Hi all, in my home game I replaced Elves and Dwarfs with Gnomes to represent demihumans. I have several classes for them all which take Gnome 1 as a minimum to inject a little magic flavour. But I have never really seen Ventriloqism, as an innate spell, get used.
I was tempted to just swap it out for Chameleon, also an illusion spell and fitting in with the gnomish ‘blends into the terrain’ thing that is often a part of forest or rock gnome writeups.
But... before I do... maybe if I had some tips on good (regular) uses of ventriloquism it may help me to not replace it. I know it can have situational uses, but for newer players that have this are there any examples that are more common in application?
