creation focus on creating works of art, whether that's dancing notes of light that grant boons your allies, using theraw power of creation to create non magical goods, or dancing item construct abard can animate. A Bart of creation is constantly recreating reality to suit theirpurposes. and No thanos reference Holy S Jordan Europe first. All right,I was going to make a reference to particular character in the storm light archives, which is a light weaver, which is really cool. She's a fantasticartist and basically, anytime she creates a form of art, what are calledcreations, friend will kind of like pop up around her, which are justthings that it show how well someone is doing something or they're invested in something. It just kind of POPs up. It's really cool. I love theseries. But yeah, that that was what came to mind immediately when Iheard College of creation. As far as WHO ID do for a character likethat, I probably make a character similar to her tragic backstory and kind ofuses art as an escape. Well, it would not be the ind youwithout a tragic backstory. Braden, I don't know, I actually don't know. I'm you fail the tests. One, I know I'm startling. One Idid, this one's. This one's out there for me. This one'sI'm having an actual difficult time picturing how do I haven't seen it mechanically,so I'm having a difficult time picturing how this yeah, I guess it's likeI'm not really giving you guys much of the mechanical elements behind these classes,just the general flavor tax that surrounds it. So, yes, I can understandhow that's difficult, but negative brownie points on your creativeness. I winit. S is definitely up one.

So we'll move on to the collegeof Eloquence. College of Eloquence, introduce in Mythic oddesises of theos, isdedicated to the mastery of the spoken word. This is the best subcast for Bardswho wants to be the spokesperson of the Party, whether you just wanta better change the deception or persuasion checks, or you want to always be understoodregard of this of language barriers, the eloquent Bard is ready for allyour campaign social needs. For the sake of our creativity, I'm going toremove Alexander Hamilton from lists of possible characters. You can create brain gos. Gonnasay, Alexander, you're rooting all my fun, but I actually havea bard that is a he's not a music bard, he's like a Thespian. He's like an actor, and I feel like I almost want to whenI get back to that campaign. Finally, I want to switch him over tocollege of Eloquence, because I think I have of him as Laura orvalor one of the other hmm and this just this just feels very thespian.This feels like the birds finally have a valid class if you want to besomething other than a musician. Yeah, personally, I would go back toagain storm light archives. There's these characters or these people called the world singers, and they go around the world telling tales of the different lands that areabout there, that are out there, and and they try, their goalis to have each of the different areas and countries kind of come to anunderstanding so that there can be like a piece in the world, and theythink that knowledge of the different cultures and that kind of thing is the bestway to do that. And so they create these stories and they tell thesestories to the different people to kind of pass on some sort of wisdom.I think it's a really cool idea and I'd go with that. Or I'vealways wanted to create a singer, so this what might class might be theone for that. If I were to...

...do that, some sort of famoussinger, I could see the singer adaptation perhaps a little bit better, becausethe other idea sounds a little too close to the college of Lorgod Sir.But perhaps I digress. With the clerics we get a couple of new domainsand a couple. Well, in one domain that was brought back from Rephnica, we have the peace domain. The piece of aim is focus on peaceand all forms from a channel divinity that protects you from opportunity attacks while healingeverybody you come close to, to forging allies, to forginge allies together withdivine bonds. The piece clerk is prepared to shut down any conflict. I'mjust going to jump in here and I say that this is a great bard. If we wanted to create Jordan into our campaign, yeah, can Ijust play Jordan Fandco with the peace clerk? That's right, that's why you guyskeep me around. That's my two seconds. Well, Britain and theother ideas the nevolent peacekeeping force, especially given the clerics or heavily affinitied withheavy armor and generally being the quote unquote tank of the Party. I cansee these guys being like a like the specialized arm of a religion. Almost. Yeah, I played as the piece exactly. I played as a oathof Redemption Paladin a bit back and it seems very similar to this peace domainin terms of like tenants and like what they want to push forward. SoI like the idea of my back story for that was someone who was kindof like marginalized and push down and they...

