How does Inspiration Work?

By September 28, 2020November 2nd, 2020House Rules

What is Inspiration?

“Inspiration” is a mechanic in Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition designed to reward players with a potentially massive boon. A player with inspiration can expend their inspiration to modify dice rolls in their favor, leading to critical clutch moments.

Gaining Inspiration

The official D&D 5e rules allow the DM to decide when a player is granted inspiration, typically when a player goes above and beyond in roleplaying or when completing something epic/funny/awesome. In Chaos of the Feywild, we’re giving that power to our viewers. After each episode, viewers will be allowed to vote on their favorite moment. The character who made that moment happen will be granted inspiration for the following episode.

Using Inspiration

When a character has gained inspiration, they can use it in any of the following ways:

  • Elect to make any attack roll or skill check at advantage
  • Re-roll ANY die roll, and choose the better of the 2
  • Force any other creature to roll an attack or skill check at disadvantage
  • Automatically add a +3 to any d20 roll
