Re: Need a Ruling

My other "Laymen's Suggestion" would be to rule that, because Eclipse can wild shape into a Worg and cast V spells as Worg, she can't shift that extra time per day as a Worg. The benefit to the party of her casting V as Worg is really the Healing Word spell. That benefit could be balanced ...

Casting in Wildshape

You should not be casting when using wild shape. I should have caught this and paid closer attention. It's allowed at 18th level, but that's too high an ability to give as freebie... Being able to cast in any beast shape is, indeed, very powerful, I agree. Even just casting as a Worg with both V an...

All the tables are fine. You can pick one to be your home table (swamp, I assume) and we can discuss which other forms you've seen while adventuring. Because of her "thing" about Owlbears, I'd say "Forest" would be her origins. But both Tielfling tribes and Worg packs do roam an...

Healing

I'm confused about this one. Druid Circle spells are for Circles of the Land isn't Eclipse a Circle of the Moon? Gosh Darn! That's my fault, mis-memory. It's her Tielfling bonus spells not Druid-related. See Players p43 "Infernal legacy." Can she sacrifice those slots to do healing on oth...
