Make means for the goodest good lady in area – this week we’re enjoying Dungeons and Dragons with Cosmo the Spacedog!
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 introduced a brand new member to the workforce within the goodest lady in all of area, Cosmo the Spacedog! In case you’re not very conversant in Cosmo, their backstory, or their background within the comics, Mars has you lined with an explainer over right here. And now that all of us have the fundamentals lined, I feel we are able to all agree that each D&D social gathering wants good lady within the combine. So this week, we’re enjoying D&D with…
Cosmo the Spacedog
Initially, I needed to make a participant character for Cosmo. However this can be a difficult one. There aren’t any dogfolk species in D&D 5E with out digging by way of some homebrew. I thought-about making a Leonin character and switching some issues round for taste, but it surely wasn’t even the one block I found.
What class would Cosmo be? Psychic powers or Psionics are the crux of her powers, however Psionics nonetheless solely exist in a restricted means in 5E. There are a couple of feats and a few UA subclasses, however nothing has made its means into the official books but.
So I made a decision to go in a barely completely different route with this one and make an NPC or monster sheet for Cosmo. Yeah, I do know they’re the goodest and never a monster, however typically pleasant NPCs have sheets that look so much like monsters.
To make Cosmo, there are actually two issues which can be vital to seize. First, that is at first a canine. She’s a wise canine with a protracted lifespan who can stand as much as a few of the greatest baddies within the galaxy. However we’re nonetheless speaking a couple of canine right here. So I seemed on the wolf monster sheet for some fundamentals. Eager senses, Pack Ways, and Chew are all quintessential canine behaviors. And Cosmo’s pack could be whoever she’s teamed up with; it doesn’t must be different canines and even different animals. And Chew, like unarmed assaults, ought to simply be a given on some sheets.
After that, I needed to give attention to Cosmo’s psychic powers. And so they’re fundamental, however they’re efficient. Telepathy and Telekinesis are based mostly on the feats. And it’s not unprecedented for her to make use of her powers as a psychic blast assault or weapon, so I used to be certain to provide Cosmo an Vitality Blast as properly.
In canon, Cosmo can maintain her personal in some fairly massive fights, and I don’t know if this model essentially may. However she could be an ideal NPC addition to your group. Whether or not that’s a brief assist or a extra permeant workforce member could be as much as your DM.
How would you make Cosmo the Spacedog for D&D? Did you see the most recent Guardians of the Galaxy but? What film, present, comedian, e-book, or sport ought to we make sheets from subsequent time? Tell us within the feedback!
