Level 10 Update: New Tricks, Who Dis

Level 10 Update: New Tricks, Who Dis

Thanks to @quackamos for this art piece!

With Fjord’s decision to take a step into the Wildmother’s service as a paladin, he and the rest of the Nein arrived at level 10! There’s a pretty wide variety of upgrades this level, even before Fjord’s multiclass. He won’t see most of the paladin features until he takes a second paladin level, but for the rest of the Nein, pretty much everyone gets something unique.

In fact, the only thing in common is that every other spellcaster (Nott included) gets an additional cantrip. Half the M9 get archetype features, and the rest get general class features. Jester, Caduceus, and Caleb all get an additional 5th level spell slot per day, but poor Fjord still has to make do with his 2.

Level 9 Update: NEIN

Level 9 Update: NEIN

Thanks to @johannamation for this art piece, and thanks to @Anodesu for the character portraits!

Welcome to level 9, Mighty Nein! At level 9, all characters receive an improvement to their proficiency bonus (now at +4), so all attack rolls, ability checks, and saving throws that a character is proficient (or expert) in get a bump. Everyone’s spell save/monk ability DCs also go up. Most of the spellcasters now also have access to 5th level spells, and a certain monk can now parkour a little more easily.

Level 8 Update: More Feats and ASIs

Level 8 Update: More Feats and ASIs

Thanks to @Queddajaw for this art piece!

ALL THE ABILITY SCORE IMPROVEMENTS! No, but seriously, as Matt said at the end of Episode 49, all of the Mighty Nein receive their choice of either an ability score increase or a feat this level. In addition, all the spellcasters get additional spell slots or spells known (or both), and both clerics get domain features and improvements to their Destroy Undead abilities.

Because of the wide variety of possibilities, we chose to delay our level update until we could narrow down the options, but as you’ll see, there are still a few unknowns. All of the Mighty Nein (except Yasha) have now maxed out their primary ability scores (barring certain special items), and Caleb, Nott, and Caduceus have each tacked on a feat to their already-diverse skill sets.

Level 6 Update: Archetype Bonuses

Level 6 Update: Archetype Bonuses

Thanks to @Peepadore for this art piece!

With the Iron Shepherds defeated and their kidnapped party members restored, The Mighty Nein has leveled up! Most of the spellcasters get to learn/cast more spells, and just about everyone gets a powerful class archetype feature. Some get more than one (we’re looking at you, Beau).
