Disguise Self Tips & Notes

  • Note that appearance cannot be fine tuned more than just race and gender, nor can specific characters be imitated.

Differences from 5th Edition D&D:

  • In 5E, the caster is limited in changing their height: an elf can't disguise themself as a halfling, for instance.
  • Obviously, the tabletop version of the spell is more free-form, allowing the caster to change their appearance however they like, rather than into a pre-set list of race and gender.

      So far I found aside getting specific racial reaction it also give you a few advantages. For example entrances too tiny for other races can be entered if you use it to turn into a halfling.

        Whenever I try to use this spell it just says "invalid target" no mater where or when i use it. Not sure if this problem is just me or not because I can't find anyone else talking about it.

          Its a shame I can't use this to look like a specific NPC. Wanted to look like a NPC to sneak through, but it seems this only lets you change race and gender.