...were actually saved by someone that theythought they were being marginalized by at some point, and that's a gross understatementas far as like what was going on, but the idea was that he sawsomeone do something peaceful and brought about a way for him to redeem himself, I guess, in terms of his own life. So I would gowith something along those lines for peace to open. And next up we havethe twilight domain, which I think it just sounds really cool. From Baseline. It seems one of like it seems like one of the most different ones. The twilight cleric is a master of darkness and light, featuring spells likefairy, fire and sea. invisibility domain features include dark vision with a rangeof three hundred feet, advantage on initiative, which you can grant to others,and manipulating the shadows of the world to go flat, the shadows ofthe world to go fly, grant temporary hit points or even provide cover foryour allies, who Jordan, hot RECU, reay, treing of hearts. Yeah, that's a good straight up. We go with him, right.Yeah, I it's a hard one. I don't know. I'd like aI know shadow doesn't equal evil necessarily, but I want kind of like anantihero cleric. Many good clerics. I kind of like a yeah, andAntihero cleric. I'd like to see that. What, and I mean doesn't dothat for you? Everybody's following orders. Where I piss and following orders.We have the order domain. This is the one that comes back fromRavnica, and the order remain as a cleric subclass for those who like tofollow instructions rather than interpret them. Much like harmancers of Ramnika, these championsof order trust that those who create the...

...laws will do so justly and we'lldo so and we'll do their part to protect the status quote for everyone.Alternatively, a clerk are this domain might be invested in the rules, customsand obligations of a faith, culture or religious institution rather than the law perse. Features this class focus on improving the order clerics ability to the team, dominate and destroy when necessary. That's pretty spicy. Yeah, brighten.Five second character. Oh No, class, that's to for Jordan. Jared,go honestly with this one. It's pretty hard, like there isn't alot to go on. I mean it kind of tells you what your characteralready is going to be like. As in terms of like spicing it up, you could say that this person maybe was screwed over at some point byby the chaos inflicted in their in their town, and so your hell benton bringing order to everything. Or maybe you play like more of a likean obsessive or OCD person, I don't know, like some sort of youcould play into like a disorder that way, potentially, where you just you wantthe world to be right and that means you follow all the rules youknow. Well, it's interesting to me that you would say it's kind oflike. It gives you the character already, and you guys are having so muchdifficulty coming up. It's like when you have an exam and the answersomewhere in the exam, but you don't you just don't trust it. Sonegative points for the both of you on this one. I guess. Waitwhat I just gave you a idea? I'm sorry, you gave me theroundabout kind of answer to an idea. What it could be? Not anidea. Sorry. For druids, we have the circle of spores, whichagain available, and Gild Master's guide to Ravnika, but this revisit includes minorupdates of features, including the access to...

...chill touched can trip. Otherwise we'restill talking about a fungus obsessed rude with with a symbiotic relationship with countless invisiblesports surrounding them at all times. Jordan. Okay, story Drud would you thinkof? Oh well, one that has all the funary animating everything inits path. Either that or maybe someone who ate the wrong mushroom and juststarted producing these spores. I think I see time was kind of playoff ofthat. If you have no idea why this kind of stuff happens, butnow that it's happening to you, you know you got super powers, allright, Britain. Either of you ever seen Dodo head through the anime?No, no, Bananas Anime, absolute Psychedelic, had trip. Would suggestwatching it. Sometimes that essentially magic gone. I'm not in a lot of cases, one of the magic users. Everybody gets like their own magic ability, and one of them is this guy called and who's like the head ofa Mafia family and his power is anything that his magic touches gets turned intomushrooms instantly. I would do exactly that, kind of like GIS. I wassinking. I was thinking circle of spores, Druid, misunderstood person,and it's kind of like a necromancer, but instead of dead bodies, it'sbringing like clickers from the last of us into the world and those are theirpets. Now these now we are running a little bit tight on time withthis segments, so I'm going to start to cut it, cut these down. We're not going to go through every single subclass for each class, soI'll pick my favorite one and we'll go from there. So with the monk, we have what I mean, the cools. Continue this on from nextsegment, like next time. Yes, true, all right, let's dothat in said, because there's a lot of content here that I want toget you, guys as head out of.

But now we've spoiled the fun.Doesn't know what's going to be coming in for next week, and sodoes the audience. True, stay tuned to find out more about the fighter, monk, Paladin, ranger, rogue, sorceror, warlock, wizard. Yeah, anyways, I think you overestimate my capacity for doing homework, though. So are, yeah, yes, yes, Goldfish brained. Let's moveon to the next segment and forget that we just did something prior.
