[RPG] Can the Telekinetic Feat from Tasha’s knock a creature prone


Tasha's makes official a new feat called Telekinetic which allows a caster, as a bonus action, to telekinetically shove one creature. It goes on to dictate you can move the creature 5 feet toward or away from you. So, is it a shove limited to only the 5 feet of movement or is it shove as defined in PHB where you can also opt to knock a creature prone?

Best Answer

The feat does what it says it does

The Telekinetic feat enables you to attempt to shove a creature, specifically to move it 5 feet closer or further away. The feat does not enable you to shove to knock the target creature prone, as opposed to shoving as a bonus action using the Shield Master feat (which does not specify whether you have to push or knock prone).
