dnd 5e – Rune Knight Fighter 15th level festure

In the description for this feature, it says

Master of Runes:
You can invoke each rune you know from your Rune Carver feature twice, rather than once, and you regain all expended uses when you finish a short or long rest.

The first half is obvious, but what is the latter half referring to? All the runes with triggerable features already recharge on a short or long rest .

dnd 5e – How do runes work? Can a Rune Knight forge them?

Rules-as-written, runes as described in the Rune Knight’s class feature do not, as you note, create anything that could really be sold. So no, if you want to just like “make a fire rune to sell”, that’s not really an option. However, that said, I always prefer to look for ways to let players do something cool rather than telling them ‘no’, unless there’s a really good reason to refuse them.

This sounds like a great time to flex your DM muscles and let this character use a form of magic item crafting. Pick existing magic items that fit within the conceptual/thematic space of the runes the character knows, enforce all the usual requirements of time and special components, let knowledge of the runes count as the necessary “spellcasting” prerequisite for crafting, and you can either make him hunt down formulas or just declare that he knows some of them based on comparing his level to the rarity of the items in question.

For example, with a Fire rune, he could craft a flame tongue sword, a ring of fire resistance, or other items that are fire-related; with a Cloud rune, he can create items related to weather creation and control, or to illusions. You could also have him inscribing runes on bits of breakable material to create potions and elixirs in an alternate form, if they fit thematically. (I would use this latter as my preferred item if I were carving runes for sale.)

There really shouldn’t be any balance concerns about letting “non-spellcasters” craft magic items. Thematically, a rune knight is clearly connected to physical crafting to harness magical power, if not spellcasting per-se, and the only reason to be concerned about spreading around item-creation capacity would be if you had a lot of PCs trying to all assist with the task in order to reduce the number of days required. You might have to lay down the law at some point to say “your magic is very different from the wizard’s, so you can’t really help each other on crafting projects”, but even that is probably not needed unless it becomes a serious problem.

dnd 5e – How do runes work in D&D 5e? Can a Rune Knight forge them?

One of my players, new to D&D, is playing a Rune Knight, but in his background he’s a son of merchants, and he asked me if he can produce runes to use or sell. Now, I’m aware that from the Rune Knight’s class features there is nothing of the sort, but it does grant proficiency with smith’s tools, so he wanted to know if it would be possible for him to create simple runes. I have my doubts on this, because he’s no spellcaster and usually you need to know the spell to write a scroll of it, but the Rune Knight is affine to the rune magic indeed.
So I wanted to ask: how do runes work in D&D 5e? And, if this isn’t already included in the answer to the first question, could a Rune Knight inscribe one? How, and with what costs and times?

dnd 5e – Can a Rune Knight fighter use the Giant’s Might feature to become Large in a 5-foot-wide passage (by “squeezing” as soon as they become Large)?

This is largely up to the DM to determine, but it’s probably worth talking about the reason for that clause.

In general, sections like these are just meant to tell everyone involved what the options are: “you become large” or “you don’t grow bigger”. It implicitly tells the DM and player that you can’t use this power to grow large and break open a coffin you’re trapped in, or burst your chains, or explode a purple worm from inside, or whatever.

Both players and DMs have a long history of attempting to treat any size-changing effect as if size change were an unstoppable force, whether it’s a creature doing it or an item (“I put one end of the Compliant Staff against the wall and the other end against the stone door, and command it to grow!”) Worse, how to rule the power can easily become a point of contention: “I use my Giant’s Might to become big and explode out of the coffin!” “Okay you become large. You are crushed to jelly against the inside of the coffin, roll up a new character.” “WHAT?! THAT IS NOT HOW IT WORKS!”

As a result, size change effects generally have some kind of explanation of what happens when there’s not enough space, which is usually “it fails” or “you get as big as you can given the space”.

In other words, there isn’t really a balance issue whether the DM decides you become large and have to squeeze or the ability just doesn’t work (though I’d probably have you squeeze because we all saw Alice in Wonderland get stuck inside the White Rabbit’s house and it’s hilarious). Rather, the benefit is in giving a clear and concise answer about what happens when squeezing isn’t a possibility.

dnd 5e – How cramped a location before ‘you lack the room to become large’ as a rune knight?

Run Knight’s can get big using Giant’s Might (Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything, p.45):

If you lack the room to become Large, your size doesn’t change.

I know that large creatures can squeeze into 5ft wide corridors, but does that mean you can become large and immediately be squeezed? OR does the ‘lack of room’ imply that you shouldn’t be squeezed?

PHB p.192 says:

Squeezing into a Smaller Space: A creature can squeeze through a space that is large enough for a creature one size smaller than it. Thus, a Large creature can squeeze through a passage that’s only 5 feet wide. While squeezing through a space, a creature must spend 1 extra foot for every foot it moves there, and it has disadvantage on attack rolls and Dexterity saving throws. Attack rolls against the creature have advantage while it’s in the smaller space.

So it seems possible for a Rune Knight to become large, then squeeze into a narrow corridor, but could you start in the narrow corridor and immediately squeeze? Assume for now this is used during combat, where squeezing rules apply.

dnd 5e – Does a Rune Knight fighter using the Giant’s Might feature get a bonus to their weapon’s damage?

The description of the Giant’s Might feature for the Rune Knight fighter in Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything (p. 45) says that their weapons and armor grow with them, meaning their sword would be large/oversized.

Giant weapons roll double the dice. Would a Rune Knight fighter using the Giant’s Might feature benefit from this?

Does a rune knight using giants might get the damage bonus to weapon damage [closed]

Giant weapons roll double the dice. Would a rune knight using giants might benefit from this. The book says their weapons and armor grow with them, meaning their sword would be large/ oversized

loops – Rune is received but struct is not received from chan

I have encountered odd behavior of golang 1.16. For one of my projects I needed to iterate over runes in string. So, I created a simple iterator looks like:

func iterRunes(s string) <-chan rune {
    runes := make(chan rune);
    go func() {
        defer close(runes);
        for _, char := range s {
            runes <- char;
        }
    } ()
    return runes;
}

It works perfectly, but I also needed to enumerate values yielding from this one. So, I have written another one looks like:

func enumRunes(runes <-chan rune) <-chan struct {int; rune} {
    eRunes := make(chan struct {int; rune});
    go func() {
        defer close(eRunes);
        i := 0;
        for r := range runes {
            eRunes <- struct {int; rune} {i, r};
            i++;
        }
    } ()
    return eRunes;
}

It also works perfectly. But if I try to combine them like enumRunes(iterRunes(pattern)), I encounter a problem. I have two code snippet to show.

The first one is:

    tmp := enumRunes(iterRunes(pattern))
    z := <-tmp;
    for z.int < utf8.RuneCountInString(pattern) {
        fmt.Println("z = <- tmp;")
        fmt.Println(z)
        z = <- tmp;
    }

And its output is like:

...
z = <- tmp;
{0 0}
{0 0}
z = <- tmp;
{0 0}
{0 0}
z = <- tmp;
{0 0}
{0 0}
z = <- tmp;
...

Here z is of type struct. So, I got into an infinite loop because the struct is not updated for some reason.
And the second snippet:

    tmp := iterRunes(pattern)
    z := <-tmp;
    for qq := 0; qq < utf8.RuneCountInString(pattern); qq++ {
        fmt.Println("z = <- tmp;")
        fmt.Println(z)
        z = <- tmp;
    }

Here z is of type rune and it works fine.
The question is why z in the first snippet isn’t updated.
Thank you in advance.

dnd 5e – Can the Rune Knight’s runes only be placed on materials that can be carved?

TCoE’s Rune Knight fighter subclass gains proficiency in smith’s tools (i.e. metalworking), and its first major feature is called Rune Carver, which says:

…you can touch a number of objects equal to the number of runes you know, and you inscribe a different rune onto each of the objects. To be eligible, an object must be a weapon, suit of armor, a shield, a piece of jewelry, or something else you can wear or hold in a hand.

The association with smithing, the use of the words “carver” and “inscribe,” and the specific examples chosen suggest that the runes must be carved into a substance like wood, metal, leather, or stone. However, nothing in the rules’ mechanics seems to truly constrain this. The criterion that the object must be something “you can wear or hold in a hand” is quite broad.

Can you touch an object that’s wearable or holdable but unable to be carved (like a sheet of parchment or a linen shirt) and still cause the rune to be magically “inscribed” on it?
